I've got it, all 1,000+ pages of it, but I've never read it. Same with his 1922 novel, Diary of a Drug Fiend.

"Hemingway makes a passing reference to him in his A MOVEABLE FEAST, with someone whispering about the most evil man in the world as he walks past a Paris restaurant."

Crowley's also on the cover of Sgt. Pepper. Was the song Mr. Crowley by Black Sabbath or solo Ozzy? And didn't one of Led Zeppelin buy his house? I think Page, maybe Jones? (Brian Jones lived in AA Milne's house, died in the pool there.)
