Mrs. Holloway and the Mahatmas

Some time ago on Theos-Talk and several other discussion forums, I announced a new book I was 
publishing on Theosophy, Mme. Blavatsky and the Masters.

Several subscribers have recently emailed for ordering info although this info is in previous postings therefore I repeat this info for those who may have missed it the first time around.  Plus I mention another new book supplementing and complementing mine.

My book is titled "Mrs. Holloway and the Mahatmas."

For online ordering info, see:

There is also a link to my book near the top of my Blavatsky website at

I'm sorry the book is somewhat expensive but I believe the almost 60 pages of
full colored reproductions will provide the reader with a treasure trove of
original documents and photos for the most part inaccessible for over 100 years.

The book consists of 166 pages and is oversized (8 1/2 X 11).

You will almost think you are holding and reading these letters from  the Masters.

See also our previous posting on Theos-Talk for more background info about the

There is also another book out on Mrs. Holloway by Dr. Diane Sasson.

I wrote to her the following:

Dear Dr. Sasson,

. . . You have done a remarkable, masterful job.  Although I might disagree with some
your conclusions, etc. you have provided such a wonderful portrait of Laura.  I
first became intrigued with Mrs. Holloway in the 1970s helping with the 2nd ed.
of Mrs. Hanson's and Mr. Linton's READERS GUIDE TO THE MAHATMA LETTERS.  etc.

. . . My (new) book in effect provides much of the Blavatsky/Mahatma source
material/Holloway source material including beautiful colored photographic
facsimiles of ALL the Mahatma and Blavatsky original letters at Winterthur.

It is like your book and my book are companion volumes!

And I did NOT publish the second half of my original book manuscript because it
was still incomplete and because for the last 2 or 3 years I had been involved
in other Blavatsky projects. . . . 

Going thru your book, you filled in some of the gaps in my own understanding and I see that
maybe I have material that you did not know about. 

Tomorrow I am going on a 6 week trip away from Tucson but will take all my Laura
Holloway folders with me and will go thru you book and compare it with the
material I have collected over the years.  Once I refresh my memory on some of
this I will then write you in greater detail and try to fill in some of the few
gaps that I think I see in your narrative.

I am also quite intrigued with what you write about Judge as it relates to other
documents I have.  Plus in your book the whole topic about women and various
related sexual matters is also very thought provoking.

I am planning to email alot of my website users and correspondents and tell them
about your book.

I am so glad that you reproduced Master KH's portrait from my website. 

I must close for now and pack for my trip since I "wasted" the whole afternoon
fully absorbed in your book!!!  Thanks very much for writing this book....I hope
more people will be introduced to Laura and I hope students of Blavatsky and
Theosophy will carefully read and study your book.

In a rush....


You can buy Dr. Sasson's book at Amazon at:

On  my  recent vacation I spent several days looking at all my papers I have
collected over the years about Mrs. Holloway. A stack one foot high!

As a result of going back over my box of material I think I MAY have found a few
more unpublished Mahatma letters. That will be my working hypothesis until I
either verify or falsify it!

I should tell readers that in my book I did publish the portraits of both KH and
