Thanks for visiting my website, a place for friends and family to check up on, or find out about, the different parts of my life. By visiting the links on the left, you can find out where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to, either as a writer/lecturer, as a musician, as an academician, or as a pumpkin carver. You’ll also find information on my newest release, Panic in Detroit (2019), along with my novel, The Billionth Monkey (2015), and my other books including Forgotten Templars: The Untold Origins of Ordo Templi Orientis (2012), the revised and expanded 2nd edition of Perdurabo: The Life of Aleister Crowley (2010), The Weiser Concise Guide to Aleister Crowley (2009), and more. In addition, pictured below are the most recent books to which I’ve contributed (clicking on the three covers below will take you to an external website).


Trans-States: The Art of Crossing Over (2019) reproduces the text of my opening keynote address at the first Trans-States conference at the University of Northampton, England, on September 9, 2016. My topic–Transmutation and Transmission of a New Iconography in the Thoth Tarot–examined Aleister Crowley and Frieda Lady Harris’s collaboration on the deck, with particular emphasis on Harris’s creative process. I’m happy to be able to share a recording of the talk below. The print copy can be ordered from Fulgur.

The video below offers an overview of what you can find in Panic in Detroit (2019), a significantly revised and expanded version of the 2005 edition: this edition is over twice as long! This video montage was originally shown as part of my opening remarks at the National O.T.O. Conference held in Detroit in 2011 to highlight Detroit’s unique connection to Aleister Crowley.
