Aset Ka's Private Publishing company.

Post by Jonathan on 23.04.09 13:06

I have been thinking about something where I want the other users opinion as well.

We all know how the Aset Ka has their own private publisher. Their own company for the release of their most important public and internal works.

My question is, what would you guys prefer: to see all of the AK projects being released by their own private publisher (Aset Ka itself) or to have them published/released by third-party publishing companies, like Weiser, Llewellyn or any other publishing houses?

I don't see how that would make a big difference, Jonathan.

In any case, think it's more coherent that the would use their own publisher, as it is very sensitive material over which they would want complete freedom.

My preferences are for whichever option is best, and I think this one is.

I prefer to see all of the AK projects being released by their own private publisher. It's not more convenient, but it keeps the books wrapped in mystery. I don't think they are intended for a large crowd so keeping them a bit private makes sense. Nothing about these books should be commercial.

I would imagine that the AK would prefer to keep control over the printing of their publications. External publishing houses could have copies pirated and released before the official release date or other unauthorized pre-release uses of the material.
In today's world of print-on-demand publishing, the AK could just as easily license POD capable houses like amazon.com or whomever to do the printing for them, which would eliminate the need to ship a copy from Europe to the US or other other distant countries.
That said, why be concerned about it? It is the AK's business. Would not our time would be better used learning from their publications?

Interesting... I prefer seeing the projects of the Aset Ka being published by their own publisher, of course. It is deeply elite that they have their own private publisher. It only makes sense this way... I cannot imagine the Asetian Bible or Kemet being published by Weiser and such...

What is your own opinion on this, Jonathan?

I asked to learn about your opinions, but mine is not so different. I do agree with what all of you have been saying on this subject. Personally of course I prefer to see the Asetian books being published under Aset Ka's name. As Aghrab said, it is deeply elite and just feels right, powerful and true. Seeing sacred works as the AB being published under any name like Weiser or something like that would always give it a more commercial purpose as most of their books. Despite that I understand the reasons for the Asetians to demand having their own private company to publish, fully owned and controlled by them, so they can ensure the safety and control over what they produce and share, as well as retain full rights over their works. In most cases they are sharing highly secretive theories and content that was forbidden or kept private for thousands of years, it can have very bad consequences in such a modern uncontrolled society. I understand that having their own private AK publisher, although being markedly elite, can bring very high and demanding costs, being hard to be maintained by an occult Order that does not do commercial exploration. But personally I just like it a lot that they took that option. It is very special and unlike nearly all of what we can find published from other Orders and Covens on the occult...

The answer to this one is rather obvious... the Asetian private publisher is by far the best option for development, editing and distribution of AK-powered projects.

Like Jonathan mentioned, this surely does bring high maintenance costs. It is not easy to create, develop and maintain a fully private publisher governed by a secret Order, especially with the length of achievements that the AK Publisher seems to have in distribution range, being able to create, develop, polish, manufacture, and distribute books through the American, European, African, Middle Eastern and Asian markets. I don't mean only the costs of such a project, but also the requirements in resources and personel to being able to succeed in it.

It is also obvious the choice from the Asetians to use their own private publisher. Most respected publishers worldwide don't publish on the occult. The ones that do not only lack the respect of the scientific and publishing communities, as are strictly commercial, like the referred examples of Weiser and Llewellyn. Those companies aim at profit, not knowledge. The Asetians should never damage their work to please such companies. I am sure they never would.
Besides the demands that those companies make over what their writers actually write and all of their rules and edits over the raw texts and contents, they also take control over the rights related with its intelectual property. I can see why the Aset Ka would never do this, and instead aim for their own personal path, as always, imposing themselves as a real publisher and keeping full control and power over what they create, retaining all forms of copyright and intellectual property, in a text and content that otherwise would be easily exploited by the publishing companies.
Again, as it was said in this thread, that was a very unlikely move, that surely surprised many people, especially those that now try to silence the Aset Ka out of fear. But if we think about it, it was the obvious Asetian solution. Where everyone sees a cube, the Asetians see a sphere. They are genius minds and never adapt to society's solutions, they make society bow down and adapt to them. This is highly mirrored in this subject of the private publisher, since again shows how the Asetians are not passive beings that allow others to take control of their desires, moves and goals... but they take control of Life itself, spin the World in their own hands and surprise everyone with their simple, but yet perfect, solutions.

Great post, Victor.

I must also agree with most people on this matter. I really cannot see such important work being published by all those other publishers as Weiser. As it was said before, it only makes sense their work being published under their own power. Can you even imagine how much complications the Aset Ka would face if others had control over the publishing of their projects? Despite safety being one of their bigger concerns, elitism is also what they aim for, and they have surely achieved it. Twisted Evil

Oh, of course I prefer the AK to have its own publishing company, under their own power. As many here agreed, it is way more elite and more meaningful, despite being safer. But no matter how Luis Marques publishes his books, we will always in love with his words. I love you
