Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Buckland, who is prominent in Spiritualist circles, has provided a basic, readable encyclopedia of major terms, people, and events in modern Spiritualism. It is written by a believer for believers, and skeptics will not find much in it. The skeptical organization the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal gets one brief, unflattering reference in the introduction. Believers, and those curious about specific terms, practices, or people, will find this work helpful and informative.

Some 500 entries range from short paragraphs to a page or two, and each entry includes a list of sources, often other works by Buckland. Examples of entries include Astral projection; MacLaine, Shirley; Near death experiences; Nostradamus; Seance; and Tarot cards. Boldface terms have their own articles within the dictionary-format text. The index is detailed. The chapter on "Resources" includes both print resources and online sites. Illustrations include both photographs and drawings that should reproduce well, and the writing is accessible without being overly casual.

Recommended for academic libraries with popular religion collections and public libraries where there is an interest in Spiritualism and similar beliefs. Kathleen Stipek

Review

"Students of the goofily strange will go for this ‘encyclopedia of clairvoyance, channeling and spirit communication.’ -- PEOPLE magazine, October 31, 2005

More About the Author

In 1962 I came to the U.S. from England, where I'd written comedy scripts and was personal scriptwriter for a popular British comedian. Interested in the occult for over sixty years, in the past fifty years I've had over fifty books published (fiction and non-fiction), with nearly two million copies in print and translated into seventeen foreign languages. I've received awards for my work and had books featured in several national book clubs. I was Technical Director for movies, working with Orson Wells, John Carradine, Vincent Price and William Friedkin (director of The Exorcist). Of Romany descent, I'm an authority on Gypsies and have written several books on them. I've lectured at colleges and universities and been the subject of articles in newspapers and magazines: New York Times, Los Angeles Times, New York Daily News, New York Sunday News, National Observer, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Look Magazine, Cosmopolitan, True, and others.

I've appeared on national television and radio talk shows and been on BBC-TV, England, RAI-TV, Italy, and CBC-TV, Canada. I appeared extensively on stage in England and played small character parts in movies in America. I taught courses at colleges and universities and have been a featured speaker at conferences and workshops. I'm listed in reference works including Contemporary Authors, Who's Who In America, Men of Achievement, and International Authors' and Writers' Who's Who.

Recent books include Atomic Sunrise, The Spirit Book, Buckland's Book of Spirit Communications, Golden Illuminati, and Solitary Seance. A DVD version of my Wicca video has also recently been released: Rebirth of the Old Religion. A prolific author, I just signed a multi-book contract with Penguin/Berkley for a Victorian mystery series. Today I live on a farm in north-central Ohio. Photo Credit: Gregory Ford

Raymond Buckland has done it once again this wonderful encyclopedia. The information is clear and concise and organized in a way that it is quite simple to locate any specific topic you may be delving into.

I would not consider this a book to sit down and read from cover to cover, it is as stated, an encyclopedia and therefore is better used as an encylopedia. Not to mention the fact that as an encyclopedia it is written as fact and I for one find it to be enlightening.

I highly recommend this book as a plethora of vital information regarding it's well descriptive title. Excellent. Kudos once again to Raymond Buckland.

I received this book approximately a year ago. At first I proceeded to look up, just certain points of interests. I then decided to start from the beginning of this book and start reading it from cover to cover. I realized, that although I know a great deal about clairvoyance, channeling, crystals, and so on, (being an intuitive archangel card reader, dream interpreter, and reiki master-teacher practitioner, there is still a ton to learn. I find this encyclopedia fun, informative, and facinating! Five stars and then some!

This is my "go to" book when I need a quick reference. It gives a good basic overview of topics and is excellent resource for folks who are new to metaphysics/paranormal stuff as well as those who are well versed.
A must have in your reference collection.
