London: Scarlet Imprint, 2014. Bibliothèque Rouge edition. Paperback, 176 pages. New.
Reasonances is a collection of essays, interviews and lectures by occultural pioneer Carl Abrahamsson, spanning a thirteen-year period. These 23 pieces show the wide range and depth of Abrahamsson’s eclectic interests – from Thelema and politics; the influence of the Temple of Psychic Youth; Edward Bulwer-Lytton; Rosaleen Norton; Yukio Mishima and Ernst Jünger. Conversations with Kenneth Anger rub shoulders with an obituary for Anton La Vey, the sorcery of fiction and considerations on the relationship between art, creativity and magic.
Stimulating and subversive, Reasonances offers an enticing glimpse of the thoughts of one of contemporary occultism’s most creative individuals.
Illustrated with 8 black and white photographic portraits.
