The BOOK, BLOG, And MagazIne Side Of The C Influence

Yes, I know, it's been pathetic how TCI has been treated. But, the good news is - the archive is FREE - and it has a ton of content to stimulate your mind with some of the best writers on the internet when it comes to anomalous phenomena. 

Indeed, to achieve such levels of thought and writing takes an internal energy one might or might not have at a given interval - we, the bloggers of TCI may have been lucky to produce this much good content in our group effort. Many writers/bloggers of such material often fade in and out of producing content or even at relating the anomalous events that happen to others. Speaking of the `second attention' is draining.

Indeed, I am no longer in contact with all the bloggers who are/were contributors to this blog - only some of them. Can TCI come back in some manner? Time will tell.

Now, all that said, bloggers are figuring out ways to make sure that their best material does not fade away from the digital world. Indeed, they are finding a better method to bring such digital anomaly writing to a wider public - Kindle Books or E Books of any kind - and offering ones blog on Amazon. And, multiple writers and contributors of The C Influence are doing just that - find some of those offerings below:
For Example - Erich Kuersten offers his blog on Kindle for 99 cents a month: Acidemic Film Journal which he describes as:

Exploring cinema from today, the psychedelic 1970s, and pre-code 1930s in a style that dissolves academic theory, Jungian archetypal psychology, gonzo memoir/journalism, and pop culture shoot from the hip kinetics into one potent brew.

Kindle blogs are fully downloaded onto your Kindle so you can read them even when you're not wirelessly connected. And unlike RSS readers which often only provide headlines, blogs on Kindle give you full text content and images, and are updated wirelessly throughout the day.

Acidemic film journal is not for tenderfooted tire kickers. It is for those who want more from a review than passive affirmation or vapid water cooler sound bites. Now that everyone and their cousin Joey has a film blog, it is imperative to be discerning if you value your position as a qualified cinephile. Erich does not take the easy route when it comes to blogging. His reviews have the uncompromising swagger and fire of an experienced pen fueled by a passion for the subject matter. Too often film blogs reek of artistic frustration and are fraught with distracting tangents and sophomoric stabs at theory. Erich delves beyond the narrative and into Jungian/Lacanian/Neitzschean/Satrean anthro-socio-political deconstructionism blended seamlessly into anecdotal nostalgia of a 70's disaffected youth & his subsequent demon battle lore. Many of his reviews are of obscure films because Acidemic is about the art, not the revenue. Often Erich's writing surpasses the quality of the film, which is kinda weird. To quote one of Erich's latest rants, "He expects no reward or condemnation, he doesn't think ahead or crave validation - he's just a dancer in the Shiva flame."
Lon Strickler also offers his blog Phantoms And Monsters too:

It's 99 Cents A Month too. And, here's what one reviewer said:

5.0 out of 5 stars Best value out there!!! October 2, 2011
By far Phantoms and Monsters is the best value out there. Everyday Lon has numerous articles and stories to fill your day. I've subscribed to other blogs and would only get an update every month or so. I have not been updated daily maybe 4 times and each time Lon has posted that there will be no updates. Thanks Lon for the great work you do.
Lon has also just uploaded his first Kindle Book called `Cryptid Encounters' too:
Lon describes the book as such:

Book Description

 September 25, 2012
A collection of personal cryptid encounter reports submitted by regular people who felt compelled to find answers about their unexplained experience. I keep an open mind when reading and discussing witness accounts since I truly understand how they feel...because few people believed my extraordinary encounter either.

And, Erich Kuersten, Bruce Duensing and Myself (Rick Phillips) - all had chapters in the below book released by Robert Cheatham in 2012 on Amazon. A book by the title `Materialization & Manifestation' (subtitle) `UFO Drag Queen'

I will be featuring my Kindle books in an upcoming post.
And, it's not all 2012 stuff - Lesley Gunter and Regan Lee had Chapters in the same issue of the UFO Magazine below:
I see that Erich has something in the draft phase in the dashboard - and I will be posting soon with all my new Kindle books too - perhaps a comeback of sorts has started.
