This collection of articles from the Skeptical Inquirer examines the UFO phenomenon in a critical and conventional light. As one might expect, the Roswell UFO crash is found to be a weather balloon; the Fox-TV "alien autopsy" is a crude hoax (no surprise here to anyone who has seen it); famous UFO sightings are really space debris, meteors, reflections, hoaxes, and media exaggerations; alien abductions are all constructs of space-obsessed fantasies; and crop circles are prankster-produced graffiti in the grain. Much of what the authors say here is both valid and true. However, there is also a strong tendency to pick easy targets and to make dubious generalizations that will infuriate UFO proponents. An adequate but fallible counterbalance to pro-UFO literature. George Eberhart
