4.0 out of 5 stars A Fascinating Biography and Resume of a Famed UFOlogist, August 20, 2006
This review is from: UFO Testament: Anatomy of an Abductee (Paperback)
Ray Fowler seems like the type of man I'd feel very comfortable sitting down to dinner with; even more comfortable than even Whitley Strieber, of whom I am a huge fan. Ray has no pretensions or knee-jerk emotional reactions to things like Mr. Strieber, who has a checkered relationship with the media. Ray tells it like it is, DESPITE THE FACT that, unlike Mr. Strieber, he is ABSOLUTELY NO SUPPORT FROM HIS OWN FAMILY. They are fundamentalist Christians who feel their own husband/father is being attacked by "demons." His own daughter won't allow his grandchildren to visit them at his home. A pity, because he had previously agreed not to discuss his interests with them. The book is fascinating! It details Mr. Fowler's entiring career as a UFOlogist, beginning with his initial big break working for J. Allen Hynek. With great humor and humility, Fowler summarizes some of his greatest cases, including the Beverly, MA sightings in 1966, and of course his ground-breaking work with Betty Andreasson Luca. Best of all, he tells of how he came to terms with the unsettling realization that he himself was an abductee, going back to childhood! This is a good "beginner" book for the works of Ray Fowler, sort of a "Cliff Notes." Then you can go back and get the individual works, starting with "UFOs: Interplantary Visitors" and work your way up from there. You won't be dissapointed.
