Extraordinary Encounters: An Encyclopedia of Extraterrestrials and Otherworldly Beings is the first ever illustrated A–Z encyclopedia to explore these fascinating modern day beliefs, personalities, beings, and events. Among the beings you'll meet in its pages are Abraham, a collection of highly evolved entities that speak in one voice; Metranon, the divine interface between God and the Outer Worlds (and sometime Old Testament angel); and The Planetary Council, whose members include Jove, Merlin, Quetzalcoatl, and Lao-Tzu.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Clark (Encyclopedia of Strange & Unexplained Physical Phenomena, Unexplained: Strange Sightings, Incredible Occurrences, and Puzzling Physical Phenomena) is concerned here with experiences--or perceived experiences--of otherworldly forces, as claimed over the past 200 years. Most of the accounts fall far outside conventional notions of what it is possible to experience. Organized alphabetically, the entries are largely devoted to obscure occurrences, and the criterion for inclusion appears to be merely the claim of having seen or experienced some unusual extraterrestrial being or event. There is no evaluation or analysis of the stories related. Clark documents his sources with many suggestions for further reading, which consist of out-of-print works. Libraries with Clark's earlier works need not add this work. Those needing titles in this area would be better served by James Lewis's UFOs and Popular Culture (LJ 11/1/00).--Leroy Hommerding, Fort Myers Beach P.L. Dist., FL Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
Entries describe an amazing array of fantastic beings and events as well as the real-life people who claim to have witnessed them. Topics include Gerald Heard's Martian bees, Sasquatch, MU the mantis being, Marian apparitions, Whitley Strieber, Mount Shasta, hollow earth, fairies encountered, dead extraterrestrials, Nostradamus, and Zolton, who warned the Pentagon that visiting aliens could thwart their plans for war by disabling earthly weapons.
