The Romance of Sorcery

Sax Rohmer [Henry Sarsfield Ward]

"Keenly affected by the cowardly betrayal of his old friends and colleagues, Nostradamus retired from the world. He communicated with no one, but passed his time in study; neither did he deign to take part in the fierce discussions which seethed concerning him. Some few men of spirit and understanding espoused his cause, and Nostradamus was content to leave his defence in the hands of these, and to posterity."

The Romance of Sorcery was written by Sax Rohmer, pseudonym of Henry Sarsfield Ward. Rohmer is best-known for his earlier series of Dr. Fu-Manchu pulp novels. Here he departs into a nonfiction account of various psychical and spiritual topics of interest in early-twentieth century Britain, including chapters on Nostradamus and Madame Blavatsky.
