At this tier, for a limited time only, you can download an eBook of my out-of-print Conceptions of the Afterlife in Early CivilizationsA new, revised edition will be published next year by Inner Traditions, but until then I'm happy to offer the original here as an exclusive benefit to Patrons as a downloadable PDF.

You'll also have access to my unpublished article, "'A White Man’s Sort of Atmosphere': Racism, Classism, and Religious Intolerance in Mediumistic Afterlife Narratives." It was written for an anthology that never came out, and I've since incorporated it into my new book, The Next World: Extraordinary Experiences of the Afterlife. Consider it a taster!

Your support goes directly toward the costs of researching, writing, and editing my new book, The Historical Anthology of Near-Death Experiences.  As a grateful of acknowledgement of this, in addition to the main tier benefits listed above all Patrons will also receive:
  • An acknowledgement in the "thank you" page of the forthcoming Anthology.
  • A rare, previously unknown or little-known historical NDE every month (via email) - giving a taster of what's to come in the new book
  • Regular updates about my publications, interviews, media appearances, book reviews etc.

At this level you can download a free PDF eBook of The Next World: Extraordinary Experiences of the Afterlife!

You'll also get a PDF the unpublished complete version of my work on "Greek and Egyptian Dreams in Two Ancient Ptolemaic Archives." It explores the individual, cultural, and (possibly) universal layers of meaning in the dreams of an ancient Egyptian priest and a Greek temple recluse. At 61 pages, this version is much longer and of greater depth than the article published in Dreaming. It includes all of the actual dreams in translation, together with a timechart and illustrations.
