June Johns – King Of The Witches

Posted by demonik on May 29, 2009

Many harrumph at the lurid and sensational cover photograph gracing June Johns’ Black Magic Today. It’s only when taken in its proper context – i.e., against the cover of Ms. Johns’ earlier investigation of white magic – that you can begin to appreciate New English Library’s commendable restraint.

June Johns – King Of The Witches (Pan, 1969)


A. master of the occult reveals the forbidden secrets of sorcery, witchcraft and black magic


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.

Worldly success bought a string of mistresses, bizarre parties and satanic sexual rites.

Personal tragedy led Saunders to renounce the haunted world of black witchcraft and begin his constant battle with the forces of evil ….

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

June Johns – Black Magic Today

Posted by glampunk on August 25, 2007

June Johns – Black Magic Today (Nel, 1971)


…. Altars defiled …. Animals mutilated and slaughtered … These are just the tip of an iceberg of incidents are beginning to appear with increasing regularity in the newspaper headlines. What sort of people practice Black Magic and how great a threat is it?

Journalist June Johns has done her research well and her revelations will shock and, possibly, frighten you. She tells of the cruelties and sexual perversions used in the practice of magic and the way drugs and blackmail have debased its participants. What really happens “after the Ball is over” at leading country houses? And, indeed, the simplest question of all – what exactly is Black Magic?

In my copy somebody’s written: Comment. Of interest but little value. They don’t know what they’re talking about! This is like the true successor to Devil Worship In Britain !

Also, note the frankly, shameful cover. It’s the type of outrage I warned you about in the Warning so I hope you bothered to read it!
