Out now – CONJURING DEMONS FOR PLEASURE AND PROFIT: An Abramelin Memoir, by Alex Sumner

Announcing the new book by Alex Sumner:

Conjuring Demons for Pleasure and Profit: An Abramelin Memoir is published by Thoth Publications and is available worldwide from Amazon and all good bookstores. To quote from the back cover:

“DURING THE YEAR 2020, the COVID-19 Pandemic affected people across the world in a number of different ways … I personally chose to use the time to carry out a lengthy Magical Ritual to invoke an Angel and subsequently summon and bind all the Demons of Hell.”

In 1996 as a young man, Alex Sumner brought a copy of Mathers’ The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage, made most famous by the occultist Aleister Crowley. Alex left it lying on his bookshelf for almost a quarter of a century … until the pandemic lockdown caused him to work from home on full-pay – and enabled him to complete the Abramelin Operation.

IN THIS BOOK YOU WILL DISCOVER:
• The magical diary of a magician who performed the Abramelin Operation for six months, right through to its exciting end.
• What the Operation is, how it is performed and what to expect from “Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel.”
• Why most books about Abramelin are full of mistakes, and how you can work out the truth for yourself.
• Worked examples of how to make use of the Word Squares to attain fantastic magical effects.
And …
• Why the Abramelin Operation is actually easier than many people seem to think.

Alex Sumner is a novelist and writer on the occult. In 2009 he wrote his first novel The Magus and has gone on to write six novels in total, several short-stories, and numerous non-fiction articles. This is his first full length, non-fiction book. Alex lives with his fiancée in Essex, England.

Current work: update

During the year 2020, the COVID-19 Pandemic affected people across the world in a number of different ways … I personally chose to use the time to carry out a lengthy Magical Ritual to invoke an Angel and subsequently summon and bind all the Demons of Hell.



The first draft of my next book is now completed. Now comes the inevitable proof-reading, so I expect it to be ready some time in 2022, or when I decide by electional astrology when is the best time to launch it.

I have titled it “Conjuring Demons for Pleasure and Profit: an Abramelin Memoir,” and details my adventures while undertaking the Abramelin Operation in 2020. I kept a diary throughout my operation, and then spent a year afterwards editing and annotating it. The result is by far the longest book I have yet written, 175K words or 561 pages, so it will be one chunky paperback.

It is hence the latest addition to a genre – Abramelin Memoirs – comprising just three other books of which I know: The Sacred Magician by William Bloom, After the Angel by Marcus Katz, and The Abramelin Diaries: The Nice Man Cometh by Ramsey Dukes. I shall post more news as it arises.

Incidentally, literary agents and publishers who fancy taking it on: please message me via the Contact page on this very website: thanks.
