Karl Germer: Selected Letters 1928-1962 (Revised, with Index)
Edited by David Shoemaker, Andrew Ferrell, and Stefan Voss
Selected Letters 1928-1962 includes letters exchanged between Karl Germer and such Thelemic luminaries as Jane Wolfe, Phyllis Seckler, Jack Parsons, Wilfred Talbot Smith, and others. The discussions range from the mundane to the mystical, including the politics and intrigues surrounding Agape Lodge of O.T.O., the publishing of various works of Aleister Crowley, the philosophy of Thelema, and the administration of A.’.A.’.. Scholars, historians, and students of Thelema alike should find much of interest in this collection as it begins to fill a significant gap within the history of Thelema. Published by the Temple of the Silver Star (2016). 408 pages.

With Commentary by Aleister Crowley
Compiled and Introduced by David Shoemaker
This is a 206 page, 8 1/2 by 11 in. perfect-bound paperback, containing the majority of the surviving diaries Wolfe kept while training with Crowley at Cefalu, presented in quality grayscale facsimile format. Crowley’s handwritten comments run throughout, giving fascinating insights into his training methods, and into life at the Abbey of Thelema. Most of this material has never before been published. You can preview and purchase the book here: Jane Wolfe Cefalu Diaries.
In the early 1980s, Seckler sat down in her backyard garden with a simple tape recorder, classical music playing in the background, and recorded herself reciting Chapter 1 of The Book of the Law. This is not a professional recording, but a simple document of one Adept’s love and passion for Thelema and its central Holy Book. We, her students and successors, offer it now as a testament to Soror Meral’s work. We hope that you will enjoy the chance to hear her voice as we did during her life, and that the words of the Book will help bring you to the fulfillment of your own True Will.
