Dear Alex Heard:

Any treatment of the UFO topic which touches upon Dr. Steven
Greer and/or the Unarius Society would require a great sense of
humor indeed.

I would have titled the book " Apocalypse any time now, maybe in
two or three weeks but definitely before the second coming of
Christ .."  but that's a publishing issue.

I am addicted to long book titles.

There may be some people who take Unarius or Greer seriously,
but what is to be gained from that?

The Art Bell forum, quite literally many millions in many
countries, is more than an adequate forum for your book.

This "forum" doesn't even accept Mastercard or Visa.

If you want to study millenium nut cases, there are literally
hundreds of other places to go.

Perhaps you got here by accident.
