If you are interested in the arcane, the occult, the erotic or the highs and lows of drug addiction, then this book is for you. A piece of fiction inspired by Crowley’s own experience of drugs and first published in 1922, Diary of a Drug Fiend follows Sir Peter Pendragon, a veteran pilot of World War I, who comes into money and saves himself from life-sapping indolence by marrying Louise Laleham, a devotee of the occultist Basil King Lamus. Moonchild features a magical war between magicians over an unborn child. The Book of the Law and The Book of Lies are vital components of the Crowley canon, White Lies is poetry and Household Gods is a play.
