Real Monsters at the Bash

This was a quietly awesome moment at Monster Bash. I had the opportunity to talk to Stan Gordon, a Pennsylvania-based UFO and Bigfoot researcher. He is probably most well known for his work on the Kecksburg Incident, but catalogues a vast array of unusual sightings in PA, centering on Westmoreland County. The remarkable thing about Mr. Gordon is his humility and his genuine drive to collect and present the evidence without bias. 
I have read both "Silent Invasion" and "Really Mysterious Pennsylvania," and they are uniformly excellent. Gordon stays well away from theorizing, simply presenting the accounts that have been shared with him and offering the evidence that he and other researchers have been able to obtain. This means that "inconvenient" cases are included, such as experiences in which UFOs and Bigfoot are sighted in tandem. Anathema to many "camps" within Ufology and Bigfootology, they are included here because they are the accounts that were shared with Gordon, and relays them "as is."
It was another highlight among two action packed days. I'm always grateful to have the chance to tell my favorite authors how much I've enjoyed their work. It's even better when they are as kind and generous with their time as Stan Gordon.
