Gary’s new book, Working Class Mystic: A Spiritual Biography of George Harrison, is also available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and IndieBound.
In the November/December issue of Theosophy Forward, A Dictionary of Western Alchemy was chosen as a Notable Book. The review reads:
The book under review here is not an introduction to alchemy, but it is an extremely useful compilation of alchemic terms and symbols, explained with admirable clarity. Anyone interested in alchemy for its own sake or as an important cultural stream in Western thought will benefit from having this work to consult. As our friend Stephan Hoeller (Theosophist and Gnostic) is quoted on the back cover of the back cover of the book: “Jordan Stratford’s fine work is precisely what has been missing on the shelf of every student of the ‘Great Art.’ Accurate, insightful, and accessible!”
