The books enjoy a huge cult reputation and even nearly two decades on, a frenzied debate on who the actual Black Alchemist might have been, with Collins's friend and colleague David Southwell even claiming that he is now dead, his ashes scattered in a rose garden in the churchyard at Seddlescombe in Sussex. Many who have tried to expose the Black Alchemist as a hoax have ended up concluding that Collins is telling the truth.

This book can be taken a number of ways. The author delivers this as fact, but the skeptics would likely deride this as overblown fantasy. This actually detracts nothing from the storytelling. Believe what you will, this is an accessible and compelling read. It's packed with a great lead that draws you to the end willingly. It is a shame that the book is sufficiently old, and was only subject to a short print run, that it is not easily available. It also suffered from religious persecution during its print run. Grab a copy if you can. It's worth the money - and I suspect this is a sleeper of a topic for a movie.

Andrew Collins and companions roam an area of England in search of an elusive character who is leaving occult items at various locations of power in an attempt to complete an occult ritual. Collins and company are always one step behind the Black Alchemist and the tale culminates in the Great Storm of 87 with Collins never learning the identity of the Black Alchemist.

Truth, fiction, or something in between? Read it and decide for yourself. There is supposed to be a reissue of the book in the near future. See Andrew Collins site.
