6/Novels and poetry.

Thanks for that, Robert.

I can thoroughly recommend:

Kenneth Grant: A Bibliography - From 1948 by Henrik Bogdan. Published in 2003 by Academia Esoterica Press and with a Foreword by Martin Starr.

A real labour of love under will...

It is indeed a good little booklet with a very nice cover Paul. The only problem is that it lists Grant's works in every language and I don't speak Croatian!
Mind you if anyone knows why Grant is so popular in the Baltic countrys I would be very interested to know.
Best Wishes Robert.

Grant mentions the work of Zivorad Mihajlovic-Slavinski - e.g. three chapters in 'Beyond the Mauve Zone'. Zivorad is Serbian, and he has quite a following in the region.

Thank You Michael.
What about all the Italian editions of Grant's work? He also has a huge following in South America, Argentina in particular.
Best Wishes Robert.
PS Any chance of the articles from Man,Myth and Magic being reprinted ? Plus the A.O. Spare art work that went with them. Some of them, in particular the three pastels which adorn the article on Atavism have never been reproduced since.

I have recently been fortunate to find a full set of Man Myth Magic and I would be interested in finding the articles by Mr Grant. I have searched here as well as the biblography page from Fulgur
http://www.fulgur.co.uk/authors/grant/bibliography/

But I can find no definitive listing. As Dave Evans mentioned elsewhere on this site the indexing in MMM may be inaccurate.
http://www.lashtal.com/nuke/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&p=18929#18929

Any help would be appreciated.

It should be noted that I have read At The Feet of the Guru reprints the articles from MMM but I am not sure if this is correct.

Many Thanks,

Scott

Baltic countries are Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia. They are in the Northern Europe.
Croatia is in the Southeastern Europe.
Balkan is not the same animal as Baltic.
It's like saying that Canada is a country in the Latin America.

At the Feet of the Guru is a collection of articles by Kenneth Grant on recent figures in Indian mysticism, with emphasis on Advaita Vedanta. As such it includes, for instance, articles which were published in Asian magazines from the early 1950s onwards.

It include only those articles from Man, Myth & Magic which fall within the subject-matter of At the Feet of the Guru. There are six of them, taken from issue numbers 3 (Anandayami Ma), 43 (Haranath), 83 (Ramakrishna, Ramana Maharshi), 88 (Sai Baba of Shirdi), and 92 (Sivananda).

There are various other articles in Man, Myth & Magic which are outside the scope of At the Feet of the Guru, and which will likely be collected sometime in another collection, together with for instance the articles by Grant which were published International Times in the late 1960s/early 1970s and other articles published in various magazines.

Best wishes,

Michael.

Thanks for the clarificaton Michael! It sounds like Starfire has some great things planned for future releases 🙂 I was not aware of the International Times articles so that is something to definitely look forward to.

Do you happen to know if there is a consolidated biblography available online that would specify which articles were written by Grant. I haven't had much chance coming across a hardcopy of the biblography published a few years back.

Cheers,
S

Hi einDoppelganger,

I might have a few copies left of the biblio that I published a few years ago. If you are interested in a copy, then pm me.

All best,

Thank you for highlighting the issue numbers in Man Myth and Magic Michael. Would you know offhand what the other issue numbers are?

Not offhand, no. I was only able to quote the issue numbers above because they are given in the contents page of At the Feet of the Guru. I will, though, work at assembling a list of the remaining articles.

Best wishes,

Michael.

I'm assuming those refer to the numbers of the magazine format of MM&M.

The hardcover set I have is only 24 volumes.

Ahh, thats the source of my confusion as well. Thanks Michael, I have the hardback volumes not the magazines. I read your post wrong and didnt see you were referencing MMM issues.
I will just keep an eye out for bylines as I read. Kinda like an egg hunt 😉

Henrik : Thanks for the information! I Will PM you now for the biblo 🙂

Cheers,

Scott

Hi. Three of Grant's best articles in Man Myth & Magic are in no. 50 ( 'Nightmare World of Austin Spare' ) No. 65 ( 'Water Witch' ) & No. 84 ( 'Dreaming Out Of Space', on Lovecraft ). But these were printed on the back covers so if you find a set in the 7 binders they will be missing.

When the magazine was issued one was encouraged to remove the covers & house the mags in the binders supplied by the publisher's, they also supplied a black plastic cover with slide binder to house the back covers to form what the called 'The Frontiers of Belief' section but these never seem to be found with the sets.

einDoppelganger,

You have the collected US edition, which was published as 24 separate hardback volumes, whereas the UK people here are discussing the UK edition, which was published as a weekly magazine together with a set of binders. (It was a popular method of publishing in the '70s, although it could be annoying as some publications would be cancelled if they weren't selling well, leaving those who had bought issues with only half a set!)

Anyway, I digress: I have the same edition, I bought it off eBay a few years ago. It's complete, all of Grant's articles are in there, just not in the same place they were in the UK edition. The ones that were on the back covers will be found in the last two volumes. The Grant articles that appeared between the covers are in their usual place. It's arranged alphabetically, so as long as you know the titles, you shouldn't have any problem finding them.

There was a pirate edition paperback floating around a while back, that collected all of Grant's hard-to-find articles, together with an interview, but I don't have a copy and haven't seen it anywhere for a while.

Alastrum: Thank you for the information. That is great news that the volumes are complete and now I know where to go looking in the individual books.

Many thanks again to all who posted info on this.

Alastrum,

"There was a pirate edition paperback floating around a while back, that collected all of Grant's hard-to-find articles, together with an interview, but I don't have a copy and haven't seen it anywhere for a while."

I have never heard of this pirate edition before, and if you - or anybody else - have more information about it, I'd love to hear it.

All best,

Henrik

I have this and it is called 'Dreaming out of Space & Other Essays'. It has short articles; 'Dreaming Out of Space, Breath and the Element of the soul, jewels, atavism and something about a water witch. They are good. Reminds me, I borrowed it off a "spurious" contact a while ago and have yet to return it at some point!

Keep up The Great Work,

Charles

Fascinating, Charles, I hadn't heard of this...

Any chance, perhaps, of adding details and a scan of the cover to the Bibliographia Thelemica?

I was given a copy of this many years ago. It is somewhere in the Staley archives, and I will hunt it out over the next few days. The cover used the same detail from Spare's pastel 'The Vampires are Coming' as on MM&M's first-issue poster, but in black and white.

Incidentally, this was not a pirate edition so far as I am aware, but a compilation for private distribution of some or all of the MM&M articles.

Best wishes,

Michael.

Yep, that's the one Michael, its a really nice image (The Vampires are Coming) on the front. Its also on Peter Haining's 'The Necromancers',1970. Coronet Books, a collection of black magick stories by Crowley, Sax Rohmer and many others.

I hope you find it in your archives.

Best Wishes

Charles

No, this isn't the one I was referring to. I can't remember the exact title now (something like 'An Interview with Aossic Aiwass'), but the cover had a sort of blueish pic of Grant (that one taken in the 70's of him in the garden, I think). I saw it on eBay, but didn't bother getting it as I already have everything in it. I'm afraid I don't have any more info on it, country of origin, or publisher, etc. It was a paperback book, and was in English.

I have located two more Grant articles in the US Hardback editions.

the "Jewels" article mentioned above is in Volume 11

"Atavism" is found in Volume 2 and includes two nice color reproductions of Spare paintings as well as a small black and white reproduction of "The Vampires are Coming" from the cover of Volume 1.

'The Vampires are coming' is also in 'Zos Speaks' the Fulgur publication by K&S Grant. It is the last one of the colour plates.

Hey you forgot to add MAAT MAGICK: A Guide to Self-Initiation by NEMA to the list.
Kenneth Grant wrote the Foreword.
Nema is such a nice lady.
