Iridescent Blossoms on the Moons of Saturn: Craig Williams Reads the Poetry of Clark Ashton Smith

“Of younger Americans, none strikes the note of cosmic horror so well as the California poet, artist and fictionist Clark Ashton Smith, whose bizarre writing, drawings, paintings and stories are the delight of a sensitive few.

Mr. Smith has for his background a universe of remote and paralyzing fright – jungles of poisonous and iridescent blossoms on the moons of Saturn, evil and grotesque temples in Atlantis, Lemuria, and forgotten elder worlds, and dank morasses of spotted death-fungi in spectral countries beyond earth’s rim…In sheer daemonic strangeness and fertility of conception, Mr. Smith is perhaps unexcelled by any other writer dead or living. Who else has such gorgeous, luxuriant, and feverishly distorted visions of infinite sphere s and multiple dimensions and lived to tell the tale?”

– H.P. Lovecraft, Supernatural Horror in Literature

“The Vodou mentality, by exhibiting a multidimensional vision of the universe, seems to correspond well to what Michio Kaku called the theory of hyperspace.”

– Dr. Reginald O. Crosley, The Vodou Quantum Leap: Alternative Realities, Power and Mysticism, p. 80 (Llewellyn, 2000)

A MYSTERY DRAMA BEYOND MUNDANE TIME – Internationally acclaimed author, acupuncturist and Ayurvedic practitioner, Craig Williams, explores tantric and radionic aspects of the Guede cult in contemporary American vodou through cut-up techniques developed by the pioneering creatives, William S. Burroughs and Brion Gysin.

These recordings utilize the power of the cut-up technique to explore alternative cognitive pathways while experimenting within the realms of creative expression, time and consciousness.

“Put on your headphones and dim the lights….the ritual is about to begin…” – Craig Williams

A printable PDF pamphlet containing the text of the cut-ups is included with purchase.

Note: These high quality stereo products are best experienced with head phones for optimal listening.
