Format: Paperback
Finally, an advanced book of magick! So much of what we get from the publishers today are works for beginners. In Lon Milo DuQuette's Angels, Demons, and Gods of the New Millennium we are fortunate to receive a work written for those who have more than a passing knowledge of Kabbalah, sorcery, and other arts of magick. Here is a book written with the authority of experience, yet without the overbearing weight of received truth. DuQuette speaks to us as if we were guests in his home who share his love of magick. Knowing the groundwork is already covered, he shares the fruit of long thought about, and experience of, magickal practice.
DuQuette writes with a different voice from those of the greater lights of early in this century. His style has the personal qualities of Israel Regardie's but in the '90s it is just not possible to speak with such certainty. Instead DuQuette writes from experience, from successes and failures. He digests all this down to what he feels is important, even if the outcome doesn't fit the usual interpretations.
For example, DuQuette plays with both conceptions of the AA (Argenteum Astrum): the group of people who worked with Aleister Crowley and his students on the one hand, and, on the other, the body of initiates that has been guiding humanity towards enlightenment since time immemorial. DuQuette raises the logical point that if this organization has been present "since the dawn of consciousness" and has been embodied in such great souls as Lao-Tse, the Buddha, and Pythagoras, then how can access to it be limited to those with pieces of paper signed by Crowley and his heirs? DuQuette moves the AA to a more immediate plane, where any student with right aspiration can find herself in the great chain of initiates.

This book by Lon Milo DuQuette surprised me. Not because it is well written - I'd heard Lon's presentation at the Denver ATA in 1998 and had experienced the eloquence and energy he commands (whether aided by unnamed entities or not I do not know). What surprised me is that for the first time the Qabalah came alive for me. I had read parts of the major works on it before - Waite, Knight, Fortune and others - but it has always seemed a dry, over-elaborate, even disembodied, system to me. My study and practice, except for Tarot has been in Eastern systems. I am still not a Qabalist but now I am able to understand the appeal the Qabalah holds for others.
Lon explains the methods of Qabalistic scriptural exegesis - system for transforming words into other words - in a way that brings out their spiritual power. The text derived by these methods is not necessarily more profound than the exoteric one. What is important is that the process reveals a universe rich in interconnections which increase the more one seeks them.
The value of the method is the process of seeking and finding these interconnections. This was an important insight for me because it does away with the objection that the correlation's found are arbitrary. They may seem arbitrary but the divine becomes present in the act of finding these correlation's. What starts out seeming to the random if found unexpectedly to reveal the cosmic order.
Although Lon does not discuss Tarot, something like this occurs in Tarot divination. Suppose the spread includes the 4 of swords. Somehow a piece of cardboard with a peculiar picture connects to a late twentieth century person's need for respite from conflict.

I have to admit, I am a fan of Lon Milo Duquette. His 1993 THE MAGICK OF THELEMA is unquestionably the best introduction to the work of Aleister Crowley ever written. My only complaint is that he didn't write it ten years earlier. He not only filled in countless gaps in my magical education he did it with an easy-going manner that made this complex and serious subject seem more than interesting...he actually made it fun.

Now, to my absolute delight, in his new book ANGELS, DEMONS & GODS OF THE NEW MILLENNIUM, Lon Milo Duquette surpasses all his earlier efforts and unleashes his wit and insight on the most fundamental elements of modern magick and the spiritual significance of the New Age. The publisher, Samuel Weiser, calls it a "liberal arts education in Wester Hermeticism." That is not an exaggeration, However, ANGELS, DEMONS, etc., is much more. It is a magical experience in and of itself.

Is the Hebrew Qabalah the Zen of the West? What are angels and demons? Why on earth would a sane person want to deal with them? What makes the New Age the "New Age?" With disarming charm Duquette gently draws you into the introspective world of the modern magician, tickles you with hilarious observations and self-effacing confessions, then (often in the same paragraph) he slams you in the heart with breathtaking profundities.

The book is fully illustrated with charts and timelines including a magnificant full color fold out diagram of the angels of the Shem ha-mephorash, Goetic demons and their place in the zodiac and the tarot.

I have no doubts ANGELS, DEMONS & GODS OF THE NEW MILLENNIUM (like THE MAGICK OF THELEMA) will become a classic. There is nothing in the field of esoteric literature quite like it...Perhaps because there are no modern magical writers quite like Lon Milo DuQuette.
