"In the depths of a Parisian cellar, Madame Yvonne Duplessis conducts fingertip vision experiments; New York in the 1950s and Irish-born medium Eileen J Garrett is exploring the psychic potential of LSD with Aldous Huxley; Winnipeg in the 1930s and the name of the French Astronomer and psychical researcher, Flammarion, appears as a teleplasm on the back of a séance cabinet."
The book also features an index of earlier works.
