KING OF THE WITCHES

Alex Saunders, the most powerful white witch in Europe, lays bare the true rites and ceremonies of his craft, recounts his uncanny powers of healing and tells how he bargained for his soul with the devil.

“A range of clairvoyant and magical phenomena, exceptional even by the standards of Crowleyan achievement.” – The Times Literary Supplement
