After several days of contemplation, I have decided to address
the following statement made by Tim Matthews:

>As far as I and many colleagues are concerned Stephens is
>another Ed Fouche - big on talk and totally lacking in remotely
>credible evidence.

I am in the unique position of knowing the character of Edgar
Fouche', author of Alien Rapture-The Chosen, better than Mr.
Matthews or anyone else, for that matter, as I am his wife.
While that position intrinsically generates a measure of
prejudice, it does not render me blind nor stupid--nor unable to
access character and motivation.

Ed publicly stated on many occasions that he chose to write
Alien Rapture as fiction because he would not produce the
sources which passed the information on to him.  Any
conscionable reporter would endorse that this stance is oftimes
a necessity.  Since the publication of the book, respected
members of the UFO community have verified the content of the
work--including the existence of the TR3B flying triangle--and
have called to confirm that it reflected information their own
research had uncovered.

That individuals who are interested in this kaleidoscopic field
will disagree is inevitable--that they seem compelled to slander
others in the process never ceases to amaze me.  Tim Matthews
has chosen to publicly malign Ed on more than one occasion,
which I find curious, as he has never met nor even spoken to
him.  Ed has found the situation mildly humorous, as he is
confident in his sources and of the accuracy of content of the
information he has released.

Ed does not purport to be an expert and is relatively new to the
field of UFOlogy.  He was simply the recipient of a body of
information which he felt to be an important piece of the ET
puzzle, and was entrusted by the providers of that information
with task of making the information public. As to his
credentials, they have withstood the examination of directors
and producers at the BBC, his illustrious co-author Brad
Steiger, Diana Botsford, Publisher of the MSN UFO Community/host
for an upcoming weekly talk show on Talkspot Network, and many
others in the field.

It not my style to retaliate; I rarely respond to the inevitable
small-minded denigrations inherent to public exposure.  However,
to equivocate Edgar Fouche' to a self-proclaimed hoaxer is
ludicrous.  He is a man of character and a seeker of truth.
Would that all soldiers of ufology would manifest those traits
as they wade into the fray.
