****Before this gets "out of hand" let's clarify what we are talking
about. If members here in the U.S. had been "promised grade papers for
years"---which could have been easily photocopied, and mailed out to
be put in personal binders----and they are now being refused these
long-promised grade papers because this previously "initiatory" secret
material is now going to be commercially published in book form for
the general public as its only transmission---then we can say that the
Aurum Solis has lost its credibility as an initiatory magical
order-----On the other hand, if American members of the A.S. are
simply complaining because they will have to pay the cover price (or
jobber's lot price) for commercially published books (which might, or
might not contain a few things they haven't seen before) then the A.S.
Brits at headquarters are justified. Publishing is not easy or
inexpensive and organizations have a right to expect their members to
support their publishing efforts. Let's clarify this situation.******
