cover illust. by Brian Froud, (Allhallows is a residential centre for research into magic in Somerset within sight of Glastonbury Tor. It is run by former psychiatrist Martin Ellis, who has become deeply involved in the occult as a means to rediscovering an old answer to the ancient anxieties of mankind. His success has aroused the interest of an expert on Arthurian legend and freelance journalist, Geoffrey, who comes to spend some time studying the phenomena of Allhallows and taking part in the activities. But he finds, amidst the strange, timeless atmosphere of the old house, the baffling maze and weird sculptures in the garden, and some harrowing experiences with a new mind-blowing drug that the questions he had at first posed lead to answers and other questions more disturbing than he had ever dreamed.) described by the author as "not fictitious in the pure sense" & as containing several events which - "...did happen - Even the Ritual of the Grail was once enacted at Tintagel. Over the years I have seen cause to believe that it was a valid magical working." - this is more than a 'novel' in the conventional sense with the author participating as a major character in the story. (Geffrey Ashe also lived at the foot of Glastonbury Tor), some impressions on front cover from mathematical workings on paper supported by the book & a slightly cocked spine, 264 pages including author's note on last page which refers to tarot arcana for readers with occult interests.
