KIRKUS REVIEW

Another engrossing unearthing of strange phenomena and strange figures in the field of black magic, Seabrook's lifelong obsession. He believes firmly that evil manifestations, the sole power of witchcraft as a whole, exist only in the field of suggestion, in the mind of man, conscious, or subconscious. He exposes Satanism for what it is. His subject covers a wide range:- witch dolls, in Africa, France, London; primitive jungles and the haut monde; vampires and werewolves, with a fascinating tale of the Austrian Vampire of the 16 century; white magic, telepathy, -- precognition, the Rhine experiments in extra-sensory perceptions; modern Cagliostros etc. A well --seasoned traveler explores hex-infested byways -- and makes it good reading.
