Lionel Snell is among the founding names in chaos magic – though better known as Ramsey Dukes. In 1970 Gerald Yorke (keeper of the Crowley archive) introduced me to the writings of Austin Osman Spare and I wrote “Spare Parts” – an introductory article about his system of magic – that was published in Agape 4 in 1973 together with a facsimile of my copy of “The Anathema of Zos”. This, together with my first published books “SSOTBME – an essay on magic” and “Thundersqueak” played a seminal role in the nascent Chaos current. I am also known for my contribution to cyber magic, having pioneered the “information universe” concept twenty years before The Matrix. While many magical writers begin by taking you to another world, a world of wonder, I begin our magic quest right here in everyday reality – where it is most needed.
