Fantastic Mage the Ascension Sourcebook

This book sounded like source material for a role playing game or maybe a Dresden Files spin off the entire time I was listening to it. Imagine my surprise when I found out that a portion of this book was lifted directly from the pages of Tradition Book: Hollow Ones, a role playing game source book for Mage the Ascension.

Because of this, I cannot recommend it in good faith as an Occult text of any kind.

If you're looking for a companion piece for Mage, then it's pretty solid.

Book should be called "Blood Magick"

This book has an interesting introduction to Chaos Magick, and explains the principles and basics of this path.

However, the logic and sequence of chapters in the book goes something like: "Chaos magick can use many different pathways to achieve results. One of these pathways (after listing some others too) is blood magick. I (as the author) like blood magick" Therefore the rest of the book will be a grimoire of blood magick spells that require spilling blood."

If you're not into blood magick, this book is not for you and I would much rather suggest books on this subject by Phil Hine or Peter Carroll.

Title and Description is Misleading!

This book is neither informative or about Chaos magic! The description of this book is way off. It was written so poorly with such pompous attitude, it might as well be a prop

unorganized mess

I got suckered in by the sample section, but it turns out that was the only interesting part of the book. even though there are less than a handful of interesting ideas sprinkled into the book, its still hard to listen through the unorganized/numerous tiny chapters.

Fascinating and thought provoking 🤔

This book covers a multitude of things like energy work, remote viewing, dreams, shape shifting, doppelgangers, and magical practices in religion. The chapter on energetic hot spots was very interesting to me. For a lover of all things paranormal this book is packed full of information. I didn't care much for the blood magic section. But even still I liked the rest of the book enough to revisit it in my library in the future. I was given this free review copy audio at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A Great Listen

Chaos Magic was a super interesting listen. This is the real deal. There was something fascinating about each chapter. This book explains the uses and techniques of chaos magic and how to practice it if you don't know. I think much is intent and will. I enjoyed listening to it. I liked Seth Cardorra's writing and I thought Persephone Rose's performance was excellent. An overall WOW audiobook!

A great overview of chaos magick.

This is a really nice, quick overview of chaos magick; it's origins, specializations, and the potential rewards and dangers. It also includes personal anecdotes and example spells from the author and his associates. I recommend this book.

The narrator was a little too fast for me, I had to slow the speed down a tiny bit to be able to better absorb the content.

Is any of it original material?

If you've ever played the tabletop roleplay game Mage: the Ascension, there is no reason to buy this book. The author commits constant intellectual plagiarism from the game throughout in terminology and concepts (as well as from the other White Wolf games here and there).

As an occult enthusiast, I find it vile that this author has simply re-packaged the game to sell to occult enthusiasts for profit.

As a goth for whom the culture isn't merely a phase, I'm revolted by the author's notion of "goth magic" which is little more than a poor re-writing of the Hollow Ones tradition from the game. Two of the spells given in this "book" (Bum a Dollar from the Universe, and Coffee) are taken straight from the game book. There is nothing whatsoever making anything of what he discusses "goth." It's plain to see that being goth was nothing but a phase to the author - a phase he's willing to try to cash in on.

And as an Eagle Scout myself, I'm disappointed that someone else who has achieved that rank would so brazenly trick others for profit.

Chaos magic allows for the use of pop culture notions and images within a magickal context. And it's laudable that White Wolf used real magical ideas to create their game. But laying claim to concepts from a roleplay game that were distributed 16 years before his "Chaos Magick" book, without giving credit to the game when it's due, that's just shameful. Anyone who chooses to include the game in their magickal practice should be aware of where the information is coming from.
