* ''Literature/WarInHeaven'' (1930) The HolyGrail exists and is presently in the parish church of the small English village of Fardles. This becomes known and the race is on between good guys and bad guys to get it.
* ''Literature/ManyDimensions'' (1931) 
Somewhere, there is a Sufi order that guards a small cubical stone. The Stone was once mounted in King Solomon's crown. It contains the Tetragrammaton, the Name of God. It grants the holder miraculous powers, but also brings divine judgment down on them. Watch it get passed back and forth between good guys and bad guys, and see the results.
* ''Literature/ThePlaceOfTheLion'' (1931) A small English village is plagued by mysterious destructive forces. This is because a retired philosopher has (accidentally or deliberately) called the Creator/{{Plato}}nic archetypes into the world, and they are absorbing their ectypes. E.g. Power gets personified as the titual lion, and starts prowling the neighborhood. Everywhere it goes, it soaks up all the examples of power, starting with electrical power and the strength of buildings. Then more personifications show up, like Cunning and Speed and Beauty. What do you do when the world starts to run out of adjectives?
* ''Literature/TheGreaterTrumps'' (1932) A young lawyer is delighted to discover that his fiancee's father has inherited the original [[TarotMotifs Tarot]] deck. The father doesn't know about the deck's magical power, but the young lawyer does, and is eager to get his hands on the deck and start experimenting.
* ''Literature/ShadowsOfEcstasy'' (1933) Nigel Considine, an English adventurer in the British African colonies, claims to have discovered, and to teach, a way of turning all the emotional energy created by joy, love, and beauty into strength and life, a path to immortality. He has started a political movement, the "African High Executive," dedicated to overthrowing not only colonialism bu "rationalist civilization." Does he really have the power and immortality he claims? And is he [[MessianicArchetype good]] or [[DarkMessiah evil]]?
* ''Literature/DescentIntoHell'' (1937) In the prosperous London suburb of Battle Hill, noted poet and playwrite Peter Stanhope helps a local theatre group put on a pretty little play. While they work at that, various living and dead people find their ways to heaven and hell, young women are terrorized by dopplegangers, a man meets the literal [[ImaginaryFriend Girl of His Dreams]], and we learn what Lilith is doing nowadays.
