Including key figures, such as Jules Bois and the lifestyle fantasist Joséphin Péladan, and numerous other practitioners, such as Jane de La Vaudère and the highly entertaining Renée Dunan, this volume, much of the contents of which appears in English for the first time, is sure to give new insight into one of the most interesting periods of the occult.

Containing a varied and rich array of stories, about reincarnation and magic, visionaries and secret societies, The Vermilion Book of Occult ­Fiction, edited and translated by Brian Stableford, who also supplies a brilliant, scholarly introduction, is an indispensable addition to any library of the supernatural and occult.
