Book Review: The Spear Of Destiny

the librarian-spear-of-destiny.jpg
I don’t have a lot of cool images related to this book, so I’m going to mostly instead run pics from various pop-culture adaptations of the legend…like this one from “The Librarian: Quest For The Spear”

The Spear appeared to be some sort of magical medium of revelation for it brought the world of ideas into such close and living perspective that human imagination became more real than the world of sense.
–Trevor Ravenscroft, “The Spear Of Destiny”

The Spear Of Destiny by Trevor Ravenscrofta story about reincarnation, alchemy, evil sorcerers, secret societies, soulless doppelgängers, sex magick, possession by alien entities, Aztec peyote, the Akashic Record, questionable homeopathic practices, psychic vaginal ectoplasm, a sacred Christian relic that could rend the very fabric of time as we know it, and, yes, Nazis—is one of the most elaborate and utterly bizarre conspiracy meta-narratives you will ever encounter

Four months after he mysteriously disappeared from the Brazilian town of Acre, Bruno Borges is set to have one of the most anticipated book launches in the world.

On July 21, TAC – Theory of Absorption of Knowledge will be published by Borges’ family through Infinity Editorial and Marketing.

On Sale Now: The Matrix Control System of Philip K. Dick

matrix-control-system-of-philip-k-dickWell folks, I just received my copy of The Matrix Control System Of Philip K. Dick And The Paranormal Synchronicities of Timothy Green Beckley, and it looks gorgeous! If you are a Philip K. Dick fan and are looking for some rarer insights and info on the man—especially in regards to esotericism—this is the book to buy. (don’t let the photo fool you—the book is HUGE!)

I have two articles in there which are edited versions of PKD posts here—it’s the first time I’ve ever put this type of work in print (outside of my comic book series Beyond). And to have it alongside people like Beckley, Brad Steiger, Nick Redfern…I mean, I know I’ve written this here already, but: wow. Very cool.

I’ll do a longer write-up of this book at some point, but if you are interested in purchasing it you can do so at Amazon—either in digital or print—at this link!

“Waking Life,” the Movie That Got Me Hooked On Philip K. Dick

I was like, you know, he’s not really a psychic, you know I’m thinking to myself. And then suddenly I start floating, like levitating, up to the ceiling. And as I almost go through the roof, I’m like, “Okay, Mr. Psychic. I believe you. You’re a psychic. Put me down please.”
–Richard Linklater, “Waking Life”

The other day I was trying to trace where my Philip K. Dick “kick” started, and I remembered this scene from the 2001 film Waking Life. Of course, I had previously knew him as being the famous author of various science-fiction books, including that upon which the movie Blade Runner was based. But it’s funny how you can go through a whole life—or, for me, 4 years of college studying English Lit—and not really “connect” with an author.

That all changed after I saw this scene in Waking Life.

Book Review: Sinister Forces By Peter Levenda

sinister-forces-review.jpg

Politics and religion both are born of documents and of blood. And both documents and blood form the primary sources of the following investigation.
—Peter Levenda, “Sinister Forces Book One: The Nine”

It took me about two years to finish the three volumes of Peter Levenda’s Sinister Forces. Not because they were that long, but because he provides an incredible amount to process. For fans of esoteric, “fringe” history, this book is a must-have; though when you take out the musings on synchronicity and the occult, the series is pretty much straight, sourced history.

Levenda is an author I trust. And if you are going to take the slow-dive down the 100-story secret underground rabbit hole of American history that is being offered with a book like Sinister Forces, you need somebody you can trust. Anything else is Chapel Perilous-ville.
