The Ancients stayed close to Nature, thought with her, and without extraordinary contrivances, they played with matter.

Initiate in and founder of several secret societies, Dion Fortune wrote worthy books on kabbalah and tarot. Her novels purport to encode esoteric doctrines into their plots. The only knowledge I found encoded in The Winged Bull, however, is that Dion Fortune was a one-trick pony as a novelist. The plot is almost exactly the same as that of The Goat Foot God. Stick to her short fiction about Dr. Taverner.
