34 The Magical Battle of Britain (Cover Story)
By September 1940, the Battle of Britain was at its height in the skies over southern England, as Britain stood alone against Hitler's threat of invasion. Seventy years on, we commemorate this legendary victory - but, ask Dave Evans and David Sutton, were Churchill's celebrated Few given a magical helping hand by the nation's occultists?

42 Poetry and the Paranormal
Authors have always been pestered with that perennial question: "Where do you get your ideas from?" SD Tucker examines some very peculiar answers from the likes of Ted Hughes, Sylvia Plath and Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
