This work is, above all, a guide. A “how to”, created for the magical practitioner, to facilitate them being in control. Not only of themselves, but also their immediate socioeconomic environment. The author covers the techniques and tools necessary for accomplishing this. Carefully laying out the means by which each individual can assert their mastery. As the world we know is driven to the point of annihilation, by a collection of amoral psychopaths, the only way to defeat them is to beat them at their own game. Ill thoughts, Ill words, Ill deeds – A Toxick Magick Primer: Volume 1 is the first step in acquiring the necessary skills to accomplish this goal. Joshua Wetzel is a long time member of the Magical Pact of the Illuminates of Thanateros (IOT) with over 25 years of experience in results oriented occultism in general and the practice of chaos magick in particular. He is also the author of The Paradigmal Pirate.
