Peter J. Carroll: Liber Null (1978) Psychonaut (1982) (published 1987)



Peter J. Carroll is a leading figure within the Chaos Magic movement. Along with "The New Equinox" publisher and writer Ray Sherwin, Carroll is widely considered to be the originator of Chaos Magic as an independent field of occult exploration. 

A meeting between Peter J. Carroll and Ray Sherwin in Deptford in 1976 has been claimed as the birthplace of chaos magic, and in 1978 Carroll and Sherwin founded the Illuminates of Thanateros (IOT), a chaos magic organization. Liber Null (1978) by Peter J. Carroll further developed this new, experimental perspective on magic. This book and Carroll's Psychonaut (1981) remain important sources.

Who would be a good, more modern
follow up to reading Peter Carroll?

His writings have their merit, but
his bias against 1980's psychology
is outdated and counter-productive
with what we know today.
Has anyone since Carroll done the
subject of Chaos Magick any justice?
