• Welcome!

    The purpose of this site is to aquaint you with our imprint and to tell you about the books we sell. In an excess of reticence, perhaps, we keep the commercial pitch behind the green tabs above. Using them you can learn about us, our products, and other matters.

    What you see in front of you is our blog—a free-wheeling discussion about books, reading, literature, language, and much else likely to interest our customers—people who read books. Please comment and participate.

    And we'd really love it if you would buy our books.

Seeds of Possible Futures

If you turn away from the picture of reality presented by the Media (technology, power, politics, terrorism, and mega-economies), you discover that modern life teems with a kind of organic life of its own. Having participated in ConFusion, a science fiction and fantasy convention, we met people there whose next venue is:

This convention defines itself (on its website here) as:

[A] convention of the many mystical spiritual paths and faiths who desire to teach each other and promote fellowship among all esoteric traditions.

Since 1995, this 4-day event has brought together over 100 classes and rituals presented by local instructors, internationally renowned guest speakers and authors. Along with workshops, ConVocation offers over 40 tables of merchandise in our Merchant Room, an Art Show and the largest indoor Drum Circle in the Midwest.

In our 16th annual event, held February 18-21, 2010, our theme will focus on the Tower Tarot card. Our theme is Surviving the Storm. Join us as we discover what gifts will emerge during emergencies and strengthen both our practical and magickal survival skills.

Are those attending ConVocation potential readers of our current trilogy on offer? Yes! And for various reasons. Symphony in Ghulf Major is an exploration of the future, and part of that future, no doubt, will be shaped by New Age groups such as those who’ll gather at this upcoming convention. The trilogy is science fiction. It’s also a Goddess tale. Yes. It moves from an age like ours into quite strange future times. As for the program at ConVocation 2010, it promises to offer much richer content in its 100 classes than ConFusion did. The magical and spiritual may foreshadow the future more accurately than a mixture of science and vampires. Attendance may also be larger. But we shall see.

We were too late to secure ourselves a spot as official sellers, but we expect to attend in order to learn. If you’re into imagining the future, it behooves you to look at its seeds in the present. We also sympathize with the theme ConVocation has chosen this year. A storm is surely building all around us…
