The Viridian Book of Occult Fiction

An anthology of stories edited by

The Viridian Book of Occult Fiction, the fifth volume of the books of occult fiction of many colors, brings together twenty-two tales, dating from 1824-1917, from the American occult revival. Tracing the history of the occult fiction of the United States from its beginnings, with writers such as Washington Irving and Edgar Allan Poe, the book marches forth through the mystical texts of occultists like Paschal Beverly Randolph, Freeman B. Dowd, and Belle M. Wagner, the scribe of the Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor, into the first part of the twentieth century, where Blanche Cromartie and Max Heindel, of the Rosicrucian Fellowship, spin their astrological magic. Containing a diverse and splendid assortment of stories, about mysterious initiations and magnetism, hierophants and soul-transfers, The Viridian Book of Occult Fiction, edited by Brendan Connell, who also supplies a fine, erudite introduction, is an indispensable addition to any library of the supernatural and occult.
