I made a post here once about how Savitri Devi was the first philosopher I ever discovered, 14 years old on the Burzum forum. People said it was bait, but it's true! I was heavily into metal and various forums, there was one called ANUS that was connected with a Burzum board, one of the members there had a Savitri avi and would speak about her as if she was the most intelligent and learned woman who ever lived. From there I found the Savitri archive website that had all kinds of pics and anecdotes about her, I loved the handdrawn covers she made for her books, but I didn't get around to reading them until a decade later when I got an e-reader. It's funny that in my early teens I was obliviously reading posts by "nazis" w/o really thinking much of it, nor having any kind of reaction against it, I remained a lib-by-default normie for years afterward.

What do I think of her works? Well she's ultimately a curio, more notable for being an eccentric than a legitimately worthwhile writer. Her more "theoretical" works are as dull and ponderous as they are insane, but I still have a soft spot for her life story, as I respect all autists and weirdos who live lives against the grain, and I think in a more open-minded world NYRB would reprint her more biographical and therefore more charming and likeable works starting with Defiance and the one about cats.
