 – BOOK OF THE WEEK

Coming in May 2017 is a brand new anthology of critical thinking about the state of UFO research. I am proud to have been asked to contribute to this collection of essays from fourteen amazing researchers. The book is called UFOs: Reframing the Debate and features a diverse array of independent thinkers on all things ufological. The brainchild of editor Robbie Graham (Silver Screen Saucers: Sorting Fact from Fantasy in Hollywood’s UFO Movies), it arose out of the disillusionment he’s felt with popular approaches to the phenomenon (YouTube link). I’m very excited to see this book released as I am optimistic that it might actually help move UFO research forward.

See y’all next issue!

UFOs: Reframing the Debate
Edited by Robbie Graham

IF YOU LIKE YOUR UFO LITERATURE TO CONFIRM WHAT YOU ALREADY ‘KNOW,’ THIS IS NOT THE BOOK FOR YOU!

The UFO field has produced thousands of dedicated researchers over the years, and reams of literature; but to what end? What can we claim to know conclusively today about the underlying nature of UFO phenomena that we didn’t know in the late-1940s? UFO study has always suffered from major organizational and methodological problems. It has also become dangerously self-referential.

If ever we are to further our understanding of the UFO enigma, we must fundamentally reframe our debate. We must wipe the board clean and fill it with new ideas, new theories, even new language. We must be willing to start from scratch when the field stagnates. We must be critical, sober, and free of dogma—ready to rinse away the residue of our own beliefs.

UFOs: Reframing the Debate is a collection of original essays exploring alternative perspectives on UFOs and how we might more usefully study the phenomenon in the 21st Century. The book brings together some of the most progressive and iconoclastic thinkers in the field for an incisive deconstruction of current popular ideas. Critical but constructive, this challenging volume represents a range of differing (even conflicting) alternative viewpoints on UFOs and related phenomena.

UFOs: Reframing the Debate is a cold, hard, slap in the face for ‘UFOlogy,’ a call to break away from established ideas, approaches, and practices, and to boldly tread a new path in quest of understanding what may very well be the greatest mystery of all.
