Being a dynamic social laboratory Ordo Templi Orientis has produced many creative publications. Most of these are currently out of print and dear as poison!

In 2020 e.v., OTO Australia quietly launched a publishing imprint “In Perpetuity Publishing” to ensure continuity of publications for future generations. New printing technologies allow inexpensive reprints of our previous projects, making them accessible and affordable to scholars and the simply curious for all time to come.

Logos Mantram Magic

Helios Books / 2005

Dr. Arnoldo Krumm-Heller (1876-1949) was a seminal figure in early twentieth century western esotercism. A Rosicrucian mystic, occultist and healer, Krumm-Heller was a student of Theodor Reuss, ‘Papus’, and Aleister Crowley, amongst others, and worked tirelessly throughout Central and South America opening Rosicrucian lodges of the organization he founded, the Fraternitas Rosicruciana Antiqua (F.R.A.). Logos Mantram Magic, first published in Spanish in 1930, records Krumm-Heller’s ‘logos’ teachings on mantra, vibration, astral travel and communication with celestial beings. This is the first English translation.

This edition was prepared in Sydney, Australia, by Dr Kumm-Heller’s son, Parsival Krumm-Heller and Stephen J. King, in association with Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.) Australia.

Legend of Aleister Crowley

Helios Books and Ordo Templi Orientis (Australia) / 2007 / ISBN 0975773399

Originally published by the Mandrake Press in 1930, this is the first modern edition authorized by the Stephensen estate and makes substantial use of surviving Stephensen papers from the period.

Stephensen would describe The Legend of Aleister Crowley as both a “short literary biography” and “a study of the documentary evidence relating to a campaign of personal vilification unparalleled in literary history.”

This new edition includes the first publication of the opening “Epistle” that was suppressed from the first edition as being too risky. It comes with a comprehensive introductory narrative by Stephen J. King, a senior member of the Australian O.T.O., which provides the background to The Legend, and examines the press campaigns against Crowley, the history of the Mandrake Press, the Stephensen/Crowley collaboration, and Stephensen’s ongoing association with Crowley’s colleagues Karl Germer, Gerald Yorke and Israel Regardie after Crowley’s death.

Also included is a collection of Aleister Crowley’s autobiographical newspaper articles, 1933-35.

This new edition makes available an important if often overlooked book—the only biography written during Crowley’s life that addressed his character and the press campaigns against him.
