Glenn Campbell is best know as a self-appointed Area 51 expert in the 1990s, appearing in dozens of TV shows and profiled in the New York Times (June 24, 1994). If you have heard of Area 51, it is due in part to Glenn's effort to organize information about the base and make it accessible to the mainstream media. A professed agnostic on UFOs, Glenn was known for his evenhanded approach to the many fantastic claims associated with the secret base. Glenn's first book was a self-published guide to exploring the surrounding area. His 1994 AREA 51 VIEWER'S GUIDE is now available FREE as a printable PDF on his website.
In the new century, Glenn has shifted gears, becoming more philosophical. From 2005 to 2008, he appointed himself the unofficial "Family Court Guy" in Las Vegas, sitting in on court hearings and reporting on them on a website and a newsletter. He hoped to bring the same attention to child welfare, delinquency and divorce as he did for Area 51. (Profiled in the Las Vegas Sun, Dec. 18, 2005.) His experiences in Family Court became the basis for his first philosophy book, THE CASE AGAINST MARRIAGE.
Glenn is an accidental novelist. His first novel, LIMBO, was conceived, written and published in 58 days. After this first spontaneous "practice novel," Glenn embarked on a much more complex one he has been contemplating for years. HARPER JUNCTION tells the story of a 3/4-inch boy living on a HO scale train layout. This 120,000-word novel, written in 2014, was released as an ebook on Jan. 1, 2015.
Employed in a field that allows him to travel, Glenn now does it continuously, with no fixed residence. He has visited 55 countries so far. His stunning photos from around the world can be found on Twitter (@Peripatetia), Facebook (/BadDalaiLama) and Instagram (@BadDalaiLama). Glenn's daily philosophical musings are found on a separate Twitter account: @BadDalaiLama ("the Dalai Lama's evil twin").
