Doktor Snake & Jimmy Lee Shreeve – The power of magick names
If you read my About page, you’ll see that I’ve also written books under my birth name Jimmy Lee Shreeve. The ABOUT page says:
Doktor Snake’s other books – written as Jimmy Lee Shreeve – include How To Be Famous (Orion), Mary Jane’s Hash Brownies (Cico), Blood Rites (Arrow), Cannibals (John Blake) and Human Sacrifice (Barricade). As Jimmy Lee Shreeve, his writings have been published in top newspapers and magazines around the world, including The Independent, Sunday Express, and Maxim magazine.
I became Dr. Snake after meeting my voodoo mentor Earl Marlowe in the 1980s, when I was a young guitar player living in pretty damn harsh poverty. This is chronicled in the TWILIGHT BELIEVER story over at my DoktorSnake.Me site. You’ll discover how I received my magick name – a pretty wild experience! (Some people online get my birth name – Jimmy Lee Shreeve – wrong for some reason, but that’s the web for you, no editorial fact checking like you get in newspapers).
One thing I should say is that before I met Earl Marlowe, and received my magick name Dr. Snake (through swamp voodoo initiation), I already knew a good deal about magick and the occult – having had some very strange supernatural experiences going back to when I was still in the cot.
