Nick Spanos almost certainly wrote on this subject, particularly with
to the interpretation of hypnogogic and hypnopompic hallucinations as spirits,
demons, aliens, or whatever else the culture in which the person was embedded
provided as fodder for the manufacture of meaning. I'm afraid I don't have
precise references, but a PsychLit search for "Spanos and hallucinations"
turn up a rich history of work.
