Trivia Challenge

Paranormal Puzzlers

This is the latest in ATPM’s series of Trivia Challenges. Answers to this month’s Trivia Challenge will be found in the next issue of ATPM. If you have any suggestions for future Trivia Challenges, or wish to comment about almost anything, please e-mail me at

I’d like to congratulate last month’s Trivia Challenge winners: First Place—Brian Ehni, from Tennessee; and Second Place—Jason Chong, from Singapore. Your prizes are on the way!

In conjunction with my review of “The X-Files Trivia Challenge 1.5,” I thought I would give you a sample of some of the questions you might encounter. So slip into something mysterious, keep an eye to the sky for aliens, and take part in:
