I have added a new page, Visual Art, to The Grand Tangent. This page is located as a sub-category under the Works page.
The Visual Art page features, and will continue to feature, my art and illustrations.
As for my writing, it has been stalled in many ways, but it is moving in a few particular directions: I intend, this year (2023), to (1.) have Easy Noumenon: Early Poems[Revised Version] published online and as an e-book outside of Smashwords, where it’s currently featured, namely at Amazon via Kindle Direct Publishing; (2.) have Easy Noumenon: Early Poems [Revised Version] self-published in print—admittedly in a limited quantity, given financial constraints—(3.) have “Bugs” and a Few Other Stories re-published or re-released in its own revised version, as a self-published e-book; and (4.) have a new, small project I’ve complete, the chapbook The Waters (A Handful of Poems), released in print (also self-published) in a limited quantity.
This is the cover for my forthcoming chapbook, The Waters (A Handful of Poems):
I have had my self-published work of poetry (originally featured on Smashwords) Easy Noumenon: Early Poems (2016) updated and re-published on Smashwords as the revised Easy Noumenon: Early Poems[Revised Version]. The revised version allows for epub files of the chapbook to read better on e-readers and tablets.
In this post I’m linking a video I recently published to YouTube in which I read a selection of part 2 (“The Universe as We Seek To Make It”) of Aleister Crowley’s “An Essay Upon Number.” This “An Essay Upon Number” was included in Crowley’s The Temple of Solomon the King, which itself was included in the A∴A∴ periodical The Equinox, specifically Vol. I, No. 1. “An Essay Upon Number” was also included in Crowley’s 777 and Other Qabalistic Writings of Aleister Crowley.
I have posted to LOGOS! a link to a YouTube video I just published, wherein I read the chapter and essay “Barriers” from the book Introduction toMagic, Vol. I: Rituals and Practical Techniques for the Magus.
I wrote an essay on the question posed to initiates into the Independent Order of Odd Fellows regarding the supreme being. It was published in Heart in Hand: The Modern Odd Fellow’s Guide on November 5 of this year.
I’ve decided that new LOGOS! entries, posts on my blog LOGOS! (naturally), which have almost completely been reblogs or external references (transcripts of those references or re-published material) to essays I’ve written, will now appear here in or alongside updates.
In addition to updating this site with new LOGOS! entries, I’d also like to keep a rolling tab on the previous entries on that blog as well, featuring a list of links to them with each LOGOS!-related update. So, below you will find a list of all the posts in LOGOS! so far, from newest to oldest (2021-2018):
I recently had eight poems published in The Fictional Café online arts publication. All eight poems are featured on one page, under one link, and consist of (in order of appearance) “Amor Fati,” “Danny Didn’t Show,” “Hat City and the Mystery,” “One,” “Ward 9 (Hospital—Redux),” “Sanctum Sanctorum,” “I Have the Codes,” and “Poets and Rock Stars.”
