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 copies of the books may still be obtainable from various outlets, and some articles are available here as free pdf downloads.
