Features

30 The Sky is Alive (Cover Story)
The number and variety of UFO reports have long puzzled experts. Scott Deschaine asks whether the answer could be as simple, yet wondrous, as life itself. Are many UFOs actually atmospheric creatures?

36 Haunted by Durrell's Dreams
In the year of Lawrence Durrell's centenary, Paul Devereux retraces the writer's footsteps to two of the key healing sites of the ancient Mediterranean world and asks whether the dreams of those long since dead can take on a life of their own and linger into the present.

40 Tourists in Paradise
Ted Harrison recounts the story of Colton Burpo, the boy who went to Heaven, and considers the history of other accounts of visits to the afterlife.
