The Association for Skeptical Enquiry

Casting a critical eye over suspect science, dubious claims and bizarre beliefs


We have two publications both edited by Michael Heap.

The Skeptical Adversaria


The Adversaria was for many years ASKE's quarterly newsletter. Since 2103 it has been incorporated into the Skeptical Intelligencer. The Adversaria contains news announcements of skeptical interest (with links to reports), articles and essays, humorous features, and a regular puzzle section to test readers' logical reasoning ability. Almost all the back copies of the Adversaria may be accessed on this website in the Members' Area.

The Skeptical Intelligencer


This was conceived by its first editor Wayne Spencer. From 1997 it was issued quarterly, then annually until 2013, since when it has again appeared quarterly and incorporates the Skeptical Adversaria. The Intelligencer section continues to feature serious articles of interest to skeptics, book reviews, etc., and each issue includes all the features of the Adversia. All ASKE members are invited to contribute material to the Intelligencer - formal and informal, long and short. Electronic copies are sent to individuals and skeptical groups across the globe so it is a good way of publicising your work, ideas and experiences that may be of interest to fellow skeptics. All members receive an electronic copy but may also opt for a paper copy by post at no extra expense. Some previous articles may be read here and almost all the back copies of the Intelligencer may be accessed on this website in the Members' Area.
