Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Packed with thought-provoking stories and shocking revelations of alien involvement in the lives of Earthlings." —Magonia Book News, www.mrobft.blogspot.com
School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—The Steigers, along with half a dozen contributors, canvas every aspect of alien intel, including types (little green men, the Grays, the Praying Mantises) and their relationships to the U.S. presidency, secret societies, Nazis, and religion. The writing is straightforward and action-packed. An abundance of "eyewitness" accounts heightens the drama. However, sources lack credibility. For instance, in many cases eyewitnesses are referred to nonspecifically, as in "Peggy of Dearborn, Michigan" and "a toothless, eighty-year-old farmer from Brazil." Most of the quotes are not linked to a specific book in the bibliography though in a few instances the source is cited in context. The bibliography, though extensive, consists largely of books dating from the 1960s and 1970s, many of which were written by the Steigers. Except for a few black-and-white photographs, the illustrations that appear every few pages consist of black-and-white artist conceptualizations. With one exception, the photos are of people notable in the field. The exception depicts the "first—and to this date—only photo of an MIB [Man in Black alien]," though it looks like Everyman standing in a doorway on a city sidewalk. This is interesting reading but it lacks the requisite substance to qualify as a sound reference work.—Jennifer Prince, Buncombe County Public Libraries, NC

Meet the Author

The author/co-author of 170 books, Brad Steiger wrote the paperback bestseller Strangers from the Skies about UFOs. His edited work Project Bluebook was hailed by Omni magazine as one of the best UFO books of the century. Steiger was inducted into the Hypnosis Hall of Fame for his work with UFO contactees, abductees, and past life regression. In Minneapolis, he received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the National UFO and Unexplained Phenomena Conference.

The author/co-author of 43 books, Brad's wife, Sherry Steiger, an ordained minister with a special interest in UFOs in the Bible and world religions, began working closely in 1985 with Dr. J. Allen Hynek, official scientific advisor for the U.S. Air Force's twenty-year study of UFOs. Sherry served as his publicist, and confidante at his nonprofit UFO research organization in Phoenix until his death in 1986. This position made her privy to unpublished research and more than 80,000 documented cases from 161 countries.

For many decades, the Steigers have researched and investigated UFOs and their cultural impact throughout world history, and they have lectured and conducted seminars on the phenomenon throughout the United States and overseas. Sherry and Brad were featured in twenty-two episodes of the television series Could It Be a Miracle? Together, their television appearances and specials include: The Joan Rivers Show, Entertainment Tonight, Inside Edition, Hard Copy, Hollywood Insider, and specials on HBO, USA Network, The Learning Channel, The History Channel, and Arts and Entertainment (A&E), among others. They appear frequently as guests on numerous domestic and international radio talk shows.

    Distillation of All Important Facts in Ufology

    Twenty-four chapters of well-written summary of all the 250+ books on Ufology I've read to date, from the 1950s to present. But also includes new information I've never seen anywhere with adequate information to look it up yourself in other sources or online. Some of the more fascinating chapters include descriptions and encounters with the different alien types: The Praying Mantises, Nordics, reptilians, etc. Best chapters are Aliens and the Military, Aliens and the Space Program, Astronauts and Aliens, Alien Researchers Face Threats and Death. Excellent index and bibliography. This book is NOT TO BE MISSED!
