Elements

Filed under: General — m759 @ 3:00 AM

In memory of Paul Sussman, author of archaeological 
mystery novels about Egypt—

IMAGE- Harvard Divinity School bookplate dated 1910

"… the sacred symbols of the cosmic elements
were hid away hard by the secrets of Osiris."  

Thrice-Great Hermes: Excerpts and Fragments ,
      by George Robert Stowe Mead,
     Theosophical Publishing Society, 1906   

Sussman's last novel, not yet published, was

The Labyrinth of Osiris .

Sussman, 45, reportedly died suddenly on May 31, 2012.

A perhaps relevant thought—

"A world of made
is not a world of born— pity poor flesh
and trees, poor stars and stones, but never this
fine specimen of hypermagical 
ultraomnipotence."

– e. e. cummings, 1944
