John G. Fuller, who died in 1990, was a regular columnist for the "Saturday Review" magazine. In the mid-1960's he personally investigated and wrote two separate books on two of the most famous UFO incidents in American history. Both books were bestsellers and both were given considerable publicity because they were written not by some "lunatic" UFO "nut", but rather by a respected and well-known reporter who wrote seriously about UFOs. This reprint combines both books into a single volume and should be considered a "must" for any serious student of ufology.

The first book, "Incident at Exeter", describes a series of fantastic UFO sightings in the small city of Exeter, New Hampshire in the fall of 1965. It all began when Norman Muscarello, a local boy and recent high school graduate, was hitchhiking home along a quiet rural highway outside of town. At around 2:30 am Muscarello was shocked when a large object which gave off an intense red glow rose up from some nearby woods and moved towards him. He banged on the door of a nearby house but there was no answer (the family who owned the farm were not at home at the time), meanwhile farm animals nearby were kicking in their stalls and making loud, frightened noises. The object eventually flew back over the woods, Muscarello caught a car and, badly frightened, made his way to the Exeter police department. He convinced two policemen to return with him to the farm, and this time all three men saw the UFO at close range. Their stories were given national publicity and soon others in the Exeter area were reporting similar objects in the night sky.

Okay, I have a soft spot in my heart for Incident at Exeter (that's in New Hampshire) because I was born there in 1957, the time period covered here. Fuller's work provides a nice window into the 50-60's era of UFOology, before we were paranoid and weirded out by the X-Files et al. At some times these works may seem naively tame, at others just innocently silly, and I suppose that if you are a True Believer, these should be required reading as among the first works to take a look at UFO sightings through a reasonably legit lens, rather than scribblings from the lunatic fringe.

Both of these books are fascinating, and certainly anyone interested in this subject should have this double volume in their permanent library. Though both works were originally published in the mid-60's, they laid a solid groundwork for the more full-bodied research to come. I found the transcripts of the Hills' hypnosis sessions ('The Interrupted Journey') almost unbearably eerie, and couldn't put the book down once I began reading the actual transcripts.
Perhaps the books are a bit dry, as one reviewer mentioned, though personally I prefer the no-nonsense, just-the-facts-ma'am reportage, and find Fuller's style quite refreshing. None of the new-agey nonsense (which has creeped into these discussions at an accelerated rate lately) is to be found, which I appreciated. After reading these volumes, do I believe the Hills, and the residents of Exeter? Yeah, I must say that I do.

Straight-forward and without frills? Yes. Boring? Absolutely not. These are groundbreaking works, and I devoured this double volume in just a couple of sittings. Great stuff, highly recommended.

I picked this book up when I saw it because I live in the Exeter NH area. This book is essentially two books, the first; The Incident at Exeter is about the multiple UFO sightings in the south east of New Hampshire. The second, The Interrupted Journey is the famous case of Betty and Barney Hill, the first documented account of UFO abduction. I did enjoy both books, both were quite interesting but the style left it a bit dry and tedious to read. The Incident at Exeter was the better of the two; it seemed to move at a better pace. All the accounts of the sightings were well researched and quite interesting that so many people from so many walks of life could see and describe the same exact thing, and yet the Air Force could uniformly give the most implausible and ridiculous explanations for it all. The Interrupted Journey is mostly transcripts from a psychologist who hypnotized the Hills who could not remember 2 hours of their drive home after sighting a UFO. It was interesting following the Hill's repressed memories coming out, but I found this tough to plow through. Over all, not a bad read at all but far from perfect. I do recommend this book to any UFO buff or New Englander's interested in the unexplained phenomenon in their own back yard.

I chose a 5 out of 5 due to how fast I received this item and the quality of it, almost brand new. White pages, no marks or tears great condition.

I like how fast I got the item, and the quality of it. The book itself is a good read, well researched and told in a almost plot driven investigation type of way.

I would recommend this book to all people interested in true blue, non kook or sensationalist UFO stories, ones that actually happened. "Incident at Exeter" and "The interupted Journey" is one of the best books on the subject of UFOs.
