In "The Chaos Conundrum," historian Aaron John Gulyas examines how the paranormal has intersected and influenced our culture in myriad ways, from the conspiracy beliefs of William Cooper and Exopolitics to the challenge that the stories of Gray Barker presented to our concept of self and time. He looks at the maelstrom of personalities, agendas, impressions, data, confusion, and contradictions that can be found in the world of the weird, and demonstrates how they have become an integral part of our lives, whether in the form of flying saucers, hauntings, religious revelations, psychic abilities, or dozens of other guises. Gulyas delves into the stories of the people who have attempted to create order out of the chaos. Along the way he recounts his own journey from enthusiastic believer in the "shadow government" and their underground bases to jaded academic skeptic, and then finally to someone who thinks there might just be something to the paranormal after all... but not what we have been led to expect or believe!
"A compelling and very personal look at the impact the paranormal has had on the way we view ourselves and the world in which we live."
- Paul Kimball, author of "The Other Side of Truth"

"A major contribution to paranormal research and observation."
- Nick Redfern, author of "Final Events" and "Contactees"

About the Author:

Aaron John Gulyas is the author of many history education and scholarly popular culture resources, as well as the 2013 books "Extraterrestrials and the American Zeitgeist: Alien Contact Tales since the 1950s" and "In Fandom’s Shadow: Being a Doctor Who Fan from the 1990s to Today." He also contributed a chapter to "Doctor Who in Time and Space" and wrote the foreword to "Posthuman Blues, Vol. I" by Mac Tonnies.

Gulyas received his BA in History from Hanover College in 1998, and an MA in United States History from Indiana University-Indianapolis in 2003. He worked in state government, publishing, the technology field and finally teaching, landing at Mott Community College, where he has taught since 2006. He has presented numerous scholarly papers at conferences for organizations like the American Culture Association, the Popular Culture Association, the Educational Technology Organization of Michigan, and others. A card-carrying netizen, he maintains a website called History, Teaching and the Strange at ajgulyas.com, and is on Twitter as @firkon, where he can often be found pontificating on which version of "Doctor Who" is the best.

Gulyas lives near Flint, Michigan, with his wife and son.
