Like a significant minority of abductees, Huggins has good conscious recall.

Format: Paperback
The 80s is when the alien abduction phenomena really burst into the limelight to stay. While its true that for a short while the Betty and Barney Hill case fascinated the world (and with recent books such as Encounters at Indian Head: The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Abduction Revisited and Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience: The True Story of the World's First Documented Alien Abduction still fascinates many), it was thought that if true,the Hill case was a one time affair of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. But in February of 1987 when Communion: A True Story was released, it described not one encounter but a series of hidden encounters. This revelation of a secret life full of being taken and experimented on was new to the public and it didn't take long for Communion to reach #1 on the NY Times Bestseller List. Communion and other books such as Intruders: The Incredible Visitations at Copley Woods that brought to light a second hidden life stuck a cord in many people across the world who felt they may be also victims of alien abduction. Many started to question certain events in their life, a tell tale sign of abduction being "missing time" or a weird unexplainable scar.Read more ›

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I began reading books on the subject of UFO's and aliens in the mid-sixties and have followed the formulation of the "we are not alone" in the universe scenario from its humble beginnings. As one would expect from any new field of study the early UFO enthusiast initially desired acceptance and respectability from both the academic community and the public-at-large. This meant they had to produce hard physical evidence for their claims which then had to be analyzed and interpreted through the lens of the sacred cow of the twentieth century, the scientific method. So the search for spacecraft and its occupants began along with the hasty development of whatever theories necessary to support claims of extraterrestrial visitation and involvement on planet Earth. However with the passing of time and the amount of published material multiplying there has been an undeniable shift in focus from the original premise of Ufology. For lack of better terminology I'd call it a shift from 'hardware to software'. The days of pursuing concrete answers to the UFO - Alien phenomenon via conventional nuts and bolts methodology have apparently come to an end. The efforts to replicate the design and engineering of alien craft, mathematically resolving distance, energy and time problems and searching the skies for probable planets that could sustain advanced life forms have been brushed aside. The metaphorical ship has changed course and sailed off in a different direction for destinations unknown.

Within the last twenty-five years or so, bolstered to a great extent by the works of Whitley Streiber, the ET hypothesis has evolved into an ever darkening inter-dimensional mysticism comprised of runic crop circles, human abductions and cattle mutilations.

Format: Paperback
The remarkable paintings (the `fantastic' in the book's title is certainly warranted) of New-Jersey artist David Huggins have finally been brought to a wider public audience thanks to the efforts of Farah Yurdozu, who has published this most unusual illustrated book. In the introduction, Yurdozu writes:

"When I saw David's paintings I immediately recognised the familiar abduction-contact pattern that is typical of UFO lore. David's paintings show someone who was being visited by the grays and hybrids all his life, with contact continuing to the present day. They are works which inspire awe in some, scepticism in others...whether or not the viewer believes his paintings are based on concrete, physical reality, they do represent David's personal reality...what is certain is that David Huggins is sincere. He doesn't need people to believe, and he understands that many simply don't. `When you know something you know it, and these paintings are the result, and whatever you think is what you think.'"

So, there you have it. Huggins' paintings depict his interaction with non-human entities from his childhood in rural Georgia in the early 1950s, right up to the present day. They deviate somewhat from the standard abductee narrative where sperm is harvested mechanically to be used in the creation of hybrid children, in that Huggins depicts constant sexual interaction with hybrid females- one in particular, whom he refers to as `Crescent' - in order to produce offspring. Warning: some of the images are what we might call `X-Rated' (`R'-rated in the USA)!

Huggins is a competent artist, and most of the 66 pages of this large-format soft-cover book are used as a gallery to display his paintings. Like a significant minority of abductees, Huggins has good conscious recall.
