Subject: Alien Worlds Magazine


The Internet based magazine UFO Review, which has been in hiatus
for the last few months, has metamorphosised into a glossy
newsstand print magazine called "Alien Worlds".

The first issue will appear on UK retail sale on February 8th
2008 and will be available via a wide array of outlets. Among a
number of other European countries  also taking the magazine are
Ireland, Greece, Poland, Sweden, Israel, Norway and Austria. The
selling-in process is ongoing at this moment and it is probable
that others will be added to the roster before publication.

Negotiations are also underway for North American distribution
but no details are on hand as yet. As the picture becomes
clearer, further information will be posted on our web site.

Initially, the magazine will be published bimonthly. It will
also be available worldwide via subscription.

Alien Worlds will take a much broader approach to the subject
of extraterrestrial life and will encompass astrobiology and
SETI as well as the phenomenon of UFOs/UAPs and the origins and
development of life here on planet Earth.

In preparation for the launch, a new web site has been created
to support the magazine which is located at:

http://alienworldsmag.com

It is still being developed but there you will find the
identical news service that was previously located at UFO Review
as well as a blog, a forum, background information on the
magazine, and general articles of interest.

Starting us off, we have a guest article kindly written
especially for us by Stan Friedman entitled Flying Saucers And
Science - An Overview. In it, Stan explains and describes the
background and circumstances that has led to him writing his new
book, "my magnum opus", which will be published in June of 2008.
The article can be found on the front page of the web site at:

Barring unforeseen events, it is evident that any imminent
progress in the search for extraterrestrial life is going to
come first from space flight and astronomy. Alien Worlds will be
taking a keen interest in those areas.

But Ufology cannot be ignored. Unlike the other specialities, it is
much more people orientated and while there is a diversity of ideas
and opinions in the other disciplines, they generally converge towards
a central point. Not so with UFOlogy which is rich in disparity and
utterly lacking in convergence. This provides an array of fascinating
avenues to explore.

My goal has been to get the level and feel of the magazine to a
point where I would buy it if I saw it sitting on a rack, and I
don't buy magazines. I am very proud of the result. It
represents a more progressive and current approach to the
question of extraterrestrial life and brings together under one
title a combination of subjects with, broadly speaking, a common
goal. There is nothing else like it out there

For those who share this wider perspective, you will find those
principles reflected in Alien Worlds.

You are very welcome to join us.
