Abstract

Dennis Wheatley (1897–1977), the author of a number of immensely popular ‘black magic’ novels, such as The Devil Rides Out (1934), did a great deal to shape the popular image of occultism and Satanism in twentieth-century Britain, from the 1930s through to the occult revival of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Although he portrayed Satanism as evil, the ambience of his books made it seem strangely seductive and luxurious.
