ANDY CHATS TO A SCEPTIC
This month Andy agreed to give an interview to the Merseyside Skeptics Society’s podcast show Be Reasonable, presented by confirmed sceptic Michael Marshall. The interview was constructive and reasonable. Though it is unlikely to turn a staunch sceptic into a ‘believer’, credit must be given to the show for at least allowing the voice of its targets to be heard, and Andy was happy to take part. Hear the half-hour show here.

MORE REVIEWS FOR A FUTURE WORLD VISION
Richard Smith’s book A Future World Vision, edited by Andy and published by his Vital Signs Publishing company, has received two more positive reviews in recent weeks, some extracts from which follow:
“Our political, economic and social systems are in need of urgent reform and need a dose of common sense to fix the problems, says UK author Richard Smith, whose ophthalmology career has taken him around the world and helped him see the big picture in geopolitics… Smith also explores shifts in consciousness and spirituality, the implication of ETs in our midst, free energy alternatives and a path of truth where we develop fresh thinking towards establishing ‘genuine community’… An insightful guide to addressing our seemingly intractable situations” – NEXUS MAGAZINE
“The modern world is at a crossroads. There have been momentous developments in terms of science, medicine and technology, and a sophisticated approach to human rights and democracy, but clearly there are now major systemic problems… Richard Smith proposes how a better future could be forged. He presents a case that sensible changes on the individual, collective and political levels can transform our culture for the better. It is easy to talk in generalisations or with grand revolutionary flourishes, but Smith avoids such pitfalls and looks at the means to bring about real transformation by suggesting common sense reforms… ‘A Future World Vision’ is a timely and insightful guide to 21st century dilemmas, offering a new approach to politics based on ethics and cooperation” – NEW DAWN

NEW BOOK – A FUTURE WORLD VISION
Andy Thomas is pleased to announce the publication of a brand new book through his Vital Signs Publishing arm, which should be of interest to anyone looking for a gleam of practical hope in turbulent times.
Andy says: “A Future World Vision: The Reform of Common Sense in the 21st Century is a very timely and useful handbook. Although I am not the author this time, I have edited and published the book, and provided a foreword for it because I believe it deserves to be widely read. The author, Richard Smith, has produced a sharp and heartily readable guide that I would greatly recommend to everyone. A few advance copies were made available at the Glastonbury Symposium, to a very positive response, and the book is now fully available to order online or by post.” Details follow!
A Future World Vision: The Reform of Common Sense in the 21st Century
274 pages, paperback
Publisher: Vital Signs Publishing
Signed copies only £11 (inc. P&P) from Vital Signs Publishing
SYNOPSIS: How did we get to where we are today, and how can we best move forward positively from here? In this perceptive and accessible investigation, Richard Smith puts the shape of recent centuries into context and proposes how a better future could be forged with simple common sense reforms of our democracies, everyday lives, economy, and use of resources and technology.
A Future World Vision also explores the implications of the possible arrival of extra-terrestrials, ‘free energy’ devices and spiritual shifts, and looks at how to fairly deal with global conflicts, population crises and the rise of conspiracy theories, in this timely and insightful guide to 21st century dilemmas.
Author Richard Smith has been involved in the ophthalmic optics industry for many years and has visited 25% of UN-recognised countries. He was one of the founder members of The Parallel Community project and is a familiar figure in the alternative world. Richard stood as an independent parliamentary candidate in Cornwall for the 2005 UK General Election.
FIRST REVIEW (unsolicited!):
“This new book is one of the most no-nonsense, insightful and articulate of its kind that I have ever read. It is written with obvious passion and sincerity, is immensely well-researched and above all immediately accessible. It is also extremely ‘dippable’ as well and there is a nugget of wisdom on almost every page. The book is absolutely essential reading for anyone trying to make sense of the world around them and why it seems to be going to Hell in a handcart… The book covers a multitude of grey areas – no stone is left unexamined in an effort to find a practical solution that might just help us find an answer before it’s too late. This is an absolute must-read for anyone… Go out, buy it and learn!” – PHENOMENA MAGAZINE
FROM THE FOREWORD BY ANDY THOMAS:
“I am immediately struck by the unusually practical tone that Richard Smith’s writings exhibit. Here are some of the problems of modern society being identified and put under the microscope, as is necessary to do when directly faced with its many dysfunctions, but here also are some well-thought-out solutions being offered… Richard’s writings speak plainly with unabashed outrage at some wrongs, but also offer encouragement and insight for those seeking rights. Richard does not shy away from moving beyond what some might reductively call ‘real world’ issues, as the later part of the book shows. His willingness to widen out the implications of what reform might really mean for us if we apply it to all ways of thinking, even if rejected by the mainstream, is admirable. His views on conspiracy theories, for instance, are fair and balanced in ways which media pundits might take a lesson from… The book dissects some selected key issues in a way that helps kickstart wider discussion of necessary reform in a number of important areas. His analysis does a fine job of explaining the historical developments that have led us to be where we are, and it is refreshingly accessible and incisive. More importantly, Richard does not point the finger at the governing classes as the sole source of where required change must come from, but also shines a light on how we all might look again at the ways in which we live our own lives within the systems that currently bind us. Change, if change is to occur, must come from both inside and out, above and below.”
Ordering direct from Vital Signs Publishing not only gets you a signed copy, but also helps support the author and publisher (and thus future projects) more directly, but if you prefer to go through Amazon, it is there too.
If you enjoy the book, please feel free to add a review to the book’s Amazon page, whoever you order it from!

ANDY ON LBC RADIO
On 18th June, on the day the Russians announced they were conducting their own investigations into aspects of the NASA Moon landings, Andy was invited onto LBC Radio, London’s leading talk radio station, to discuss some of the many theories which question whether the true story about the landings has really been told. The discussion was fair and balanced, although some later mainstream callers provided the traditional heated responses to such theories! As yet, there is no podcast available of the show, but if one emerges we will update this entry.

TWO NEW RADIO INTERVIEWS WITH ANDY
Andy has recently given two new interviews for international radio stations, both of which are now available to hear on YouTube or as podcasts. Andy was recently interviewed on the Ronnie McMullenShow, widely networked across the US, where he spoke to DJ Ronnie McMullen about his background with investigating crop circles and UFOs, and the development of his wider truth issues work. This interview can be heard here. Later the same week, Andy was a guest on a Virtual Vision FM ‘webinar’, where he discussed similar issues but at greater length, on-camera via Skype. Technical issues caused a delay in Andy’s appearance, but he comes into the show at about 20 minutes in, and the whole programme can be watched here.

ANDY CONTRIBUTES NEW BOOK FOREWORD
Back in 1998, researcher Terry Wilson compiled the first crucial database of historical crop formation reports, The Secret History of Crop Circles, demonstrating categorically that the circle mystery was not just a modern prank, but something with great longevity. The book, with a foreword by Andy Thomas, presented important evidence for this oft-attacked phenomenon, but fell out of print for some years. Now the book is happily available again, updated by its author and in Kindle form. Terry offered Andy the chance to write a new foreword for the book, and Andy has revised his own contribution accordingly. Secret History… is one of the most significant ‘cerealogical’ publications, and its diligent gathering of crop circle reports from the last few centuries makes for vital reading and comes highly recommended. The book is published via Amazon, and can be bought via download here.

NEW US VERSION OF TRUTH AGENDA IS OUT!
A brand new American version of The Truth Agenda has just been published in the US, by the renowned Adventures Unlimited Press, as run by the influential explorer and author David Hatcher Childress. Based largely on the third UK edition, some edits have been made to open the text more directly to a US readership (with US spelling), and a few further content updates have been made, but it is essentially the same book which the UK has been treated to so far. To make the book viable for marketing in the US, the colour has been sacrificed, so this new edition is in black and white, but the same layout remains and the content and analysis remains sharp and relevant! [The full colour UK edition will remain the edition available in Europe and for sales made through Vital Signs Publishing and Amazon UK or EU.] It is good, after a limited distribution in the US up to now, that the book will now receive the exposure it deserves in the States. The book is available directly from Adventures Unlimited here, or from the US Amazon.com here.

NEW THIRD, UPDATED & EXPANDED EDITION OF THE TRUTH AGENDA NOW FULLY AVAILABLE
Following a few advance copies, the new, third, updated and expanded version of Andy Thomas’s The Truth Agenda is now officially available. Since its first edition in 2009, The Truth Agenda has been acclaimed as the best all-round guide to the big picture of unexplained mysteries, global cover-ups and visions and prophecies for our times. Its revised 2011 edition cemented its reputation, and now this third updated and rewritten version (expanded to 404 pages), with a brand new cover and subtitle, provides the definitive experience.
For new readers, The Truth Agendareveals why so many people do not believe the establishment is telling us the true stories behind current events, why interest in the paranormal and the occult is rife throughout the ruling classes, what their not-so-hidden control agendas are really about, and what we can all do to create positive change as a balance, using cutting-edge consciousness research and examples of inspired collective action. To see what many people have said about the book, reviews of The Truth Agenda can be found here.
Although retaining the general feel of the original, the new version has been entirely re-set with a new layout, and much updated, with many extra entries and additions, including a whole new chapter which looks at the broader implications of what these current times may mean for those with an ‘alternative’ outlook. Nearly every paragraph of the original has been updated and revised in some way, with lots of new information added in-between, to refresh the book and enable it to be used as a vital tool to help move forward into this ‘New Era’, which the ancients anticipated so long ago.
To mark the new version of the book, the Vital Signs Publishing website has been completely revamped and updated. All copies of books bought through Vital Signs are now personally signed by the author. Take a look, here. Or order through Amazon here. If you like the book, please post up a review on its Amazon page – many thanks! The book is also available through Waterstones.

CONSPIRACIES – THE NEW BOOK BY ANDY THOMAS IS OUT NOW
Andy is pleased to announce that, after two year’s work, his new book is now out and fully available. Entitled Conspiracies: The Facts – The Theories – The Evidence, this is a focused investigation of some of the most famous conspiracy theories of all time, demonstrating just why it is that interest in them simply refuses to go away. Produced by the renowned Watkins Publishing, the book is being published simultaneously in the UK, USA, Canada and Australia, with foreign language editions hopefully to come. This is not a sequel to (nor a replacement for) Truth Agenda, but instead helps deepen comprehension of the whole conspiracy subject in an intelligent and succinct way. Opening with a insightful analysis of what conspiracy theory really means and why it should be taken more seriously, Conspiracies goes on a journey to explore the development of conspiracy scenarios, from fascinating early examples such as the Roman and Elizabethan periods, to World War controversies and more modern events such as Watergate, the USS Liberty affair and the suspicious deaths of Dr David Kelly, JFK and Princess Diana. The power of the New World Order and extra-terrestrial hypotheses are also explored in comprehensive but accessible ways, and 9/11 and the Moon landings are revisited by Andy, placed into context with the fine details of other pressing cases. Overall, the book looks at the sociological implications of belief in conspiracies and the serious consequences of the establishment’s continual refusal to acknowledge the surprisingly substantial evidence for them. Conspiracies looks set to be a very welcome contribution to reaching understanding of what has contributed to the uncertain times we find ourselves in today. Andy is promoting the book with a new presentation, A Conspiracy History of the World, while the book itself can be easily found/ordered in bookshops or ordered directly online through retailers such as Amazon (click here to go directly to the Amazon page). A Kindle edition is also available. [If you enjoy the book, do please add a review to the book’s Amazon page, by the way, as this helps increase further interest!]

PAUL BURA 1944 – 2013
On 5th February 2013, Andy Thomas’s good friend Paul Bura passed away, age 69. Andy and Paul co-authored the 1997 book Quest For Contact, which recounted their psychic questing adventures in Sussex with UFOs and crop circles, together with other members of the Southern Circular Research team between 1992-1996. Andy also edited Paul’s autobiography, Stepping to the Drummer (see About Andy for more). Paul touched the hearts of many people over the years, with his warm company, exquisite poetry, many books, popular broadcasting tones on television and radio (Paul was one of the voices for the original Larry The Lamb TV series, for instance) and psychic channelling skills. His work was highly praised by the likes of Christy Brown, Ian Dury and Uri Geller. Paul survived a severe brain tumour in the late 1990s, and recovered to continue publishing books, writing poetry and channelling. It is curious to note that the very last two poems Paul posted on his website just days before he passed include one very moving one about the death of his mother, and another about ‘stepping through’ into ‘timelessness’ and ‘spacelessness’… Paul’s website, with many articles and poems, can be found here. Andy says: ‘Paul’s friendship and support had a very positive and lasting effect on my life path. He will be greatly missed by so many, but his influence, and his words, live on.’ Love and condolences go to Paul’s family and all who knew him.

ANDY ON NBC TELEVISION
This photo shows Andy being interviewed recently for the US television series Caught on Camera. Usually concerned with real-life cops and car chases, the programme will soon be branching out with a Mysteries and Monstersspin-off to reinvestigate some notable ‘paranormal’ footage. For this, Andy was interviewed about the infamous 1996 video of a crop circle forming at Oliver’s Castle in Wiltshire, to talk about the circumstances and endless controversy surrounding it. Going by previous experience with US TV, the programme is likely to be yet another debunk. However, hopefully some fragments of interest will remain! Interested viewers in the US should keep an eye out for the schedules from April 2013 which is when the episode is first due for broadcast. Repeats, ad infinitum, should follow for a few years…

THE TRUTH AGENDA BECOMES A SOCIOLOGY TEXTBOOK AT A CANADIAN UNIVERSITY
A Professor of Sociology at Canada’s Vancouver Island University, described as a ‘centre of excellence for teaching, applied research and learning’, is currently using The Truth Agenda as one of the textbooks for a course in ‘Social Control and Resistance’. In a personal communication to Andy, Professor Richard Fredericks writes:
‘I read your book during last summer, and quite liked the even-handed approach you take to the many controversial topics you tackle. So, I decided to assign it to my second year Sociology students, for a course called Social Control and Resistance. I have assigned them three texts, which I loosely dubbed the conventional (a standard academic introduction to Social Control), the unconventional (your book), and the potential (Margaret Atwood’s dystopian The Handmaid’s Tale).
A key concern of the course, and this is what underlies the “resistance” part of it, is the whole issue of knowledge, its creation and its control. I take an Orwellian tack, and am keen to introduce my students to that full slate of forbidden and alternative ideas your book so effectively tackles. It should be fun, and, ideally, very eye-opening for them.’
Andy says: ‘I’m very happy to hear that the book is being used in such a leading establishment. Anything that introduces these kinds of important subjects to a wider demographic can only be helpful in giving them much-needed exposure. I appreciate Professor Fredericks’ boldness in being prepared to tackle ‘alternative’ views in a mainstream environment, and look forward to hearing what the students make of the book and the issues explored therein’.

ANDY ON PINEAPPLE DANCE STUDIOS!
Continuing his many appearances on TV and radio, 2010 saw Andy feature on SKY 1’s massive hit show Pineapple Dance Studios. Fans of the programme will know that this reality-TV series followed the lives of those working at the famed dance studios in London (with now huge-celebrity Louie Spence as its main star). One of the Pineapple staff members became interested in the paranormal after seeing one of Andy Thomas’s lectures on crop circles some years before – so a SKY TV crew was dispatched to film Andy give a special presentation in 2010 for the London Forum group, and parts of the lecture and a vox-pop interview with Andy and some audience members were included in the edition of Pineapple Dance Studios broadcast on Easter Sunday. A rather surreal but fun dance featuring ‘ETs’ in a crop circle was also included, which did NOT feature Andy… The clip can be seen by clicking here.
