HORIZONS OF IMMORTALITY

This is a hard book to classify for its author says it is not a scientific work, not spiritualism, and their meetings were not seances. First a consideration of the various sciences --philosophy, psychology, psychic research, religion, etc. that are seeking to find the truth that human life may be enriched. The body of the book is composed of questions and answers received mainly by Mrs. Alexander Fachiri (Adila Fachiri, the violinist) using a board with an alphabet arranged in a circle and a glass as a pointer. A small but sure clientele can be built up for this type book if you will keep a list of customers interested in psychic research, spiritualism and even astrology, especially those who have lived abroad since the war where there has been a wave of this sort of research. Don't for a minute, however, sell this book as an orthodox religious argument for life after death or as orthodox in any line. The thesis seems to be that this life is a purgatory to which sinful spirits are sent to stone for their sins, that they fear birth as we do death, that God knows nothing of evil, etc. All not quite Sunday School cricket, but an interesting guess.
