The effort to bring to television George Pendle's excellent 2006 book about Jack Parsons, Strange Angel, is finally nearing fruition as a Ridley Scott-produced series premieres on the streaming service CBS All Access on June 14.

John Whitesides "Jack" Parsons has long been a figure of fascination because he was both a pioneer of America's early rocketry and a sex magick occultist who led an American chapter of thelema, Aleister Crowley's riff on the dark arts which would become such an inspiration for L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology.

Scientology watchers are well aware that Hubbard and Parsons got up to some pretty kinky things in 1945-46 at Parsons' Pasadena home and in the Southern California desert involving a woman named Marjorie Cameron and an attempt to create "the Moonchild," an incarnation of the anti-Christ.
