The following is the official cancellation of the conference at Les Repas Ufologiques in Paris. This is one of two where I was to speak, but this was suppose to be the sponsor of the airline ticket.
Instead, I have now committed to be (but not speak) at the cryptozoological exposition in Texas:
So, Paris, France’s loss is Paris, Texas’ nearby gain.
I was looking forward to delivering to my French colleagues a talk that had morphed into “Anthropology of Anthropomorphic Aliens and Cryptic Cryptids,” as found in the following vintage (but obviously over-stylized African) Fred Press piece:

Anyway, here’s the Paris announcement, in French and English:
NOUS AVONS LE REGRET DE VOUS ANNONCER QUE LES ORGANISATEURS ONT DÉCIDÉS
D’ANNULER LA SOIRÉE PRÉVUE AVEC LE CRYPTOZOOLOGUE AMÉRICAIN
LE 2 OCTOBRE 2012
La raison en est toute simple, après trois mois, seulement une vingtaine
de personnes ont réservées. L’engagement financier étant tout de même
important, les organisateurs ne souhaitent pas prendre le risque. Les
quelques personnes qui ont réservées seront immédiatement remboursées.
Nous sommes désolés pour cette annonce, mais cela démontre qu’il n’est
pas aussi facile que cela de nos jours d’organiser quelque chose.
The robotic translation of this is:
WE ARE SORRY TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE ORGANIZERS HAVE DECIDED
CANCEL THE EVENING WITH THE AMERICAN CRYPTOZOOLOGUE
OCTOBER 2, 2012
The reason is simple, after three months, only 20
people have reserved. The financial commitment being the same
importantly, the organizers do not wish to take the risk. The
Some people who have reserved will be immediately refunded.
We are sorry for this announcement, but it shows that it is
not as easy as this today to organize something.
