More About the Author

Screenwriter Bryce Zabel has created five primetime network television series, including NBC's Emmy-winning "Dark Skies" which dramatized the UFO cover-up from the POV of the Kennedy years. He has written for a dozen other popular TV shows, and written and produced feature and television projects for many of Hollywood's networks and studios. He's collaborated with such top creative talents as Steven Spielberg and Stan Lee.

A former CNN correspondent, Bryce received the Writers Guild of America (WGA) award in 2008 for writing his third four-hour Hallmark mini-series, "Pandemic," and has written and produced films and mini-series that include "Atlantis: The Lost Empire," "Mortal Kombat: Annihilation," "Blackbeard" and "The Poseidon Adventure." He wrote SyFy's first original film, "Official Denial" that is now being developed for a feature re-boot. His end-of-World War II true story, "The Last Battle," is in development with Stellar Productions.

In television, Bryce also created or developed such series as "Kay O'Brien" (CBS), "M.A.N.T.I.S." (FOX), "The Crow: Stairway to Heaven" (SYN) and "E.N.G." (CTV). He has worked on such series as "Steven Spielberg's Taken," "L.A. Law," "Life Goes On," and "Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman." After 9/11, Bryce served as the elected chairman/CEO of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, the first writer in that position since Rod Serling. His Hollywood career has spanned ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, HBO, Showtime, Syfy, Sony, Warner Bros., 20th Century Fox, Universal, Paramount, Hallmark, USA, and Animal Planet.

His journalism and screenwriting work has been nominated for awards from the Environmental Media Association and Mystery Writers of America, and for Golden Mike, Gemini and Emmy awards. He is a member of the Directors Guild of America (DGA), Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the Writers Guild of America (WGA). His debut book, "A.D. After Disclosure" (Career Press, 2012), now in its fourth printing, was a Barnes & Noble "New & Noteworthy" selection.

Bryce lives in Los Angeles with his wife and writing/producing partner, Jackie Zabel.

I am an editor for Open Minds Magazine, and I was lucky enough to get a preview copy of this book. I know and like both of the authors and their work, so I was very excited to read it.

UFO researchers often express the desire for the government to disclose UFO secrets. But if and when that happens, who will disclose the information and how? What will the public find out? If it is something awful, do we want to know? What are the possible ramifications of disclosure, and how will our world change? These are the questions authors Richard Dolan and Bryce Zabel tackle in their new thought provoking book, A.D. After Disclosure.

The book sets the ground rules right off the bat; it is about speculation, it isn't about debating the reality of UFOs, nor is it about presenting evidence. Normally, I wouldn't be interested in a book based purely on speculation, if it not for the subject of the speculation in this case and the people doing the speculating. Speculation alone, of which this field has no shortage, can turn into chasing your tail, but in this case we have very educated and thorough speculation. At times the book reads more like a report prepared by a think tank.

The word "disclosure" is thrown around and taken in vain in the UFO research community, often, dare I say, in an irresponsible way. The longing for disclosure is like demanding that the police reveal the facts of a crime scene when we don't know the details ourselves, and thus cannot fathom the repercussions, or the effects it may have on solving the crime. It is easy to demand, but it seems incumbent upon us as responsible researchers to examine in detail what we want, and prepare for what might happen when or if we get it.

When I first heard Richard Dolan was working on a project called "A.D.: After Disclosure," I was in shock and disbelief. How could he put off completing Volume III of UFOs and the National Security State?? The first two volumes in that trilogy are indeed pretty much the definitive books on the evidence for UFOs, and I've been waiting with bated breath for the third, which promises to be just as earthshattering. But A.D. arrived from Amazon two days ago, and well, okay, I forgive him. With the other reviewers here, I think this is the best -- and honestly the most thrilling -- book on the subject I've yet read.

I have been waiting for a serious book about UFOs that just goes ahead and takes for granted the reality of the phenomenon and moves forward from there. Once you've looked at the evidence compiled and presented by serious UFO researchers -- and there are now plenty of sources for this evidence (not just Dolan's previous works, also Leslie Kean's new book, James Fox's documentaries, Jacques Vallee's many great books, etc.) -- there's no longer any doubt that UFOs are real, so why not just proceed on that assumption? This is, to my knowledge, the first book by serious researchers that does that.

Reading A.D., I realized how basically defensive most books and documentaries on UFOs have been -- and really, have had to be -- up until now. They have had to try and convince you by showing you evidence, or at least persuade you to maintain an open mind. The confidence Dolan and his coauthor Bryce Zabel project is a refreshing step forward. They no longer need to persuade. They are able, at this point, to address their readers as a community of intelligent people whose minds are already well open to the reality and significance of the subject, and are ready, as I said, to proceed. Proceed to where? That's what this book is about. Read it.

Some day disclosure is going to happen. Maybe not in my lifetime, but who knows?

Ever wonder what it would be like? Richard Dolan and Bryce Zabel probably have your answer. I have thought about it quite a lot over the years and believed that I had it all figured out; well, until I read this book. There are many details of disclosure that just hadn't crossed my mind.

This is not just a book for those who are knowledgeable about UFOlogy or familiar with the Disclosure Movement. It also includes background on many prominent cases and other important aspects of UFOlogical History. I think that someone who has very little or no knowledge of UFOlogy would just as easily be able to comprehend the information in this book as someone well acquainted with the subject.

The type of disclosure discussed in this book is the real thing: not some government releasing a few sightings reports and not some fictional television show that certain people in UFOlogy may claim is factual and therefore disclosure. This disclosure is the governments of the world coming out and admitting that there are visitors to earth from elsewhere. Maybe it isn't (or won't be) full disclosure of everything the government may know about these visitors, but certainly just the admission that they exist and have been visiting earth would be enough to send shock-waves throughout the world.

One of the things I had never thought of in my own disclosure scenario was runs on the grocery stores and hoarding of food and other essentials. At first, that strikes me as far too extreme a reaction, but then again, to those of us inside the UFOlogy bubble it is simply confirmation of what we already know.
