Other Worlds Austin 2019

Anomaly Archives Volunteers had a fantastic time December 7-8-9 interacting with attendees of the 6th annual Other Worlds science fiction film festival held at the Galaxy Highland 10 Theatre. We were warmly received and had fun speaking with so many wonderfully creative and intelligence film fans and filmmakers. Thanks to everyone, especially the OWA crew and Galaxy Highland staff.

Welcome to all our new eNewsletter email subscribers!


This week we focus on our recently acquired copies of the first “official” book about one of the organizations that inspire founder SMiles Lewis to create the nonprofit Anomaly Archives… The Archives for the Unexplained or AFU (formerly the “U stood for UFO) in Sweden is the world’s largest repository for archival UFO related materials. Coincidentally, one of the research projects associated with the AFU (the documentary, Ghost Rockets) showed at the 2016 Other Worlds film fest!

The book includes hundreds of samples from the archives and a general plea for international support for the arhcives continued work, and, at the end, a photo gallery of many of the hundreds of previous (and many on-going) donors to the archives.”

About anomaly

SMiles Lewis has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding the non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute (501c3). For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies. He has published his own print journal (E.L.F. Infested Spaces), edited a local paranormal newspaper (Austin Para Times), maintained a large network of websites (, organized a national UFO conference (NUFOC-38), spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology (Encounters with the Fantastic), hosted (and been a guest on) both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.” He is also the LOWFI-Texas State Bureau Chief of The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists. SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting PsiOp-Radio with Mack White as part of the many unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network. He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS) and the Scientific Anomaly Institute‘s lending library, the Anomaly Archives. His writings can be found within the Archives of his print journal ELFIS and ANOMALY Magazine. In his day job with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission‘s Talking Book Program he manages a Volunteer Recording Studio and audio duplication department and has been a consultant on two digital audio development documents for the Library of Congress‘ National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled.
