Editorial Reviews

Review

"I applaud the authors' cross-cultural approach to investigating possible Martian archaeological sites. By suggesting that a priror technological civilization might have been driven by aesthetic agenda, The Cydonia Codex offers a new arena for speculation--which is precisely what's needed to further the investigative process."
-Mac Tonnies, author of After the Martian Apocalypse: Extraterrestrial Artifacts and the Case for Mars Exploration

"This book gives unique insight into the many questions surrounding man's origins and in my mind establishes stunning evidence for a direct connection between us and a forgotten culture found on the planet Mars."
-Jim Miller, founder of the Mars research group Anomaly Hunters

"The authors have obviously done a great deal of research not only into the Martian structures but also into ancient Mesoamerican and other cultures and have shown how the images from Mars are repeated in the religious and cultural artifacts from those ancient civilizations. The information is well laid out and overall an excellent informative work."
-Shane Bowden, geologist in Alberta, Canada

George J. Haas is founder and premier investigator of The Cydonia Institute, established in 1991. He is a member of the Archaeological Institute of America and the Pre-Columbian Society of the University of Pennsylvania. Mr. Haas is also an artist, art instructor, writer, and curator. He is a member and former director of the Sculptors' Association of New Jersey. He has also authored monographs for various art exhibitions, and had a one-man show at the OK Harris Gallery of Art in New York City. He became interested in the "Face on Mars" after reading a book on the subject by Randolfo Rafael Pozos in 1991. He lives in New Jersey with his wife, Dr. Amelia Joy Cole; he has three daughters.

William R. Saunders graduated from the University of Alberta in Edmonton in 1977 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Geomorphology. He began work in the petroleum industry in Calgary, Alberta in 1978 and currently works as a petroleum geoscience consultant in Calgary. He was reintroduced to the "Face on Mars" in 1991 by Richard Hoagland's book, The Monuments of Mars. He began looking at the Mars Global Surveyor images on NASA's web site with their first release in April of 1998. He met George Haas on a web-site discussion group shortly thereafter.

Foreword writer Richard C. Hoagland has been a NASA consultant and Science Advisor to Walter Cronkite and CBS News. In 1993 he won the Angstrom Medal for Excellence in Science. He is the author of The Monuments of Mars: A City on the Edge of Forever (Frog, Ltd., 2001).

In May of 2001, high-resolution imagery of the famous "Face on Mars," taken by the Mars Global Suveryor satellite, was finally released, confirming a well documented decade-old prediction made by Richard C. Hoagland that the Face on Mars (which NASA keeps insisting has been disproven by study to be more than a "trick of light and shadow," but when pressed to actually name a single study, cannot) is a deliberately asymmetrical artform, composed of distinct hominid or humanoid, and feline, halves. In spite of a tendency for early Cydonia researchers to cite parallels to Egyptian culture in a singularly dramatic pyramid and a "Martian Sphinx" in the form of The Face, perhaps the best parallel that can be drawn, in part, is to the extensive use of asymmetry and feline motifs in ancient Mesoamerican art.
From a stone cousin of Ohio's Great Serpent Mound in at Loch Nell in Scotland, to the extensive earthworks of the Great Lakes Region, to enormous effigies and intaglios of humans and animals in the Southwest to South America, mankind has devoted great energy to creating nearly countless large scale artworks that are by far best appreciated from aerial views, and unless we accept astral projection on the basis of ancedotal evidence and on top that, the notion that shamans flying "out of body" actually required such artworks as the landmarks for their astral navigation, the purpose and intent of these artworks remains very much a mystery. In the premise that their purpose is somehow kindred to the surmised and rigorously examined purpose of engimatic landforms of Cydonia, may yet lie the most plausible sort of reason for the existance of these artworks- these "geoglyphs"- on both worlds.

I found this Adobe Reader, CD ROM book to be easy to use, very well written, and beautifully illustrated. The book features forwards by two of the "pillars" of Martian anomaly research, Richard Hoagland and Dr. Mark Carlotto, both of whom have also written books about the Face on Mars. If that isn't enough to get your attention, the book also has Keith Laney's enhancements of NASA photographs, which are of the highest quality. It is no wonder NASA has decided to make Laney one of their own and now use his work in their own research and publications. In my opinion Mr. Leney's enhancement of the 2001 image of the Face on Mars is surely a national treasure. One look at this image and you'll be convinced that the Face on Mars is real. If Mr Laney has any influence over at NASA/JPL, maybe he can open the door and tell NASA they need to read this book.
Moving on to the illustrations, Haas' drawings are fine but, the use of famous Mayanist Linda Schele's drawings as comparative source material was surprising; however the correlation between the Mesoamerican and Martian inscriptions that they support are truly amazing. Throughout the book the authors present a highly probable hypothesis that there was once a highly evolved civilization that left a codex of pictographic structures on Mars and through an amazing display of side by side comparisons they trace the source of these images all the way back to earth. The book also touches on a connection between the mythologies of the Sumerians and Asians with those of Mesoamerica. The most astonishing thing is that the authors of The Cydonia Codex not only reveal the Face on Mars to be a gigantic two-faced geoglyph, of a human and feline mask, they provide overwhelming evidence that it's related to a two-faced style that was utilized by the ancient Maya.

When I first got this book it was to read more about the faces that have been seen on Mars. The authors have done an excellent job of identifing and describing not only the faces but numerous other structures that I wasn't aware even existed. I think if someone was only interested in the Face on Mars the book is well worth it. What I found really fascinating however was the connection between the images seen on Mars and the images found in ancient cultures here on earth. The authors have obviously done a great deal of research not only into the Martian structures but also into ancient Mesoamerican, Egyptian and other cultures and have shown how the images from Mars are repeated in the religous and cultural artifacts from those ancient civilizations. Its very thought provoking.
If I have any criticism its that the authors sometimes delve too deeply into some of the details regarding the ancient civilizations, however I'm sure that a reader who has an interest or some knowledge of that subject or is hungry for more information will appreciate the detailed work that they have done.
The information is well laid out and while the authors resist forming a conclusion the reader can judge for themselves how it all ties together.
All in all an excellent informative work. I hope they do a follow up book.

This book looks at the mysteries of the Maya civilization and proposes a connection to monuments and geoglyphs found on Mars. Regardless of what you might currently believe about the possibility of the existance of ancient civilizations here on Earth or on other worlds and their possible interactions, this book gives solid theories and backs them up with images provided directly by NASAs current orbiting satellites.
At the least this book is a great lesson in Maya history and culture at the best it is a difinitive explanation for the connections between ancient civilizations and the origins of our own modern times.
