Bestselling Author Dr. Kevin Randle To Be Keynote Speaker
He is considered the world’s top expert on the Roswell UFO Incident, having written the bestselling 1991 book about the case UFO Crash at Roswell, which became a 1994 Showtime motion picture starring Kyle MacLachlan, Martin Sheen, and Dwight Yoakam. Dr. Randle is a retired lieutenant colonel who served in Vietnam as a helicopter pilot and in Iraq as a battalion intelligence officer. He began writing for UFO magazines and eventually moved to books. He has appeared on countless radio and television programs and has hosted his own radio show. He has written books about UFOs, science fiction, action adventure and even a vampire novel. His newest book, The Government UFO Files: The Conspiracy of Cover-Up will be published in May 2014.
A prolific writer, world famous UFO investigator, pilot, decorated veteran of two wars, accomplished science fiction author, holder of a PhD and noted blogger about UFOs, Dr. Randle certainly qualifies as “one of the world’s most interesting men.” We are thrilled that he has chosen to speak at the “Out of This World” Conference in Edinburg, where he will bring us two amazing lectures based on his many years of research into the UFO phenomenon.
Kathleen Marden to Speak on the Betty & Barney Hill UFO Abduction
The UFO encounter of Betty Hill and her husband Barney is considered the world’s strongest case of alien abduction. Although the Hills have both passed away, Betty’s niece, Kathleen Marden, a recognized expert on alien abduction, continues to tell their incredible story to audiences all over the world. You will be astonished as Kathleen brings us the “inside story” of the world’s most famous “close encounter of the fourth kind.” You don’t want to miss this!
Kathleen recently authored the book Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience, co-written with Stanton T. Friedman, She first became involved in the case as a young person when her aunt Betty Hill called her shortly after the incident happened and told her about it. Since then, she has spent years studying the case and other abduction incidents.
It is a privilege and an honor to have Kathleen Marden speaking at our conference in Edinburg.
Special Screening of “Roswell the Movie” with Comments From Kevin Randle
As part of the Edinburg “Out of This World!” UFO Conference, we will be having a special screening of Roswell the Movie, a critically-acclaimed motion picture based on Kevin Randle’s book UFO Crash at Roswell. “Roswell offers a nice, chilly case of the creeps!” the Washington Post said in its review of the movie. The critically-acclaimed film features Kyle MacLachlan, Martin Sheen, and Dwight Yoakum in the story of the reported crash of a flying saucer near Roswell, New Mexico, in July 1947.
Dr. Randle will provide introduction and commentary regarding the making of the film and the adaptation of his book for the screenplay. After the movie, he will present the complete story of how the Roswell Incident really happened, based on interviews with hundreds of witnesses to the historic event. Special thanks to Executive Producer Paul Davids for granting rights to show the film.
Melanie Young to Speak on “Ancient Alien” Skull Found in Mexico
We are happy to announce that researcher Melanie Young has joined our speaker line-up for the Edinburg “Out of This World” UFO Conference. Melanie and her husband Ray are the the owners of one of the strangest archaeological finds perhaps ever – a “humanoid” skull that was found in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Melanie, who was a neonatal nurse at the time she first saw the skull, immediately suspected that it did not come from any known species of life on our planet. It was clearly not a deformed human skull. Over the years, scientific tests determined that the skull probably did not belong to any creature found on Earth. Melanie believes it belonged to an extraterrestrial being. She has appeared on the History Channel’s Ancient Aliens and has spoken at events all over the U.S. about this strange artifact. Join Melanie as she presents “The Mystery of the Starchild Skull,” explaining how the skull was found, how she came into possession of it, and the results of DNA testing that has been conducted on it in recent years. This topic is extremely fascinating!
Former Star Trek Writer David Bennett Carren to Speak
We are extremely happy to announce that former Star Trek and Stargate screenwriter David Bennett Carren will speak at the “Out of This World!” UFO Conference. David has directed, written or produced more than 200 films and television shows, including many science fiction shows.
David has won many awards for his writing, including First Place in the New York Television and Film Festival, a Writer’s Guild Award Nomination, finalist honors at the Austin Film Festival on multiple projects, and Gold and Bronze Remi Awards. He is also a novelist, and his first novel, No Power on Earth, published by Medallion Books, was released to favorable reviews. His second novel, I’ve Killed Mother has been optioned for a possible film. His short story “If She Dies,” was adapted by David for an episode of The New Twilight Zone.
An episode he wrote for Star Trek: the Next Generation, called “Future Imperfect” is still remembered fondly by the many fans of the show. In David’s story, after an away mission to Alpha Onias III interrupts Commander Riker’s birthday party, the first officer suddenly awakens in sick-bay sixteen years in the future where he is the captain of the Enterprise and about to negotiate a peace treaty with the Romulan Star Empire.
“Future Imperfect” is only one of many television programs and films that David has had a hand in crafting over the past years. We are very pleased that he will be joining us as a speaker at our conference.

The Edinburg “Out of This World!” Conference and Festival is brought to you by the Texas UFO Museum & Research Library (http://TexasUFOmuseum.com). The museum has no brick-and-mortar building yet, but the online version is the first step toward establishing a physical museum to house information about the state’s most noteworthy UFO cases. When you visit the museum, you will see eye-opening information about how UFOs, despite getting minimal media attention, have been a very important part of Texas history dating back to the 1800s. In fact, a UFO sighting by a Dallas-area farmer in 1878 is recognized as being the first instance of the word “saucer” being used to describe a UFO. The term “flying saucer” did not “officially” enter our vocabulary until 1947 – but there it was in Dallas-area newspapers way back in 1878. The Texas UFO Museum features exhibits about all the major UFO cases from 1878 to the present, including the Lubbock Lights, Stephenville, the Del Rio UFO Crash, the Levelland sightings, the Cash-Landrum case, and many, many more!
