Belden Walls: The Disinformation Guide to Magick and the Occult

Post  Story "the Fray" Teller on Wed Jun 08, 2011 5:39 pm

[Hey Ashley - If you want to make up the book and contents, authors please feel free! Otherwise, I have an idea for how this could play out; your call]

Belden Walls is listed as Editor of the sensational viral-hit, The Disinformation Guide to Magick and the Occult, a work proclaiming to be a definitive look into practices arcane. The work compiles some of the best--and least--known faces in the occult world, unabashedly drawing upon everything from postmodernism to the modern beatnik:

Includes:
- An introduction by comics genius Grant Morrison, who also contributes a three-part article on Pop Magick.
- Mark Pesce, author of The Playful World, compares computer programming and spellcasting.
- Genesis P-Orridge, mother of Industrial Music and Rave culture explains how samples in a rave song can have magical consequences.
- Paul Laffoley discusses his magical artistic strategies (Metzger compares Laffoley to Merlin the Magician).
- Magical Thinking—an extended excerpt from Daniel Pinchbeck’s Breaking Open the Head.
- Nevill Drury, Australia’s most noted occult writer, writes in true Cornel Westian form, Aleister Crowley Matters
- The first ever biographical essay on Marjorie Cameron, the fascinating character from Los Angeles’ occult and beatnik scene.
- Robert Temple on how his book The Sirius Mystery’s, controversial thesis (for which he was ridiculed) was proven by the Hubble telescope twenty-five years late.
- An exclusive Anton LaVey interview by Michael Moynihan, author of best-selling book Lords of Chaos.
- Erik Davis, author of Techgnosis, looks at H. P. -Lovecraft’s Magick Realism.

Drawing significant controversy--and stirring treble collateral interest, the entire book is filled with sidebars, insert pages, and illustrations purporting to provide steps to at least a dozen rituals, spells, and alchemical concoctions--which in itself wouldn't be of much concern if, to the great surprise of skeptics the country-over, they didn't actually work. On blogs, Youtube, and Twitter appear with alarming alacrity reports of the startling efficaciousness of many of the incantations in the work...
