A.Buchanan: Crowley's colourful wikipedia entry does state that chess was one of the interests of this famous/notorious individual. (2013-01-19)

A.Buchanan: I would remove WPb3, WPg3, WBe7 & BPb2, while moving WPc4 to c5 and Bc6 to h5. Doesn't get rid of the (minor?) duals but it does lighten the board. (2015-03-18)

Aleister Crowley articles are now available here:
https://www.100thmonkeypress.com/biblio/acrowley/articles/articles.htm
The Eastbourne Gazette chess articles run from Jan-Jul 1894.
Problem 8 appears in the 14 March issue:
| 8 | 3 p 3 Kt | 3 P P 1 P 1 | R p p k P 3 | 1 P 3 Q p 1 | 1 p 3
B p | 3 P 3 P | 8
Note that the third rank which includes carriage return only adds to 7, and there is no WK.
On 28 March, it was announced:
No.8. Unsolvable. Author’s intention. Q B Sq
(presumably 1.Qf1 in modern notation)
Thomas Brieden: Es fehlt ein wK - unlösbar -
bei YACPDB unter der Nr. 336847 genauso geführt. (2015-03-21)
A.Buchanan: See explanation above. (2015-03-21)
Mario Richter: The wK should be placed on b3, and the black pawn on c3 instead. The idea might have been 1. Df1 c4+ 2. Dxc4# (2015-03-22)
