Staff Reviews

A blazing account of occultism through the ages and the many bizarre people--Dunglas Home, Aleister Crowley and William Blake--who populated it, and the most intriguing book on the subject I've read. Wilson 's air of mystery prose style is well researched and packed with enough detail to keep you reading on through it's massive page count. But it's so juicy that by the end you'll wish there was more.

Alex Bell


Colin Wilson's great classic work is a comprehensive history of mystery and "magic". His genius lies in producing a skilful synthesis of the available material; clarifying without simplifying, seeing the occult in the light of reason and reason in the light of the mystical and paranormal. It is a journey of enlightenment – a wide-ranging survey of the whole subject and an insightful exploration of Man's latent powers. Republished two years after the author's death and with a new foreword by bibliographer Colin Stanley, Wilson brings his own refreshingly optimistic and stimulating interpretation to the worlds of the paranormal, the occult and the supernatural.
"The Occult is the most interesting, informative and thought-provoking book on the
subject I have read" --Sunday Telegraph
