Post-Keelian: Look Skylaireward

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 23rd, 2010

In the age we are entering, post-Keelian, there appears to be one new voice that is speaking for matters Fortean, crypto, and weird.  I recommend you trying out Skylaire Alfvegren.

Ms. Alfvegren knew John Keel when he was young and innocent, and so was she.  Maybe she still is but we don’t think so; she’s seen so much now.  The world has changed.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Well, Hi, there, little missy! Is her name of “Nordic” extraction, as in people from Sweden and/or Norway/Denmark/etcetera? Cause she sure reminds me of one of those legendary models from the North Countries. Think “Beer Commercials.” As in “Miller Lite.” Wish her many years of luck studying Fortean subjects.

  2. Melmoth responds:

    cryptidrus: hi, being a Norwegian I can confirm the name Alfvegren is Swedish in origin.

  3. Lesley responds:

    Skylaire innocent? Maybe back then, but I kind of doubt it. 🙂

    My goodness, I’m blushing! I didn’t even know Loren had posted this until tonight, as I was pondering a job I applied for and whether or not too many weird connections would come up in association with my name online. (Too late). Too cryptidsrus and Melmoth–the name Alfvegren literally translates as “elf clan” in Swedish. The family lore is that we’re descendants of the dark elves of old Scandinavia, who wouldn’t cooperate with the humans (unlike the light elves). Apparently we were banished to an island, but for some reason my uncle thinks we have a connection to Dalmatia. I’ve recently found the name common in Gotland (?), Sweden. I know there was a Swedish pop singer with the surname Alfvegren. Perhaps the Norwegian can shed some light?
