Gordon Lore began his professional writing/editing career as Vice President, Assistant Director, and Secretary-Treasurer of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP), then the world’s largest UFO organization headed by the late Major Donald E. Keyhoe (USMC, Ret.), in the mid-1960s. He was responsible for heading a large scientific network of subcommittees which lent its expertise toward solving one of the primary mysteries of the 20th century and beyond. He played a prominent role in the first-ever Congressional day-long hearing on UFOs in September 1968 and worked with the late Dr. James E. McDonald, Dr. J. Allen Hynek and many others on bringing the subject of UFOs to the scientific community and general public. 

Lore was an uncredited scientific advisor to the late director Stanley Kubrick on his seminal science fiction film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, in 1967. He is the senior author of Mysteries of the Skies: UFOs in Perspective (Prentice-Hall, Inc.), the first-ever book based entirely on the early history of UFOs and the sole author of Strange Effects From UFOs (NICAP). He also edited UFOs: A New Look, the UFO Investigator and the UFO Research Newsletter. He wrote and edited hundreds of published articles on one of the most mysterious scientific puzzles of all time. His latest book, The Earle Family of NEWFOUNDLAND and the Birth of a Canadian Atlantic Province, is now available as a Nook Book on the Barnes & Noble website. 

From 1971 to 1974, Gordon was a writer-editor in the public utilities field, becoming a White House and Congressional Senate/House Gallery correspondent. In 1975, he took on the position of Editor of The Rockwell News, Rockwell International’s employee newspaper, and wrote about numerous topics from the Apollo program, the Space Shuttle and nuclear energy. Since 1992, he has been a prominent writer-editor in the kidney disease and renal transplantation arena. He was the Editor and Founding Editor of several prominent print and online journals in the dialysis and nephrology community. His hundreds of published articles on this topic led to his being recognized as a nominee for the prestigious first Medal of Excellence (known as the Nobel Prize of the renal care field) from the American Association of Kidney Patients (AAKP). One of the articles he solicited resulted in the formation of a dialysis clinic in the only hospital in the country island of Belize, leading to his AAKP recognition.

Gordon Lore is the author, co-author, and editor of several UFO books and several thousand UFO and other articles (including spiritual phenomena, Eastern mysticism, kidney disease, and transplantation, psychology, nuclear energy, the Space Shuttle, public utilities, oystering on the Chesapeake Bay, history/genealogy and the early history of aviation) as well as numerous magazines, newsletters, and websites.

Gordon Lore

There have been thousands of reports of strange effects, both physical and psychological, from UFOs ranging from the most bizarre to the most well-documented cases from well-trained, competent observers. Even some of the most unbelievable reports are well documented and come from witnesses whose reputations for honesty and integrity are undisputed. This book details a cross-section of these puzzling cases, which include animal reactions, UFO witnesses who were physically and psychologically affected, electro-magnetic effects, and physical evidence of landings. Such reports are clearly global in nature. 
The author, in conjunction with the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP), has attempted to select the most thoroughly investigated and documented cases with opinions from many scientific and technical personnel in the hope that valuable clues may someday be unearthed. Since the UFO "heyday" of the 1960s, more and more scientists now believe that these cases should be thoroughly studied and could eventually provide some valuable insights into the question of whether or not the earth has been visited by intelligent, scientifically advanced extraterrestrial beings.




A UFO Researcher’s Odyssey

“Flying Saucers From Beyond the Earth: A UFO Researcher’s Odyssey is Gordon Lore’s 15-year odyssey through the 1960s and 1970s, the most formative research and investigation years of this constantly ongoing phenomenon. It is highlighted by his work with Major Donald E. Keyhoe, known as “Mr. UFO” because he wrote the first book and article on the subject in 1950, Richard H. Hall, and Dr. James E. McDonald, one of the premier UFO scientists during the 1960s whose tragic death in 1971 left an enduring gap in the early history of UFO research and investigation.

This new book gives the reader both personal and scientific insights into many perplexing flying saucer sightings and the author’s investigation and research highlighting their importance. The author has also worked with such respected UFO researchers and scientists as Dr. Jacques Vallee, Dr. J. Allen Hynek, Francis Ridge (honcho of the excellent NICAP website), Barry Greenwood, Jan Aldrich, Raymond Fowler, Stanton Friedman, Paul Cerny and many others.

The book also highlights the author’s own sightings and personal investigations of prominent UFO sightings in several states and his leading the NICAP subcommittee work of a number of prominent investigators. He can also be seen sitting with Major Donald E. Keyhoe and Richard Hall at a conference table at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., in 1968 in a segment of NASA’s Unexplained Files—Secret Aliens TV show.”



Gordon Lore, Harold Denault

The decade of the 1960s was a significant turning point in the history of the UFO phenomenon. For the first time, scientists, engineers, astronomers, military officers, policemen, pilots and the general public began taking the many Flying Saucer reports seriously. In 1965, Gordon Lore joined the staff of the world’s largest UFO organization, the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP), headquartered in Washington, DC, and headed by Major Donald E. Keyhoe (USMC, Ret.), author of the book on the subject in 1950 entitled Flying Saucers Are Real. Lore became the Assistant Director and, later, Vice President and Secretary-Treasurer of NICAP. 
He led a comprehensive scientific network of dedicated UFOlogists and played a significant role in the first and, so far, only day-long Congressional investigation into the flying saucer phenomenon. He also worked with the infamous Condon Committee at the University of Colorado and was the senior author of Mysteries of the Skies: UFOs in Perspective, published in 1968 by Prentice-Hall, Inc., the first book ever on the early history of UFOs prior to 1947 (see above). The book received a number of excellent-to-good editorial reviews (see below) and has been cited in several hundred UFO books.
Gordon was also the chief researcher/writer on Strange Effects From UFOs, one of the first books ever to discuss occupant reports and other strange anomalies, including landing reports, electromagnetic interference, physical evidence, and ground radiation effects. He also was one of the editors of the NICAP publication, UFOs: A New Look. In 1970, he published an article in SAGAmagazine about the great airship mystery of 1896-1897. Lore worked with such renown scientists and researchers in the UFO field as Dr. J. Allen Hynek and Dr. Jacques Vallee. He was also close friend and colleague of Dr. James E. McDonald, the late head of the Atmospheric Physics Department at the University of Arizona, who nearly single-handedly persuaded a large cadre of fellow scientists and Congressional leaders that there should be an ongoing serious study of UFOs.
