Treadwell’s presents: Ian “Cat” Vincent in “Science Fiction’s Gifts to Paganism”

We know some of you live far away and for those who live close by, we know it’s not always possible to meet us at our Store Street quarters. So we decided to share a part of our weekly in-house lecture series with you online. The lecture we share today took place at Treadwell’s on February 12, 2015. Our speaker for the night was Cat Vincent, a life long student of the occult who is also interested in pop culture and myth making. In this lecture he asks ‘what has sci-fi given to modern paganism?’. Science fiction explores human and spiritual possibilities through its created realms, its other realities. It critiques our current world and, in some cases, offers inspiration.

So enjoy, be inspired and may you never thirst,

The Treadwell’s Team


Treadwell’s is  a bookshop and cultural centre for people interested in esotericism, culture, religion and spirituality.  We are a boutique-sized browser’s paradise. Paganism, wicca, and druidry, but also literature, history, culture and classics. We sell secondhand and new books, rare and unusual, as well as bargain finds.

  • Bookshop: wonderful books – in store or in our online shop
  • Events: talks and lectures on paganism, esotericism and courses to learn more
  • Tarot readings: we are famed for our world-class tarot readers
  • Information resource: for scholars, media or writers, and people making personal explorations

The shop is open seven days a week, with lectures and events most evenings, and our online shop is available to you 24 hours a day in the comfort of your home.  If you are looking for information on any aspect of Western pagan spirituality or the esoteric traditions of Europe, we can help.

We look forward to meeting you,
