The buzz on the New Orleans Gnostic Vodoun list is that the "expanded edition" of the VGW is not so expanded -- pretty much an exact reprint.  None of the missing diagrams are included and the "expansion" seems to consist of two pages of preface.

So, if you couldn't afford the out of print version, this is worth getting, but if you're looking for new material, you may be disappointed.

Yeah, I got it a few days ago. Despite the fact that it's said to have 672 pages (on both Amazon & Weiser) in fact it's the exact same amount of pages as the original, with the exception of the preface. I was kind of surprised there weren't any diagrams. Exact reprint? I wonder if they even bothered to correct the typos.

While I'm glad that the book's back in print, and I think it's a good thing that people who have never read it before can now get their hands on it, I do have to say this edition seems a little half-assed. Oh well.
