It has come to my attention and I for one am very excited by the news 😀

'Hadean Press is pleased to announce the imminent publication after a
long hiatus of the first of the final three issues of The Equinox:
British Journal of Thelema, Volume VII. Vernal Equinox, 2009.
Originally produced by Kiblah Publishing between the years 1988
through 1994 as the successor to The New Equinox: British Journal of
Magick, eight of eleven intended issues were released. The material
included in the initial issues was primarily focused on the
exploration of the system of English Qaballa as received and developed
by a group of British Thelemites. Much the same can be expected from
the final three issues, though much has changed in the years between
releases.

In addition to publishing the final three issues of the BJoT, Volume
VII, Hadean Press will also offer a compilation of issues 1 - 8 in a
special, limited edition with details to be announced'.

A most excellent announcement indeed! I heard about from the EQ list. Btw, did you know Jim Lees set up a new web page last November?

Thelema IAO9

And I believe there is more to come!

I have seen Jim Lees revamped site but to be honest I find it bereft of all the practical stuff that made the initial site so fascinating. The essay on the discovery of EQ is good reading though!

"The Equinox"? What an original name for a journal... And a 'journal' dedicated solely to an obscure group of Thelemites' notion of what the English Qabalah is...

Agreed! Very insightful! :). Do you know if Jake also maintains a public website? He seems to be still active on the EQ list...

What's wrong with the word 'journal'? One might agree with another journal-publisher like yourself in finding the name "Equinox" unoriginal, but why put 'journal' in single quotation marks, when it describes the kind of publication perfectly?

Just curious...

Ah no Jake does not unfortunately. However he can usually be found flitting between the Verum, Solomonic and EQ groups like a butterfly sorcerer 😆

Actually, it was 11, not counting the various books which were subsequently issued as further numbers of The Equinox.

Does it really matter what it's called? There have been several different publications using the name Equinox since Crowley's day. I doubt if anyone buys this or any other journal by the same name thinking that it is another in the series by Crowley.

Wait for the contents, and then by all means continue to sneer if you want to.

Best wishes,

Staley.

Whenever someone announces a publication that might draw attention from his own incipient effort, IAO131 is there to sneer, it seems. 🙄

What other publications have I sneered at exactly? I am not fond of Grant's work yet I didnt mention anything about Starfire for example...

Before any other smart-arse jumps in, let me expand Mick's point... Crowley published eleven issues of the Equinox before the complicating the bibliography with Eight Lectures on Yoga and The Book of Thoth.

How many volumes did he publish? Well one could say three given that The Equinox of the Gods was Vol III No 1 - or one could say two - given that Vol II was a volume of silence.

My understanding is that the folks behind Kiblah Publishing used the title in acknowledgement of the earlier New Equinox / British Journal of Magick, which in turn acknowledged the New Equinox from the 1970s Leeds' scene.

Personally I'm looking forward to seeing the new version...and would do, whatever they chose to call it.

How about Doomsayers' Digest for starters? Also Silverstar (though I can at least understand that). You've also been exceptionally rude to Acrylick and her artwork, and are generally obnoxious about events like the upcoming "Thelema Intensive". It has been commented on before by Paul. The comments in each case seem to be petty and superficial, and not based on (e.g.) having read the particular journal.

You're not rude about established stuff like Starfire, Parsons or Crowley ipse.

Is that why I published her work in an issue of the Journal of Thelemic Studies? I think her art is great, and I doubt you understand any of our personal differences beyond your assumptions (and I dont remember being 'exceptionally rude' to her on these forums)... Also, I have opinions. The Thelema Intensive looks expensive - so what? I actually appreciate OTO journals like Doomsayer's Digest but I also have criticisms... thats how things are. I disagree completely about your wild conspiracy theories but I dont act like a kid and call you 'obnoxious,' 'petty' etc. That just seems like a strange personal vendetta (I dont mind, really... you can go on trying to insult me if you like, but I find it interesting & amusing).

Somewhat like your comments about my comments?

The now-deleted "comment" in the galleries to one of Acrylick's pictures followed her refusal to allow you to publish any more of her artwork in your journal. You seem to have a habit of getting people's backs up with ill-considered remarks, and I don't think it does you or your journal any favours -- that's all I have to say about it.

Now, if by "wild conspiracy theories" you allude to my comments about Yorke, Symonds and Grant, following Prof. Spence, they are so wild that they are in line with comments from experts and scholars (have you read Spence, or are you just making this up as you go?). Please see my post of this evening on the subject for an illustration of "wild"! 😛

As for a "vendetta" (!?), I think you might be taking yourself a little too seriously...

Precisely! 😀 Ray Sherwin started The New Equinox in the 70s and then passed the torch in about 1980 to Jim Lees who subsequently passed in on to Jake. Its quite clear in the announcement that this is a continuation of a project commenced in 1988 and paused in 1994. It would make no sense to call it anything else.

However, I also don't care what they call it, the contents matter more than the name.....

Well in some circles at least 🙄

And in reference to the obscure group of Thelemites, I can only conclude from the comment that anklebiter131 considers himself/herself/itself to be mainstream?
