In The Flesh tomorrow (NYC Thursday June 19), cupcake journalism, new review

Posted by invizweb on June 18, 2008

From Rachel Kramer-Bussel’s Myspace Page:

In The Flesh is tomorrow! It’s our annual GLBT Erotica Night.

Upcoming dates are July 17 (Rachel Shukert and others), August 21 (readers from Spanked), September 18 (Ellen Sussman’s Dirty Words night), and October 16 (Oral Sex Erotica Night).

We got a great shoutout from Flavorpill, who said:

This month’s installment of Rachel Kramer Bussel’s In the Flesh reading series is queer-centric, but all dirty-minded page turners are welcome.

Trans advocate Cris Beam reads her entry from the anthology Dirty Words: A Literary Encyclopedia of Sex and former MADtv writer and standup comic Bob Smith presents sections of his raunchy novel Selfish and Perverse.

..Also reading are former sex-toy tester Carly Milne, retired burlesque and drag performer Amie M. Evans, science-fiction and fantasy enthusiast Cecilia Tan, and underground scribe Charlie Vasquez. Tonight’s diverse offerings, by turns humorous and painfully honest, will definitely get your juices flowing.

And the official details: (see site for bios and more iinfo)

THURSDAY, June 19th at 8 PM
(B/D to Grand, J/M/Z to Bowery, F to Delancey or F/V to 2nd Avenue)
Admission: Free

The Heretic’s Guide is here!

Posted by invizweb on June 18, 2008

From previous guest LUPA:

The Heretic’s Guide to Thelema has arrived! Gerald del Campo, the author, will be over later this afternoon to do some signing, so if you want signed copy, go here to order now! Even if you order after he leaves, we’re having him sign this first batch. Plus we DO still have Trick Sensei CDs, which will go out with the first fifty copies preordered from us–not from Amazon, not from B&N, but just Immanion Press.

From the Green Wolf page:

No doubt a decent number of folks reading this are familiar with the works of Gerald del Campo, magician and musician extraordinaire. In June we’ll be releasing a special three-books-in-one volume of Gerald’s work-new editions of his popular (and, until now, out of print) New Aeon Magick: Thelema Without Tears and New Aeon English Qabalah Revealed, and a brand new text, The Ethics of Thelema. Starting now, you can preorder this volume, The Heretic’s Guide to Thelema.

New Aeon Magick is a primer on Thelema, written by the author for his children (though perfectly appropriate for people of all ages). Rather than merely relying on a lot of theory and fancy words, this text is meant for everyday practice and integration into one’s life. New Aeon English Qabalah Revealed takes Qabalah out of ancient Hebrew and into a more common modern language. However, rather than completely divorcing Qabalah from its roots, the text integrates the old and the new into a system fit for the 21st century. The Ethics of Thelema, while it explores decisions, beliefs and perspectives from a Thelemic viewpoint, may be of interest to anyone, Thelemite or no, who ponders the intent and impact of thoughts and actions.

We are proud to announce a special preorder deal! As mentioned, Gerald is quite the talented musician, and has been part of various bands for longer than he cares to mention. One of his current groups (yes, just one-he’s a busy guy!), Trick Sensei, have teamed up with him to release a special promotional CD just for folks who preorder The Heretic’s Guide to Thelema! Limited to a run of fifty copies, the CDs will be available-for free–only with the first fifty copies of the book sold from either this site, or the Immanion Press website. Preorder today to take advantage of this special offer!

For the first fifty copies sold, orders made from the U.S. or Canada will be shipped from the U.S. Orders made elsewhere will be shipped from the U.K. CDs will be shipped with books upon the June publication of the latter, barring unlikely and unforeseen delays.
