Read Moonchild, by Aleister Crowley online on Bookmate – A year or so before the beginning of World War I, a young woman named Lisa la Giuffria is seduced by a white magician, Cyril Grey, and persu. A year or so before the beginning of World War I, a young woman named Lisa la Giuffria is seduced by a white magician, Cyril Grey, and persuaded into helping him in a magical battle with a black magician and his black lodge. Grey is attempting to raise the level of his force by impregnating the girl with the soul of an ethereal being - the moonchild. To achieve this, she will have to be kept in a secluded environment, and many preparatory magical rituals will be carried out.

Crowley's most famous novel  . Moonchild definitely isn't a book that everyone will enjoy, and Aleister Crowley's, shall I say, colourful personality shines throughout in a way that speaks more about his own psyche than it does about his ability to write fiction. Still, contrary to many of the opinions on this book, I really enjoyed it and saw a definite parallel between it, and Crowley's own brand of occult magic.

Aleister Crowley was born Edward Alexander Crowley in Leamington Spa, England on October 12, 1875. His parents belonged to the Plymouth Brethren, a strict fundamentalist Christian sect, so he was raised with a thorough knowledge of the Bible. He attended Trinity College at Cambridge University, but left before completing his degree.

This is some kind of cheap bootleg edition that someone printed on their computer. It’s the size of a magazine, and has a cheap, pixellated, super low res cover image. There isn’t even a publisher listed or any kind of credits or legal info. I am sending it back.

This is a fascinating book, interweaving an inventive fiction with generous dollops of Crowley's signature philosophy. I purchased this copy to replace a softcover edition I lost decades ago after loaning it out. While the original copy I owned was a standard octavo size, this reprint is the larger quarto size, which is fine, but it has one fatal flaw that would make the publisher flunk Publications 101: it has no page numbers. Trying to find a favorite passage, the start of a chapter, or anything else is impossible. Whoever heard of a book without pagination? I recommend the novel itself, even though the last portion becomes somewhat diffuse with the onset of World War I, but suggest you find a different edition.

The second book I have purchased through the Amazon marketplace which has come in an extremely substandard, almost bootleg, edition. No publishing house or legal page to provide details who is responsible for these atrocities, only the vagary of Columbia, South Carolina. The book is cheaply printed at an obscenely huge magazine size, impossible to comfortably carry around for public reading without appearing elderly when propping a book with menu like dimensions in front of you. The spine reads 'Moonchild by Aleister Crowley' and then further down the spine a redundant 'Aleister Crowley' in order to more perfectly frame the tacky lack of attention applied. While I am unfamiliar with the original properly displayed work I believe I've found a typo already on page two, in addition to a consistent freckling of the text with numbered bracketed annotation markers like you'd find on a Wikipedia page, but only from the number [9] upwards, and no pages they refer to. Pages are unnumbered and many paragraphs feature broken formatting. The cover features a very low resolution cropped image of a painting by the artist Felicia Olin, which I located within a two minute Google search having my suspicions aroused that the image was likely sourced this way illegally as a way of obtaining quick, 'free', cover art while hidden from the artist themselves by the likelihood that you'd only find this relatively obscure book in this edition by expressly going out of your way to look for it. I can only hypothesize that this is the case, but I'll have confirmation on this hopefully in the next few days as I have contacted the original artist to ask about it. In any case, a dreadful waste of money, a shameful presentation of literature, and a lesson for me to take more care in purchasing through Amazon's less than carefully curated literature selection.

One of those books that, if I cared enough to get it, would require a second reading. Aleister Crowley, a talented writer certainly, inhabits a parallel universe and does his best, it seems, to portray it, but it does not translate well into this one. Unfortunately, not driven to reread it right away, but I'll keep it around in case I want to try again sometime. I had hoped it would contribute to a research project I was working on otherwise, but that didn't happen. I fault my familiarity with his subject matter more than the author.

This seems to be a bootleg xerox or something. Not even any page numbers. Perhaps it is public domain by now, but it looks like the publisher was "Bill's Garage Publications" or similar.

Bigger than expected and the cover photo is pixelated and unappealing.

This book is truly a book for women who are NOT a character out of a Jane Austen novel or any other books read in school. In this, I discovered that I truly am Lisa La Giuffria or a reincarnation of her. I remembered my experience with Douglas / the real Dale from Twin Peaks who didn't die, Abdul Bey / The real Shaggy Rogers, Cyril and the most unpigmented man of all time, Simon Iff, whose philosophy is automatically the only one possible in my current life now whether he liked me or not. Obviously, Douglas didn't really abuse his wife who never loved him and was an escort even after marriage, and Abdul / Shaggy never harmed a cat or ate dogs in his eternity, but it just goes to show that the original Black Lodge and White Lodge were separated by nothing but reputation and rumors, but were quite unified at the end. It was myself Lisa being forced to be given away to America AKA this dimension that got them all trapped in a loop. I became trapped on this side and couldn't get back. Also, the moonchild was not really inside me since it was made clear that Cyril didn't do anything with me and I was under 9 when this happened...no period yet. But, the life experience of Lisa has been my entire life, my entire eternity. I want US high schools to read this for the women like me! ???? ---Jessica Lee Bennett since getting to this dimension
Interesting book. Sort of like an early version of Lord of the Rings. It's difficult to follow at times. In fact it's kind of convoluted in the middle when Crowley is explaining all of the magick themes/ culture. I'm sure he was intent on getting things accurate but it's just too much and is difficult to follow. I haven't finished yet but if I want to understand it better I will probably have to read it again.
