The UFO Bestiary
Seth Shostak

You may not see massive UFO exhibits at your local science
museum, but there's no dearth of saucer stories infesting my
email. Every day I receive several reports of alien sightings,
extraterrestrial plans for Earth, and agitated screeds about the
reluctance of scientists to take the whole subject seriously.
Plenty of people think they have convincing evidence for other-
worldly visitors, and they want me to know.

Allow me to first note that this is a phenomenon worthy of
attention. If aliens are really hanging out in our 'hood, it's
hard to imagine any other fact more worthy of study. If not,
then why does such a large fraction of the populace insist on
believing they're here?

Note that few, if any, of these emails are penned by hoaxers.
The correspondents are sincere, and many simply wish to help us
in our search for evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence.
Others are ticked off, usually at me.

It's a fire hose of correspondence, but stepping back a bit from
the massive electronic corpus, it strikes me that virtually all
of it falls into one of four categories. For the curious and
interested, I list these subject areas below, together with a
modestly elaborated description of each.
