Charles Fort


Charles Hoy Fort (August 6th 1874 – May 3rd 1932 / Age 58) was an American writer and researcher into anomalous phenomena. Today, the terms Fortean and Forteana are used to characterize various such phenomena. His work continues to inspire people, who call themselves Forteans, and has influenced some aspects of science fiction.

"One measures a circle, beginning anywhere." - Charles Fort

Ray Palmer

Raymond A. Palmer circa 1930

Raymond Arthur Palmer (August 1st 1910 – August 15th 1977 / Age 67) was an American author and editor of Sci-fi and anomalous phenomena. Palmer is best known as editor of Amazing Stories (1938-49) and publisher/editor of FATE Magazine (1948-1955). In addition he released magazines such as Fantastic Adventures (1939-53), Mystic, Search, Imagination, Other Worlds, Space World, Flying Saucers, Ray Palmer's News Letter and Forum. He published or republished numerous spiritualist books, including Oahspe: A New Bible, and many books related to flying saucers, including The Coming of the Saucers, co-written by Kenneth Arnold.

His publishing houses including Clark Publishing Company, Amherst Press and Palmer Publications. Palmer was also a prolific author of science fiction and fantasy stories, many of which were published under pseudonyms. The magazine he co-founded with Curtis Fuller, FATE Magazine, continued to foster interest in anomalous phenomenon for generations onward. Curtis Fuller and his wife Mary took full control of FATE in 1955, when Palmer sold his interest in the venture. The magazine has continued in publication under a series of editors and publishers to the present day and is considered the longest-running magazine of it's kind.


According to Bruce Lanier Wright, "Palmer was hit by a truck at age seven and suffered a broken back." An unsuccessful operation on Palmer's spine stunted his growth (he stood about four feet tall), and left him with a hunchback. Palmer found refuge in science fiction, which he read voraciously. He rose through the ranks of science fiction fandom and is credited, along with Walter Dennis, with editing the first fanzine The Comet in May 1930.

The First Issue of FATE, March 1948

As an editor, Palmer tended to favor adventurous, fast-moving space opera-type stories. His tenure at Amazing Stories was notable for his purchase of Isaac Asimov's first professional story, "Marooned Off Vesta". Palmer was also known for his controversial support of the long-running Shaver Mystery stories, a series of stories by Richard Sharpe Shaver (which maintained that the world is dominated by insane inhabitants of the hollow earth). It is unclear whether Palmer believed the Shaver stories to be true, or if he was just using the stories to sell magazines. Palmer asked other writers to do stories in the Shaver genre, the most notable being Rog Phillips.

In the first 1948 issue of FATE, Palmer published Kenneth Arnold's report of "flying discs." Arnold's sighting marked the beginning of the modern UFO era, and his story propelled the fledgling FATE to national recognition. Through FATE, Palmer was instrumental in popularizing belief in flying saucers and popularizing the genre of the paranormal. It also occasionally debunked dubious claims such as Atlantis, the Philadelphia Experiment, the Bermuda Triangle, and the Amityville Horror.

In 1988, FATE was sold to Llewellyn Publications (now Llewellyn Worldwide). In 1994, when Llewellyn changed the format from digest size to a full-size, full-color magazine. In September 2001, Galde Press Inc., owned by editor-in-chief Phyllis Galde, purchased FATE. In May 2003, FATE returned to its pre-1994 digest size and in 2008 moved to a bi-monthly format. (The secret identity of DC Comics superhero the Atom – introduced by sci-fi writer Gardner Fox in 1961 – is named after Palmer.)

Ivan Sanderson

Ivan Terence Sanderson (January 30th 1911 – February 19th 1973 / Aged 62) was a naturalist, biologist and writer born in Edinburgh, Scotland, who became a naturalized citizen of the United States. Sanderson was an early proponent of the work of Charles Fort and a member of the Fortean Society. His interest in anomalous phenomena and mysterious or unknown animals, such as lake monsters and living dinosaurs, led him to coin the term "cryptozoology."

Sanderson appeared on TV talks as a biologist along with zoo animals. His articles and books were very influential especially his work related to the yeti such as Abominable Snowman: A Legend Come To Life (1961). His work inspired many to become researchers. Sanderson also took an interest in UFOs and wrote two books of the subject.

In the 1930s, he claimed to have seen a "Kongamato" (or breaker of boats) after being attacked by a creature he described as "the Granddaddy of all bats". In 1952, Ivan Sanderson was one of the first investigators (alongside Gray Barker) on the scene in WV to report on the Flatwoods Monster. Throughout 1950s, Sanderson was a frequent guest on John Nebel's paranormal-themed NY radio program. In his book Mysterious America, author Loren Coleman writes that Ivan Sanderson discovered the 1909 "Jersey Devil" incident to be an elaborate real estate hoax.

Sanderson officially met researcher John Keel in 1962, they respected each others work and corresponded frequently through the mail. Sanderson founded the Ivan T. Sanderson Foundation in August 1965 on his New Jersey property, which became the Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained (SITU) in 1967. SITU was a non-profit organization that investigated strange phenomena ignored by mainstream science.

During John Keel's investigation in Point Pleasant in 1967, Ivan Sanderson served as Keel's consultant on the naturalist and biological component of such reports through phone calls and correspondence. In 1968, Sanderson and Bernard Heuvelman were both involved in the controversial Minnesota iceman saga as well. Sanderson died of brain cancer in New Jersey in 1973.


During the 1950s-60s, Sanderson was widely published in True, Sports Afield, and Argosy, Saturday Evening Post.

  • Invisible Residents: The Reality of Underwater UFOs (1970)
  • Investigating the Unexplained (essays) (1972)

Gray Barker

Gray Barker (May 2nd 1925 - December 6th 1984 / Aged 59) was an American writer best known for his books about UFOs and other paranormal phenomena. His 1956 book They Knew Too Much About Flying Saucers introduced Albert Bender's story of the Men In Black to UFO lore. The term was later popularized by John Keel along with the shorthand "MIB". 

Recent evidence indicates that Gray Barker was skeptical of UFO claims. He launched and participated in hoaxes to deceive the more serious UFO investigators. Controversial as he may be, he is an undeniable part of UFO history and lore.

Loren Coleman

Loren Coleman (born July 12th 1947) is an American author, Fortean researcher and cryptozoologist.

Coleman was born in Norfolk, Virginia and grew up in Decatur, Illinois. In March of 1960 he watched a film about Yeti entitled "Half Human" which appeared on television. The film, as well as the work of Zoologists Ivan T. Sanderson and Bernard Heuvelmans, inspired him to investigate mysterious creatures. He graduated in 1965 from MacArthur High School and went on to study psychiatric social work, sociology, anthropology and zoology.

In the 1970's, Loren met investigator John Keel as a mutual friend of researchers Ivan T. Sanderson and Brad Steiger. Through letter correspondence, John Keel introduced Coleman to UFO investigator Jerome Clark who became Coleman's writing partner. Coleman and Clark released a book together titled The Unidentified in 1975 which they followed up with Creatures From The Outer Edge in 1978 (which featured the famous Dover Demon case).

In 1999, Coleman wrote The Field Guide to Bigfoot with Patrick Huyghe and Cryptozoology A To Z with Jerome Clark. His revised version of Mysterious America in 2001 became very popular as interest in these subjects grew.

In 2002, he released Mothman and other curious encounters and was featured in the "Search For The Mothman" documentary and worked as a publicity consultant for The Mothman Prophecies Movie. He suggested to Jeff Wamsley that the town should have a Mothman Museum and Mothman Festival and has done other work involving the creature over the years.

Coleman established The International Cryptozoology Museum in 2003 in Portland, Maine. In 2017, he released a companion piece to John Keel's Mothman Prophecies, entitled "Mothman: Evil Incarnate" and in 2019 he was featured in the Small Town Monsters documentary Terror In The Skies.
