Mezlim - which ran to 25 issues published between 1990 - 1996, was an important journal of magical studies, that although not exclusively Thelemic, had a strong Crowleyan slant for much of its life. It had its origins in a small mimeographed journal called Mezla, which was a house journal for Kenneth Grant's Typhonian O.T.O. It ran for some 13 issues before petering out, only to be revived briefly twice: Vol. III, No. I (1985), & Vol. V, No. I (1989). By this time Kenneth Deigh had become the prime mover, and Managing Editor / Publisher of the journal and with the next issue he changed its title to Mezlim, the started a new series, with Vol. I, Issue 1, appearing early in 1990. This set comprises a complete set of the 25 issues of Mezlim, plus Vol. V, No. I of Mezla, which although differently titled, was under the editorship of Deigh, and in real terms began the cycle of Mezlim. The content was too rich and varied to do justice in a short listing like this, but some of the articles in the issues include: "Baphomet and Son" by R. A. Gilbert, "A Sex Magickian's Guide to Quartz Crystals" by Bill Siebert," "Chaos in Magical Development" by Peter J. Carroll, "The Shadow Tarot" by Linda Falorio, "Interview with Patrick Zalewski" by Laura Jennings Clarke, "Self-Initiation" by Richard Kaczynski, "True Initation" by Chic Cicero and Sandra Tabatha Cicero, "Magicians, Priests and the New Aeon" by Richard Kaczynski, "Get the Point" by Chic Cicero, "Pow-Wow, Psalms, and German Magical Folklore" by Mark Stavish, "Magick and Scientific Pyschology" by David G. Shoemaker, "The Magical Lodge" by John Michael Greer, "The Cult of the Divine Artist" by Andrew D. Chumbley, "Daemons are our Friends" by Lon Milo DuQuette, numerous articles by Donald Michael Kraig and many, many others.

The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...
