About the Author
Interested in "facts that don't fit" from an early age, in 1991, Greg Bishop co-founded a magazine called The Excluded Middle, which was a journal of UFOs, conspiracy research, psychedelia and new science. His first book, "Wake Up Down There!," anthologized many of the articles and features. Greg's second book was "Project Beta: The Story of Paul Bennewitz, National Security, and the Creation of a Modern UFO Myth,"which documented a government campaign of disinformation perpetrated against an unsuspecting U.S. citizen. "Weird California," a portrait of strange and eerie history and places in the Golden State, was released in 2006. From December 2007 to November 2011, Greg blogged for the UFO and paranormal site Ufomystic. "It Defies Language!" released in 2016,is a collection of essays on UFOs, the U.S. government, and fringe issues and personalities.
His current podcast can be heard at radiomisterioso.com. Interviews with fringe-topic researchers and weird music are the usual fare. He has lectured at numerous paranormal conferences and meetings. He also flies paragliders and ultralight aircraft and is a licensed private pilot.

1) Spend six months listening to every paranormal podcast you can;
2) Buy IT DEFIES LANGUAGE! and adjust your opinions and B.S. (belief system) accordingly.
What Greg Bishop has done with this book is a masterpiece in postmodern ufological thought. His admirable, ardent adherence to true agnosticism—open to both sides of the UFO debate—is a position anyone involved in Forteana should aspire to. In the coming years, I look forward to revisiting IT DEFIES LANGUAGE! in the hope that it will always keep both of my ideological feet planted firmly on the ground, keeping my "inner true believer" in check and my "inner skeptic" in a perpetual state of humble curiosity. Peppered with exciting, refreshing, envelope-pushing thought experiments and eye-opening insider knowledge, Bishop has scored a home-run with this work.
This book shines light on the goverment involvement in disinformation regarding the ufo enigma as well as pointing out lots of other interesring issues. Buy this book. The art is also fantastic.
