Our final issue returns to its roots with a wealth of EQ tables of correspondences relating to the Trees of Eternity as well as the third and last installment of Jake Stratton-Kent's Liturgical Approaches to Invocation & Evocation and a telling example of initiation by 93. Charlotte Rodgers graces our pages with a descriptive account of her creative blood-workings while Hugo Alverda reveals the shocking secret of the Rosy Cross. Ed Novum Grey provides us with a glimpse of the Good Society and describes the creation of a Pleiades shewstone. By request, we have reprinted a somewhat revised and expanded text of Erze's Loving the Dead, and Dis and Erze offer their thoughts on the changing of the guard.

From our Editorial: "You have in your hands the latest and last edition of The Equinox, British Journal of Thelema. Not, you will be pleased to hear, because the editors are retiring from the field. on the contrary, another larger and more comprehensive incarnation of this Journal will be superseding it: a Global Journal of Magick, details and banner title to follow.
The reasons for this change are complex and the Editors have considered them thoroughly.
Firstly, not only capitalism and terrorism have undergone globalisation; indeed, they have largely done so in response to cultural developments, and then taken the credit. Many have yet to adapt to this new situation, we do not intend to wait. Two thousand years ago, several major religions and magical systems underwent a powerful and enduring synthesis. while attributed to philosophical movements and major seats of learning this was the result of ‘global’ culture on the popular as well as intellectual level. The potential for such a synthesis has not emerged again until now. it is now not merely a possibility, it has become inevitable despite the indifference of secular learning and the distracted incomprehension of many in the west."

Plus Reviews, Letters, Notices and our Editorial as well as our Publisher's Note, which we will reproduce in much of its entirety here:
It has been our privilege to work with each author who has contributed to the Journal, and a rare treat to work with Jake Stratton-Kent in each of the capacities in which he has served this great work of 22 years. It was a love of the English Qaballa, for which issues 1-8 were (in)famous, that caused us to embark on this journey and these final three issues are, at their heart, our offering of gratitude to a system that has enriched and empowered our lives. We look forward now to the next incarnation of the Journal while offering our thanks to those of you who continue to support Hadean Press and all that we do.
