The essential work on the practice of chaos magic, one of the fastest growing areas of Western occultism.

“The most original and probably the most important writer on Magick since Aleister Crowley."—Robert Anton Wilson, author of the Prometheus Rising

“Peter Carroll has successfully broken down many of the patterns that so many magicians cling to. Liber Null and Psychonaut—written not only for students of chaos magic, but to separate the necessary from what may be the unnecessary formula of magick—covers much new territory. Carroll has taken methods from Austin Osman Spare, shamanism, paganism, and Chaos science and synthesized them into a new system of practice.”—The Portal
The practice of chaos magic is clearly outlined here by Peter Carroll. His approach combines methods from shamanism, paganism, and chaos science. The book includes a selection of extremely powerful rituals and exercises for committed occultists with instructions that lead the reader through new concepts and practices.

This new Weiser Classics edition includes a new foreword by Ronald Hutton, author of The Triumph of the Moon.

Peter J. Carroll began his career in Magic at London University where the Chemistry proved so tedious that he settled on a pass degree in that and an unauthorized first in Magic, with Liber Null & Psychonaut emerging as his postgraduate thesis over the next several years whilst teaching high school science. He is past Grandmaster of the Magical Pact of the Illuminates of Thanateros, Chancellor of Arcanorium College, Acting Marshall of the Knights of Chaos, and a Bard of Dobunni Grove. He maintains a personal website at
