During the late 1960s and early 1970s, when he was subject to nonstop surveillance and harassment from both human and supernatural spooks, intrepid Fortean investigator John A. Keel made extensive field notes concerning the phenomena he was confronting in West Virginia and New York: UFOs, ´´Men in Black´´, creature entities, ultraterrestrials, and odd coincidences and synchronicities. The result was a series of concise, thematically related reports, many of which were incorporated into magazine articles for Saga, Fate, Flying Saucer Review, and Flying Saucers magazine.In those articles, Keel unraveled threads discussed in his classic books, Operation Trojan Horse, The Mothman Prophecies, and The Eighth Tower, which were written soon after. Utilizing occult lore, recent scientific research, and direct personal investigation, Keel drew back the curtain on the mind-blowing nature of our terrestrial reality. In this volume, we look at Keel´s favorite articles from Flying Saucers magazine, which was published and edited largely by Ray Palmer. Keel went on record as saying that he thought Palmer was the ´´father of ufology´´, and he helped Palmer by submitting many articles to the magazine, and even helping with editing chores whenever possible.This special Keel-curated edition features interesting articles by Keel, Palmer, Brad Steiger, Gray Barker, Brent Raynes, Peter Guttilla, William Cullen, Larry Bryant, Alois Knapp, Tom Lingham, Jennifer Stevens, Erich Aggen, Jr., Dennis Stamey, Alberto Perego, T. Scott Crain, and Hans Lauritzen. ´´The intersection of science and creative thinking.´´ (High Times)´´A great collection of classic articles from the field of ufology.´´ (UFO Magazine) ´´A look back at a very interesting time in UFO history.´´ (MUFON Journal) 1.

New Saucerian Press is pleased to present The Perspicacious Percipient: How to Investigate UFOs and Other Insane Urges, a collection of magazine articles by John A. Keel, the man many consider to have been not only the premiere investigator of all things unusual and Fortean but who was also our own 20th-century Mark Twain. Many of the articles in this anthology and its companion volumes, Flying Saucer to the Center of Your Mind, The Outer Limits of the Twilight Zone, Searching for the String, The Great Phonograph in the Sky, and The Passionate Percipient: Illusions I Have Known And Loved, were revolutionary and explored ideas popularized in Keel´s classic books. Written in Keel´s engaging trademark style, they are sure to delight fans with their fresh, unparalleled insights into the nature of reality. In the book, John Keel displays the keen observational skills and investigative tenacity that made him the enfant terrible of ufology for decades. In this no-holds-barred analysis - much of it written decades ago - Keel shreds many of the sacred-cow beliefs still held in ufological and cryptozoological circles today and presents theories so radical that they are only now becoming accepted: the 4-D or interdimensional thesis; the breakaway civilization theory; the possible role of ancient aliens in human history; the synthetic and/or hallucinatory nature of many alien abduction and men in black encounters; the role of spy agencies in paranormal research; and the alarming connection between UFOs, animal mutilations, and attacks on unsuspecting humans. The Perspicacious Percipient is the grand finale to the six-part John Keel Collection series of books - a must-have for serious UFO researchers. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Barnard.

Our skies are filled with Trojan horses....´´The real UFO story must encompass all of the many manifestations being observed. It is a story of ghosts and phantoms and strange mental aberrations; of an invisible world that surrounds us and occasionally engulfs us; of prophets and prophecies, and gods and demons. It is a world of illusion and hallucination where the unreal seems very real, and where reality itself is distorted by strange forces which can seemingly manipulate space, time, and physical matter - forces that are almost entirely beyond our powers of comprehension.”When this work was first published in 1970, it shredded the then-trendy nuts-and-bolts extraterrestrial hypothesis for UFOs in favor of one that linked UFOs to a variety of paranormal and supernatural phenomena that have taken place throughout history. Keel was one of the first to note that the UFO phenomenon appears in different disguises - and that one could not begin to decipher this great mystery without first taking into account its many and varied deliberate deceptions. Other than a few corrections, this Anomalist Books edition essentially follows the original 1970 edition of UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse.About the author: John A. Keel (March 25, 1930-July 3, 2009) was an American journalist and influential ufologist best known as the author of The Mothman Prophecies. In the 1950s, he spent time in Egypt, India, and the Himalayas investigating snake-charming cults, the Indian rope trick, and the legendary yeti, an adventure that culminated in the publication of his first book, Jadoo. In the mid-1960s, he took up investigating UFOs and assorted forteana and published his first knockout UFO book, UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Hacker.

This book provides a critical overview of such subjects as mysticism, speaking in tongues, John-Roger Hinkins and MSIA, Sathya Sai Baba, astrology, near-death experiences, and UFOs. Previously published under the title The Mystical. Excerpt: There is a mystical dimension that runs through all aspects of life. Eventually every human endeavor directly encounters an impenetrable mystery where knowledge turns into ignorance and control into wonder. Indeed, no matter how much science or technology may advance, the essential mystery of life will never change. The reason why is simple: Reality is always greater than our conceptions of it. Thus, contrary to our popular notions of mysticism, genuine spiritual practice is not concerned with increasing knowledge, per se, but rather reconciling man with his fundamental state of absolute ignorance. We are born into a mystery; we live in a mystery; and we die in a mystery. Although we may learn about things, achieving various levels of technical proficiency, we apparently can never know what a single thing is. For instance, what is a circle? What is a thought? What is a self? The essence of everything eludes us because our perceptions are always limited. As the late Baba Faqir Chand, the great sage of Hoshiarpur, once told me personally, ´´Nature is unfathomable. No one has ever been able to know it completely. No one has known it. A small germ in a body cannot know the whole body. Similarly (a) human being is like a small germ in a vast Creation. How can he claim to have known the entire Creation. Those who say that they have known are wrong. No one can describe or even know the entire Creation. It is indescribable.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ian Kingsley.

This dramatic program provides an overview of the state of UFO research in the 1960´s. The UFO attack on Washington, DC: August of 1952 became known as ´´The Summer of The Saucers´´ when numerous UFOs were seen - and many tracked on radar - for several weeks over the United States capitol. They repeatedly violated restricted airspace including flying near and/or over the White House and the Capitol Building and flew at rates of speed in excess of 7000 miles an hour! In these two interview excerpts you´ll hear Al Chop, The Pentagon´s Public Relations Officer at the time, give an overview of the events followed by newsman John Dailey´s interview of James Ritchie of the Civil Aeronautics Association, who seems at a loss to explain the strange incidents. 1966 radio interview with Bill Donovan of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) during it´s heyday. He discusses misidentifications vs. valid sightings, pilot reports, Air Force restriction of publication of sightings by military personnel (and even commercial pilots) and a discussion of foreign sightings (Russia, Chile, and Argentina) and how they´re handled by their respective governments. Donovan then goes into detail about yet another astronaut UFO sighting - namely James McDivitt´s sighting of (and report on) a ´´bogey´´ during his Gemini IV space flight. There´s also a brief discussion of changing geographic patterns on the moon and the possible use of the moon as a defense base either by the US or Russia and the 1955 statement by Gen Douglas McArthur that ´´the next war would be interplanetary.´´ 1.

An amazing collection of interviews with highly credible investigators and witnesses of UFO encounters. George Adamski: George Adamski (April 17, 1891- April 23, 1965) was a Polish-born American citizen who became widely known in ufology circles, and to some degree in popular culture, after he claimed to have photographed ships from other planets, met with friendly ´´Space Brothers´´, and to have taken flights with them. The first of the so-called contactees of the 1950s, he styled himself to be a ´´philosopher, teacher, student, and saucer researcher´´. Daniel Fry: An American contactee who claimed he had multiple contacts with an alien and took a ride in a remotely piloted alien spacecraft on July 4, 1949. George Van Tassle: A contactee, ufologist, and paranormal research leader who, in 1958, commenced building - but never completed - the Integratron, in the desert town of Landers, California. It was supposedly a domed time/energy machine built partially upon the theories of Nikola Tesla. Orfeo Angelucci: One of the most unusual of the mid-1950s contactees who claimed to be in contact with extraterrestrials. Dan Martin: A 1955 Texas contactee who, according to Long John Nebel, a radio talk-show host of the day who knew and interviewed most of them, ´´was at the other end of the spectrum from Orfeo Angelucci.´´ Frank Edwards: After World War II, the Mutual Broadcasting System hired Edwards to host a nationwide news and opinion program sponsored by the American Federation of Labor. Edwards´ program was a success, and became nationally popular. An American writer and broadcaster, and one of the pioneers of radio, late in his life, he became well known for a series of books about UFOs. Donald Keyhoe: Well known as an engaged, knowledgeable UFO researcher, arguing that the U.S. government should conduct appropriate research in UFO matters and should release all their UFO files. 1.

An Air Force major is ordered to approach a brilliant UFO in his Phantom jet over Tehran. He repeatedly attempts to engage and fire on unusual objects heading right toward his aircraft, but his missile control is locked and disabled. Witnessed from the ground, this dogfight becomes the subject of a secret report by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency. In Belgium, an Air Force colonel investigates a series of widespread sightings of unidentified triangular objects, sending F-16s to attempt a closer look. Hundreds of eyewitnesses, including on-duty police officers, file reports about the incident, and a spectacular photograph of an unidentifiable craft is retrieved and analyzed. Here at home, a retired chief of the Federal Aviation Administration’s Accidents and Investigations Division reveals the agency’s response to a 30-minute encounter between an aircraft and a gigantic UFO over Alaska, which occurred during his watch and is documented on radar. Now all three of these distinguished men have written breathtaking, firsthand accounts about these extraordinary incidents. They are joined by Air Force generals and a host of high-level sources who have agreed to write their own detailed, personal stories about UFO encounters and investigations for the first time. They are coming forward now because of Leslie Kean, an investigative reporter who has spent the last 10 years studying the still unexplained UFO phenomenon. Kean reviewed hundreds of government documents, aviation reports, radar data, and case studies with corroborating physical evidence. With the support of former White House Chief of Staff John Podesta, Kean draws on her research to separate fact from fiction and to lift the veil on decades of U.S. government misinformation. Throughout, she presents irrefutable evidence that unknown flying objects - metallic, luminous, and seemingly able to maneuver in ways that defy the laws of physics - actually exist. 1.
