Summary of the week ending Dec 29, 2012

This last week I worked on various improvements to the Hermetic Library. I had conversations via email, social media and others with various people about the collections at the library. I posted and shared a variety of things via Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Tumblr, Pilgrimage to Far-Distant Countries, Thelema and the Libri of Aleister Crowley, and elsewhere.

I want to remind you about to check out the Hermetic Library Anthology Album call for Winter 2013 submissions, the call for proposals for 2013 anthology album artwork and design, and the upcoming The Hermetic Library Anthology Journal.

The deadline for submissions to the Hermetic Library Album for Winter 2013 is only two weeks away, so if you want to participate contact me soon! And, consider contributing written and visual work to the upcoming Hermetic Library Journal. The Symposium section theme for Summer Solstice 2013 is Intolerance and Tolerance, so do also write something for this reader forum.
