Road in the Sky Reprinted
Not too long ago, I wrote a post here on a recent, weird, and synchronicity-filled weekend I had in Los Angeles.
While there I hung out with good mate Greg Bishop, who very kindly made available for me copies of the FBI's file on 1950s Contactee, George Hunt Williamson, which had been declassified via the terms of the Freedom of Information Act, but which I had previously never seen.
(As readers of my On the Trail of the Saucer Spies and Contactees books will know, the FBI spent years watching the early Contactees such as George Adamksi and George Van Tassel.)
Well, it so happens that securing the file from Greg turned out to be very useful.
In another of those curious situations born out of synchronistic oddities (well, I consider them odd!), Tim Green Beckley contacted me recently and told me he was just about to republish one of Williamson's old books, Road in the Sky.
Tim's reason for contacting me about this was to inquire if I wanted to submit an article on Williamson for the book. But it would have to be something new, largely unseen and that added something significant to the saga.
I had, of course, the perfect thing: the FBI file on the man in question, as provided by Greg only weeks before!
Tim, of course, was highly enthused by this and, as a result, my article on Williamson and what J. Edgar Hoover's finest knew about the man appears in the new edition of Williamson's old tome.
And here's Tim to tell you more about the Road in the Sky and that file...
