              UPIAR: UFO Bookstore On-line

The UPIAR Cooperative is to turn twenty-years-old in 2002,
having been created in 1982 as the ideal continuation of the
National Committee for Investigations of Anomalous Aerial
Phenomena (CNIFAA), in order to provide a more formal structure
to the publishing of the prestigious magazine UPIAR (=93UFO
Phenomena International Annual Review=94) and to the organization
of ufological events such as the International Colloquium on
=93Human Sciences and UFO Phenomena=94 (held in Salzburg in July of
that same year).

Having become (in 1986) the publishing house for the Italian
Center for UFO Studies (CISU), the Cooperative has now debuted
on the Internet the first Italian e-commerce site dedicated to
UFOs: books and magazines which it has published itself or
originating from international sources; a used-items
marketplace; rare items for collectors and UFO-themed objects of
interest; as well as all C.I.S.U. publications, not to mention
membership to the Center or subscription to its publications,
are now conveniently on display and available for purchase at
the Website www.upiar.com.

Saucers and the Evidence=94), the first book on flying disks
published in Spain.

Another recent loss was that in Germany of Karl Veit (age 74),
who from 1956 through 1988 had headed the cultist UFO group
DUIST (Deutsche UFO/IFO-Studiengesellschaft); published the
magazine UFO Nachrichten (for many years practically the sole
ufological reference in the German language); and translated,
for its own publishing house (Ventla Verlag), books on the most
famous contactees of America (from Adamski to Fry) and the
entire world (from the South-African Klarer to the Italian

             C.I.S.U. On-line Surpasses The 200,000-Mark

Shortly before year=92s end, C.I.S.U. On-line (www.cisu.org)
surpassed the 200,000-visitors  benchmark, as it continued to be
the most-visited (in addition to the first) homepage of an
Italian ufological association on the Internet, not to mention
the richest (over 1,200 files encompassing more than 38

Switching over to a new provider, meanwhile, was the other
Website of the C.I.S.U., UFO On-line (www.ufo.it), following a
few weeks=92 absence from the Net, which with its 447,000 visitors
but first and foremost owing its enormous catalogue of cases,
texts and images  contributes to making the Italian Center for
UFO Studies the principal reference point for telematic Ufology
in the Italian language.
