The classic occult novel by Dion Fortune, first published in 1935.


This 1935 English novel is a doorway into key teachings of the Western Mystery Tradition. Dion Fortune used her occult novels as a vehicle to introduce newcomers into a world of magical beliefs, scattering information and ritual instruction throughout their pages. The Goat Foot God is no exception. It traces the spiritual awakening of Hugh Paston, a wealthy, bored, boring, and desperately unhappy man, and along the way the reader is taught key lessons of the occult. Violet Mary Firth Evans (better known as Dion Fortune), was a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn who went on to found the Society of the Inner Light, and her books are classics to this day.
