We are not looking for politics, most personal accounts of abductions or sightings, poetry, fictio, or articles debunking various phenomena. We are looking for pieces that are well written, tight, entertaining and in the case of more technical articles, easy to read. Subject matter must be treated with respect, yet a sense of humor is very much encouraged. Interviews with experts or authors are encouraged, especially if the subject matter is appropriately strange, alarming “out there,” magical, wondrous or fascinating.
