Summary of the week ending Jan 25th, 2014

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending January 25th, 2014.


Unicursal WINTER SPRING Poster

This Unicursal WINTER SPRING Poster is another piece of helpful propaganda from the Ministry of Information, a take on the original trilogy of British posters from WWII combined with a quote from Aleister Crowley’s pseudonymous article Ratan Devi: Indian Singer in Vanity Fair, 1916.


Magick, Music and Ritual 10 has been indefinitely postponed. There will be no quarterly releases from the project in 2014. If there’s interest, I may try for a single anthology release in 2014, moving to an annual release schedule, and hope the project is able to continue in that fashion. If there’s not sufficient interest in participating in the creation of an annual anthology this year, then the project will end.

So, if you’ve enjoyed these anthology albums as much as I have, then check out all the previously released anthology albums, consider participating when the next call for submissions is posted, and let people you know, who may be interested in these albums, know about the project.

If you really want to let me know that you want to project to continue, consider picking up the digital download of one or more of these anthology albums; or grab the special offer on the complete 2011-2013 collection which includes all 9 released anthology albums.


In addition to the Hermetic Library itself, do consider checking out the many ways you can participate in the work of the library, and ways you can become a supporter. Becoming a supporter, with either a one-time or recurring donation, will help the library pay hosting costs necessary to stay online, expand the collection, and develop other projects such as perhaps an actual Reading Room. In addition to feeling good about helping the library, becoming a supporter means you will be included in things such as occasional unannounced Postal Potlatch mailings as well as other occasional fun such as receiving gratis download codes for each new Hermetic Library Album and more!


You may also be interested in the other blogs in the Hrmtc Underground network, including Iconomancy, Pilgrimage to Far-Distant Countries, Thelema and the Libri of Aleister Crowley, and De Profundis.

Other things you may wish to gander at are the opportunity to help create shared wisdom about the materials collected at the library at the Hermeneuticon Wiki and the web hosting services offered by the Hermetic Library at Hermetic Hosting.
