I'm sorry to hear you were ill Gary. I'm greatly looking forward to the book - and I love that you are using an introduction from Lee Siegel's book. I've asked another Indian magician if Lee's book is an authentic report of life among the Maslet. It certainly seems so and is a WONDERFUL book. He had not read it, but another US magician thought it was mostly fiction. Does his book seem factual to you?

If any readers of this forum have read it and enjoyed it, I would also recommend Salman Rushdie's children's book Haroun and the Sea of Stories - it's MUCH lighter (and can be read quickly), but resonates with the type of eastern magical thinking that you can't find in the west.

Most of the book is factual.Then you have his chapters that are 100% fiction, though based on truths. 'Net of Magic' always provided me with inspiration and helped me to break away from the eurocentric model about what magic is and should look like. It has become my Bible.
