High Strangeness: Tired of UFOs!

Tired of UFOs!

I never would have thought it possible, but I have finally reached a point where I am tired of reading my biography of Dr. J. Allen Hynek. I have had to read and re-read and re-re-read the manuscript of The Close Encounters Man so many times in the past few weeks, going through the final copy edit and then meeting all the standards of my publisher's legal counsel, that I can barely look at it now.

But I still think it's pretty good! And, in a weird twist that sounds made-up but isn't, last night as I put the final touches on the book I revised the closing pages and wrote what I now think may be the best line in the book. Then I sent the MS off to my editor and put the book and myself to bed...

I can't share that line or much of anything else at this point, but I can give you a tantalizing peek at a few of the chapter titles:

Chapter 1: Under the Dome . . .

Chapter 2: Unusual Stars . . .

Chapter 3: The Crowded Sky . . .

Chapter 6: Project Henry . . .

Chapter 7: Hynek in Wonderland . . .

Chapter 14: Mr. UFO . . .

Chapter 15: Signal in the Noise . . .

Chapter 16: Invisible at Last . . .

Chapter 18: The Spur . . .

Chapter 19: Purple Peach Trees . . .

Chapter 21: Close Encounters . . .

Chapter 22: Arizona . . .
