Features

30 Psychic Spies (cover story)
Remote Viewing was once a cherished project of the US military and intelligence services, a psi technique that appeared actually to work - so why was it ended? Where did its scriers go? And what has become of the psi spies in the post-9/11 worlds? Jim Schnabel provides the answers.

38 A 100,000-Year-Old Civilisation?
Colin Wilson celebrates the pioneering work of the late Stan Gooch, and explains how Gooch's theories about Neanderthal civilisation inspired his own work - even as they were being dismissed by palaentologists. Ironically, some of Gooch's claims have since been confirmed from archaeological evidence.

46 The Doubly Divided Self
Before his recent death, maverick psychologist Stan Gooch sent us one of his final articles, which we're pleased to publish for the first time. Controversially, he suggests that the roots of human conflict can be traced to mankind's dual ancestry and divided brain.

48 Strange Stories from a World of Wonder
Matt Salusbury concludes his nostalgic look at forteana for the children of the 1970s with a collection of sea serpents, emu wars and unusual odysseys, as presented in the pages of World of Wonder.
