say, Eresh, how did you like Lovecraft?
[snapback]7063[/snapback]

heya Markus I love it :D!

H.P. Lovecraft is a must. I used to like Poe, but I think Lovecraft kicks his butt. If you read some of his stories you can tell that lots of them were inspired in the occult, for example "The Call of Cthulhu". So far the stories I have read show a very mature way of presenting horror tales, which is what I like so much.

If you like Therion you must read this guy, seriously!

Done. Demian read! I won't comment it until Eresh will say she'd finished it too.

An incredibly interessant book, I have to say; I couldn't keep eyes away of it in the last pages. Not a plain book, but it needs an interpretation, to think about it. Abraxas, some thoughts related to esoterics, to magics, to the power of humanity and every man or woman as an individual, to dreams... really very Therion related  :evil:

Eresh: READ IT AND FINISH THE BOOK!!!!  :angry:

Hi folks,

the latest book I devoured is "Kelwitts Stern" by Andreas Eschbach. I read the book in German, and the title translates as "Kelwitt's Star".

This book has it all: A walking teenage dolphin from outer space, speaking with a Swabian accent. A paranoid intelligence agent who finally does find something. An official study considering the effects of supersonic radish seeds on jet fighters. Weird alien sex. It's all in there! And strange as it may sound: Everything Eschbach describes here seems totally plausible. Assuming that ETs exist and that interstellar space travel is possible, this book is absolutely realistic!

Eschbach might well be the best science-fiction author alive. He's a great story-teller who captivates you and won't let you go before the last page. Another of his strengths is to view very common things from uncommon angles. In "Kelwitts Stern" he shows you your own every-day surroundings through the eyes of a space alien.

This book is enthralling, dead funny and even profound. It's such a great book that I just had to present it to you. I was about to open a thread for non-Therion-related reading in the Voids, but then the book took such a deeply Gnostic turn that I can point to "Voyage of Gurdijeff" and say: These two share a basic idea.

I don't know whether translations of this book are available. But if so, try to get a copy, and otherwise learn German!

Cheers!

Markus

A walking dolphin from outer space? :o
that reminds me of the Dogon definition of the Nommo.
Acording to the Dogon tribe, the Nommo were amphibious beings sent to Earth from the Sirius Star system (Sirius B = Po Tolo) for the benefit of humankind. Almost like the Sumerian Anunnaki.

if you want to find more about this here's a link.

The Dogon Tribe & The Nommo


I also recommend Aleister Crowley's "Magick in Theory and Practise", there's a lot of Therion stuff in there (Therion, Babalon & The Beast, Typhon, To Meta Ohpion, etc...)
For those who are interested in this book here it is:
Magick in Theory & Practise


Cheers!

Well I get into the work of Swedberg (Swedenborg) due to Therions cool "dreams of swedenborg".
He was a very very interesting man and did a lot of great work

Ey Blake, good to read you again here!  :w00t:

Changing the subject... now I'm reading "Siddharta", from Hermann Hesse (40 pages and I finish it); it's not Therion related, but now I can understand a bit better "Demian". I recommend it a lot!!

When I'll finish it I'll tell more  :ph34r:

I wonder... have you ever read Umberto Eco's The pendulum of Foucault? (I don't know the English title) It's the last book I've finished and it's about the templars (I hope the name is right and you understand me). It's like the Dragon Rouge, and the book is full of names and things that are present in Therion lyrics, too. It's a little hard to read, but I couldn't put it down.

I've recently readen The Third Eye, Lobsang Rampa.

It's supposed it's written by a Tibetan lama who had to travel out of his territory, although I've read that perhaps it's not true, and the writer is an occidental guy. When I'll recover internet at home I'll study this matter more carefully, but even so... whoever the author is, I think this book can be very interessant for people interested in the power of the mind and meditation. Perhaps I'll talk more about this book... when I wouldn't have to take care my boss is not spying me!  :ninja:  :lol3:

Hey Luthy!
Thanks for bringing Rampa out! I've read a couple of his books some....12? years ago and I barely remember something. I think the guy was European... English or something, and then he migrated to Tibet where he became a Lama. If i remember well, he does give a few good clues about meditation and the road to wisdom. However' I'll have to give another read to those books to tell you more.

Right now I'm reading this:

http://www.ciao.co.uk/World_s_End_Mark_Chadbourn__5096317

I'm reading it because it's one of the books I must review (I'm a professional reader, for those who still don't know it). It talks about ancient gods (and monsters) coming back to the 21st century London. It's a fantasy/horror (more fantasy, in fact) placed in nowadays. Well... what does it has to do with Therion? That today I've read that someone wants to come to chase poor humans: The Wild Hunt. Besides it's one of my fav songs, now I will know something more about it... although I suppose very few of the readen will come from real tradition  :lol3:

Well, whatever it will be, now I'm more keen to read the novel. I'll tell you what I think of it... when I'll have the following 350 pages readen! (out of 555  :afaid: ).

there is two books with a lot of hidden content that are a must, but you really need to be very open minded and read between lines to fully understand. the books are "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"  and "Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There". they are labeled as childrens book, but they are very deep.
others "must": "Thus Spoke Zarathustra" by Friedrich Nietzsche; and some of Aleister Crowley`s works: "Book of the Law" (Liber Legis), "Book of Lies" and "The Sword of Songs".
