About the Author
Craig Heimbichner: Craig Heimbichner has contributed to Secret and Suppressed II (Feral House), and The Paranoia Conspiracy Reader. He recently appeared on "Decoded" (History Channel) analyzing The Bohemian Grove.
Secret society historian Craig Heimbichner follows the Middle Path to wisdom. He stays awake when we are all asleep. He works the graveyard shift in the secret lodge. He break-dances with the skeletons in the closet. He does the hokey-pokey with his whole body in. He shakes it all about. He turns himself around. And he tells us what IT” is all about.” Joan d’Arc, Paranoia The Conspiracy Reader
Adam Parfrey: Adam Parfrey wrote and edited Apocalypse Culture, Cult Rapture, Apocalypse Culture II, It's a Man's World, and The Secret Source. Steven Heller lionized Parfrey and Feral House in the Winter 2010 issue of Print Magazine, and The Seattle Weekly featured Parfrey and his publishing in a November 2010 cover story in Seattle Weekly magazine.
In Apocalypse Culture, Parfrey introduced readers to freemasonic inquiry, leading to such pop culture manifestations as Marilyn Manson's song, "Kiing/Kill 33"...
Praise for Ritual America: Secret Brotherhoods and Their Influence on American Society: A Visual Guide…
"Ritual America is an impeccably designed and wide-ranging survey of the topic that indulges in neither sensationalism nor extreme skepticism. Parfrey and Heimbichner cover Freemasons and Oddfellows, Jesters and Rosicrucians. They mine the possible Masonic roots of Mormons and magic. Brian Doherty, Reason.com
