There are a bunch of great news links in our headlines section below.

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.
