From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mandrake of Oxford is a specialist independent publisher based in Oxford, England[1] primarily known for the publication of "hands-on" books for occult practitioners.[2] The company was started in 1986 under the name Golden Dawn Publications,[3] but changed its name to Mandrake upon the publication of Sexual Magick by Katon Shual (a pen-name of founder Mogg Morgan[4]) in 1988.[5]

According to the company website, they publish texts on magick, occulture, tantra and Thelema.[5]



Mandrake's founder, Mogg Morgan, when interviewed by occultebooks, said that he chose the name in 1987 as an homage to Aleister Crowley (see Mandrake Press) and that he prefers to publish new writers who are continuing to develop the Thelemic tradition.[6] Mandrake is now a partnership of Mogg & Kym Morgan. Kym Morgan is mainly responsible for Mandrake's growing crime list "Classic Crime Studies".


Mandrake of Oxford is best known for discovering German occultist freestyle shaman Jan Fries,[7] and they have published several of his works, including his seminal work, Visual Magick.[8] The company also publishes the annual peer-reviewed[2] Journal for the Academic Study of Magic for an international panel of academics, and the administration of the JSM is housed at present at the University of the West of England.[9] The Journal's first issue was produced in spring 2003, in parallel with an international conference, Magical Practice and Belief 1800-2000, which was held at Bristol University.[2]
