Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. - AL I:40
When I released RED FLAME No.1 The Poetry of Grady McMurtry back in 1994 we had yet to discover this little gem of a newsletter known as Nepenthe, which contained a rare poem and drawing by Grady McMurtry. The magazine was published shortly after World War II but unfortunately it contains no copyright information or year. It was simply released by Earl Singleton of the M.I.T. Graduate House in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Since we know that Grady McMurtry registered as an undergraduate at the University of Berkeley in 1947 it is presumed that he made connections during this period, which enabled him to submit the poem.
Love is the law, love under will. - AL I:57
