Vladlena's Book Of Fission

Kseniya Vladlena is a retired Russian nuclear scientist and sorceress. The first known person to combine the two 'hobbies', her book, written in 1981, is the primary reference to this new and dangerous flavour of magick.

Her book is a simple collection of papers written in standard Russian, later copied and distributed to a few other Soviet sorcerors, who made further copies which got into circulation of the occult community after the fall of communism. One must have a good knowledge of nuclear physics as well as a good command of magick to understand and use the information contained within.
