Book description
With 14 black & white illustrations plus rare early woodcuts throughout.

Included are virtually unknown selections from W.B. Yeats and Aleister Crowley, an essay by Robert Graves, and extracts from the works of Dennis Wheatley, August Derleth, Montague Summer, E.F. Benson and many others. The vast majority of the selections have not been in print for many years, and others have been commissioned especially for this book.

"It's a tasty Satanic smorgasbord with a high percentage of unfamiliar treats." - Ira Levin, author of Rosemary's Baby
