Thanks; hope you enjoy it! BTW It takes Amazon a week or so to add the "Look Inside" feature to paperback edition pages. but if a work is also published as a Kindle ebook (as all of mine are), that feature is up immediately. So if you want a look at the Contents, Preface, Introduction (by Don Webb), and Chapter #1, just go to the Kindle link above.

Ho My God! This gave me such a big erection guys. I think my boner is almost as big as Dark Light 444's!

It's probably not as scholarly as David Myatt's autobiography though.

Mr. Aquino, can you buy Myatt's autobiography and give us your valued opinion on it?

I make no claims concerning your ding-dong, but there are some passages that will assuredly lengthen your leg! \:D

I have no interest in Mr. Myatt, so wouldn't be able to critique his book.

Not sure yet. I've completed all the books that were important to me before I croak, plus a few fun ones. But my vision continues to deteriorate: I can't read printed material any more, and was only able to do IlluminAnX & Ghost Rides on a brightly backlit screen. Even that is becoming difficult.

What I've wanted to do for a long time - and I'm not even certain it could be done - is a "serious/mature" Oz book with the atmosphere of Baum's original 13 (not the first one, Wonderful Wizard, which has left us with the unfortunate legacy of the Judy Garland film). JRRT took childish things like elves and wizards and remade them as "epic". I'd like to do that for Oz. But my eyes may nix it. We'll see [or not].

Yup, mine also arrived today. Indeed it looks very fun.

That would be very cool. I have always liked the whole peeking behind the curtain and seeing what really is instead of the bullshit that people want you to believe.

I'm about halfway through and enjoying it thoroughly... But!...I've suggested it before...Yup, I'm going to say it and pester you some more. I think, with all due respect,...We need (at least badly want) The COMPLETE Autobiography!... c,mon Sir! Crowley gave us the 'hag' and you have the time and what a cool project it would be for you!

Seriously, my personal opinion is that not writing it would leave your work here unfinished. I hope you decide to write it and share it. Also, consider this(and I'm sure you have): Crowley left us the 'hag' which we can use, for instance to counter-balance Symonds' 'The Great Beast.' Someone could and probably will write a biography of you. Can they tell your story better than you can? Will they be as factual and objective as you are? will...O.K. you get the picture lol. I'm thinking something say...the length of 'The Church of Satan by Michael A. Aquino' or at least 'War and Peace'

Whatever the case may be, I wish you the best and hope your health is on the upswing and you're feeling well. Thanks for another great book.

I just heard your interview with Solaris Blueraven. Loved it. It was from a while back. I hope you do more. If so, Please let us know here.

SHIT! this just popped in my head: What if Magus Peter H. Gilmore writes it!? What would we counterbalance it with? Think about it...

Iíd like to whole heartedly echo this sentiment. An autobiography would be perfect. I mean, youíre going to have to leave out the stuff you REALLY saw at Cheyenne Mountain, etc., but other than the really super top secret stuff, thereís no reason you canít put out one proper, unless, of course, Setian initiation prevents this kind of thing.

Iím not a car guy, so this is really kind of a quirky version of your history as far as Iím concerned, and about half way through, leaves no real whiff of who the man in black behind the wheel of all these different cars really is. Although, whoever he is, is a great writer, so you make even something as banal as cars (to me anyway) seem interesting....however, Iím thirsty for a real deal bio, Dr.

Do it! Let Ghost Rides be what it is.....a biography of one of your hobby passions.

As to "who's behind the wheel", I'd say that Don Webb nailed it as a mixture of Mr. Gasser & Spaceman Spiff. \:D

Thanks for the interest in a straightforward autobiography. The problem is one of sheer size. Envirion taking all 13 books I've written and trying to jam them into one, plus other "connecting stuff"! My publisher has a limit of 500 pages/volume, which is why both CoS & TOS are 2-volume works. Extreme Prejudice is an example of jamming as much as possible into 500 pages: 11-point type, minimal white space, oversize dimensions.

I also feel that the important stuff is not "me as a person" but any knowledge possibly useful to others from my experiences, ideas, philosophy, conclusions. This is what I have sought to make available after I've left the planet. I'm not interested in personal glorification or "cultism"; in fact I think that kind of thing just gets in the way of what's actually worthwhile.

Fair enough. Thanks for taking the time to respond, and keep those books coming.
