ESP and Psychokinesis as Viewed by Modern Parapsychologists

A Listmania! list by Sylvia Engdahl (Eugene, OR USA)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "These are some of the most recent and still-current books about psi phenomena -- telepathy, clairvoyance (remote viewing), precognition and psychokinesis -- from the standpoint of scientists and other serious researchers, mainly those connected with universities. Neither psychic healing (which I believe in) nor investigation of "ghosts" (which I don't) is covered by this list. Readers often ask how much of what's said about psi in my novels is true; these books will give an idea of where to draw the line between present knowledge and fictional extrapolation."
