How to Live in a Supernatural Universe – Mark Booth AKA Jonathan Black, 21st January 2016.
How to live in a supernatural universe looks at what the wisdom of the secret societies has to teach us in our daily lives. Do we live in a universe in which supernatural powers play a part? Do we all experience the supernatural – but fail to recognise this because we have been conditioned to screen it out? And if we do live in a supernatural universe, how should we behave? The wisdom of the secret societies goes against all common sense, all reason – what is it?
Mark Booth, also known as Jonathan Black, is author of the best selling book The Secret History of the World, The Secret History of Dante and The Sacred History.
“The startling revelations that form the core of this book show the world as deeply strange and mysterious, filled with secrets and codes, with humanity at the heart of a cosmic riddle. Nothing of this scale and ambition has been attempted since Blavatsky’s The Secret Doctrine, and Black arises to the challenge with style, originality and aplomb. Deep, clever, deceptively simple and important, it is indeed an initiatory document.” Graham Hancock, author of Magicians of the Gods, Fingerprints of the Gods and Supernatural on ‘Secret History of the World’.
Mark Booth read Philosophy and Theology at Oxford and has worked in publishing in London for over 30 years. He has edited and published a wide range of figures prominent in British culture, including Barbara Windsor, Peter Kay and Banksy, as well as may leading writers on alternative and spiritual subjects, such as Lorna Byrne, Graham Hancock and Rupert Sheldrake. In 2008 his own book The Secret History of the World was published, becoming a NY a Times bestseller and foreign language editions have been published in over 20 foreign language editions. A companion volume, The Sacred History was published in 2013.
Last year Mark published a short e book on the real-life mysteries surrounding Dante’s descent in to the Inferno – The Secret History of Dante. This is an expanded version of one of the chapters in The Sacred History. It was published to coincide with Dan Brown’s Inferno, and explores why people have always travelled underground in search of higher consciousness.
In September 2010 Mark was recruited by Hodder & Stoughton to launch his own list, which is called Coronet. Authors include Chris Ryan, SAS hero and author of many bestselling thrillers and Lorna Byrne, the Irish mystic, who sees angels in the way the rest of us see rocks and stones and trees, Robert Lomas, sometimes said to be the model for Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon, and co-author of the international bestseller The Hiram Key, Trevor Norton, Emeritus Professor of Marine Biology, and Graham Hancock, whose War God trilogy is a fictionalised account of supernatural forces at work behind the Spanish conquest of Mexico. Mark has also published the follow-up to Fingerprints of the Gods, ‘Magicians of the Gods’.
