Journal of a UFO Investigator by David Halperin

Journal of a UFO Investigator is the best coming-of-age book, using the Cold War UFO Phenomenon to look at the lives of Baby Boomers and to tell the story of one teen that studied UFO sightings from 1963 – 1967. while figuring out his life.  The author did this himself as well, going on to become a professor of Jewish history, Heavenly Ascent and Biblical languages.

Extraterrestrials and Men In Black keep teen Danny Shapiro busy, while he processes his community’s prejudices and survives the bullies at school. This story could help many of our youth to treasure their differences, stand up to bullying, and release their thoughts of suicide.    

This is one of the most innovative sci-fi book of the year. For a full review, see:

Moby Dick, the Great White Whale and Captain Ahab’s obsession with his obliteration is complex, heavy with symbolism nd l-o-n-g.  Themes include politics, racism, and religion as well as class disparity. The remake with Patrick Stewart as Ahab is excellent and reminds me of Ahab’s last words spit from the mouth of Kahn Noonien Singh (Ricardo Montalban) in Star Trek: The Wrath of Kahn. This led to The Voyage Home and a pair of endangered whales that saved the world in 1986 and the 23rd Century.   For videos of the great comedy moments of the film, back story, and bloopers, see:
