Stephen Skiner is an author and lecturer.  He has written many books on Western Mystery Traditions. During the 1970s he was the driving force behind Askin Publishers, producing editions of classic magical works such as Agrippa's Fourth Book of Occult Philosophy and the Archidoxes of Magic by Paracelsus, as well as several titles by Austin Osman Spare, Aleister Crowley, Dr Donald Laycock (The Enochian Dictionary) and others. The high quality of Askin editions has made them popular with collectors. The first of these was an oversized, quarter-leather edition of the primary source book of Enochian magic, the True & Faithful Relation of what passed between Dr John Dee…and some Spirits. During the 1970s he co-wrote books with Francis King, including Techniques of High Magic, which has gone through many editions since it was first released. Also with Francis King he wrote Nostradamus. Then he followed this with the best selling Millennium Prophecies.
