People here seem to start getting into Savitri Devi lately. What got you into reading her? Why do you like her? And where should I start?
I've only read her Wikipedia page and now I'm intrigued and want to learn more.

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.

Personally, I'm fascinated by how far her ideas are outside of the overton window. I'm ordering some of her books soon because I want to understand how people like her think.

She definitely isn't crazy, if that's what you're implying. I think you'll enjoy her books.
