5.0 von 5 Sternen Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius. And then some! 1. November 2013
Von Ashtar Command - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I've already reviewed this book elsewhere on this site, but why not take the opportunity to promote it again? "The Element Encyclopedia of Secret Societies" is an immensely informative and entertaining guide to "secret" societies, fraternities, occult groups, conspiracy theory and rejected knowledge. It contains entries on pretty much everything from the United Irishmen and the Sons of Liberty to Freemasons and suicide cults. The author, John Michael Greer, is supposedly an initiate of at least a dozen more or less secret societies, so he presumably knows what he is talking about. Unless, of course, the whole thing is a gigantic disinformation smoke-screen to make us look in all the wrong directions...

Greer is sceptical to most conspiracy theories, so don't expect any sensational revelations about the Knights Templar, Bohemian Grove or Skull & Bones in this work. At one point, Greer humorously reveals that an important member of the John Birch Society was simultaneously affiliated with an obscure group in the small town of Shickshinny, Pennsylvania, which claimed direct descent from the Knights of Malta. Yet, the Maltese knights are usually seen as evil by conspiracy theorists! Greer whips the Priory of Sion, known from "The Da Vinci Code", in several entries. Folks, wake up, it's just a hoax.

Yet, even this sceptical author has a soft spot for *some* alternative theories, including pre-Columbian contacts with America (the Sinclair Family!), the Lost Civilization, or the idea that Shakespeare didn't really write the works attributed to him. You have been warned. ;-)

I've already awarded this fun read five stars, and here we go again...
5.0 von 5 Sternen Under the apron 5. Dezember 2015
Von Ashtar Command - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you want to know what Masons have under their aprons, if OTO really practice sex magic (and how you can contribute to the ensuing melee), or how the Illuminati pulled off the Moon landing hoax, this is – I'm afraid – not the book for you. Rather, this is a relatively serious encyclopedia of (mostly Western) secret societies of all kinds: fraternal orders, conspiratorial political groups and esoteric “sects” and “cults”. The distinction isn't always clear cut. The grand mama of all secret societies, the Freemasons, has inspired groups of very different kinds!

If you're familiar with conspiracy theory, you will recognize many of the entries, but perhaps be surprised reading about the real background of the Illuminati, the Skull & Bones or Bohemian Grove. The author, John Michael Greer (who, curiously for a seeming skeptic, is an initiated member of several secret orders and an operative magician) has also included entries on “hidden history” and other “rejected knowledge” claims. Many of these are also fairly widespread, such as speculations about the lost world of Atlantis or the existence of aliens (from outer space). Other topics are more obscure. How many have heard of Rainbow City, a Martian city under the ice of Antarctica, made up of huge plastic blocs, and locked in combat with reptilian beings from Venus? While the author doesn't believe *this* outlandish scenario, he does suggest that Shakespeare may not have written his plays, or that somebody else than Vikings may have reached the New World before Columbus…

All in all, a good – but not always very objective! – reference work for your book shelf, if you're interested in esoterica or matters Masonic, and don't mind a somewhat more skeptical look than usual on the matter.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Non-sensationalist about secret societies 22. November 2015
Von Ashtar Command - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you think all the world is in the throes of a Masonic-Jewish cabal of the llluminati (with reptoid aliens at the very apex of the shadow hierarchy and, I suppose, cosmic food chain), this is probably not a book for you. For starters, author John Michael Greer is a Grand Archdruid, a Scottish Freemason and a firm believer in the reality of climate change. This would make him an unreliable source of pretty much anything as far as conspiracy buffs are concerned.

If, on the other hand, you want a relatively down-to-earth look at Freemasons, Odd Fellows, Skull & Bones, the Illuminati (the real ones) and a host of other lesser known “secret” frats and lodges, this may be just what you've been looking for. Apart from various Masonic, Quasi-Masonic and Masonic-inspired societies, the encyclopedia also contain information about occult brotherhoods (such as the elusive Rosicrucians), rejected knowledge claims (Atlantis, anyone?) and political seditionists (Decembrists and Carbonari, to mention just a few). Greer has also included an entry on the Ancient Order of Druids in America (AODA), a small group headed by…Greer himself.

The point of the book seems to be to demystify secret societies, show their diversity, and discuss aspects of their symbolism and esoteric teachings (if such exist). Another purpose is to deny the wilder conspiracy claims, for instance about the Illuminati, the Scottish Rite or Bohemian Grove. However, Greer isn't opposed to all “rejected knowledge” claims – he can't be, since his very own esoteric curriculum (found in another book by the same author, called “Celtic Golden Dawn”) deals with Druid symbolism, ritual magic, sacred geometry and divination. Skeptics may be taken aback by Greer's support to the Anti-Stratfordians or soft spots for non-Viking pre-Columbian contacts with the New World. Nor is Greer particularly “objective”, in contrast to modern encyclopedias which try to sound dispassionate. His sympathies and antipathies do show here and now, as when he “disses” Traditionalism as a Theosophy mimic.

That being said, I nevertheless consider this encyclopedia a comprehensive treatment of the subject (I read it cover to cover) and a good counterpoint to more sensationalist books on Masons, conspiracies and/or the occult.
