"An Alien Harvest, told by Linda Howe, is as intriguing and absorbing as a good spy novel. She has had the energy and guts to pursue her field work. It is a compilation of challenging data. The issues it raises should concern all of us." - Jacques Vallee, Computer Scientist and author of Dimensions and Anatomy of A Phenomenon

`Strange Harvest' was subsequently purchased by HBO and screened nationwide in 1982. Following the broadcast and the public stir it caused, LMH was contacted by Richard Doty from AFOSI at Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque who, during a series of meetings and phone calls, gave her the run-around by promising genuine film footage of crashed and recovered ET vehicles, dead and autopsied alien bodies and even a live alien to be used in a planned film which HBO had agreed to finance. At KAB she was given documents to read which purported to be a Presidential briefing but was allowed no copies, nor allowed to take notes. This, dear readers, was a classic disinformation campaign to kill the story by contamination but Linda did not - at the time - see what was being done and how. She was strung along until the offer from HBO was finally rescinded, the story died away and, of course, the promised film footage from the Air Force never materialised.
This substantial book, which had six printings between 1990 and 2000, is the story of how all this unfolded and a summary of evidence about the phenomenon itself as the author perceived it in 1990. In the foreword, Jacques Vallee (who, with Barbara Bartholic, personally went out into the field to investigate a large number of mutilated animals) writes "...Linda Howe is not simply fulfilling her role as an investigative journalist when she asks these questions; she is also performing an important service on behalf of the American public."
The book's title of course echoes the original TV documentary and includes a long first section detailing the mutilations, their geographical spread, interviews with ranchers and law enforcement officials and facsimiles of newspaper reports about the phenomenon. The writing and organization of material is exemplary, with plenty of thoroughly researched detail which will leave the skeptical reader in no doubt that this is a very real, persistent and disturbing issue which has nothing to do with any human agency.
Unfortunately the train then leaves the tracks for a while as LMH, in all innocence and eager to take on board any seemingly credible `insider' sources to gain enlightenment about the subject, gives credence to the extensive disinformation dished out by Doty and co and to the notorious MJ-12 hoax. A long chapter is devoted to promoting the fabrications of the late plagiarist, pathological liar and fantasist, William Cooper (who died in November 2001 after he shot a County Sheriff's deputy in the head and was in turn gunned down by other officers). This lets down the book somewhat, but at the time a lot of people in the field were taken in by these characters so LMH was not alone.
The appendices run to more than 200 pages. 73 pages are devoted to the full transcripts of regression hypnosis sessions run by Dr. Leo Sprinkle of the University of Wyoming with Judy Doraty and with the mother and son involved in the Cimarron NM abduction case. There are transcripts of radio interviews, newspaper cuttings, images, and a sizeable bibliography for reference.
The book is physically quite large at 28cm x 21cm, and runs to 450 pages. It is, however, something of a classic of the field and despite the questionable value of some sections (i.e. those devoted to Doty and Cooper) overall it's very informative, a gold mine of sound information and solid reference material. This author, despite an uneven history of promoting often questionable ideas in recent years, has earned eternal credit for bringing the animal mutilation issue to public attention with such a thorough and rigorous examination of the facts leading to a most disturbing conclusion.
why mutilate other animals?
the chapters .
But, we can't just take the words of ANY of these beings at face value, not even the C's. Somehow, there has to be a way to the center of the maze and back out again.
Yes, what the Cassiopaean's say DOES tend to be confirmed by this amazing and thorough research... yes, it does SEEM to make sense of it ... BUT, could it be more of the "mind manipulation" ? And, if so, is it due to just simple "overlay" of mental controls, or actual "time travel" to "set things up" so that the information SEEMS to be confirmed????
And, on the other hand, if it is due to time travel manipulations of history and so forth, then the picture is still somewhat bleak - only we have a couple of things that may be in our favor... the STS tendency to take the path of least resistance and "laziness," and the "wishful thinking."
Now, if any of you decide to get these books, let me warn you that they are FULL of photographs that are pretty grim and disturbing. They are also full of photos of actual military documents released through the FOIA and others that were obtained by other less standard means. There are complete transcripts of interviews and a few "hypnosis sessions," and so forth.
Colin Wilson wrote the forward, in which he says: "I have never read a book that excited such a powerful series of reactions in me. Again and again, I found myself thinking: 'If this is true, then we are all asleep. Something tremendous is going on, something that is going to affect every human being on this planet sooner or later, and we still go on living as if we were in the comfortable security of the Victorian age.'
"The question that keeps returning to me is: Why, if all of this is true - or only half true - can so many people ignore it? Why have skeptics such as writere Philip Klass and the late astronomer Carl Sagan asserted that UFO's are some kind of hysterical delusion?
"The answer to that question, I have concluded, is that we all need a sense of security, the feeling that we can get on with our lives without too much anxiety. So, we tend to ignore things that do not immediately affect us.
"If you take these cases individually, each one can be subjected to skeptical analysis and, if not dismissed, at least reduced to a minus on the credibility scale. [...] But once the total picture is grasped, it is overwhelming. Nitpicking criticism leaves it unaffected. And that total picture tells us that something very strange is going on, and very important. [...] "There are certain things that I find very hard to accept. For example, the notion that the aliens can travel backwards in time. It has always seemed to me that time travel is an impossibility. It would involve obvious paradoxes... "Like Linda Moulton Howe, Jacques Vallee and John Keel and everyone else who has studied the UFO phenomenon, I find myself trying to formulate a general theory that encompasses a mass of utterly confusing and contradictory information. [...]
"When I try to look at the whole phenomenon, I come back to my most basic intuition which has been at the heart of all my work since 'The Outsider' in 1956: that there is something oddly wrong with human consciousness. Although we have evolved further than any other animal on the face of the earth, it is at the cost of an absurd narrowness which means that we look at reality throught the long end of a telescope, failing to see the wood or even leaves because we can only focus on individual trees. Our evolution in the past twenty-five thousand years has been incredible, yet it has been largely wasted in the sense that we take it for granted and go plodding on dully. We see the world from a worm's eye view, when we urgently need a bird's eye view.
"Studying the UFO phenomenon, particularly as it is expressed in Linda's books, has made me clearly aware of one thing that I had formerly grasped only vaguely: that, far from being the most intelligent species in the universe, human beings are not really so far ahead of the cows who graze in our meadows. [...] Our greatest need at this point in our evolution is to change our intellectual viewpoint - to recognize that we are not alone in the universe and that we ought to be making far more vigorous use of the intelligence we DO possess. Our narrowness hypnotizes us into passivity. [...] "The UFO phenomenon is gradually forcing us to accept that there ARE other realities and dimensions, and that we cannot continue living like cows ruminating in a field. ... what is now happening is demanding out attention with a persistence that cannot be ignored and will become more persistent until it gets our full attention.
"For anyone who has so far managed to sleep through the increasing furor about UFOs, I cannot recommend a better alarm clock that Linda Moulton Howe's book."
And, I have to say "amen!" to that!
It's easy to fluff off the Cassioipaean's because, after all, it IS channeled and highly suspect. But, you can't go through page after page of photographs that have not been published in other media, to SEE the evidence, to see the documents, to hear the stories directly (in print)... and NOT realize that something is going on here that we really need to get a handle on.
But it takes work and committment... not a job for crybabies, either. There is NO FREE LUNCH in the universe... no "salvation" without WORK! And, in the case of what is ahead for us, or even all around us and ever present, either one wakes up and works, or they ARE LUNCH!
