    I just picked this up after the Brothers on the WCY podcast had their review of it. I am looking forward to starting it soon.

    I have it. The book is mildly interesting. It is divided in four parts / essays. The first is about OTO and FM. Then there are parts about solar and astrological symbolism in FM; classical mythology in FM and Mithraism and FM. The first is the most original. The book does not present much new, but the author has a few interesting thoughts here and there. The book is about 120 pages.

    He mentioned how GD, OTO etc. came directly from Rosicrucianism and Masonry therefore there is certainly a connection between them all. That is not, however, to imply the other way around.

    Ah yes the OTO. I believe Aliester Crowley was a member of both FM and OTO. This was before he created Thelma by furthering his studies of Hermeticism.

    He was a "mason" but he joined a lodge that was considered irregular. He was a member of the OTO but not the founder as most assume. Keller was the founder, Crowley was the "ruiner" (If that's even a word) in my opinion.

    Edit: Kellner...damn autocorrect

    He was a member of a few more orders prior to thelema and was involved with a lot of things.
    Are they referincing the pre-crowley O.T.O?

    I'm not a fan of Crowley myself.
