Read full description of the books:
A great book for those who want to delve more deeply into Tarot. Fortune's writing style is more accessible and practically oriented than is offered by most occult writers. Her work is as researched and as complex--focusing on good/evil-- as that of her male contemporaries (Crowley, eg.) She is not as hip amongst neo-occult, post-wicca circles--probably due to a cultural bias which elevates the contributions of male writers to high art (when men cook they are chefs, when they make crafts they are artisans, et al.) Fortune seems very relevant to me, though, for I feel even the most cynical postmodern could relate to her occult-as-meditation approach.

Read information about the authorViolet Mary Firth Evans (better known as Dion Fortune), was a British occultist and author. Her pseudonym was inspired by her family motto "Deo, non fortuna" (Latin for "by God, not fate").
From 1919 she began writing a number of novels and short stories that explored various aspects of magic and mysticism, including The Demon Lover, The Winged Bull, The Goat-Foot God, and The Secrets of Dr. Taverner. This latter is a collection of short stories based on her experiences with Theodore Moriarty. Two of her novels, The Sea Priestess and Moon Magic, became influential within the religion of Wicca, especially upon Doreen Valiente.
Of her non-fiction works on magical subjects, the best remembered of her books are; The Cosmic Doctrine, meant to be a summation of her basic teachings on mysticism; The Mystical Qabalah, an introduction to Hermetic Qabalah; and Psychic Self Defence, a manual on how to protect oneself from psychic attacks. Though some of her writings may seem dated to contemporary readers, they have the virtue of lucidity and avoid the deliberate obscurity that characterised many of her forerunners and contemporaries.
