The tiny book (maybe good for a tiny house?)
My own most recent book, Metaphysical Odyssey Into the Mexican Revolution: Francisco I. Madero's Spiritist Manual Introduced and Translated, is now available in Kindle. The paperback edition, slightly delayed, will be available in January 2014, as will the Spanish translation by Agustín Cadena, Odisea metafísica hacia la Revolución Mexicana. And apropos of that, I'll be blogging next week about some of my latest rare book finds. More esoterica by the mysterious Dr. Krumm-Heller.
