The news of Kenneth Grant’s death has spread across the occult community, and many people have offered up their condolences and experiences with the man and his work. Mr. Grant was quite influential and controversial, so it’s good to see people put aside their differences to speak regarding him. So far, I have yet to see anyone stoop to using this occasion as an opportunity to promote their own agenda or legitimize some scribbling as the “channeled revelations” of Mr. Grant, and that heartens my views of humanity.
Now, let me stop by the Cult of Cthulhu website for no particular reason.
I meditated via astral projection and night striding so as to intentionally cross paths with Abdul Alhazred, long dead disciple of the Old Ones; Kenneth Grant, who has recently passed; and Simon (of Necronomicon fame) who shall soon be no more. In my conversation with their energy signatures our words became wild and twisted; voices became whispered croaking as if we spoke by way of demon frog. Alhazred, Grant, and Simon passed what inspiration they had into these sacred ramblings which you will be reading in a moment, after this brief introduction. However, since I was required to take dictation primarily by way of numbers, colors, and certain fragrances there are a few sections which may or may not have been the exact words of those energies. Plus, they occasionally talking all at once.
Sigh. Stay classy, Darrick.
