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.
