Even though the evidence for Survival is convincingly presented in the Evidence Room of this library, inquiring minds are well advised to reinforce their convictions by reading reports written by other researchers or told, first hand, by those who have actually experienced evidential events.
In this aisle, you will find the classics of the genre – the oldies-but-very-goodies –generally written prior to WW II. They are often quoted and used as sources by contemporary writers, but you are sure to find many of them to be well worth reading in their original entirirety.
Other aisles feature works specializing in specific types of evidence.
