    93 Books by Marcelo Ramos Motta are very rare. They have also become very expensive as collectors scoop them up. It is refreshing to see a new selection from his works appear on the market. Ms Rocha, who has translated several of Mr. Motta's works including Calling Children of the Sun and Astral Attack and Defence, has proved that she has the grit to translate prose and the grace to translate poetry. The poetry collection Poesias stands as the monument and proof of the Great Initiate's literary abilities even at an early age. It becomes obvious that one reason he was favored as the successor of Mr. Karl Germer was the he was the only one of his pupils with real literary abilities. Like Crowley, his sense of the sublime and the ludicrous often converges. This is nowhere more apparent than in Lucifer, a poem in which the forces of heaven and hell find some room to zoom as well as reconcile. The television scripts ache to be remade so that we have something decent to watch on the tube.... More > The sci fi is rather advanced for writing in the 1950s e.v. Mr. Motta even accurately predicted the use of drones in warfare in Children of the Sun and explored the ethics of first contact with aliens in The Silver Cube a decade before Star Trek's prime directive. I would recommend this highly to anybody interested in better understanding the Great Initiate's work. I wonder if the people in Canada in the 1950s e.v. were aware that their television programs sometimes mirrored the more humane side of Masonic rites. I would not recommend A Literary Selection for the average idiot pseudo-occultist who would be happier down at some California junk shop throwing their money away on a "Thelemic Rosary" of plastic beads or reading one of those less than mediocre rehashes of "What Thelema is All About" or "Thelema for Dummies" books that so sadly reflect the level of decline in American educational standards since his time. A definite five stars! 93/93< Less
