    Wilbert B Smith - 35 rare "Topside" newsletters now online (PDFs)

    Wilbert B Smith (of Canada's Project Magnet) was associated with a UFO group in Canada called the "Ottawa New Sciences Club". That group published the "Topside" newsletter.

    Issues of “Topside” are pretty difficult to obtain so I was very pleased when, a few months ago, Canadian researcher Nikoloas Balaskas very kindly sent me scans of 12 issues of Topside. The AFU in Sweden has now kindly currently scanned quite a few further issues of this publication. Veteran American ufologist Barry Greenwood has helpfully scanned several issues to fill in the remaining gaps. So, issues 1 to 35 are now freely available online.

    More specific credits for the various scans are given below.

    The front covers of this publication expressly indicated that material can be copied provided acknowledgement is given. (The "Ottawa New Sciences Club" dissolved long ago).

    The collection can be downloaded with a single click during the next week from this temporary link:

    After the next week, or if you only want a specific issue, they can also be found longer-term on the AFU’s website at this link:
