New Book: Admissible - UFOs & Strange Creatures
Admissible: The Field Manual for Investigating UFOs, Paranormal Activity, and Strange Creatures is a new book from Chase Kloetzke and Richard Dolan that I was hired to edit.
If you want to know how to prepare for a field-investigation, what you'll need, the hazards to look out for, dealing with witnesses and much more, check it out!
Here's the publisher's info on the book:
"The first-ever manual that shows you how to investigate UFOs, strange creatures, and the paranormal--like a professional. Clear, comprehensive, no-nonsense, Chase Kloetzke and Richard Dolan have set a new standard for investigators of strange phenomena. UFOs, ghosts, and strange creatures like Bigfoot are some of the most interesting subjects in our world, mainly because they challenge the very sense of reality that most of us grew up with.
"These things aren’t supposed to exist. The problem, however, is that reports of them just keep coming, even well into the 21st century. Conducting a good investigation of these elusive subjects is not easy. How do you plan your investigation? What’s the best way to interview your witnesses? What kind of equipment should you bring?
"What kind of clothing? How do you do a proper stake-out of a location? What safety precautions should you take? How do you obtain, handle, and preserve evidence? How do you document your case for posterity, so that others can learn from it? Also, what kind of strangeness should you expect from investigating these very odd encounters? What do you need to know? How can you prepare for something that exists at the edges of our shared reality?
"The purpose of this book is to teach you these things. Until now, there hasn’t been a clearly written general guide for investigators of the weird, whether seasoned or brand-new. This is the first-ever field manual that will show you how to investigate UFOs, strange creatures, and the paranormal, and to do it in a professional manner.
