Starfire
Volume Two Number Three

Work on the long-awaited and much-anticipated new issue of Starfire is almost complete. Scheduled for publication in late Summer 2007, this will be a substantial and scintillating collection of articles, short stories and artwork. Set for inclusion in this Thelemic enchiridion are:

The Magic of Folly by Richard Ward – some considerations of the tarot card The Fool, which trace the development of this card throughout the years and across a variety of decks;

Sinister Shades in Yellow by Alistair Coombs – an essay which explores the work of the 20th Century writer Sax Rohmer, several of whose novels, short stories and plays have occult and metaphysical themes;

The Stone of Stars by Oliver St. John – a fascinating short story woven around a talismanic stone and the forces it calls forth, bringing catastrophe to those caught up in its wake;

Maranatha: a Blessing or a Curse by Stephen Dziklewicz – a qabalistic analysis of the word ‘Maranatha’and its implicits;

Tzaddi is not the Star by Elmet Caradoc – some considerations of the Tarot with regard to the well-known and oft-quoted phrase from Liber AL;

The Aphotic Oracle by Daniel Letts – an aphoristic essay on the use of creativity, fiction and imagination in magic;

Nightmare Sorcery by Richard Gavin – the use of nightmare in magical work, and how the magician might go about utilising his or her dreams in this fashion;

The Altar by Peter Smith – again, a fascinating short story, this time focusing on the history of a lost grimoire and how it is entwined with the fate of a glamorous sorcerer;

A Very Personal Tantrum by Joe Claxton – an account of some unintended consequences which arose in the course of specific ritual work, bringing to mind Kenneth Grant’s use of the term ‘tangential tantrums’.

The issue will include a supplement consisting of several presentations from the April 2004 Thelema Beyond Crowley Conference held in London to mark the Centenary of the transmission of The Book of the Law:

Looking Forward! by Kenneth Grant – a brief written Conference address which looks beyond the centenary of the Cairo Working;

The Letter Killeth, But The Spirit Maketh Free by Michael Staley – how the dynamism and sponteneity of Thelema might sit uneasily with the injunction to ‘change not as much as the style of a letter’;

A Hundred Years Hence by Martin Starr – an overview of how Thelema has unfolded in its first hundred years;

Calling Mr. Crowley by Andrew Collins – an account of some dealings with an apparent shade of Crowley;

The Evolution of Maat Magick by Margaret Ingalls – how Maat Magick developed in its early years.

Final details of content, price and the opportunity for pre-publication orders will be sent out to all on our mailing list once the issue has gone to press.
