Just dropping a note here to update you on my shenanigans of late. I’ve written yet another ufological book, if you can believe it, called Aliens: The First and Final Disclosure. This is a straightforward narrative, like Urgency., so it’s got the unnecessary humor without the unnecessary swearing and none of the “Wait, is this even a book?” artistic flourishes.
Sometimes I am a writer for the people. You’re welcome, the people, you’re welcome.
The premise is that, thanks to the 2017 reimagining of UFOs into UAP and the broader public dialogue surrounding them, I now have to go back to my roots and call myself an alien abductee to speak to a new audience who doesn’t understand that “alien” and “abduction” don’t really cover it. So that’s what I set out to do. But how long can I keep up the ruse?
Naturally, there will be enough meaty “I never thought of that” stuff in the book for everyone to bite into–even if you’re a vegan. It’s humorous and angry and builds on my previous books, but it’s still also fresh material from the depths. There are some things I need to say that perhaps you need to hear. We’ll just leave it at that.
So that’s my book. I wanted to release it on Roswell crash day, but I doubt it’ll be out before August.
It looks like I’ll also be appearing in someone else’s book. I’ll say more later, if the chapter doesn’t get left on the editor’s floor. Essentially, if I make the cut, this will be a book more people will read than my own. How funny is that?
Also funny is that I was recently included in a paper on French philosopher Henry Corbin at a conference at Harvard University. I feel like I just jumped to the front of the line. Later, ufology!
But I shouldn’t say that. The more I listen back to ye olde Paratopias, the more I realize what great work Jeff Ritzmann and I brought into the subject. This week’s show is a fun recap/moving forward end to season one. And then boom-boom-boom! Three classics: Graham Hancock, the Gettysburg ghost hunt road trip, and the Colin Andrews episode that affected all of our lives. I may actually listen to all of them again. I don’t generally. It’s a lot and with the loss of Jeff, it feels extra heavy.
If you miss the Our Undoing Radio flagship show, it will be back very soon. If you missed my The Experience special with Emma Woods, it’s here: https://www.unknowncountry.com/the-experience/glimpses-of-magonia/
Emma has her first book out! The links to her book and website are in the description. Do check them both out. Our interview is interesting, too, I think. She was kind enough to give me the first interview and I, realizing she’d probably do a million more, shied away from the topics she wanted to talk about because I knew she’d be talking about them elsewhere. So when she gives her next interview, wherever that is, give it a listen, too. It will likely be different!
What else? That’s it. For now. I’m feeling the itch to get back to scribbling for the long-neglected ourundoing.com essay sections. Look forward to more there as soon as this weekend. I’ll also be doing a brand new Paratopia episode, likely after the book launch.
