Dennis Hauck is pretty much the public face of the alchemy scene. He's a bit too "New-Agey" for my tastes, but his writing is quite detailed.

This author manages to combine several different areas, including mythology, archetypes, the writings of the Emerald Tablet - and even the journeys of several celebrities.

I recommend it primarily for the explanation of the seven stages of alchemy, which you can apply to your life v...more
