JUNIOR SKEPTIC: Ghost Ships, by Daniel Loxton
A leading international publication in the realm of skeptical inquiry, Skeptic magazine examines extraordinary claims and revolutionary ideas, promotes critical thinking, and serves as an educational tool for those seeking a sound scientific viewpoint. Each issue examines a specific theme and explores various social, scientific, and paranormal controversies. We investigate claims of the paranormal, pseudoscience, fringe groups, cults and claims between: science, pseudoscience, junk science, voodoo science, pathological science, bad science, non science and plain old nonsense. Our contributors—leading scientists, scholars, investigative journalists, historians, professors, and teachers—are top experts in their fields. The magazine has been called “stimulating and provocative” by Carl Sagan, “clearly superior… gutsy” by Edward O. Wilson, and “the best journal in the field” by Stephen Jay Gould. Our editor-inchief, Dr. Michael Shermer, has been called the most prominent skeptic in America, and his monthly column in Scientific American, and his numerous books and media appearances have made Skeptic a respected voice in academia.

   Refreshing Reviewed Saturday, 27 May 2017 SUBSCRIBER
It's refreshing to have a source of information I know I can trust. Especially these days where network news is all about the sensationalism and lying just to get ratings and misinformation saturates the internet. It seems there are very few sources now that do real investigative journalism based on facts and science.
   Engaging and exaiting Reviewed Monday, 1 June 2015 SUBSCRIBER
articles are well written, engaging and the juniour skeptic seems great to engage in story telling with your children
   Sophisticated Journalism Reviewed Friday, 23 November 2012
Been reading Skeptic for a while now, and really impressed by the variety of journalism and topics covered. Thought provoking articles on very current topics!
   Fantastic food for thought Reviewed Friday, 23 November 2012 SUBSCRIBER
I really enjoy Skeptic Magazine, the perspectives are thought-provoking and the writing is well-researched and interesting. I love reading James Randi's contributions. If you consider yourself a skeptic, do read this magazine.
   I was a skeptic! Reviewed Thursday, 8 November 2012
I was prepared to be disappointed, particularly as I'd seen problems with the PlayBook version. But it works as advertised, fully functional including zoom, and speedy page turns.
