The Finger and the Moon

(1973)
A novel by

 
"Do what you will - but be very sure you will it" is the motto over the entrance to Allhallows, a college of magic and mystery set deep in the English countryside, in the shadow of legendary Glastonbury Tor. Here, under the guidance of former psychologist Martin Ellis, people come from all walks of life to study - what, exactly? - and leave with their lives deeply changed.

Freelance journalist Geoffrey is determined to find out what is going on at Allhallows, and what makes Ellis - and his graduates - tick. But from his first moments in the timeless atmosphere of the Georgian mansion, the garden with its strange sculptures, the mysterious temple and the enigmatic maze, he feels sure that the answers to his questions will not come easily. To reach his goal, he will need a great deal more than theories on magic and mysticism: he will need to experience these ancient forces and traditions himself - a process that will lay bare his soul, culminating in a mind-expanding vision from the very heart of the legend of King Arthur and the Matter of Britain. It's an experience not to be missed.
