UFO Magazine (UK)

UFO Magazine was a British magazine devoted to the subject of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and extraterrestrial life. It was founded in 1981 by brothers Graham and Mark Birdsall of Leeds, Yorkshire.[1] The magazine was one of the success stories of ufology, with an international reputation for quality and a peak circulation of 35,000.[1][2]

Graham Birdsall died from a brain haemorrhage on 19 September 2003. He left behind his wife Christine, daughters Helen and Louise, granddaughter Katy, brother Mark and son-in-law Russel.[3] [4] The editor's job was taken over for a few months by Graham's son-in-law Russel Callaghan, but UFO Magazine eventually ceased publication in March 2004.[1]

The void left by UFO Magazine has been filled to some extent by the newly produced UFO Data magazine referred to as the 'UFO Data Report'[5] and Gary Heseltine's UFO Monthly Magazine.[6]
