Tim Beckley is a UFO & Paranormal Pioneer, in fact he's had so many careers that even his girlfriend doens't know what he does for a living.
The editor of UFO magazine Nancy Birnes has described Timothy Green Beckley as the “Hunter Thompson” of Ufology.
Since an early age, his life has more or less revolved around the paranormal. At the age of three, an invisible force saved his life. Raised in house thought to be haunted, his grandfather saw a headless horseman. Tim also underwent an out of body experiences starting at age six and saw his first of three UFOs when he was but ten, as well as two more sightings since - including an attempt to communicate with one of these objects.
Tim grew up listening to the only all night talk show in the country that revolved around the strange and unexplained. Long John Nebel's guests included the early UFO contactees who claimed to have visited other planets and built time machines in the desert. Tim was fascinated by everything that went bump in the night - or even in the daylight for that matter. Tim appeared on Long John's show years later and numerous times since as well as has been a frequent guest on hundreds of programs, which have come and gone just like ghosts in the night. He is a popular guest on Coast to Coast AM and has appeared on William Shatners Weird or What? Tim has also appeared on an episode of UFO Hunters regarding the dreaded Men in Black. He has his own podcast, Unraveling the Secrets and MR. UFOs Secret Files, a new YouTube channel as well as now co-hosting “Exploring the Bizarre” on the KCOR Digital Radio Network.
Tim started his career as a writer early on - at age 14 he purchased a mimeograph machine and began to publish the Interplanetary News Service Report. Over the years, he has written over 25 books on everything from rock music to the secret MJ12 papers. He has been a stringer for the national tabloids such as the Enquirer and editor of over 30 different magazines (most of which never lasted more than a couple of issues). His longest running effort was the newsstand publication UFO UNIVERSE that went for 11 years. Today he is the president of Inner Light/Global Communications and editor of the Conspiracy Journal and Bizarre Bazaar.
He is one of the few Americans ever invited to speak before closed-door meetings on UFOs presided over by the late Earl of Clancarty at the House of Lords in England. He visited Loch Ness in Scotland while in the UK and went home with a belief that Nessie is somehow connected with the dragons of mythology as well as strange discs engraved on cathedrals and ghostly phenomenon.
The Inner Light Publications and Global Communications' catalog of books and video titles now number over 200, including the works of Tim Swartz, T. Lobsang Rampa, Commander X, Brad Steiger, John Keel, Tracy Twyman, Wendelle Stevens and a host of many other authors.
He probably knows more about the history of the UFO movement since the early 1950’s then anyone today. Because of his fair and balanced approach, he makes friends with everyone regardless of whether or not he believed their stories. Tim has written over 30 books himself, and contributed to dozens more, including:

THIS WEEK'S GUESTS
THE SOLUTION TO THE UFO PROBLEM? ABANDON IT!
For those involved in UFO disclosure it is obvious that the U.S. government and military knows the truth about the reality of UFOs, but this information is strictly top-secret. Others see the UFO mystery as a mirage, conjured up by the Air Force and CIA to obscure classified, black budget projects such as the U2 spy plane.
Author Larry Hancock, however, thinks that there is more to the UFO phenomena then trickery by intelligence service spooks. He says that there is no doubt that unidentified aerial objects were taken seriously by military intelligence, but that intelligence failure over some three decades of official inquiries prevented the UFO problem from being elevated to a level of true national security tasking.
"The ongoing Air Force decision to study the problem only at the level of individual incidents and the larger failure to task the broader intelligence community with a longer term, strategic analysis of security related UFO activities ensured that the fundamental problem was simply not addressed. The end result was nothing more than over a thousand highly unconventional and anomalous UFO reports officially classified and archived as 'Unknowns.'”
This week on Exploring the Bizarre, our guest is Larry Hancock, author of the book "Unidentified: The National Intelligence Problem of UFOs." Hancock brings his knowledge of cultural anthropology, military history and national security subjects to examine UFOs, concluding that both military and civilian intelligence groups failed to resolve what was officially stated to be a serious security and air defense problem.
Larry Hancock brings his formal training in history and cultural anthropology to his research and writing on Cold War history and national security subjects. A graduate of the University of New Mexico, he earned is BA with honors, majoring in history, cultural anthropology and education. Following service in the United States Air Force, his career in computer/communications and technology marketing allowed him the opportunity to become involved in and consult on strategic analysis and planning studies. Following retirement, Larry returned to his long term interest in historical research. Known as a “document geek”, he researched and published several collections of CIA, FBI and military documents prior to beginning his writing efforts. His document work led to his becoming a board member of the Mary Ferrell Foundation, a major online interactive history archive. With seven books in print, his most recent works include an exploration of long term patterns in covert action and deniable warfare (“Shadow Warfare”), the effectiveness of national command authority and command and control practices (“Surprise Attack”) and the national intelligence problem of UFOs "Unidentified: The National Intelligence Problem of UFOs."
Preston Dennett began investigating UFOs and the paranormal in 1986 when he discovered that his family, friends and co-workers were having dramatic unexplained encounters.

His articles have appeared in numerous magazines including Fate, Atlantis Rising, MUFON UFO Journal, Nexus, Paranormal Magazine, UFO magazine, Mysteries Magazine, Ufologist and others. His writing has been translated into several different languages including German, Portuguese, French, Russian, and Icelandic. He has appeared on numerous radio and television programs. His research has been presented in the L.A. Times, the L.A. Daily News, the Dallas Morning News and other newspapers. He has taught classes on various paranormal subjects and lectures across the United States. He currently resides in Reseda, California.
WHERE IS HEAVEN?
IS IT MORE EASILY ACCESSIBLE THAN WE HAVE BEEN TAUGHT?
IS THERE SUCH A THING AS A UFO/AFTERLIFE “CONNECTION”?
NEWS FLASH! – In England a group known as The Scole Afterlife Project held closely-controlled séances for almost a decade. They set up cameras and other electronic devices to record apparitions that manifested themselves; deceased friends and family members of the experimenters materialized on film and images of the typical gray aliens were captured as well. Also recorded were scenes that look as if they had originated on other worlds, and, when played back, seemed to prove the existence of other realms and realities.
Authors Timothy Beckley and Diane Tessman tell us that instead of being a place that no one can possibly reach or enter while they are still living, Heaven is closer than we think, that it might be right above our heads. We could more easily access this realm if we open our minds and accept what we are being told by UFO abductees and contactees, many of whom have established communications with a higher intelligence that has the ability to travel back and forth between other dimensions – including Heaven and Earth – and act as “greeters” to those who have passed to the other side.
If you have lost loved ones and have hopes of communicating with them, this book will prove to be an important one in your life. Here are probing questions from the authors that offer all the evidence you should need in order to be assured that there is a vibrant afterlife that leads to exciting new things:
IS IT POSSIBLE TO ENTER HEAVEN THROUGH THE PEARLY GATES ON A UFO?
CAN OUR LOVED ONES RETURN TO EARTH TO VISIT US ONBOARD WHAT WE MIGHT THINK OF AS A “SPACESHIP”?
DO ALIENS, ANGELS AND SPIRIT BEINGS HAVE ANYTHING – OR EVERYTHING – IN COMMON?
CAN OUR DEPARTED RELATIVES PICK UP THE TELEPHONE AND LITERALLY CALL US FROM THE AFTERLIFE?
IS IT POSSIBLE THAT WE CAN USE OUR HOME COMPUTER TO SEND AN “EMAIL” TO OUR DECEASED FRIENDS?
DO OUR LATE FRIENDS AND FAMILY PROVIDE PROOF THAT THEY STILL LOVE US BY LEAVING “HIDDEN” OBJECTS AROUND THE HOUSE THAT THEY HAVE TELEPORTED FROM PARADISE?
DO OUR BELOVED ANIMAL FRIENDS REINCARNATE AND COME BACK TO US AS THE “NEW PETS” IN OUR LIFE?
Yes! Here is remarkable proof that the doorway is always open to the Heavenly realms and that loved ones, friends and associates can visit us and then return safely to their new place in the cosmos among the stars.
