Just as formal religion appears to dwindle to a minority interest, 'New Age' spirituality gathers increasing momentum and and baffles us with its popular appeal. What is more, it has appropriated Jung as one of its spiritual leaders. In his own trenchant style, David Tacey offers a theoretical and philosophical account of the New Age phenomenon and the archetypal imperatives that have brought it about. He also investigates the popular claim that Jung is a prophet or mystic, and argues that critics have been only too willing to concur with what the New Age has made of him, conspiring to turn Jung into a figure of ridicule. Jung and the New Age, redresses the balance, while offering a wide-ranging discussion about the state of consciousness in the New Age culture, and the future of spirituality versus formal religion.

Anonymous Halloween photographs from c.1875–1955—truly haunting Americana, with a foreword by David Lynch The photographs in Haunted Air provide an extraordinary glimpse into the traditions of this macabre festival from ages past, and form an important document of photographic history. These are the pictures of the dead: family portraits, mementos of the treasured, now unrecognizable, other. Torn from album pages, sold piecemeal for pennies and scattered, abandoned to melancholy chance, and the hands of strangers. The roots of Halloween lie in the ancient pre-Christian Celtic festival of Samhain, a feast to mark the death of the old year and the birth of the new. It was believed that on this night the veil separating the worlds of the living and the dead grew thin and ruptured, allowing spirits to pass through and walk unseen but not unheard amongst men. The advent of Christianity saw the pagan festival subsumed in All Souls' Day, when across Europe the dead were mourned and venerated. Children and the poor, often masked or in outlandish costume, wandered the night begging "soul cakes" in exchange for prayers, and fires burned to keep malevolent phantoms at bay. From Europe, the haunted tradition would quickly take root and flourish in the fertile soil of the New World. Feeding hungrily on fresh lore, consuming half-remembered tales of its own shadowy origins and rituals, Halloween was reborn in America. The pumpkin supplanted the carved turnip; costumes grew ever stranger, and celebrants both rural and urban seized gleefully on the festival's intoxicating, lawless spirit. For one wild night, the dead stared into the faces of the living and the living, ghoulishly masked and clad in tattered backwoods baroque, stared back.

An ancient vampire born in the Carpathian Mountains journeys to Renaissance Florence in this novel by a Bram Stoker Award winner. In Paris during the reign of Louis XV, Le Comte de Saint-Germain was known as a wealthy, worldly, charismatic aristocrat, envied and desired by many but fully known to none. In fact, he was a vampire, born in the Carpathian Mountains in 2119 BCE, turned in his late thirties, and destined to roam the world forever, watching and participating in the drama of human civilization. Now, in Renaissance Italy, he will witness the collapse of the artistic and literary life in Florence after the death of Lorenzo the Magnificent, followed by the rise of the fanatical Girolamo Savonarola. From a World Fantasy Award winner, The Palace is a different kind of vampire novel—rich, atmospheric, and full of the sweep of history.
