The Red Pill
The Black Alchemist is a psychic questing book by author and researcher Andrew Collins.
The description on the back of the book reads:
"The Black Alchemist is not just based on fact - it is a very real account of very real events.
The story begins in May 1985 when a powerful vision leads the author and his psychic colleague to uncover an inscribed stone spearhead buried as part of a warped occult ritual.
Removing this strange artefact opens up a direct link with its maker - a lone figure practising a debased and very corrupt form of black alchemy, unused for nearly two thousand years.
Fresh visions and haunting dreams direct the pair to further desecrated holy places and more concealed artefacts, unaware that their adversary is now hunting them.. and getting closer.
Soon afterwards the confrontations begin - supernatural confrontations resulting in some of the most disturbing displays of psychic powers ever recorded.
Arcane magic, modern-day sorcery and dark forces combine together as the author and the psychic attempt to unmask their adversary.
Then, during the early hours of Friday, 16 October 1987 - as Southern Britain is hit by a hurricane of awesome strength - individuals across the country experience the same nightmare. One single vision that reveals the hidden secrets of the hurricane and the true, unequalled power of The Black Alchemist."
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 cult is still practising. Still butchering animals, ritually, especially at this time of year (but the press won't report it). They are known as the Friends of Hecate. They were set up by that dark, dark figure (and blood-liner, through-and-through - his family is a political dynasty - and Hitler appeaser, during the war), whom Churchill described as one who 'gives sodomy a bad name', Lord Hailsham, when he was Lord Chancellor. There are strange lights and noises that come from that wood, as though UFOs might have something to do with it. I have my theories about what it's about.
There is a group of people who monitor the woods - Clapham and Patching woods very thoroughly, determined ultimately to expose them.
I grew up near the tiny hamlet of Clapham. The parish is called Clapham and Patching, Patching being even smaller - perhaps a few dozen people live there. However, Peter Carroll, who wrote a seminal work on the occult, was born in that parish. Suffice to say that the story, here, is far from over. Another book on the subject - featuring the strange and possibly ritualistic spate of human and animal disappearances in the woods in the late 1970's and early 1980's is The Demonic Connection by Toyne Newton and Charles Walker.
The woods are truly, truly enchanting. (The sacred tree, where the cult worships, always has signs of their practices [once, four cats heads were found, having been used as candle-stick holders] at its foot.) But along has come Agenda 21 and now they are all being cleared for development.
My feeling is that there is something key, about the communing that goes on here, to what is going on in the world now.
Sussex is reckoned by some to be the darkest (and also for some, the most beautiful - and now, threatened) county of mainland England, the last to convert to Christianity.
