Just Don't Call Me Clive

April 21, 2007

In alien HeatA quite interesting review of Steve Dewey and John Reie’s In Alien Heat: The Warminster Mystery Revisited finally appeared in The Warminster Journal in December. Though they manage to refer to Steve as “Clive” a few times in the course of the review, it does provide some insight into the Journal‘s coverage of the phenomenon back in the 1960. Here are a few choice morsels from the review: “Steve Dewey and John Ries grew up in Warminster, children in the time when Britain’s, if not the world’s, spotlight was on the town, looking for the answer to the question ‘Is there anyone out there?…Clive and John find it surprising how few of the sightings that fill Arthur Shuttlewood’s book The Warminster Mystery had found their way into the 52 editions of 1965’s Journal. The truth is that the owner and editor, Charlie Mills (my grandfather), thought this a whole load of rubbish and did not want the Journal to be the laughing stock of the town…With over 300 pages of text [In Alien Heat] must be considered a ‘good read’ for anyone interested in Warminster, UFOs, or human behaviour..there is plenty in there to think about.”
