Nexus

Nexus

Nexus is among the more distinctive newsstand magazines reporting on paranormal realities. This Australian-based publication takes a decidedly countercultural and antigovernment perspective and is especially attuned to what it sees as possible conspiracies operating against the public's welfare. It was born out of the New Age belief in humanity's current transition in consciousness, but believes that sinister forces are at work to block human progress. Thus Nexus has assigned itself the task of reporting on what it believes to be the news behind the news, hard-to-gather facts and suppressed information that are needed by people making the consciousness transformation.

Each issue of Nexus begins with approximately ten feature stories that cover such topics as natural health cures, UFO abductions, natural disasters and Earth changes, government wrong-doing, and possible future scientific catastrophes. Particular attention has been paid to alternative cancer therapies and government efforts to suppress their use. This overall perspective is carried over to the many short news items reprinted from around the world. Nexus is especially helpful for its extensive book review column that highlights many books on alternative science, UFOs, psychic phenomena, ancient mysteries, and conspiracy theories not generally reviewed in the mainstream UFO and New Age periodicals.

Nexus sponsors an annual conference (in Australia) that includes speakers on psychical research, holistic health, ancient mysteries, UFOs, and related topics.

Nexus was first issued as a quarterly in 1987. The present editors, Duncan M. Roads and Catherine Simons, purchased it in 1990. They adopted the present bimonthly schedule, removed articles on subjects like the environment of primary New Age interest, and gave it its present distinctive editorial perspective. Through the 1990s it gained an international audience. Nexus is published in Australia, but has developed an American and a British edition and a number of foreign-language editions (Polish, Italian, Swedish, Japanese, French, Korean, and Greek). Its editorial offices are located at P.O. Box 30, Mapleton, Queensland 4560, Australia. It has a webpage at http://www.nexusmagazine.com/.
