these books of yours. Would you be so kind as to list them for me and 
give a brief summary of the thesis behind them. I really want to read 
them for myself. Are they still in print? Published by? Thanks.

Hey Larry, the first one (In Search of the Masters) was self-
published and no longer in print, although I have some if anyone 
wants one. But it was just a trial run for the next two. All my 
books after that one were published by State University of New York 

The Masters Revealed: Madame Blavatsky and the Myth of the Great 
White Lodge (1994) thesis: HPB's Masters as presented in early 
Theosophical literature are a mixture of fact and fiction, and 32 
historical figures who mentored or influenced her in various ways are 
examined and seen to be reflected in her descriptions of Theosophy's 
adept sponsors.

Initiates of Theosophical Masters (1995)
thesis: a sequel to the above focusing on a later time frame and on 
HPB's disciples rather than her teachers

Edgar Cayce in Context (1998)
thesis: an examination of Cayce's readings that appraises their 
reliability in various aspects and examines their literary influences

If you go to and search under K. Paul Johnson as author, 
then go to the list of 8 books, you can get lots of free info. Back 
covers, indexes, excerpts, etc. Ignore the three titles that pop up 
on the first screen, as they are by the famous British historian Paul 

Thanks for asking, and hope that helps,
