An interesting study which seems to be largely based on chaos magick and other related techniques, this presumably being a photocopy of the self published original, although I cannot find any further information to substantiate whether the book was ever formally issued in some form or not, and do not discount the possibility that this copy is a ‘home production’ issued by the author.
