Dear Author/Publisher/Advertiser:

Every few months, our online catalogue,
New Age Books Abroad, is sent by email as a PDF file (now a WORD file) to 5,000 foreign language publishers in 40 countries. Each issue contains display ads for 6-30 New Age books from a variety of publishers. The aim of the ads is to sell translation rights to your books.

Most non-English language publishers are constantly on the prowl for U.S. and U.K. books for translation into their own languages. Usually, they find these books at publishers’ trade shows, like the Frankfurt Book Fair.
New Age Books Abroad is an alternative to these trade shows. We give non-English language publishers the opportunity to find out about your book by receiving our catalogue through the Internet and reading your ad. The foreign publisher may ask you for a complimentary copy of your book. That publisher may then decide to buy translation rights to your book. If this happens, all you have to do is sign a contract with the publisher, just as you would if you were selling your book to a local publisher. From then on, the foreign language publisher handles everything—translation, production, publication and distribution. You pay nothing. And you will likely receive an advance against royalties (and then, of course, regular royalties). New Paradigm Books’s Conversations with Eternity: The Forgotten Masterpiece of Victor Hugo sold translation rights to publishers in seven countries (Greece, Bulgaria, Latvia, Mexico, Brazil, Italy and Lithuania), in six cases by advertising through New Age Books Abroad.

If you decide to advertise in
New Age Books Abroad, we do everything for you. We go to AMAZON.COM and/or your website or other websites, pick up the cover image and all necessary editorial copy, and then compose your ad. We send you a proof of your ad in PDF or WORD file form. We make changes specified by you until we have your complete and final approval of the ad(s).

New Age Books Abroad is currently being published irregularly. Vol. 7, No. 4, a short issue offering foreign translation rights to six titles, was published on January 12, 2010.   It will be distributed abroad over the next three weeks, as we revise and update our mailing list in the face of many changes in the publishing world. WE PUBLISH ONE-PAGE, SINGLE-TITLE ADVERTISEMENTS--one-page PDF files published on a date specified by the advertiser.  CONTACT US FOR ALL DETAILS INCLUDING RATES.

We have not specified a publication date for Volume 8, Number 1. Please contact us if you think you might be interested

For a PDF file of our standard Advertisement Insertion Agreement, click on ADVERTISEMENT INSERTION AGREEMENT. 

We no longer accept payment by credit card; send check or money order made out not to New Age Books Abroad or New Paradigm Books but to John Chambers, 1921 Kinvarra Way, Redding, California. 96001. OUR REGULAR, CATALOG, RATES ARE $150 FOR THE FIRST BOOK, $120 FOR THE SECOND, $95 FOR THE THIRD, $85 FOR THE FOURTH, AND $75 FOR THE FIFTH.

If you advertise, you can include books you’re about to publish as well as books you’ve already published. Remember that non-English language publishers aren’t necessarily looking to see that your book has a good U.S. or U.K. sales track record before they buy it. They’re only interested in how your book might sell in their own country—and New Age books are much more popular abroad than they are in the U.S. or U.K.

From time to time, we carry ads for books that aren’t New Age, since the majority of the publishers to whom we send
New Age Books Abroad aren’t exclusively New Age publishers. So, let us know if you have any “non-New Age” titles that you might also want to advertise.

New Age Books Abroad is not an agent or a broker. If a publisher is interested in your book, we ask him/her to contact you directly. We don’t take part in contract negotiations. We don’t take a percentage. Nor do we charge for copies or for subscriptions to New Age Books Abroad itself. What we are is an online catalogue that creates a highly competent display ad for your book and emails that ad to 5,000 non-English language publishers worldwide.



What kinds of results do we have? The majority of contacts between non-English language publishers and advertisers in
New Age Books Abroad are direct, so we can’t tell you exactly how many requests have been made for our advertisers’ books or how many translation rights have been sold. However, since some contacts have been made with ourselves as intermediaries, we can tell you the following:

New Age Books Abroad
also sends out catalogues of other publishers as independent entities. We are currently sending out the Professional Books for the Small Business Owner Catalogue of ATLANTIC PUBLISHING GROUP, Ocala, Florida. ATLANTIC PUBLISHING GROUP has received requests for review copies of books from, among others: Dinastindo Publishing, of Jakarta, Indonesia; Computer Press, of Brno, The Czech Republic; Pratik-Action.Com, of Annecy, France.

In early issues of 
New Age Books Abroad, we carried ads only for the books of New Paradigm Books, along with articles we thought might be of interest to the international publishing community.  We reproduce, below, the full text of two articles from New Age Books Abroad, Vol. 1, No. 1.  The first is about a book published in France, A L'Écoute de  L'Au-Delà [Listening to the Beyond] by François Brune and Rémy Chauvin, Kiron/Éditions du Félin, Philippe Lebaud, 10, rue La Vacquerie, 75011 Paris, E-mail: <Lefelin75@aol.com.>,
France, 1999The second is about a book published in Italy,  Symbole: L'Ultimo Messaggio. L'Uomo, L'Anima, Lo Spirito [Symbol: The Final Message. Man, Soul, Spirit] by Giorgio di Simone, Edizioni Mediterranee, Roma s.r.l., 00196 Roma, Via Flaminia, 109, tel.: 06/3235433, FAX 06/3236277, E-mail <info@ediz-mediterranee.com>, Italy, 1999.
 

From Volume 1, Number 1


Contemporary "Instrumental Transcommunication" in France, Europe and the World

A L'Écoute de L'Au-Delà [Listening to the Beyond] by François Brune and Rémy Chauvin. Kiron/Éditions du Félin, Philippe Lebaud, 10, rue La Vacquerie, 75011 Paris, E-mail: <Lefelin 75@aol.com>, France, 1999.

Whatever the reality of spirit communication, the spirits seem to change their media of communication as technology changes. Beginning in the mid-19th century, the preferred mode of mediumistic "channeling" was a three-legged table tapping with one leg. This was the case up through the early decades of our century. In À L’Écoute de L’Au-Delà [Listening to the Beyond]—an extensive revision of their successful 1993 En Direct de L’Au-Delà [Live from the Beyond]—coauthors Rémy Chauvin and François Brune chart the history of ‘instrumental transcommunication (ITC),’ the new paranormal phenomenon in which disembodied spirits seem to speak through tape-recorders, radios, TV sets, computers and even FAX machines. Focusing mainly on the extraordinary growth worldwide, but with emphasis on Europe, of ITC, the book is richly documented by the often separate visits of the two men to the leading centers of ITC research in Europe. Both authors advance theories as to what might be behind the phenomenon, with in particular Father Brune—a Jesuit priest who is well-known as an author in France—not afraid to suggest that actual spirit communication of a complex and subtle sort may be the determining factor (M. Chauvin is a sometimes skeptical scientist and honorary professor at the Sorbonne).

Among the topics covered by Messieurs Chauvin and Brune in this lucid and compelling book are: The pioneering discoveries by Friedrich Jürgenson in 1959 and Konstantive Raudive in 1964 that tape-recorders left to randomly record sometimes seem to record the words of the dead; the growing incidence, observed particularly in Italy beginning in the 1970s, of the movement of pictures of the dead and their words across turned-off TV screens; the researches of Maggy and Jules Harsch-Fischbach in Luxembourg, which have famously included their recordings of the words of an entity calling himself ‘the Technician’ dictated through a tape-recorder, and of an entity named ‘Swejen Salter’ dictated through a computer screen (the latter seems to be an expert on the works of Philip José Farmer); and the amazing and controversial apparent appearance of the shade of renowned Austrian actress Romy Schreiber to German ITC researcher Fidelio Kberle through a closed-circuit TV set in 1982.

It all seems pretty incredible, but this bewildering phenomenon is very much on the increase. Father Brune tells us that "Though France is somewhat of a late-comer to these researches, small groups are proliferating almost everywhere. ‘[ITC] echoes’ gathered in other countries even indicate the phenomenon is beginning to be taken seriously by those the authorities. On one of my trips I heard about a research group in Hong Kong. I’d also been contacted twice by Japanese TV crews….in July, 1997, São Paulo’s Folha Espirita [the journal of the Brazilian ITC movement] reported that the Japanese had asked it for rights to publish several of the groups transcommunication photos."

Not the least of this book’s many fascinations are the far-ranging speculations of both Father Brune and Professor Chauvin as to the true nature of ITC. Nothing is excluded, no logical arguments dismissed, and some startling suggestions are put forward. We give this book top marks. It puts its finger on the pulse of a paranormal phenomenon likely to loom larger and larger in the years to come. -J. C.

Symbole: L'Ultimo Messaggio. L'Uomo, L'Anima, Lo Spirito [Symbol: The Final Message. Man, Soul, Spirit] by Giorgio di Simone. Edizioni Mediterranee, Roma s.r.l., 00196 Roma, Via Flaminia, 109, tel.: 06/3235433, FAX 06/3236277, E-mail <info@ediz-mediterranee.com> Italy, 1999.

Dr. Giorgio di Simone, of Naples, is one of Italy's leading investigators of paranormal behaviour. Born and bred in Marseilles, France, Dr. di Simone is by training an architect. But, during the early 1960s, his interest in psychic phenomena became so intense as to lead him to co-found, and then from 1963 to 1989 preside over, the Italian Center for Parapsychology [Centro Italiano di Parapsicologia]. During that period, he wrote numerous books on parapsychology, many of them selling very well in Italy. His Report on Dimension X [Rapporto dalla Dimensione X], Mediterranee, Rome, went through 14 editions from 1973 to 1997.

In May, 1994, Dr. di Simone found himself channeling the words of a spirit guide named Symbol. The spirit told the researcher he was the same "Symbol" who had channeled four books to French housewife Jeanne Laval from 1929 to 1937 (the four books are currently available as a single title, L'Heure des Révélations--The Hour of Revelations--from French-Canadian publisher Éditions de Mortagne in Boucherville, Quebec, Canada).

"Symbol" had told Jeanne Laval that he was the same spirit--then called the "Shadow of the Sepulcher"--who had been chief among the disembodied entities to speak to Victor Hugo on Jersey island (see New Paradigm Books's Conversations with Eternity: The Forgotten Masterpiece of Victor Hugo, translated with a commentary by John Chambers).

Perhaps it was no coincidence that Symbol, A.K.A. the Shadow of the Sepulcher, had first come to the bilingual French-Italian Dr. di Simone while he was working on the Italian translation of the transcripts of the table-tapping séances of Victor Hugo (that translation has not yet been published, but parts of it are available in Dr. di Simone's quarterly review, Gnosis, E-mail address <gnosis@infinito.it>).

Dr. di Simone continued to channel Symbol on and off through 1997 (since the publication of Symbole: L'Ultimo Messaggio, in 1999, he has begun to channel this spirit again). The transcripts of the 1994-1997 séances were published as a slim volume, by Mediterranee, in Rome, in 1999.

Along with much else, Symbol asserts in Dr. Giorgio di Simone's 1999 volume that man's soul is merely the vehicle that permits the non-physical "spirit" of homo sapiens to live on earth for a time, and that our "souls" die with our bodies if we do not make a concerted effort in our lifetimes to expand beyond ourselves to "achieve the conquest of immortality" beyond the grave. The immortality of the soul is not then a given; immortality must be striven for actively during life.

Symbol tells us further that it is all the more necessary that we make this transcendent effort of self/soul-actualization in that more and more humans are being born without any soul at all, and it is the responsibility of those who still possess souls to reach out strenuously to help those who do not.

Despite all this, however, God is utterly real if utterly unknowable, asserts Symbol. We are surrounded at all times by spirit guides, who strive to help us to the extent that is permitted them by God. But the ultimate effort lies with us alone. If we do not make that effort--and immediately--then humankind itself is doomed to extinction. -   T.F.
