Overview

"One comes to a tender regard for Hopkins's subjects. Their uniform similarities of description of their UFO abductions and of the aliens bear a faithful fact that could sway many an ironclad skeptic."
THE KIRKUS REVIEWS
There have been tens of thousands of verified UFO sightings and landings. But it is the actual temporary abductions that are the most controversial and dramatic stories behind this phenomenon. In the summer of 1983, Kathie Davis was floated out of her room in rural Indianapolis, while she slept, then subjected to a physical examination inside a UFO. The story she told the world afterwards, and corroborated by specialists and hundreds of other victims all over the country, is not to be missed or dismissed lightly.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's 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. True or not, the author's speculations equal the excitement generated by his earlier book.
