Government and intelligence agency files on the themes, technology, and personalities of science fiction? Yes, indeed. You’ll find them in the files of the FBI, US Army, US Navy, US Air Force, and US Department of State, and they are all covered in Nick Redfern's SCIENCE FICTION SECRETS.

-- Did the U.S. Government secretly assist Steven Spielberg in the production of his groundbreaking science fiction movies Close Encounters of the Third Kind and E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial?

-- Why were special agents of the FBI so deeply interested in the life, career, and activities of science fiction author Philip K. Dick (of "Blade Runner" fame)?

--Has the military managed to successfully perfect human teleportation of the type that was most graphically and famously shown in Star Trek and The Fly?

Also in the book are science fiction topics that venture into reality not through government documents but via other means, including apparently the paranormal.

-- How did The X-Files spin-off series The Lone Gunmen anticipate months in advance the terrible tragedy of 9-11?

-- Did a nightmarish scenario presented in one of H.G. Wells' novels prompt Soviet Premier Josef Stalin to clandestinely embark upon a secret and diabolical experiment designed to create a super race of monstrous, half-human half-ape soldiers?
