Another near miss, my brother alerted me to Make Magazine 13, which has a great piece by Gareth Branwyn on the rocketry of scientist/magickian Jack Parsons. As Keith knows, i'm kind of obsessed with Parsons, and this is a great introduction to the geeky side of Jack. Much of the research came from George Pendle's Strange Angel: The Otherworldly Life of Rocket Scientist John Whiteside Parsons, which is one of two Parsons bios. Like Aleister Crowley, he really needs to be viewed by more than one biographical perspective, so i'd also recommend the pseudonymous Sex and Rockets: The Occult World of Jack Parsons, for the big picture. Parson's own writings, Freedom Is A Two Edged Sword, is currently out of print, but you can read good samples around the web, like right here.
The coolest thing for me about Branwyn's article is the fantastic "Rocket Scientist of Satan!" comic book cover by friend of Clea's Cave and Dr. Strange superfan Howard Hallis. You can see this 2003 lenticular digital collage amusingly animated here. Prepare to wander his website for a while... and do not miss The Picture Of Everything.
