Meet the New UFO Author on the Block

Yesterday afternoon I drove down to beautiful Williams Bay, Wisconsin, on the shores of beautiful Lake Geneva, to the site of the beautiful Yerkes Observatory, to have some "author's head shots" taken for my book. Along for the ride was my friend Lxxx, who is a very talented photographer, and my one and only choice for this photo shoot.

I chose the site because this is where Dr. Hynek did his graduate work on the spectra of F-type stars in the early 1930's, and so the place is of immense significance to the Hynek story. Yerkes has been owned and operated by the University of Chicago for well over a hundred years, and it's an impressive place. Lxxx just kept gasping in awe as we walked around the building, looking for places to set up, and I have to admit that I felt a little bit of pride showing the place off...

We ended up with a whole slew of pictures, and here are a few of my faves. I think Lxxx has captured a mysterious something in me...

Will my editor Mxxxxxx agree with my top picks? I'll let you know...

BadAss
The Truth is Out There
I Want to Believe
My natural state

While I think that people's natural state should be encouraged, there are not enough bad asses in the field. WWHD? What would Hynek do? I suppose I'll find out when your book is published.
