Today is John Keel’s birthday.  He was five years old when this photo was taken; if he were alive today, he’d be 81.  We miss him.

To mark the occasion, Anthony Matt and I (Doug Skinner) will chat about his life and work on “In Other News,” hosted by Geoff Brady on WBAI, on Monday, March 28, at 10 pm.  WBAI is at 99.5 FM in NYC, or at wbai.org.

My last birthday present to John was a deck of World War 2 airplane spotter cards.  “I can still identify all these planes,” he said.

ADDENDUM:  Our appearance on “In Other News” is archived here.

John was surprised that I’d found a copy of his “Harry Gibbs” novel, Three Women. Here’s what he wrote in it.

“Magonia” on John Keel

The blog of the British journal Magonia has posted an interesting article it first ran in 2002, on Keel’s reception from the various factions of ufology.  It can be found here.  And thanks to Greg Sullivan for pointing it out.

John Keel’s book inscriptions were prized by his fans.  I’ll scan some for your enjoyment; here’s how he signed my copy of Jadoo.

John Keel at the World’s Fair

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 12:10 pm

I’ve posted Ed Lord and John Keel’s home movie, “A Day at the Fair,” on YouTube.  John plays a loutish tourist who waits in line all day at the 1964 World’s Fair.  For more on his films with Ed Lord, see this earlier post.  And for the movie, click here.  Thanks again to Anthony Matt and Angela Alverson for technical help.
