New Edition of S.S.O.T.B.M.E.
There are some books I must read in small doses, because the excitement of new ideas mingles with the despair of ever writing anything as groundbreaking.
The new and improved S.S.O.T.B.M.E. is such a book — one of those that makes me wish I had written it, because if I had, maybe my views on science and magic would be a bit clearer. While I don’t like the emphasis on aeonics in one chapter — every time someone brings up talk of “aeons” my eyelids feel heavy — and I think it could be a bit clearer for those without an advanced background in postmodern theory, it’s a miracle between two pieces of cardboard.
My answer to a lot of magical-type question could be “read S.S.O.T.B.M.E.”
