Thanks you guys.

Looking forward to the Weinberger interview. It's a really good book, one 
of those books that are about way more than their subject.

Could you get the author to have the publisher send them?

Not always. The bigger the publisher, the less likely it is.

book by Trav S.D. about silent film comedy (his first one about vaudeville 
we did an interview about topic 263)

Who are the deciders now?

Is it safe to assume that we'll soon be treated to another installment
of <bruces> and <jonl>'s annual State of the World?

I'm looking forward to it!

No. We do conversations here, not reviews. Check <books.> for that.

The book did get some good discussion in the "books" conference in the 
"Michael Chabon" topic, 1573.

Here's the review posted at Amazon:

This gem-like, concise anthology provides thoughtful people with both
an introduction to the paranormal and a reason to take a fresh look at
it.

 Nostradamus...channeling...Atlantis...divination. Most serious people
consider such topics nonsense. But look again. Writing with
intellectual verve and a deeply critical mind, religious thinker
Richard Smoley explores and reconsiders the supernatural in history
and
today.

We are often conditioned to think of the Judeo-Christian tradition as
the only valid, historically accurate, and rational spiritual
philosophy. Occultism, magic, and the esoteric are, by contrast,
considered illegitimate, delusional, and lacking in intrinsic worth.
Supernatural challenges this prejudice, revealing that Western occult
traditions are richer and more historically impactful than most of us
imagine. The book reveals hidden diamonds and neglected ideas that
characterize the magical tradition in the West.

For any reader, at any level of experience, who has ever been curious
about an arcane subject – from psychical powers to secret societies –
here is a book that gives a complete yet precise, critical, yet
serious, and always respectful account of topics from the unseen
world.
Supernatural is a brilliant primer to the occult and magical
traditions of the West.
