He fell in love with magic, myth and folklore from his childhood days spent in the land of William Wallace and Bonnie Prince Charlie and his Highlanders; fishing and trekking through the rich geography and reading works of William Shakespeare, Madame d'Aulnoy, and Sir Walter Scott. With his wife Leonore Blanche Alleyne, Lang in adapted and translated many stories originating from numerous locations including Africa, China, India, Europe, North America, Japan, Russia, etc.

Lang himself authored many fiction and non-fiction works such as Prince Prigio and Prince Ricardo of Pantouflia, as well as historical texts including A Short History of Scotland. He penned his views on religion, myths, and magic under such titles as Custom and Myth, Myth, Ritual, and Religion, and The Making of Religion.
