In 1998, Jeff wrote a book, The Ghosts of November, which describes his experiences during his weeks in Guyana. He revised it several times in an effort to secure a mainline publisher. His final revision is reproduced as The Ghosts of November–Web Edition.

Jeff maintained a blog between 2007 and 2008 – also named The Ghosts of November – the entries in which this site has reproduced. We have also archived the site as it appeared at the time of Jeff’s death here.
