Under the Peter Saxon name there was also released a horror series about a group of occult agents who fought the forces of evil with their own magic. I know there were at least four in the series but I don't know what number this one is. It was the first I ever read in the series, though, and it was very good. I really went out looking for the others in the series after that. This one was even a little sexy.

The real author of this was apparently Martin Thomas.

I love used book stores. Madison has several excellent ones, mostly windowless, narrow-aisled affairs filled with high shelves, silence, and that sad-but-lovely smell of decaying pages. When I'm in such a place, I make for the fantasy section, eager to get my hands on some unknown chunk of 60's-70's crap fantasy. I love it. It's what I cut my teeth on as a teenager, and if I see a beguiling cover, I'll grab the book and buy it, no questions asked.

The Curse of Rathlaw certainly looked promising:

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's like a Hammer Horror film in written form. Occult detectives, curses, witches, etc. It's fun to read, and I enjoyed the writing. I will be looking for the other books in this series, hopefully they have some of the same merits.

Just some bland 60s occult story. Not even all that fun to read. But at least it was quick.
