Synopsis: "Compared to the soul-destroying banality of most séance texts, the Marine Terrace corpus is a literary masterpiece, the unconscious product of a naturally dramatic mind" (Graham Robb, Victor Hugo: A Biography, 1997). From Aug., 1853 to Dec., 1855, while in political exile at Marine Terrace, his home on the Channel island of Jersey, the author of Les Misérables participated in numerous "table-tapping" séances. At least 115 "spirits" communicated with him, his family, and fellow political exiles. The group of alleged discarnate entities included the illustrious dead such as Shakespeare, Plato and Galileo; legendary animals like Balaam’s Ass and the Lion of Androcles; entities who claimed never to have never been alive, like the Shadow of the Sepulcher and Death; a series of abstract concepts with names like ‘India,’ ‘Metempsychosis,’ and ‘Ocean’--and aliens from the planets Mercury and Jupiter. The first translation into English ever of the most important of the transcripts of these séances, with an introduction by Martin Ebon setting Hugo's channeling experiences in their historical context. Were the séance texts only "the unconscious product of a naturally dramatic mind"? Readers will decide for themselves.
For those interested in Victor Hugo and his works, or in the phenomenon of channeling, I would recommend this book. -- John F. Miller, III, Ph.D., JOURNAL OF RELIGION AND PSYCHICAL RESEARCH, Vol. 23, No.1, January, 2000
Presented here is a whole 'nother side to the incredible mind that wrote Les Misérables. -- From THE NAPRA REVIEW, Vol. 10, No.2, March-April, 1999:
This book translates a good deal of [Victor] Hugo's channeling into English for the first time. -- -Patrick Huyghe, Editor, The Anomalist.

Book Description New Paradigm Books, 1998. 272pp. Soft covers. Fine. Translated with a Commentary by Chambers In 1853-1855, the great French writer Victor Hugo, while in exile on the island of Jersey, channelled thousands of messages from the famous dead. The spirits told him that powerful energies from beyond the grave and from other star-systems were trying to raise up the vibration level of our earth. They told him our participation was essential. The message to Hugo, of great passion, power and poetry, were exactly like those of the trance-mediums of today only 150 years ahead of their time. Bookseller Inventory # 43213
