Esoteric Book Conference (2009)
September 19th & 20th
Seattle, WA


The Esoteric Book Conference is an annual international event to bring together authors, artists, publishers and bookmakers working in the field of esotericism. In addition to presentations by notable authors and scholars, the conference opens it doors to publishers and booksellers showcasing new & used books as well as rare and hard-to-find esoteric texts. For two days the conference hosts the largest selection of esoteric books under one roof. Contemporary esoteric publishing, finepress book arts and antiquarian texts are offered to augment the libraries of readers, scholars and collectors alike.

This multi-disciplined conference will feature presentations by contemporary authorities researching and working in esoteric currents both East & West. Western Esotericism, Gnosticism, Theosophy, Mythology, Shamanism, Rosicrucianism, Sacred Sciences, Occulture and World Religions are among the subjects to be represented. An esoteric book fair and art show will also be on site allowing education, vending and networking in a unique field of literary, historical and cultural arts.

This conference will offer several opportunities for promotion, networking and exhibition for publishers, authors and artists who work in the esoteric publishing field. There will be two days of presentations wherein authors and scholars may present lectures as well as a book fair with scheduled book signings.

The list of guest speakers and occult publishers is very impressive. I'm going to try my best to make it.

Dammit, I'd cut off my small toes and maybe a few other things (no, not that) if I could suddenly get a small house in rural Oregon. I would thereby preserve an existense relatively free of insufferable city tripe like people buying things they won't use on their iPhones while driving -10 in the express lane of an interstate, while still being within a plausible reach of all those nice things you costal Staters have access to.

Since the day it was announced, I've tried to figure out how to be able to go. I've even tried to get magazines to fund me. I finally decided that the same amount of money would be better spent on books. I doubt I'm going to make it, but I will be paying a great deal of attention to what occurs there.
