We've been wanting to do a SittingNow episode about Grant and the Typhonian tradition for a while now, but have had no luck getting any response from Starfire. Could anyone here nominate a good candidate that is a known good interviewee for our show?

 

Bit of a random question I realise,

Well if Mr. Staley is not available, then I'd recommend Peter Levenda. He wrote that fantastic book called 'The Dark Lord', & has appeared on various podcasts for this & other works. I'm sure that you could pick his brain for an hour or two on this subject no problem.

We?

Why would you (plural) be wanting to do an expose of a secret society that apparently doesn't want the publicity?

Not random. There are a few folks hereabout that are linked to the TOTO (Wasn't that the dog in Oz?), now just Typhonian. Folks from the highest (innermost) realm will surely respond in some fashion to you, right here, in this very column.

Right. Him. He produced or reproduced serious errors in fact regarding Solar Lodge ... so how could I (or, by extension, anyone) trust him on any other thing?

I see no reason why anyone, who is NOT a member of some org, or has NOT been one, should seek to reveal the mysteries of that org.

Of course, there is always the concept of "the serious and secret order," but that gets mixed up with "Thelemic Evangelism" and various forms of egomania. What a mess, eh?

-----

Who are you (the "we")?

WHY do you want to do this?

And, finally, the challehe for the password of the season ... ARE you crazy?

Apologies for my lack of response. The pace of work at Starfire Publishing is often relentless, the more so since the reprints of the Typhonian Trilogies are triggering renewed interest in Kenneth Grant's work. If you could email me again please at starfire.books@btinternet.com, perhaps we can sort something out.

@shiva if you're the Shiva of 'Inside Solar Lodge...' then I've been trying to track you down for an interview as well for ages.

@shiva also regarding the plurality of my question, the podcast has more than one host... 'we' seems pretty appropriate, no?

Who, me? What, that band of lunatics?

... for ages. 

I've been here for 14 years ... which can be broken down into four "ages." This (here) is my only point of exposure to the cruel, outside world. And now RTC is coming again. Then, of course, there is my email address - which is printed in (almost) every book.

the podcast has more than one host...

I see. You are part of a broadcasting entity. Please proceed to verify your sanity (or otherwise), and provide some personal credentials (self-issued will be acceptable). I mean, you might be somebody from The Fake News or The Yellow Press ... and "we" can't be too careful about Strangers in our Strange Land once the Springly Equidistance has been had (for 3 months thereafter ... i.e., now).

@SittingNow Love your podcast, been following it a few months now. A KG episode has me excited AF.

(in fact I just listened to the recent Don Webb episode just this morning, coincidentally)

@fraterihsan thanks! Yeah, we’ve mentioned him a lot in recent episodes, so it’s an obvious one to do now.

I hereby request that RTC (the real one, not Carrot Childe) be considered for interviewing or exposure, whichever seems proper.

@shiva 

So Simon says stories that happen to not.....be true to the true story...either some sloppy research or maybe a con that could be necrotic or just the gas lights flickering...

Perhaps the question for the show should be....did Mr. Grant have a sense of humor!

I think AC liked to dangle strings....
