1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr. B. P. Van-asten on 13 May 2012
Format: Paperback
This collection of essays concerning ethical and philosophical problems within humanity are written in a delightfully curious and sublime manner, sprinkled with satirical and esoteric wisdom. Here you will find in this tremendously lucid little book: `The Wake World', `Ali Sloper, or the Forty Liars' (a drama); `Thien Tao, or the Synagogue of Satan' ( a political essay) and `The Stone of the Philosophers which is hidden in Abiegnus the Rosicrucian Mountain of Initiation'.
These eloquent and remarkable `essays in light' are an attempt to provide solutions for society and methods for the emancipation from personal obsessions and restrictions, written in Crowley's humorous and inimitable style. Consider them absurd or consider them astounding, the erudition and perception of the author is unmistakable!

My Favorite Crowley Book 22 July 2000
By Sarah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Even if we decide to ignore the fact that this is one of Crowley's most entertaining books, Konx Om Pax (Light in Extention) truly helps the "Children of Light" to understand the difficulty of the magickal path - while clearly illustrating its immeasurable worth. I recommend this book to anyone who has even the slightest interest in Magick or Crowley.

Essays in light (heartedness) 21 Jun 2008
By foolish bibliophile - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It's good to get in touch with Crowley's sense of humor. This nice red little book contains 4 very different symbolically charged stories. It doesn't take itself too seriously and pokes fun at a lot of things in a wry, cynical way that is not disillusioned. It's a quick read and I'll read it again.

Disvover What was taught at Eleusis 2 Dec 1999
By rareoopdvds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Possibly one of Crowley's most influential works, this short book of four short stories is clearly a master in prose, poetry, language and the elusive. 'Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law' is not the subject here, but rather a symbolic IT is also a tell-tale of the fobidden knowledge for those that know and those that dont know. As was written in parenthesis; "Explanatory notes in Latin and Hebrew for the Wise and Prudent."

Fabulous 24 Oct 2000
By Chris Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is Crowley at his cryptic best! A collection of Qabalistic fairy tales, poems and stories. An essential work for the serious student of Thelema, Qabala and Magick!

Insightful yet obscure 23 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Though I enjoyed this book, I found the matter awfully obscure--so I would warn the hapless reader that the subject matter is thickly wrapped in symbol. A valuable book for any serious student.
