He has also contributed to Kronos, and the ISIS publication, Journal of the Ancient Chronology Forum (JACF), co-editing JACF 7 and editing the final JACF 10.

On Velikovsky

Newgrosh writes:

"Again, it is a minority who interpret myths and ancient texts in terms of global catastrophes. Notable among their number was Immanuel Velikovsky, who (like Donnelly and Bellamy before him) believed that the ancient records told the stories of terrifying global catastrophic events. His critics have never been convinced by his arguments, claiming that his interpretations were inferior to their own, which usually involved no global catastrophe."[1]

In his 1994 conclusions of the 2nd SIS Conference, Newgrosh writes:

"The scale, the eras, the agents behind the historical catastrophe events proposed by Velikovsky - all are questionable, and all are being questioned. Over the years some of his specific proposals have been proved wrong. What remains, however, is the clear and certain truth that ancient texts, myths and legends contain testimony of destruction wrought by extra-terrestrial bodies; and that catastrophist models built on that foundation are superior to the uniformitarian and gradualist models which still prevail."[2]
