Prime Chaos presents an overview of the fastest-growing school of modern occultism — Chaos Magic. The author of Condensed Chaos presents simple, yet effective techniques for becoming proficient in practical magic, including an exhaustive breakdown of the possibilities offered by ritual magic, sorcery, invocation, possession and evocation. The resurgence of interest in magic has led to a new interest in magical groups, and Phil Hine brings a wealth of experience in groups to an exploration of the advantages — and disadvantages — of working magic with other people. Prime Chaos also explores some of the lighter — and darker — aspects of modern occultism, and presents new ideas for developing magical techniques for the 21st Century.
In addition, you have on this book a unique piece of history: cover art by William S. Burroughs, author of Naked Lunch and many other famous works.

Prime Chaos is the first genuine grimoire of the PandaemonAeon.
I found much to inspire and amuse me in these pages. Heck, I wish I'd written this book!

Phil Hine is the foremost interpreter of the chaos paradigm. Prime Chaos is a survival manual for the 21st century.
This is the real deal. I love this book because it gives a magick without the bullshit and lies that fill so many works on the occult. The ideas are useful both for the lone worker of any Path and for people wanting to run a wiccan coven or other group.
