Selected Bibliography

A prolific writer, Carrington published over one hundred books and articles in the course of his life, the majority related to his work investigating mediums and discussing psychical research and Spiritualism, with some better living through hygiene and diet books thrown in for good measure.

In addition to his non-fiction, Carrington also authored works of occult fiction, including The Mysteries of Myra (1916) – which was adapted into a serial by the Wharton Bros. – and Zenobia: A Dream of Ancient Egypt (1916).
