The Modern World held a Borges inspired “imaginary book review” contest. I haven’t read any of the reviews yet, but I love the idea.

Practical Paganism: Allister Crowley, Jorges Borges & Umberto Eco As Metaphysicians

A short introduction to Aleister Crowley, Jorges Borges and Umberto Eco:

Recently a friend of mine admonished me with a quote from Allister Crowley (“release yourself from the passion of results”) because of my impatience during a disscussion about a creative project we are working on together. It seemed rather odd to me to hear Crowley quoted in such context. As the infamous magus, scholar, and otherwise, his philosophies were some of the pretexts for movements impatiant with cumbersome morals and social dictates of that era, such as the ‘revival’ of hedonism in the 1890’s and the Neitschesque creed of action ver thought. The friend’s simple sentence has been running in my mind over and over the last few weeks, not so much as a reminder to stay calm but to remind me of how the struggle of the sentient mind over the confines of the reality around him has been going on for quite a long time.
