To the right is the cover to my new book, due out in time for the holiday shopping season. I’m excited about this one, not least because it contains a foreword by Nick Redfern, one of the greatest authors on paranormal issues in the world today (not hyperbole, seriously). From the foreword: Aaron Gulyas’ The Chaos Conundrum is […]
I recently appeared on the Reversed Polarity podcast, part of of the Reversed Polarity convention I’ll be appearing at this November in Toronto. It was a fun interview!
Nothing is more satisfying that completing a project (or, at the very least, a significant phase of a project). Most of the things I’ve been working on have really long gestation periods, so it’s nice to see some forward momentum. Extraterrestrials and the American Zeitgeist is moving through the publisher’s pipeline. I spent a shameful […]
Having taken a while off to recover from flying saucer overload, I’m back at I Knew Too Much about Flying Saucers. For your reading convenience, the latest posts are embedded in the side-bar. Check out the newest for the cover of the book, and more excitement.
At 90,003 words (not including notes or bibliography), the not-yet-formally-titled Space Brother book is off to the publisher. A month, I point out, ahead of schedule, as I needed to clear the decks for the upcoming fall semester and some other projects. It may be the first time I’ve submitted anything before the deadline. So […]
I’m about 2/3 of the way through the first major, full on edit of the Saucer Book Project and I’ve been pleasantly surprised so far. More words stayed than I thought would and I’ve been able to add a few thousand here and there, making connections more explicit and strengthening the argument. And, of course, […]
[progpress title="Flying Saucers, Space Brothers, and Interplanetary Femme Fatales" goal="79586" current="79586"] It came in a bit under 80,000 words, but that’s fine. I still have some filling out to do, particularly in the 1970s and 1980s chapter and the conclusion is pretty under-developed. I strongly suspect that the final word total will be closer to […]
[progpress title="Space Brothers on Patrol" goal="85000" current="60175"] I hit 60K words last week. Hoping for as much production this week (shortened due to a trip out of town). I’m still on pace to finish when I want/need to–sooner, if I can find a healthy way to do without sleep. Today’s work will involve the […]
[progpress title="Space Brothers on Patrol" goal="85000" current="51106"] End of the semester = more time for writing. I’m teaching online-only over Spring and Summer sessions so I am getting some traction. My goal is to have all the words down by the end of June, enabling me to hack most them away and replace them with […]
[progpress title="Space Brothers on Patrol" goal="85000" current="40686"] The actual title isn’t Space Brothers on Patrol, but I do need to think about shortening the working title. It would be nice it it fit on the spine. I (barely) met my Spring Break goal of getting past 40,000 words. Things sped up when I finally accepted […]
