The Chaos Conundrum
The Chaos Conundrum - written by Aaron Gulyas - is a new book for which I have penned the foreword. It's a book I definitely recommend too, as it's definitively refreshing, original, alternative, outside of the box, and guaranteed to get up the collective noses of the closed-minded and the stuck-in-the-mud crowd - which are all very good reasons to buy it!
UFOs, Crop Circles, Exopolitics, Roswell, ghosts, conspiracies (and conspiracy-theorists) and much more all appear in The Chaos Conundrum.
And here's the blurb for the book (published by Paul Kimball's Redstar Books):
"In The Chaos Conundrum, historian Aaron John Gulyas examines how the paranormal has intersected and influenced our culture in myriad ways, from the conspiracy beliefs of William Cooper and Exopolitics to the challenge that the stories of Gray Barker presented to our concept of self and time. He looks at the maelstrom of personalities, agendas, impressions, data, confusion, and contradictions that can be found in the world of the weird, and demonstrates how they have become an integral part of our lives, whether in the form of flying saucers, hauntings, religious revelations, psychic abilities, or dozens of other guises. Gulyas delves into the stories of the people who have attempted to create order out of the chaos. Along the way he recounts his own journey from enthusiastic believer in the 'shadow government' and their underground bases to jaded academic skeptic, and then finally to someone who thinks there might just be something to the paranormal after all...but not what we have been led to expect or believe!"
A review will appear here soon...
