About Nathaniel J. Harris


Nathaniel J. Harris was born in Colchester, Essex, in the year 1970, into a family with a reputation for witchcraft going back several generations. His mother is a prominent figure within the Pagan movement. His father went on to become a set designer, working on films such as The Great Rock & Roll Swindle, and the TV adaptation of The Hitch-hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, as well as being one of the world’s first digital special effects experts, working many of the first rock / pop videos to appear on MTV, and the cult sword and sorcery TV series Knightmare. According to his mother, Nathaniel was accidentally conceived in a black mass, while his father has claimed Nathaniel was conceived after a séance that went disastrously wrong and resulted in violent poltergeist activity.

Nathaniel began his formal magical training at 14, having already taken up the practice of meditation. He went on to become involved with a variety of occult groups, most notably his mother’s own coven The House of the Old Ways, and the original Chaos magic order The Illuminates of Thanateros, within which he quickly rose to prominence. He resigned from both groups due to severe abuses of trust and power by their leadership.

Nathaniel has published numerous texts on the subjects of magick and witchcraft, all of which attracted the attention of leading occultists, and few of which failed to cause controversy. In the late 1990s and early 2000s he made a number of TV appearances, most notably featuring in the National Geographic documentary Taboo: Witchcraft, but has no intention of appearing on TV again unless it is in the role of whistle-blower.

Nathaniel has since gone on to found the magical ‘anti-order’ I.C.Θ.N., of which The Neuronomicon is the official training manual, and remains dedicated to exposing abusers and charlatans within the occult community.

Books by Nathaniel J. Harris:



This has to be the definitive book on the occult. It is beautifully written and also highly accessible. The artwork is amazing too.”

  • Pat Mills, originator of 2000AD.

One of the best magick books I’ve read in years. I would say on a par with some of Aleister Crowley’s works. And I do not say that lightly.”

  • Michael (Mick) Norris, illustrator of Liber Null & Psychonaut.


  • Ray Sherwin, author of The Book of Results, Vitriol, and Ouroboros, originator of Chaos magic.

An education.”

  • Valerie Sinason, The Tavistock Institute

BEAST WING 666 tells the reality concerning a ritualistic paedophile ring operating within the UK and abroad. Its author is a well-known occultist and the survivor of a vendetta from one of the world’s most infamous (so called) ‘magical’ orders.
It is hoped this book will help to get the truth out, so that abusive people can no longer prosper in the occult community. It is also hoped it will be of help to other survivors who are struggling to gain justice.

Wise men throughout the generations have recognised the power of the Psalms to get results: from attracting love and wealth, to overcoming adversaries, to banishing the powers of evil. Yet these are not mere incantations, to be repeated with an empty heart. Pay heed to these words, and follow their advice closely. To those who trust in the LORD, and who faithfully hold his precepts, great favours shall be granted.

THE DEVIL’S DOOR is offered as a grimoire of Infernal Witchcraft, connecting the modern Aspirant to deeper tradition. The symbolism identifies this work as of the Widdershins or ‘Left Hand’ Path; that which has been called Black Magick. For those to whom this work is intended, there is much to be gained. The Devil’s Door swings wide, and leads directly to the inmost of Mysteries.



OLD HAGS OF BRISTOL: An Open Letter to All Attendees

Chaos Magic, Child Abuse, Child Neglect, Colin Batley, Conspiracy, Cover Up, Crime, Elite Paedophile Network, Illuminates of Thanateros, Magick, Occult, Paedophilia, Religion, Ritual Abuse, Ritual Murder

Since police are not taking appropriate action, and since these Id-IOTs have not replied or made any attempt to clear up the trouble and offense they have caused, the original post referred to below has now been republished.



The founders of the OLD HAGS OF BRISTOL have received the following emails, the first under the heading Notice of Possible Legal Action, the second under Notice of Removal. Since it is apparent there are links between this group and the ‘cul-de-sac’ paedophile ring it is clear this is a matter of grave public concern. At the time of publishing this I have yet to receive any reply;







The OLD HAGS is an ‘open circle’ moot held in The Hatchet on the last Wednesday of every month. It should be clear that, whether or not the founders of The Old Hags agree with me or not concerning my opinions of any kind, my partner and I have every legal right to enter The Hatchet at any time, even during the days they hold their meetings, without fear of intimidation or violence. The same goes for any of my friends, or anyone else reading this.

It is my understanding that their next meeting is on Wednesday the 31st October. Since it is Halloween they are having a themed dressing up party – they will be dressed as their favourite famous occultists. No doubt these Id-IOTs will all come as themselves, but they should still be easy enough to pick out from the crowds likely to be crawling through the many pubs in the area that night.

It should also be clear that my intentions from the beginning of this exchange have been entirely benign. This entire ‘drama’ has happened only because I have dared to defend myself. It is not, and has never been, my intention to encourage others to harass those mentioned in any way, and at no point have I or anyone I know threatened intimidation or violence of any kind.

It should also be apparent that the founders of The OLD HAGS moot have shown an alarming lack of concern over this very serious issue and have demonstrated a complete lack of integrity. Anyone taking a look through my blog, where there are many articles and talks concerning the practice of magick, can see I would be an obvious asset to any group genuinely engaged in its pursuit.

My wife and I have for some time been involved in running a closed society, widely distributed but including many names of note, and others of genuine talent, also offering a training structure guaranteed to increase results to any practitioner, regardless of their ‘path’. One reason we were interested in attending our local moots is because we intend to enlarge our society locally. Should this interest any of The OLD HAG’s members they are welcome to make an application by writing to me at the below email address;


OLD HAGS MOOT, BRISTOL – An Open Letter to all Attendees

Chaos Magic, Child Abuse, Child Neglect, Colin Batley, Conspiracy, Cover Up, Crime, Elite Paedophile Network, Illuminates of Thanateros, Mind Control, Occult, Paedophilia, Religion, Ritual Abuse, Ritual Murder

I recently attempted to join the Old Hag’s Moot, here in Bristol. I first joined their FaceBook group, which resulted in the following exchange.



This required serious consideration, so I spent some hours composing my reply. However, when I attempted to post it I found I had been – unwisely and rudely – blocked from doing so. For this reason I am publishing my reply as an open letter.


Thank you for your considered reply. I understand that antagonism with a founding member of your group would cause controversy if I attended your meetings. That is a great shame, as my wife and I were hoping to meet with like minded people without all this unpleasantness being brought up. It is painful and humiliating for us both.

You are aware that I have publicly identified Vayne, others of the Illuminates of Thanateros such as ‘Kite’ (whose name we did not know until we met him and recognized him by description), and my own family (Vayne is the stepfather of my daughter, whose mother was also involved, as were my biological parents and stepfather – all of which makes my grief beyond words – as does the possibility that my daughter may also have been harmed by them), as members of an ‘occult’ paedophile ring the press called ‘the cul-de-sac cult’, purported to have been led by Colin Batley, and well reported to have strong links to Bristol and London. The allegations against Julian Vayne, and others, are made upon genuine disclosures made by a learning disabled child victim of the cul-de-sac cult, repeatedly abused by them for a decade – when in the care of his biological father – before he found the courage to speak up – or trusted anyone enough to do so.


The cul-de-sac cult, according to ALL disclosures including those resulting in prosecution, had a wide membership. These did not come from the cul-de-sac he lived in – they came from the Pagan community. The cult is well documented to have terrorized its members at gunpoint, to have used rape, blackmail, and brainwashing to enforce control over its members, and to have sexually exploited children. Batley and his wives did not do this all on their own. Batley served extra time for refusing to identify those who had also been involved in his crimes. It cannot be rationally denied that there are people from this cult who are still at large and pose a threat to our community. We should all look very carefully at anyone among us who attempts to claim otherwise.

I have been warning our community since 2012 as to who these people are. In all this time, despite many complaints from the guilty, the police have not made me edit or take down my website. Nor have any other survivors of the cul-de-sac cult come forward to say I am exposing the wrong people. Nor has Valerie Sinason, the expert in ritual abuse and mind-control (brainwashing, as the papers called it) who aided the police in busting the cul-de-sac cult, and whose patients include those abused by Jimmy Savile. I have also spoken directly to the police officers who successfully busted Batley and his ‘wives’, and they did not think we were wrong either.

Nor, indeed, did my friend Ray Sherwin – the man who coined the phrase ‘Chaos magic’, nor his beautiful and talented wife, Lorraine. Nor did Mick Norris (RIP), who illustrated Peter J. Carroll’s only genuinely successful book – the ‘training manual’ of the Illuminates of Thanateros. Nor did Pat Mills, who made Chaos magic famous through his comic 2000AD – who gave Alan Moore and Grant Morrison their breaks. Also note that, while he still refuses to admit that Batley was part of the IOT and has published his own (easily disproved) lies about me, even Peter J. Carroll has been keen to distance himself from the IOT as far as possible – and it his ‘accomplishment’ to have formed the order in the first place! He has also published several statements rightly questioning Vayne and Nikki Wyrd’s ‘magical credibility’, and stating that they have made a shambles of the order and “are not the kind of people one would invite round for lunch”.

It should be clear to anyone the antagonism between Vayne and myself is far more serious than any petty vendetta, as he has attempted to claim it can be dismissed as. Nor am I suffering any form of mental aberration, be it delusion or sociopathy.


The document linked below proves that it was myself who went to the police concerning these matters. It is also an official recognition that police failed to conduct a proper interview with the child making the allegations , and that my complaint provoked a (minor, and too late for us) change in procedure. It is also proof that the child, a young man, is disabled and judged unfit to ‘take the stand’ in court. Since he is the only ‘witness’ to the abuses he suffered, besides the guilty, this means it is not possible for the police to make a prosecution. It is terrible failing in the law that allows the abuse disabled and vulnerable children to continue. This was exactly why Savile got away with what he did in children’s hospitals, and the law still has not changed. Note that if this document was fake I would now already be in prison – it has a police officer’s signature and is published online for anyone to see –


This document also proves that the true situation is not at all as Julian Vayne has publicly stated in his libel against me, ‘backed up’ by Mogg Morgan, also identified as having been active in my stepson’s abuses – proving almost fatal to my career as a writer, although I have recovered over the past 6 years through my own efforts.


While the libel against me from these criminal over the years is self-contradictory, inconsistent, and riddled with what can easily be shown to be lies, our allegations have remained entirely consistent and – even if the police have been unable to prosecute Vayne and his friends due to their victim being mentally disabled (and who wouldn’t be, having been repeatedly abused by a cult from the age of 6?) – cannot be disproved.

I also ask you to consider the following;


I understand, although I have never met him, that Julian Vayne can be charming, appears knowledgable, and has – at this time – much support from the Pagan community. There are many who feel his friendship validates them as ‘magicians’. It perhaps angers you that I have made such allegations towards someone who has already gained your trust. It can be hard, sometimes, to recognize when we have been fooled – but none of us are beyond it, as I know too well and to my great pain. It can also be difficult when recognizing that we have been fooled also reveals failings in our community, and even perhaps causes us to question who we believe we are. Nevertheless, the myopia, and sheer lack of concern, from some people over this matter has been shocking in itself.

Our culture as a whole is undergoing a convulsion, and people are only beginning to realise paedophile rings even exist, let alone the extent of the problem, and Paganism has been no exception. Support has not been lacking, however. Indeed it has been steadily growing, and looks set to continue to do so. Our culture as a whole, even the higher levels of occult orders, even the Pagan Federation, are learning from their mistakes. But first we all have to be honest enough with ourselves to realize we have made them, to recognize that no human being is infallible, especially when faced with those who have make deceiving others their life long speciality – as do sexual predators of any kind..

I am sure you know I have had to publish online concerning the other moot you suggested I attend. Michael Slater failed to communicate with us rationally. We all hope you do not make the same failing – as does my friend Quinn, who was recently slandered by members of your moot due to his friendship with me. I know he has previously attempted to engage with you all rationally over this matter only to be met with a refusal to engage with the problem at all.

As you are only too aware, I live in Bristol, as does the mother of the child who identified Vayne. We are both available for you to meet with and speak to face to face concerning this very serious matter. It is painful and humiliating for us to have to talk about, but it is also our social duty. We hope you make the right choice, because in reality there is only one – not just for us, but for yourselves. I have also written several successful books and enjoy giving talks / workshops, as I used to do for large audiences before having to out members of our community for being paedophiles.

Both Julian Vayne and Peter J. Carroll have been warned by police to cease their provocations towards us, online or offline. If you have any emails from them libelling us we would be grateful if you alerted the police about their behaviour. Many of their lies have put us in severe danger, and have been intended to.

Permission is here granted to reproduce the above on any medium, provided it is done so in its entirety, without editing or censorship. I am also happy for you to share it with the police.

We are also willing to answer further questions by email.
