Fortean Societies Have Existed Before, But…

LOWFI's main site


Hey HS fans! My friend Skylaire Alfvegren's new western US Fortean Society... L.O.W.F.I., or, the League of Western Fortean Intermediatists... has launched on the internet! Woot!

I'd actually wanted to 'wait' (ha!) till Sunday as in my mind I'm still building the sites, (but that'll always be the case though, won't it, now?) but it's already starting to get a lot of buzz and visits, and, since the Anomalist has picked it up, I guess it's official! To quote from Skylaire's first blog post: (which has the title used for this post):
"While there are a handful of UFO organizations, and lots of ghost-hunting gangs out here--a tip of the hat to all of them--what exists for the lone crypto hunter? The conspiracy theorist with an interest in the paranormal? The UFO buff with a cracked, black sense of humor? Or those of us who know that reality is like the contents of a rearview mirror--things in it are often distorted, much bigger than they appear, or can only be glimpsed out of the corner of your eye?"
As the link above and the post title go to the blog for the SoCal region, run by Skylaire, (there are 7 other blogs so far), one should also be sure to explore the main L.O.W.F.I. site at forteanswest.com to discover all the wonders therein, which would include our first Guest Editorial by Nick Pope!
