Michael Lindemann is a futurist, journalist and novelist. He is perhaps best known for his research and publishing in the UFO field, notably as founding editor of CNI News, the twice-monthly online news journal devoted to UFO phenomena and reports of alien contact, published from March 1995 to May 2000. Concurrently, starting in December 1998, he also published Global Situation Report, a twice-monthly online journal about technological, environmental and political trends shaping the human future.
In June 2000, Michael became Senior Editor for Future Studies at One Cosmos Network, the San Francisco-based media company founded by Joseph Firmage. With the untimely demise of that project in early 2001, Michael decided to exercise a long-held dream and began writing his first novel. Twenty-seven months later, the finished product of that effort is EXCELSIOR, a political-science fiction thriller just published by Michael's own company, Chancellor Publishing.
Writer and futurist Michael Lindemann postulated on what life might be like in the year 2035. His novel Excelsior which has just been published under his pen name Michael Paul, explores a variety of future developments which Lindemann based on geopolitical trends and realistic extrapolations.
