Quick Book Review: Roswell Alien Autopsy by Philip Mantle - published by Roswell Books. Recommended by the authors of Haunted Skies - it finally puts the record straight! Well done Phil.

Unfortunately, I will not be going to the conference at Woodbridge on the 17th June, as - first of all - it is Father’s Day and I have deprived my family on too many occasion by putting UFO related interests first. Secondly, the 200-mile round trip would cost over £150 and journeys this length are biting hard into our pockets!
Yesterday I went to see Bob Tibbitts at the Festival Pub in Coventry, and he gave me some early UFO magazines, which I will scan and upload for your attention in due course. Thanks go to Bob, who has always been a source of great advice and encouragement over the years.
Kevin Goodman emailed me with the following information:
Due to work commitments, the annual "Look to the skies and run away if you see something weird" skywatch at Cradle Hill in Warminster is planned for Saturday, 1st September. Sadly a major work commitment for the normal date stops me from being there! So, let's have a good 'un on the 1st! Be there folks or be square! Please message me if you wish to attend, as the Army can get a bit …. errrr…. "nervous" of a group of civvies on the hill... LOL.
Also spoke to Phil Hoyle from the Shropshire area today, who is an authority on animal mutilations and is the man to contact with regard to this subject. Well done Phil carry on the great work mate, I am sending you Volume 4 soon so you can review it on your website.
We are going down to Avebury on the Wednesday for Solstice and will be handing out some of our business cards in the hope that people will buy the books, which will be available for sale at the Henge Book shop. Hopefully John and Esther will put the kettle on!
Completely off the subject, we thought we would add a photo of Dawn’s garden. The work she has put in is reaping rewards and we reckon she is deserved of a photo.
And in closing, we would like to remind folks that we still are looking for any one that might want to assist us with illustrations. Please contact us if you are interested.
