Nathaniel Altman's Review of Hodson's collected writings

In the latest Quest magazine, Nathaniel Altman has reviewed Sharing the
Light: The Collected Articles of Geoffrey Hodson, published in 2008. It is a
voluminous two volume collection of 1900 pages put together by John and
Elizabeth Snell, two long time members of TS in NZ.

While the review is a good one, from a practical point of view the books an
electronic copy as a pdf file will be more convenient for storage and
reference and search, not to mention much wider circulation it will allow.
After all who is going to read them? Only theosophists.

Time and again, all theosophical publishers seem to be blind to the need for
making publications available as pdf files which will go a long way to make
materials easily accessible to the readers. I failed to see this aspect
commented in Altmanâs review.

It is my hope that the movers and shakers in theosophical publications will
wake up soon to the reality of Internet world and hard copy voluminous books
are not the way to make material available to readers.

Are they waiting for another HPB to come and wake them up to the reality?
