The Mind Parasites

(1967)
A novel by

 
 
Wilson has blended H P Lovecraft's dark vision with his own revolutionary philosophy and unique narrative powers to produce a stunning high-tension story of vaulting imagination. A professor makes a horrifying discovery while excavating a sinister archeological site. For over two hundred years mind parasites have been lurking in the deepest layers of human consciousness, feeding on human life force and steadily gaining a foothold on the planet. Now they threaten humanity's extinction. They can be fought with one weapon only: the mind, pushed to-and beyond-it limits. Pushed so far that humans can read each others thoughts, that the moon can be shifted from its orbit by thought-power alone. Pushed so that Man can at last join battle with the loathsome Parasites on equal terms.
