Hitchhikers Guide to the Isles of Wonder 42 secrets by Mason Bigelow image
The book addresses Adams' preoccupation with 42 and, having uncovered some
of its massive significance for the Cosmos and the planet over vast ages, carries
on to investigate the notion of the Isles of Wonder as depicted in the 2012
Olympics, where we discover much more beneath the surface than you might
have expected... and not so much buried, nor even hidden - but rather
paraded brazenly before us to test our reactions:
The 'Shakspere'/Spear-Shaker/Bacon theme, with the 'Tempest' references; the
Tor, and the workers emerging from their underground bases; Queen Elizabeth
as Queen of Heaven, descending like a falling star, with her special advisor 007
(Bond, this time, rather than Dee); Caliban warning us that the Isle is full of
noises, as the  Schumann Resonances increase to hitherto unknown levels; the
bells, reminiscent of the Berlin Olympics where the 'bell' reminded us of
Thule and Vril; the worship of the deified bright orb in the sky - SUN, or SET?
And one last bit of curious magic in the shape of a performance by the most
in-your-face shape-shifter of our time...

I realise that this reads like just so much of your average conspiracy theory -
until all the threads are pulled together, by a single significant  event - the
most recent worldwide cataclysm, brought about, according to Comyns
Beaumont, through collision with a comet some 3500 years ago, curiously
coinciding with the end of the thirteen years war; both having taken place in
what is now Britain; the case for which he argues most convincingly.

His research leads to disturbing conclusions, the most important being that all
the history we have ever been taught is a lie mainly due to what was arranged
at the Council of Nicaea in 325AD by Constantine, with the help of Helena his
mother who went off to the Middle East looking for wood and re-naming
places, in order that the old philosophy and belief system of Britain could be
distorted into a form that would be used from then on to control the greater
part of the world. This, added to the relocation of history cum myth by those
survivors of the catastrophe and subsequent flood who settled in other parts of
the world has served to obliterate the true heritage and history of Britain
even unto the present day.

Jerusalem, Moab, Noah and Ab'Ram... Deucalion, Orpheus, Athens, and the
Underworld all had their origins and their reality in the North Lands - here, in
Eden, the Hesperides, the Isles of the Blest.

The origins of Satan and Quetzalcoatl, Baphomet and Robin Hood, Aslan and
Hermes, the Golden Ass and the Cockatrice, the Labyrinth and the Morris
Dance are all explained. Along with the Birds and the Bees, the true
Shake-spear, the Aegis, and the mind-altering honey of Eleusis.

AND the question that gives rise to the ultimate answer...

do you really believe it all just came to him in a flash
one morning in a field - the answer to life, the
universe and everything?
well, whatever he had been doing the night before, he
discovered some BIG truths!
hidden away in all that humour (by far the safest way
to divulge the truth) are all the answers you could
ever need to solve your deep metaphysical
explore with us the origins of the incoming whale, the
vogons, and the krikkit wars, before we take you
through a stargate to jupiter and beyond, to the
beginnings and ends of time, rearranging the geography
of the entire planet on the way...
it will not be a comfortable ride and the world to
which you return will be upside down. you have been
misled for many centuries by those you thought you
could trust, by toutatis! asterix had a rational fear -
the sky HAD fallen down! and not for the first time - or
the last...
ok, towel at the ready?

Like a bad attack of migraine that recedes but never leaves, THE DEATH TABLEAU is a
discomforting excursion into the essential seediness and wearisome tedium of real and
terrifying 'evil'.

Using word pictures that hit you like a brick wall, Herbertson tests his feisty hero to the
limit and beyond.

With a backstory already containing enough 'pain' for several lifetimes, the independent
Professor Peralis, a widowed academic turned businesswoman, has several seemingly chance
encounters and, drawn into a web of low magick, endures a vile process of dehumanisation,
involving rape, violence and mental torture.

At times touching on the brilliance of Lewis and Priestley with his descriptions of things
beyond description, Herbertson takes his readers beyond the wardrobe of fantastical psychic
outfits necessary for the performance of our daily masques of mundanity, showing how the
true ashlar is wrought only through being hit quite hard with sharp objects.

The dramatic rooftop denouement could be a scene from David Lindsay,  transposed to
'eighties Madchester.
