The Secrets of Dr. Taverner
#1
Smile 
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 Alibris.com or Bookfinder.com 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:

Blood-Lust

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

Recalled

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.
