More About the Author

Since 1992, Christopher O'Brien has investigated over one thousand paranormal events reported in the San Luis Valley--located in South-central Colorado/North Central New Mexico. Working with law enforcement officials, ex-military, ranchers and an extensive network of skywatchers, from 1992 to 2002 he documented one of the most intense waves of unexplained activity ever reported from a single geographic region of North America. His ten-year investigation resulted in the three books of his "mysterious valley" trilogy, The Mysterious Valley, Enter the Valley, and Secrets of the Mysterious Valley. His meticulous field investigation of UFO reports, unexplained livestock deaths, Native American legends, cryptozoology, secret military activity and the folklore, found in the world's largest alpine valley, has produced one of the largest databases of unusual occurrences gathered from a single geographic region. He is currently working with a team of specialists installing a high-tech video surveillance and hard-data monitoring system in and around the San Luis Valley. His latest book Stalking the Tricksters has been released by Adventures Unlimited Press. This controversial book distills his years of field investigation and research into an ingenious unified paranormal theory that is sure to create intense interest and controversy.

This a great collection of well-researched stories about the mysterious San Luis Valley situated mainly in South Central Colorado. Secret military bases, UFO sightings, and encounters with all manner of strange creatures are some of the subjects covered. Some of stories are just bizarre while a few are genuinely frightening. Each story has ample information produced in the form of eye witness accounts or historical documents to ensure this stuff isn't just being made up. Mr. O'Brien has a no-nonsense, unbiased approach to his research, which is a refreshing change from most books or media of this type and subject matter. A fascinating read.

I heard about the books written about the San Luis Valley in Colorado. I grew up there and was absent when all these mysterious episodes took place so naturally when I found out about the books, WOW.

I liked this book and think you will too. Not as good as his first but still interesting and worth while... Why? Because this man, unlike most other UFO writers actually got out on the ground and did 1000 hours ++ investigation --- and then wrote it up for us to read. Buy it! It is a good value, definitely one of the better books out there.

The subject is well researched and presented in a format that draws the reader in. We are presented with reports which are reviewed in an open ended style. The author says something "wonderfull and mysterious is happening" in the region. I'm not sure if I agree that cattle and possible human mutilations are "wonderful" events, but the subject matter cannot be ignored. Compelling enugh to have persuaded a trio of us to plan a trip and "Enter The Valley" this summer for ourselves. Dan
