Although I now write mostly fiction over the years I have written numerous articles on subjects including archaeology, myth and religion, folklore, traditional cosmology and shamanism. This includes a few booklets and a few books. Most of this stuff is now out of print but some articles can be found on the internet and others are available here as free pdf downloads. Two books are still available and can be purchased direct from Heart of Albion Press, as can another with a contribution from me. Click on the titles to find out more.
