OMG THATS SO SAD. I had just bought his novel The Mothman Prophecies a week ago and finished reading it yesterday. There are a few questions I thought I wanted to ask him, but then I find out that he died today!

And of course, what will remain in the front page news for a month? Michael Jackson. And this man is swept into obscurity by the mainstream media. R.I.P. John A. Keel

Keel Im very disappointed to learn of this great man's death, though his passing will only be remembered by those who dare to question and research into our understanding of our own reality. The funny thing is, although the media would dismiss Keel and his work as unbelievable, nutty ravings, Michael Jackson was obviously more crazy than Keel ever was

All those who dare question perceptions are meant to remain obscure.
