One of the barriers to accepting stories of alien abduction is the complete lack of unambiguous physical evidence showing the events were real and not a bizarre fantasy. But that may no longer be true. In July 1992, an Australian abductee named Peter Khoury had an encounter in his own home with two odd but humanlike female beings. The experience was brief but possessed some disturbing sexual aspects, and afterward Khoury found a strand of hair wrapped around his penis. Recognizing this as a rare opportunity to test the claim that aliens are creating hybrids composed of both alien and human genetic material, ufologist Chalker obtained the sample and submitted it to a team of biochemists for forensic DNA analysis. Two separate tests confirmed that the hair was human but had some peculiar traits, which Chalker admits isn't enough to prove an extraterrestrial hybrid program; but it's sufficiently weird to warrant further study. He reviews some other abduction cases that involve sexual contact and provides the Khoury DNA test results in an appendix. George Eberhart

This is one of the most important and compelling "alien abduction" cases so far. Here is why:
- Khoury has a "usual" abduction life story with some encounters going back to his childhood
- K. has the "scoop marks" (p. 181) that we know from B. Hopkins' work
- K. can describe the visitors in detail
- K. preserved a hair sample from a visitor, which showed very unusual human-like DNA (implying transplanted hair, HIV & small pox immunity, very rare local traits). This cannot be fabricated and a common person with these traits is extremely unlikely.
The most important aspect is that the DNA analysis is thorough and was done by experts. The value of the book lies in the appendix; there is the analysis with comments by the biochemists.
It is very sad that the author put some very unrelated stories as chapters in the book. And he does not write very well and thoroughly, but the DNA analysts do.
To everyone claiming that such a hair analysis needs to be published in an academic paper: review processes of academic journals are a bit like censorship; whatever does not fit a certain scope gets kicked out. I got my PhD very recently. Just describing what K. claimed to have witnessed makes it impossible to publish since alien encounters are dogmatically rejected by scientists. Anti-ufology dogmatism in academiae is very strong and this explains why the analysts want to stay anonymous. Just read the interviews of the material engineers who investigated R. Leir's "implants"; as soon as they knew the objects were removed from abductee's bodies, most of them did not want to have anything to do with it anymore.
