Circles of Note: Bibliography on the Crop Circles

Michael Chorost

original source |  fair use notice

Summary: Bibliographies always look rather dry. However, a careful reader can learn much from this one, since many of the entries have parentheti- cal summaries attached to them. Also, a close look at the topics will reveal the diversity of the crop circles phenomenon and the responses it has gathered. Finally, the sections on books, magazines, and studies include price and ordering information, where known.

Bibliographies always look rather dry. However, a careful reader can learn much from this one, since many of the entries have parentheti- cal summaries attached to them. Also, a close look at the topics will reveal the diversity of the crop circles phenomenon and the responses it has gathered. Finally, the sections on books, magazines, and studies include price and ordering information, where known.

I should note two sets of exclusions. First, I have not indexed articles from journals devoted to cerealogy. Much of the best information has been printed in their pages; back numbers can often be obtained by writing to the editors. Second, I have tended to include newspaper arti- cles only of particular interest or informativeness, such as ones reporting circles in detail, non-English circles, or noteworthy points of view.

Inclusion in this bibliography does not imply endorsement.

I am indebted to my contacts and colleagues in England, Canada, and the United States, who generously sent me many of the articles listed here. I would be grateful to receive any corrections and additions, which will be included in future updates. Contact me at:
