Columnists and Authors

There are a number of regular contributors to The Skeptic Magazine, many of whom are authors and columnists in their own right. Brief details about the contributors are provided below. There are also a number of staff who do not write columns for the magazine. Details of these individuals can be found at the far bottom.

Julian Baggini writes the Philosopher's Corner column. He is also Editor of The Philosophers’ Magazine.

Julian is author of The Pig that Wants to be Eaten and 99 Other Thought Experiments, Making Sense: Philosophy Behind the Headlines (Oxford University Press) and The Meaning of Life and his latest book is Welcome to Everytown: A Journey into the English Mind.

Jon Cohen writes the Doubt and About column.

Jon is a successful record producer. Working mainly in the classical crossover field, he has had several hit records, most notably the 2009 top 5 album Faryl by Faryl Smith. His passion for scepticism was ignited in 1997 after reading Carl Sagan’s The Demon-Haunted World. Since that time he has developed an addiction to sceptical literature as well as a fascination with magic, cognitive psychology and nice cheeses. In 2008 Jon travelled to Basrah, Iraq, to record an album with some military pipers. He also offered ‘psychic surgeon’ Gary Mannion £50,000 if he could demonstrate his claimed abilities under test conditions. Jon’s cat Foxy is able to recount pi to one hundred and fifty decimal places.

Mark Duwe writes the Galileo's Doughnuts column and designed the previous web template for The Skeptic.

Mark is a web designer working mostly in advertising, but also teaches astronomy at evening class. He’s a qualified homoeopath (he didn’t take the final exam and passed with flying colours) and thinks reality is good enough without having to invent stuff.

Chris French is a Special Advisor and former Editor-in-Chief of The Skeptic. He also writes the Reasonable Doubt column.
Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Chris has co-edited the magazine since 2001 with, in chronological order, Kate Holden, Julia Nunn, Victoria Hamilton and Lindsay Kallis. He also heads the Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit at Goldsmiths, University of London, where he is a Professor of Psychology.
Although he has published over a hundred scientific papers and chapters covering a wide range of topics within psychology, for the last decade or so his major focus of research has been the psychology of paranormal beliefs and ostensibly paranormal experiences.

He often appears on TV and radio programmes offering a sceptical perspective on paranormal and related claims and has recently started writing a regular column for the Guardian’s online science pages. He lives in Greenwich with his wife, two of his three wonderful daughters, his sister-in-law, his nephew, two cats and a guinea pig.

Wendy M Grossman writes the Skeptic at Large column and is the founding Editor of The Skeptic.

Wendy is the founder and former editor of
The Skeptic. Her web site is at www.pelicancrossing.net. She founded the magazine in 1987 but has also written for Scientific American and the Daily Telegraph. You can also find her work in New Scientist, Wired, and Wired News. She was a columnist for Internet Today from July 1996 until it closed in April 1997. She edited an anthology of interviews with leading computer industry figures taken from the pages of leading British computer magazine Personal Computer World called Remembering the Future, which was released in January 1997 by Springer Verlag.

Mike Heap writes the Through a Glass Darkly column.

Mike is a clinical and a forensic psychologist and the Chairman/Secretary and a founder member of ASKE, the Association for Skeptical Enquiry - a society for people from all walks of life who wish to promote rational thinking and enquiry, particularly concerning unusual phenomena, and who are opposed to the proliferation and misuse of irrational and unscientific ideas and practices. Mike is Editor of ASKE’s quarterly newsletter Skeptical Adversaria and its annual magazine Skeptical Intelligencer.

Tracy King writes the Skeps and the City column.

Tracy is an active skeptic and expert on marketing skepticism. The owner of a successful London marketing consultancy with over ten years experience in the discipline, Tracy has brought marketing methodology to skepticism worldwide. She organised The Amaz!ng Meeting (TAM) London on behalf of the James Randi Educational Foundation. Tracy is well-known in the online skeptic community and is a regular writer of editorial on critical thinking in the modern world. She has also spoken at TAM Las Vegas, and twice posed for the Skepchick calendar.

Tracy’s professional background includes Trinity Mirror, Europe’s largest newspaper publisher, and since setting up her own marketing business has attracted clients from international banks to popular science authors. For many years she performed as a singer-songwriter in her spare time, playing at venues such as Ronnie Scotts and The Jam House. Although she doesn’t get much time for rock and roll these days, she remains a firm believer in three chords and the truth.
