Another angle of skepticism: Does Stanley A. Fulham even exist?
 
Regarding this wacky new book titled Challenges of Change, allegedly written by a retired NORAD officer named Stanley A. Fulham, can anyone find evidence that there ever actually was a retired NORAD officer by that name?

I became a little suspicious when I found an English football team named Accrington Stanley and another that competes against it named Fulham. Hmm...

Man, follow that link to the author site and look at the rear cover of the book. That is great.

Of the three endorsements, one is from a university professor....of creative writing. All of them use the word "interesting" to describe the book. :)

The only Stanley A. Fulham I google in the Air Force (except in relation to this book) was born in 1923 in Canada and was in the Royal Canadian Air Force, from which he retired in 1970. He wrote a book called The Rugged Trail published in 2000, which looks (judging from its cover) to have a religious slant.

Isn't he the guy hanging out with Kilgore Trout?

Challenges of Change was advertised in the January 2004 MUFON UFO Journal, page 24. Apparently touched on a variety of woo topics.

ETA: According to the February 11, 2004, Manitoban, the Stanley A. Fulham who wrote Challenges of Change is the same Canadian who wrote The Rugged Trail and was a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force. The Manitoban review mentions his NORAD service; it also says the book was 190 pages. There's an interview with him mentioning his NORAD service at jerrypippin.com/UFO_Files_grant_cameron.htm

I'm pretty sure the RCAF is involved in NORAD.

I didn't mean to imply that it wasn't. I bolded Royal Canadian because several sites I googled (primarily spanish) said Fulham was in the U.S. Air Force. Sorry for the imprecision.
