Curt Collins

Curtis L. Collins is the author behind Blue Blurry Lines, the website focused on the UFO mystery, as well as its legends and hoaxes. After a career in retail management Curt began writing about UFOs, with a special interest in re-investigating the paradoxical 1980 Texas Cash-Landrum case. 

In 2015 Curt was on the investigative team, the Roswell Slides Research Group, that exposed the BeWitness alien photo fiasco. More recently, he launched The Saucers That Time Forgot  with Claude Falkstrom, focused on unearthing “tales that UFO history has overlooked, or would rather forget.” Curt lives in the southern United States, near Jackson, Mississippi.

Fortean Times Aug. 1, 2018, Peter Brookesmith, The UFO Files:
"Speaking of blogs: Curt Collins, who's made a speciality of burrowing into the (in)famous Cash-Landrum affair, now has another one on the go called 'The Saucers That Time Forgot'. Definitely worth a gander for stuff you've never heard of and stuff that should often make you laugh."

Fortean Times Apr 1, 2017, Peter Brookesmith’s column The UFO Files, “Flying Saucery” (An article covering the attack on UFO researchers' privacy rights).
"For those short of time, I commend Curt Collins's summary of the byzantine background to the case on his excellent website..." 

Fortean Times Oct. 1, 2017, Eric Hoffman, Review of UFOs: Reframing the Debate:
"Among the essays that merit close attention are Curt Collins's thoroughly readable and engaging minute-by-minute recounting of the 'Roswell slides' debacle..."

Magonia Review July 3, 2017, Peter Rogerson,  Review of UFOs: Reframing the Debate:
"The contributors fall into two broad categories; those such as veteran Canadian ufologist Chris Rutkowski along with Micah Hanks, Jack Brewer and Curt Collins who look to a 'scientific ufology', stripped of its numerous cultural accretions. Hanks, for example, refers back to Allan Hendry’s UFO Handbook (1979). It is an approach typified the painstaking demolition of alleged slides of the alleged Roswell alien by Curt Collins. The central proposition is that if ufology could only be cleared of cultists, or more politely, a quasi-religious world view, then proper scientists would take an interest in the subject."
