Collected Essays, Volume VI by John Scales Avery

children

A new freely downloadable book

I would like to announce the publication of a collection of the articles and book announcements which I have written during the last two years. Almost all of these have been published in Countercurrents or in TMS Weekly Digest or both. I am extremely grateful to Editor Binu Mathew and to Editor Antonio C.S. Rosa for their support. Indeed, the whole world ought to be grateful to them for their heroic and vitally important work.

The book may be freely downloaded and circulated from the following link:
