Hardback, 1st edition. In ancient Greece, the gods spoke to mortals through oracles. In the Victorian period, spirits of the dead supposedly communed with the living by way of spiritualist mediums. These days, certain gods and spirits seem to have forsaken both temple and seance room in favour of lecture halls, television talk shows, and viedotapes etc. Their conduits are neither oracles nor mediums, but channelers. Critics contend that channelers are charlatans, courting fame and amassing wealth by flimflamming the gullible. But to believers, channelers are among the heralds of the New Age, a dawning day of cosmic harmony and terrestrial peace. They purport to bring transcendental wisdom, wrung not only from the dead or deified but also from many strange and diverse entities - among them warriors and wizards, saints and sea mammals. In the first 10pp. of this book some prominent New Age channelers appear, along with a sampling of the messages spoken by their entities. The chapters that follow include : A Passion for Spirits, Spirits in the Flesh, Messages from the Other Side, The Witch of Lime Street, and Pipelines to the Beyond. Profusely Illus. in colour and b/w + Bibliog. and Index. 160pp. 4to. h/back. Signs of a water mark on the lower edge of the last 30pp. o/w Nr. F. No dw. required. A fairly heavy book which will require additional postage if shipped overseas.
