2017 was a pretty good year for me. I got a much better job, became a dad and went back to university (again). These changes, while mostly enjoyable, meant that I didn’t get to review or read as many books as I have in the last few years. However, I feel that the quality of this year’s posts has been of a decent standard. Here’s the best of 2017.
10. Liber Falxifer
A heavy metal grimoire of dark black magic.
9. Halloween and Satanism
Anti-Semitic Christian bullshit propaganda for assholes.
8. Tarry Thou Till I Come
Including it here because, as far as I know, this is the only review of this book online. The tale of the Wandering Jew.
Some bullshit about Donald Trump. A very cool book.
6. Holy Blood, Holy Grail
Jesus had a kid, and Hitler was a descendant of Dracula.
5. Aleister Crowey’s Law and Lies
Getting to grip’s with Aleister Crowley’s bullshit.
4. The Books of Faust
This one took a lot of work.
3. The Red Books of Appin
2. The Aleister Crowley Scrapbook
An interview with a Crowley expert.
1. The Sex Magicians
My contribution to the conspiracy theories about the conspiracy theorist.
Well, there you go: Nocturnal Revelries’ best of 2017. (Just to remind you, as with last year, the links in this post are to the best posts of the year, not the best books that I read.) This blog has been going for nearly 3 years now, and I’ve reviewed about 170 books so far. I recently added an index page to the site in case anybody is looking to see if I’ve looked at a specific book or author.
Thanks for all of the support and interest. Remember, this blog has twitter and facebook pages to help keep you up to date with my ramblings. I’ve a few posts planned for the near future, but who knows what’s going to end up featured here in 2018. I’m going home for Christmas for the first time in years too, so I doubt I’ll post again until January. As always, you can email me with recommendations, questions, comments or threats. If you currently work in retail, know that my heart bleeds for you. For everyone else, enjoy the time off work, and don’t forget to go to mass on the 25th.
