Walter B. GibsonIt's midnight, so here we go with a new Magic Monday. The picture is of Walter B. Gibson, one of the few professional stage magicians who was also a genuine occultist -- his 1966 book The Complete Illustrated Book of the Psychic Sciences, written with his wife Litzka, is a good summary of the state of popular occultism on the eve of the 1970s occult revival -- and also, of course, the pulp writer responsible for that iconic figure, The Shadow. ("Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows...")

Ask me anything about occultism and I'll do my best to answer it. Any question received by midnight Monday Eastern time will get an answer, though it may be Tuesday sometime before I get to them all.

I've had several people ask about tipping me for answers here, and though I certainly don't require that I won't turn it down. You can use the button below to access my online tip jar. 

With that said, have at it! 

***This Magic Monday is now closed to new questions. See you next week!***
