by Patricia D. Netzley

Editorial Reviews

In UFOs, Netzley first explains what a UFO really is. She then talks about various sightings and whether it is possible to determine if a sighting is real or not. A whole chapter is devoted to perhaps the most (in)famous of UFO sightings and its aftermath, the Roswell Incident. Netzley starts at the beginning, with the discovery of some strange metal fragments by rancher Max Brazel in New Mexico. Also discussed are alien abductions, again citing actual examples. This volume concludes with "Inadequate Studies," a chapter in which Netzley weighs pros and cons and declares that it is impossible to determine from the available evidence whether or not alien UFOs do exist. This book is written in a clear, rational tone. It is entertaining yet provide a lot of objective information that might be used in reports. Other titles in the series include Witches by Stuart A. Kallen, and The Curse of King Tut and Haunted Houses by Netzley. All are well written and avoid sensationalism. Helpful indexes, source notes, and ideas for further reading are included in each. Index. Illus. Photos. Source Notes. Further Reading.
