Last year Wordsworth publishing brought out a big but cheap collection of all Aleister Crowley's short fiction except the Simon If series. It has now filled that abyss by bringing out, in March 2012, those detective stories. www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/1840226781/ref=redir_mdp_mobile?redirect=true&ref_=as_li_ss_tl&tag=lashtal0c&linkCode=as2&camp=1634&creative=19450&creativeASIN=1840226781 I like Crowley as a mystical writer. I also quite like some of his poetry. His fiction I think is a bit garbage. But the best thing about a short story is that it is short. There are a lot of good ideas in the stories. He wrote, though, as fast as clever people read, and it shows at times. Like the collection The Drug & Other Stories this will sell at about two euro, about the price of a pair of diamond earrings from HJ Samuel, so what's not to like?
A final oddity. Wordsworth have published thousands of books but AC is the only author who appears on the cover!

The Ancient: sbs59: Were you suspended for non payment of dues? if so, square up and petition the lodge for a restatement vote. If your dues are current, your still a member. In this case, it is all about the Benjamins.
