What is chaos magic?
Nearly forty years after its beginnings, Pagans and magicians are still asking the question, or finding conflicting information online.
Jaq D Hawkins was the first chaos magician to write of the history and elements of chaos magic for a widespread audience. Now, in this new volume, that history is expanded and the concepts, specialist terms and culture associated with chaos magic are clarified for a new generation of magicians.
Basic concepts and methods, associations with Discordianism and the teachings of magicians of the past, advice on how to survive the natural chaos which plagues those who choose the magical path ... or more precisely are chosen by it, are interspersed with perspective of the perversities of magic and the convoluted landscape of life which the magical path leads us through.
With some practical advice and basic spells designed to work within the very world of chaos wherein magic finds its direction, this book is a simple, yet unequalled sourcebook for dealing with the unpredictability of magic in a multiverse of natural chaos.

NOTE: Beware any unknown titles that purport to be by Austin Osman Spare. At least one dodgy publisher regularly publishes stuff ABOUT Spare without properly crediting the author (himself) to make books of his own writing appear to be new material from AOS.
