Can You Write?

Do You Have Something to Say?


The more I planned the future of this site, the more I realized how time consuming it would be to execute all those plans myself. I need help.

If you've written any articles of interest to tarot & astrology students, and would like to see your ideas posted here, e-mail them to me, either as text, or as an attached Word 97 document file. I can't promise I'll "publish" everything. Also, I may revise your work for clarity (fixing punctuation, grammatical, and spelling errors); if work requires more than simple mechanical fixing-up, I'll return it with some suggestions, or questions.

Sadly, I cannot pay you for submissions.

I thought I would type up all of Lilly's Christian Astrology and put it up here, in a downloadable and printable format. It takes a person of finer mettle than I, however, to do all that typing. Instead, I've purchased a scanner, and OCR software, and plan to scan the following books and put them up here. This will be no small feat. I'll probably post material as I scan it and clean it up. As of 11/16/99, the scanner is backordered, so check back.

Why do I want to give away this stuff, when I could quite easily print it off and sell it myself? I give it away because I can. All this stuff is in the public domain, and an important part of astrological history. And who am I to make money off the work of others?

There are other old texts I'd like to put up, but that they are translated complicates the copyright laws--at least it does so beyond my simpleton's understanding of them. Until I find out what is and is not permitted, I have no plans to put up anything translated by contemporary translators.
