Nomophobia Nomophobia is the fear of being out of mobile phone contact. The term, an abbreviation for "no-mobile-phone phobia", was coined during a 2010 study by the UK Post Office who commissioned YouGov, a UK-based research organization to look at anxieties suffered by mobile phone users. The study found that nearly 53% of mobile phone users in Britain tend to be anxious when they "lose their mobile phone, run out of battery or credit, or have no network coverage". The study found that about 58% of men and 47% of women suffer from the phobia, and an additional 9% feel stressed when their mobile phones are off. The study sampled 2,163 people. More than one in two nomophobes never switch off their mobile phones. The study and subsequent coverage of the phobia resulted in two editorial columns authored by those who minimize their mobile phone use or choose not to own one at all, treating the condition with light undertones of or outright disbelief and amusement.

BOOK of KAOS Tarot Originally titled, 'The Bohemian Tarot' -(underwhich the original Major and Minor Arcana sets were published seperately as A5 limited-edition (100 copies) folios around 1991) I redrew about half of the major arcana a decade later to form the deck into 'The BOOK of KAOS', an inter-sect-ion of ChaOrder Magick and the aeonic double current of Horus and Maat. The introduction of these added layers of esoteric symbolism do not detract, however from the deck's original appeal of directly emotive, pagan and tribal imagery. The 2001 Limited Edition was the first time the completed BOOK of ChAOS Tarot Deck was published as a whole. The 111 copies sold within 6 moonths. The AOS of the title thus also pays tribute to Austin Osman Spare,, the 'grandfather of ChAOS magick' who set this K-AOS Wheel turning - founder of the Zos Kia Cultus whose legacy is continued in Works such as this which promote Art as the prime menstruum of Magick...
