The amazing Projekt Saucer books are the most fascinating story ever writen about flying saucers. The whole story consist in five books : Book 1 INCEPTION (1991), Book 2 PHOENIX (1995), Book 3 GENESIS (1980), Book 4 MILLENIUM (1995), Book 5 RESURRECTION (1999). Just like George Lucas, Harbinson wrote Eposide 3 first, in 1980, and then the others. If you want to read just one book, read this one, GENESIS. Those books are quite hard to find, but they are all available on website. These five books, representing about 3000 pages written over 20 years are a must-read foranyone interested in flying saucers.

I read this book as a young man (at the time quite fond of science fiction) shortly after it was first published. I remember that at the time it seemed to be a 'hard read' and difficult to stay interested in. I recall that only the subject matter kept me plodding through until the ending. Years later I would remember the central concepts fondly, although I had forgotten the author's name and title.

I finally decided now, in the early years of the 21st Century, so figure out if the book was really that bad, or if my relative youth during that first reading was to blame. After some Googling on the recalled subject matter, I decided that the book must be Genesis by Harbinson. I got a copy for my Kindle and dove in.

Within the first few pages, I realized that my general dislike of the book back then was not due to my youth. It is quite simply a poorly written piece of literature. However, the central conceit remains strong and engaging. It is just too bad that the man who did the 'research' and put the story together does not happen to have the skill or talent one expects from a good author.

My major issues with Harbinson's writing 'style' are listed below:

- Boring structure, word use and syntax. In an opening passage about an encounter of a US Army bomber over WWII Germany, it seems like all statements issued by crew members are followed with the descriptive, "he bawled". For example (and with paraphrasing on my part); "We're all gonna die", bawled the captain. "They're coming at us again", bawled the waist gunner. "Aaiiieee", bawled the nose gunner. It really does read like that. While descriptive the first time it is used, it grows noticeable and tiresome after the first couple repetitions. Skilled authors know how to avoid this kind of thing.

If you are a follower of UFO lore and reports, this is a fascinating book. Considering when this book was written, it takes many of the "actual reported" UFO cases through history, weaves them into a spellbinding plot, and comes up with a surprisingly contemporary conclusion. It has all the elements of good adventure tales; a tenacious hero determined to find the truth, secret government agents, global conspiracy, and of course UFOs.

I discovered this book when it first came out and fell in love with it. Can't tell you how many times I've read it. Went out and found the other 4 books of the series although only 3 of the series is available on Kindle. It was written and released in full in Britain but not here in North America.

I have read this book twice in the past, both times in paperback verssion. I loved it! I recently bought it for my Kindle and was very disappointed when I began reading it. It is obvious the publisher only used a spell check program on the book and didn't have someone actually read it. Dropped words. Repeated words. Wrong words (can you say autocorrect?).

All of these errors are very distracting and break the flow of the story when you have to try to figure out what word is missing, or what the word should really be.

Did I mention I am only on chapter 4?

I am very disappointed in the quality of this book.

That dovetails with enough truths to lend credence and food for thought in current times. German ingenuity (historically) is without dispute and give one pause in terms of Antarctica (perhaps having the coldest temperatures on Earth yet larger in size than the US and Mexico combined) and corresponding myths. Also without doubt are serious concerns on the part of the UK and US in terms of alleged UFO sightings and public awareness in the 40s, 50s, and ever since. Dissolving truths and falsehood into public policy has always been tilted toward secrecy and profitability, but the coming days and years may dictate otherwise. And rightly so.

This was just a damn good story!
Well written, hard to put down, amazingly original given the subject matter and it wrapped up in a very satisfactory manner.
Of all the price 'O crap books that get turned in to screenplays, you finish this and wonder why no studio picked it up.

I first read this book twenty odd years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it . . . saw it in the Kindle store, bought it, and enjoyed it just as much the second time round.

Harbinson writes a great UFO story based on his extensive archival research, and the whole premise of the novel will thrill the conspiracy theorist in you. If words like "UFO" and "conspiracy" get your mind working, grab this one . . . and wonder, "what if"
