"I just received news from Preston's friend, Clark, that Preston Nichols passed away this morning at 4am (today) October 5, 2018. He had suffered a heart attack in July followed by a stroke in September. The news of Preston's passage was also confirmed by another phone call. It is not known if there will be a conventional funeral. His body has reportedly been taken to a mortician, but I have no further information at this time.
"Preston is thanked for all the work he did to investigate the Montauk Project and bring issues to light that other would not look at. He always said his purpose was to get humanity through to a certain point.
"It is my hope that Preston will be able to do more from his new place in the universe."
Preston B. Nichols, of course, was the co-author (with Peter Moon) of such classic cryptoscatological books as THE MONTAUK PROJECT: EXPERIMENTS IN TIME, MONTAUK REVISITED: ADVENTURES IN SYNCHRONICITY, and PYRAMIDS OF MONTAUK: EXPLORATIONS IN CONSCIOUSNESS. As many others have noted, these three books are without a doubt the main source material for the hit television show STRANGER THINGS. I mentioned the connections between Nichols and Moon's work and the STRANGER THINGS Netflix series in my 11-8-17 post, "Stranger Things and The Montauk Project."

To hear Preston Nichols discuss his unorthodox experiences in his own words, I suggest listening to his May 27, 1994 appearance on COAST TO COAST AM WITH ART BELL....
