Spiral Nature now its own shiny new Twitter account: @SpiralNature.
Previously news and updates were Tweeted from my personal account, @plutopsyche. They still will be, but for those who want just straight Spiral Nature and occultural news, there’s now @SpiralNature.
It’s a new account, so I’m still building followers. If you follow @SpiralNature, I’ll follow you back shortly. It will be easier to keep up with what’s happening in the occultural community on a dedicated account. I look forward to connecting with all of you more directly!
I’m sorry to report that Dr Dave Evans (1962-2013) passed away in August.
Dave was both a scholar and a practitioner of the occult, and was a founding editor of The Journal for the Academic Study of Magic, co-editor of Ten Years of Triumph of the Moon (with Dave Green).
He was also the author of The History of British Magick After Crowley, Aleister Crowley and the 20th Century Synthesis of Magick, and pseudonymously, writing as Francis Breakspear, author of Kaostar! and If It Was Easy, Everyone Would Be Doing It!
Dave was also a contributor to both Spiral Nature and Plutonica.net, and a good friend. He will be missed.
Be in peace now, Dave, and thanks for all you were and all you’ve done.

Our introductory ad rates are incredibly low, starting at $40 for a full month of ad time. This is the first time we’ve ever offered ads, so we’re kind of testing the market.
