  • Blazing Star Oasis has developed a new website dedicated to preserving the legacy of Grady L. McMurtry, also known as Hymenaeus Alpha 777. The Grady McMurtry Project includes many of Grady’s poems and other writings in the Thelema Lodge Calendar from 1986-2004.
  • U.S. Grand Lodge has published the proceedings from NOTOCON 8, entitled Manifest Thy Glory. Like the previous two NOTOCON books, this contains written versions of many of the lectures offered at the biennial national conference. This volume from the 2011 conference includes papers by several contributors to this podcast.
  • A new book by Aleister Crowley biographer Tobias Churton, now available for pre-order, explores Crowley’s time in Berlin from 1930-1932. This book will surely be of interest to anyone who enjoys reading about Aleister Crowley’s life, and perhaps especially for those interested in his activities as a spy for the Allies in this important time in Germany’s history.
