Some of you may have gathered that I dislike being photographed. It doesn’t happen often, and I have seldom even seen a still from all the documentaries I have appeared on. Needless to say few have ever looked good. I had gained a terrible amount of weight from hypothyroidism some years ago, and though I have lost a lot and am almost back to my skinny self, I still dislike being photographed.
For 6 years I have not done TV. But with several books coming out, including my much anticipated sequel to the Triangle, I have agreed to do some. Four productions have contacted me. I will also have to undergo still photography. In the past, after two hours of such ordeals, a photographer admitted his desire to commit suicide. After 4 hours I tried to help him.
I was shown a still from a show I did in 2009, in which I looked pretty heavy. So I think it is time to finally come out of 5 year old pictures and peak at the world again. Hopefully it is not more shocking for you than for me.

Since 1990 Gian J. Quasar has investigated a broad range of mysterious subjects, from strange disappearances to serial murders, earning in that time the unique distinction of being likened to “the real life Kolchak.” However, he is much more at home with being called The Quester or Q Man. “He’s bloody eccentric, an historian with no qualifications who sticks his nose into affairs and gets results.” He is the author of several books, one of which inspired a Resolution in Congress.
