Following his retirement from journalism, Wallace became a noted resident of Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, where he lived in a self-designed cabin and conducted experiments in "sublimated telepathy," whereby he believed he had contacted beings from other worlds (including "Mars, the moons of Jupiter and Uranus, [...] Zingomar (a planet of the star Altair), [and] planets near the Pleiades star cluster")[1] and spirits of the departed dead.
