Features

32 The Serpents of Sweden (Cover Story)
Sweden is noted for its treasure-hoarding dragons and sea monsters, but could it also be home to a flesh-and-blood giant serpent? Richard Svensson follows the trail of the legendary lindorm.

40 The Occult World of CG Jung
While the materialistic mainstream has never accepted the groundbreaking work of Carl Gustav Jung, his influence has been profound, says Gary Lachman - and nowhere more noticeably than in the psychologist's ambivalent involvement in the arena of mysticism and magic.

46 The Lost Children of Hamelin
On 26 June, the German town of Hamelin celebrates Rat Catcher's Day. Maria J Perez Cuervo asks what really happened there, and who was the mysterious Pied Piper?
