Peter Levenda is an author of esoterica and historical investigation, from Unholy Alliance: A History of Nazi Involvement with the Occult (foreword by Norman Mailer) and his most recent Ratline: Soviet Spies, Nazi Priests and the Disappearance of Adolf Hitler, to the more specifically esoteric such as Tantric Temples: Eros and Magic in Java and Stairway to Heaven: Chinese Alchemists, Jewish Kabbalists and the Art of Spiritual Transformation. In addition, his Sinister Forces trilogy bears forewords by investigative journalists Jim Hougan, Dick Russell and Paul Krassner. He has appeared numerous times as an expert on Nazi occult beliefs on the History Channel, the Discovery Channel, the National Geographic Channel, and TNT, in shows ranging from Brad Meltzer's Decoded to The Nostradamus Effect.

This is a dense book that may be too perplexing to those without a basic grounding in ritual magic, Kabbalah, initiatory systems, Thelema, and other occult concepts. But to those with an active interest in such things, it is packed with facts and anecdotes from occult history and philosophy. As a writer who has used pseudo-Lovecraftian and ritual magic elements in my fiction, this book lends an eerie sheen of reality to the stuff I've only explored in my imagination, leading me to wonder: when we use our active imagination to explore the darker regions of the vast, incomprehensible cosmos, are we simply creating stories out of our subconscious effluvia and books and films that we've ingested, or are we tapping into something atavistic, primordial, and in some sense very real?
