A free pdf of this book (and why it is so..) can be downloaded from here :- http://theimaginarybook.com/?page_id=310

I thoroughly recommend physical ownership of this volume, looking forward to seeing the next project.

Anyone read this? Any thoughts?

The sections I have read remind me very much of Kenneth Grant.

I understand that the downloads were a limited edition, and have all gone. I did have one, but deleted it after a brief perusal.

Looks like you'll have to take their advice and Imagine it then, Paul.

On the other hand, I'm sure that someone will be able to provide you with a copy, especially given that the above urges all to share it.

Best wishes,

Michael.

From the linked page:

The free download of The Moonchild of Yesod has now been discontinued: after over 2000 downloads(!), uptake had dwindled to only a couple a week, and we figured that pretty much everyone who wanted it now has it.

I wonder what proportion of that 2,000 made it to the end of the book?

Has anyone seen an actual physical copy of the book? I am curious as to just how "imaginary" this company is...

There are some photographs of what appears to be a printed copy, although I had my doubts on seeing that the filename of the rather attractive dustcover image was titled moonchildmockup5.jpg

At least one page appears to have been printed:

Perhaps, with the 'A genuine imaginary book' stamp, this is all a bit of a jape?

Happy to email you a copy ptoner, if you PM me!

Had a brief look through, seemed pretty good, although I was expecting more on chemognosis from the description.

Yes, looks to be very derivative of KG's work.

I wonder what proportion of that 2,000 made it to the end of the book?

I didn't.

There is only one Aleister Crowley. Kenneth Grant knew this and he followed Thelema. He became HIMSELF and not an "Imitation of the Master." In this, he produced a glorious body of highly fertile idiosyncratic genius.

Grant's work asks the same of his readers. "Those who follow" will not do so by aping style and content. I had a hard time with this text as it really felt like the author wanted to BE Grant. So, where Grant's works excite and move me, I found my page-through to devolve into a "Blah blah blah."

VERY impressive that this book was offered as a free pdf. And its author is CLEARLY a VERY smart and knowledgeable person. So I feel a bit shitty offering these comments-and I should print out my pdf and read it ALL to be fair. But time's short and fairness is overrated.

I simply hear our friend Morrissey in the back of my skull:

"The music they constantly play...it says nothing to me about my life."

When I was a teen, I wanted to be William Blake. I was in High School drawing and writing on Pastoral themes. Now I look back like: WTF?

My gun is now loaded with bullets of a less-derivative nature and I can say things that don't fit the "aesthetic." This is quite allright with me as long as the hollow points blast blood.

I'll be interested if any readers find value and breakthrough via this work. As I said, I feel like a shit commenting thus but (as an avid Grant fan-hell, as someone whose LIFE has been impacted by Grant), I couldn't go on with the read.

I had my doubts about this book when Stafford sent me the email for it.  Could not tell whether it was cutting-edge Typhonian practice or some complete pastiche of Kenneth Grant.  As I cannot afford the 81 euros asking price, I was glad to be able to have a look at the online version - for the first and only time, it now appears.

The book turns out to be neither of the above, but a well written development of certain aspects of KG's work.  I find it increasingly difficult to come across any new occult tome that does not tell me a good deal of what I already know, and this is simply the case here, I think.  I don't believe that the author wants to be KG, but then KG's style and work does cast a considerable shadow.  I would need more time to get into the text to give any serious assessment but I did note the discussion on perichoresis in the first chapter, which I found stimulating, and which in my interpretation, is that the process is akin to osmosis through the semi-permeable membrane of the oneiric mind.

Stafford Stone's illustrations are his usual superb realisations of Typhonian eroticism and very difficult to resist, (think the cover of Starfire's 'Liber Lilith', for comparison).

Perhaps someone who has the actual book could consider writing a serious review for the next issue of STARFIRE; assuming that Michael would give serious consideration to its inclusion, of course.

I have received my physical copy of that book few days ago. I could understand critical approach of both Michael and Kyle. After my first superficial go through PDF of book, this summer, my first impression was that the book is mostly pretentious pastiche of Kenneth Grants idea, but I try a little bit harder. First of all, book is written with good erudition of both KG material and also some additional academic stuff, but from my point somehow it lacks authentic and genuine magical and mystical experience. I agree with Kyle that most of the book looks like author really try to be KG but still I like his attempt to make some new connection between some cutting edge science (or pseudo-science – hmmm), especially so called cognitive science. I am myself engaged in that kind of investigation (for example my essay “Topological mapping of the Meon” in ATUA), so I actually like very much some parts of the book and I am sympathetic to this subject. Nevertheless, I am also very aware of the fact that author himself has playing a game with the reader being all the time on the very edge of seriousness and parody (especially with some over pretentious names, titles or self made words) but on the other hand aren’t sometimes beside jokes hidden some real truth.
Well, all in all, it is quite clear that “The Moonchild of Yesod” isn’t something in the range of KG writings, but it is certainly interesting read. At first I was thinking that the book was funny homage to KG, something what has been done by English Heretic project (probably someone would remember English Heretic musical project The Tales of the New Isis Lodge CD), but I consider “The Moonchild” much more serious.
I am sure that beside all of criticism book is certainly worth of buying, at least because of really nice production (it looks great) and entertaining read. Now, when I have physical book, I will go once again through it with more attention. At the moment, to paraphrase Kyle’s using of Morrissey song, I wouldn’t …hang the DJ… neither... burn down the disco… jet.  😉

S.A.,

Inspired by our discussion, and your interest in the book I have decided to give it another go.  I'm not quite finished with it yet, so I'll refrain from forming an overall opinion of the book until I have.  My initial impression: I was not particularly interested by much of it until the chapter "The Sexual Ritual of the Sepher Yetzirah", and by then there are less than 50 pages left.  I say "not particularly interested", but I am not referring to the subject matter.  The subject matter is, of course, interesting.  What I mean is, in the first 3/4 of the book it did not "tell me a good deal of what I already know".  Its all territory covered by Grant already.  But, with us being members of more than one Order that he mentions in the book, this is to be expected.  I do not consider this book to be well written.  I even noticed one instance where he not only is repeating the same thing as he tends to do, but it seemed like he was being lazy and just said "fuck it" and didn't even try to change the way he wrote it.  It appears as if he just used "copy" and "paste".

The author of this book is not a member of same Orders that we are.  If the authors bio is to be believed, he is a member of the Cult of the Yellow Sign.  This book is the first of the time I have heard of this Order manifesting as an actual independent functioning magical body, on the Outer.  If you or anyone are able to find any information on the net or somewhere about them I'd appreciate it if you would PM or email it to me.  I'm not interested in joining or affiliation.  Just curious as to what they are on about, and if they are an actual body of initiates, with the necessary Inner Plane contact(s) informing them with a magical Current, and thus rendering them a genuine magical Order/Cultus.  Possibly an Order/Cultus working with aspects the Lovecraftian Mythos.  Not on par with the E.'.O.'.D.'. and 23 Current emanating from 'Azathoth', of course!  😀 ) 

Mick,
I know you are not a fan of this book, and I remember you mentioning your "brief persual" of the text.  So, I wanted to let you know that the author quotes you from the LAM Workshop at Treadwells in 2006, on pgs. 168, 170, 174.

Care N.O.X

Apologies for not getting back to you to give my final opinions on the book; I've been giving it a careful reading and as you point out the author's writing style is not the easiest to get along with.  He does quote Kenneth Grant a great deal and not always in the most perceptive way, but I do believe that he has something of his own to communicate.  In short, I find the text both stimulating and disappointing in parts.  With reference to "The Sexual Ritual of the Sepher Yetzirah", I knew I was going to have problems with that even before I read a word of it !

Stafford Stone informs me that the book is doing well and there are few copies left, and after all it is a very fine looking book.  He kindly sent me a complimentary copy, more or less for 'old time's sake' I think and not so much to get a review, but I've spent so much time on it that I think some sort of substantial review is required.  Michael informs me that he is happy to consider a review for Starfire subject to his editorial consideration of its presentation, and after all any volume describing itself - among other things - as a work on 'Typhonian Sex Magick' certainly brings it within the scope of Starfire, I would think.  Now that Stafford knows I have a tentative remit for the review, he's not so sure its a good idea.  Ah, publishers can be such peculiar people, God bless'em  ::)

Recall seeing a notification on Facebook for the book which received positive responses from several individuals with intriguing names - perhaps they were members of the Cult of the Yellow Sign ?

Regards - S.A.

After reading parts of the Moonchild Of Yesod, I found the author to be mimicking Kenneth Grant’s writing style by paraphrasing and this book kind of reminded me of Hecate’s Fountain in writing style. As for the criticism of Karl Stone repeating the same thing over as a cut and paste, I recall Kenneth Grant repeating paragraphs in Outside the Circles of Time.

Copy those who are better than you is something actors, musicians, visual artists and authors do to get their feet wet and perhaps Karl Stone might produce better works in the future taking Grant as a starting point. I am skeptical if he practices these techniques and if the Cult of The Yellow Sign exists or will exist for a long time 

I am kind of debating if I want to own the actual book due to the art and I probably could resell for a profit if I do not care for it. The pricing is also a another factor causing me to pass. However, the term hyper chemistry turns me off because the word chemistry is an academic term for science which includes the periodic tables and I feel the word is being misused wrongly.

The funny thing is what if in twenty or so years an occult history book states Karl Stone’s works should he continue is look upon as someone who took Grant’s ideas to revolutionary levels, while the Typhonian Order of Grant’s decayed due to his Grant’s death and the lack of new concepts. Karl Stone might become a competitor that out does the Typhonian Order.

Feel free to email me anytime and we can continue this discussion or anything, really.  I hope to hear from you soon!  I look forward to reading your contributions to the next issue of Starfire

In regards to Grant's writing style, I refer you to Grant's introductory remarks in OTCOT.

He probably does practice those techniques.  If not, it would be very bad form to publish ritual techniques that are purely theoretical with their efficacy not verified by actual praxis.

Agreed.  "Hyper-Alchemy" would have been a more suitable term.

::) That is indeed a "funny thing" because it is utterly absurd.  Karl Stone certainly fell far short of "revolutionary levels" with The Moonchild of Yesod!  Even if he does continue to have books published and produces something new, novel, and interesting, he will not "become a competitor that out does the Typhonian Order."  Are you a member of the Typhonian Order?  I don't believe that you are.  If you were, you would know that the Order has not (and will not) "decayed due to his Grant’s death"(sic).  Since you are not a member, you wouldn't know what new concepts are being and will be developed by initiates of the Order.  You wouldn't know that the concept of Parampara is very important to all initiates of the Typhonian Order.

Thanks for the grammar correction “Grant’s Death” not “his Grant’s death"(sic) and reading my comments.

As for my absurd comments I was trying to be satirical and humorous like Jonathan Swift.  The Typhonian Order should easily dismiss this comment as nonsense. As of right now I doubt what I said would happen, but perhaps in Karl Stone’s world he is taking Grant’s ideas to revolutionary levels. Writers have hit and misses, who is to say his future works might be an improvement.

AdoniaZanoni,

Well, "Death" shouldn't be capitalized, but....whatever.  😉

Care S.A.,

Thank you for your emails, Brother!  I've finished The Moonchild of Yesod and overall it was "okay".  I wasn't really interested by any of it, really, but the last two chapters were "alright".  Again (and I know you'll agree), it did not "tell me a good deal of what I already know".  But, like I said before, this is to be expected.  Those who are familiar with Grant's work won't find much, if anything, new.....especially those "of us", if you catch my drift.  I do look forward to your review of the book, though!

Yours in the Night of Pan,
N.O.X

The book is 220+ pages, and its 11 chapters seem like they could easily be condensed, and the entire book written in under 93 pages.

Sounds like a good Thelemic plan to me, but perhaps keep the 11 chapters and just make them more inspissated !

Actually, N.O.X, all that Hierogamy emphasis and weird Sepher Yetzirah business, has got me going on Zoharic excursions into Sacred Union and different takes on 'Sex Magic', Typhonian or otherwise, even finding interesting snippets in those scintillating epistles of St.Paul - just need to synthesise it properly within the initiated precincts of the Ninth Arch.

Thanks for the discussion, I enjoy reading the digest on these books before buying.

Content aside it does look like a handsome volume production wise, so if on the odd chance I have some spare $$$ floating around I might pick it up. Hopefully the PDF might be available sometime again soon too.

Moderator's Note

It seems I acted hastily, the publishers having written today as follows:

1) Firstly, it needs to be stated that the poster of the link is in no way connected with us, and we do not know who he or she is.
2) While your diligence is to be commended, the fact is that the PDF was explicitly designed to be shared. It is indeed copyrighted, but that applies to the copying of it for commercial purposes; as long as it is merely shared freely between interested readers, we have no objection whatsoever.
3) That said, we do not know which site the poster was linking to. This may make a difference, depending on whether it was a legal or illegal site. So while the torrent itself is perfectly legal, if the site is illegal, this may have placed you in a compromising position. In which case, we understand the necessity of removing the link.
4) We ourselves no longer hold a copy of the PDF.

To anyone interested, the imaginarybook is closing down. And as such they have slashed prices to sell remaining stock.

Moonchild of Yesod is now €40

I’m interested – and will pay an imaginary E40 for the imaginary book (passim John Lennon paying an imaginary sum of money to Yoko Ono to hammer an imaginary nail into her not-imaginary but relatively-very-expensive piece of performance art at the Indica Gallery.)

But wait!  What’s this?

I’m not sure if you are referring to me, obs, but my thumbs are pricking so I’ll take it you might be… I’m also not sure which review in particular you had in mind - please indicate as such if still relevant.  Unfortunately I never get sent review copies of anything any more and am as emotionally deprived as any velvet-beroped VIP deprived of their essential goodies bag.

In the meantime, I have the following I could add to the reviews by Hymenaeus Beta and Clive Harper,

"A wonderful book - magnificently produced" - Clive Harper

"I was impressed."- William Breeze (Hymenaeus Beta, Frater Superior of Ordo Templi Orientis [OTO])

and have written a 'commentary' as requested(?) designed to follow the manner of my ex-brethren from the C.O.T.O.  Here we go, then:

“A revelatory read, full of delights.”
"Crammed with information, filled with insights"
“I couldn’t put it down for a minute  Then I found I could.”
“I couldn’t stop turning the pages.  Until I reached the end.”
"Undeniably – (“That’s enough commentary – Ed”)

I would be pleased to consider obliging with a review of the book itself upon being sent a copy (pm for details) – as with any other similar requests.

Only 418 copies eh?  I suppose that means people would all have to get in pretty fast!  I’ll take a pdf though if it’s available.  (I’m not proud.)

"Norma Joy is open for the wielding of The Big Stick."

Beating time,
Norma N Joy Conquest

Ok. I will send a copy to lashtal then.
All proceeds of imaginary Thelemic dollars should go to this site though.
I suggest a starting point of 0=2 Thelemic dollars, then 22 Thelemic dollars, 31 Thelemic dollars etc as the PDF becomes more rare.
Or a buy now price for 777 Thelemic dollars.
How lashtal decides to spend these imaginary Thelemic dollars is at the webmasters discretion.

Oh Jamie...thumbs are a twitching heh? Well get that big stick out and lay one across those quivering ass cheeks then! Ha! No! Only joking!

I just found it ironic that the one review that was not so much about the book, as it was about the reviewer, was also the same person who brought us the mind blistering debacle of last year. It goes towards explaining a lot? At least to my convoluted way of thinking. But then none of it really matters after all. I just still have Nashville stuck in my craw and a loathing of self posturing authority of any type. Come to think of it, might be why we got off to a sort of rough start when you manifested as the portly schoolmarm taking me to task for spelling?

Oh well....back to swimming in the puddle of delusion.

For some reason or another, this came to mind:

(It's got high volume, as an eardrum caution)
