A certified “crackpot historian” and 23rd degree Discordian, Adam Gorightly has been chronicling fringe culture in an illuminating manner for over two decades. An active contributor to the ‘zine revolution of the late ’80s and early ’90s, Adam’s byline was a familiar sight in many cutting-edge mags. His articles have appeared in numerous publications such as The Excluded Middle, UFO Magazine, Paranoia, SteamShovel Press, and FourTwoFour, the largest soccer magazine in Great Britain.
Adam has the following books to his credit: The Shadow Over Santa Susana: Black Magic, Mind Control and the Manson Family Mythos; The Prankster and the Conspiracy: The Story of Kerry Thornley and How He Met Oswald and Inspired the Counterculture; Death Cults; The Beast of Adam Gorightly: Collected Rantings 1992–2004 and James Shelby Downard’s Mystical War.

Adam has lectured across the US. His most recent rant, “Were the UFO Contactees Ritual Magicians?” was presented at The Retro UFO Space Convention in April 2006; The Roswell 60th Anniversary Festival in July 2007 and The League Of Western Fortean Intermediatists Mini-Con in October 2008 in Los Angeles.
Says Erskine Payton of Erskine Overnight: “Adam offers a unique take on virtually every conspiracy of our time. There are few answers to Adam’s rants, but they pose questions only the brave or seriously warped would dare ponder.”
