    Has anyone heard of this book, or better yet, read it?

    Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on it…

    ‘This book sets out to explain what Kenneth Grant’s cosmic vision is really about. We know that American writer H.P. Lovecraft had no mystic pretensions, though he did say the dream that inspired the short story Nyarlathotep “might have been prophetic”. Grant made much use of Lovecraft’s work, using it to reformulate the ideal of Thelema. The book features seventeen full colour Surrealist paintings that were created as part of this unique project. Also included are three complete short stories by Lovecraft: Nyarlathotep, The Crawling Chaos, and The Haunter of the Dark, plus a reconstruction of the Lovecraftian Necronomicon.’

    I’ve not read this particular work yet. I have though read much of Oliver St. John’s work over the years, and always find it interesting.
