Most of my notes and written materials remain either unpublished, or as part of posts on either Aeclectic's TarotForum or on forum.tarothistory.com (on the first alone I have over 200 000 words).
The reviews and papers listed below are in addition to my Reading the Marseille Tarot
Putting anything in writing has both its merit, and its diminishment, the latter in that it may appear to the reader as something current rather than a decade or more since penned.
