Linda Powell Interview The Paracast
The life and controversies of perhaps the most influential figure in ufological history form the subject of this highly-informative and thought-producing interview. Anomalist News Editor Linda Powell's Against the Odds: Major Donald E. Keyhoe and His Battle to End UFO Secrecy (Anomalist Books) contends that this " is largely responsible for the twin pillars of current UFO belief: that UFOs represent extraterrestrial technology and that the government is hiding this truth from us." And Linda's meticulous research into the man's life and career strongly supports Donald Keyhoe's seminal importance. The Paracast conversation immediately produces fascinating new information and insights about Keyhoe and his interrelationships with other "lions" of early ufology. Most focus in this conversation: the stormy time from Keyhoe's first burst upon the popular UFO scene through his "falling from grace" with the organization he directed through turbulent relationships with the U.S. Air Force. The numerous topics include Keyhoe's antagonism towards Contacteeism; proof former Project Blue Book head Captain Edward Ruppelt was compelled to write a second edition to his The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects; and how Keyhoe's sometimes "high and mighty" style in correspondence worked against him. Gene Steinberg tells how Keyhoe's second UFO book, less-famous than the blockbuster The Flying Saucers Are Real, fired the young Steinberg's interest in UFOs. We get both a more-rounded sense of the driven and sometimes quirky human being Donald Keyhoe—and a desire to learn more. There's 485 pages of that available in Linda's Against the Odds! (WM)
