Articles by David Conn

David Conn describes himself as an “investigator of the Jim Jones Peoples Temple cult for nine years prior to the Guyana mass murder.” Along with George Klineman and Sherman Butler, he co-authored The Cult that Died (New York: G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 1980). He is also the author of Lednorf’s Dilemma (Bloomington, IN: AuthorHouse, 2006); of The Specific Density of Scientists And Their Secret Fears (Bloomington, IN: AuthorHouse, 2012); and most recently of The Pleasure of Fiends: An Orthodox Study of Evil and the Meaning of the Jonestown Cultic Horror (Roseville, CA: AlphaGraphics, 2013).
