Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An alchemical formula to rip a hole in the fabric of reality.

Disinformation?s "wicked warlock" Richard Metzger gathers an unprecedented cabal of modern occultists, magicians and forward thinkers in Book of Lies. Whereas past Disinformation volumes like You Are Being Lied To, Everything You Know is Wrong and Abuse Your Illusions focused on secrets and lies from the mainstream media, government and other establishment institutions to rethink what a political science book could look like, Book of Lies redefines occult anthologies, packaging and presenting a huge array of magical essays for a pop culture audience.

  • Nevill Drury on Australian witch, Rosaleen Norton
  • Michael Moynihan conducts a fireside chat with the Black Pope of the Church of Satan, Anton LaVey
  • Season of the Witch by Gary Lachman examines the dark side of hippie and the "Age of Aquarius"

Review:

"Disinformation's Book of Lies is a 21st century grimoire, a How To book designed to inspire the young magician-warriors of this new and turbulent century. In the apparent derangement of our times, this book is both a call to arms and an armory also. Get tooled up, get out there...and start bending reality." Grant Morrison
