This is one of the better ones.
Hottie Pepper
Many interesting cases are documented back to the 19th Century including many that are becoming forgotten today.

I have read most if not all of his books, and this is one to add to those one collection.

First of all, what's wrong with trying to sell books by writing material of interest to the intended audience? That's what all authors do.

Second, this was one of many books written about UFOs during the sixties and certainly is one of the better ones. Edwards tends to just present the facts of the cases as he knows them and leaves out all the mystical mumbo jumbo present in many other author's UFO books.

It's up to the reader to decide whether he wants to accept any of the cases as possible genuine evidence of an extraterrestial presence, but in any case it's a fun read which allows for some moments of suspension of disbelief. Besides, how often do you get a chance to buy a book for one penney?

I found this book at a library sale for 10 cents. And, I was quite impressed with the book. Edwards presents the case for UFOs and he does it based on facts from the Air Force, newspapers, and eye witness accounts. He doesn't speculate as to what the UFOs are - he lets the facts speak for themselves as they are presented. As a result, his material appears to be well founded and his writing style is very readable. Certainly a thought provoking book!

The title "Flying Saucers - Serious business" is from an Air Force order issued to all Air Force personal on 12/24/1959. This is a very important book. The author Frank Edwards (a hugely popular journalist and radio personality) collected the information in this book until published in 1966. Here are the accounts early in the US Governments cover up with details on how UFO censorship changed over time. Many interesting cases are documented back to the 19th Century including many that are becoming forgotten today.

What stands out is how much UFO activity there has been in this century, especially since the 1940s. Some major cases today (Roswell and Kecksberg) are only mentioned in passing while other nearly forgotten cases are detailed. This book is a UFO research missing link because it was written so much closer in time to the major UFO events from the 1940s to the 1960s by a man that spent much of his life collecting the evidence.

Flying Saucers - Serious Business is a fun and entertaining read, complete with pictures. Clear, concise reading that tackles specific incidents in history, such as the Brazil 1954 incident, power blackouts in the Southwest in 1965, etc. Interesting read!

Author wrote this book following his "Flying Saucers - Serious Business" stating new evidence and new photographs, that is, cases that occurred during 1966 and 1967. The attempt is to let the cases speak for themselves. I have read most if not all of his books, and this is one to add to those one collection. Mr. Frank Edwards' book all let me with the impression to continue our search for the evidence and facts in each one of his cases, whether it be related to Flying Saucers or strange people or worlds. The truth is out there!

Format: Paperback
I ordered this book thru a book club when I was 12 back in '67. It certainly intrigued me to say the least, with all the photos and eyewitness accounts given therein. This was one of several I read on the topic. Edwards attributes UFO activity to other unexplained occurances such tv broadcasts from an off-the-air station reappearing years later.
If you are into interesting accounts of the bizarre, you will find this book chock full of them. One thing I want to assure you of, I am not one of those looking to the 'space brothers' to arrive here to help usher in a 'golden age' utopia, from some supposed celestial messiahs.
