Product description


"After reading Wormwood Star, I was left very impressed with Spencer Kansa’s treatment of Cameron. To have gone to all the effort he did to provide the public with a compassionate yet balanced, and not gushingly fannish portrayal of such a complicated figure. He walked the fine lineof keeping his head out of la-la land and grounded in facts, providing the necessary perspective for the reader, making Cameron’s legendary status undeniable and understandable. This story really did need to be told once and for all, so hats off to him for doing it." Zeena Schreck, co-author of Demons of the Flesh: The Complete Guide to Left Hand Path Sex Magic.

"Wormwood Star is a fascinating and very, very well-researched look into Cameron’s perplexingly strange life. Crisscrossing the country and tracking down all of the various characters the author spoke to must have been quite a chore and, as a reader and long-time admirer of Cameron’s work, I’m grateful for the attention Spencer Kansa paid to detail." Richard Metzger, Dangerous Minds.com

"Wormwood Star describes a magickal woman and artist, not as a tragedy as is all too tritely easy to do to those who have been allotted the role ofa magickal partner, but as a true Babalon. A woman and creative being in her own right who, rather than change to the dictates of oppressivesociety, became a defining part of a changing one. Fabulous!" Charlotte Rodgers, author of The Bloody Sacrifice.

"Wormwood Star is a superb effort on every level, incorporating impeccable research and very well observed view points with a flair for explaining abstruse concepts and ideas in a concise and succinct way. More to the point, it brought Cameron alive for me. This very well written, entertaining and exciting work deserves to be widely regarded as one of the best books of 2011!" Stephen Sennitt, author of The Infernal Texts: Nox and Liber Koth.

"Spencer Kansa brings to life the countless cabals and social occasions which Cameron enjoyed to the hilt. He might as well have been there when it all happened too, so authoritative is his knowledge and feel for the sometimes penniless world of the practicing magician."Joe Ambrose, Outside Left.com

"A groundbreaking biography....that signals a big step towards Cameron’slong overdue recognition." Marc Olmsted, The Beat Review.

"Wormwood Star is a little gem. I respect the author for stepping way beyond the mainstream to go in search of Cameron." Nina Antonia, author of Johnny Thunders - In Cold Blood.

"Wormwood Star is a pulsating account of a vibrant individual. Someone who lived her life in a magickal way and whose legendary position in occult annals has been skillfully captured and shared in this well-researched bio."
