My favorite thing about this book is the afterword, where Gray Barker shares a poem in which he calls Ufology, ufos, and assorted people involved in the field "buckets of shit."

Other than that, I also love this style of book. Great reporting on the

“Seated on one side of the room, in a quite expensive looking leather chair, was a short, stout figure with skin of dull green, and huge, black eyes. A Grey alien, I knew, although he was actually green. I’m betting his race takes issue with their given title. But then again, white people and black people aren’t actually white or black, so maybe I just think too much.”
Jeff O'Brien, Journey to the Edge of the Flat Earth

“Smoking was still allowed indoors back in ‘98, but smoking outside after a band finished their set was just something everyone did anyways. I know that sharing this tidbit serves no purpose to the story whatsoever, but I’m including it because I know some jerkoff is gonna read this and say that smoking was allowed inside public places back then, and try to discredit this magnificent story based on what they will deem as a historical inconsistency. I simply just do not have time for that shit.”
Jeff O'Brien, Journey to the Edge of the Flat Earth

“I know that I’ve seen and experienced enough in this life to think that, just maybe, some of the mundane or flat out shitty stuff we experience in this strange and seemingly meaningless act called life is predetermined by a mysterious, but maybe not higher, power.”
Jeff O'Brien, Journey to the Edge of the Flat Earth
