Acasebook of Otherworldly Music
D. Scott Rogo's A Casebook of Otherworldly Music is a unique examination of an often-neglected subject - psychic music. The book was originally titled: NAD: A Study of Some Unusual "Other World" Experiences. What is NAD? It's a Sanskrit term signifying transcendental, astral, psychic, or paranormal music - music heard from no apparent source. "One is continually impressed not only by Rogo's familiarity with this range of literature but even more by his keenly critical appraisal of the sources involved.One can applaud this pioneering effort.Those who are open-minded enough to read Rogo without pre-supposition, however, will find this volume filled with intriguing case material and much provocative theoretical material." - Parapsychology Review "[Rogo] has done a thorough job of combing the psychic literature and one could not ask for a more thorough job of compiling and editing these previously neglected cases. He deserves our thanks for focusing his impressive grasp of the psychic field on this highly interesting phenomenon and his scholarly book deserves the attention of every serious student of the psychic field." - Fate "A book on this subject has been overdue for some time, so the present well-documented volume is most welcome. It can readily be seen what a thorough treatment this fascinating subject has received at the hand of Mr. Scott Rogo." - Journal of the Society for Psychical Research D. Scott Rogo (1950-1990) was one of the most widely respected writer-journalists covering the field of parapsychology, as well as an active scientific investigator. Educated at the University of Cincinnati and San Fernando Valley State College, Rogo held a unique position in parapsychology and made many contributions to the field that deserve recognition. He served as a visiting researcher at the Psychical Research Foundation, then in Durham, North Carolina, and at the Division of Parapsychology and Psychophysics of the Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. He published papers on ESP in referred parapsychological journals and was active in field investigations of hauntings and poltergeists. Rogo was also a leading authority on the history of psychical research; the breadth of his historical knowledge of the field was unsurpassed. Over the course of more than two-dozen published books, Rogo sought to broaden the range of topics worthy of paranormal research.
