Book Review: The Fire From Withen, Nemo on Satanism, Vol.1 by Nemo
I have been thoroughly delighted to obtain this sterling collection of Magister Nemo’s essays from the Black Flame dating back to a period long before my involvement with the Alien Elite. It is a rare pleasure that a book instantly fascinates me to such a degree that I read it from cover to cover in one session. It occurs even more seldomly that I procede with a second reading of the work right after completing the first one.
The Fire From Within contains cristal clear, practical, to the point observations from a Third Side perspective, reduced to the very core of the issue plus a refreshing portion of humour. The author elaborates on manifold topics ranging from Greater Magic to self-defense issues, including philosophical aspects of Satanism as well as movie reviews. Being a newby as concerns firearms, the considerations and conclusions of an adept and experienced expert in that field turn out to be a most precious source of information. Not to mention, that I came to re-discover my fascination with the archetype of Batman that I recall from my childhood years. Numerous further examples could follow.
And yet, one has to read between the lines with care and wit. Hardly ever, have I come across a comparable capability to convey a maximum of quality information with a minimum of quantity in words. It is surely no incident that Magister Nemo’s work fits in so well in my bookshelf in line with the Doktor’s works and Magus Gilmore’s The Satanic Scriptures.
The tome provides strongly recommended reading for those few individuals who feel the heat of the black flame burning fiercely and for everyone who is seriously willing to acquire a firm under- standing of the essence of true Satanism. “Satanism Needs An Enema!” clears up the ever returning question whether Satanists do believe in a literal external diabolic deity once and for all, thus it would certainly save us from lengthy explanations and discussions, if only the essay was read by the constantly questioning drones.
Volume Two is eagerly longed for!
