[tab] [content title="Description"]Before you delve into the massive tome that is 'The Ninth Arch', you will need to hold it up 'Against The Light' and the world of Clan Grant. Like a dark 'Alice in Wonderland', where instead of falling down the rabbit hole, you slide, instead, down slimy, fungoidal Tunnels of Set, 'Against The Light' contains a thorough going summation of what Kenneth Grant is all about; it is as if he is attempting to make cohesive his own idiosyncratic, personal myth. Clearly combining all of his influences, such as Blackwood, Machen, Crowley, Spare, Castaneda, Dali, and of course, Lovecraft, Grant weaves a relentless astral tale that concentrates the black elixir that we get smaller doses of in "Hecate's Fountain'. Time and Space are fully suspended here, where multiple dimensions, times, the living and the dead, dreams and extraterrestrial forces all meet in a ever-shifting world of ceaseless slippage, and interdimensional penetretion that are the tunnels of the qlipoth. This is the definitive Grant book next to 'The Ninth Arch', which would be less comprehensible without it. What more could you ask for? [/content] [content title="Content"] [/content] [content title="About the author"]Kenneth Grant (23 May 1924 – 15 January 2011) was an English ceremonial magician and advocate of the Thelemic religion. A poet, novelist, and writer, he founded his own Thelemic organisation, the Typhonian Ordo Templi Orientis—later renamed the Typhonian Order—with his wife Steffi Grant. Born in Ilford, Essex, Grant developed an interest in occultism and Asian religion during his teenage years. After service with the British Army during the Second World War, he returned to Britain and became the personal secretary of Aleister Crowley, the ceremonial magician who had founded Thelema in 1904. Crowley instructed Grant in his esoteric practices and initiated him into his own occult order, the Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.). When Crowley died in 1947, Grant was seen as his heir apparent in Britain, and was appointed as such by the American head of the O.T.O., Karl Germer. In 1949, Grant befriended the occult artist Austin Osman Spare, and in ensuing years helped to publicise Spare's artwork through a series of publications. [/content] [/tab]
