In this week’s eSkeptic:
SKEPTIC MAGAZINE 20.4
Unlike other renowned scientists, Robert Trivers has spent time behind bars, drove a getaway car for Huey P. Newton, and founded an armed group in Jamaica to protect gay men from mob violence.
In this issue 20.4 of Skeptic magazine we present an excerpt from Trivers’ memoir, Wild Life: Adventures of an Evolutionary Biologist. In the entertaining tradition of Surely You’re Joking Mr. Feynman, Trivers tells us in his inimitable voice about the inimitable life behind the revolutionary science.

Flying Saucer “Space Brothers” from Venus!? (issue 57)
In this issue we’ll hear tales from a man who said he met flying saucer travellers—human beings from Venus and several other planets! Amateur astronomer George Adamski became famous in the 1950s for photographs of objects he said were alien spaceships. His stories only got wilder from there. He claimed he befriended saucer people, rode in their spaceships, and even attended a meeting on Saturn. His books about these adventures became a public sensation. But what was the truth behind Adamski’s storytelling? Find out in this issue of Junior Skeptic!
