Truth Seekers Review

Truth Seekers Review was a magazine that initially came out of Wales in the early ‘90s. It was concerned with paranormal phenomena. One of its editors was Matthew Williams from Ton Pentre. A former civil servant, Williams became interested in UFOs after spotting one on the side of the Bwlch mountain near his home while driving to work. He estimated that it was about 300ft high, though his passenger completely failed to notice it. Williams avidly began reading books on UFOs and in his spare time he became an investigator of paranormal activity. He got into the whole Roswell incident thing and even travelled to the Nevada desert to check out Area 51 – the US government’s top secret airbase. Williams interviewed UFO spotters and people who claimed to have been abducted by aliens. He started writing reports on his findings and pretty soon became an acknowledged expert in the field, much in demand by the media and on the esoteric lecture circuit. He also went around the UK visiting military bunkers. Truth Seekers Review sold for £1.70.
