Vintage Alan Moore Interview With Shout-Outs to Crowley, Duquette and RAW

Soror Hypatia passed along a link to  a interview by Joe Gordon with the great cartoonist/author/magician Alan Moore, originally posted in 2009 at Among MANY other things, Moore recommends books for study by aspiring magicians:

“Aleister Crowley’s Magick Without Tears is quite good, because that was written for people who hadn’t really got any grasp of his sometimes esoteric occult ideas. To get the flavour of magic, they could do a lot worse than read a couple of the books by Lon Milo Duquette, one of his books in particular, My Life with the Spirits by Lon Milo Duquette gives something of the flavour of magic, and he’s a very entertaining writer. Robert Anton Wilson. His Illuminatus trilogy is of course wonderful, and does contain a lot of information about both anarchy and magic and all sorts of other things, but some of the things that he did for New Falcon Books, like Coincidance and Prometheus Rising and the, what was originally The Playboy Book of the Breast, which actually became in Wilson’s handling a kind of meditation upon female goddess energy.”
