Blackwood, Algernon: Julius LeVallon // The Bright Messenger. v1. 25 Jan 2022

Julius LeVallon and its sequel The Bright Messenger deal with reincarnation and the possibility of a new, mystical evolution of human consciousness.

JULIUS LEVALLON:
“LeVallon reminds Mason of a time eons ago, which he calls the Temple Days, when the two of them, and a girl, conducted a forbidden experiment which failed. But it had released the elemental powers of Wind and Fire which remained untethered. Over the eons LeVallon had tried to channel those powers back to their domain but had always failed because the channel — the girl — was not present. Now, at last, after all these millennia, the three spirits are together again and LeVallon must face the ultimate challenge. Does he succeed? That’s the climax of the book.”
(— Mike Ashley)

THE BRIGHT MESSENGER:
Edward Fillery and Paul Devonham have a new patient at their Spiritual Clinique, a young man raised by an eccentric mentor who seems to be suffering from a split personality. One part of him manifests as a simple country lad by the name of Julian LeVallon, but there is another force within him that Dr. Fillery quickly names “N.H.” and seeks to develop. Dr. Devonham, on the other hand, is convinced that “N.H.” is the unhealthy side, that LeVallon is the true personality and must be encouraged to become dominant. But the young man is more than he seems, for he is not entirely human. And when “N.H.” does take control, no one is prepared for the results. Everyone is changed — by the bright messenger.

============
One of the foremost British writers of supernatural tales in the twentieth century, Algernon Blackwood (1869–1951) wrote stories in which the slow accumulation of telling details produced a foreboding atmosphere of almost unendurable tension. Though he wrote a number of horror stories, his most typical work seeks less to frighten than to induce a sense of awe. The literary critic S. T. Joshi stated, “His work is more consistently meritorious than any weird writer’s except Dunsany’s.”

Blackwood’s literary renown began in 1908 with the publication of a highly successful collection of stories, John Silence — Physician Extraordinary, featuring a “psychic doctor.” His two best known stories are probably “The Willows” and “The Wendigo”.
