Journals/Magazines

  • Brian was fortunate to appear in an article in the September-October, 2009Journal of Anomalous Sciences edition of The Journal Of Anomalous Sciences web-based magazine. The article was born from information he gathered for his group's handbook, information he felt all his investigators needed to know in dealing with the basics of science. The article was titled "The Science of Ghost Hunting and Paranormal Investigation" and focused on a brief history of how science began in the paranormal field, an overview of the scientific method and how ghost investigation fits in, and flaws that hold the paranormal field back. It was a great moment for Brian to realize one of his dreams of appearing in a scientific Journal.
  • Brian wrote two articles for Cryptid Culture Magazine. Cryptid Culture MagazineThe first one appeared in issue number 4 in November of 2016 with an article that discussed the strane story of the Loveland Frog of Loveland, Ohio fame. His second appearance came with issue number 7 in November of 2017 with an article discussed mysterious black panther sightings and how they might be explained.
  • Brian has appeared in two issues of Skepitcal Inquirer Magazine. Skeptical Inquirer MagazineA favorable review of my book, Handbook for the Amateur Cryptozoologist appeared in the New and Notable section of the July/August 2014 edition of the magazine. Skeptical Inquirer? Yes, to have a book based on cryptozoology to be viewed favorably by the largest skeptical organization in the world is a huge honor. It would be far too easy to have others in the cryptid field give their stamp of approval for a book like this, but to appeal to true science and balanced-minded thinking was the goal with this book. I also provided a book review for Benjamin Radford's book, Investigating Ghosts: The Scientific Search for Spirits.
  • Brian appeared in the seventh issue of Beyond Parazine, a paranormal web-based magazine that is based in the United Kingdom. Skeptical Inquirer MagazineThe issue was released in October, 2014. This magazine was a major sponsor for Paracon UK that took place in November of 2014 in which John Sabol was attending. The article in which Brian appeared served as a "who's who" for the "Ghost Excavation" team lead by John Sabol and Mary Becker.
