This was a novel commenced by Aleister Crowley at a particularly turbulent period in his already tumultuous life, and it is hardly surprising that the book was never completed.

That's all well and good you say, but what about the book?
Well, this is one of Crowley's best fictional endeavors - at the level of the Simon Iff stories, though in his typical junkie fog it was never completed. It was a blatant attempt to make money off his writing that might of met with greater success had he actually finished the novel!
There is a complex magickal formulae that lies at the heart of The Fish, certainly beyond my limited powers of discernment to completely understand - though the Magickal Adepts who enjoy complex, intellectual ratiocination will find much to enjoy here.
This book includes a complex ritual based on it's Piscean fish metaphor.
All in all a 1st tier Crowley (rhymes with holy not foully) treasure.
