I am going to be a guest on The Science of Magic Radio Show hosted by Gwilda Wiyaka. The show is broadcast internationally through ‘X’ Zone Broadcast Network, Digital Satellite Network and their affiliates, the Mutual Broadcast Network and IPBN Radio Network.
It will be taped on June 29, 2016 at 1:00 PM EST and will be featured on The Science of Magic YouTube Channel : http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZHrFBoTPvJ4yE4P-sOQ and on the website: www.thescienceofmagic.net I will post links to the channel & website when they become available.
The host, Gwilda Wiyaka, is considered by most occult scholars as the foremost expert on the contemporary application of ancient shamantic principles. Gwilda is also a preceptor for the University of Colorado School of Medicine, where she provides instruction to medical doctors on the modern interface between shamanism and allopathic medicine for the University’s School of Medicine’s Complementary and Alternative Medicine Course.
I will be discussing my new book and I think, my interestingly revolutionary views on magickal practice, which disavow such outmoded, old-fashioned concepts such as the astral light, astral traveling, the aetheric reality, etc. I view magickal practice as something entirely rational; merely an advantageous utilization of the realities (unrealities?) of the probabilistic, Quantum Universe.
Near the end of summer, I am going to be a guest speaker at the Pagan Pride Convention in Detroit, Michigan, August 13, 2016, where I will also hold a book signing event.
For the Pagan Pride Convention, I will be examining H. P. Lovecraft's connection with the Wiccan religion. In Chapter 7 of my book, I explore this connection, but due to space constraints, I was unable to give it fuller treatment. My speech will remedy this situation.
My presentation is entitled: "H. P. Lovecraft's Goddess Shub-Niggurath: Redefining the Horned God Archetype of the Wiccans."
On Tuesday, August 16th, at 7:00 PM Central Time, I am going to be a guest on Beyond the Forest Radio Show, hosted by Sanjay R Singhal RA. Beyond The Forest Radio tackles the strange world of the cryptids, the shadowy animals and creatures that science does not yet understand and their many manifestations.
You can catch the shows, both live and archived at the official Beyond the Forest Show Blog Talk Radio Page: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/beyondtheforest
As usual, I will be discussing my new book H. P. Lovecraft & the Black Magickal Tradition and focusing, in particular, on the Great Old Ones, Lovecraft’s pantheon of extra-terrestrial entities that are, in effect, every bit as real and influential as the creatures and the cryptids showcased on Beyond the Forest Radio.
I have also been invited to be a guest speaker for two consecutive days at the well-known Carnival of Para-Horror Convention in Buffalo, New York on August 27 & 28, 2016; I will be signing books at this event as well.
My two -part presentation at the Carnival of Para-Horror is entitled " H. P. Lovecraft's Cosmic Weird Tales & the American Cinema."
When we get closer to summer, I will post on this blog (and on Facebook & Twitter) more specific information- dates, times, locations, etc.- about the Pagan Pride Day & the Carnival of Para-Horror speaking engagements.
And finally, in early autumn, I will be holding another book signing event at the Georgia Tech Barnes & Noble college bookstore in Atlanta, Georgia on September 24, 2016 from 12:00 PM- 6:00 PM.
The Georgia Tech campus boasts a large Lovecraft following, so I am looking forward to this autumnal event; I hope to meet a wide variety of fans of horror & science fiction and hopefully, some of my dark friends and colleagues in the south who know me on Facebook & Twitter will stop by to pick up a copy of my book & say hello.
