Hi Kathy Actually you could have discovered that from my post, where I did list "pieces by other contributors". I sympathise with your caution in these things but make a couple of points. By no means is this a book (or a series) uncritically promoting weirdness. Personally I wouldn't feel comfortable in that company. The subject spectrum and tone ar both broadly fortean, with the absence of ideology that implies, and quite a few of the articles are highly analytical. I'm sure you'd be interested in at least some of them. As for the names, well, you know me (whether that's a recommendation or not I'm not sure!) and you surely know Nigel Watson who has been publishing in the field longer than I have. Greg Taylor (editor) has posted on this list many times (though not so recently). So with Picknet and Prince known to you that's fully 40% of the author list.
