It is surprising in this day and age that the field of UFOlogy is still afforded such scant respect by members of the mainstream scientific community, as well as, the public at large. It is even more surprising when one considers the bizarre theoretical realms and possibilities that are currently being given serious attention in such areas as quantum physics and hyperdimensional theory, to name but a few. A modest investigation of UFOlogy will reveal an enormous volume of high quality, well researched material, stretching back more than half a century. And that is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. The "contactee" movement is one of the most provacative, yet, little known periods of American culture and history. It was in the wake of the great waves of UFOs reported around the U.S. in the first years of the 1950's that the contactees came. Ranging from opportunistic charlatans and crackpots to deeply earnest men with much to lose and little to gain, a small handful of individuals unabashedly claimed to have not only seen flying saucers but met their alien occupants. They'd been taken onboard craft and engaged the benevolent extraterrestrials in extensive metaphysical colloquies, while enjoying dizzying tours of our solar system and other planets beyond. Upon their safe return, they were changed men with portents of man's potential doom in the form of nuclear holocaust, and messages of great love and hope from the aptly named "Space Brothers". If this all sounds like so much bad 50's B-movie sci-fi, it is, and that's because Life and Art have always imitated one another. But that "golly gee willickers" kitschy quality is a major part of the contactee movement's appeal.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
While working as a test engineer at White Sands Proving Ground in 1950, Daniel Fry witnesses a flying saucer land. He is invited aboard for a brief flight. He learns about alien concerns and a little about alien technology. The book contains a reasonable description of what it might be like to fly on a machine propelled by gravity manipulation. In his recent book ALIEN BASE Timothy Good tells us he spent a week with Fry and his wife and believes the story to be essentially true. Also in this volume is an 85 page document entitled an Extraterrestial Statement, which was previously published as "A Spacewoman Speaks". I would like to know a lot more about the origins of this work. If you find it at all credible, it becomes the most profound part of the book. It discusses human origins, technology in a multidimensional universe, ethics (their version of the "prime directive"), religion and their concerns that nuclear war will destroy life on earth. It is claimed that the asteroid belt is the remains of a planet destroyed by its warlike civilization. Otherwise, the ideas are surprisingly compatible with writers such as Sitchin, Bramley and Buhlman -- though its 1960 copyright date predates these similar works.

This book is plain amazing.It explains in a very logical simple and understandable way science,paranormal or previosly not nown concepts related to UFO`s or Einsteins general relativity.It was written in the 50`s when UFO where called Flying Saucers, that means this guy sets himself away from all this crap of "new era" imaginery,charlatans and swindlers.

I cannot recommend this Book strong enough..it can change the way you conceive the world.

Format: Paperback
There is this stereotype that is sometimes promoted about the 1950s which is simply not true. Soldiers and refugees from the Second World War were buying homes and in the midst of having the Baby Boom Generation. Any talk of atomic threats is simply wishful or sloppy thinking. Not until 1957 did the Russians launch Sputnik. Then it was time to be concerned about warheads. George Adamski's first book was released in 1953. The Korean 'police action' was over.

It should be obvious to anyone who has studied the period 1947 to 1957. There was intense interest in flying saucers but official denials and even ridicule of eyewitnesses. No antiaircraft artillery appeared around major cities. The so-called contactees and the messages they received were scrutinized by the FBI. The 'aliens' involved went through a bizarre transformation as the years passed, going from blonde Nordic types to end up as four foot tall humanoids with oversized, egg-shaped heads. The later contactee books showed alien behavior that was bizarre and inexplicable as opposed to the more easy to relate to "Space Brothers."

Whatever Mr. Fry was involved in may never be known. This book is part of a larger puzzle that does not fit in with the known observations of unidentified aircraft that remain so till this day. It is a window on a period of time where, in my view, it was necessary to cloud the physical reality of these objects in an otherworldly frame of reference.

My wife's grandmother recommended this book to me. It actually contains two stories by two different authors. I am only commenting on the White Sands Incident by Daniel Fry. My wife's G-ma knew him back in the 50s and 60s and believed his story. Therefore, I put a lot of stock into it's legitimacy. Definitely worth a read - and decide for yourself!
