This early work of poetry, by Aleister Crowley, was originally published in 1898. Born in Royal Leamington Spa, England in 1875, Crowley was raised by Christian fundamentalist parents. He attended Trinity College at Cambridge University, but left before graduating. After leaving the college, he devoted his time to studying the occult, and travelled extensively throughout the world in persuit of its secret knowledge. He went on to become a prolific writer, producing essays, prose and poetry on a wide range of subjects. To this day he remains a highly influential figure, both in occult circles and popular culture. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions.
Volume 1 of the Whitler, “I am the Whistler and I know many things, for I walk by night.” Haunting stories of fate, dramas of crime, deception, and manipulation building to a sudden and shocking denouement...and through it all, the sardonic, mocking laughter of The Whistler! One of radio’s most memorable thriller anthologies, the Whistler’s stories revolve around ordinary people, pushed by the pressures of daily life into taking drastic action. Or perhaps a sudden circumstance, an unexpected twist of life’s path, suddenly placed these protagonists on a road leading inexorably to their own destruction. Greed, lust, and perfidy of every kind figure in the plots—and when fate inevitably catches up with these unfortunate, driven souls, The Whistler is always ready, at the end, to see that the knife is properly twisted.
This book is for everyone. Everyone has had ups and downs. We all have had laughs and cries. We’ve had our good days and bad days. This book is to let people know that you can get back up, even when you fall. Even if you feel this is the worst thing you have ever done. I have been there and done that. Yeshua loves us even through our mess.
Westminster Abbey has seen much during its long, rich history. The coronations of Kings and Queens, the burials of Prime ministers. However it is also a church that remembers the men and women of the arts. Dedicated writers and poets who spoke so eloquently that the Nation wished to bid farewell on a stage grand enough to match their talents. Their talents and works are worth remembering and here, in this volume, their wise words speak too and for us all.
This is a Century for the history books. The Chinese curse of living in interesting times could not be more suited.
A small island continued its expansion across the globe bringing both good and evil in its march. Empires clashed. Revolution shook many. The Industrial Age was upon us.
Poets spoke up against slavery bringing social and political pressure upon an abominable horror. It was also the Age of the Romantics; Shelley, Keats, Byron lyrically rapture. Tennyson, Arnold, Browning rode a century of sweeping change of dynamism and great verse.
