Peter Kolosimo – Not Of This World

Posted by demonik on January 19, 2012

Peter Kolosimo – Not Of This World    ( Sphere, 1971, 1977: originally Sugar Editore, Milan, 1969)



Translated by A. D. Hills


The ‘astronauts’ of ancient Japan, Mexico and the Sahara … the mysterious Great Wall of Peru … the legends of Mu and Atlantis… the astronomical clock at Stonehenge … the extra-terrestrial giants described in the Popol Vuh, ancient bible of the Maya Indians.

NOT OF THIS WORLD is a revolutionary survey of the evidence that a highly advanced technological people from another solar system had contact with our planet in the prehistoric past. The author backs his argument with an impressive array of fact drawn from history, myth and archaeology, and a unique collection of drawings
and photographs.

Many myths have grown up around the activities of the Hell-Fire Club, deep in the caves at the heart of West Wycombe Hill. The mysterious rites, Satanic practices and masked orgies of some of the most elevated figures in the land – including the Prime Minister – captured the public imagination.
This book reveals the fascinating truth behind the legends of the infamous club.

Mary Shelley – Frankenstein [#39]  (Sphere, 1976)

Mary Shelley Frankenstein Sphere

“I suddenly beheld the figure of a man, at some distance, advancing towards me with superhuman speed. He bounded over the crevices in the ice, among which I had walked with caution; his stature also, as he approached, seemed to exceed that of a man. I was troubled: a mist came over my eyes and I felt a faintness seize me.’

Such is Dr Frankenstein’s horrified reaction to the sudden encounter with the monster he has created. Filled with remorse at the ghastly results of his experiment, he feels that he must make amends…

Frankenstein is Volume 39 in the Dennis Wheatley Library of the Occult
