The Chemical Wedding of John Crowley Finds Its Way onto Kickstarter

I have no illusions that this blog has a substantial readership (I can read statistics as well as anyone else) but for the sake of reaching perhaps one or two additional people I am posting this Kickstarter campaign from Small Beer Press, to publish an extraordinary edition of the classic Chemical Wedding of Christian Rosencreutz in a new translation by John Crowley.

Although Mr. Crowley has been quite well introduced on my earlier joculum blog,, I shall have to assume that readers of this post who have not already contributed to this campaign will be attracted by the excellent book design and the reputation of the original text, which Mr. Crowley has called the world's first science fiction novel.

In any case, here is the URL, and your attention to same is appreciated:
