Zoroaster’s Telescope is a wonderfully strange book of oracle magic. Written in 1796 by André-Robert Andrea de Nerciat, a French author of Libertine genre, the text later appeared in a collection of German folk literature compiled by Johann Scheible from which this English translation was made.
“You think the owner of that book store doesn’t know what you’re doing? Oh, they know exactly what you’re doing. You say you ‘love’ books? You say you enjoy perusing the soothing aisles of a book store, so lovingly curated by a book store owner who spends his or her life ensuring that the very latest and most interesting book selections are there, presented for you in the most interesting possible way? You like that a lot? Yeah. So you can go home and order that shit online…. Book stores do not exist just to show off book covers so you know what you want to order from Amazon! You ungrateful bastards!””
