What did they see and why were they under the impression this being was not of this world? (An Author’s Encounter With A Not-Of-This-World Entity) *** Christopher Slaughterford was seemingly a completely ordinary young Englishman – but he has earned an unenviable place in the legal books. (T
he Trials of Christopher Slaughterford) *** For Allen Taylor, January 15, 1919 was just another day on his farm near Prescott, Iowa.
