Those of you unread in the literature of Alex Heard should know
that Heard's oeuvre reflects his fascination with the extremes
of human behavior and belief, on which he has written eloquently
and often hilariously. Unless the subject is entirely spurious,
he typically takes care to note somewhere that a serious
question (such as still-unexplained UFO sightings) may well
exist apart from the silliness generated by a particular
unorthodox notion.

Personally, in my experience nobody today is writing better about
fringe movements than Heard.  I've been a fan for years and
am looking forward to reading his book.
