Features

30 Conjuring Asia (cover story)
Marvel's Doctor Strange is just the latest in a long line of seekers after truth who have headed to the Mystic East in search of spiritual enlightenment and supernatural powers. Chris Goto-Jones recalls the Western magicians who transformed themselves into turban-sporting seers, and examines the appeal of Orientalism's magical myth.

38 Happy Old Christmas
You thought it was all over, but due to the Orthodox refusal to accept the new fangled Gregorian calendar, many people - from Margate to Memphis - will still be celebrating Christmas in January. Ted Harrison goes in search of some stubborn old traditions...

42 The Occult Life of Montague Summers
Was Montague Summers a priest or a dabbler in the dark arts? With one foot in the Catholic Church and another in the world of the supernatural, he has been claimed as both. Brian Regal explores the real 'occult life' of one of the great eccentrics of English letters.
