The Work of Kenneth Grant: An Introduction
The recent issue of Starfire included an article 'Scintillations in Mauve' which is an introductory survey of Kenneth Grant's extensive and diverse body of work.
This has been made available as a download on the Starfire Publishing website, and is available from http://www.starfirepublishing.co.uk/downloads/Scintillations_in_Mauve.pdf
Grant's work will be explored in more detail in future issues of Starfire and elsewhere, but in the meantime 'Scintillations in Mauve' serves as a basis for this future work of exploration and development.
Thanks for this Michael!
I think there is a lot of room for more considered studies of KG - in terms of printed books, rather little currently exists.
Smashing. Thank you Michael. I look forward to reading this today. 🙂
Great article! I've only read "Magical Revival" and "A.C. and the Hidden God". The Sax Rohmer novels are something I've been meaning to read for a while now. My girlfreind has both "Dope" and "Brood of the Witch-Queen" in PDF so now I have more reason to get to it. Thanks for posting this! Starfire seems like an exelent journal and I hope to pick one up from your american distro soon.
It's my anticipation that, given the depth and strength of Grant's work, these more considered studies will be undertaken increasingly over the next few years.
I keep telling myself that I'm going to write an essay on what I perceive to be Typhonian strains in Jung's Red Book. One day soon I hope... 😉
"O, soar on/off risk"
"O, soar on/off risk"
That's quite BALL TO SAY. I don't know why my caps lock engaged there... sorry... lol.
Sounds interesting; I think you should go ahead. I'd be interested in something along those lines as a submission for the next issue of Starfire.
well, it seems your cynical "the first taste is free, kid" plan has worked, Michael.
In London this week for work, I began reading the PDF on the way downtown on the Tube today. By the time I arrived at my destination I was already craving the stronger stuff! I dragged my wrecked physique to the nearest book dealer and pushed a few crumpled bills across the counter before shuffling out clutching the new Starfire, eyes darting along the street in search of dingy doorway or garbage strewn alley where I might crouch for a moment to crack the covers and get my fix.
I hope you're happy with what you've done...
I hang my head in shame, William; your post has brought home to me the full horror of my course of action. This morning I took Confession for the first time in a pitiful attempt to expunge my sins, but alas there is no way out.
What can I say . . .
I agree with William, after reading your essay I too am hooked. I had considered not buying this volume but now, come pay day I WILL get my fix!
Damn you Mother Superior! 🙂
Just call him "The Pusher"
🙂 I actually just realised that I still have not bought "The Magical Revival" ordering now from Starfire on eBay as the postage is cheaper for some reason? Before I order tho, this is your account Michael? Yes "starfirepublishing"?
Yes, it is.
Ordered, thanks Michael.
