List Rules Authors from any time who wrote about the occult, mysticism or anything supernatural

A list of supernatural writers specializing in the occult and other hidden knowledge, including mysticism and the arcane. All genres have been included, although the majority of the writers on this list focus on non-fiction studies of cabalistic, hermetic, and (dare we say) magical subject matter. Such subjects include alchemy, astrology, the paranormal, and general theories as to how religion can mesh with science. The spiritual philosophies and historic literature written by these authors is some of the best and well worth looking at if one has a growing interest in the occult and supernatural.
