New Dawn Q&A

A couple of months ago, the Australian magazine New Dawn did an interview with me for the print-edition of their magazine on my The Real Men in Black.

But, the interview has now been posted online at their website, and you can find it right here.

As I note in the interview: "My personal conclusion is that there are at least two things going on. There are the government-originated MIB, and there are the weirder MIB. As for the former, I prove in the book that some can be traced back to official agencies of at least several governments. As for those stranger MIB, my personal view is that they are paranormal. Of course, much of this depends on how we define the paranormal! My personal view is that the MIB may be the inhabitants of multi-dimensions or extra-dimensions that co-exist with ours, and whose role it is to keep us away from the truth about not just UFOs, but a whole range of strange phenomena too. But as for why, that is the big question still eluding us!"

The Real Men in Black in Fate

The new issue of Fate magazine includes an excellent, 4-page review of The Real Men in Black from Jerome Clark.

Jerry describes the book as being "breezily written" and spends a great deal of time discussing Joshua P. Warren's theories in its pages concerning the theory that the MIB may be time travelers.

You can find out more about Fate magazine right here.

Info Ovni & The MIB

Over at Info Ovni, you can find a new Q&A with me about my thoughts on the Men in Black. Here's the link...

Poll Results on MIB Origins

Well, the poll results relative to my question posed here - namely, who or what are the Men in Black? - are in. And those same results make for interesting reading.

They are as follows:

Government agents: 26 percent.
Aliens: 19 percent.
Paranormal Creatures: 38 percent.
Hoaxing and Misidentification: 15 per cent.

As for the remaining 2 percent? Well, I have no idea where they went to at all! Confiscated by the MIB, maybe?

But, that most people view the MIB phenomenon as being real, albeit of an other-world nature (whether alien or paranormal) is intriguing, and a conclusion with which I agree.

Of course, that more than a quarter of all those who voted concluded that the phenomenon has its origins in the world of government is notable too, given the fact that - as I note in my The Real Men in Black book - there are clearly two sides to the MIB. There are ours and then there is..."something else."

But, precisely what that "something else" may be is a matter of ongoing debate.

Many thanks to all those who voted!
