I have yet to find a copy of Spare's works anywhere. I only
know of him via second hand (Kenneth Grant, etc). But the little I
have read tells me he was pretty good, albeit a bit eccentric. I
agree with your appraisal of Carroll, since modesty forbids me to
include my own works in such a discussion as does yours with your own
material. His magical equations, for example, I though was an
excellent attempt to combine science and magic. I also like his
eclectism, and of course, with a Ph.D. focused on chaos theory, I also
like chaos magic (I posted a chaos magic essay to theos-l via ftp
awhile back, don't know if its still there or not).
