Space-Brothers at LOWFI
A few weeks ago, I was asked to write an editorial for the LOWFI site, and which has just been posted. It’s on the Contactee movement.
You can write about anything you like, just as long as it has some kind of western US angle,â€ said Skylaire Alfvegren recently, when she invited me to pen a guest editorial for the League of Western Fortean Intermediatists. Well, given the nature of Skylaireâ€™s invitation, it wasnâ€™t difficult to come up with a subject-matter.
After all, as some of you may know, just a couple of months ago New Page Books published my most recent title: Contactees â€“ A History of Alien-Human Interaction. And as just about anyone and everyone who has ever dared immerse themselves in the strange and twilight realm of all things of a long, blond-haired and space-brotherly nature will know, the West-Coast â€“ and specifically California – is where most of the other-worldly action occurred.
After all, there were the â€œFour Georgesâ€: Adamski, the transplanted Pole, and surely the definitive Contactee, whose purported CA-based encounters with Orthon the E.T. in the early years of the 1950s helped make his Flying Saucers Have Landed book (co-written with Irishman Desmond Leslie) a mammoth-seller; Van Tassel, of both Giant Rock and Integratron fame; Hunt Williamson, who memorably contacted the Space Brothers via the medium of the Ouija board; and King, founder of the Aetherius Society, who ultimately wound up in California, after leaving behind his homeland of England.
