S.S.O.T.B.M.E. - Revised: An essay on magic
Edited & Revised by Ramsey Dukes, 148pp, p/bk. Available from Web-orama
Quite simply the best introduction to magic I've ever read.
Seriously, this is a must-read book. Rightly hailed as one of the ur-texts of Chaos Magic, S.S.O.T.B.M.E. does much to banish the bullshit around so many explanations of 'magic'.
There's much food for thought here, whether you're just starting in on magic or consider yourself an old hand. If you've got friends,lovers, bosses, etc. wondering what all this weird stuff is about and you want to steer them towards an intelligent intro to magic - look no further than S.S.O.T.B.M.E..
