Volume 45 is now available, clocking in at a good size of 251 pages of accessible Journal papers published by the Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena and is available for purchase of £10 ($20). There is a quote which I comes to mind “Extraordinary results through the wise application of knowledge” (Which comes from Ron Young). ASSAPs Anomaly does just that, provides knowledge from which to build structure and look to discover the extraordinary.
A list of the articles and conference papers contained within, should wet your appetite enough to encourage you to obtain a copy of this excellent publication.

Not to mention more! including brilliant book reviews and correspondence. Anomaly 45 should be in the hands of any person considering themselves to be a paranormal investigator, follower of the unexplained or a curious observer looking to learn. For me personally, who attended ASSAP30 Seriously Strange conference event and got to listen to many of the talks by those active in the field of research and academia. My scribbling hand wasn’t fast enough on the day for taking notes of such involving presentations and information. ASSAP have played an ace from their sleeve by publishing them here for just £10 this deserves to be in the collection and would make an ideal gift for someone involved in any of the aspects of the unexplained.
