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. Jerry Clark Listen to 'Strange Days...
