THE VELIKOVSKY DEBATE TODAY
EDITOR: Bernard Newgrosh

EDITORIAL ADDRESS: DEREK SHELLEY-PEARCE, 29 Cuttam Lane North, Orpington, Kent BR6 6BX
WORKSHOP was launched to provide for informal publication of articles that, for a variety of reasons, do not qualify for immediate inclusion in the S.I.S. REVIEW.
This may be because the article is of a speculative nature, for which it has not been possible to provide detailed evidence or undertake thorough, research. It may however be of great interest to members and deserving of early circulation. In this way, WORKSHOP can provide scope for the germination of ideas as they become more focussed and clarified, may well provide material for later inclusion in the REVIEW.
In its aim of increasing the possibilities for the exchange of ideas and information within the Society’s membership, WORKSHOP can be of great value for the relaying of snippets of information, members’ opinions, reviews of relevant news and articles, and in general for keeping members informed of anything which is going on and likely to be of interest in relation to the work of Immanuel Velikovsky and other “taboo” subjects. The Editor relies on regular feedback by way of contributions for publication.
