You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Is a collection (12) of short true stories by Christian mystic/occultist Dion Fortune [real name Violet Firth: 1890 - 1946]. My copy is by Ariel Press. I'm sure Google will yield up info and or would have copies available.

"Dr. Taverner" was a real-life male mystic under whom Fortune worked and studied. These short stories recount her most remarkable "cases" with him as mentor. Ms. Fortune briefly outlines all this in her Introduction.

The stories are:


The Return of the Ritual

The Man Who Sought

The Soul That Would Not Be Born

The Scented Poppies

The Death Hound

A Daughter of Pan

The Subletting of the Mansion


The Sea Lure

The Power House

A Son of the Night

Gothic enough for you? Lol.

It's right up the Gothic alley. I've had this book about 14 years now, occasionally re-read the stories. Always interesting.
