I read his book on the MIBs and chuckled. "Get off it, man!" said I to him said I. "Do you really think I'm gonna fall for this paranoid BS? You'll have to do better than THIS to scare me!"
OK. I am officially scared to death.
This book has totally freaked me out!
I know about "melting men". I have seen X THE UNKNOWN] ]with Dean Jagger (forever beloved to MY generation as the school Principal on MR. NOVAK). I have watched [[ASIN:B00LTMHXNA The Blob and Caltiki, the Immortal Monster [Region 2] in action.
I refuse to even DISCUSS the other chapters in the book.
The fates of Uncle Morrie Jessup (a regular on Long John Nebel's show and the man who introduced us to that experiment in Philadelphia) or what the dangers of Bosco The Original Bosco Chocolate Syrup - 22 oz Squeeze Bottle all nature REALLY are.
No...I won't talk about those things....
I will say that we have known about Nina Kulagina's power to kill with psychic force since the 1960s anyway. This information formed the inspiration for the beloved film THE POWER The Power (Remaster) starring George Hamilton and Michael Rennie.
Where you been, Nick?
Nick, I am afraid to go to sleep thanks to you!
(GREAT BOOK, Dude!)
Redfern writes on several different cases, but his main bent is the deaths of persons allegedly associated with the study of the UFO phenomenon at the gov't level. Unfortunately, he fails to make that connection.
He only has a few cases of encounters where the observer did not survive. Not really what one expected, I've already read of most of these incidents. The death of Captain Mantel is rehashed, as are several other well known cases with no new details.
I could care less about Forrestal's death or the other individuals whose cases were rehashed. They seemingly had nothing to do with the UFO phenomenon. I think his attempt to tie these personalities who died into the phenomenon is a bit of a reach too far. Fills pages, though.
This was a case of the title being a misrepresentation of the contents.
