znore continues to impress on his blog

Roberto Calasso

When I read znore's Groupname for Grapejuice blog, I often learn about books that I want to read. When I read his latest piece about a month ago, I wound up downloading a free copy of Jessie Laidlay From Ritual to Romance for my Kindle (I haven't had time to read it yet.) When I read his recent "On the Forgotten Art of Turning into a Tree," he convinced me to read The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony by Roberto Calasso. 

In any event, znore has been a busy guy — two new blog posts in the last few weeks. "On the Forgotten Art of Turning into a Tree," about how unusual experiences harden into religion, may perhaps particularly interest fans of RAW's first Cosmic Trigger book. The new one, "Generic Theography as a Slab of Text," also goes into the history of belief. I liked both pieces.
