ANDY COLVIN - The Mothman Speaks: Candid Conversations Concerning Cosmic Conundrums
- Cryptic Creatures, Chimeras, Contactees, and the Cleverly Coded Coincidences of the Collective Unconscious - In the 1960s, on a West Virginia backroad, Andy Colvin and his family and friends had encounters with the entity popularly known as "Mothman." Following those encounters, Colvin found that he could draw, sing, and take photographs, and that he had a photographic memory. Colvin was recognized as a prodigy, and was eventually offered a National Merit scholarship to Harvard University. While attending graduate school at the Univ. of Texas at Austin, Colvin helped found U.T.'s celebrated Transmedia Dept. as well as the Austin Film Society, an organization now credited with bringing commercial filmmaking to Texas. In 1985, Colvin used his tuition grant money to purchase the only 8mm camcorder then available, becoming the first filmmaker in Austin to shoot in the new format. His ensuing documentation of the lives of Austin "slackers" influenced the seminal cult hit that defined Generation X, "Slacker" - a project for which Colvin helped raise funds and equipment. Colvin's band, Ed Hall, appeared in the film and on the soundtrack. Following graduate school, Colvin worked on Hollywood films, toured with his experimental band, The Interdimensional Vortex League (once named America's "most underground band" by Europe's hip arts magazine, "Blitz"), and began making small, ethnographic documentaries about unusual tribes, subcultures, and personalities. His 25-year study of modern Texans, "Multislack," is due out in 2012. Colvin's work has been seen or heard in all 50 states, and in several foreign countries. His writing has been featured in various magazines, including Paranoia, The Stranger, and "D'Art," the arts journal for the Church of the Subgenius. Colvin's unique career has been studded with various mind-blowing, synchronistic events, some of which allowed him to study with, or work with, some of the greatest creative minds of the 20th Century, including Nam June Paik, Lee Friedlander, Keith Haring, Dennis Hopper, David Lynch, Robert Anton Wilson, Laurie Anderson, Daniel Johnston, Vito Acconci, Bruce Bickford, and the Butthole Surfers. -

RICHARD P JACKSON - From Exorcist to Paranormal Researcher
- To understand what Richard is about is to experience a cross section of gift, knowledge, experience and success that sets him apart from the overwhelming number of psychics, paranormal investigators, spiritual experts, healers and the like. The evolution of his special and unique gifts is the story of doors opening through dynamic spiritual interplay and opportunities that occurred in tandem bringing the true nature of spirituality and its many roles in our lives. Honouring all that is "good" and to change that which could be better in all endeavours of the human experience is at the heart of his work. Richard is considered among the most multi-gifted, multi-experienced psychics and problem solvers in all phases of the human experience. Who else may assist to improve one's corporate environment, bring blessings, provide messages from spirit, assist victims of spiritual oppression, de-haunt people and places, provide spiritual healing, and help others embrace their own gifts? We know of no others. Rarely is an individual empowered to clarify and teach the interconnection between our thoughts, activities, creation, and ultimately our success. It has been said that Richard helps bring forth the supernatural in each of us. We all respond to spiritual and physical laws whether or not we are aware of or believe in them. Great thinkers and leaders throughout time have worked with these threads of truth to bring about advances in individual and group consciousness. Through his gifts, guidance, faith, and humour, Richard possesses the unique ability to integrate these threads, creating ideas and solutions that transcend ordinary boundaries. We are in a tug of war between divine light and ignorance in our ever-expanding consciousness, and Richard is working to make that evolution happen more quickly and emphasizing this through light over ignorance; however challenging this may be. Richard's work include facilitating this process in gifted and caring people to advance the condition of all fellow beings, our planet, our faith, and our footprints in time - this is neither an easy or trivial task, but can be an experience wonderful beyond imagination. -

D C AGAR - The Nonevent Principle -
An eclectic science-fiction romp through pop culture and fringe theory. Tiffy and Cheryl Bandera, twin sisters, begin their career advertising buy-one-get-one cheeseburgers. Their magnetic appeal is palpable, but before making their recording debut, they decide to go solo-in a manner of speaking. The sisters split time as Tiffy, one of the most famous entertainers in the history of pop-culture. In response to the Milli Vanilli scandal, and lest they be discovered, a clever recasting decision is made-Cheryl becomes a martial artist and appears with Tiffy under the pretense of being her security double. This new relationship between the sisters begins to affect their PR, and fans grow to see Tiffy as an aloof, ungrateful megastar. Thus, the novel picks up the action with the sisters' creation of a win-a-date contest. They gently rig it to weed out the sociopaths, and the unassuming Brian Gullen wins the contest. Cheryl manages the vetting process and, incredibly, Brian's abductee experiences, psychic abilities and split-personality don't sound any serious warning bells. Cheryl is more than receptive, even intrigued. He's a nice guy, and it's telegraphed early that he will probably wind up with at least one of the sisters. Brian's tales of the planet Quartzon and the adventure they have on its forest moon make for some authentically cool science-fiction, but the early narrative too easily shifts from the story proper to Brian's correspondences, to a character's dreams, to a slew of confusing conversations. The prose is clear and the tone witty, but the organization and particulars are often muddied by stock lamentations about scientists and skeptics' dismissal of UFOs. However, Agar has an uncanny ability to create eccentric characters whose concerns are nonetheless down-to-earth. Even the Mongeese, a once proud warrior race from another galaxy, are sympathetic in human terms. There are more than a few howlers, blessedly intentional, like when Cheryl makes a less than romantic bargain with Brian (eventually known as Bryan) for DNA exchange. This genuine wit keeps the reader engaged throughout the novel's complex intergalactic machinations. -
