  • Author Dion Fortune

    Dion Fortune (born Violet Mary Firth, 1890–1946), founder of the Society of the Inner Light, is recognized as one of the most luminous ?gures of 20th-century esoteric thought. A proli?c writer, pioneer psychologist, powerful psychic, and spiritualist, she dedicated her life to the revival of the Western Mystery Tradition. She was also a member of the Order of the Golden Dawn, whose members included A. E. Waite, Aleister Crowley, and W. B. Yeats.

The Demon Lover was first published in 1927, the same year as H.P. Lovecraft’s The Call of Cthulhu. Dion Fortune was among a generation of occult horror writers that formed popular culture’s obsession with secret societies, vampires, demons, ritual magick, and dark powers lurking in the shadows. What sets Fortune apart from so many of her contemporaries is her deep knowledge of the inner workings of magickal orders, rites, and practices, and her own freethinking on occult subjects, demonstrated in the classic Psychic SelfDefense and The Mystical Qabalah.
