This video is 5 yrs old – and I stand by everything I said back then. I was not ‘ill’, nor lying. The Illuminates of Thanateros have continued to operate as a paedophile ring because YOU have stood by and hoped someone else would sort the problem out.. leaving the victims to fend for themselves.
This week saw the 50th anniversary of the release of Rosemary’s Baby. Here are some of my thoughts on the subject.
It wasn’t that long ago Peter J. Carroll made an agreement with the police to cease his harassment of me. He has been getting very upset about my attempts to warn people about serious abuses committed against children and adults by members of the ‘occult community’, some of whom are officers and initiates of the Illuminates of Thanateros. Yes, really. Read on.
In return for Peter Carroll’s agreement with the police to desist I removed from this blog a series of emails between us, within which he continued to pour scorn on our disclosures, responding to any evidence by digging himself a deeper hole. Understandably, he did not want people reading these. I was keen to observe the truce.
Sadly, Chaos Pope Pete has not kept to his side of the agreement. In his review of Ray Sherwin’s informative book Ouroboros, Chaos Pope Pete has made what many people have recognised as thinly veiled and damaging libel against Jasmine and myself;
Read the whole of his review here; http://www.specularium.org/blog/item/226-two-reviews
Every word Pope Pete says has been a lie, from his founding of the Illuminates of Thanateros and the pseudo-religion of Chaos magic, through to his current denials and libel.
Firstly, Ray Sherwin is clear in his book that his allegations are informed by many sources. Jasmine and I are not alone in our concerns about the IOT’s criminal activities, or who have disclosed regarding their tactics of intimidation and abuse. I have quite a few emails in my folders too, from the UK, Germany, and the USA.
I am not an ‘ex-occultist’, either. My book The Neuronomicon: A 21st Century Grimoire, offers a significant advance in the technology of magic, as well as telling many uncomfortable truths regarding ‘ritual abuse’ and ‘brainwashing’. was published early this year. It gained early praises from Ray Sherwin (who coined the phrase ‘Chaos magic’), Mick Norris (who illustrated Peter Carroll’s only successful book, Liber Nul & Psychonaut), Pat Mills (who was as surprised as me to find his name listed at the bottom of WiccaPaedia’s article on Chaos magic, and has written too many successful books to count), and Valerie Sinason of the Tavistock Institute, author of a government commissioned paper on the reality of ‘ritual abuse’, whose expertise was called upon by police during the bust of Colin Batley – see below.
Nor are Jasmine and I a ‘cult of two’. We have no desire fore ‘followers’, such as Mr. Carroll and his kind depend upon. Our support is all around us and cannot be infiltrated or ‘subverted’ to right wing or abusive ends. We have no need of a ‘cult’, and would rather not have anything to do with them. As a wise philosopher observed, “If one wishes to become 100,000, all one needs to do is attract enough zeroes.”
Our allegations and disclosures are not some ‘conspiracy theory’ or the paranoia of a fragile mind, as Peter Carroll would have you believe. A number of perpetrators have already been jailed – on numerous counts of rape and child sexual exploitation. They include Colin Batley, widely reported in the press, and in the disclosures of those whose testimonies were good enough for the law courts, to have been at – or close to – the centre of a wide reaching cult funded through pornography, forced prostitution, and the making of paedophile images. This cult is reported in the newspapers as using traumatic methods of ‘brainwashing’. Initiates were forced to participate in ritual abuses at gunpoint, filmed, and controlled through blackmail. Although their fears were belittled by the judge and the press – they were also terrorized with threats of ‘assassination’. Only three of those involved went to jail. It’s all there in the newspapers;
Read a full report here: https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2011/mar/11/sex-cult-leader-colin-batley-sentenced. There are many more reports and disclosures that may be found simply by Googling his name.
Shortly before Batley’s bust, within spitting distance of Batley’s front doorstepjust along the coast, we also saw the following prosecution;
Despite the belittling of the cultists’ fear of assassination by the courts and the press, the murder of Peter Solheim suggests they had good reason to be afraid. Read the full report here;
Again, many other reports may be found by Googling Peter Solheim’s name.
Note that my mother and stepfather, Ann and Adrian Brynn-Evans, appear in the trial concerning the murder of Peter Solheim. Alongside them was a man called Peter Petrauske, who was later prosecuted for ritualistic child abuse, alongside another creep Nick (). The evidence was presented in court that they were members of a ritualistic paedophile ring.
Full report here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cornwall-20705898
Peter Solheim was soon after revealed to have been part of that same ring;
So that’s at least two proven ‘Pagan paedophiles’ my mother and stepfather can be proven to have associated with. As is reported regarding the ‘initiates’ of Colin Batley’s cult, my mother also has an Eye of Horus tattoo on the back of her neck; I made myself, and know to have been a mark for a group they were both involved in, none of whom I had met, but whom – before the bust – they both talked about a lot. It appears on camera during the National Geographic documentary, Taboo: Witchcraft;
See the full video here: https://youtu.be/OoGWrsN2uyw
Ann and Adrian fled the West country shortly after these busts, and now live in Milton Keyenes. They may be regularly found at the ‘spinal tap’ stone circle that has recently been erected there. I hear they are involved with a group calling themselves the Order of the Oath. They also run the Wytches’ Market in Glastonbury;
Ann & Adrian Brynn-Evans
Anyone can see all these cases are connected, and that a ritualistic and sadistic paedophile ring is still in operation. Anyone can also see Carroll is lying in his comments about us. He knows full well we are telling the truth but refuses to speak out about these criminals.
Carroll’s lies don’t stop there. Let’s talk about that ‘shaggy dog story’ he references in the same review.. I happen to know about this.
Pope Pete has claimed, among many other lies, both online to the police, that I am ashamed my homosexual affair during my mid twenties with Peter Mastin; a buffoon who, to my eternal shame, gained admission into the IOT primarily through his relationship with me; http://www.specularium.org/blog/item/204-a-future-of-magic-esoterics
Mastin is who now the among IOT’s so called ‘Magi’ and is the only member ever to be granted a ‘Chaos Bishopric’. Peter Mastin was also closely involved with Colin Batley, quite possibly since the days Batley lived in London – and is an equally dangerous psychopath.
What Mastin looked like then
What Mastin looks like now.
The reality is that my affair with Mastin lasted only a few months, would have been even shorter if it leaving him had not meant being homeless, and was 23 years ago. It is far from the only homosexual relationship I have had in my life; I am bisexual. Furthermore, Mastin is bisexual, too. During the time when Mastin’s daughter was in her infancy, he went out with a woman called Angelena Lovecraft. Many years later I also had a relationship with this woman, and she entered the ‘pact’ through her relationship with me, taking the name aka Soror V⸫ D ⸫.
Angelena also told me all about the Rottweiler he kept back then. Like the Rottweilers he kept during the time I knew him, and its disgusting habits. She confirmed that Mastin’s story, related to me during ‘pillow talk’, was true:
Back in the 1980s, Mastin lived in squats. He was an alcoholic who urinated and defecated in the room where he slept. One day, his daughter came to stay with him and was toddling around keeping herself amused. Mastin told me his friend ‘Maurice’ was giving him a blow-job in his bedroom, and that he had left the door ajar. He relished in describing how he had seen her toddle past the door, followed by his horny Rottweiler. It did not need ‘training’ to rape her. It was non-penetrative, the way dogs often rub themselves up against legs or furniture.
Mastin told me that in later years his daughter made false allegations against him of neglect and abuse, all based upon this one ‘accident’, with Esther Ransom getting the partial blame for ‘putting ideas in her head’. We cannot ask her ourselves, as she is dead.
I and many others often heard Mastin ‘joke’ that the best thing about raping eight year old little girls was flipping them over and pretending they are six year old little boys. He ‘joked’ about using the semen of litle boys as skin cream. There were arguments about whether he was serious – I suspected he was, but everyone around me insisted he was just trying to be ‘scary’. After I split with Peter Mastin, back in 1994, he was granted initiation into the IOT. Nobody listened to my concerns, and I in turn became doubtful. I should have left the order right there and then. I was only in my twenties and was too enamoured with the whole idea of being a ‘Chaos magician’.
Even worse, Mastin embroiled himself in the life of Nicola Ward aka Nikki Wyrd, now a leading figure in the IOT, and the mother of my daughter.
And if that isn’t worrying enough, in 2012 I found out my parents had also been involved in the Batley cult. Together they had been making films of child abuse and child torture. The kind of this this sicko was buying; https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2262854/ian-watkins-lostprophets-paedophile-rape-victims/
Note that, as with the Batley cult, it took ten years before police busted this subhuman piece of sh*t.
Some but not all of the films they made used the ‘props’ of black magic ritual. Regardless of any conspiracy theories, dis-proven or otherwise, these films present the image of ‘genuine’ Satanic Ritual Abuse. Others were filmed in venues such as an out of season public house in Cornwall, a ‘scenario’ appearing to be a pub full of men all raping a teenage boy. No doubt the fact that Satanic Ritual Abuse has apparently been proven not to exist means such films would fetch a high price, if a buyer such as () could have been found by them. Chaos Magic, Crowley, and Satanism, are all ‘big news’ in the music industry at the moment. It is not implausible that this is exactly what happened.
Yes, really. These creepy paedophiles know rock stars. It’s a small world.
We have already outed Peter Pracownick (yes, another Peter – weird huh?) for his involvement with the Batley cult. Look him up on the internet. He appears to be a very successful artist.
My parents, Ann & Adrian Brynn-Evans, performed his Wiccan ‘handfasting’ to Jasmine, back in 2002, in the sprawling garden of Travalgar Manor. The circle that day included members of Hawkwind, Marrillion, and an old gangster that used to work for the Krays. Gary Glitter didn’t make it that day, but Pracownick has often been heard boasting of their friendship.
There are many people in this ‘Pagan’ paedophile network, and they identify as following many different ‘paths’ – from Wicca, Druidry, Thelema, and Chaos magic. Google ‘Peter Pracownick Julian Vayne’ and you’ll see the links. Quite recently, Julian Vayne and Nicola Ward (aka Nikki Wyrd) have been running workshops at St. Nectarn’s glen and staying over at Peter Pracownick’s.
Google ‘Julian Vayne IOT’ and you’ll see he is a current Magi (cough splutter) of the IOT, and a friend of my mother and stepfather since the 1990s (see the post link). He has been obsessively spiteful about me online, even though the two of us have never met. When a similar truce was offered as between myself and Carroll, I was informed by the police that he claimed he couldn’t remove his posts either at source or with his publisher, Mandrake of Oxford. https://mandrake.uk.net/nathaniel-j-harris/
Google ‘Julian Vayne Hoaxted’ and you’ll see his name pop up connected to the ensuing online arguments regarding the uninvestigated Hampstead Heath ‘ritual abuse’ case; the dismissal of which is also being used in attempts to discredit those of us speaking out in connection to cases that are most definitely real.
Google ‘Julian Vayne Nikki Wyrd’, and you’ll see that he is now the ‘stepfather’ of my daughter. They got together sometime around 2011, over a decade and a half after my own relationship with Nikki had ended, although we remained in each other’s lives until 2001, as we were both in the IOT.
We are far from the only people to express our concerns about them:
Our situation is extremely unpleasant, and often terrifying. The police do nothing to defend us. The reaction of the authorities in our case has been no better than with any of those that have reached trial – too little, and too late. More than a few times they have made matters far worse for us. We are left with no choice but to defend ourselves, and every time we do we risk arrest. I’m cheaper option than either Carroll or Vayne; even if the only result is that the police get another statement from me regarding the paedophile ring.
Back to Carroll’s attempts to cover the trail between the Batley cult and the IOT. In Alongside the review Ouroboros he also reviews Jaq D. Hawkin’s book The Chaonomicon. I’d just like to point out the title could easily be confused with a book I published back in 2009, of which there were (and this is a genuine coincidence) a mere 23 copies printed; The Khaonomicon. At that time Carroll and I were getting along and he wrote the introduction. Carroll, and others, complained to the printer about my book, threatening legal action they would never have been able to back up, and the printer sadly conceded – keeping every penny it earned. There are no signs left of it on the internet I know of, although I shortly after I saw one sell over ebay for around £150..
It was this book that caused an argument with Carroll when I disobeyed his demand not to disclose what I already knew about the IOT’s criminal activity in its addendum, which Carroll had not been allowed to read – Liber Nemesis; disclosures about the IOT’s sustained vendetta since my resignation (which they lie was an excommunication) in 2001, and of being stalked by a psycho with a tattooed face, whose name at that time we did not know, and who Jasmine first saw sat outside our flat in Norwich in 2005, and encountered outside Carroll’s shop in Clifton (now closed down, incidently) in 2006, soon after we moved to Bristol – to be nearer to my family during the dying years of my grandmother, and closer to Tintagel, where Jasmine’s son was in the ‘care’ of his father, Peter Pracownick.
We also found out, through another series of ‘accidental slip’, that the ‘tattoos’ on his face were a disguise drawn on by Peter with Sharpie pens by Peter Pracownick, and ‘fixed’ with hairspray (see a video of the method here). It is a common method of making ‘fake tattoos’ used by movie ‘make-up artists’. I also remember, even at the time, noticing our stalkers ‘facial tattoos’ looked like a lot like Pracownick’s artwork. They included a pair of cartoonish devil horns on his brow, with an Eye of Horus between them. Peter Pracownick had previously threatened Jasmine’s life – telling her a man with tattoos over his face, who was a ‘real devil’, would be coming to kill her. We later recognised him from the newspapers as none other Colin Batley.
Carroll’s harassment of us has extended far beyond the libel he has posted about me on his website;
Yes, we both live in Bristol. Like most of our city’s artists, from Banksy through to Mark Stewart and Massive Attack, to Pyratrix Circus or any of our ‘contemporary sacred clowns’, I live pretty much hand to mouth. And like most of our artistic community, I’m not much of a materialist, and and happy enough to choose this life.
In stark contrast, Carroll is a ‘successful businessman’ with right wing breadhead politics – during the foundation of UKIP’s arm in Bristol he was their treasurer. Being arrogant and wealthy he thinks he can bully me in the street, using both criminals and the police as his ‘dogs’. Back when I was in the IOT, Dave Lee, who knew Carroll well, told me that when Carroll doesn’t like someone in Bristol he goes round the ‘half way houses’ and enlists ‘rehabilitated’ criminals for the price of a crate of Special Brew. Both Jasmine and myself have experienced harassment in the streets from threatening strangers as a recurring problem over several years, and it seems likely that Carroll did this us – as we informed the police.
The ‘half way’ houses of Bristol, by the way, mostly serve category A sex offenders; http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/panorama/6123534.stm
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
Confront those concerned with the above evidence, all within the public domain. Confront their lies about us. Listen to their replies, or take note of their aversions, and see if they are consistent and backed up by evidence.
If you have further evidence, contact the police (and if fobbed of, the IPCC). Contact journalists and researchers such as Sonia Poulton or Jasun Horsley.
Make use of the comments section below this post – Jasmine and I will answer any questions as best as we can.
Whatever you do, don’t stay silent.
I received a FB message an old ‘soror’ from my Chaos magic days, when I was involved with the Illuminates of Thanateros. She accepted that links between my parents – Ann & Adrian Brynn-Evans – and the paedophile ring operating in the West Country, were all well documented; including Colin Batley and his cul-de-sac cult (Ann’s initiatory ‘Eye of Horus’ tattoo can be seen in National Geographic: Taboo: Witchcraft), and the murder of Peter Solheim (Ann & Adrian appeared at the murder trial, along with Peter Petrauske – later convicted as a member of the ring, with links also made to Solheim – Google the newspaper reports), However, said ex-soror then made the absurd claim that I could not demonstrate any links between my family, the ring, and the IOT, concluding she had no reason to believe me.
It seems this is misinformation has been widely spread by the IOT, no doubt – quite ironically – originating with its leadership, currently Julian Vayne and Nikki Wyrd (real name Nicola Ward); my daughter’s step-father and biological mother. In other words, the current leadership of the IOT in the UK and my family are, to all intents and purposes, one and the same.
Julian Vayne has known Ann and Adrian since the 1990s. Intimately, I expect, considering that my parents joined Julian’s Sex Magic Working Group, back when they were all living in ‘the big MK’ of Milton Keynes. Embarrassing, but true. They later reconnected in the West Country through their mutual membership of The Pagan Federation, and The Friends of the Museum of Witchcraft. These connections can all be verified by any researcher.
Julian’s partner Nicola Ward, also happens to be the mother of my only daughter, Rose. Ann refers to Nicola as her ‘daughter out-law’, rather than in-law, since we never married yet they are related through Rose. Nicola’s daughter is Ann Brynn-Evans’ grand-daughter.
And yes, you read that right. It seems Julian was first screwing my mother, then many years later the mother of my daughter, more recently the both of them at once. This is indicative of how incestuous and sleazy the small world of ‘occultism’ really is. Worse than this, according to the disclosures of my stepson, while he was in the care of his biological father Peter Pracownick, also an old Pagan friend of Adrian’s, he was handed over to the Colin Batley cult for sexual exploitation – the creation of extreme child abuse images, some – but not all – of which was ‘Satanically themed’. Julian Vayne, Nicola Ward, and Ann & Adrian Brynn-Evans, were, according to these disclosures, all involved in the Colin Batley group. As from the IOT’s Halloween meeting in 2003, held at Trevalga Manor, Cornwall, they were all involved in the sexual abuse of my learning disabled stepson, who was at that time just 6 years old. Since then he had been constantly re-targetted, and this is almost definitely continuing today – he has been returned to Trevalga Manor, and the people he said abused him make no secret of there presence there. The connection between Peter Pracownick, Julian Vayne and Nicola Ward is also easily verified with a simple Google search.
Rose has sex-death (the meaning of ‘Thanateros’) cultists for a mother (Nicola Ward), stepfather (Julian Vayne), grandfather (Robert Harris), grandmother (Ann Brynn-Evans), and step-grandfather (Adrian Brynn-Evans). Given the addition of corruption in local authorities, and a paedophile ring members who ‘just happened’ to be living in our immediate area here in Bristol (Martyn Tucker), it is no wonder she was totally ‘duped’ – Jasmine and I were the only people around her telling the truth. She puts herself in dire jeopardy by remaining in touch with them, along with those around her, and is apparently completely their creature. Since Rose has been exposed as feeding information about us to people trying to harm us, ran messages between Martyn Tucker (a member of the paedophile ring) and Peter Pracownick (the biological father), and has lied to us and caused as much additional hurt as possible, Rose has made herself too great a liability to allow in our lives.
That’s how real this is, and how tragic. I have even had to cut all contact with my own daughter. That doesn’t mean I don’t still love her, or that she does not still love me, however duped she has been into misdirecting her anger. I’ll never forget her saying, “If it is all true, Dad is to blame for abandoning me to a paedophile ring.” Which is hardly fair – just because it didn’t work out between her mother and me does not mean I abandoned her – indeed I spent many years fighting for access; contact between Rose and I was, in the end, enforced by the Family Law Courts. Ironic, then, that Rose should, in 2013, appear in the Family Law Courts here in Bristol to joyfully grass her father up for smoking marijuana, as if this were ‘evidence’ I was a bad parent, betraying her step-brother by attempting to sway the courts into returning him to his abusers. As it happened the Magistrate made a completely fair ruling – that her stepbrother should choose for himself where he wanted to be – but social services never explained this choice to him.
And speaking of misdirected anger; I also have to deal with people like this ex-soror, who seems to have returned to activity in the Illuminates of Thanateros, UK. I understand her cognitive dissonance only too well. It is hard to accept such unpalatable truths, especially if they concern people you once thought of as ‘frater’ or ‘soror’, let alone if they are also of your own blood family. My ex-soror claims to have no reason to believe me. The truth is, she has no genuine reason not to. We have no reason to lie. We are long over being re-traumatized when people fail to hear us, but we won’t pretend it is easy putting our necks above the line for other people’s benefit. It is not like either of us owed her any favours, nor anyone else we have warned, but at least we tried.
There is some good news, however small in comparison to our tragedy.
Judging by sales of THE NUERONOMICΘN, and the gathering membership of ICΘN, more and more people are seeing through the lies. This is very encouraging – not just for us, but for occultism as a whole. Many of us remember when it was impossible to tell your average Catholic that their preistcraft was riddled with paedophiles, or that there were close links between the Mafia and the Vatican. Our situation has been entirely comparable. More so than most ‘occultists’ are yet ready to realize. The Vatican had been peddling exactly the same lies and excuses, as well as silencing disclosures with allegations of ‘false memory syndrome’, ‘mental health issues’, ‘attention seeking’, and all the rest, that certain occult leaders (Satanic and otherwise) continue to peddle today – the only difference is that the rings operating within occultism continue to thrive unchallenged.
It is clear that, if we want occultism to thrive, we need to expose the paedophiles and sort this problem out from the ground upwards. Nobody else is going to do this for us. It is also clear that those with the wisdom to hear the disclosures of victims, or of whistle-blowers like ourselves, remain in the minority – but our numbers are growing, and they shall continue to grow.
It will not be long before there are enough of us to make life very difficult for the guilty indeed.
Those opposed to abusive mind control, within occultism and society as a whole, need to organise, network, and direct our magick towards its complete and absolute destruction. We are engaged in what amounts to psychic warfare. Let our minds become our weapons, with which to liberate ourselves and others. To this end the anti-order I.C.Θ.N. has been formed: the International Conspiracy of Theta Neuromancers.
I.C.Θ.N. is a network of independent sorcerers and psychic researchers, membership of which is through self initiation and declaration – in much the same manner as the hacker group Anonymous. No expectations are placed upon agents beyond supporting one another in our work and opposing those who are our natural enemies. Agents may declare themselves publicly or keep their allegiance secret according to personal preference. They may work together or alone, but always towards a common end; the liberation of our culture from mind control.
Agents recognise one another through the Theta symbol, displayed upon the person as jewellery, a tattoo, a badge, or even simply as an avatar over social media, in much the same way as the members of any group recognise one another through shared symbols. I.C.Θ.N. has no official centre, leadership, or online presence. Networking is achieved through coincidental meetings and mutual introductions only. All that is required is to display the symbol, cast our enchantments, and we shall find one another. Upon doing so it may be appropriate to offer the ‘watch words’; “Hello, you and I should know each other.”
Where the establishment form orders, the magicians of I.C.Θ.N. form societies. These rely entirely upon voluntary cooperation, with nobody giving or obeying orders of any kind. Structure must be allowed to arise spontaneously; one does not defeat an enemy by playing a game whose rules they have devised, but by playing a game they cannot predict or determine. Similarly, there are certain patterns that tend to arise within free social dynamics, such as the circle, and the circles within circles; to deny this would also be to deny address to implicit hierarchies that arise naturally.
There are no robes of office, or requirements of nudity, in group rituals of I.C.Θ.N.. Members may wear any clothing they choose, so long as it is either black or white; the neutral ‘non colours’. If service to the archetypes is to be given, coloured clothing may be adopted as appropriate to the seven rays. If an altar is prepared, the charaktēre of Theta should be prominently displayed.
All workings, actions, or other activities are the responsibility of the individuals concerned. Any agent may coordinate a meeting or action. No agent is obligated to attend or comply. All agents must remain aware of attempts to infiltrate or otherwise pervert the course of the I.C.Θ.N. egregore.
Active members of I.C.Θ.N. are invited, but not obligated, to share confirmed research and ‘tried and tested’ rituals with other agents through I.C.Θ.N. TRAINING PAPERS. These should be clearly designated as ‘internal’ and ‘public’ with regards to publication.
While discretion may be important to the success of certain projects, and magical operations are generally undermined through discussion with outsiders, no oaths of secrecy are required. Agents may also leave at any time without fear of reprisals from the conspiracy; this will never in itself be considered a betrayal.
It should be apparent that I.C.Θ.N. will not gain support from the established / establishment ‘occult orders’; to which it is diametrically opposed. Such is neither courted or required. Agents may choose to boycott any business supporting or compromising with abusive mind control groups, or conceive of direct actions to damage such businesses and where possible expose and destroy them. It is up to each individual agent to decide for themselves what actions they deem appropriate.
⸫ Г ⸫
It is clear that Western culture requires desperate and urgent healing, of the kind that only magick can provide. The agents of I.C.Θ.N. include those organically called to this task by virtue of the light within them; acting as solitary pylons for the Gamma frequencies, or uniting to awaken this integrating light in others, and in society as a whole.
The New Aeon will dawn only when we all share the power to see what we see, hear what we hear, and know what we know.

Those who were on the scene in the 1980s – 1990s will be aware that one of the things that gave Chaos magic its ‘street cred’ was the way it kept being referenced in the comic 2000AD.. where the contemporary cult figures Alan More and Grant Morrison cut their teeth. I have met no small number of CM practitioners that have admitted to me that their initial introduction was through the comic – without this it probably would never have taken off and become the fad it is today. Phil Hine boasts of being included as a character in 2000AD his book Prime Chaos (what he neglects to admit is that I was the one who made that possible – not the only time he has been disingenuous regarding his gains from our brief ‘friendship’). Julian Vayne also talks about being a fan of 2000AD in his self aggrandising work The Book of Baphomet (published in 2011 when Vayne joined the I.O.T., ten years after I had resigned, and written with my ex-partner Nikki Wyrd, who I split with 25 years ago). For some bizarre reason Vayne identifies Baphomet with Judge Dredd, rather than the hoofed and horned anti-hero Nemesis the Warlock, or the robot Chaos magician Deadlock. Perhaps he was jealous not just of my previous relationship with his partner but also of my friendship with the creator of those characters, Pat Mills – but was unaware that Pat was the originator of the entire comic in the first place?
What none of the current Id-I.O.T.s will admit to, at least these days, is that I played a large part in Chaos magic’s appearance in 2000AD. I have also appeared in the comic a number of times, although unlike Phil Hine I appear under my own name – as myself! – and have not been lampooned or killed off horribly. You can find me as Brother Nathaniel in Nemesis the Warlock, Book 3, in the only ever Nemesis photo-strip (1986) I appeared twice (I was the punk in Forbidden Planet, and the top-hat wearing loon on the moon who scrawled “Nothing is true & everything is possible” on the cell walls), while more recently, a character called Nathaniel appeared in book 2 of Pat Mill’s Defoe, a story set in the 17th century, where I am seen flying around in angelic armour created by – and stolen from – Dr. John Dee.
Chaos Magic has been appearing again within the pages of 2000AD recently – the character Nemesis is long dead, but Deadlock remains alive in Pat Mill’s story ABC Warriors. The below page is from this week’s copy (artwork is by the incomparable Clint Langley)..
Gosh. Deadlock sacrificing children? It is almost as if Pat Mills has been paying attention to our situation, and that the ‘leadership’ of Chaos magic (i.e. the Illuminates of Thanateros) has fallen into the hands of ritualistic child abusers, is it not? Deadlock almost appears to be quoting them.. And he’s being fought against by Tubal-Cain, too, whose name just happens to be a Masonic ‘Watchword’..
Support for our cause pops up in the most unexpected places, such as on news stands across the UK, and in a specialist comic shops near you..
