Afterworlds Press publishes select books on the subjects of life after death, near-death experiences, shamanism, mediumship, reincarnation, dreams, apparitions, poltergeists, deathbed visions, and related subjects.  From neglected classics to innovative new works, we are committed to publishing the finest books from around the world.  We have a growing list of international authors exploring hitherto unknown aspects of afterlife-related subjects across cultures.  While we slant towards the anthropology, history, psychology, and sociology of such phenomena and beliefs, we seek to broaden human understanding of them regardless of approach or discipline. Our goal is to make the best books in these fields available to a wider readership, liberating hidden knowledge and democratizing the afterlife with our carefully curated "books of the dead."

Afterworlds Press is an imprint of White Crow Books, dedicated to exploring extraordinary human experiences and the possibility that there is a greater reality beyond what our physical senses perceive.  The name "White Crow" pays homage to the great 19th century spiritual adventurer, William James: "To upset the conclusion that all crows are black," he said, "there is no need to seek demonstration that no crow is black; it is sufficient to produce one white crow."  White Crow Books and Afterworlds Press publish books in this same spirit of exploration.
