Aquarian Phoenix

I am currently engaged in writing Aquarian Phoenix, the follow-up companion volume to Avalonian Aeon. It is part of my creative process to create the covers for my books before they are finished in order to get a feeling that they are already essentially complete in hyperspace and I just have to download them into 3D manifestation. It is a profound luxury to be able to engage the services of Glastonbury-based artist Yuri Leitch to execute my designs.

The book will include a dizzying wide spectrum of esoteric subject matter including the background behind the writing of a number of books by historical mysteries researcher Andrew Collins. His ground-breaking work on the fallen angels emerged from visionary experiences including material concerning the Nephilim in Britain (and I don’t mean the band), Millenial
fever, crop circles, the Giza plateau and the search for the Hall of Records, Quetzalcoatl and the Harmonic Convergence, X Files conspiracism and UFOlogy, Shambhala, Atlantis, Glastonbury and its alleged terrestrial zodiac, the Circle of Perpetual Choirs, the theme of the artist as magician, and a whole bunch more of contentious topics are placed in a meta-perspective through comparative research and the stories of my personal experiences.

The writing process is an intense one. This is why my blog posts here have been few in number so far. Expect to see manifestation this summer. Following that a lot more will be going on here.

In the meantime, I do have some more radio interviews lined up that I will publicise here as they happen.

Interview on Secret Sun Radio Mystery Hour

I have recently spoken at some length on a variety of esoteric topics on Christopher Knowles Secret Sun Radio Mystery Hour.
Listen to it here.
The main topic is the effect of landscape on consciousness but Robert Graves, John Cowper Powys, Crowley, Andrew Collins, and Psychic Questing all get covered and plenty more besides.
