A quite interesting dictionary of all things occult, from Edgar Cayce to the more mythical magical and occult practices. It's quite a collection of random bits, but they're interesting. The only real flaw is that sometimes the type is sort of smudgy when in greyed out boxes that are supposed to highlight an interesting fact - and do the opposite by smudging it out into nearly unreadable squiggles.

This is an interesting read. A brief encyclopedia of occult topics. For those interested in learning about occultism, this could be a good place to start; although, primary sources may be fruitful as well.
