UFO Review issue 17; Very Bad Taste Edition
- UFO Review issue 17 is now available at http://www.uforeview.net
and as usual you can download it from either of the two top left
hand buttons on the site depending on what format you want to
read it in.
We are pleased to bring you an edition that is bound to cause
offence to everyone in some shape or form and even your editor
thinks parts of it are unacceptable. Oh, the giddy world of
ufology! And if by chance you're not offended, then your ire
will be stirred by the opinion and posturing prevalent
throughout this most scurrilous and yet entertaining and deeply
amusing edition of the profound and the superficial. Starting
1). I like dick - Interview with Paul Kimball
Why does no one like Paul Kimball? OK that's not true; lots of
people do like him but he has this knack of drawing out from
some the most vehement and profound irrational dislike.
"Irrational" to me because although I certainly see a flawed
human being, I quite like the guy. Is it because he dares to
hold strong and adamant opinions? Is it because his blog is
successful and argumentative? Is it because of his controversial
politics? Is it because he's an informed Canadian?
In this lengthy and revealing interview, Paul pretty much bares
all; his upbringing, his professional regrets, his successes,
how he got into films, what he wishes for Ufology's future, what
he thinks of Alfred Lehmberg, and in the latter part of the
interview, he and I "get at it" as he is pushed and probed on
his Ufological views and opinions and an interesting and
absorbing back and forth ensues. Gripping, entertaining and
another word I can't remember at the moment, this interview will
change your view of Paul completely - you'll like him even less
or more, depending on where you started from at the beginning.
2). Application To Be Featured On The Internationally Renown UFO
Watchdog Web Site (I want to be famous!!). UFO Watchdog is the
scion of badness in Ufology and it's wall of shame gallery
features the mug shots and misdeeds of every huckster ever to
have ufologically sinned. Your editor pleads with Royce Meyers
to be inducted into those hallowed halls of fame
3). Interview With Chris Coote
For 15 years, Chris Coote was the principle Radar Operator for
the MoD at Eskmeals in Cumbria, working for the old MoD, Serco
(an offshoot of RCA) and finally QinetiQ. He was involved in the
collection, manipulation and archival storage of sensitive
positional data. We talk to him!
4). Tim Good Speaks. To no one in particular.
5). The Voynich Manuscript And The Kolbrin Bible By Kithra
Does anyone remember those exam questions that began with the
words: compare and contrast? Dont panic, Im not setting an
exam question, and Im not really going to either compare or
contrast the two documents Im about to write about. However,
neither text is very well known and the only similarity with
compare and contrast is that one is accepted as being a
genuine manuscript, whilst the other is probably a fake.
6). The Whit and Wisdom of CRAP
7). Book Reviews Are Back
We look at:
"The Universe Wants To Play" (Anomalist 12 Various authors) in
which Nick Redfern talks to us about his contributory chapter
and goes on to further screw with my mind.
A belated and utterly filthy and unnecessary review of Clancys
effort "Abducted: How People Come to Believe They Were Kidnapped
by Aliens". Appalling - both the book and the review.
"An American Demonology: Flying Saucers Over the White House" a
marvellous tome from that old war horse Colin Bennett
8). Up and Coming Conferences of Note
9). Happy Fun Days Are Here Boys And Girls As Uncle Stuart Shows
You How To Make Your Very Own UFO Lantern.
Sadly, that's all but in fairness, it's probably more than you
can take anyway. Or would want to!
