.Moon Magic. $18.95.
Moon Magic is the sequel to Dion Fortune’s most acclaimed novel, The Sea Priestess. It continues the story of her hero, Vivien Le Fay Morgan, this time in the guise of Lilith Le Fay, setting up a temple dedicated to the worship of Isis in London. There, through telepathic means, she attracts the service of the dour, repressed, yet physically-gifted Dr Rupert Malcolm. He acts as a participant in her magical workings– a priest to her priestess in their astral temple. During the course of her magical work, Le Fay breaks down Malcolm’s querulous personality, as well as helps him to rediscover his emotional nature. At the apogee of their magical practice, he assumes the role of god to Le Fay’s goddess. They combine their power in a supreme act of magic to benefit the whole human race.
This book was published posthumously from extensive notes and manuscripts Fortune left behind. It is the last in a series of fiction and nonfiction that she planned as a course in the study of magic. Fortune claimed that she presented her theories in nonfiction, but that her fictional works were clear, practical manuals for putting those theories into practice.
