    By far the very best UFO/UFO related magazine that I have ever read was Graham Birdsall's UFO Magazine which sadly ceased shortly after Graham's death. This was such a great loss to British Ufology, not only did we lose one of our great Ufologist but we also lost the most detailed, non biased magazine in the country dedicated to the UFO phenomenon. There has been a void in this field since then which has not really been filled.


    Not to long ago there was hope that this void would finally be filled by the UFO Matrix magazine, which was originally edited by renowned Ufologist Philip Mantle. Sadly this magazine also died a death, whether this was because of internal politics or was it because the days of printed magazines are no longer viable.


    Sadly I personally think that the day of printed UFO magazines are over, which is a real shame. Waiting for the latest magazine to show up in your email inbox is not the same as one falling through the letter box in the morning, with the fresh printed smell and the texture you cannot beat it. But sadly I think emagazines are the future.


    However there is a upside to this. The advantage of the emagazine is that you cut down the costs of producing a magazine substantially as there are no printing, postage or material cost which makes magazines dedicated to subject like UFO's viable again.


    Two new emagazines have now surfaced ,UFO Truth magazine run and edited by former police officer Gary Heseltine and UFO Today magazine which is edited by former UFO Matrix editor Philip Mantle.


    UFO Truth magazines first issue was May/June 2013 and is now on its 5th Issue and priced at 3.99 or you can have a yearly subscription currently on offer at 17.99. Gary states that unlike other magazines this magazine is aimed at people who believe that some UFO are ET in origin.


    UFO Today magazines first issue was the end of 2013 and issue 2 is out now. Price wise, issue 1 was priced at 3.99 and issue 2 is priced at 2.99 or you can buy both issues for 5.00 there dont appear to be a yearly subscription on offer at the time of writing. Philip states that the magazine is open to every one to contribute whether a believer of sceptic and is not biased to any particular aspect of Ufology.


    So which one to buy? Now that is the question. At the moment we have 2 magazines by 2 leading and respected Ufologists, I have just download both magazines and will be writing my review once I have read both. I just hope that there is room for both magazines and that they continue to grow from strength to strength and maybe that one or both of these magazines can be compared to the great UFO Magazine that we all sadly miss.

  2. Well what can I say, it certainly was an eye opener. On October 1st I attended a talk by Richard D Hall at the Ebbw Vale Institute, Ebbw Vale, South Wales. Firstly I must say that the venue itself was great, a very nice building and very friendly staff, a credit to Ebbw Vale.

    The talk itself started at 7.30 and continued until 10.15 with a question and answer session at the end. I must admit that I was unable to stay for the question and answer section as I had a prior engagement. The cost of the talk was only £ 5 and that must be the best value evening event of its kind.

    The talk was made up of 2 sections, section 1 was about various conspiracy theories and section 2 was a brief talk about UFOs, abductions, animal mutilations and crop circles. I will admit that I am not one for conspiracy theories and that my main interest is obviously section 2 with regards to UFOs, which to my disappointment was the shorter of the two sections.

    Section 1 talked about how the world media is controlled. Everyone knows that the media is controlled by its own government, each countries media will report the news in different ways .i.e. take Libya for instance. Our news reports on the struggle of the “freedom fighters” while Libya’s state news reports on the savagery of the terrorists and atrocities carried out by NATO.

    But according to Richard that is only one part of the story. The one piece of evidence that had me shocked “I think more than anything else in the talk, and I must say I am not a supporter of the theory that the US Government carried out the September 11th attacked but this clip along with other evidence presented has made me question it more” was a clip of the BBC news reporting the collapse of Tower 7, 20 something minutes before tower 7 actually collapsed, the clip even cuts live to the reporter at the scene who states that tower 7 has collapsed while tower 7 is actually in view behind the reporter still standing! Then 20 something minutes later tower 7 collapses live on the news? The BBC has not given an explanation to this.

    A lot of the talk was regarding September 11th with various evidence regarding the conspiracy. Richard also talked about how the world banks are corrupt, how we can never get out of debt because when our money is printed it already has debt on it from the Bank of England etc. Plus an awful lot more. One thing you cannot say about Richard is that he does not know what he talks about, everything he brings up is backed up by a lot of evidence, there was a lot to digest and to get you head around. It makes you ask the question is everything you believe is wrong!

    The 2nd part of the show talked about the UFO subject. He told of a claim by an American named Dan Sherman who worked for the US military from 1982 – 1995. Dan claims is that he was trained to use a machine that enabled him to receive telepathic messages from Aliens which he has to relay to the NSA. The messages he relayed was from the Aliens regarding information on Abductees. There is a lot to this story, to much to write here so if you want more information on this case follow link below to Richards website: -

    The talk also covered how the US government has anti-gravity technology and crafts powered by this technology. He also briefly covered animal mutilations and crop circles. But this was just really a quick overview of the subject, personally I would have like more of the talk to have been on the UFO subject and less on the conspiracy theories, but that's just my personal view and I am slightly biased.

    Overall it was a very interesting talk, well worth the money. Richard came across as very professional, and had a passion for his beliefs and I really look forward to attending one of his events in the future.

    You can watch Richards TV show called richplanet on sky channel 200/201 and freesat channel 403.

    He also has his own produced DVD for sale covering a number of subjects, follow the link below for more information: -

    Once again I would like to thank Richard for a very well presented, informative talk.
