Modern occultism has significant roots in nineteenth century fiction, and throughout the twentieth century, magicians and occultists used novels and stories to express ideas that could not be as vividly communicated through more technical writings. This presentation will survey significant writers and works of fiction feeding into and emerging from the tradition of Thelemic magick. It will also feature a brief reading from the presenter's own recent ludibrium, Erotopharmakohymnia Onorio.
