(first nine chapters of Sabazius) in one sitting. The cosmological
more than a hint of the superman theme such as you find in Olaf
Stapledon's writings. As for all the oblique teaching - the whole
book is really a Teach Yourself Handbook - that and the sly wit
reminded me very pleasantly of Ouspensky. I'm sure you have a
cult book on your hands."
Brian W. Aldiss
"A work of
creative imagination that takes the reader into the experience
of another world,
a world that is here around us at all times, but which is difficult
to perceive for it is beyond the scope of our normal limits
of consciousness. The book takes the reader beyond those limits
as it tells the story of Peter Derwent, his meeting with Alexis
Sabazius, a modern-day magus and Man of Feeling. The end result
is a remarkable conveyance of experience from author to reader
and is a true work of art."

An Introduction to Sabazius
At a business conference in South Africa, Peter Derwent meets Alexis
Sabazius. Disillusioned with his own way of life, Derwent is fascinated
by the Greek's vitality and strength. After a series of curious, mystical
experiences, he learns that Sabazius is 'A Man of Feeling', and asks
to become his pupil. Sabazius is the story of Derwent's apprenticeship
Douglas Lockhart has not written a conventional novel;
rather he has used a fictional form to define and elucidate a complete
- a philosophy of 'heart', 'will' and 'doubt', a seeing beyond normal
perception which everyone has experienced, with varying degrees of
consciousness, at some time.
Sabazius is at once a complex, mystical journey into the unexplored
potential of the human mind and body, a satisfying and often witty
account of a teacher-pupil relationship that will appeal to readers
off Carlos Castaneda, and a forceful tale of discovery and danger.
It is also a work that will linger on in the reader's mind, prompting
him to ask some fundamental and often disturbing questions about himself
and his view of the world around him.
