From January 2013 to March 2013 a working was performed in the Mojave desert, east of Los Angeles. This working was a continuation of a working that occurred in the same area during the same calendar periods in 1946. The effects of this working was not immediate, but rather, was  a setting in motion of forces that have begun and continue to accrue, building up to a desired and planned birth of a magickal childe. You may consider the beginning of this working as the insemination and the current period as the gestation period. December will be the birth of a new being, one which will enter through a portal originally opened in 1946 and widened and prepared for an induced birthing in 2013. The number of years between the two is important. But we can say no more. What we can do is recommend a recent book currently found on TPB, that will give you pointers in directions that can help you understand what was done, why it was done and what to expect from it’s results. -V.A.

One of the most famous – yet least understood – manifestations of Thelemic thought has been the works of Kenneth Grant, the British occultist and one-time intimate of Aleister Crowley, who discovered a hidden world within the primary source materials of Crowley’s Aeon of Horus. Using complementary texts from such disparate authors as H.P. Lovecraft, Jack Parsons, Austin Osman Spare, and Charles Stansfeld Jones (“Frater Achad”), Grant formulated a system of magic that expanded upon that delineated in the rituals of the OTO: a system that included elements of Tantra, of Voudon, and in particular that of the Schlangekraft recension of the Necronomicon, all woven together in a dark tapestry of power and illumination.

The Dark Lord follows the themes in the writings of Kenneth Grant, H.P. Lovecraft, and the Necronomicon, uncovering further meanings of the concepts of the famous writers of the Left Hand Path. It is for Thelemites, as well as lovers of the Lovecraft Mythos in all its forms, and for those who find the rituals of classical ceremonial magic inadequate for the New Aeon.

Traveling through the worlds of religion, literature, and the occult, Peter Levenda takes his readers on a deeply fascinating exploration on magic, evil, and The Dark Lord as he investigates of one of the most neglected theses in the history of modern occultism: the nature of the Typhonian Current and its relationship to Aleister Crowley’s Thelema and H.P. Lovecraft’s Necronomicon.
