I reached out to Bill recently and asked him to share a bit about the Ozzie and his work. Here’s a smattering of his reply, chalking it up to electronic communication and the copy/paste feature. Oh, I love that one.
Speaking of electronic communication, you should check out the new – UFO Truth Magazine. Bill has an article in the first issue, along with many other well-known Ufologists. I’ve had a chance to peruse it and I’d highly recommend getting a copy for your reading pleasure. It’s well written and full of current information.
Now on to the Ozzie himself… The OZ Files gives a unique focus on UFO experiences in the Australian region, as well as commentary and informed analysis of UFO events and research both in Australia and around the world.
I became interested in the mystery of UFOs during the mid to late 1960s during my teenage years. The UFO phenomenon, with its extraordinary worldwide manifestations, was coming under the politicized and militarized myopic lens of science, most notoriously with the so-called Condon Report. This flawed scientific study, published in 1969, unsuccess-fully tried to bury the UFO enigma, but successfully helped marginalize it as a “taboo” subject for mainstream science.
1969 was a turning point for me as I was confronted with the reality of UFOs right on my own doorstep, on the north coast of the Australian east coast state of New South Wales. There was a rash of unusual ground effects in the region, the most prominent being a large flattened saccaline crop site near Bungawalban found on April 17th.
The talk was of flying saucers and that this was a “saucer nest.” The fact that the property involved was owned by the local member of parliament ensured the affair leapt into national prominence. I joined the curious throng. The 15 foot crop had been flattened in four distinct patches, the largest being about 60 feet by 15 feet. Lodging – a phenomenon that can affect crops in a similar manner – was ruled out by locals familiar with it.
Bill is the coordinator of the Sydney based UFO Investigation Centre (UFOIC) & the Anomaly Physical Evidence Group (APEG). Information about sightings and research are most welcome. Author of “The OZ Files – the Australian UFO Story” (1996), “Hair of the Alien – DNA and other forensic evidence of alien abduction” (2005), and “UFO History Keys – Examining the UFO controversy from a historical perspective” (2011).
Inquiries via firstname.lastname@example.org or P.O. Box 42, West Pennant Hills, NSW, 2125, AUSTRALIA. In “HAIR of the ALIEN” (order via amazon.com) my primary focus is promoting a forensic scientific approach to examining the alien abduction controversy, concentrating on the DNA approach where compelling biological evidence is available.
