In July of 2015, I will be traveling to Dulce, New Mexico to conduct research for a book of literary nonfiction about the "battle" between aliens and the U.S. military that allegedly happened near that town. Such a research trip carries considerable cost.

In July of 2015, I will be traveling to Dulce, New Mexico to conduct research for a book of literary nonfiction about the alleged "UFO base" in Mt. Archuleta where U.S. servicemen are said to have engaged in a firefight with aliens. I will be interviewing experts on the case local to Dulce as well as others in the state of New Mexico. Do I believe in the stories of an "alien base" and a firefight that cost the lives of U.S. special ops servicemen? I don't know, but I'm skeptical. At any rate it's a good story. But why do people grow such narratives when the evidence is scanty? Heck, why do Ifind myself drawn to such tales despite all of the evidence against their veracity? These are questions that I would like to address in book that will be written in the "literary journalist" tradition of Truman Capote, Norman Mailer, and Hunter S. Thompson (only without all the drug use of the latter.)

Such a research trip carries considerable cost. The donations I am asking for will go towards covering per diem incidentals (food, rental car gas, etc.) and research costs (fees, perhaps a decent digital camera, etc.)
