Well not reading them yet, but they are on the way.
A note on the last book: "The Mystery Method," it's only for the study of human nature, sociology, and psychology. Yep, that's the ticket, it's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Where did you find this translation? Have owned three copies of this book and they were always: "Hagakure" Yamamoto Tsunetomo.

The Path to Power: The Years of Lyndon Johnson

Part one of a trilogy by Robert Caro. It's based on LBJ's early life, years in the house, and the Senate. It comes highly recommended.

Currently-


Politics - aristotle
The Prince - machiavelli

Aristotles book seem pretty good but also a dry read which gets boring sometimes. But his thoughts make a lot of sense.

As for the Prince, it is a great book. I enjoy this one a lot. Although I do find the principles he sets forth in the book are a little out dated.

I've just finished reading 'Without Conscience- Charles Manson, In His Own Words" as told to Nuel Emmons.

Pretty disturbing, but provided a clearer picture of who the man is behind the monster -not to mention leaving me with the distasteful mental picture of Squeaky Fromme getting it on with George Spahn....

I've just started 'The Heroin Diaries' by Nikki Sixx.

Pretty interesting so far, but time will tell.

While awaiting my books on order, I've been re-reading the sci-fi novel, "The Demoilished Man," by Alfred Bester, about a man who decides to commit murder in a future society where telepaths monitor the citizenry.

The Outsider by Colin Wilson.

Very stimulating and eye opening book which looks at "the Outsider problem" in society through many real and literary figures. Definitely worth the read.

Still need to set some time aside to finish it up.

From what I understand the correct name for the writings is "Hakagure", my copy says "Based on the Hakagure" as it is a translation from the original.

I am currently reading the Long Hard Road out of Hell by Marilyn Manson

Marilyn Manson is one artist I listen to a lot so I thought I would just read his book. So far it's pretty interesting how his life was.

But I wouldn't say it is an exciting book

I'm presently reading:

The King in Yellow by Robert W. Chambers

Admittedly I almost had to sleep with the light on! Almost needless to say that my main interest is in those stories which use The King in Yellow mythos as a theme. In terms of the subtle way it embeds itself in the mind and the ways in which it allows the imagination to snowball, I suspect that it produced the exact Magick effect that Chambers had in mind.

Lucifer and Prometheus by R. J. Zwi Werblowsky

A comparative literary analysis focusing on Milton's Lucifer and Byron's Prometheus. The introduction by Jung is interesting (not quite as interesting is the authors finger wagging against cosmic rebellion) and if you are a fan of Paradise Lost and/or Prometheus Unbound you may get something out of it, but on a whole there are better things to read.

Future reading....

Shattered Glass by Elaine Bergstrom

The Vampire Lestat and Queen of The Damned by Anne Rice

Interview with the Vampire ranks as one of my favourite novels though I won't hold my breath with it's sequels.

"The Occult" by Colin Wilson

General overview of basic occult concepts and a history of magic. Pretty good read, but occasionally sprinkled with parapsychology bullshit here and there.

=======


Everything HP Lovecraft Ever Wrote


Been workin' on ol' Howard for a year. Got all his famous stories down, so now I'm wrapping up the loose ends and tracking down his poetry.

================

King in Yellow - RW Chambers

FUCK YEAH HASTUR! Only just started the other day, but it's pretty badass.

================

Random Chaos-Magick Shit

I don't know what to say, really.

================

Lucretius - On the Nature of Things

This guy is awesome. He really is.

The King in Yellow by Robert W. Chambers

Why have I never heard of this? It sounds like it would be right up my alley.


Lucifer and Prometheus by R. J. Zwi Werblowsky

I'll have to track this one down. FYI, Prometheus Unbound was by Shelley. You're English, too, so you should know that. Tsk, tsk, tsk. ;\)

If you're using the movies as the basis for your judgement, you will be missing out on some of the greatest vampire fiction ever written, at least in the 20th century. I'm partial to The Vampire Lestat, Queen of the Damned, and Memnoch the Devil. Honestly, you can't go wrong with these books. They absolutely butchered the story for the second movie; it was the biggest mistake to try and cram two books' worth of material into one movie. It never had a chance.
