Blind Spot: A Gnostic Tale of the Soul s Journey Into Time and the Struggle to Return to the One by Joan d’Arc – The automatic doors of the SpeedyMart flew open with a swoosh. Out into the dense fever of a dog day afternoon stepped Adam Kadmon. His ass hit the seat of his beat-up Honda just as a diminutive creature resembling a gargoyle climbed into an eyeball-shaped sidecar attached to his rear passenger door. Kadmon checked over his right shoulder and saw not the bulging cranium of his mighty demon brother but the vacant blackness of the blind spot. . . . .
Disco Volante by Paul Laffoley – I saw my first foreign film in 1951. It was not at The Telepix, The Translux, or The Brattle Theatre, but at Boston s widest screen of the day, The RKO Keith Memorial Theatre on Tremont Street, halfway between Park and Boylston. The director was not Victorrio Desica, Fritz Lang, Jean Cocteau, or Ingmar Bergman, but an American, Robert Wise, a Virgo born on September 10, 1914. What I am referring to is the classic flying saucer movie of the atomic age, The Day the Earth Stood Still, direct from the film studios of 20th Century Fox. . . .
The Adventures of Tina-Bob in Cyberspace by Joan d Arc – Down the spiral staircase of the law library sashayed the svelte V-Joy Minot in size 7 brown pumps circa 1940. Going to lunch now, she whispered to the suits in the library, who winced at her shabby 1938 raccoon coat with missing buttons. Stepping out onto the sidewalk on K Street, Washington, DC, a triangulated crossbreeze nearly blasted off the 1959 Jackie-O pillbox pinned to her red frightwig. What kind of animal is that coat made of? asked her lunch date, Miss Kimmee. Something that would’ve died by now anyway, replied Vicarious Joy. . . .
Real Black Magick Ancient Roots of Deception by Eugenia Macer-Story – Instances of real black magick are often attributed to mundane or accidental causes, because the actual lore and practice of the system being utilized is not included in the canon of spell books and scholarly coded documents on metaphysics or natural history. The deceptive practices of dark power magick learned from cause/effect experimentation by a lone practitioner can also include membership in an overt gang, seldom in a fully secret society. . .
The Twelfth Thunder: Beyond the Digital Environment of Finnegans Wake by Robert Guffey – Before Marshall McLuhan became the High Priest of Popcult and the Metaphysician of the Media, as Playboy christened him in 1969, he was foremost a critic immersed in the world of letters and the traditional arts. In 1969, after his transformation into a media guru, McGraw-Hill published a collection of his early literary criticism under the title The Interior Landscape. Prima facie, one finds little in these essays that hint at the freewheeling, satirical media analysis to come. It is indeed there lurking … –PublisherOn My Tracks by Alec K. Redfearn – Today, I embark on a month-long tour of Europe with one of my favorite musicians, Micah Blue Smaldone of Portland Maine. We start in Brussels and end in Athens. I plan on surviving this one. I will probably sleep in a pigeonshit-drenched gutter where I will be abducted. My organs will be harvested and sold to feed someone s opium habit… That’s what they do to yank vagrants, right? . . .
The Motionless Movement by Phill Weber – Movement is the Disease of the Universe. Thus begins the Manifesto of Le Mouvement Immobile (The Motionless Movement), a tiny and short-lived collective of literary intellectuals founded in Paris in 1900. Gerard Duprey, the manifesto s author, broadens this premise, declaring that the worm at the core of existence is our willingness to accept that things happen. Having a prescient understanding of the theories of Rudolf Clausius and a thoughtfully, albeit erroneously, developed notion of entropy, Monsieur Duprey was convinced that a misplaced trust in human progress, and the expenditure of energy that resulted from entertaining this notion, needlessly accelerated our passage towards a condition he called le fin du jeu, or the end of the game, a static state analogous to the heat-death of the universe. . .
Hot Lunch by James Quigley – I’m digging through a box that I haven t looked through since I took it out of my father’s attic in 1998. It’s filled with stuff from my first year of Junior High School. My yearbook, old drawings, a few comic books, and a video tape with the words HOT LUNCH scribbled in my adolescent handwriting. I always hated returning to school from any vacation. Christmas 1986 was cold and wet, and I had spent most of it watching Monty Python videos and reading through a stack of old Powerman and Iron Fist comics that I scored at the flea market last summer. My first day back was in a panic, … Brian Pope was dead . . . .
Subprime Girl by Len Bracken – After winning a war with cancer she found herself at the Chateau Marmont in Beverly Hills. Memories of being in the hospital bed dissolved in her fourth glass of white wine, which she intended to be her last for now. … Diane went at the woman, the sister of a celebrity who was quite well known, in large strides and with tightly clenched fists from across the room. Red blurs flashed by in her peripheral vision from the carpet, curtains, booths, and torrid faces of other patrons. The movement was brusque and her victim noticed it. Dark eyes glared up from a slab of rare tuna in alarm. . . .
Making Sense of Mind Control and No-Touch Torture by Cheryl Welsh – After the horrific pictures of prisoners being tortured at Abu Ghraib were displayed in front pages of newspapers around the world, the United States maintained that the U.S. government does not torture; Abu Ghraib was about a few bad officers. Evidence now proves that CIA no touch torture and worse were ordered by the executive branch and approved by top military officers. Surprisingly this scandal has much in common with another national security issue, neuroweapons, commonly referred to as mind control. The field of neuroethics should begin now, according to bioethicist Dr. Jonathan Moreno in his 2006 book Mind Wars, Brain Research and National Defense. Most neuroscientists agree that advanced neuroweapons are over a half century away but the ethics of the new weapons need more planning than occurred for the atomic bomb… –Publisher
R is for Ruthless: Robert F. Kennedy and Otto Otepka by Joan Mellen – Beginning in 1957, Otto F. Otepka served as Deputy Director of the State Department Office of Security. This meant that Otepka was in charge of granting security clearances for all State Department personnel. A cadre of people worked under his supervision. From this position of considerable responsibility, Otepka was plunged into a nightmare universe of harassment and surveillance. Otepka was reassigned and removed to a position from which he could no longer reveal inconvenient truths. This is an extraordinary tale of a career government officer being framed from within the government, his only sin the scrupulous manner in which he performed his duties. . . .
St. Germain s Top Secret Code Revealed: The Triangle Book of St. Germain by Iona Miller – St. Germain had a Secret. That secret became a legacy of Manly Palmer Hall and his Philosophic Research Society (PRS). It was his supreme treasure which he kept safely hidden in his vault. The two parchment cipher texts now reside in the Getty Research Institute, likewise buried deep in their library vaults. This wisest adept in Europe reserved his greatest gift for his wisest companions. He recorded it in his legendary The Triangle Book, and apparently made copies for his closest circle of initiates. . . .
Hocus Pocus: The Magical Power of Catholic Priests by Tracy R. Twyman – According to the Gospels, Jesus was endowed with a number of supernatural abilities, as evidenced by his many miracles. These included healing the sick, casting out demons, and raising the dead, as well as tricks like multiplying the loaves and the fishes, turning water into wine, and calming the stormy sea. This he did through the command of the so-called Holy Spirit. This power is otherwise called in the Gospels his virtue . . .
Remote Beam Harassment by Beth Goobie – Remote beam harassment comes in many forms and serves multiple purposes. Commonly used by cults to enforce obedience, it can also be employed to demoralize or discredit activists and business colleagues /competitors, or by a landlord who wants to convince a tenant to move out. Many of these beams can be operated through hand-held devices that fit into a person’s pocket. This technology has been used on me by individuals close by …
Stages Of Health: The Food Factor by Carolyn Dean M.D., N.D. – When access to food involved hunting and gathering and basic cultivation, presumably we were ingesting plant foods from nutrient rich soil and animals that were exposed to the same nutritious plants. That soil was also rich in bacteria and fungi, the ones that transform rock minerals into a particle size that plants can utilize. Plants have their own alchemy and can transform these minerals into a protein-mineral complex that a healthy body is able to digest into the correct size to swim through the nutrient channels in our body s cells. . . . You can t fit a size 7 foot into a size 5 shoe, and in the same way, you can t fit a milligram or even a micron-sized mineral into an angstrom-sized mineral channel. . . .
An Artificially Sweetened Tale by Cori Brackett – In Tucson, Arizona, it is almost always hot. My city is the one red spot on the weather map in summertime, when the rest of the nation is yellow or green, with perhaps a touch of orange. Therefore, as was typical, it was a mild and sunny afternoon in February when I received the telephone call that would forever alter the course of my life. Good afternoon, Sound and Fury. This is Cori. . . . Hi Cori. I’m afraid the test results came in from your MRI. It looks like it’s multiple sclerosis. . . –Publisher
