Amazon.com When it comes to UFOs, most scientists prefer to just say "no." Tackling the issue without damaging his credibility, astronomer William A. Alschuler wrote The Science of UFOs to explore how popular beliefs about aliens and spacecraft intersect with our current understanding of physics and biology. Though guaranteed to enrage extremists on both sides of the belief spectrum, he is careful to be fair to witness and investigator alike. The text is engaging, even fun, as Alschuler dives head-first into geek-out discussions of wormholes, antigravity effects, and alien DNA. He has this to say about Star Trek-style warp-drive ships: A watcher in the ship's wake would likely see the sky around the ship waver like a desert mirage as the ship accelerated away. If it happened at night or in space, the stars in the sky might appear to draw in around the ship, and as the stars crowded together this area might for a time look like a bright ring of sky. As the ship became more distant, this luminous doughnut would shrink in radius. Drawing plenty of analogies from popular science fiction, Alschuler explains his ideas clearly and forcefully. Though his conclusion--that we probably haven't been visited by extraterrestrials traveling in physical interstellar craft--is neither surprising nor especially satisfying, the process he uses to reach it is challenging, imaginative, and open-minded. These are good scientific values, well worth absorption by both the uncritical believers and the calcified skeptics of the world. --Rob Lightner From Publishers Weekly Have aliens visited Earth? Did the government conspire to cover up a UFO crash at Roswell, N.Mex.? Astronomer Alschuler (UFOs and Aliens)Awhile allowing for the possible existence of life elsewhere in our galaxyAremains skeptical that aliens have touched down on Earth. With a child's enthusiasm for the fantastic and a scientist's eye for detail, the author examines the science of alien technologies reported by eyewitnesses and featured in various media. Several reports, for example, suggest that... read more

You know the government's opinion of UFOs: They're all fakes, mistakes, or swamp gas. But imagine what it might be like if the government took ETs seriously.

C.D.B. Bryan's Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind--an engrossing work written for those skeptical about extraterrestrial visitors--is a compilation of testimonials and interviews about alien abductions. Bryan's sources, interviewed at a five-day academic conference held at M.I.T., include psychiatrists, researchers, science writers, "ufologists," and abductees, including John Mack, a professor of psychiatry at Harvard and author of Abduction: Human Encounters with Aliens. In addition, Close Encounters includes transcripts from hypnotherapy sessions with self-described "abductees." Bryan, journalist and author of Friendly Fire (1976), blends a reporter's objectivity with great compassion for the traumatized victims of these mysterious and horrific violations. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly In his popular UFO books, Communion and Transformation , Whitley Strieber noted his uncertainty whether the "visitors" who allegedly abducted him were extraterrestrials, fairies or something else. Conroy, a freelance journalist, argues that we should take seriously Strieber's claim that alien entities are catalysts to a higher consciousness. In this rambling, overwritten yet interesting study, he pokes around in Strieber's childhood to establish credibility, analyzes his horror fiction and assesses Strieber's UFO experiences in terms of the Jungian unconscious, fairy lore and other abduction cases in which symbolic imagery figured prominently. He also examines the mixed reception accorded to Communion both by the mainstream media and within the UFO community. In an epilogue, Conroy relates his own "visitorlike" experiences. Readers who lean toward a nuts-and-bolts explanation of UFOs as extraterrestrial craft will probably feel let down. Photos.

Amazon.com Sometimes pop culture produces its best comedies by accident--witness the Hula-Hoop craze, roller disco, and now the alien abduction phenomenon. In this hilarious "expos?" David Jacobs reveals the secret agenda that compels aliens to abduct human men and women. Some of the best material is in his section on research methods, where he decries the use of hypnotism by other alien-abduction specialists, because it can produce false memories; he then goes on to explain that most of his data comes from hypnotically induced recollections. The stories he relates from the various abductees he has worked with are all titillatingly sexual, and Jacobs writes that this consistency proves not that people are prone to sexual fantasies, but that the aliens are using humans for their breeding program. Filled with delightful howlers of this sort, The Threat is a laugh riot from beginning to end. Toss out your Dave Barry books and move up to the real thing. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

He has interviewed, mostly under hypnosis, hundreds of people who say they have been abducted by aliens, and he thinks he's figured out why they are here--and it's not Whitley Strieber's mystical, New Age vision of cosmic harmony.

From School Library Journal YA-While keeping most references to UFOs within the last 50 years, the authors mention unusual sightings as far back as the time of the caveman. These ties to the earliest days of humans become important later on. Incidents and explanations are painstakingly detailed, as Devereux goes to great lengths to prove his logical answers, to present the scientific reasons for the final analysis of the situation, and to make certain that both sides of the story are told. While all of this may be extremely important to serious ufologists, for casual readers it may become overwhelming in some sections. The details prove to be essential to their conclusions, however, as Devereux and then Brookesmith deliver their theories of UFOs based on the years of research they and others have conducted on the subject. The conclusion they reach appears to be a theory not commonly held by the general public and opens up another topic for discussion in this controversial field. For young adults with a deep interest in the subject and with good reading and comprehension skills, this book provides a historical overview and an intriguing look into earth science, space, and the unknown.

Paperback Random House Childrens Pub

From School Library Journal Grade 6-10-A wealth of UFO sighting reports from ancient Egypt to China in 2001 gives this work an uncommon breadth and depth of coverage. As is typical, the bulk of the reported alien encounters comes from the United States, but a generous sampling comes from many different countries, including Israel, Switzerland, New Guinea, France, and Cuba. Chapters are arranged in a rough chronological order. Many charts, sidebars, pencil sketches, and a few photographs add visual interest and supplemental information in the narrative: comparisons between typical alien encounters and folklore, brief descriptions of additional sightings, background information on assorted "alien experts," and definitions of terms used in ufology, etc. A "man in black" icon in the margin indicates especially significant or well-documented incidents. Contact information for several UFO organizations and descriptions of their areas of activity are provided after a section on how to observe and record a UFO encounter. The reading list, divided by general subject area, is small but highly selective and well annotated. The tone of this book is more neutral than Alan Baker's The Encyclopedia of Alien Encounters (Facts On File, 2000). Skeptics' ideas and UFO believers' opinions are given fair and balanced consideration. On the whole, this is a fine, up-to-date summary of the many aspects of a compelling subject. Ann G. Brouse, Steele Memorial Library, Elmira, NY Copyright 2001 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Book Description In this extraordinary work, psychologist Dr. Edith Fiore discloses fourteen case studies of men and women who, while under hypnosis, have recalled being abducted by a UFO. Some remember joy and happiness; others relive anxiety and terror. Most of these "contactees" had been taken against their will, communicated with telepathically, and examined thoroughly -- sometimes painfully. And while most had no conscious awareness of the events, they shared a host of troubling "symptoms," including an inability to account for periods of time, persistent nightmares about UFOs, sleep disorders, unexplained healing of ailments, and reactions of fear and anxiety at the mention of UFOs. If you have experienced similar phenomena, ENCOUNTERS can show you how you can use self-hypnosis to find out if you, too, have been contacted or abducted. It also provides information for anyone who would like additional assistance from professional hypnotists or experienced UFO investigators. Compelling and liberating, ENCOUNTERS will show you that you are not alone. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Library Journal This is Fowler's third, and perhaps strangest, book about Betty Andreasson (now Mrs. Robert Luca). There is a little bit of everything here--out-of-body/near-death experiences, Christian spirituality, and ancient astronauts. By way of hypnotic regression, Luca was able to provide details about her numerous abductions, and her drawings, included in this book, clarify her verbal descriptions of alien machinery and enigmatic activities. The "secret design" behind alien abductions, says Luca, is a long-term genetics program undertaken by the aliens to prolong and improve life on the Earth. Fowler's objectivity in reporting these amazing experiences is called into question with his recent "discovery" of his own, up to now repressed, abduction experiences.

Hardcover HarperCollins

From Library Journal Grof ( The Stormy Search for Self , LJ 4/1/90) offers this New Age book which purports to unravel the complexities of the human mind through the assessment of observations of "non-ordinary" states of consciousness (LSD-induced, etc.). The mind, according to Grof, is essentially "holotropic," that is, like a hologram wherein the whole can be reconstructed from a tiny part. The book's first part analyzes memories of life in the womb and the painful process of birth. This is largely a rehash of Grof's Realms of the Human Unconscious ( LJ 7/75, o.p.). The rest of the book is given to a discussion of our "infinite transpersonal consciousness," wherein we can transcend not only the time-space continuum but even visit other dimensions and parallel universes. Grof purports to be scientific--the word appears often throughout the book--but he is surprisingly short on validation. He accepts without question the spoon bending of Uri Geller and the mental photography of Ted Serios. This book is suitable for the New Age shelf if you don't have the author's earlier treatment. - Dave Summers, Holly Twp. Lib., Mich. Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Publishers Weekly Hopkins, who uses hypnotism in interviewing UFO abduction claimants, argued in his first book, Missing Time, that UFO aliens had inserted implant devices in several children. Here, after researching 125 supposed abductions, he reports on "the apparent interbreeding of an alien species with our own." During hypnotic sessions, men have told of being raped by alien females and women have related experiences interpreted by Hopkins as ova-retrieval and artificial insemination. The book's key case involves Kathie Davis, a 28-year-old Indianapolis mother who described under hypnosis multiple abductions and gynecological operations, and the investigation here extends to the UFO experiences of her children, relatives and friends. Hopkins's disarming manner as he leads the reader through the steps of his research adds credibility to the science-fictional aspects of this account.

Ingram Here is the documented study of 19 people who were not and still are not UFO "believers"--but who all share a tiny unexplainable scar on their bodies, who share a gap of "missing time" and who under hypnosis remember the same utterly terrifying alien faces. Reissue. Book Description The arrival of extraterrestrial visitors is one of the most momentous events of our time. In Intruders Budd Hopkins explored the shocking truth about the contact between earthling and alien: that human beings are temporarily abducted and taken aboard UFOs. But Hopkins could not have told the stories of those victims without first having discovered the one experience common to all who report alien encounters -- the phenomenon known as "missing time." Missing time tells how the people who have experienced abductions retained no memory of them -- all traces of the trauma were effectively erased from their memory. Yet, under hypnosis, many abductees were able to recall in vivid, convincing detail, the harrowing experiments that left mysterious scars on their bodies, the eerie interiors of UFOs where they were held captive, and the astonishing faces of their alien hosts. The stories of seven victims of these otherworldly intruders are told her -- in detail at once dispassionate and dramatic, fully supported by scientific documentation. They are stories that could belong to anyone: your neighbors, your loved ones, even you.

Hardcover Pocket Books

From Publishers Weekly It is 3 a.m. on November 30, 1989. On the Lower East Side of Manhattan, a motorcade carrying international diplomats, including a U.N. representative of the highest standing, stalls out and comes to a halt beneath the FDR Drive. An enormous reddish-orange UFO looms above an apartment building, where a pretty housewife is seen by the members of the motorcade to float out of a 12th-story window, accompanied by three ugly gray aliens, and into the spaceship. Because those involved, including the woman ("Linda Cortile"), the U.N. diplomat and his security men (probably "CIA or NSA"), eventually read Hopkins's bestselling last book, Intruders, they all end up contacting him. One of the security men becomes completely unhinged and is either assassinated or consigned to the back wards of a government insane asylum. He gets off easy. The other G-man falls in love with "Linda," only to discover that he has been trysting with her since the age of 10 under alien auspices. Hopkins contends that the "Brooklyn Bridge incident" is the most-witnessed UFO abduction of all time. Because he has changed the names of all the participants?allegedly to spare them ridicule?little in his text can be checked. In any case, according to Hopkins, "outing" abductees is done only by "vicious debunkers" who have "rigid belief systems." Even so, the author himself does everything but write the words "Perez de Cuellar" in describing the high-echelon U.N. diplomat with the tinted glasses and Spanish accent. Hopkins isn't the storyteller that Whitley Strieber is, but his last book rode high on the bestseller lists, and there's a creepy, nightmarish quality to his new one that may ensure it the same fate. Meanwhile, believers will believe and skeptics will remain skeptical. Photos not seen by PW. Author tour. Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Booklist The long-awaited investigative report by artist and veteran UFO researcher Budd Hopkins (Missing Time, 1982; Intruders, 1987) details a remarkable abduction that took place in downtown Manhattan early on the morning of November 30, 1989.

From Kirkus Reviews Next time you glance at your watch and find a few minutes missing, better rush to your local hypnotist--you, too, might have been unwittingly kidnapped by a UFO. So Jacobs seems to suggest, estimating that over a million Americans have been abducted in recent years. ``We have been invaded,'' he proclaims, warning that ``the aliens have powers and technology greatly in advance of ours.'' Odd words, coming from a professor of history at Temple Univ., and a sign of the extreme oddity of the phenomenon, which Jacobs explores through extensive structural analysis. Each stage of a typical abduction, including the most sensational--the sexual encounters and reproductive experiments found in nearly all cases--are scrutinized through firsthand transcripts of hypnotic-regression interviews with more than 60 victims. The conclusion? That aliens are impregnating earth women in order to create quasi-human ``hybrids'' for some unknown purpose. The mind reels, but the sober, obviously terrified abductees make a strong case for the veracity of their experience. Jacobs's own presentation is a mixed blessing: His scholarship is punctilious, but he reveals the zeal of the converted in his debunking, after slight analysis, of all earth-bound explanations for UFO abductions (hysterical contagion, psychogenic fugue states, temporal-lobe dysfunction, and the like). By bringing solid scholarship to the pioneering efforts of Bud Hopkins and the hot prose of Whitley Strieber, this marks the next stage in UFO abduction research--and is just as likely to fly off the supermarket bookracks. -- Copyright ?1992, Kirkus Associates, LP.

From Publishers Weekly Is the truth out there? If so, where should we look? In this accessible academic collection, longtime UFO researcher Jacobs (The Threat), a professor of history at Temple University, assembles nine writers and scholars from several disciplines to report on the state of the UFO field. Most of the contributors seek either to bolster reports of alien landings or to establish ufology as a serious scholarly topic. Psychologist Stuart Apelle, who edits the Journal of UFO Studies, sums up previous academic studies of UFOs, then calls for moreAa call echoed by (among others) prolific UFO writer Budd Hopkins (Missing Time). McGill University psychologist Don Donderi argues that the scientific method is ill equipped to digest UFOsAlawyers, using legal standards of evidence, would handle them better, he believes, and "military intelligence analysts... have probably already drawn the proper conclusions." Michael Swords (a former Journal editor) shows how 1950s and '60s Pentagon brass deliberately fostered public skepticism. Folklorist Thomas Bullard's superb, lengthy essay concentrates not on whether there are aliens, but on what humans believe about them: contemporary "extraterrestrials," premodern European faeries and Seneca (Indian) visionary experiences are more alike than we might think. Ontario neuroscientist Michael Persinger suggests one possible reason why: certain electrical misfires in the brain, his lab's research suggests, can create strong impressions of "humanoid" visitors. Persinger's careful essay will fascinate not just the UFO-curious, but anyone with an interest in brain, mind, memory and belief. Despite its measured tone and many footnotes, the rest of the volume, however, seems largely aimed at readers who want to believe. (Sept.) Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Kirkus Reviews The anxieties of an academic outgroup form the subtext of this collection of 11 essays by UFO and abduction researchers from both inside and outside he academy.Editor Jacobs (The Treat, 1998, etc.) and his colleagues want the scientific and intellectual establishment to take reports of unidentified flying objects and tales of earthlings kidnapped by extraterrestrials seriously, but the evidence on display here is far from compelling.

About the Author James R. Lewis, a world-recognized authority on nontraditional religions, teaches religious studies at the University of Wisconsin, and is the author or editor of over 20 books, including ODD GODS; DOOMSDAY PROPHECIES, and the ENCYCLOPEDIA OF CULTS, SECTS, AND NEW RELIGIONS. Book Description The macabre mass suicide by adherents of the Heaven's Gate Cult in 1997 was shocking and difficult to comprehend for most outsiders. Their bizarre mindset, which mixed New Age religion with belief in extraterrestrial visitation, struck many as unique. In fact, as the contributors to this intriguing study show, the belief in alien contact has had religious overtones since the first purported sighting of an unidentified flying object (UFO) in 1947. Moreover, the religious dimensions of the UFO phenomenon may be the key to understanding the widespread appeal of this modern craze. An expert in new religions, Professor James Lewis has here brought together twenty insightful articles by leading scholars that cover the many variations of UFO-based religions. What the contributors demonstrate is that there are persistent and salient themes underlying the diversity of beliefs centered on the UFO sightings and alleged contacts as attempts by alien ambassadors from a more advanced civilization to bring spiritual enlightenment to Earth, where humanity is seen to be floundering in ignorance. THE ENCYCLOPEDIC SOURCEBOOK OF UFO RELIGIONS discusses the histories and beliefs of prominent UFO-based sects; looks at group dynamics and other sociological factors; and presents extensive selections from the unusual literature of the various groups. This revealing and disturbing study shows that there is much more to the UFO phenomenon than simple curiosity about the possibility of life on other planets.

Eagle Wing Books

Book Description A highly acclaimed cult classic leading from a Native American pipe ritual held at the base of a large mound to the finding that mystical experiences and paranormal phenomena stem from an interaction between brain chemistry and magnetic fields. Carl Jung's theories of archetypes are employed to explain the manifestation of physical phenomena into reality during rituals. Much of the field of ufology is debunked in this book, however, the finding that something very real is at the core of UFO reports is made. The Cheyenne massum ceremony is explained as a means of evoking the appearance of physical archetypes including fairies, angels, and glowing apparitions. About the Author Dr. Greg Little holds a master's degree in psychology and a doctorate in counseling from Memphis State University. He is associate editor of Alternate Perceptions magazine and has published three books on the paranormal.

From Booklist Mack's credentials are impressive; he's a Pulitzer Prize winner and professor of psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School's Cambridge Hospital. He has investigated 76 UFO abduction cases over the past four years and here summarizes 13 of them, also offering his scholarly comments and controversial conclusions. These narratives involve scenarios that are sexually explicit, terrifyingly gruesome, and mind-numbingly chilling in their implications for the nature of reality. The individuals Mack portrays have experienced deeply traumatic events that have transformed their lives--for the worse at first, but ultimately for the better. According to Mack, the aliens are objectively real and seem to be abducting people for two purposes: (1) changing human consciousness to prevent the destruction of Earth's ecosystems and (2) creating offsping from aliens and humans. What sets Mack's book apart is his willingness to deal with some of his clients' assertions that they themselves are half-human and half-alien, at least psychologically or spiritually; his acceptance that the laws of physics can be broken (many abductees claim that the aliens can "float" them through solid objects such as doors and closed windows); his seemingly routine procedure to hypnotically regress abductees into previous incarnations; and his emphasis on spiritual transformation as the nexus of the abduction (even likening it to a shamanic expansion of consciousness). How much you agree with all this may depend on where you're coming from to begin with. Nonetheless, Mack has shown the psychiatric community that the UFO abduction syndrome is a real problem that deserves serious clinical attention.

Hardcover Prometheus Books

From Publishers Weekly Matheson, an English professor at the University of Saskatchewan, attempts to unpack alien abduction narratives. By examining the structure, narrative and tone used by such writers as John Fuller and John Mack, he finds that early accounts tended to portray extraterrestrials as benign, while more recent depictions present aliens with "intellects vast, cool and unsympathetic," in the words of H.G. Wells. Matheson discusses how authors try to establish their credibility with tactics such as including an introduction by a presumably impartial observer or detailed verbatim transcripts of hypnosis-induced accounts. In published abductee reports, he says, the abductees are presented as coming from normal backgrounds, often bewildered by their experience. A concluding chapter suggests that abductees create aliens as projections of themselves, seen as advanced slaves of a joyless technology. Believers (roughly half the population, according to some surveys) are likely to have read many of the accounts analyzed here and may find Matheson's critical remarks unwelcome. The more skeptical may consider his summaries tedious, preferring Carl Sagan's balanced and inclusive book, The Demon-Haunted World. Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Booklist In the growing collection of pseudoscientific works on alien abductions, Matheson provides a refreshingly rational breath of fresh air. He takes an unusual approach by using a literary rather than strictly scientific analysis of the stories. Working with narratives from various abduction accounts, Matheson shows how those accounts have been used, reinterpreted, and sometimes deliberately altered by different authors. He uses such books as Whitley Strieber's Communion (1987) and Raymond Fowler's ... read more

Amazon.com It's not your typical UFO book, though it is full of contactees, conspiracy plots, and cattle mutilations. With an in-depth, although skeptical scrutiny of the UFO phenomenon, Peebles doesn't address every case but tackles the most widely quoted incidents from Kenneth Arnold's sighting of flying disks in the '40s through the abduction trends of the early '90s. While the book is biased, Peebles' research is impeccable, and he brings to light facts which many pro-UFO authors tend to neglect. From Publishers Weekly Aerospace historian Peebles ( The Moby Dick Project ) argues that all UFO reports are misinterpretations of conventional objects, atmospheric phenomena, drama, delusional experiences, or else hoaxes. His debunking chronicle of UFO phenomena--extending from pilot Kenneth Arnold's 1947 sighting of craft near Mount Rainier in Washington to the modern era--is marred by highly selective reporting, distortions and omissions.

From Booklist If Pope is correct, Earth is currently in the middle of an interplanetary war. He claims that while he was stationed at the "UFO Desk" of Britain's Ministry of Defense, he studied UFO sightings as well as crop circles and cattle mutilations--all of which led him to the conclusion that the aliens are here, and they aren't friendly. He believes it is time the British government and the world in general rally to confront the invaders. The author openly compares himself to Fox Mulder of TV's X-Files in his struggles to bring forth the hidden evidence of the security danger to planet Earth. This work, which originally was published in England and was a best-seller there, is one for the true believers. Although numerous incidents are cited, actual evidence is lacking, and logic is often absent from the author's arguments. Nevertheless, the topic is perennially popular, and Pope's belief in UFOs will attract attention. Eric Robbins From Kirkus Reviews As a career civil servant with Britain's Ministry of Defence, Pope served a three-year stint in the early 1990s as chief investigator of UFO sightings in the United Kingdom. He began as a skeptic and ended up a true believer. This book, a bestseller in Britain, attempts to explain his conversion but does a poor job of it. Fully a third of the book is spent discussing what is by now a familiar litany of UFO-related phenomena: Roswell, Area 51, the US Air Force ``Blue Book'' of UFO investigations,... read more Book Description Terrifying abductions...Unidentified spacecraft...Secret alien autopsies...Government cover-ups...

Hardcover St. Martin's Press

From Kirkus Reviews A well-written anti-abduction perspective on alien encounters that systematically examines and refutes each argument used by abduction proponents. Although Randle (UFO Crash at Roswell, not reviewed), Estes (who has interviewed scores of people who claim to have been abudcted by aliens), and psychologist Cone admit to having had alien encounters and other paranormal experiences, they conclude that every phenomenon theyve investigated had a natural explanation. The authors first present the benign visitation accounts from the 1940s and `50s, which evolved into single-event abductions and later into multiple-abduction accounts. They even present the case of an abductee who claims to have come from a family of abductees. Throughout the book, the authors mention news accounts, science fiction books, and movies, part of the common culture, that can account for some of the parallels among various abductee reports. Abduction researchers, some with whole chapters devoted to them, are attacked for creating stories that fit together seamlessly. Not only are these researchers tending to report only the pieces that fit their theories, but they use techniques such as hypnosis and even ``the leading question method'' to make the subject highly suggestible and induce memories. The book divides those who have encountered aliens into ``contactees'' and ``abductees.'' The former tell of getting a ride on the alien ship and perhaps a glimpse of the future. The latter tell of hybrid alien-human fetuses, bodily implants that appear and disappear, and the ubiquitous rectal probe. A whole chapter is devoted to the sexual components of abduction accounts, ranging from cold dispassionate reproductive experiments to sex-starved space travelers who seem to enjoy ``sex for the sake of sex.'' These three self-proclaimed believers have actually debunked every paranormal abduction phenomenon with a well-reasoned terrestrial explanation.

Hardcover William Morrow

From Library Journal Ring, author of Life at Death (Quill: Morrow, 1982), compares the experiences of UFO abductees to the out-of-body journeys of those near death. Initially, his title seems misleading. He mixes a few archetypes and fairy tales with some philosophy and religion, the result of which is a theory regarding the "encounter-prone personality." This type of person represents the spiritual evolution of humankind, people who are tapped into the "Mind at Large"--i.e., a creative, helpful force that will assist us in saving ourselves and our planet from destruction. This book differs from other UFO material in that the question of whether the encounters are real or not is not at issue. The symbolism is what matters, e.g. abductees usually report receiving a physical examination from the aliens. Ring sees this as a warning that we need to examine and to heal ourselves. Loaded with case histories of near-death experiences and UFO encounters, questionnaires, and impressive notes and bibliography, this will appeal to general readers. -Maureen R. Shields, New City Lib., N.Y. Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Amazon.com The tension of Diary of an Abduction builds like a well-crafted suspense thriller. In the opening entries, which begin in September of 1986 and continue for 13 years, we meet author and scientist Angela Thompson Smith (Remote Perceptions), who learns of a phenomenon called alien abduction, which touches upon her professional fields of neuropsychology and the cognitive sciences. Even though the possibility of alien abductions was "beyond comprehension," the author was hooked--and thus began an exploration into the underworld of UFO conferences, abduction clubs, forced impregnation, and reports of alien babies. Ultimately, she comes to the realization that she is, in fact, living a double life that involves unexplained lapses in time, mysterious markings (circular bruises, single-spot scabs) that appear on her body upon waking, and vivid, recurring dreams of abductions. Memories begin to flood her mind, as Smith realizes her abductions began in childhood and are still happening. When Smith recounts the details of her dreams/abductions, she has an Agent Scully straightforwardness, even as she writes about having a device like a telephone jack (but smaller) implanted in her ear canal, or trying to help a seemingly human baby who is being improperly cared for by bungling aliens. Like any dream memory, the images are fleeting and disjointed. She'll remember the clear plastic seat that holds the baby, but she'll have no sense of the broader setting--her bedroom? A spaceship? A laboratory? What gives this diary authority is the ongoing investigative work of Smith as she researches information from numerous sources, including government officials (expect a fascinating UFO story about a former president), scientific journals, and abduction investigators. Read it like an X-File or read it like a scientific report. Either way, you won't be disappointed. --Tara West Book Description Angela Thompson Smith first began studying UFOs and alien abducion reports of a scientist's unquenchable curiosity, the desire to fill a void of knowledge. Then something "clicked," and gradually memories from what seemed like a parallel life came sliding back into focus: unexplained events...strange anomalies...recurring dreams marked by waking evidence of physical exploitation. Smith's 13-year, day-by-day journal takes us on a fascinating journey between irreconcilable personal experience -... read more

From Publishers Weekly Bestselling UFO author and horror novelist Strieber (Communion, Transformation) here recounts his purported ongoing series of alien contacts over the past few years. Abducted in 1987 from his upstate New York cabin by a "visitor," Strieber is taken by UFO to Boulder, Colo., where he holds down his friend Dora Ruffner while her small daughter has her spine hammered by an insectoid alien. In 1993, a male humanoid "visitor" in a white tunic takes up residence with Strieber and his wife, imparting a sense of peace and joy. In other encounters, Strieber takes a jeep ride with a boy and ends up in an alternate universe; the "visitors" stage a journey through Eden; the author slips through the floorboards to enter the body of a human stranger. The aliens' contact with him?and with independent witnesses or contactees cited here?is cloaked in the symbolism of myth, folklore and spirituality. By this account, many who have written to Strieber divulging their UFO-related experiences report meetings with dead relatives. Without giving names or sources, Strieber also describes his involvement in a secret congressional UFO investigation. Fans will be captivated; others will be skeptical or wonder what it all means.

From School Library Journal YA Strieber has a reputation for writing well-researched nonfiction. Were it not for this reputation, readers would be more tempted to dismiss as fantasy this account of visits he has received from a non-human group. In the winter of 198586, the visits became both more frequent and more visible. Strieber sought the help of a counselor/hypnotist, who did not accept the alien hypothesis. Eventually Strieber's wife was also hypnotized. The accounts both Striebers gave under hypnosis and the memories that surfaced after hynosis, as well as several witnesses to aspects of the visitations all corroborate that something abnormal occurred. Strieber is careful not to jump to any conclusions; in fact, he philosophizes at length about the possibilities which include aliens, an as yet unidentified aspect of the human mind, or some generally invisible earth inhabitant such as fairies. The book is fascinating as long as it sticks to the basic account, and the ways in which the Striebers chose to research the phenomena. The passages of hypothesizing are more longwinded and will be of less interest to young adults, but they do remind readers that the Striebers have not accepted a single answer to the puzzle even now. Any readers who have interest in the unexplained will appreciate this book.

From Publishers Weekly Strieber, author of Communion and Transformation , continues to write on the implications of UFO sightings in his new novel, a blend of fact and fiction. In 1989, ex-CIA agent Wilfred Stone entrusts his story and secret papers on a decades-long coverup to reporter Nicholas Duke. Will confesses his part in the conspiracy demanded by President Truman and the nation's combined intelligence agencies in 1947, when a spacecraft crashed near Rosell (N.M.) Army Base. Many people witnessed the event and swore to finding bodies of extraterrestrial victims and other phenomena at the site. The accounts were, however, officially debunked, as all similar phenomena have been. That's the gist of Strieber's very long, sensationalized story, which may create more dissension rather than believers in the mysterious sightings recorded since the 19th century. If Strieber's book proves anything, it's that the public is entitled to honest information on "foo-flights" and their implications. Preferred Choice selection; Troll Book Club alternate.

From Publishers Weekly With this new volume of recovered memories and apocalyptic predictions, Strieber continues the journey he began with Communion, his extraordinarily successful account of alien abduction. While that book was largely about his experiences with "the visitors," the follow-up books, Transformation and Breakthrough, were more concerned with the spiritual implications of alien contact. Strieber now takes this process even further, into prophecy and New Age rumination. He contends that, as a child in San Antonio in the 1950s, he and other children were taken in the middle of the night to a secret school run by aliens in the middle of San Antonio's wild Olmos Basin. The book is structured as a series of "lessons," mostly specific memories of his ninth summer, followed by "commentaries," a series of vague and increasingly wild speculations and predictions. Most of the spiritual content here is a farrago of nearly every New Age preoccupation imaginable?aliens, reincarnation, time travel, millennial disaster, Atlantis, etc.?"proved" by highly credulous readings of popular science articles. As the author of entertaining and elegantly composed narratives about personal contact with mysterious entities that are unsupported by proof and that purvey a maddeningly vague message of spiritual release, Strieber has become the Carlos Castaneda of the 1990s. Even those who don't believe a word of what he's saying will enjoy his writing?about his Texas boyhood in particular?and his ability to conjure a sense of terror, awe and wonderment.

Hardcover Addison-Wesley Publishing

From School Library Journal YA-- In dealing with a subject as inherently out of the ordinary as ``Ufology,'' it might seem a daunting task to distinguish the more worthwhile books from the merely exploitative. In recent years some researchers have begun to focus their investigations, as Jung in the beginning suggested, on questions of psychology, culture, and myth. Thompson follows this bent. Neither disciple nor debunker, he presents a balanced and informative account of the subject. His book should be useful in satisfying YAs' curiosity, as he goes back to original reports, interviews, and historical context to tell the facts of famous UFO incidents. Against this reportorial backdrop, Thompson traces the development of the UFO ``believer'' subculture and the equally adamant opposition to it. He makes ancient myths come alive as he uses them to lend perspective and depth to various aspects of ufology; in doing so he enters what might be seen as ``new age'' territory, showing a sense of wonder and adventurousness tempered by a social concern. This book might even satisfy those who are seeking sensationalism, since UFOs are always rather strange, even when treated (as here) responsibly. Thompson does not provide any definitive answers, but for thoughtful readers, Angels and Aliens will be a treat. - Christine C. Menefee, Fairfax County Public Library, VA Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Kirkus Reviews Look, up in the sky! It's a bird! A plane! A UFO! An angel! It's all of this and more, according to free-lancer Thompson (New Age magazine, etc.), whose debut book champions the view that flying saucers have soared to earth from ``mythic horizons and imaginal realms,'' and that the public's fascination with these pixilated objects is really ``a religious search to recover lost intimacy.'' As Thompson observes, most ufologists fall into two camps- -those who identify UFOs as alien spacecraft, and... read more

Amazon.com Joe Tripician has obviously never (and admits as much) been abducted by aliens, or he could never have written such a screamingly funny book about what would obviously be traumatizing events. The book might bring up bad remembrances for those who have been abducted by aliens, but since so many abductees seem to have repeat experiences, Tripician's handbook will put them in good stead for the next time. It includes advice on how to "dis" an alien, how to tell your mate about the experience, how to appear on talk shows afterward, and many other essential bits of information. Ingram Extraterrestrials obviously have seeped into our consciousness. Finally, in a hilarious send-up of self-help manuals, Emmy Award-winning author Joe Tripician fearlessly tackles the whole spectrumaliens, UFOs, true believers, government deceptions and other things paranormal. Peppered with facts, conspiracies, opinion, and events too incredible not to be made up (but aren't).

From Publishers Weekly Vallee, a California astrophysicist, here analyzes UFO sightings that he has investigated personally and concludes that UFOs are real, but that, far from being the emissaries of extraterrestrial civilizations, they represent "a yet unrecognized level of consciousness, independent of man but closely linked to the earth." He argues that we will understand the UFO phenomenon only when we expand our view of the physical universe beyond four dimensions, and he urges scientists to take a greater interest in the subject because certain sightings that he has researched, particularly in Brazil, show that UFOs offer both a complex technology (probably microwave) and a hostile potential. Vallee's ( Dimensions ) theories will doubtless upset conventional ufologists, while nonbelievers will preserve their skepticism.

He argues that we will understand the UFO phenomenon only when we expand our view of the physical universe beyond four dimensions, and he urges scientists to take a greater interest in the subject because certain sightings that he has researched, particularly in Brazil, show that UFOs offer both a complex technology (probably microwave) and a hostile potential. Vallee's ( Dimensions ) theories will doubtless upset conventional ufologists, while nonbelievers will preserve their skepticism. Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal The audience for books on Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) remains strong--the 1989-90 edition of Books in Print lists over 100 adult titles. Vallee's Anatomy of a Phenomenon ( LJ 6/1/65) helped provide scientific respectability to the study of UFOs. While Vallee stresses the need to maintain scientific objectivity and a critical attitude, he is not afraid to offer theories which go beyond traditional extraterrestrial hypotheses. Among the 100 cases reported here are some in which observers... read more

Book Description Throughout the modern UFO era, thousands of honest scientists and informed laymen have seen through the official denials, the suppressions, and the whitewash -- and realized that, indeed, we are not alone. To them, author Jacques Vallee, the world's most renowned UFO expert, presents a tantalizing question. What if -- just if -- these alien visitors are Not from other planets? What if they have always been among us? What if we can finally prove the case to which so much evidence points: That they have lived on earth for centuries, perhaps, from the beginning of time. That they may inhabit another dimension, a dimension so startlingly different from our own that our consciousness lurches to experience it religiously. At once exhilarating and persuasive, Vallee's brilliant insights include a metaphysical odyssey through some of the most mystifying incidents in religious and mythological lore. The miraculous visions of the Lady of Fatima in 1917. The "cloudships" said to have visited medieval France. The ancient Tzeltal Indians of Mexico kidnapped by flying half humans. With his unparalleled knowledge of thousands of close encounters. Vallee -- the UFO authority celebrated in Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind -- constructs an eye-opening, yet ultimately irresistible theory: one that reveals the shocking reality of the ever-present, ever-powerful interdimensional aliens of Earth... and humanity's persistent inability to understand them. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Ingram Vallee, a trained astrophysicist holding a doctorate in computer science, has reviewed the evidence supporting UFO sightings and has concluded that "alien" visitations are neither figments of imaginations, nor are they coming from other planets or galaxies. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Library Journal Vallee, a respected investigator in a difficult field (he was the real-life model behind the French scientist in Steven Spielberg's film Close Encounters of the Third Kind ), here presents the final volume of his recent trilogy of reports. (The first two are Dimensions: A Casebook of Alien Contact , Contemporary Bks., 1988, and Confrontations: A Scientist's Search for Alien Contact , LJ 3/1/90.) Readers with some background in the puzzling UFO phenomenon of the last 40 years will appreciate his insights. He pulls no punches with both government obfuscation and the lunatic fringe of UFO cultists. Most valuable is his international scope. There are few answers here, but several suggestions for rational lines of research. Recommended. - Jeanne S. Bagby, formerly with Tucson P.L., Ariz. Copyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Kirkus Reviews Bracing finale to Vallee's ``Alien Contact trilogy'' (Dimensions, 1988; Confrontations, 1990), as the ufologist brings some famous UFO cases down to earth--and into the mud. In Dimensions, Vallee presented his theory that UFOs are probably not spacecraft but manifestations of a consciousness- controlling ``technology'' from ``dimensions beyond spacetime''; in Confrontations, he bolstered that theory with examples from his own casebook. Here, deftly blending theory and memoir, he attempts to... read more

From Publishers Weekly Known principally as an investigator of the UFO phenomenon ( Dimensions ) and a science fiction novelist, the French-born Vallee (now a resident of the U.S.) has also worked as a computer scientist in both academia and industry. Ufologists will not find the answers to all of their questions here, for although Vallee believes that UFOs exist, he has no idea just what they are. Therein lies the excellence of his dazzling diary: it offers a glimpse into the mind of a scientist who seems to challenge every preconception and established piety. To his academic training as a mathematician and scientist, which stressed rational approaches to problems, Vallee has brought an interest in the mystical, the psychical, the paranormal. He has been a Rosicrucian and has studied the works of ancient scientists like Paracelsus. His diary is replete with profoundly insightful, often devastating observations about the strengths and weaknesses of France and the U.S., their academics and their researchers in industry. Photos. Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal Vallee's Anatomy of a Phenomenon ( LJ 6/1/65) was one of the first popular studies of UFOs written by a scientist. A computer specialist, Vallee became interested in UFOs after seeing an unidentified flying object near his home in France. His journals encompass a major portion of his professional life: his initial training in astronomy, his emigration to the United States, and his close association with J. Allen Hynek, noted adviser to the U.S. Air Force on UFOs. Vallee admits that he is no... read more

page 396, "Possible Telepathic Spread of Abduction Stories" by Brian C. Thompson page 400, "Kenneth Ring's Imaginal Realm Hypothesis" by Thomas Bullard From Booklist Whatever the cause, hundreds of people--perhaps thousands--around the world are recounting strange and vivid experiences of being abducted and medically examined by seemingly alien beings in unearthly surroundings. This volume contains the papers presented at a conference on UFO abduction experiences held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, June 13^-17, 1992. The scientists and researchers who presented the 118 papers examined the medical and physical evidence and offered their personal perspectives on this complex phenomenon. Especially interesting are reports of alleged bodily implants and the varied theories that might account for those experiences. Selected papers include "The Influence of Investigators on UFO Abduction Reports" (Thomas E. Bullard, Indiana University); "Hypnosis and Accuracy of Abduction Memory" (Stuart Appelle, SUNY-Brockport); "Physical Evidence and Abductions" (David Pritchard, MIT); "Religious Perspective of Stories: Contactee to Abductee" (J. Gordon Melton, UC^-Santa Barbara); and "Psychosocial Characteristics of Abductees" (Mark Rodeghier, University of Illinois at Chicago). The unabridged questions and comments of conference participants that followed the presentations are also reprinted. George Eberhart Jerome Clark: Ed. International UFO Reporter, UFO encyclopedia author "This is one of the best books ever published on a UFO-related subject and will be considered one of the essential works in the literature. It's a real landmark in the serious study of the phenomenon."

From Library Journal On November 5, 1975, after a long day of tree thinning, a group of loggers returning home to Snowflake, Arizona, noticed a strange glow in the sky. Curious, author Walton stepped out of the truck and walked toward the light. Suddenly a beam appeared, and Walton was forced to the ground as his panicked co-workers fled the scene. With Walton missing for five days, his co-workers were suspected of homicide, and a search was conducted for the body. Walton related his abduction by aliens in an earlier book (The Walton Experience, 1978), and Fire in the Sky, a movie based on that book, was released in 1993. Walton's new account of his story attempts to pull all the information together, place it in context, and provide a critical analysis. Included here are the initial experience, speculations, the making of the movie, and the writings of those who would debunk the incident. The result is a comprehensive presentation that X-File patrons will find of particular interest.?L. Kriz, West Des Moines Lib., Ia. Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Amazon.com In his 10 years of experience as a publicly recognized close-encounter witness, Whitley Strieber has labored to lift the veils of skepticism and denial from scientists, politicians, and reporters. He's appreciated a climate of increasing open-mindedness, noting also that any hard evidence confirming the existence of UFOs, close encounters, and alien abductions has been, to date, lacking. But times, he writes in Confirmation, have changed. "Gone are the arguments that science has nothing to work with. Behavioral science has not only the witnesses but also physical proof that something unknown has happened to at least some of them, in the form of apparent implants that have been removed from their bodies." Further, "fantastic advances" are enabling false alien-abduction stories to be weeded out the from the true ones. But it reads like a stew of bold assertions tagged onto eyewitness accounts, the "truth" of which remains largely anecdotal, and mixed in with a discussion of new theories about false-memory syndrome. Confirmation might rally the believers, but it will make the unconverted skeptical and querulous. Whitley Strieber has never suggested that the alien presence among us is benign, and his confessions and investigations have always been unnerving. Sinister, secret, and bizarre are words he uses to describe "them." Strieber's "evidence" that there are aliens among us falls into three areas: an increase in amateur videotapes of strange objects in the sky; the massive amount of abduction testimony that is different from older accounts; and the insidious implants that have been removed from close-encounter witnesses (of which he is one). This last area is creepy, indeed, and we can be glad that science is conducting careful studies. What the implants are made of, how they function, and what their purpose might be--these questions hold the key to Strieber's mystery. His reporting of the "facts" begins on July 11, 1991, in Mexico City during a total eclipse of the sun. A UFO was spotted and videotaped by hundreds. Exhaustively he argues against the variables--it can be, for example, neither Venus nor a star. He recounts the heated public debates and asserts that this 1991 event was not isolated, but heralded an extended period of sightings. Of course, he admits, hoaxes abounded, too. When it comes to discussing the three videos that have actually appeared on TV depicting aliens, Strieber's extrapolations do not harden to proof. Yet he begins part 2 of Confirmation with this assertion: "The evidence that UFOs are flying around in our skies is so extensive that it is reasonable to consider that these unconventional objects are in some way real, and that many of them seem to be under intelligent control." This part of the book (it's livelier than the first part, because it's even creepier) presents testimony of actual encounters. These narratives came to him in letter form and his approach is to discern common threads among wildly diverse experiences. Rejecting psychological explanations for alleged abductions, Strieber pounces on what he thinks of as the reliable source--"the natural memories of people who have had continuous recall of their experiences from the time they happened." Now, when was the last time you trusted your memory as a reliable source? But Strieber believes without a doubt that we are receiving communication from another world. Describing the strange and chilling world of the abduction letters, he's convinced that they indicate "the working of a nonhuman mind, or of a part of the human mind so hidden that it has never before gained a voice." So is it Close Encounters or psychosis? Unfortunately, with every extrapolation or assertion, Whitley Strieber's arguments seem more and more strained; the "proof" remains, alas, poofy, as when he compares the increasingly elaborate abduction narratives to those of crop circles--another documented but unexplained mystery--citing elaboration itself as proof of increasingly different abductions. Since the first sightings, crop circles, too, have gr
