Time to release another chapter of Liber Malorum!! This chapter, The Wild Dance was written by good friend and fellow adventurer Indigo Niebla.

Indigo is an australian artist who explores the intersection of creative expression and technology to transform everyday reality and lived identity. She's an artist, pagan, geek, psychonaut techno-mage masquerading as a respectable, middle-class professional woman. The Wild Dance is a festival and campfire favourite for me when I'm in Storyteller mode as it manages to take the reader on an uber powerful journey into the night...

The sound of cars on the distant highway blends into the wind
sliding cold through the ragged eucalypts. The glow of the city
on the horizon a neon reminder of that which is left behind. The
drums have started.



Hollow, echoing through the forest, they beat a summons. Here,
in this place, in this time. The darkest night, turning point of the
year, the moment of darkness when the world hangs suspended
between life and death. We are called.

Time to release another chapter of Liber Malorum!! This chapter, The Tree was written by good friend and fellow adventurer Lilah Lilith. I first met Lilah at an convergence of Pagan activists in London in 2004 and have been good friends ever since. The release of The Tree coincides with Lilah's tour of Europe with another occultist Orryelle Defenestrate-Bascule (another Liber Malorum contributor, whose story we will hopefully release on to the world one day soon).

Lilah Lilith will be running a workshop on Tantric Alchemy in Brighton on July 3rd and I'll post more information about that shortly.

Hello apple lovers!

I thought I'd write a quick note about Liber Malorum's subtitle, which you may have seen is Children Of The Apple.




Where exactly does this subtitle come from?

For a start, Children Of The Apple is one, but is not the only literal translation of the Latin words, "Liber Malorum". That's right! As outlined in the prologue which I posted on my blog there are in fact several possible translations.

Liber, in Latin has at least three different and useful meanings:

  • Children Of (Noun, Pl)
  • Book Of (Noun)
  • Unimpeded (Adj.)

Malorum on the other hand also has at least three useful translations:

  • Evil (Adj.)
  • Apples (Noun, PL)
  • Apple Tree (Noun, Singular)

Now this is all well and fine, and you can easily chop and change! Next time you pick up the book, take a moment to decide if you're really reading Children Of The Apple as the subtitle suggests.

Instead of Children Of The Apple, you could decide to be reading an altogether different book. How about picking one of Unimpeded Evil, Book of the Apple Tree, Children of Evil or even Unimpeded Apples.

One of my favourite translations is The Book Of Evil, just because it sounds fun, and well, following your truth even when your truth breaks the established status quo can be seen by outsiders as an "evil" thing to do. But when you're in that spiritual place, following your core truth even against the grain of established authority there's that inner feeling of total freedom and power and love. Thelemites would say this is where they are following their True Will.

I'm not really a Latin speaker, so if some of the puns in the title slipped you by, that's okay, I just thought it would be fun at the time! It's the biting of the apple which is really important. Have you bitten one today?

Hope everything is wonderful out there for you. Feel free to read the prologue and table of contents in full.

And if you're up to it, please leave a comment :>

Hello one and all. It's time to release another chapter of Liber Malorum!!

This chapter, Pneumonia was written by myself and is one of the weaving fabrics of the overall Liber Malorum tapestry - what do I mean by that? Well if you've been following my blog at all, you'll know that each of the 72 chapters in Liber Malorum are stand-alone reads, as well each being an essential fabric of the whole work that is Liber Malorum.

The Pneumonia chapter is also the last appearance in the book of the character Helene who appears a number of times previously. Helene is a favourite amongst psychonauts, SMers and dykes, in that order |-|

I haven't been posting the chapters from Liber Malorum in numeric order, but as they become relevant in my day to day life. Well currently there are a whole number of people discussing the Mayan prophecies of 2012. Is it the end of time like some predict? Or just an ordinary year in the Gregorian calendar...

Well I don't really answer that question in Pneumonia, but I do discuss how 2012 might be useful to the spiritual and pagan and activist communities.

Happy reading!

Download Chapter 66 - Pneumonia.

From here you can also see previous chapter releases or even order your own copy :)

David Rankine, author of many fine books including Becoming Magick, Climbing the Tree Of Life and Practical Planetary Magick (co-authored with the lovely Sorita D'Este) has written a very positive review of Liber Malorum.

Here's an excerpt of it:

Bernadette (or burn many if they are mounting up faster than your ability to pay them) is the patsy, the eye of reason exposed to the horned serpent selling sex, drugs, magick and music from the garden stall. She is the straight woman providing mundane rationality as a piece of malleable plasticine for the plethora of authors to tease into bizarre and fantastic shapes. This book is a literary psychedelic with special guest appearances from the good, the bad and the ugly.

I enjoyed this book and seriously suggest you give it a try.

Read the rest of the review on the the Esoteric Book Review website.

Go on.

hugs to all from Sean

A mighty big Happy April Fools day to all you Children of the Apple out there! Time to release another chapter of Liber Malorum!! This chapter, Frewella Grove was written by good friend and fellow big-hearted trouble-maker Henry Lauer. I first met Henry at an convergence of Pagan and Discordian activists in Australia in 2003 and have been good friends ever since.

Frewella Grove will be especially interesting to those who like their magic Northern, and believe in elves...

Hello all you Children of the Apple out there!

Time for another Liber Malorum - Children Of The Apple chapter release. I've decided not to do them in sequential order, but to release them in the order that events unfold in my life. Without revealing too much of my inner world here, the next chapter I'm putting out into the world is Chapter 57 - Do You Want To Believe? - by Frater Carfax. This magnificent story has many hidden facets to it, not least of which are hidden behind the lead two characters' names.

Do What Thou Wilt Shall Be The Whole Of The Law.

Oh dear. I just had word that my first real occult teacher has passed to the other side and so I thought I'd write a few words to honour him, and my memory of my time under his tutelage.

Barry Salkilld, known as Frater C.D. was the founding member and Imperator (leader) of the Order of the Golden Phoenix, which was abbreviated into O.P.A. being the initials of the Latin name of the Order. Barry was a very headstrong man, down-to-earth yet noble to the point of being a damned annoying bastard at times.

I first came to the O.P.A. at age 21 on recommendation by a member of my family when I wanted to start investigating the unseen forces that existed in the world. I had been brought up vaguely Jewish but a strong curious mind soon had me testing and exploring other religious systems and traditions. It only took a couple of phone calls and soon I was off to the venue in Summer Hill known to me then only as The Abbey.
