-Aleister Crowley

To say this reads like a Mike Carrey graphic novel knocked up a Magick for dummies book doesn’t quite do this justice. It’s fun, funny, original, informative, plus it reads very quickly despite giving your vocabulary a healthy tickle. Anyone with an interest in urban fantasy should definitely give it a go. This is one of the most fun books I’ve read in a while despite the playful verbosity.

In Moonchild, we follow a satirical version of Crowley as he tries to trick a God into incarnating in his unborn child. As we are guided through a tour of the esoteric underground, we meet all sorts of interesting characters and gain access to secrets of white and black magick, which is likely a combination of ancient wisdom and Crowley screwing with the heads of anyone taking it too seriously.
