KIRKUS REVIEW

A formidable list: Jean-Baptiste Vianney, the French cure later canonized after a lifetime of miracles; Frederick Bond who probed the secrets of Glastonbury Abbey (King Arthur's tomb?) by communing with dead monks; Joan Grant, reincarnated at least seven times who immortalized her previous selves in print; Daniel Douglas Home, known to levitate before astounded and credible witnesses; Molly Fancher, blind, bedridden, with five emergent personalities; Catherine Elise Miller, astral projectionist--the first woman on Mars?; Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his adventures with the little people; Emanuel Swedenborg who walked with God and founded a new religion; Henry Gross, divine dowser and Sidney Dickinson who lived through a Poe-etic horror story with his psychic wife. An eclectic compendium of the bizarre for a psy-chic audience.
