The View Over Atlantis
John Michell, the cult figure and man-about-Notting-Hill who brought "ancient sciences" to the New Age, has died of lung cancer aged By a coincidence which the man known as "the New Merlin" would have loved, his death came just as subscribers to Fortean Times, the house magazine of collectors of oddities, were about to receive the issue which celebrates the 40th anniversary of the publication of his counterculture classic, The View Over Atlantis. His first book, The Flying Saucer Vision , had been unorthodox enough, but his follow-up put firmly on the map the world of ley lines, sacred engineering and other magical relics of a lost civilisation. It was all the more unexpected in being written by a self-effacing Old Etonian and Cambridge graduate. An English Figure was the title chosen by the small press publisher John Nicholson for a book in tribute to his friend.
