We proudly announce the arrival of The Octavo (Roundworld Edition) A Sorcerer-Scientists Grimoire.
And also The Octavo page on this site.
We have the Eight Spells/Equations, some of which have several secondary equations. Although the Eight Equations just about fit on a single page they have several hundred pages of verbal explication, diagrams, and illustrations with them to show their practical uses. Plus all sorts of oddments have arisen as side effects of investigating the Discworld Mythos including precise values for the Thaum and Prime both there and here, and a consistent set of rules for quantum mechanical chess. The Octavo contains some magnificent illustrations, also available as larger prints from the artists’ website.
The Apophenion has achieved a great reception and attracted some glowing reviews. Some excellent artwork illustrates the text and a noted fantasy artist has donated a very striking design for the cover.
It has taken 10 years to create this work, perhaps the strangest book ever written. It attempts to integrate quantum panpsychism, multimind, neopantheism and a general theory of magic and physics based on a hyperspherical vorticitating universe with 3 dimensional time in an eight dimensional universe with supporting algebra and geometry.
Plus a new goddess showed up, Apophenia, sister to Pareidolia and Eris, thus completing the Three Wyrd Sisters of Chaos.
A new edition of Psybermagic has also appeared with a substantial amount of new material included. Basically I filled in all the blank spaces that I left for results when retiring for a long sabbatical.
Arcanorium College now continues with its fifth year. It has become furiously productive with two courses going on simultaneously during most semesters and with a great deal of discourse in progress in the Common Room and the Bar.
It has attracted members and contributors and staff from all over the world, and has already produced several editions of its online magazine Abracademia which you can view in the public sections, we have a third edition in progress.
In the hope of forestalling ever more email questions on topics to which I invariably send the same answers, please consult Stokastikos’ Problem Solving Page initially for matters of Magical Attack, Unrequited Love, Money, and how to become an effective magician.
I have sculpted a metaphysical machine entitled Apophenia’s Chaotic Torsion Pendulum which serves as a free public oracle for discerning enquirers.
