Misty [Mar. 19th, 2015|01:59 pm]
Tony Grist
The north of England was misty. We visited friends and relatives and spent a couple of nights in a very nice country hotel in Shropshire. I feel a little ghostly revisiting the north west. We no longer have a home there and the people we know there are all moving on with their lives.

I've been reading Phil Baker's biography of Austin Osman Spare. Spare was a lovable geezer and dirty old man who practised occultism, told porkies, lived in squalor and ought to be recognised as one of the great artists of the 20th century but isn't.

I know Grant through his contributions to Man, Myth and Magic.

I've been refreshing my memory by reading a very funny review of one of his books by Alan Moore.

Man, Myth and Magic -- I had the first volume of that growing up. Spent endless hours pouring over it, but never knew that Grant was a contributor. I'm not sure where I began with Grant. Aleister Crowley and the Hidden God, I suspect.

Moore wrote a review? I bet that would be funny indeed. I've bashed Grant many times, but don't recall whether I've done it in print. Alan Moore is sort of my brush with greatness, if you could call it that. He's friends with Joel Biroco, with whom I collaborated on a publication some years back and to which Alan also contributed.
