Hi, Gildas,

I don't think it's a question of minds changing so much as the
solicitation of new voices at Fortean Times. I have been
encouraged to write more frequently for the magazine. Its
editors are well aware of my perspective on UFOs and anomalies.

The same issue with the Keel reassessment features my
(favorable) review of a book by Prof. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke
based on her interviews with American Indians about their UFO
experiences.

Cordially,

Jerry Clark
