Investigating Mediums with Julie Beischel
New Thinking Allowed
with Jeffrey Mishlove

“Julie Beischel, PhD, is the co-founder and Director of Research at the Windbridge Research Center, a nonprofit dedicated to performing rigorous scientific research and creating educational materials on the topics of dying, death, and what comes next. She received her doctorate in Pharmacology and Toxicology with a minor in Microbiology and Immunology. She is author of Investigating Mediums. Her website is windbridge.org.

Here she describes her research approach, working with mediums whom she treats as partners in her investigations. She discusses her quintuple-blind protocols that have provided clear evidence that mediums are able to provide information regarding deceased persons about whom they had no previous knowledge. She also refers to many interpersonal factors involved in studying mediums. Additionally she discusses physiological factors. “

Happy New Year! Here’s to 2019… and BEYOND!

Here’s wishing you all the best for the New Year!

Open-House / Lecture / Holiday Party

A couple of Saturdays ago, on December 8th, 2018 … We hosted our first Open House with tours of the new facility, a lecture by Nick Redfern on his new book (Top Secret Alien Abduction Files) and a Holiday Party afterwards. We had a wonderful time at this multifaceted event. A full-house greeted our guest speaker Nick Redfern after Bob Price and SMiles Lewis gave introductions to our respective organizations. These talks were recorded and should be available soon at our website and YouTube channel. In the meantime you can view a few photos at the Website.
Videos-of-the-Week:

Besides videos of Nick Redfern’s recent talk and SMiles Lewis’ organizational introduction lecture coming soon, we’ll also be posting video of Barb MacLeod’s Mayan-State-Sponsored-Shamanism presentation from last year as well as our archival footage of Texas’s ParaCryptozoologist Treasure: Rob Riggs. And there is more to come…

In the meantime, here is video of SMiles Lewis’ presentation to the Anomaly Archives monthly meetup circa September 2017 about his February 2016 Mystery Hum Experience.

PLUS, another Cargo Culture video… As a close friend was leaving the other night, something in our conversation sparked his memory of a pop song dealing with themes of suppressed experience … about an abduction that was really a close encounter portending utopian future realities, thousands of creatures in cities of light without hate … but the man is pressured by the powers-that-be to: Keep it dark! 

Book-of-the-Week

This week’s selection is a book that I’ve recently read, cover to cover, over the holiday weekend. I’ve not read a physical book this fast in years. I’ve been wanting to read this book for several several years and so it felt good to kick back with a more fast and loose narrative storytelling tome than stodgier types of nonfiction. It explores paranoid themes of gang stalking, possible covert government / military / law enforcement / corporate espionage, hi-tech R & D exploitation of “invisible” people by “invisible midgets” a la the invisibility cloak suit of the alien in the Predator movies. I recall the wave of negative comments in the online Fortean Times forum about the featured cover article that promoted the book. Regardless of the veracity of the book’s most spectacular claims, it is an excellent launching pad for more discussion and an entertaining read by an author / researcher of whom more people should be aware.

Until next issue…

Song by Genesis
Lyrics
Found that man reported missing,
He wandered in his home.
It don’t seem to bad if you consider
Just what he’s been through.
Seems he met up with a gang of thieves,
Who mistook him for a man of means,
They locked him up then found he had no money,
So they let him go again.
Now he’s back at home and happy
Just to see the kids.

I wish that I could really tell you
All the things that happened to me
And all that I have seen.
A world full of people their hearts full of joy,
Cities of light with no fear of war,
And thousands of creatures with happier lives,
And dreams of a future with meaning and no need to hide.

Oh, keep it dark.

It seems strange to have to lie,
About a world so bright.
And tell instead a made-up story,
From the world of night.

I wish, that I could really tell you,
All the things that happened to me
And all that I have seen,
A world full of people their hearts full of joy,
Cities of light with no fear of war,
And thousands of creatures with happier lives,
And dreams of a future with meaning and no need to lie,
No need to hate,
No need to hide.

Oh, keep it dark.

Songwriters: Michael Rutherford / Phil Collins / Tony Banks
Keep It Dark lyrics © Concord Music Publishing LLC

Song information

A light rock song, it describes a man who has been to the future and has seen a bright, happy world where everyone is filled with joy, cities are filled with light, with no fear of war, and all exploitation has ceased as all creatures have happier lives. Once he returns, however, he is pressured to lie about the incident (i.e., to “keep it dark”). Instead he claims that he was kidnapped by thieves who wanted to take his money.[citation needed]. The cover depicts the three wise monkeys.

In the DVD interview accompanying the 2007 re-release of Abacab, the album from which the song comes, composer Tony Bankssaid that “the idea was that this character had to pretend that he’d just been robbed by people and that’s why he’d disappeared for a few weeks, and in fact what had happened [was] he’d been to the future and gone to this fantastic world where everything was wonderful and beautiful and everything… but he couldn’t tell anybody that, because no one would believe him and the powers that be kept him silent.”[citation needed]

The song’s structure is unusual: the rhythm is in a 6/4 time signature, with a distinctly syncopated rhythm guitar part. Lead singer Phil Collins sings in falsetto for certain lines of the song.[citation needed] The pace overall, particularly the drums, is similar to the album’s title track.

Music video

A music video supported the single release of the song, featuring Collins, Tony Banks, and Rutherford in two different settings. In the first and second verses and the fade out, the band walks along bleak city streets (in Amsterdam) wearing trenchcoats and fedoras. When the chorus comes in, it shifts to the band wearing all-white suits and sunglasses, and walking through a field, with the sun shining. In both settings, Banks mimes with a mini Casio keyboard and Rutherford with the neck from a guitar, while Collins keeps the beat of the song with drumsticks, mostly hitting air, or the walls of the Amsterdam houses.

Book Of The Week

Chameleo: 

A Strange But True Story of Invisible Spies, Heroin Addiction, and Homeland Security

by Robert Guffey

     “A mesmerizing mix of Charles Bukowski, Hunter S. Thompson, and Philip K. Dick, Chameleo is a true account of what happened in a seedy Southern California town when an enthusiastic and unrepentant heroin addict named Dion Fuller sheltered a U.S. Marine who’d stolen night vision goggles and perhaps a few top secret files from a nearby military base.

     Dion found himself arrested (under the ostensible auspices of The Patriot Act) for conspiring with international terrorists to smuggle Top Secret military equipment out of Camp Pendleton. The fact that Dion had absolutely nothing to do with international terrorists, smuggling, Top Secret military equipment, or Camp Pendleton didn’t seem to bother the military. He was released from jail after a six-day-long Abu-Ghraib-style interrogation. Subsequently, he believed himself under intense government scrutiny — and, he suspected, the subject of bizarre experimentation involving “cloaking”— electro-optical camouflage so extreme it renders observers practically invisible from a distance of some meters — by the Department of Homeland Security. Hallucination? Perhaps — except Robert Guffey, an English teacher and Dion’s friend, tracked down and interviewed one of the scientists behind the project codenamed “Chameleo,” experimental technology which appears to have been stolen by the U.S. Department of Defense and deployed on American soil. More shocking still, Guffey discovered that the DoD has been experimenting with its newest technologies on a number of American citizens.

A condensed version of this story was the cover feature of Fortean Times Magazine (September 2013). “

And a version of the interview appeared in UFO Magazine as “To See The Invisible Man”: PDF @Archive.org

 Lyrics Below

“Official music video for the single “Cloudbusting” written, produced and performed by the British singer Kate Bush. It was the second single released from her no.1 1985 album Hounds of Love. “Cloudbusting” peaked at no.20 in the UK Singles Chart. The music video, directed by Julian Doyle, was conceived by Terry Gilliam and Kate Bush. The video features Canadian actor Donald Sutherland playing the role of Wilhelm Reich, and Bush playing the part of his young son, Peter.”

From the Anomaly Archives August 2004 eNews:

My Favorite Songs About Anomalous Phenomena, UFOs and General Weirdness

The other day, I pointed out to a dear friend how British vocalist Kate Bush, beyond writing and singing songs about paranormal topics, is rumored to have been a real life “ufo investigator” over in Great Britain. We were discussing the Kate Bush songs Cloudbusting (based on a dream by Wilhelm Reich’s son) and Experiment IV which I was bringing up because of a recent news article on Israel’s use of supposedly non-lethal sound weapons for riot control. See sidebar below right …

While discussing Kate Bush’s inspiration for her Wilhelm Reich song, my friend discovered that both Kate Bush and Patti Smith are authors of songs inspired by Peter Reich’s A Book of Dreams. Patti Smith recorded a song called Birdland that is “about Wilhelm Reich coming back for his son in a UFO“.

Over the years all my friends with interest in subjects like UFOs, Aliens, Ghosts etc. have collected and shared a vast array of music archiving the various musical mileus that have been touched by the Saucers and their paranormal occupants. Compilations with names like The Saucers Singand Surely Nothing Human Could… From that huge collection of music memorabilia are a few of my favorites…

I still dream of orgonon
I wake up crying
You’re making rain
And you’re just in reach
When you and sleep escape me
You’re like my yo-yo
That glowed in the dark
What made it special
Made it dangerous
So I bury it
And forget
But every time it rains
You’re here in my head
Like the sun coming out
Ooh, I just know that something good is going to happen
And I don’t know when
But just saying it could even make it happen
On top of the world
Looking over the edge
You could see them coming
You looked too small
In their big, black car
To be a threat to the men in power
I hid my yo-yo
In the garden
I can’t hide you
From the government
Oh, god, daddy
I won’t forget
‘Cause every time it rains
You’re here in my head
Like the sun coming out
Ooh, I

Book Of The Week

Thieves in the Night: 
A Brief History of Supernatural Child Abductions

by Joshua Cutchin

“Folklore has always warned of hidden dangers lurking in the shadows, otherworldly beings who seek to steal that which parents hold most dear. In the first book dedicated solely to the subject, Joshua Cutchin traces this primal concern from antiquity to the modern era—beginning with worldwide tales of faeries, changelings, spirits, demons, and monsters, before examining more contemporary phenomena such as Sasquatch kidnappings, alien abductions, and mysterious disappearances in national parks. Folklore, medicine, science, and spirituality come together for a uniquely scholarly perspective on the thieves in the night.”

Lyrics: Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft

Songwriters: John Woloschuk / Terry Draper

In your mind you have capacities, you know
To telepath messages through the vast unknown
Please close your eyes and concentrate
With every thought you think

Upon the recitation we’re about to sing
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary, most extraordinary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary, most extraordinary craft

You’ve been observing our Earth
And we’d like to make
A contact with you
We are your friends

Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary, ultra emissaries
We’ve been observing your Earth
And one night we’ll make
A contact with you
We are your friends

Calling occupants of interplanetary, quite extraordinary craft
And please come in peace, we beseech you
Only our love we will teach them
Our Earth may never survive
So do come, we beg you
Please, interstellar policeman
Oh won’t you give us a sign
Give us a sign
That we’ve reached you
Oh do

With your mind you have ability to form
And transmit thought energy far beyond the norm
You close your eyes, you concentrate
Together, that’s the way
To send the message we declare World Contact Day

Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary, most extraordinary craft

Ah ah ah ahh
Ah ah ah ahh
Ah ah ah ahh
Calling occupants
Calling occupants
Calling occupants of interplanetary, anti-adversary craft

Anomaly Archives Presents… 

Maya Shamanism: The Transmutation of Sustenance
by Dr. Barbara MacLeod

Sunday, September 23rd – 3pm at The Anomaly Archives

The Anomaly Archives is proud to support the Mysterious Ancient Civilizations meetup group in presenting this lecture from Austin’s own Mayan language expert, Dr. Barbara MacLeod.

Maya Shamanism: The Transmutation of Sustenance

Dr. Barbara MacLeod takes us on a journey of the metaphysical ideology of the Classic Maya royal court through translations of hieroglyphs found on cups that were from the Maya royal dynasty.

“The ancient Maya practiced state shamanism, in which kings and their families engaged in conjuring deities and ancestors and made offerings of their own blood to feed the earth. War captives were common offerings as well. Mythological scenes on royal drinking-cups placed in tombs feature serpent-deities conjured amid altered states of consciousness, and it is now possible to speculate on the entheogenic plants used. Sometimes the conjurors themselves were deities.

This practice was fundamental to Maya kingship and became fossilized and codified in the form of the “ceremonial serpent bar” worn by kings at the accessions at major events in the calendar. Infants were also sacrificed, although likely not those of royalty; another mythic theme on these cups depicts the sacrifice of a human baby who becomes an infant jaguar as he transitions from one world to the next. All of this is orchestrated by k’awiil–the metaphysical manifestation of lightning.

This is an origin myth, archaic at the time these vases were painted. It functioned as a charter for the ongoing reciprocity between humans and gods required for the perpetuation of the royal dynasty, the fecundity of the earth, and the reliability of the rains.” Dr. Barbara MacLeod

If the cups could talk, oh the stories we would hear!

We hope you’ll join us on a journey of myths, ceremonies, royalty, and sacrifices of the ancient Maya civilization.

Meeting to be held in second floor conference room. Access into building is limited, door person will be at the front door to allow guests to enter. Door may be locked 10 minutes after meeting starts, please try to arrive before 3pm.

Suggested donation $5 in support of Anomaly Archives.

Video-of-the-Week

Recently I’ve had the chance to catch-up on a number of wonderful videos produced by Jason Charbonneau at his Think Anomalous YouTube Channel. There are so many great videos to watch there like the one about The Voronezh UFO Landing, 1989 and Hieronyma and the Incubus – Sleep Paralysis, Sexuality, and Anomalous Entity Encounters, or classic monster encounters like the Flatwoods “Monster,” 1952 and Kelly Hopkinsville Encounter, The Goblin “Invasion” of 1955 and important historic cases from outside North America such as Italy’s Zanfretta Abductions, 1978-1981 and Sweden’s Abduction of Jacob Jacobsson, 1759. Of course, the video that would make me decide to feature it as our Video of the Week is about my favorite researcher … Jacques Vallée.

 


Book-of-the-Week

For this week’s book, we’re going Atlantean with one of our many books on the subject of this mythic ancient civilization. We have so many books in our Girard Collection focused on this topic but this particular title stands out due both to its being an autographed copy of a small original print-run but also the strange binding that features patterned cloth – of which there were several different prints used as one can see looking over the other rare copies for sale online. Also, you have to admire the artwork used on later traditional print-runs that feature a dynamic painting by the author. (See below).

 


New Meetup Group

We’ve resurrected our Anomaly Archives Meetup.com Group and will soon begin posting information about upcoming get-togethers here at the archive and lending library… and BEYOND!!

 


Volunteering at the Archives

Folks have been helping us finish setting up our new shelving, organizing the collections, tweaking the online catalog and more. In the near future we’ll need many more volunteers to help us staff the Anomaly Archives so that it can finally begin having traditional weekday business hours. If you think you have what it takes to help the Anomaly Archives achieve its operational goals, please give founder SMiles Lewis a call (512-842-9046) or send an email (contact@anomalyarchives.org).

Jacques Vallée, UFOs, and the Case Against Aliens

  Think Anomalous

  Published on Jan 22, 2017
“For more than 20 years after the flying saucer frenzy of the late 1940s, the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis (ETH) remained the default explanation for UFOs. Jacques Vallée, a French astronomer and ufologist, was the first to challenge the ETH, and he followed the UFO data towards some unorthodox and fascinating conclusions.

Book Of The Week

Atlantis: Mother of Empires
by Robert B. Stacy-Judd

“It is my wish to discuss with the reader certain assumptions and opinions, hypotheses and theories in an easily understandable form and in a spirit free of dogmatism and intolerance .” Robert B. Stacy-Judd (1884-1975)

bb ) Among the classics of Atlantology of the first half of the twentieth century that are little known in this country are Robert Benjamin Stacy-Judd’s, 1939, major work: Atlantis – Mother of Empires . [1] This opus represents one of the great Atlantic studies in the school of Ignatius Donnelly (1831-1901), in which the classical theory of Atlantological diffusionism is represented in a modified and updated variation.

Book-of-the-Week

Recently, while organizing the books on the shelves at our new location, I was reminded of yet another fantastic collectible within our Robert C. Girard Collection. It seemed serendipitous considering this recent New York Postheadlined article,Incredible discovery made inside Great Pyramid of Giza, wherein it states that, “Researchers modeled the distribution of electromagnetic fields inside the pyramid while studying the interactions of electrical waves. Scientists have deduced that the pyramid concentrates this electromagnetic energy in its hidden chambers, which include rooms containing the remains of Pharaoh Khufu and his wife. … And the team’s analysis shows that the powerful pyramid concentrates electromagnetic energy in its internal chambers.” Of course the article goes on to state, “But scientists believe the unusual discovery about the electromagnetic energy in the pyramid is just a coincidence.

Perhaps our book of the week has some insights into this discovery? Well, whatever the quality and veracity of the information held within this week’s tome, we’re pleased as punch to have it since it is inscribed by the author to none other than classic contactee, George Van Tassel!

The ADAM Research Project Begins
#TheADAMResearchProject – The ADAM Research Project, an acronym for Acquisition & Data Analysis of Materials, will focus on the collection and scientific evaluation of material samples obtained through reliable reports of advanced aerospace vehicles of unknown origin. From time to time, various sources have collected material samples reported to have come from advanced aerospace vehicles of unknown origin (popularly known as UAP – Unidentified Aerial Phenomena – or UFOs.) Those sources include private citizens, foreign aerospace investigatory committees, aerospace operators and government organizations. As these materials have come to light, they can be made available for inspection. Given the potential significance of such findings, To The Stars Academy has made it a Tier-1 priority to use its resources to subject these materials to detailed and rigorous scientific evaluation whenever feasible. As soon as TTS Academy is notified that materials are available, a thorough effort will be made to document their origin and credibility, followed by the establishment of chain-of-custody procedures and ownership protocols. In addition to reviewing the materials for their potential significance as evidence of exotic origin, the analysis will evaluate materials for such characteristics as exceptional strength, lightweight build and any unusual advanced properties that potentially could contribute to the development of exciting new technologies in the future. As a first step, TTS Academy has established a contract with EarthTech International, Inc., (www.earthtech.org) a well-respected research think tank in Austin, Texas, to evaluate the properties of the available materials. Under the leadership of Dr. Harold E. Puthoff, a former Senior Advisor and Subcontractor to the Pentagon’s AATIP program (Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program) and current VP of Technology for TTS Academy, EarthTech is well-positioned to head up this materials research plan.”

August 8th, 2018 – Austin, Texas

Hello again!

I am a bit embarrassed at how long its been since the last newsletter. I’ll save you all the excuses I might want to throw out there … suffice to say, I better get something sent out ASAP.

Some quick updates first… the OPAC (Online Public Access Catalog) is not up yet, and the Open House / Re-Launch-Party isn’t scheduled yet. But we’re working on all that as fast as we can. We’ve organized several successful weekends worth of Volunteer “Library Organizing” Opportunities. You can find out more about volunteering at the Anomaly Archives at our two volunteerism websites: VolunteerMatch.org and GivePulse.com

Video-of-the-Week

Recently, I’ve been listening to several episodes of (researcher and radio host) Greg Bishop‘s latest podcast archives of his recent Radio Misterioso interview shows. Among these gems is one I’ve been listening to over and over again – his interview with researcher David Perkins. David was to be one of the many speakers I had scheduled for the ill-fated National UFO Conference in 2001. He is perhaps the person whose ideas are closest to my own – at least as they relate to possible true sources of the UFO phenomenon. He senses the same potentials of abuse by the powers-that-be, for mythological engineering and developing belief systems towards political actions, as I do. But it’s his other ideas about the “TrUFOs,” the true UFO phenomenon, that interest me the most. He is one of the few people exploring UFOs and related phenomena from an ecological systems perspective. David thinks of UFOs, associated paranormal activity, and the Cattle Mutilation phenomenon as part of an  “Evolutionary Imperative Theory” that could originate from a Gaian (global super organism) Overmind; a sort of survival strategy from the unconscious (of either the planet or humanity itself). Undercurrents evident within encounter narratives flow through the collective unconscious and influence us through UFO reports and science fiction, and perhaps reflect this organism’s survival strategy: to evolve humanity spaceward; to get us off the earth and colonizing other planets, thus making us less vulnerable to extinction – while preparing us for inevitable contact with true aliens through theatrical “alien” close encounters. This is perhaps the evolutionary intent of such a potential planetary organism. In one sense he is advocating for the archetype of the Trickster to be reconsidered as an elemental force of nature. This and so much more are explored in this excellent Radio Misterioso interview. I highly recommend it to anyone who thinks there may be value in these alternative UFOlogical perspectives. So check out!

In the meantime, you should also watch the Video-of-the-Week (below) that features David Perkins giving a lecture on Paranormal Phenomena and the Gaian Mind (circa 2004).

 

Book-of-the-Week

If you’re not listening to Aaron Gulyas’ podcast The Saucer Life, you are missing out on a wealth of informative historical insights into the literature surrounding the UFO phenomenon. One of Aaron’s latest podcast (and a fellow Fortean’s enthusiasm for links i posted to articles about Contactee Buck Nelson) serves as the inspiration for this issue’s Book-of-the-Week.

 

Email Newsletter: Anomalous Headline News

This week’s email newsletter features another great bunch of links we’ve posted to our Flipboard online magazine account. Of specific note…

The latest news on the To-The-Stars-Academy and Pentagon AATIP UFO “disclosure”… including the appearance (and then disappearance) of Luis Elizondo’s Pentagon resignation letter, launch of a TTSA sub-program called A.D.A.M. Research Project that is being run by Austin’s own Hal Puthoff, plus the latest I-Team Exclusives, analysis of Defense Intelligence Reference Documents, and a comprehensive Media Archive preserving coverage of these topics.

Nick Redfern reminisces about the 2005 Texas Ghost Lights Mini Conference that was organized by Texas Bigfoot researcher Rob Riggs, sponsored by the Anomaly Archives, and MC’d by me (SMiles Lewis).

My Trip To Mars, The Moon, And Venus
by Buck Nelson

Aaron Gulyas’ Saucer Life podcast episode covering the Buck Nelson’s contactee saga:

Encounter 601: Me and You and a Dog Named Bo

It’s back to the 1950s this week with one of the most interesting Contactees of that period, Buck Nelson. Giant dogs, rants about canned pork and beans, the odd phenomenon of present day folks “revising” Contactee books, get-rich-quick schemes, the Queen of Atlantis, saucer conventions, entrepreneurial spirit, and re-working the Ten Commandments. It’s all here in Encounter 601 of The Saucer Life.

The Anomaly Archives Weekly Email Newsletter

May 29th, 2018 – Austin, Texas

Greetings everyone!

It’s taken me even longer than usual to get this latest newsletter “out the door” and into your inbox. We’ve been hard at work unpacking the books onto our new shelves and moving more of the remaining materials from our off-site locations over into our new location. We’ve had our first board meeting in the new space and added a new Advisory Board member – more on that soon.

At the end of last month, between the previous eNews issue and this one, I took a vacation to the 3rd annual ParaMania UnConference in New Orleans and met up with broadcasters / podcasters Tim Binnall and Greg Bishop, as well as researchers / writers Joshua Cutchin and Kenn Thomas while also seeing a gaggle of dear para-interested UFOlk friends, including artist and writer RPJ aka Red Pill Junkie. At the end of that celebration, Tim Binnall did a live webcast saying farewell to his Binnall-of-America interview podcast formula that he’d been conducting since 2005. Check out the archived podcast and reflective article here:

Meanwhile, we are getting very excited about hosting an Open House event in the near future. Stay tuned for details. In the meantime, please familiarize yourself with our new location in the heart of Austin, just South East of downtown and just North of Lady Bird Lake (the Colorado River):

55 North IH-35 (Frontage Road), Suite 260,

Austin, Texas 78702

New OPAC (Online Public Access Catalog)

COMING SOON!  We have a new online catalog that will prove very helpful to all. You can take a peak at what it will be like by going here:

Nearly a decade ago we experimented with the services of LibraryThing.org and we recently rediscovered them and there new TinyCat online catalog service. The version of the collection you see there is a kind of snapshot of the Anomaly Archives’ collection circa 2009. We are in the process of updating it to include our thousands of books and magazines that we’ve added in the decade since. You can go there now and get a sense of what it will be like… below are some screenshots of the main page and an individual book’s sub-page. We’ll tell you more about this new OPAC once it’s been updated with our current collections holdings.

Book-of-the-Week

Recently a friend invited me to do one of those Facebook lists: the “Seven Days, Seven Books” variety. Picking only 7 meaningful / important-to-me books was a fun challenge. These are by no means my “Ultimate Top 7” but they reflect the main range of interest I have and include some fiction but mostly non-fiction.

This issue’s Book-of-the-Week choice is a fantastic and fun Fortean tome that I’ve been slowly reading this past year – taking my time to soak-in the truly bizarre story of Gef, the talking mongoose. Below are my seven selections from the aforementioned Facebook list…

SMiles’ 7 Days / 7 Books List

  • Day 1 – Neuromancer by William Gibson, Fortean
  • Day 2 – Messengers of Deception by Jacques Vallee
  • Day 3 – The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch by Philip K. Dick
  • Day 4 – Cyberbiological Studies of the Imaginal Component in the UFO Contact Experience edited by Dennis Stillings
  • Day 5 – Battle for the Mind: The Mechanics of Indoctrination, Brainwashing and Thought Control by William Sargant
  • Day 6 – Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson
  • Day 7 – Gef! The Strange Tale of an Extra-Special Talking Mongoose by Christopher Josiffe

 

Videos-of-the-Week

We’re sharing a couple of videos in this issue … first is a new YouTube archive of our very first Anomaly Archives eNews Podcasts produced back in 2005. The second is titled “Calling Occupants” and is a relaxed exploration of modern UFO Contact Culture featuring interviews with Grant Cameron, Stan Friedman and other notables.

Listen to all of our past (discontinued) podcast series at the link here:

 

Headline News Section

As usual, we have a ton of news links below in our Anomaly Headlines section … sadly, there have been a number of people passing over, from the paranormal’s most prolific writer, Brad Steiger, to one of the most controversial para-publishers, Adam Parfrey of Feral House publishing.

In the links below you’ll find articles about the ongoing investigations into and revelations about the Pentagon’s “UFO” program that contracted with billionaire Bob Bigelow’s aerospace company (which is now tied to the To The Stars campaign run by DeLonge, Puthoff, Elizondo and others), plus news links about continuing controversies surrounding MUFON, many mainstream articles about Bigfoot, Cryptozoology, Lake Monsters, Fortean Phenomena, Parapsychology Research, Library and Information Science, Magic and Technology and much more. All these great Anomaly News headline links can also be viewed via our Flipboard Magazine…

Book of the Week…

Gef! The Strange Tale of an Extra-Special Talking Mongoose

by Christopher Josiffe

Gef is visible in the weeds in the lower right corner of the full cover.

“I am the fifth dimension! I am the eighth wonder of the world!”

“During the mid-1930s, British and overseas newspapers were full of incredible stories about Gef, a ‘talking mongoose’ or ‘man-weasel’ who had allegedly appeared in the home of the Irvings, a farming family in a remote district of the Isle of Man.

The creature was said to have the ability to talk in several languages, to sing, to steal objects from nearby farms and to eavesdrop on local people, such that they became uneasy at the farmer’s seeming ability to be able to tell them their most private goings-on.

Despite written reports, magazine articles and books, several photographs, fur samples and paw prints, voluminous correspondence and signed witness statements, there is still no consensus as to what was really happening to the Irving family.

Hoax? Mental illness? A poltergeist? The possession of an animal by an evil spirit? Now you can read all the evidence and decide for yourself.

Seven years’ research and interviews, photographs (many previously unseen), interviews with surviving witnesses, visits to the site – all are presented here in this new book, the first examination of the case for 70 years.”
