No, I haven't, but I've read other writings by Gareth Knight (a nom-de-plume, by the way) and I'm afraid his mystical analysis of a mash-up of Celtic, High Medieval and modern esotericism don't appeal to me. There's enough genuine mystery in the world without creating new ones.

2>yes, I know that is Basil Wilbey's alter-ego- or so it is claimed- but the idea of a subtext tradition, message or stream of consciousness is interesting. From time to time in history,ideas,political, economic philosophical and/or occult emerge and re-emerge. Some of these ideas are contained,or so I suspect (as having the book but not having read it yet), in Knight's book. Incidentally, you may find that the the plethora of"genuine mystery" in to be but a tip of the real ones. ----(later)--- Oh, by the way, you've got a nice library!
