This page lists my books, book chapters, journal papers, and unpublished conference presentations in psychical research / parapsychology and anthropology. Items are grouped topically under four headings: Reincarnation (Psychical Research / Parapsychology), Reincarnation (Anthropology), General Anthropology, and History of Parapsychology, and appear in reverse-chronological order. All except books are posted in PDF format for easy viewing and download.

My book reviews are listed on a separate page.

I Saw cover

Coming soon, a new book by Erlendur Haraldsson and me about children’s reincarnation experiences. The first two thirds of the book is by Erlendur. He describes cases of children who remember previous lives, mostly in Sri Lanka and Lebanon, and other survival phenomena, such as apparitions and mediumship, that he has investigated over the years. In the last third of the book, I bring in cross-cultural data, new cases and analysis, and thoughts on the meaning of it all. The book is with the publisher, White Crow Press, but we do not yet have a publication date. Stay tuned!
