Review by Lee Prosser - email@example.com
This wonderful, compact autobiography continues to remain in print, and is finally finding a wider readership in the paranormal and supernatural community. It is worthy of discovery and certainly deserves a reading! It is the autobiography of DuQuette and ranks with another classic autobiography, The Confessions of Aleister Crowley.
DeQuette is a member of Ordo Templi Orientis and one of its most important representatives. He is a prolific author. Among his numerous writings are Tarot of Ceremonial Magick, and he is a Certified Grand Master of the American Tarot Association.
To follow the study of the paranormal, to make contact with spirits, to understanding the true meaning of what magick is and can accomplish... these are among the interesting items covered by DuQuette. There are 27 chapters, and each one makes for enjoyable reading.
Among the topics covered are "I Am Born," "I Descend into Hell," "Altar Boy," "California Dreamin'," "Samadhi on Waldo Road," "Wizard of Takilma," "Rock-n-Roll Rosicrucian," "My Father's ghost," "Nedura and the Processionof Elves," "My Maick Wand," "Evocation of Orobas," "Israel Regardie and the Exorcism of Garkon," "Enochian Spirits -- First Worshipper, Friendly Visit," "Andromalius," "Attack of Aunt Galdys' Ghost," and "How to End an Autobiography Without Dying." The illustrations will catch the reader's attention, and two of special interest are the "Goetic Spirit Orobas" and "Sigil of Goetic Spirit Andromalius."
You are in for a reading delight with DuQuette's fine, well-written autobiography. There is much to learn and he shares his knowledge in an oftentimes humorous, user-friendly approach that adds to the charm of this book. For something unusual, give Lon Milo DuQuette's book a look. You won't be disappointed in what you discover in the pages of this book! The book abounds with insights and helpful suggestions.
Highly recommended. My Life with the Spirits would make a fine gift for a friend, for personal home reference, and a nice book to have placed in your local public library. The book is worth your time to read.
