Volume I: A New Order of the Ages
Book 5: Bibliography
Nota bene: The works cited in this bibliography are not, by and large, necessary to a successful
career in Magick, though they can be extremely useful academic and practical tools for one. They do,
however, contain understanding and wisdom necessary to becoming a truly civilized human being –
which, after all, is what Magick, or any other true Way, is all about.
Also, it should be remembered that all philological categories are, in the last analysis, arbitrary,
chosen for our notions of what the most important or salient aspects of any given work might be. But
reality is not ultimately partitioned in any real way. Biology, medicine, psychology, ethology, sociology,
forensics, law, history, and ecology are all just different viewpoints, some broader than others, on the
general phenomenon of Life, human and otherwise, in the same way in which algebra, geometry and
calculus are all just aspects of one underlying realm of study, mathematics; literature, music, painting,
and ballet are simply different expressions of the creative drive; astronomy, chemistry, physics, the life
sciences and the social sciences all study the same universe. That I have here listed, e.g. Richard
Grossinger’s Planet Medicine in the section reserved for works on medicine rather than the one for
anthropological materials or the one for biology is due only to the need to put it somewhere, in only one
or, at most, a very few of the many possible bibliographical categories, so that I wouldn’t make the size
of this bibliography any more overwhelmingly unwieldy than it already is, and that one seemed to be
about the most reasonable I could think of at the time. So if you feel that any work cited herein would be
more usefully cited in a different category than the one I’ve placed it in here, please feel free to add it to
that list in your own personal copy of this work.

According to the disclaimer:

This occult Magazine may, by qualification, contain controversial views. Articles

therefore most likely will but may definitely not reflect the views of the Editor or of the
Sorcerer’s Apprentice. We uphold your right to decide for yourself. The LOT is a
major World Forum for the presentation and discussion of leading edge world views

years of age. Nothing herein is intended to incite any person to actions which are
unlawful or irresponsible.
(Vol. V, No. 1, p. 1)

Vol. IV, No. 3 (Number 21): I especially enjoyed this one because it includes, due to some utterly
incomprehensible lapse in the editor’s otherwise impeccable taste and enormous editorial
competence, Yrs Truly’s “The Brag of the Female SubGenius (Mark I),” but it also contains a wealth
of other material, all topical, fascinating, and well-written, including: an article on the history and
culture of the Druids of ancient Britain; silence as a Magickal aid; the psychospirituality of
computers; potential peril for neo-Pagans and occultists generated by occult sensation-mongers;
spoken and written language as the bedrock of Magickal power; the God Odin as a force in today’s
world; and much more.

Vol. IV, No. 4 (Number 22): Aside from its one glaring flaw, inclusion of Yrs Truly’s “The Church of
the SubGenius: Beer-Bust of the Gods!”, this fascinating issue is a treasure-trove of articles on
everything from local English Wiccan shamans, Magick and quantum mechanics, hereditary
witchcraft, solipsism among occultists and its sociopolitical origins and implications, Charles
Manson, Tarot, Gnostic philosophy, and more.

Vol. IV, No. 6 (Number 24): This issue is concerned with religious and psychospiritual freedom, and
all related issues. It includes articles on mind-control, transcendental astrology, souls apparently so
old they are bordering on spiritual Alzheimer’s, aggravated hypocrisy and ignorance among
occultists and neo-Pagans, superstition and other occult psychopathologies, occult sociopathology,
and more. The article on the Temple of Set and “Laurel and Hardy Satanism” is especially

Vol. V, No. 1 (Number 25): This issue is concerned with the nature of belief and its impact on reality;
government attempts to ban alternative therapies; various intriguing articles on LaVeyan Satanism,
Thelema, and the O.T.O.; several fascinating regular columns; and many other features and articles
on numerous subjects, all of which are well worth the reader’s time and attention. Timely, highly
informative, and imbued with an exquisite sense of proportion and humor.

[The author’s] . . . investigation of political and historical thought extends from

ancient Mesopotamian time down to the present day. The universal beliefs in a
primeval Golden Age of human innocence and a future New Age of human perfection
are examined [here] through Greek and Roman classicism, Judaism, Christianity,
Marxism and the contemporary myth of progress; belief systems closely linked to the
concept of a universe regulated by precise mathematical laws and planetary cycles.
Campion shows how concepts of linear and cyclical time have been invoked throughout
history to express successive societies’ views of their place in . . . the cosmos.

An outstanding reference work for anyone interested in calendars of any kind or in need of
information on a specific calendar, this work presents a wealth of calendars from those of ancient
Babylonia, Judea, Greece, and Rome to those used today, from cultures ranging from the Middle
East and the Mediterranean to Africa, India, Southeast Asia, the Far East, Central America, and
modern Western nations. People divide time based on a variety of factors, including geography,
astronomical knowledge, politics, religion, and so forth; calendars may date from the birth of a
religious leader, the ascension of a monarch, or any other arbitrarily-chosen origin point. There are
Solar calendars, Lunar calendars, market-day calendars based on 30-day months comprising three
ten-day “weeks,” and numerous others. This work describes and discusses all important calendars
for which information was available at the time it was compiled, taking the reader through history
from the Babylonians and Egyptians to modern times. Rather than being a scholarly dissertation on
how calendars are constructed, it is instead a handbook offering basic information on the structure of
calendars and extensive tables for quick conversions. A must for scholars, astrologers, Magickians,
historians, anthropologists, and anyone else interested in the humanity measures time and the ways in
we have constructed calendars down the ages and across the world.

New York: Arkana/Penguin, 1989.

Major changes or crises in our lives are usually signified by the transits of Uranus,
Neptune and Pluto in our birthcharts. Although Uranian disruption feels quite different
from Neptunian confusion or the pulverizing impact of Pluto, it is the transits of the
outer planets that most often mark our personal turning points. Each offers its own
distinctive dilemmas, its particular type of trauma, test or trial. In this . . . book
Howard Sasportas blends his deep knowledge of psychology with . . . case histories
from his work as an astrologer in order to illuminate what happens as the outer planets
transit the chart. In this way, he suggests, we can learn to collaborate with the
inevitable, to find the meaning and pattern behind periods of upheaval and to discover
new depths in ourselves. Above all, we can learn to use our life crises as opportunities
for growth and development.

Clow, Barbara Hand. Chiron: Rainbow Bridge Between the Inner and Outer Planets. St. Paul, MN:
Llewellyn Publications, 1992.

The planetoid Chiron, discovered in 1977, has proved to be one of the most valuable keys to the
understanding of the modern spirit ever discovered by students of the esoteric Arts and Sciences.
Located in an extremely eccentric orbit between Saturn and Uranus, Chiron at once embodies the
seemingly antithetical qualities of restriction and freedom, crippling and power, loss and enrichment.
As Thomas Jefferson and his colleagues taught, liberty does not entail license; true liberty requires
responsibility and self-discipline. And as Helen Keller and Stephen Hawking have showed the whole
world by their valorous, splendid lives, sometimes achievement and power only come at the price of
the most tragic, terrible losses. Chiron is the God of the Bridge between Saturn’s Abyss of Night and
Uranus’s Dawn of Freedom and Hope, the Pathfinder for humanity in the age of nuclear terror and
ecocatastrophe. A valuable resource of the library of any modern astrologer, this book is a highly
useful guide to His nature and influence through the Signs and Houses, which also explores His
historical impact upon us all.

Chiron’s discovery in 1977, examines Chiron’s historical impact via numerous astrological charts of
significant events and important births of this age, analyzes His astromythological nature, explores
His influence through the Signs and Houses and in aspect to other Planets, and provides a highly

Reinhart, Melanie. Chiron and the Healing Journey: An Astrological and Psychological Perspective.
New York: Penguin/Arkana Books, 1989.

The Centaur Chiron, half-man, half-horse, represents a spirit of philosophical independence,

compassion, and a sense of trust in our inner selves. He is also the archetypal figure of the Shaman,
the being who, having been undeservedly horribly wounded by life and the universe, not only
survives the wounding but actually manages to capitalize on it in the form of treasures of mind,
spirit, or body made available to the nascent Shaman only as a result of that wounding. Chiron is
brother in spirit to the knight-errant who goes into the bowels of a vast cavern in an attempt to find
and do battle with a great dragon that has denned up there, a dragon which has been terrorizing and
devastating the countryside. Somehow, the valorous but woefully inexperienced and naive knight
manages to kill the dragon there without being killed himself. Dragging himself dazed, mauled, and
badly burned from the dead dragon’s lair, the knight recovers a little, then goes back in once more to
take the dragon’s ears or crest or head as a trophy so that he may thereby reassure the good folk of
the countryside that indeed their horrible tormentor is dead – and that’s when he finds that all these
years, the great dragon was also guarding a gigantic hoard of treasure, one stolen from the treasuries
of emperors and kings and noblemen and merchants from hundreds of miles around, or appropriated
from the baggage of pack-trains and caravansaries and lone wayfarers which the dragon preyed upon.
The knight now has wealth that could buy and sell the crowned heads of the world dozens of times
over – and all because he faced down the dragon, took his terrible wounds, and pressed on to kill the

terrible beast in spite of everything. That is Chiron. In this work, which is rich in anecdotes from
numerous mythologies and includes a thoughtful historical and religious perspective, Melanie
Reinhart has produced one of the best resources available to the modern practicing astrologer. She
shows that the influence of Chiron varies strikingly between urban cultures, especially our own
modern, high-tech way of life, and those of “primitive” people in “marginal” environments, where
population density is extremely low and the people are not cut off from the natural world by
countless distractions and physical barriers, implying that the same is true for all other heavenly
bodies and phenomena – the nature of the influence of the Planets depends as much upon our basic
assumptions about existence, our way of life and our basic biology as it does anything else. The
mythological Chiron was also a pioneer and a pathfinder, and this ground-breaking work is a perfect
example of those aspects of His influence upon us. Superbly annotated, with a highly useful
bibliography, a wealth of historical data and example charts, and an extensive and detailed
ephemeris for Chiron. A must for any serious astrologer today. Inconjuncts and Other “Minor” Aspects

Ancient myths described an eclipse as the Sun or Moon being swallowed by a

and tail of the dragon. Older references and Eastern astrology still call the Moon’s
North Node the Dragon’s Head and the South Node the Dragon’s Tail.

This remarkable book discusses the nodes of the Moon, the Planets, and the asteroids, the terminal
points of the lines of intersection of the planes of the orbits of these bodies around Sol with that of
the Solar orbit of our world. The author gives a complete definition and description of these points
and their general meaning in the horoscope, then gives separate discussions on the nodes of each of
the Planets, Luna, and the asteroids. Useful tables for the heliocentric positions of the Planetary
Nodes, general node tables for the Planets, and others are given, as well.

A must for any serious astrological researcher, this book contains a wealth of useful data on
numerous people, including famous personalities as well as individuals who, though unknown to the
general public, nevertheless are of great interest to the astrologer because of the correspondence
between their natal charts and their personal lives. This is an astrological data reference collection
which contains the following categories of information: (1) Natal charts based on accurate data,
accompanied for the most part by short but useful biographies or autobiographies. (2) Natal charts
with no known source of origin, noted as same, such as birth times quoted from astrological
magazines or books that don’t supply the source of origin; data presented ambiguously, as from a
“personal source,” without stating the source of origin; unnamed bi0ographies that can’t be checked;
and approximate times from biographies. (3) Dirty data, i.e., all data with two or more conflicting
statements of date, time, or place, indicating that at least one and possibly all have been rectified or
speculated without designation. The book is organized into the following sections: introduction;
bibliography of sources; data source abbreviations; time-zone designations; time conversion table;
“A” (accurate data) and “B” (biographies and autobiographies) data charts; “C” (no source of origin)
and “DD” (dirty data) data; footnotes; “A” and “B” data listed by month/day; “A” and “B” data
listed by year; “C” and “DD” data listed by month/day; and “C” and “D” data listed by year.

insightful things to say about the psychology of the psychopath and that of infamous historical
personalities such as Adolph Hitler. Like the other works in this series, it is organized in the same
basic way that the prototype, The American Book of Charts, is organized.

We all know of the truly extraordinary psychic feats of Edgar Cayce, but what
about his failures?
New Magicks for a New Age
Volume 1: A New Order of the Ages – Appendices: Appendix 5, Bibliography
Page 8

Hugh Lynn Cayce and Edgar Evans Cayce lovingly and honestly recount several
instances when their father’s predictions were either misleading or hopelessly wrong.
Theirs is, however, not an attempt to discredit the psychic ability of their father.
Rather, it is a method by which they hope to clarify those factors that are involved in
the accuracy of psychic data.
Why, on several occasions, did Cayce give life readings for a person who had died
by the time of the reading – without mentioning the fact of death?
Why has no one found the buried wealth at either White Hill or Kelly’s Ford where
Cayce plotted out their locations?
And why did Cayce’s predictions falter in the cases of Amelia Earhart and the
Lindbergh kidnapping?
Edgar Cayce’s failures were few. Yet why were there any at all? This book is an
attempt to answer just that query. It becomes evident that something ran interference in
the readings Edgar Cayce gave for these exploits, what Edgar Evans and Hugh Lynn
call ‘psychic static.’
No one as yet understands the source of a psychic’s power to see what the rest of us
are blinded to. It is considerably more difficult, and even more significant, to
understand what can go wrong, as in the tales encountered in this book. Here, Edgar
Evans Cayce and Hugh Lynn Cayce present a coherent analysis of the nature of psychic
perception built around the readings of America’s best-known clairvoyant, Edgar
Cayce, their father.

Drosnin, Michael. The Bible Code. New York: Simon & Schuster, 1997.

For three thousand years a code in the Bible has remained hidden. Now it has been
unlocked by computer – and it may reveal our future.
The code was broken by an Israeli mathematician, who presented the proof in a
major science journal, and it has been confirmed by famous mathematicians around the
This book is the first full account of a scientific discovery that may change the
world, told by a skeptical secular reporter who became part of the story.
The three-thousand-year-old Bible code foretells events that happened thousands of
years after the Bible was written. It foresaw both Kennedy assassinations, the
Oklahoma City bombing, the election of Bill Clinton – everything from World War II
to Watergate, from the Holocaust to Hiroshima, from the Moon landing to the collision
of a comet with Jupiter.
In a few dramatic cases detailed predictions were found in advance – and the
events then happened exactly as predicted. The date the Gulf War would begin was
found weeks before the war started. The date of the Jupiter collision was found months
before the blast.
The author of this book, investigate reporter Michael Drosnin, himself found the
assassination of Yitzhak Rabin predicted in the Bible more than a year before the
murder – and personally warned the Prime Minister.
After the assassination happened, as predicted, when predicted, he was asked to
brief the new Prime Minister of Israel and the chief of its famed intelligence agency,
the Mossad.
The book is based on Drosnin’s five-year investigation. The author interviewed all
the experts, here and abroad. He spent many weeks with the world-class mathematician
who discovered the code, Dr. Eliyahu Rips, and he met with famous mathematicians at
Harvard, Yael, and Hebrew University. He talked to a senior code-breaker at the top
secret U.S. National Security Agency, who confirmed that there is a code in the Bible
that does reveal the future.
No one yet knows if the Bible code accurately foretells what is yet to come. But
the code may be a warning to this world of unprecedented danger, perhaps the real
Apocalypse, a nuclear World War.
New Magicks for a New Age
Volume 1: A New Order of the Ages – Appendices: Appendix 5, Bibliography

In any event, the Bible code forces us to accept what the Bible itself can only ask
us to believe – that we are not alone.
And it raises a question for us all – does the code describe an inevitable future, or a
series of possible futures whose ultimate outcomes we can still decide?

-- From the inside jacket blurb

This is one of the most terrifying books I have ever read. I say “one of the most,” because it only
reveals its terror by cross-match with Aleister Crowley’s Liber Al vel Legis and Nostradamus’
Centuries, taken together with the fact of the approaching advent of the “Millennium Bug,” which is
actually a computer software design flaw that could cause civilization in the developed world to
crash at the turn of the year 2000 (this is written on October 11, 1998 e.v.). Like Crowley’s Liber Al,
there was a time-lock on the Bible code before which it would not be intelligible or even
discoverable: the invention of the modern computer. Many of the things discussed in Liber Al, such
as the “philosophical” equation “2=0,” make no real sense except in the context of the modern binary
computer, whose calculations are done by means of Boolean algebra, in which 2 (base 10) = 1 + 1 =
10 (base 2) = 0 (with 1 to carry). Similarly, the Bible code could not have been discovered before
the invention of modern computers, without which the calculations necessary to revealing it could
not have been performed even by a large team of human beings within less than several dozen
centuries. Like many of the things predicted by the Bible code, Chapter III of Liber Al predicts the
complete destruction of civilization and a period of many centuries before civilization can be
restored. In turn, in Nostradamus’ Centuries are numerous predictions all pointing to a time about
now, when “a great wall that divides a city at this time is cast aside” (the Berlin Wall), three brothers
“in the new lands of America” shall come to power but two are assassinated and “all shall die before
their hour” (the Kennedys), etc., predictions which are mirrored by many predictions of the Bible
code as well as a few in Liber Al. All three describe things that only make sense in the context of
modern computers – and it is because of modern computer technology that Western civilization itself
may crash and burn on 1/1/2000 e.v. None of the three authors knew any of the others –
Nostradamus – Michele de Nostradame – was born in 1503 e.v. and died in 1556 e.v.; Aleister
Crowley was born in 1875 e.v. and died in 1947 e.v.; and Michael Drosnin was at most a very young
child at Crowley’s death, and lived a quarter of a world away from Crowley. And certainly none of
them ever designed a modern computer or programmed one, nor were any of the three responsible
for the stupidity that kept most computer software manufacturers and users from addressing the
“Y2K” or “Millennium Bug” problem – caused by the fact that COBOL programs, used by banks,
military and government institutions, and all the other large concerns upon which maintenance of our
Western high-tech civilization depends, from the beginning used only two digits for the year, rather
than three or four, which could cause havoc when the year rolls over to “00” (2000) and computers
decide that transactions taking place in the new year are occurring 99 years before those in 1999 e.v.
– far enough before the year 2000 to be able to solve the problem before it could become a problem.
Four indicators all pointing at the same thing – all having to do with computers. That scares the
living hell out of me. Let’s hope all three prognosticators are dead wrong, and that the “Millennium
Bug” turns out to be a still-born gnat.

Hogue, John. Nostradamus: The Complete Prophecies. Rockport, MA: Element Books, 1997.

For four centuries the predictions of the prophet Nostradamus have fascinated and
baffled the world as one after another has come true. As the millennium bears down
upon us, interest and speculations about what the future has in store have never been
stronger and neither have the works of the 16th-century French seer been more relevant.
In this exciting and compelling book, John Hogue offers the most comprehensive
examination of the complete prophecies of Nostradamus ever written. The result of
twenty years of research, among its treasures are a wealth of background material about
the prophet, a chronological list of the prophecies and the first complete examination of
quantum future prophecies.
Written by an expert in the study of Nostradamus, this is surely destined to become
the standard work on the prophet.

own time and culture. Exceptionally well-done.

Cassandra Aisling, who was nine years and eleven months old (which made her
very, very close to ten), didn’t care a jot what sensible people thought. She liked
strange, mysterious and magical things. So when her world got not just tilted, but
wholly, truly and topsy-turvily tangled and tumbled upside down, she boarded the
H.M.S. Basset, ready to explore the landscape of the imagination.
Pledging allegiance to the Basset’s motto, Credendo Vides . . . By Believing, One
Sees . . ., Cassandra, her skeptical older sister, Miranda, and their father, Professor
Algernon Aisling, set out in search of the ancient legends. From the flickering flight of
faeries to the mermaids’ siren songs, a labyrinth-bound Minotaur to a fire-breathing
dragon, the Aisling family witnesses firsthand the wonder of mythological worlds.
Cassandra’s adventures intertwine with her father’s scientific scribblings to present both
new tales and the essence of classic myths.
In the tradition of such favorites as Gulliver’s Travels and Around the World in 80
Days, Voyage of the Basset takes the reader on a fantastical journey of discovery.
Through richly detailed, full-color images and line drawings, magical kingdoms emerge
from a sea of dreams.

This one-volume edition of Aleister Crowley’s most important work has been produced in keeping
with Crowley’s professed goal of teaching meditation and Magick to beginners as well as advanced
students. It incorporates Crowley’s own additions, corrections and annotations for a planned new
edition of this work which, until now, was never published. It also restores numerous passages lost
in all earlier editions, by returning to the original manuscripts and typescripts. Extensively cross-
referenced, annotated, and indexed, it thoroughly documents all of Crowley’s sources and
authorities. A magnificent addition to the library of any serious Magickian or student of religion,
history, or philosophy.

is an unusual and disturbing book.
New Magicks for a New Age
Volume 1: A New Order of the Ages – Appendices: Appendix 5, Bibliography
Page 15

Basically, it is about reincarnation. In a wider sense, it is a startling, fresh

approach to physical and mental illness, uniting the thinking of an ‘analytically-
oriented’ psychiatrist with Joan Grant’s extra-sensory abilities, particularly the recalling
of past lifetimes.
Denys Kelsey, using hypnotherapy, found that many patients could be regressed
not only to infancy but also to birth, to experiences while in the womb, and even to the
moment of conception. Soon after he met Joan Grant, in 1958, he realized that by the
use of the same hypnotherapy, he could enable some patients to extend their recall to
earlier lifetimes.
Joan Grant had developed a remarkable ‘far memory,’ enabling her to recall in
minute detail previous lives, male and female, lived in dynastic Egypt, America, Italy,
England, and other places. Consequently, she was sometimes able to help her
husband’s patients by perceiving the relevant incidents of their earlier lives, thus
providing independent checks on the accuracy of their recall.
Some of the case studies described in this book rank among the most extraordinary
in the history of psychotherapeutic medicine. The authors have achieved dramatic
results in showing patients that the origin of their present problems often lies in the
events in past incarnations.
The authors fully recognize how controversial their beliefs may seem to some
people. The success of their therapy offers convincing evidence of the validity of their
approach on such diverse subjects as parenthood, dangers of jealousy, one-upmanship,
the alarming insights of infants, and the causes and effects of ghosts.

More Than Once – From the Files of America’s Most Amazing Clairvoyant! Hugh Lynn Cayce,
Director of the Association for Research and Enlightenment, editor. New York: Hawthorne Books,
Inc., 1967.

In the words of Ruth Montgomery, Edgar Cayce was “America’s greatest seer.”
A gifted professional photographer and an outstanding Sunday school teacher, a
devoted husband and father, Edgar Cayce was also the man with the most remarkable
psychic powers recorded in modern times. The ‘sleeping’ Edgar Cayce – the Edgar
Cayce in a trance state – is the man behind most of the ground-breaking advances of
our times in this field. Journeying through space and time – back to the Middle Ages,
to ancient Greece and Rome, to early Egypt – he became the modern prophet of
Drawing on Cayce’s abundant ‘readings,’ this book explores the fantastic impact of
his theories – theories rooted not in magic, but in a unique and convincing blend of
Christianity and psychology.
Today the influence of the unconscious on everyday behavior is widely accepted.
Cayce carried this concept much further – to include memories not only of painful
childhood experiences, but of other lives thousands of years back. Through his
readings, Cayce helped people reach into the depths of their unconscious, and as a
result deal with immediate problems and issues.
His theories have ethical and religious implications, too. For instance, into the
twentieth-century life of a onetime Middle Eastern philanthropist comes a woman who
in one of her past lives was his concubine. The strange twists and turns their lives took
unfold before the reader as Cayce helps them understand their supposedly inexplicable
feelings of guilt and shame.
Using the personal documents of Cayce – American Clairvoyant par excellence –
Noel Langley has written a dramatic, forceful and authoritative work.

wedding in the capital.

to kill – and to love – pledges his life to Taniko. But again and again their karma will
sweep them apart. He, to serve the outlawed Muratomo family. She, to be possessed
by the heir of the enemy Takashi clan . . . even as Kublai Khan and his wild Mongol
hordes eye Japan like a coveted jewel.

In thirteenth-century Japan, the Red Banner of the ruling Takashi dynasty was
stained with the blood of the people. The eternal love of the warrior monk Jebu and the
lovely Taniko had been thwarted by the will of the gods and the winds of battle. Now
the Zinja monk and his brilliant commander, Yukio, rally the rival Muratomo clan’s
forces, to wage again the War of the Dragons – for control of the Imperial throne.
But victory did not end their labors. The new Shogun was consumed by jealousy
and the greed of power. Jebu’s beloved, Lady Taniko, was coveted by the tyrant. And
the glittering-armored warriors of Kublai Khan were poised to strike by sea, in iron
waves, against the Sacred Islands of snow-dusted peaks and silken pavilions – against

Ibid., Volume II, from the back cover blurb

Based on the history and traditions of the Japanese ninja and Zen warrior monks, this novel
introduces a number of religious concepts and philosophical systems from Japan which suggest
intriguing ideas for research. A wonderful read, this novel can also be a useful adjunct to studies of
the history and religious culture of Japan, China, and neighboring countries. In Shike, the late Robert
Shea, who with Robert Anton Wilson authored the marvelous Illuminatus! Trilogy, captures the
essence of one of the most important periods of history, one in which both East and West were
profoundly affected by the rise and spread of the Empire of Ghengis Khan. His depictions of his
characters creates an instant identification between them and the reader, so that while reading this
novel it almost seems as if the reader were living the action. Thoroughly researched, this novel is a
wonderful and extremely valuable addition to any Magickian’s library.
