diWe are pleased to announce a book that breaks new ground in our understanding of sleep paralysis experiences. That book is Dark Intrusions: An Investigation into the Paranormal Nature of Sleep Paralysis Experiences by Louis Proud, an Australian whose very personal, well-researched work will likely have a profound impact not only for what he says but the way he has said it. And we’re not the only ones singing praises to this new young author. “Louis Proud has demonstrated with this book that he is one of the most acute commentators on the paranormal to appear in recent years,” says Colin Wilson, the author of The Occult. “It gives me immense pleasure to be allowed to introduce a writer who will, I suspect, become widely admired for his enviable brilliance and clarity.” And David Hufford, Ph.D., author of The Terror That Comes in the Night, adds these words in his foreword to the book: “This insider’s account of his own sleep paralysis experiences, in detail, is of great value. Then for that insider to knowledgeably place the experience in the broad paranormal context is unique. It provides a badly needed view of the cultural/interpretive framework that this experience naturally suggests. Louis Proud has been bold and thoughtful in providing this.” We could not agree more.
