RIP Donald Michael Kraig

On Monday Donald Michael Kraig, author of Modern Magick and Modern Sex Magick, passed away at the age of 62 following a battle with an aggressive form of pancreatic cancer.

Kraig's first book is one of the most popular occult titles of all time with more than 300,000 copies in print over the last twenty years, and as a result he was one of the most influential authors in the field. For many people currently active in the occult community, Modern Magick served as their first introduction to the Golden Dawn magical system.

Unto Donald Michael Kraig from whose eyes the veil of life hath fallen, may there be granted the accomplishment of his true Will; whether he will absorption in the Infinite, or to be united with his chosen and preferred, or to be in contemplation, or to be at peace, or to achieve the labour and heroism of incarnation on this planet or another, or in any Star, or aught else, unto him may there be granted the accomplishment of his will; yea, the accomplishment of his will.

Anyone who wishes to donate funds to Kraig's family in order to cover medical and funeral expenses may do so here. In light of certain ongoing Facebook discussions, be advised that comments criticizing Kraig and/or his work will be removed from this post. This is not the place for them.
