More About the Author

Born in the gritty Navy town of Bremerton, Washington and raised in the south Seattle suburbs, I began writing about as soon as I could hold a pencil. SF editor George Scithers' dictum that all would-be writers have a million words of so of bad prose in them, and have to write it out, pretty much sums up the couple of decades between my first serious attempt to write a book and my first published book, "Paths of Wisdom", which appeared in 1996. These days I live in Cumberland, Maryland with my spouse Sara; serve as presiding officer -- Grand Archdruid is the official title -- of the Ancient Order of Druids in America (AODA), a Druid order founded in 1912; and write in half a dozen nonfiction fields, nearly all of them focused on the revival of forgotten ideas, insights, and traditions of practice from the rubbish heap of history.

Format: Paperback
"Secrets of the Lost Symbol" is marketed as an unofficial guide to Dan Brown's novel "The Lost Symbol" (which I haven't read). The author, John Michael Greer, is a prolific blogger and author on a wide variety of topics, from peak oil and organic gardening to ritual magic and UFOs.

"Secrets of the Lost Symbol" looks like an abridged version of "The New Encyclopedia of the Occult" by the same author. Subjects covered include Hermeticism, Freemasonry, Rosicrucians, Cabala and astrology. There are also entries on Aleister Crowley, Paracelsus, Plato and various works of ritual magic. Although the author is a "Druid" and ritual magician himself, his approach is mostly sceptical. Indeed, it's a pity Greer hasn't published an unofficial guide to Brown's "The Da Vinci Code"! Now, *that* could be interesting.

Personally, I don't think "Secrets of the Lost Symbol" is interesting for those who already have procured Greer's other encyclopaedic works, or consider themselves otherwise well-informed about matters occult. However, as a teaser trailer for the general reader, this little book could be interesting. I therefore award it three stars.

I bought this book for my grandson. He did not like it, when I asked him "why?" - he said boring and non-competent. Though he is 11. I do not read books, like those, they make me feel that someone had stolen my fairy tale.
