In my obsessive pursuit of Andrew Collins, I trekked up to London today to see him speak at the Crowley Conference. Here are my notes from his talk . Simultaneously I have just been gazumped in an ebay auction for a copy of his rare – and valuable – book “The Second Coming”. I led the bidding for most of the seven day auction with an insane looking bid of £16 but in the last five seconds of the auction chiggers2002 (bastard!) upped it to £17 leaving me no time to reply. The crushing disappointment was somewhat mitigated by the appearance elsewhere on ebay of a second copy of the second coming. The new auction closes next Sunday, bids are already coming in but this time everybody else had better watch out!
