A very nice guy, too, and his actual practical personal experience with the topics upon which he comments here is clearly evident. Can't beat that, as far as qualifications go. 🙂

N.O.X., Paul and Cam-

Thank you all for your extremely kind words. I can only express that I've been extremely privileged to be part of this site on a nigh-daily basis since I registered and am very glad that there are people who are enjoying the art and writing. I have several things in the works that I'm quite excited about and am deeply appreciative to those who have found enough value therein to publish and promote them.

And, for the record, I, too, am waiting for that day when the approaching Monolith shall emerge into Space & Time. 🙂

93,

Kyle

Hi all, By some quirk of the aethyrs, Treadwell's this week has quite a few of the titles mentioned in this thread - mostly fine condition, secondhand. Liber Niger Legionis: Grimoire of Pharaon, Waratah III, Azoetia (Green and Deluxe), Voudon Gnostic Workbook, OTO Rituals and Sex Magick, along with a smattering of Kenneth Grant and Ixaxaar Press ---oh, and an Askin Press folio edition of John Dee's True and Faithful Relation. I don't normally post up about stuff, but it's been such an extraordinary week's arrivals I just had to say something! Christina

I'm about fed up with the $75 to $300 Talismanic Books market. Everytime I walk into the occult bookstore and say whats new the gentleman shows me all these outrageously priced books from Fulgar and Scarlett Imprint and really for those prices, I JUST DON'T CARE! Where are the $15 paperbacks with exciting new material? Better yet, point me to the used books section.
The only Talismanic book I wish to own is my own personal hand bound grimoire.

Christina,

I actually dreamed about Treadwells last night! I wish I was actually there to revel in your recent book acquisitions . . .

All best,

William

Scarlet Imprint will begin printing paperbacks starting with Volume II of the Encyclopaedia Goetica by Jake Straton-Kent. They are describing the paperbacks as affordable and "unpretentious editions to read in a cafe and spill coffee over".

That's the only book that everyone should want to own.

Ooh, I'd love to know other people's lists. Here's mine...

A stunning account imagining 24 hours in Crowley's life, and exploring the sexual hypocrisy of the early 20th century - the final day in the life of a gay military man whom Crowley met just before his suicide. Based on an entry in the Confessions. . Sceptre Press

Paul Weston, Avalonian Aeon: From Glastonbury to 2012, A Personal Occult Odyssey. A wild, wacky and thought-provoking ride with magician, psychic quester and psychedeliac - autobiographical and more. Avalonian Aeon Press

Mythogeography: A User's Handbook for Walking Out on the Spectacle... Takes the Voudoo drift to a new level. The book itself is mind-altering. Triarchy Press.

All are paperback. 😀

Christina,"Tantric Thelema", surely is a recommendation, I have not yet read it, but it looks interesting, and is very scholarly related to both Thelema and Buddhism, elsewhere there's a thread on it here at LAShTAL, the book and it's author should have had more attention, certainly here on LAShTAL. 'Twas my intention to post more about the book here but the reason why I didn't was that I don't have read it completely, but surely the book is a recommendation!

There's out the first complete translation of the Latin "Picatrix" by Christopher Warnock and John Michael Greer with Renaissance Astrology, I think it of interest!

An employee of the ever-popular Bodhi Tree bookstore on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles - well, actually in "West Hollywood," once confided to Frater Estar that their "most often stolen" books were authored by Aleister Crowley. This is probably the reason that his works were long-ago removed from the shelves and thereafter were always kept on display within a locked class cabinet. You could see, but not touch without supervision by someone who possessed The Key to the Mysteries.

They say: "[The owners], who opened the Bodhi Tree in July of 1970, are going to retire after 40 years. The world of books and bookstores is changing dramatically to the detriment of the independent retailer. The bookstore and its' owners are gracefully, but definitely, aging. This, along with the economy of the times, and the technological changes in publishing prodded us to make the decision we did.

"We have entered an agreement to sell the properties and the buildings of the Bodhi Tree Bookstore. We plan to be open for business as usual until the fall of 2011. During this time we will see what can be done to keep the store's material, which we have valued for so long, available to the public. A philosopher-entrepreneur may come along to relocate and carry-on, there are possibilities and already, serious inquiries."

Their stock, which seemingly includes most metaphysical-spiritual items available under the Sun, is also available online. Bibliophiles in Southern California (and online) may wish to consult them within the next year: http://www.bodhitree.com /"> http://www.bodhitree.com/ (69 books currently available in their search engine under "Crowley").

Ah, Los Angeles! The original home of Solar Lodge (the outlaws of Arcania) and many kleptoCrowleymaniacs.
