anomalyarchivesThe Anomaly Archives Weekly Email Newsletter

August 14th, 2016 – Austin, Texas

It’s been a couple of weeks since the last issue… the newsletter will likely continue along in the near future in irregularly scheduled installments.

Successful anomalous events organized by and/or featuring friends and acquaintances have recently occurred across North America – sadly, I wasn’t able to attend any of them. These ranged from the Cryptozoological Dogman Symposium organized by Ken Gerhard (and featuring Nick Redfern, Lyle Blackburn and others) to the East Coast Paracon (featuring friends Greg Bishop, Paul Kimball, Aaron Gulyas, Tim Binnall, and others) and down here in Texas, theEdinburg “Out of this World” UFO Festival (organized by Noe Torres and featuring David Hatcher Childress, Nick Redfern, Ben Hansen, Lynne Kitei, and Stephen Andrasko).

Sadly, the field of UFO inquiry has lost another great seeker… Errol Bruce-Knapp. Many in the field of (what passes for) UFO “research” won’t know who he is but they should. I came to know of him through his moderation of one of the oldest and most important UFO email lists, UFO UpDates (Archives 1996-2013). You can learn more about him (including his involvement in off-shore Pirate Radio DJ years) and his important contributions facilitating communication and hosting a community of UFO truth seekers by listening to these interviews here (on the Spectrum Radio Network), and here (with fellow Canadian Paul Kimball). He hosted several terrestrial radio shows and transitioned to internet streaming and podcasting his Strange Days… Indeed (and Mind Shift) programs. I was honored to be a guest on his show back on September 11th, 2007 (MP3). Good luck finding all of his wonderful interviews of some of the best UFO researchers. Here you can listen to him talk with legendary Area-51 researcher Glen Campbell(MP3), who hosted Errol’s UFO UpDates list site (and maintains the Archives).

“It’s alive… ALIVE!!” Austin Mufon has been resurrected as MUFON-ATX.

A couple of weeks ago I was surprised to learn that the local MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) chapter had been re-launched and begun monthly meetings held way up in the furthest reaches of North West Austin. I was involved in Austin Mufon from about 1990 until 2012 when its chain of leadership was finally broken. I led the group from about 1999 – 2002.

Above: Robert Powell “shares about cases from Georgia, England, Utah, Iowa, New York, and Canada as well as information on the process of UFO investigations.”

I was excited to learn of these new monthly meetings and attended the second such meeting held on July 31st. The meetings are at 7pm on the last Sunday of each month at Palm Beach Vapors. July’s meeting featured Austinite and Mufon’s Director of Research / Founder & Leader of Mufon’s Science Review Board. Also present were Texas Mufon leaders Steve Hudgeons (Director of Investigations & former State Director of Texas) and Teresa Turner (State Director of Texas – and State Section Director). There were about a dozen attendees from around Austin and outside the Central Texas metro area. The highlight of the meeting was getting a sneak peak of Robert Powell’s upcoming presentation for the annualMufon Symposium 2016 – Orlando, FL – August 25th-28th whose theme is “UFOs From Our Oceans to Outer Space.” Robert’s presentation is MUFON’s Top 10 UFO Cases for 2015. You can watch this sneak preview thanks to another attendee I was glad to meet, Daniel Jones of the Vortexas Network, whom I’d briefly met a few months ago in Dallas at the ParaMania event.

For this installment of the Book-of-the-Week we feel it appropriate to highlight the aforementioned Robert Powell’s contribution to the printed knowledge-base of UFO history. Robert was kind enough to speak about that history to our Anomaly Archives audience in his Lecture in 2014 (Video).

Our Monthly Public Meetings Are Changing! We Need Your Help! Why Not Volunteer? We’re transitioning our monthly public meetings into volunteerism opportunities. I’ll be up at the Anomaly Archives Saturday, August 27th from 1-3pm to train new volunteers on various on-going processes as well as upcoming special volunteer projects.

The Anomaly Archives holds Monthly Meetings on the Fourth Saturday of Each Month. Contact SMiles Lewis via email for updates. The meetings are held from 1-3pm at the INACS / Anomaly Archives headquarters located in North West Austin.

Coming up in September, the Anomaly Archives will be holding its annual Free Lecture Event. This year’s talk will be presented by former military Remote Viewer Paul Smith. Details Coming Soon!

Until next time…

Book of the Week…
UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry
By Michael D. Swords and Robert PowellWith contributions from Clas Svahn, Vicente-Juan Ballester Olmos, Bill Chalker, Barry Greenwood, Richard Thieme, Jan Aldrich, Steve Purcell
 ufos-and-govt
“Governments have been concerned about UFO sighting reports since WWII, but historians have never made a concerted attempt to understand their often contradictory responses to the phenomenon. How could something of such potential technological and national security consequence have left no visible trace in the history books? Whether it’s a conspiracy or not, the subject has been marginalized to such an extent that it’s as if the military never acted with alarm on the heels of a UFO sighting, as if the intelligence community never took up the issue behind closed doors, as if government research and development efforts never attempted to duplicate the phenomenon. But they have. Robert Powell will discuss how governments, especially the U.S. government, have dealt with the UFO phenomenon and will provide a hypothesis as to why the phenomenon took its roots during WWII.”

July 28th, 2016 – Austin, Texas

I’ve been reading a variety of print books lately, including Jacques Vallée’s latest published journals (Volume 3: 1980-1989), some rare writings of the late Bob Girard, as well as Whitley Strieber & Jeff Kripal’s latest effort. All of which (and more on my mind) get me thinking about fundamentals of UFO research and some of the earliest attempts at grappling with the mystery. Jacques Vallée’s first attempt is our Book-of-the-Week.

We say it each issue but … we hope you enjoy this newsletter and might consider supporting our efforts by Becoming a Member Today!

Book of the Week…
Anatomy of a Phenomenon
aka UFOs in Space
by Jacques Vallée
vallee-anatomy-phenomenon-01

Amazon.com reviews:

This is a classic work by a well known investigator / scientist / researcher that has been around for years. It represents the ‘old school’ if I may, style of Ufology, which is sorely lacking nowadays. Those were the days that a light in the sky (LIT) would be reason for me to run outside and mount a night long skywatch. No hints of implants, abductions, Roswell, Area 51, etc. I truly recommend this work for anyone who is just starting to learn about this forbidden subject (UFOs) and then take it from there, it will be worth the effort.

The Anomaly Archives Weekly Email Newsletter

July 20th, 2016 – Austin, Texas

Given the recent horrific up-tick in America’s Amok Murder-Suicide Rampage Epidemic and the broader global Amok-Season (Amoklauf Würzburg)… I don’t know where to begin or what to focus on, While TV shows as diverse as the original 1968 Hawaii Five-0 pilot episode (“Cocoon“) to the recent Netflix series Stranger Things have long featured isolation-tank brainwashing and MK-Ultra style mind control research, the mainstream media have lagged behind but seem to be finally catching up and taking notice of the vast growing population of people who consider themselves to be victims of psychotronic harassment, aka “T.I.s” (Targeted Individuals).

Long before 2016 Baton Rouge, Louisiana shooter Gavin Long (aka “Cosmo Setepenra”) and before Myron May’s 2014 Florida State University shooting and Aaron Alex’s 2013 Washington Navy Yard shooting, there was Ralph Tortoricci and Robert Joe Moody in 1994, and Scott Panetti in 1992 (and countless others). In the early 1990s I chronicled these alleged Mind Control Survivors within the Mind Kontrol Corner column of my E.L.F. Infested Spaces zine. In 2008 I wrote about (Guide By Voices – Anomaly Magazine) the verifiable research into and commercially available technology capable of inducing voices in the head and driving people crazy.

Perhaps John Keel’s warning in 1979 is coming true…

“Suppose the plan is to process millions of people and at some future date trigger those minds at one time? Would we suddenly have a world of saints or a world of armed maniacs shooting at one another from bell towers?“

                 – UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse, John Keel (1979)

Which reminds me, be sure to check out these latest Video Interviews – UT Tower Shootings: In their own words – A cop, a newsman and two students recount their experiences from that day.

Are these recent shootings and widespread mayhem the long-term fallout from MK-Ultra’s Legacy upon America’s and the world’s collective psyche? How many alleged and confirmed victims of MK-Ultra / Manchurian Candidate Mind Control must we endure?

MK-ULTRA’s Legacy?

[The above slides are from  Part Two of my UFOs & Consciousness – The Fantastic Facts About UFOs, Altered States of Consciousness, and Mind-at-Large, (Part One Here)]

Book-of-the-Week

With so much mainstream coverage of the old mind-controlled assassin meme flowing through the news right now, it seemed as appropriate time as any to highlight one of the most salacious and difficult to verify claims of victimhood at the hands of alleged MK-Ultra abuse networks, those of self-proclaimed “CIA Sex Slave” Cathy O’Brien and her conspiracy porn pulp-thriller, Trance-Formation of America. Reminiscent of the claims in the 1976 book The Control of Candy Jones, Cathy O’Brien’s tales caught fire within the right-wing militia / conspiracy culture of the 90s. While there exist reams of evidence for the many varied sub-projects of MK-Ultra, it is Cathy O’Brien who most popularized the claims of CIA child-abuse known as Project Monarch. However, to my knowledge, no such program has ever been verified with documentation the way that so many other Ultra projects have been. Nonetheless, just as there are many people who claim to be Targeted Individuals enduring Gang-Stalking and Electronic Harassment, so too are there many people who claim to have been subjected to ritual abuse networks (Satanic or otherwise) as part of a wide variety of mind control research projects.

The Anomaly Archives just happens to have an autographed copy of “The True Life Story of a CIA Mind Control Slave” signed by Cathy and co-author Mark Phillips.
It goes with out saying, but here I am saying it … Before reading further into the claims of alleged abuse survivor Cathy O’Brien, beware: TRIGGER WARNING!!

Meanwhile, please also check out links below to coverage of the recently released 28-Pages (PDF at intelligence.house.gov) showing much of what many of the best “911 Truthers” were saying all along; that there was a nexus of Saudi government & Bush family regime involvement in the September 11th attacks.
All this and more awaits you in the links below..

Mind Kontrol / Copycat Effects / Twilight Language / SynchroMysticism

“In an interview with a podcast host in March, Mr. Long identified himself as a member of the online community of so-called targeted individuals, people who believe they are being harassed with mind-control weapons and by armies of stalkers.”

 – Online Trail Illuminates Baton Rouge Gunman’s Path to Violence – Richard Fausset, Frances Robles and John Eligon, NYTimes.com

“Numbering in the thousands, the self-described targeted individuals, or T.I.s, say that they are being tortured with mind-control weapons and put under surveillance by armies of covert agents known as gang stalkers.” …

“Yet Mr. Long’s attack represented at least the third recent mass shooting to be associated with people who believed they were being targeted by a government conspiracy. Myron May, who in 2014 shot three people at Florida State University, left behind videos in which he meticulously described his experience of being gang-stalked. And many members of the movement believe that Aaron Alexis, who killed 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard in 2013, also identified as a targeted individual.”

July 14th, 2016 – Austin, Texas

After my weeklong “staycation” it’s back to the grind of the ole day job. The week’s nearly over but between work and world events … well, it’s enough to drive a person to drink. Luckily enough, marketing gurus have seen the light and offer a bevy of beverages with some adult kick!

As I’ve mentioned before, the origins of my personal Cargo Culture Collection of weird UFO & Alien themed knick-knacks arises from Other People’s Compulsion to give such trinkets to me because of my lifelong UFO-Obsession (and membership in Anomaloholics Anonymous; the Anomaly Archives’ secret Double-AA-Entendre).

So it’s no surprise when a family member shows up with some Outer Space Vodka bottle shaped like the archetypal Big-Headed Black-Almond-Shape-Eyed Alien but with old-school Gaian Green Glass instead of the Dull Modernist Gray/Grey. So I make the best of the situation and combine it with some Bloody Revolution Bloody-Mary Mix and film it all in slow-motion! I’m not joking – check out the videos here: Outer Space (Alien Head) Vodka & Bloody Revolution Bloody-Mary Mix: Parts ZeroOneTwoThree, & Four
While yet again at the liquor store (I should own stock) I see a cool zine-scene-like newsletter with an early 1900s flair. The title and headline catch my eye:

the Unusual Times
– A Review Of All Things Unusual –
History’s Greatest Hoaxes

Apparently, the Hendrick’s Gin company have a whole “Society of the Unusual” marketing strategy. I wonder if it’s just the brainchild of the advertising firm or if there might be a core of actual Anomalist / Fortean / Zetetic interest somewhere at the heart of the company? Nah! Probably not.

BTW – This issue of the Anomaly Archives eNews has NOT been brought to you by any alcoholic beverage sponsorship – though we might be open to that.

Until next week… “May We Live In Unusual Times.” Cheers!

Book of the Week…

Anacalypsis:
An attempt to draw aside the veil of the Saitic Isis
Or an inquiry into the origin of languages, nations, and religions

Volumes One & Two – 1836

By Godfrey Higgins

“The work is the product of more than twenty years of research, during which Higgins tried to uncover “a most ancient and universal religion from which all later creeds and doctrines sprang”.[1] It includes several maps and lithographic plates of Druidical Monuments. The book itself details many of Higgins’ beliefs and observations about the development of religion. Among these was his theory that a secret religious order, which he labeled “Pandeism” (from Pans- or Pandu- referring to a family of Gods, appending with -ism), had continued from ancient times to the present day, stretching at least from Greece to India, and possibly having once covered the entire world:

“All this seems to confirm the very close connexion which there must have been in some former time, between Siam, Afghanistan, Western Syria, and Ireland. Indeed I cannot doubt that there has been really one grand empire, or one Universal, one Pandæan, or one Catholic religion, with one language, which has extended over the whole of the world; uniting or governing at the same time…”

Among the many unusual theories presented in this book is that both the Celtic Druids and the Jews originated in India – and that the name of the Biblical Abraham is really a variation of the word Brahma, created by shifting the last letter to the beginning: Abrahma. Higgins used the term “Pandeism” to describe the religious society that he purported had existed from ancient times, and at one time had been known throughout the entire world. Higgins believed this practice continued in secret until the time of his writing, in the 1830s in an area stretching from Greece to India.”

No time for small-talk this week…

Below you’ll find our Book-of-the-Week which is one of many Spanish language titles from the Girard Collection. This one is about the infamous Ica Stones of Peru, considered by most to be an admitted hoax by farmer / artist / conman Basilio Uschuya who “said he produced a patina by baking the stone in cow dung.” The stones depict creationist type artworks featuring humans and dinosaurs living and working together as well as advanced technology implying ancient astronaut themes. Several of the stones depict highly sexual content.

As usual we have a smattering of UFO, Parapsyhology, Mysterious Phenomena (like the Worldwide Hum) and Deep State / Parapolitical news links in ourAnomalous Headlines section.

El Mensaje de las Piedras Grabadas de Ica

“In the vicinity of the village of Ocuicareptilian2caje and Ica, in Peru, a collection of rounded stones . . . has been amassed by Dr. Javier Cabrera….The people are shown hunting or struggling with a variety of monsters that resemble BRONTOSAURS, TRICERATOPS, STEGOSAURS, AND PTERODACTYLS . . . human beings are portrayed as having domesticated animals that appear to be DINOSAURS and are using them for transportation and warfare. People are shown using telescopes, looking at the stars, and performing surgery”

June 22nd, 2016 – Austin, Texas

The Anomaly Archives was recently contacted by someone acting as executor for the estate of a woman who was once active in Austin’s local UFO community. We were invited to look through the library of the deceased for books that we’d like to add to our collection before the upcoming estate sale was opened to the public. After traveling over forty miles into the hill country I met with the executor at the home of the deceased and began going through the voluminous library. Besides two full boxes of books and a few years worth of MUFON UFO Journal issues, the executor provided us some more personal items including photos chronicling some strange experiences of the deceased as well as one of her UFO-themed paintings (pictured here).

It was obvious that this local UFO enthusiast was a tremendous fan of abductee / researcher Dr. Karla Turner as evidenced by the multiple copies of her books held in the library. Among the gems we came away with were three non-English editions of Karla Turner’s book Taken: Inside the Alien-Human Abduction Agenda. These include a Japanese, Italian, and German editions. The Japanese edition lists Shinichiro Namiki as associated with its publication, where as the German edition lists Linda Moulton Howe as having written the foreword (likely the same as in this recent English digital ebook “reprint” edition). The Italian version has a preface by Gianfranco de Turris who is an Italian journalist, essayist, writer, and scholar of “fantastic” literature in Italy. I’m really hoping to find an English translation of his preface somewhere online.

So, with Dr. Karla Turner so fresh in my mind I’ve selected her second book as our Book-of-the-Week for this installment!

Meanwhile, in this week’s Anomalous Headlines … check out the interesting articles on video of a supposed “Texas ‘Belgium’ Triangle UFO,” as well as the $10,000 reward for reading the infamous Roswell Ramey Memo, a Dallas’ JFK assassination researcher’s successful free-speech challenge, and many more below!

Last but not least – Our Monthly Public Meetings Are Changing! We Need Your Help! Why Not Volunteer? We’re transitioning our monthly public meetings into volunteerism opportunities. I’ll be up at the Anomaly Archives this Saturday afternoon to train new volunteers on various on-going processes as well as upcoming special volunteer projects.

The Anomaly Archives holds Monthly Meetings on the Fourth Saturday of Each Month. Contact SMiles Lewis via email for updates. The meetings are held from 1-3pm at the INACS / Anomaly Archives headquarters located in North West Austin.

Book of the Week…
Taken
Inside the Alien-Human Abduction Agenda

by Karla Turner

Taken by Karla Turner - Japanese edition

TAKEN INTO THE FRINGE

RESEARCHER FOCUS: Dr. Karla Turner
by SMiles Lewis

My first exposure to abduction researcher/ experiencer Dr. Karla Turner was on September 26, 1992. She was speaking to an audience of approximately 200 people in Austin, Texas. The mini-conference also featured Ed Conroy and George Wingfield, and was organized by the local Austin MUFON chapter. I have seen very little from abduction researchers that I qualified as being of any significance, so Dr. Turner was a particularly unexpected surprise.

She comes across as very strong willed, a trait she may already have had, but which could have been tempered by her interactions with this phenomena. She admits to not knowing the origin of UFOs or their occupants. She simply reports the data that she gathers and experiences herself (about three hundred cases at that time). Some have been critical of her calling attention to “negative” cases. She admits to reporting on those aspects, but is quick to point out that, a) these reports exist, and other researchers are sweeping them under the rug, and b) there are already a number of sources for cases showing “positive” interactions with supposed benevolent entities. Part of her focus seems to be an attempt to strike a balance. How can we gain an objective perspective if we are not hearing all the data?

This mini-conference coincided with the release of her first book on the subject, Into The Fringe . Shortly after her tall< I bought the book and thoroughly enjoyed it. It details the emergance of the UFO and abduction phenomena into her family’s life and their struggle with the ongoing experiences. It is a very personal account which begins in 1987-1988.

Karla earned her B.A. from California State University, her M.A. from the University of Nottingham in England, and her Ph.D. in Old English Studies from the University of North Texas. She is a skeptic in the best sense of the word, but she does believe that something extraordinary is going on.

Her 1992 Austin speech was less about her own experiences, and more about the overall points of interest that she noticed in her research (300 cases she investigated with the help of Barbara Bartholic and others-Barbara had worked with Jacques Vallee on the mysterious cattle mutilations sometimes associated with UFOs). In her speech Karla made twenty specific points regarding trends noticed in the data. These trends are not specifically found in her book “Fringe,” although they are there thematically. The trends reflect darker sides of hidden memory and sexual encounters, which seem to be power plays to dominate the abductee, rather than simple hybridization studies.

These trends continue to be seen in the eight case studies in her most recent book, Taken – Inside The Alien / Human Abduction Agenda. In the book, and during her speech at the July 1994 Annual International MUFON Symposium in Austin, Texas, she made some very important assertions regarding the UFO and abduction phenomena:

ufos-consciousness-2-Slide30

“The abductee also learns from experience that the aliens induce an altered perceptive state in humans during every encounter. Employed for control, it can be used to prevent any undesired responses from the abductee. And the altered state also prevents any objective assessment of the situation by the witness. This means that the witness can only report what was seen, felt, and heard, which is not necessarily a reflection of what actually occurred. By inducing and manipulating altered consciousness in the abductee, the aliens assume full control of the situation and thus exert control over the data reported by the witness.

Abductees report alien-controlled information. This is a fact abduction researchers must face. ….. Until the day we can unmask the alien illusions, however, we can at least study the entire body of reported data, controlled though it may be, trying to learn more about why certain images and events are employed and what they can tell us about the covert directors of these scenarios.”

This statement and her coining of the term Virtual Reality Scenario to describe these altered perceptions are the best recent developments within the abduction research field. They enable us to discuss these experiences as REAL, but with the added potential inherent in describing some encounters as non-physical while there are still other more physical encounters.

Another positive aspect of Taken (in my estimation) is the inclusion of much testimony described as “UFO dreams.” Once again we see the flowing together of dream experiences” with “real” experiences and hypnotically retrieved “memories.” The results are fascinating! Though much of the abductee narratives could be seen as particularly negative, the overwhelming feeling that I came away with after reading the book, and which the abductees themselves seem to have come away with, is a deep sense of ambiguity and indeterminacy. Even if this seems daunting in the search for truth it could just be the ultimate result of our encounters with the unknown. Perhaps we can take some solace in Dr. Turner’s belief that these intelligences are truly “physical, finite and fallible.” If this is so, and they are not some aspect of ourselves or God then we may indeed be able to develop defenses against their intrusions into our reality.

The Anomaly Archives Weekly Email Newsletter

June 15th, 2016 – Austin, Texas

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of our electronic newsletter.

normalThis past Sunday marked my 45th birthday. It also marked the latest milestone in America’s Amok Murder-Suicide Rampage Epidemic. As some of our readers may know, I am a survivor one of the earliest (pre-epidemic level) mass-shootings by an apparent “Lone Nut.” Not the infamous 1966 UT Tower Sniper incident (whose 50th anniversary will coincide this year with the implementation of UT’s new Campus Carry policy) but rather the lesser known 1979 San Antonio, Texas, Fiesta’s Battle of Flowers Parade shooting. In high school I wrote about the incident (Danger: Parade – Thank God for Mother’s Intuition). On the March 11th, 2008 episode of our PsiOp-Radio show I talked about it with co-host Mack White (starts at about the 48-50 minute mark in the MP3 archive). Mack and I have covered so many of these incidents on the show, talking about the psychology of suicidal contagion known as the Copycat / Werther Effects as well as the potential manufacturing of such “Lone Nuts” as part of sundry covert operations known variously as Agents Provocateurs, False Flags, Strategy of Tension, and even the infamous Manchurian Candidate, Sleeper Agent, MK-Ultra Mind Kontrol Assassins, etc. So on the one-hand, as a survivor, it truly pains me to see such rampant dismissal of these types of events as being “fake” / “totally staged” / “false flags” – over and over, with every new shooting. And yet, I’m parapolitically aware of this country’s deep-state history of mass-murder for political gain as well as its history of exploring how to make people kill, whether through standardized military indoctrination or illicit mind control experimentation.

Whatever the ultimate cause behind Sunday’s horrific mass-murder, it seems only fitting that this issue’s Book-of-the-Week should be Loren Coleman’s important 2004 book The Copycat Effect: How The Media and Popular Culture Trigger The Mayhem in Tomorrow’s Headlines. It’s a difficult read on a difficult topic. Loren is better known for his work in the Fortean field of Cryptozoology – but he’s also known for his interest in and seeming prophetic ability at, deciphering the Twilight Language that permeates the world of these Mass Amok events as well as the Name Game synchronicities that seem to inform the world of other strange phenomena.

Mystery HummmmMind Control

Mystery HumMeanwhile, in this week’s Anomaly News round-up there are several articles of interest including a New York Times article, United States of Paranoia, about the people who feel they are the victims of Gang-Stalking. That article even touches on those who feel they are being attacked by E.L.F. mind control technology and Mystery Hum related phenomena. Two years ago, Jared Keller wrote another excellent and comprehensive article on the Mystery Hums that also touched on the mind control element but also documents the various research into finding the sounds ultimate source. Earlier this year, I myself experienced a series of mysterious deep humming like effects over a period of time. In this week’s news round-up we also have a new article from The Guardian about the Windsor Hum.

We also have links to a Boston Globe article about something I and others have noticed and commented upon for several years now; that there are seemingly fewer alien abductions being reported since 2001. Also, check out the (probably fake) video that’s been circulating of an alleged V-shaped craft floating above Austin, Texas, as well as the many other interesting news links in this week’s issue.

June 7th, 2016 – This week’s installment includes Lewis Spence’s The Fairy Tradition in Britain as our Book-of-the-Week. I absolutely love the cover art for this rare edition that’s part of our Bob Girard Collection.

Among this week’s Anomaly Headlines are some links to articles about the Order of the Solar Temple “suicides” as well as an excellent documentary (The Order of the Solar Temple) about this still open case of apparent mass-murder involving a UFO cult and its probable connections to deep-state parapolitical money laundering and covert operations.

Well, that’s all for now. See you next week!

Book of the Week…
The Fairy Tradition in Britain
by Lewis Spence

“I should add, however, that, particularly on the occasion of Samhain, bonfires were lit with the express intention of scaring away the demonic forces of winter, and we know that, at Bealltainn in Scotland, offerings of baked custard were made within the last hundred and seventy years to the eponymous spirits of wild animals which were particularly prone to prey upon the flocks – the eagle, the crow, and the fox, among others. Indeed, at these seasons all supernatural beings were held in peculiar dread. It seems by no means improbable that these circumstances reveal conditions arising out of a later solar pagan worship in respect of which the cult of fairy was relatively greatly more ancient, and perhaps held to be somewhat inimical.”

― Lewis Spence, British Fairy Origins

Spence, Lewis The Fairy Tradition in Britain (Rider 1948). LS was by any standards a strange writer. He dedicated, for example, years of his life to proving the existence of Atlantis with reference to Irish and Mexican mythology: don’t do it, Lewis! Of all his meanderings, his work on fairies has survived best. There is though here a misfortune. It is his other fairy book on Fairy Origins, a stimulating but eccentric monograph, which is endlessly reprinted. Whereas The Fairy Tradition, perhaps the best general introduction to the fairies, is rare. In Spence’s mind this was his ‘source’ book. And while The Fairy Tradition is never tedious the sheer bulk of information can rather clog up your brain. Still there is nowhere else where you can get such a concentration of information in so few pages.
