Ruppelt, Edward: The Report On Unidentified Flying Objects. v1. 27 Dec 08
My work now includes em dashes on my assemblages. (I actually started with Dreiser's The Financier.) I do these by hand and individually on the "find/replace" feature of BookDesigner because - frankly - I don't trust any other source to correctly read what's in the text. Take it or leave it.
Getting back to this book, here's a quote from the Wiki:
"Three years later, Ruppelt's book The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects was published. The book is notable because it was, for several subsequent decades, the only account of Air Force UFO studies written by a participant. It remains arguably one of the most level-headed books about UFOs; Hynek suggested that Ruppelt's "book should be required reading for anyone seriously interested in the history of this subject." (Hynek, 175) In the book, Ruppelt detailed his time with Projects Grudge and Blue Book, and offered his assessments of some UFO cases, including a portion he thought were puzzling and unexplained. Ruppelt also revealed much insider material and thinking, including the existence of previously unknown classified documents and studies, such as the Robertson Panel"
The book is fascinating reading. I also included a Fate magazine on the Title Page, about Zombies attacking earth, for humor's sake. If you believe in flying saucers (UFOs), and your fanaticism is challenged - then good. That's why I'm here.
“How to Write the First 3 Paragraphs of YOUR Indie Novel” - by Max Waxwelp1) Always write 3 sentences of exposition; 2) now create some dialogue, preferably no more than 2 sentences; and 3) make certain the dialogue is either inane or humorous. Example:
“Bob, I did not know you wore yellow suspenders,” Sally remarked.
“Gee, Sally, those are not suspenders. I am wearing yellow underwear today,” Bob revealed.
The dialogue above will help produce at least 100 more pages of dialogue.
