Kenneth Grant Books
I couldn't figure out if this should go in Requests, Stuff, the Kenneth Grant section or For Sale and Wanted... so I apologize if this is the wrong place but:
I have always wanted to read some of Kenneth Grants books. The controversy surrounding him and his Typhonian Order has always interested me and instead of choosing a side based on someone else's opinion I would like to read some of his work for myself to formulate a true understanding. The problem is, they have been, at least for the past few years that i've been looking, very expensive.
A few months ago my old room mate told me that he found a place online where they re-issued some of his works and they were reasonably priced. When I asked him what site he found them... he wouldn't tell me. He also didn't want me to borrow them (seeing as how they were rare...)
Does anybody happen to know a place where these books have been re-issued? Or where they are not super expensive?
Trust me, i have tried Amazon, Google, etc.
Thanks in advance.

Would you honestly use the word 'mate' to describe them?
On the positive side, Starfire Publishing is bring out the whole set of the Typhonian trilogies - see their website. http://www.starfirepublishing.co.uk/
They are up to Hecarte's Fountain right now.
Also sign up for Midian Books' newsletter. THey keep posting great deals for second hand Grant books. A couple months ago my jaw dropped upon seeing their prices, made me wish I hadn't already completed the trilogies. Here's their link: http://www.midianbooks.co.uk under secondhand books, Crowley & related.
I just checked their site and don't presently see any spectacular deals but keep checking.
These look quite reasonably priced (if still available from Midian):

I did pick up a Cults of the Shadow, Muller 1975 in great condition - on ebay - for 21.00 inc postage UK pounds about 2 weeks ago. So there are good deals to be had.
Thank you all.
Pretty sure they posted a bunch that were in the 30 - 40 pound range earlier this year.
Nice catch with that Cults of the Shadow!
Most of the second-hand books in the Midian listing reproduced above by Michael Clarke are more expensive than the republications available from Starfire Publishing. On the other hand, Hagbard, if you're located in Canada or the USA then Starfire books are distributed there by Holmes Publishing.
Yeah i found the link on the Starfire site. I look forward to my future readings!
