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. 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.
"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"
