Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. – AL I:40
“Grady’s first poem, “Ballet Sol,” also became one of his first published pieces, appearing alongside “The Parish Parson” in the July 1941 issue of Lou Goldstone’s publication Fantasia. Lou Goldstone was a well-known science-fiction illustrator and would later become a frequent visitor to the South Orange Grove Avenue residency of the OTO by the mid-40’s. Grady, or possibly Jack Parsons, brought him there. Lou Goldstone would later be responsible for introducing his friend, L. Ron Hubbard, to the OTO in August of 1945.”
