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.

About the Author:

Colin Wilson was a highly respected and erudite writer. He wrote many books, both fiction and non-fiction, on subjects such as the paranormal, the supernatural and philosophy, including The Outsider and Mysteries. This book is regarded by some as his "tour de force".

Review:

"The Occult is the most interesting, informative, and thought-provoking book on the subject I have read."Arthur Calder-Marshall, Sunday Telegraph;"I am very impressed by this book, not only by its erudition but by the marshalling of it, and above all the good-natured, unaffected charm of the author whose reasoning is never too far-fetched, who is never carried away by preposterous theories."Cyril Connolly, Sunday Times
