The Absolute Elsewhere: Esoteric Literature

The Absolute Elsewhere: Fantastic, Visionary, and Esoteric Literature in the 1960s and 1970s
by R. T. Gault

"This is a bibliography of visionary, occult, new age, fringe science, strange and even crackpot works published between 1945 and 1988. Added to the mix are some other works which may relate to them, or at least give a sense of the spirit of the times. The main emphasis is upon works produced between 1960 and 1980, as the subtitle suggests."

"Currently available are files covering the years from 1945 to 1979. There are two small files which covers selected titles published before 1949. Keep in mind that the project has been in the works a long time, and continues to change, often on a daily basis."

Juri sent me this link, and I noticed it was already familiar to me by its Morning of the Magicians entry. I quoted this book on I, The Mutant?

On these subjects, I recommend you also to check out Gary Valentine Lachman's Turn Off Your Mind. The Mystic Sixties and the Dark Side of the Age of Aquarius.
