Hey there, CM Fam!
For a lot of you, this will be the first chaosmagick.com newsletter you recieve. Most likely, you came to be on my list either through a purchase at my Gumroad store or via the defunct site groundzerosum.com.
If for any reason you don’t want to be on this newsletter, it’s super easy to unsubscribe at the bottom, and I apologize for littering your inbox.
For those who would like to stay on the list, this newsletter will cover our progress on launching the chaosmagick.com website on Halloween 2021 and all that entails.

Site Updates
I’m done with the site design at this point. Now it’s all about adding SEO rich content to go to the top of the CM search engine charts.
You can also check out the store at store.chaosmagick.com.
I’m still looking for diverse perspectives on CM from people out there, so if you have something to say, hit me up: joe@chaosmagick.com.
We’re also still in need of influencers and community mods, so if that sounds interesting to you, please make it known.
We have a Discord but not near enough people on there conversing. Please join us and talk about CM, your hobbies, or just to chat and be social.
Why Discord, you may ask? Other than the obvious (it’s called Discord, for fuck’s sake,) we’re navigating away from toxic social media platforms for group interaction.
Discord will allow US to moderate the community, not some faceless, underpaid schlep with no understanding of context.
CM + Comix = ?
So, I’ve been experimenting a while now with a hypersigil/servitor concept. It’s actually an integral part of my comic, The Last True Mage.
It’s about a chaos magician that becomes the avatar of the True Mage, the Keeper of the Omniversal Accords which governs all magick in all known universes, dimensions, and potential timelines.
This has been an extensive work, begun in the early days of the pandemic. Its design lends it towards several ways to access the archetypal powers represented in its pages.
In fact, most of the characters are hypersigils representing an aspect of people I know, and some form of magick taken to an exaggerated fictional state. The whole thing is layer upon layer of magickal intent, but only to tell a fun story.
It’s what I call hyper-shoaling, meaning several hypersigils layered over one another to magnify success. This is also being boosted by a servitor of the main character, Verone.
Yeah, it’s definitely meant for fun primarily. Full of action and unrealistic magick, but with a not-so-subtle nod towards chaos magick and the community.
If you’re looking for more serious tales of magick, they’re certainly out there. This is not that. It’s an action-adventure comic that’s a joyful bit of entertainment and gives people a “hero” of a sort they’ve never had before.
I plan on collecting the first arc, Psychonaut Blues, by the end of the summer. I will release both digital and limited print numbers.
Are you interested in writing?
I’m looking for a couple of writers that are interested in being mentored to improve their craft. While I can’t afford to pay anyone, I can offer a learning experience for a couple of people to get better at what they want to do.
I write for a living and make a decent salary off of it. I went to college for it. I’ve been writing for over 20 years on a professional level, across the spectrum: fiction, non-fiction, articles, technical documents, advertising, etc.
It’s not a full-time gig or anything. I’d give you some topics to write about and you’d write. We’d edit together via Google Docs so you can learn a thing or two about a thing or two.
Stuff I absolutely won’t touch: stream of consciousness writing and poetry. That’s all freestyle.
Your work would be published in its finished state via the site, newsletter, and zines with the byline of your choosing.
If you’re interested, send me a writing sample at submissions@chaosmagick.com.
Random CM thoughts…
As I trawl around the various CM groups online, sprinkled over the various platforms on which they exist, I find a lot of people that feel powerless trying to take something back for themselves.
A lot of times it devolves into this weird desire to tell people they’re doing magick the wrong way.
Honestly, this is how the old heads can tell the difference between a real practitioner of the arts or not. We don’t have to scream at them about it. We know, and that’s all that really matters.
It’s okay to not understand a thing, but to dismiss it out of hand due to the arrogance of ego is beyond stupidity.
Differing perspectives make CM such an interesting form of practicing the art of magick, and the willingness to embrace those views are important.
This does not mean having to devote your belief to it, but your understanding of a unique perspective, which is almost as important to any magician of fair grade, tbph.
See you in two weeks!
I’ll be out of town next weekend, so no newsletter. We’ll be back in a couple of weeks. Stay safe out there!
