- Thelema Now! Guest: Richard Kaczynski – "Panic in Detroit"
A Thelema Now favorite is back! Author and lecturer Richard Kaczynski talks about the newly revised and re-released “Panic In Detroit.” At 400 pages, this release is significantly expanded from the original 2006 limited edition. It includes original essays on the time of Aleister Crowley, Charles Stansfeld Jones, Wilfred Talbot Smith, Cecil Frederick Russell, and Dr. J. P. Kowal in Detroit; the newspaper accounts that followed in their wake; and the legacy of the lost crate of rare Crowley books. In addition, Panic in Detroit reproduces 40 letters between Crowley and his circle; 55 newspaper articles documenting the “mess in the press”; selected transcripts from the Universal Book Stores’ bankruptcy hearings, in which Crowley, O.T.O. and The Equinox figure prominently; and much more.
You can buy it on Amazon and booksellers everywhere!

I need to go lay down now and rest my brain awhile.
