I couldn't tell you when I bought this, but it was not just years ago, but decades! LOL! It worked for a long time! Now, it's like an antique car!
I thought some might like to see some of the covers to a few of my books that never made it to the finished thing, but were replaced by others covers. They all look good though! They are the earlier plans for The Rendlesham Forest UFO Conspiracy; The Black Diary; Women in Black; and my Marilyn Monroe book, Diary of Secrets.
Surfing around Amazon this morning I found this new book, Winged Aliens. If, like me, you have a big interest in the Mothman phenomenon - and similar flying "things" too - you'll want this one. Here's what the publisher says:
"Investigator Margie Kay discusses historic and current winged creature sightings that remain unexplained by conventional science. Sightings of Pterodactyls, Thunderbirds, Mothman, giant birds, and even fairies that appear and disappear without a trace have perplexed man for centuries – yet no one has come up with a rational explanation as to why credible people have seen these creatures until now. Why is it that UFOs are sometimes seen in the vicinity of these creatures? In this book, Margie Kay discusses the probability that these winged beings could actually be aliens or inter-dimensional beings moving in and out of our three-dimensional world. Newly obtained photos and video from witnesses support this theory. See multiple witness accounts in this book which include historic sightings, Margie’s own cases, and cases submitted by other investigators and witnesses."
Over the years I've taken a lot of interest in all the various files the FBI have declassified and placed on their website, The Vault. Here's a few recently uploaded files:
And, the FBI's full file on racist occultist William Dudley Pelley. The file makes it very clear about his scummy, nutty, dangerous belief systems. It runs to more than 700 pages and is in 2 PDF files.
Of all the copies/photocopies of what has become known as "The Marilyn Monroe UFO document," this one, in the picture above, is the earliest one that surfaced into the public domain in 1994 - and that I now hold.
This is the bad condition, yellow, faded, torn one, that was handed over to me years ago.
It shows the "bleed"-through of the typewriter keys on the back.
Anything else is a second or third (or fourth or fifth, photocopy) of the one that began to appear in the 1990s.
Yesterday George Knapp interviewed me about my new book, Diary of Secrets: UFO Conspiracies & the Mysterious Death of Marilyn Monroe.
The interview is a lengthy one and you can find it here.
Sad news: if you go to the annual Mothman Festival you will know of Susan Sheppard, writer, lecturer and researcher. Sadly, Susan has passed away. She was a great person and will be missed by all who knew her. Terrible news. Rest in peace, Susan.
Just ordered a copy of this new book from Adam Gorightly: Saucers, Spooks and Kooks. Looks very good! Here's the theme of the book from the publisher:
"From flying saucer crashes to underground alien bases, a number of modern mythologies have come into being since the advent of the UFO era in the 1940s. But how much of these myths is real, versus being the invention of either government agencies or deluded conspiracy theorists? Saucers, Spooks and Kooks provides an eye-opening survey of the history behind these stories, and the individuals promoting them."
