Here’s a link to a recent interview I did with the musician Justin Robertson. We talk about the evolution of consciousness, my background in music, science, esotericism and quite a bit more.
Here’s a thoughtful review of my book on Aleister Crowley. Would that all his readers were so even-handed… In other news, I’ve just received the copy-edited manuscript of my new book The Secret Teachers of the Western World, which is due out later this year. So far the editor hasn’t pointed out too many glaring errors, but it’s early yet… My online course on “Phenomenology as a Mystical Discipline” for the CIIS is moving along, although some students are a bit taken aback by some of Colin Wilson’s remarks about sex. We’re using his book Superconsciousness – along with readings from my A Secret History of Consciousness and The Caretakers of the Cosmos – and the links between “peak experiences” and sexuality are evidently not crystal clear.

Here’s an interview I did recently with Mandy Pho for her Philosophy of Health website. We ranged over quite a few subjects and I appreciated having a chance to talk about philosophy for a change…
Here’s a link to an interview with Gnostic Warrior radio. Not surprisingly, the conversation ranged over quite a bit of material. Crowley’s in there somewhere, as are the Gnostics, and the occult – but have a listen and find out.
Here’s a link to an article on Colin Wilson that I wrote for Quest Magazine. My thanks to Richard Smoley, the editor, for posting it on line.
Here is an excellent review of my book Aleister Crowley: Magick, Rock and Roll, and the Wickedest Man in the World, if I do say so myself. It gets the essential point of the book and recognizes that I take Crowley seriously enough to raise important criticisms about him. It is encouraging to see that some readers get what you are aiming at. It makes all the trouble you put into writing worth while. And I bet Crowley would like it too!
