Overview

Flying Saucers Over Los Angeles chronicles the first year of the flying saucer hysteria, from June 24, 1947, to June 14, 1950. Starting with the well-known Roswell crash and Maury Island incidents, Flying Saucers Over Los Angeles continues to little-known sightings and presents a contemporaneous view of the earliest UFO excitement in 1950s America.

Unvarnished by the accumulated speculation of the last forty-six years and from the vantage point of certainty that flying saucers are real, Flying Saucers Over Los Angeles unveils a previously unpublished manuscript by DeWayne B. Johnson as well as news and eyewitness accounts of actual flying saucer sightings over the L.A. basin. The author includes:
-- The most detailed accounts, never before published, of many early sightings
-- Many rare photos
-- A gazetteer of UFO sightings from 1947 up to the mid-'50s.

Kenn Thomas, veteran conspiracy author, is the editor of Steamshovel Press, which has been praised by the Utne Reader, the New York Times and the Washington Post for thorough and thought-provoking research. Thomas has worked as a professional archivist for ten years and has produced four previous volumes: Mind Control Oswald & JFK; The Octopus. NASA, Nazis & JFK; and Popular Alienation. He lives in St. Louis.
