by Shiva, Frater
Publisher: Teitan Press, Inc.
Binding: Hardcover with dust jacket
Book ID: 9780933429093, 0933429096
The Teitan Press, 2007. First Edition.
Hardcover. 8vo. 200 pages. Mustard-color cloth with
black titling to spine, printed on library-quality paper, with an 8 page
black and white photographic insert and an index. Edition Limited to 418
copies. Color dust jacket design by Gavin O'Keefe. Solar Lodge is arguably
one of the most interesting and controversial of the many occult groups that
sprung up in 1960s America. It was founded by a student of one of the
original initiates of Agape Lodge of the O.T.O. and taught a system of
magick closely based on that of Aleister Crowley. The author, Frater Shiva,
joined Solar Lodge at its inception and rose to a senior position in its
ranks before finally leaving at the time of its implosion in 1972. 'Inside
Solar Lodge - Outside the Law' is his reminiscence of life within that
group: who they were, how they came together, and what they did and why. As
such it gives a rare glimpse into the lives, aspirations and practices of
this group of twentieth century magicians, viewed not through the eyes of an
historian or sociologist, but from one who was there and a part of it. It
also offers a detailed 'insider' account of the theft of the library of
O.T.O. leader Karl Germer, the 'boy in the box' incident, and the alleged
connection between the Solar Lodge and the Manson group: all events that
have become part of the folklore of American occultism.
