That's "phenomenon" (singular), not "phenomena" (plural), Kathy.
In any event, the Trickster figure is hardly confined to the
American Southwest. It's ubiquitous in the world's mythology and
folklore, an object of fascination, too, to students of culture
and psychology.

Having been intimately involved with Eddie Bullard's book (I
also have a quote on the back cover), I consider it a thrill to
see it reviewed sympathetically -- albeit missing some of
Bullard's nuances and his actual argument about what constitutes
the evidence for a real UFO phenomenon -- in so august a journal
as the London Review of Books. Myth and Mystery should be in the
library of every intelligent ufologist.
