It is an amusing feature of the Western mind that those people who have had a UFO experience of any kind are judged to be people least worthy of analyzing that experience.[Bennett]
The courts of "proper" debate rule out any odd, highly individualized, comic, or ludicrous or absurd elements. Here we see the most tragic-comic emblem of mankind's philosophy: get rid of the nutcases and there will be revealed the shining truth. [Bennett: 39]

My new Trickster's Realm column is now available at Tim Binnall's BoA: "Absurd Bits" in Fortean Phenomena.
Back in May, I started a very small and free Bigfoot newsletter: Bigfoot From (Outer) Space! It comes out whenever. Meaning, I haven't done up another one since, but I think I'll have something soon. If you want to take a look it's on my Scribd page. Enjoy!
A very excellent idea from Nick Redfern, who's started yet another blog: NICK'S FORTEAN PIC(S) OF THE DAY The blog features photos, images, book covers, etc. of Fortean delights. Fun, delightful and a nice contribution to Fortean history. Hail Fort and thanks Nick!
