“Recent” Events:

Firstly, I’d like to apologize for the lack of communications over the past several months. Organizing the Summer Flying Saucer Cinema Series and the Nick Redfern lecture left me (SMiles Lewis) quite tired. Then just a couple days into September I had a sudden health issue rear its head. Add to that an attack by an apparently Algerian hacker who took down nearly every website (over 40 different domain names) on the servers hosting the Anomaly Archives website.

Anyway, “Onward and Upward!”

Nick Redfern talked about his new book

Contactees: A History of Alien-Human Interaction

This was our second biggest event to date. Our biggest event by far also featured Nick Redfern. Back in 2005, the Anomaly Archives hosted (with the kind support of Rob Riggs) an incredibly informative event called the Texas Ghost Lights Conference which also featured lectures by UK “Earth Lights” researcher Paul Devereux, Marfa Lights researcher James Bunnell and bigfoot/ghost-lights researcher Rob Riggs.

Thanks to everyone who came out and for all those who donated to support the Anomaly Archives and future SAI events.

Mirage Men by Mark Pilkington

Reviewed by Nick Redfern

Mark Pilkington’s Mirage Men is – I don’t exaggerate in saying – one of the most important UFO-themed books you’ll ever read. That is, if you dare to read the book, and don’t shy away from it because it might upset and unbalance your carefully constructed, nice and neat Ufological world.

Whether you are a full-on true-believer in the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis (ETH), wholly open-minded on what lies at the heart of the UFO puzzle, a skeptic, or a rabid debunker, you should not ignore Mirage Men. Of course, your views on what lies at the heart of the UFO phenomenon – and which of the above-categories you fall into – will play a large role in determining your response and reaction to Mark’s book.

Those for whom Ufology is a modern-day religion, and one that offers a form of cosmic comfort, will be shocked, angered and perhaps even disillusioned by what they read. Doubtless, too, there will be a degree of hostility and outright denial on their part when faced with the crumbling of certain much-cherished belief-systems, ideas and (possibly) certain cases that have become classics within Ufology.


– Research Review

Besides focusing on researchers we also like to highlight the specific research efforts of good researchers who add something new to the field of anomalous inquiry. Keith Chester is just such a researcher, adding a great deal of new primary research concerning the mysterious “Foo Fightings” and other anomalous aerial phenomena witnessed and documented before during and after WWII by our nation’s military men and women.
