More About the Author

In 1962 I came to the U.S. from England, where I'd written comedy scripts and was personal scriptwriter for a popular British comedian. Interested in the occult for over sixty years, in the past fifty years I've had over fifty books published (fiction and non-fiction), with nearly two million copies in print and translated into seventeen foreign languages. I've received awards for my work and had books featured in several national book clubs. I was Technical Director for movies, working with Orson Wells, John Carradine, Vincent Price and William Friedkin (director of The Exorcist). Of Romany descent, I'm an authority on Gypsies and have written several books on them. I've lectured at colleges and universities and been the subject of articles in newspapers and magazines: New York Times, Los Angeles Times, New York Daily News, New York Sunday News, National Observer, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Look Magazine, Cosmopolitan, True, and others.

I've appeared on national television and radio talk shows and been on BBC-TV, England, RAI-TV, Italy, and CBC-TV, Canada. I appeared extensively on stage in England and played small character parts in movies in America. I taught courses at colleges and universities and have been a featured speaker at conferences and workshops. I'm listed in reference works including Contemporary Authors, Who's Who In America, Men of Achievement, and International Authors' and Writers' Who's Who.

Recent books include Atomic Sunrise, The Spirit Book, Buckland's Book of Spirit Communications, Golden Illuminati, and Solitary Seance. A DVD version of my Wicca video has also recently been released: Rebirth of the Old Religion. A prolific author, I just signed a multi-book contract with Penguin/Berkley for a Victorian mystery series. Today I live on a farm in north-central Ohio. Photo Credit: Gregory Ford

Format: Paperback
Although I cannot recommend all of Mr. Buckland's books, this and "Doors to Other Worlds" are two of his very best. This book serves to dispel some common myths about spirit communication (i.e. Ouija, seances, automatic writing etc.) and teaches you the reality of the art. It begins with an outline of the 5 levels of the spirit world and a thorough discussion of each, then moves on to discuss the history of the Spiritualist movement and religion. Buckland offers definitions of many common terms, such as clairaudience and channeling, and offers advice for doing each. At the end there is a FAQ covering such topics as life after death, angels, and possessions. I would suggest buying both this and "Doors to Other Worlds" (an expanded version) if you are interested in the truth and methods of spirit communication.
