KIRKUS REVIEW

Reluctant? Hardly, Mr. Logan seems a psychic band-stander of rare vintage... The David Susskind Show. The Tonight Show, visits with Barry Gray, Carol Reed, lectures, demonstrations, etc. etc. And he's just a youngster who's barely begun but he's already predicted as much future as Edgar Cayce in his prime. In fact, he corroborates Mr. Cayce and much of the current Miss Dixon: New York will fall, Atlantis will rise, a new messiah, born in 1962 in the Middle East will help us through the war years to come, and the 21st century will be the dawn of a New Age (for the survivors). But you might be surprised to know that our government is hushing up some unusual news: there is life on Mars, and a cure for both cancer and the common cold has already been discovered. Other interesting miscellany includes the comment that Shakespeare was a metaphysician receiving his works through a psychic medium--and that medium was Francis Bacon... hence the confusion; Christ studied Eastern Religious until he was thirty; reincarnation exists, so do flying saucers. Ah Horatio, there are more things on heaven and on earth if you can only keep the faith, baby.
