I'm Steve Cranmer, who some of you may know from heruraha.net, lashtal.com, and erwinhessle.com. (Maybe also from Usenet's alt.magick if you were there between about 1990 and 1995...) I consider myself a Thelemite, but that's a relatively recent phenomenon. I've been interested in the Golden Dawn, Freemasonry, Rosicrucianism,etc.; the general post-Renaissance Hermeticism deal.
I'm also a professional astronomer. Being both a scientist and a Thelemite is probably an unusual combination, but it shouldn't be all that strange for Scientific Illuminists like us, hm? I'm not interested so much in the "paranormal" aspects of magical practice, but more in the transformative and symbolic aspects of ritual and a broader "Thelemic" way of living in the world.
I'm in the middle of a large Thelemic writing project (which will probably end up as a free lulu.com book in, gulp, a year or two), but I'm also thinking about what I might be able to contribute to the Journal in the nearer future.
Here's to the success of this site!
