During the 1950s and early 1960s the Sydney-based trance-artist and Pan-worshipper, Rosaleen Norton, was well known in Australia as the Witch of Kings Cross and was frequently portrayed in the tabloid press as an evil devil-worshipping figure from the red-light district. Norton attracted attention from both the public at large and also the local police for engaging in bizarre pagan sex-rituals with her lover, the poet Gavin Greenlees. Details of these activities would surface from time to time in the local courts when Norton was defending her metaphysical beliefs and seeking to defuse claims that her magical paintings and drawings were obscene. Norton was also associated with the scandal that eventually engulfed the professional career of renowned musical conductor, Eugene (later, Sir Eugene) Goossens who had arrived in Australia in 1947 and became a member of Nortons magical coven six years later. Norton dedicated her magical practice to the Great God Pan and to a lesser extent Hecate, Lilith and Lucifer.
She was also intrigued by the visionary potential of Kundalini yoga, out-of-the-body trance exploration and Aleister Crowleys Thelemic sex magick and combined all of these elements in her ritual activities. Pans Daughter is the only biography of Rosaleen Norton and provides the most detailed and authoritative account of her magical beliefs and practices. First published in Britain by Mandrake in 1993, it is now reissued in a revised and expanded edition.
