A critically acclaimed biography of Wilfred Talbot Smith (1885-1957), the leader of Crowley's contemporary followers in the Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO), authored by Martin P.

Introduced to Crowley's works by Charles Stansfeld Jones in Canada, Smith met Crowley only once, but their twenty year correspondence povided a major link between the Beast and his followers in the United States and Canada. Smith's spiritual life centered first on the initiatic structure of the Order of the A..A.., complemented by the emerging fraternal and social schemes of the Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO). Smith followed Jones into a few all but-forgotten movements like the Universal Brotherhood and the Psychomagian Society.
