"Civilisation is disintegrating" Dennis Wheatley: Forces of darkness & light, warring

32 Views

This interview was inexplicably and inexcusably removed by the BBC from its permanent web page about Dennis Wheatley
With the War over and the Cold War getting underway, Wheatley published The Haunting of Toby Jugg in 1948. Featuring a Satanic school, this was inspired by Wheatley's inside knowledge of MI5's investigation of Dartington Hall, a liberal arts-based school in Devon. It was in Jugg that Wheatley broached his great Cold War theme, suggesting that Communism was actually a cover for Satanism, and vice versa.
As a Satanist explains, Satan "mocks those who no longer believe in his existence by having them demonstrate in favour of rule by the Proletariat on the first of May. Have you never realised that it is his anniversary, and that it is born of May-day Eve -- Walpurgis Nacht -- on which we celebrate his festival?" Walpurgis Night or St.Walburga's Eve should be familiar to Wheatley readers from The Devil Rides Out, while May Day, the old pagan festival and more recently international workers' day, was the occasion of a massive military parade of troops, tanks and missiles through Moscow, once a familiar annual sight on British television.

Dennis Wheatley Library of the Occult
Back in the early-1970s Dennis Wheatley was a big name. Now, as far as I can tell, he's pretty much forgotten and books that used to be best-sellers, like To The Devil A Daughter and The Devil Rides Out, go entirely unread. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, since Wheatley was a writer of no great talent, and his books were clunky, lumpy slabs of indigestible narrative, shot through with lashings of black magic and satanism. At the time this was dangerous, edgy stuff, but - largely through Wheatley's own efforts - there's now so much more awareness of magic rituals that his version of it isn't exactly shocking anymore. The Hammer movies of his novels (particularly The Devil Rides Out, adapted by Richard Matheson) are worth seeing - the books aren't worth reading.

However, for all his faults, Wheatley was a genuine student of the occult and he regularly used his high profile to try to educate and inform the general public. His finest moment, in my opinion, was this series of books in 1974-77. Somehow he persuaded Sphere to publish dozens of books - both fiction and non-fiction - on all aspects of the occult, relying solely on his name to sell the things to a mass market.
