Kenneth Grant forums
A new internet site is in preparation, dedicated to the discussion and exploration of the life, influences, work and legacy of Kenneth Grant. It will be launched later this month, and further details will follow shortly.
I hope that the new site will develop into as rich a source of information on Grant's work that LAShTAL is for Crowley's. The work of the two men is intertwined to some degree, and the two sites will I think be complementary.
I shall remain a member, participant and supporter of LAShTAL, and I hope that the Typhonian and Kenneth Grant forums on this site retain their place.
Other developments are planned to facilitate the legacy of Grant's work, and will be announced later.
thanks for the info!
Best of luck in the endeavor!
Save my screen name for me over there. 😛
Very much looking forward to the Forums, Mick! I don't think I'll be using the same handle as I do here, though. Perhaps one of my motto's instead.
Due to other commitments, the launch of this new website Forum had to be postponed. Work is continuing, and the site will be inaugurated over the coming months.
I'll be posting more information as work proceeds.
Any news on this project? Perhaps a rough estimate of when we can expect to see it launched?
A test site has existed for a while now. One of the problems we had was how the forums should be structured, but we now have a structure which in my view is a sound basis for further development.
Developmental work is continuing, and the site will be launched later this year. We were thinking of timing the launch of the site with the forthcoming republication of Cults of the Shadow in September. In my view that's feasible, but there are still quite a few eyes to be dotted and teas to be crossed.
When the launch date is set, we'll announce it on various platforms such as LAShTAL, and the Starfire Publishing website, as well as Facebook pages such as 'Kenneth Grant and the Typhonian Tradition'.
Looking forward to it, Mick!
Thanks for the update. I'm looking forward to it as well.
The Forums should be going live in a few days time.
The site is far from the finished product, and further development will take place in the light of experience. For now, the site has several boards. The first breaks down Kenneth's mystical and magical development into a number of different stages. The second board divides his published work into a number of different categories. A third board is for discussion of his legacy and the development of his work. More boards will be added as the need becomes apparent.
More later, when the Forums are formally launched.
I hope you have much Success with this Mick.
Thank you, Jamie. There is a growing interest in Kenneth Grant's work, and I'm sure that the Forums will have a part to play in developing that interest further.
Sounds excellent Michael!
The discussion site 'The Primal Grimoire', focusing on the work of Kenneth Grant and the Typhonian Tradition, is now open for access and participation. The site guidelines are at present informal and common-sense: be courteous, remain on-topic, and do not post copyright-infringing material. Posts will be moderated where such simple criteria are not understood.
There are at present three boards. The first concentrates on Grant's magical and mystical development, with a number of sub-forums each covering a phase of development. The second covers Grant's published work, with sub-forums for such categories as the Typhonian Trilogies, the Nightside Narratives, the Carfax Monographs. The third board focuses on Grant's legacy and how it might develop.
Presently based on the ProBoards template, the site will continue to be developed over the coming weeks and months. The address:
We look forward to seeing you there.
Nice work, Michael.
I wish your Forums the very best and fully expect them to complement the posts here. In due course, I'll review the presence of some of the Typhonian Forums on LAShTAL, with a view to re-focusing the latter on AC's influence and legacy in relation to Kenneth Grant.
Owner and Editor
Thanks for your good wishes, Paul.
I'd like to point out in this thread that the new site is the work of several co-workers, but in particular of Paolo Sammut, whose original idea it was, who knows so much more about the technicalities of the site than do I, and without whom it would not have been possible.
