Darklore is a series of essays on the esoteric, weird, and paranormal. If you’re looking for deep cuts on esoteric subjects, you won’t really find them here — this book is survey-level. But that’s a good thing.
It’s a great jumping-off point for further research on the subjects you’re interested in. The bibliographies and notes are fairly thorough. I got what I wanted from Da Darklore is a series of essays on the esoteric, weird, and paranormal. I got what I wanted from Darklore: Mar 24, Justin rated it it was amazing.
Something about the weird and strange, no matter how implausible, has always appealed to me. Partially this interest has developed from personal experiences with UFO sightings and other bizarre things outside normal explanations for reality.
Darklore Volume 1
But the primary reason for my fascination is that deep inside I feel there is far more to be experienced than most people ever know. Cracks in the official explanations for reality show through on the fringes of society.
We dull ourselves down through constant exposure to culture, but several hundred years ago we would have been thankful for visitations from our ancestors or discussions with plants. As the intelligence officer Major Murphy told Dr. Jacques Vallee on p. I know that this is the cheap part of the information. Dark Lore Volume 1 is the first of a now four volume series containing articles from the leading writers of fringe science. In Dark Lore Volume 1, Greg has enlisted some of my favorite authors: I would recommend this book as an antidote to someone that has been exposed to mostly bland explanations of reality.
Michael Prescott analyzed how an obsession with the paranormal can drive people insane citing Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, one of the most notable examples of a man driven mad by the etheric.
Why do people reporting alien abductions, near death experiences, psychedelic experiences, Darjlore, etc… all report similar sounds triggering the altered state of consciousness? Martinez challenged typical explanations of literary inspiration by relaying paranormal experiences from authors like Wilde, Poe, Tolstoy, Hemingway, Woolf, Tennison and more. Loren Coleman provided a coherent look at how any information about Bigfoot gets blown out of proportion by the mainstream media.
John Higgs provided one of my favorite essays from the book, looking at similarities between Aliester Crowley and Dr. Tymn recounted the fascinating encounters of linguist professor Neville Whymant with a medium that channeled ancient Chinese claiming to be the spirit of Colume.
Mitch Horowitz penned an entertaining history of Ouija in America. The Emperor laid out evidence that connects many Bigfoot experiences with UFOs much more convincing than you might think.
Mike Jay discussed the ritual use of psychedelic substances in ancient Peru using archeological evidence. My favorite essay was from Michael Grosso who provided some fascinating studies and personal accounts of how the moment of death points towards an afterlife this one is worth the price of the book alone.
Overall, the entire collection was incredibly strong. If you want to be bombarded with a world you dsrklore knew existed… or if you want to expand your knowledge of the unknown I would highly recommend this collection. Jun 21, J. Stone rated it it was amazing. Found out about this from Tool’s newsletter writer, Blair. But forget all that. For me, as a lover of extraterrestrial phenomena, mysticism and magick, this book really delivers and is great for research and debunking mysteries.
Each essay is expertly crafted and passionately written, though some fall a little flat. Datklore 29, Shane Simmons rated it it was amazing Shelves: This books makes for engrossing reading.
The chapters cover quite a wide range of anomalous phenomena, including UFOs, ancient civilizations, hauntings, Bigfoot, and even Ouija boards. I’d recommend this book, and the others in the series, for any student of Fortean phenomena. It’s definitely worth a read. Aug 22, Roman rated it liked it Shelves: Not a brilliant collection, but interesting enough to warrant buying the next volume. If you’re the kind of person who even has a copy of this, I’m sure that at worst you’ll find it enjoyable light reading.
