Well we are in the last stages of getting the book into print. I’ll leave it to your imagination what the galley proofing of a 465 page book involving  some fifty years of history and the extensive citation of military and intelligence documents involves. I wouldn’t recommend it for the faint of heart. Still looking for late June availability but it may be close to July.

In the meantime, I wanted to post an interview I did recently with my friend Doug of the Dallas Action.  We have talked before about the challenges of vetting sources, of historical analysis and exactly how far you can and cannot go out on limbs when you engage in that sort of thing.

If you have ever been interested in both political assassination, especially in the context of the JFK, RFK or MLK cases and in the subject of UFOs as well, you have likely noticed that there are similar challenges and similar pitfalls in both areas of interest. You find disconnects between internal inquiries and official public positions. You find obfuscation, diversions, outright hoaxes,  witness and source recall and vetting issues – and in both instances there are real world issues of classification, security and even counter intelligence activities.

After chatting a bit about Unidentified, Doug and I decided that it might be interesting to do a show about it but also to explore some of the crossover  (no I don’t mean “Dark Skies” …if you missed that TV series look it up on the internet, conspiracy television fiction at its best).  What I mean is crossover in terms of the challenges and how demanding it is to deal historically with subjects that many people consider “fringe” or worse and to do it in a manner which establishes some level of broader credibility.

If that sounds interesting, check out this link for the interview – and enjoy the burst of intense music that gets it going:

  1. […] Unidentified interview June 28, 2017 […]

    • Fascinating Bill, certainly it appears that Young was an inventor who dealt with helicopters and he appears to have have done a good deal of thinking about them in regard to UFOs. This article mentions him http://magonia.haaan.com/2009/helicopter/

      It sounds to me like the Pleiades visitors and related remarks relate to the Billy Muier story out of Switzerland, that came to public attention in the 1970s and still has active followers (note to readers, for full disclosure these are the sorts of things you won’t find in Unidentified). When I don’t include something in one of my books its doesn’t mean I’m not aware of it, it means I don’t find it relevant or credible in regard to the focus of the book.

      I don’t find any reference to an Air Force career for Young and I certainly don’t recall him at Blue Book; we have a full staffing list so I can check. And of course Blue Book fell under different commands and commanders over its lifetime, Cabell being the one I discuss most extensively in Unidentified.

      I’m glad to see you rejected being an Irish alien from the Pleiades though, avoiding the tempting blondes. You never know when one of those will take off their mask and just have you for lunch.
