My work isn't solely about near-death experiences, and my background is actually Egyptian Archaeology.  My first published article was in the psychology journal Dreaming, and was called "Greek and Egyptian Dreams in Two Ptolemaic Archives: Individual and Cultural Layers of Meaning." It was based on my Egyptology thesis, A Comparison of Dreams in Two Ptolemaic Archives.  

That version - which has never been published - was very different and much longer.  In addition to exploring the dreams in the archives of a Greek recluse and an Egyptian priest in relation to ancient dream books, it also includes attempts at Jungian and Freudian analysis.  And it reproduces all of the actual dreams in translation, together with a timechart and illustrations, 61 pages total.  A PDF copy is yours for a pledge of $3.50 per month - together with all the benefits listed below.

My first book on near-death experience across cultures started life as my Ph.D thesis, Universalism and Culture-Specificity in Conceptions of the Afterlife in Early Civilizations and Near-Death Experience.  Admittedly not a very catchy title.

In writing the book version, I had to delete a lot of great material - including entire chapters on afterlife descriptions in spiritual mediumship, and in memories of states between lives in reincarnation reports. This version includes those "lost" sections, as well as more detail about the afterlife beliefs of the different cultures, taking more texts into account.  It's a huge, 2-volume work totaling 460 pages.  Yours for a pledge of $7 per month or more - and you also get all the other benefits listed below.
