Hello List, Not being a ufologist and therefore mostly immune from their spats and jealousies, was curious why Creighton should arouse passions - so looked him up and got some interesting links, bearing in mind that I already read and revere Andrew Lang as one of the most informed and intelligent of the early anthropologists. BTW - it seems that Creighton was a bit touchy also - as you can see in the second of these links: Obit - Gordon Creighton 1908 - 2003 http://www.fsr.org.uk/GCreighton.htm "A Brief Account of the True Nature of the "UFO Entities" by Gordon Creighton http://www.conspiracyarchive.com/UFOs/UFO_Entities.htm which referenced this: "The Secret Commonwealth" by Robert Kirk 1691, re-issued by anthropologist and folklorist Andrew Lang in 1893 http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/celt/sce/index.htm Thanks for the initial spur.
