Features

32 The Madame and Her Masters (Cover Story)
To most people, Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky is a colourful fake who fooled gullible occultists until she was rumbled by the Society for Psychical Research. Gary Lachman argues that this received wisdom is based on an oft-repeated lie that disguises a far more complicated truth, and that it’s time to reassess the legacy of HPB.

38 Diana's Damned Dresses
Is Princess Diana reaching out from beyond the grave to blight the lives of those who bought up her wardrobe in the hope of exploiting it? Ted Harrison reports on the curse of Diana's dresses...

42 Angel and the Fire Demon
A series of unexplained fires has plagued a family in south-eastern Turkey for almost eight months. Fortean Times correspondent Paul Cropper tracked the family to Cizre, on the Syrian border.
