That was a good one, thanks
I like his exit when he slides off the nose of the plane


It raises a smile doesn't it? I've had the book for years and marked the page with half an idea for making a thread about it. Ghosts have stayed the distance and been written about for millennia whilst most other extraordinary creatures/entities/imaginings have fallen from favour. The 'fey folk' were close rivals and seem to have faded from view since the early decades of the 20th Century.

He's got stories galore. I first heard him speaking on Kate Valentine's podcast and enjoyed the interview a lot. He talks first hand of the 'mince pie Martians' and is very entertaining.

I haven't heard the Rich Planet interview and will listen to it over the weekend.


You're right, they do seem to have 'fallen from favour' and there just seems no logic to that. In fact, I can't help but wonder if some ghost/UFO/alien sightings are actually sightings of nature beings/faeries.

Although I do wonder if us humans can confuse ourselves (setting limits that can confine potential understanding) with our own labelling systems! I quite like don Juan's term (from Castaneda books) 'inorganic beings' (see my above reply) - it avoids pinning paranormal encounters down too much with humanities current assumptions, and simply refers to beings that exist who have awareness but no physical organism (well, not the way humanity in general understands the physical)

Thanjs mate, will be listening to that podcast!

Aelfrede great thread -in case anyone wants to read it, Jacques Vallee's book about folklore and unexplained phenomena is available (free) at the link below.



Passport to Magonia - On UFOs, Folklore, and Parallel Worlds (pdf)





Over two decades ago, eminent scientist Vallee wrote a provocative book about alleged UFO landings, folklore, and certain unexplained phenomena. That long-out-of-print book which discussed the most interesting reports of more than 1,000 apparently reliable witnesses has become an underground classic.

I like to use the phrase, 'folk from Elsewhere' as a neutral place holder term. It encompasses ETI, faery, sentient entities in some consciousness eco-system and anything else that doesn't lend itself to prosaic, cultural or psychological explanations. It's also non-committal which is always a good stance to take.

Nice phrase
I like the word elsewhere - gives that extra feel of mystery

No worries Aelfrede - Albert Rosales has collected quite a number of (very) freaky non-human reports over the years and mentions in this interview that small fairy/goblin like folk are actually still being reported.
