Saint DuQuette does it again. In this astonishing frank account of his magickal life, Lon Milo discusses the various trials and tribulations an aspiring mage must go through to achieve adepthood.
Some bits are fascinating - the Enochian Experiments for example and Lon Milo's approach strips a lot of the superstition and needless fear which has been installed on the system by certain schools and writers. Sure, like any working magical system it can be dangerous but it certainly is not loaded to zap any magician willing to sensibly experiment and learn. I am sure (well fairly sure) that there are no Enochian demons hanging over me waiting until I die to drag my screaming soul down into the infernal abyss for all eternity.
The account of the Goetic summoning is hillarious and gripping, Lon raising a demon in his infant sons bedroom teaches us many things not least of which is be sure of your banishings. Again showing that all systems have a validity and need to be treated with respect
Simply the best magical autobiography since Aleister Crowleys Confessions - and much more truthful.
