OAHSPE was written in America in 1881 by Brother John B. Newbrough. Oahspe is filled with inspiration and spiritual truths. Oahspe is pronounced: O as in o'clock, AH as in father, SPE as in speak.

Found this at a church junk sale for a buck, and couldn't turn down what promised to be a pretty laughable read. I didn't read the entire thing, because it's just WAAAYYY too much nonsense to wade through. Many of the names are clearly invented, written in such a way as to sound Old Testament-y.

It is hilariously full of bull. It really gives an insight into just how weird nineteenth-century religion could be, and how bizarre a phenomenon automatic writing was.

I've read and reread this trying to find the magic in it that David Gascoyne, British Expatriate poet, found in it. The issue: said magic is not in fact present. Gascoyne was under the influence of an early form of amphetamine at the time and this is what made it important.


It is goofy. I'm still going to buy a copy
