Update Psypioneer Journal News (Update)

(originally posted on 20 Jun 2016)




Latest news re the Psypioneer Journal current and back copies can be found here:

http://www.woodlandway.org/Psypioneer_Journal.htm

Prior to PsyPioneer, there had been a forerunner website publication called Psychic Pioneer from 1999 to 2001, written by Leslie Price, and which included news items. This had been supported on launch by grants from Spiritual Truth Foundation, the College of Psychic Studies and by private donors such as Edwin Butler and Denise Iredell.

PsyPioneer began as a free online monthly newsletter in May 2004 - available on publication to an email subscribers list.

Leslie Price was the founder editor of Psypioneer, and Paul Gaunt took over in July 2005, assuming ownership in February 2006. Much support was given by established UK institutions in the field, such as Society for Psychical Research (SPR), College Of Psychic Studies (CPS), Spiritualists’ National Union (SNU), Churches’ Fellowship for Psychical and Spiritual Studies (CFPSS) and Psychic News (PN).

Circulation reached 480 e-subscribers in 2012.

In addition to circulation to the e-subscribers, PsyPioneer has always been archived on the website of the Woodlands Sanctuary Foundation Inc. in Melbourne, Australia, whose members Garth Willey and Peter Hui provide literary and technical help respectively.

The material in PsyPioneer - now a journal rather than a newsletter - deals with historic personages and organisations in the psychic field, and includes reprints of obituaries and other biographical sketches, old articles, book reviews and original papers. The most influential reprint (in April 2005) was of the Lewis Report into the Hydesville phenomena of 1848.

No particular standpoint is adopted about the phenomena under discussion, and personalities discussed include Spiritualists, Theosophists, Christians, Rationalists and non-committed historians and parapsychologists. Among those in whom we have taken a special interest may be mentioned Andrew Jackson Davis, the Fox sisters, Stainton Moses, Emma Hardinge Britten, Arthur Conan Doyle, and a number of physical mediums.

As reported in the August 2017 edition of Pioneer (Vol 4, No.4) :

Leslie Price has decided he will not continue to publish Psypioneer, following the retirement of Paul Gaunt as editor.
In addition, Garth and Audrey Willey and their colleagues at Woodland Way in Australia have discontinued their website,
which was the home for archived copies of Psypioneer.

However, Marc Demarest and the International Association for the Preservation of Occult and Spiritualist Periodicals (IAPSOP) have kindly offered to host all back issues of Psypioneer in a dedicated section of the IAPSOP web site.

The issues can be accessed via http://psypioneer.iapsop.com/
