Entranced by Eyes of Evil: Tales of Mesmerism and Mystery

EEE promo

Animal Magnetism — Mesmerism — Hypnosis

More than one name has been applied to the phenomenon of one person putting another into a deep trance–and into a deep state of submission. But how far does this power truly go? Can a devious hypnotist entrance an unknowing subject from across a room? Can a mesmerized person be compelled to commit murder? Can a hypnotic spell extend beyond death? In the 1800s, such questions had no certain answers, and the extreme possibilities were explored by fiction writers such as Edgar Allan Poe, Louisa May Alcott, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Ambrose Bierce. These and fourteen more authors spin tales about unbounded hypnotism in Entranced by Eyes of Evil: Tales of Mesmerism and Mystery.
