Flying Saucer Review

Quarterly British publication on UFOs. The Flying Saucer Review was founded in 1955 in London by Derek Dempster, a former Royal Air Force pilot. Under the editorship of Brinsley le Poer Trench (1956-59) it developed a reputation as an uncritical periodical, but during the tenure of Charles Bowen it became one of the most influential journals serving the UFO community. Bowen retired because of illness in 1982 and was succeeded by Gordon Creighton. Creighton, influenced by various conspiracy theories, has aliented many in the UFO establishment who no longer consider the Flying Saucer Review a serious UFO organ.
