my father is now a literary agent-editor.  He had the chance to work on the
unpublished memoirs of a retired Army Intel Colonel, Phillip J. Corso.  Phil
was also a Senate investigator for Strom Thurmond after being in the Army
R&D's "Foreign" Technology Division, as in not-of-this-Earth technology...
well... that whole thing, including his claiming he was at a NATA base
monitoring things flying around at 8000+ mph during the 1950's, did not sit
well with my father.  He thought the project was doomed.  The stuff about
Ike's NSC was good, the stuff about G2 in Rome during WWII was good, the
stories about working for Gen. Willoughby under MacArthur was good, but the
UFO thing was not what he had in mind...

well it turned out the Colonel hooked up with a former editor from Aviation
Week & Space Tech., to explore the idea...

So now Simon & Schuster will put it out in July, the title is, "The Day After
Roswell".
