The Fortean Mysteries in LA

It is my great pleasure to announce my upcoming appearance at Los Angeles' Philosophical Research Society --yes, the same outfit founded by Manly P. Hall. And I've got the perfect subject for this engagement: the original Fortean Society

While often overlooked, the Forteans had a considerable presence in Los Angeles. They rubbed elbows with early Hollywood and surrealist circles, providing an intriguing lineage to later movements such as the Discordians. But more importantly, they laid the foundation for the most esoteric interpretation of the UFO phenomena. 

And they did it nearly a year before the famous Kenneth Arnold sighting. It took almost a quarter century before folks like Jacques Vallee and John Keel embraced the metaphysical implications of the phenomena as the Forteans had. 

If you're in the LA area, please consider dropping by. I've got a great presentation planned and the venue is first rate. PRS is worth the price of admission alone, but you also get all kinds of Fortean LA madness. I call that a bargain. 

I'll be making the scene on April 24, 2024 --which is a Wednesday. The presentation starts at 7 pm pst. Tickets are available here.
