Format: Hardcover
A most bizarre book. Author Eileen Buckle and assistant Norman Oliver visit someone called Arthur Bryant, who claimed that aliens from Venus visited him and left behind proof of the Thomas Mantell 1948 reported UFO incident, in the form of some old pieces of scrap, and, one of the aliens, going by the name of Yamski, left a message for "Des or Les" that if he were here then he would understand. All this reportedly happened the day after flying saucer author George Adamski died.

How this crazy tale got published at all is perhaps the greatest mystery.

Buckle and Oliver apparently get taken in by Bryant's claims and they embark on a quest to see if the pieces of scrap offered by Bryant could have come from Mantell's plane. Things take a turn for the more bizarre when a mysterious voice appears on a recording of a British UFO convention. The voice speaks in rhymes and sends the authors off on journeys to lonely parts of the English countryside, in the anticipation of UFO contact. Things get even weirder when the voice manifests in Norman Oliver's head and also starts communicating in morse code.

For the sheer offbeat nature of the book, it deserves three stars.
