Posted: Sunday, April 2, 2000
The first issue of Close Encounters of the Brazilian Kind (CE-BK) has just been released and here's what you'll find in it:
>>>>>>>>>>>>>> The Football Player and the Werewolf <<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Imagine that you are dreaming about a creature, half man, half wolf, with razor sharp claws and teeth, thirsty for blood. Now imagine that the creature begins chasing you down a deserted street late one night, anxious to sink its claws and teeth into you, ready to rip you apart and devour you. A horrible nightmare, to say the least.
Some of us may have had just such a nightmare as described above. But, how many of us have actually experienced such a situation in real life and lived to tell the tale? Well . . . . as far as I know, one man has for sure: Wilson Dourado de Paula.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Close Encounter in Varginha <<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Varginha ("Var-ZJEEN-uh") is an active city with a population of about 120,000 people in the south of the state of Minas Gerais. It has quite a few industries but it is noted for being one of Brazil's leading coffee exporting centers, and has given itself the title of Coffee Capital of Brazil.
Today, Varginha is still noted for its coffee exportation, but now, as of January 20, 1996, it has also become home to one of the most incredible incidents to ever happen in the history of mankind: THE CAPTURE OF "ETs".
Close Encounter in Varginha is an illustrated black and white story by Elvis Vinicius of the early stages of the capture of ETs in the city of Varginha.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> An Interview with Vitório Pacaccini <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
On January 20, 1996, two sisters and a friend, Katia, Liliane and Valeria, observed, at close range, a strange looking humanoid creature in the small Brazilian city of Varginha, located in the state of Minas Gerais. Soon after, rumors began flying around Varginha that Brazilian authorities had captured the humanoid creature the girls had encountered, plus two others. From that moment on, the VARGINHA INCIDENT was born and has since become the most important UFO case in the history of Brazilian ufology, and certainly one of the most important ufology cases in the world.
Vitorio Pacaccini, a Brazilian ufologist from Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, has been involved with investigations into the Varginha case from its beginning. He is the author of the book Incidente em Varginha (Criaturas do Espaço no Sul de Minas) Incident in Varginha (Space Creatures in the South of Minas).
Vitorio Pacaccini gives an exclusive interview to CE-BK author Michael Wysmierski about his work and the Varginha Incident.
