This project represents a work of LOVE.
All texts so far gathered, as well as all future gatherings aim at exposing
interested students to occult information. Future releases will include
submissions from users like YOU.
For some of us, the time has come to mobilize. If you have an interest in
assisting in this process - we all have strengths to bring to the table.

Take warning from the misfortunes of others, so that others need not
