Found in the files: Kurt Glemser, Alien Contact

Still going through the "room of doom" where boxes and stacks of books and other ephemera await my organizing. In this chaos I found this self-published booklet by Kurt Glemser, a Canadian UFO researcher who published a few titles in the 1970s. I don't know much more than that:

There isn't an introduction, ISBN, or any information regarding publication except "Galaxy Press, 489 Krag St., Ontario N28m 1L2, Canada.

I did find a source on-line that gave 1973 as the publication date.

One of his publications: Glemser co-wrote The Men in Black with Robert Beneschan.

Amethyst, Princess of Gem World

I used to be a mild comic book nerd. Collected comics of female characters, and supernatural vibed characters, like The Shadow, Dr. Strange, X-Files, etc.

Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld, was one I collected. I know I still have these somewhere -- I hope. Haven't been in the comic book realm for a long time, so was surprised to find that this issue, depending on condition of course, is now selling between $400.00 (!) and $125.00. Time to go into my room full of boxes and search for my comics.
