On their way home, Sandy and Ken opt for a short cut, and rescue Ralph Conner from the wreck of his truck.

It's up to Ken and Sandy to prove a conspiracy is involved.
Despite repeated attempts to explain the circumstances surrounding Ralph's crash, nothing concrete is achieved.

Further investigations at the lake on the outskirts of Brentwood, reveal the whole sordid plot. Ken and Sandy must escape a gas filled tunnel and a final battle with the forces arrayed against them, before successfully unraveling the Clue of the Phantom Car.

The Secret Doctrine
3 volumes.
Collected Writings series (1888)
cover image of The Secret Doctrine, Collected Writings series for sale in New Zealand

Volume 1- Cosmogenesis, 2- Anthropogenesis, 3- General index and bibliography.
Unabridged Verbatim of Original Edition of 1888.
A large quantity of material dealing with the history of occultism as contained in the lives of the great Adepts of the Aryan Race, and showing the bearing of occult philosophy upon the conduct of life, as it is and as it ought to be.
What is contained in this work is to be found scattered throughout thousands of volumes embodying the scriptures of the great Asiatic and early European religions. What is now attempted is to gather the oldest tenets together and to make of them one harmonious and unbroken whole. The publication of many of the facts herein stated has been rendered necessary by the wild and fanciful speculations in which many Theosophists and students of mysticism have indulged in their endeavor to, as they imagined, work out a complete system of thought from the few facts previously communicated to them. But it is perhaps desirable to state unequivocally that the teachings, however fragmentary and incomplete, contained in these volumes, belong neither to the Hindu, the Zoroastrian, the Chaldean, nor the Egyptian religion, neither to Buddhism, Islam, Judaism nor Christianity exclusively.
The Secret Doctrine is the essence of all these. Sprung from it in their origins, the various religious schemes are now made to merge back into their original element, out of which every mystery and dogma has grown.
This edition has copious editorial notes and many black and white photographic plates throughout volumes 1 and 2.

He describes the Atlantean and Lemurian Root Races and their civilisations, which developed the first concepts of 'good' and 'evil'.
They manipulated natural forces, laid the foundation for human legal and ethical systems, and defined and nurtured the distinctive yet complementary powers of men and women.
They brought humankind, many centuries ago, to its highest artistic, intellectual, and spiritual attainments.
He discusses the supersensible parts of the human being.

The Stone Speaks
The Memoir of a Personal Transformation.

While convalescing after a motor accident, Maud Oakes visited the home of C. G. Jung in Switzerland. There she encountered a block of stone that Jung had designed and carved with signs, symbols, and inscriptions that drew on Greco-Roman religious ideas and the symbolism of astrology and alchemy.
The Stone Speaks is her meditation on the personal and transpersonal meaning of the Stone and her extensive correspondence with Jung regarding her interpretations and her account of the healing and transformation that took place through her inner change, achieved by synthesis and integration.
She shows that the influence of one's culture need not be antithetical to the spontaneous production of symbolism for one who can enter into the creative spirit of giving meaningful expression in some art form to the non-rational contents of the unconscious, as Jung did when he brought into visible form what he saw on the face of his block of stone.

Crowley The Great Beast, has been the subject of several biographies, some painting him as a misunderstood genius, others as a manipulative charlatan. None of them have looked seriously at his career as an agent of British Intelligence. Using documents gleaned from British, American, French, and Italian archives, Spence sensationally reveals that Crowley played a major role in the sinking of the Lusitania, a plot to overthrow the government of Spain, the thwarting of Irish and Indian nationalist conspiracies, and the 1941 flight of Rudolf Hess. Spence claims that a great many of Crowley's acquaintances were themselves associated with the intelligence apparatus, and believes his mysticism was a perfect cover for espionage.

Through South Westland
A Journey to the Haast and Mount Aspiring, New Zealand
cover image of Through South Westland: A Journey to the Haast and Mount Aspiring New Zealandcover image of Through South Westland: A Journey to the Haast and Mount Aspiring New Zealand

Maud travelled through Arthur's Pass and Otira, through Hokitika and south to Haast, where she went inland to Lake Wanaka and hawea, visited Mt Aspiring, then back to Christchurch via the Lindis Pass and lakes Tekapo and Pukaki. She recounts the scenery as well as the people she met.
'This is the story of a ride - of a five weeks' wandering in the Back-blocks of a land still in the making - a land whose conditions, even to-day, are often primitive. Properly speaking, there is no story - only impressions, gathered in those wanderings: things I saw, things I heard, in isolated settlements, where the men and women, living face to face with Nature, seem to show a readier kindness; where the robuster virtues still thrive, and the heart of the race is young. Looking back now from under English skies, surrounded by sights and sounds of an English summer, it seems very far away: a land apart - a people who belong almost to another world. An enchanted land of cool, dim, forest aisles of lonely snow-peaks filling the end of some purple gorge: of rushing, hurrying streams: of untouched solitudes, where one goes all day long in wondering worship.'- Maud Moreland's preface.

BUKOWSKI Charles 
Hollywood
cover image of Hollywood by Bukowski

The fictionalized account of Bukowski's experience adapting his novel Barfly into a movie. Henry Chinaski, (Bukowski), is pushed to translate a semi-autobiographical book into a screenplay for John Pinchot. He reluctantly agrees, and is thrust into the otherworld called Hollywood, with its parade of eccentric and maddening characters: producers, artists, actors and actresses, film executives and journalists. In this world, the artistry of books and film is lost to the dollar, and Chinaski struggles to keep his footing in the tangle of cons that comprise movie making.
Hollywood is Dirty Old Man Bukowski at his most lucid. It overflows with curses, sex, and alcohol. And through it all, or from it all, Bukowski finds flashes of truth about the human condition.

BUKOWSKI Charles 
Factotum : A Novel
cover image of Factotum : A Novel by Bukowski

One of Charles Bukowski's best, this beer-soaked, deliciously degenerate novel follows the wanderings of aspiring writer Henry Chinaski across World War II-era America.
Deferred from military service, Chinaski travels from city to city, moving listlessly from one odd job to another, always needing money but never badly enough to keep a job. His day-to-day existence spirals into an endless litany of pathetic whores, sordid rooms, dreary embraces, and drunken brawls, as he makes his bitter, brilliant way from one drink to the next.
Factotum is a masterfully vivid evocation of slow-paced, low-life urbanity and alcoholism, and an excellent introduction to the fictional world of Charles Bukowski.

Bukowski on squabbling neighbours, off-kilter lovers, would-be hangers-on, and the loneliness of a man afflicted with acute powers of observation. The tone is gritty and amusing, spiralling out towards a cock-eyed wisdom.
