The books topic is not open yet, as I was going to put a list of my favorites.

I think Whitley Strieber's books are fiction, and he has done more to destroy ufology's standing than many other authors.

Travis Walton's book is interesting, even though he makes a bigger noose for himself (He states the others did not see the object, just the light. He also makes the claim he never made any money off the abduction claim, forgetting about the $5000 National Enquirer payment, two book deals, and a movie deal). The positive part of his case is he saw two types of aliens and they did not look like the Betty and Barney Hill case (one group looked like the Starchild from the UFO Hunters episode on abductions). Also, Mr Walton lost ten pounds and yet was nourished. A mark on the back of the neck could of been made by the alien visitors and that saved his life. I recommend the book so you can make up your own mind, as I am on the fence on the case.

"Captured" by Kathleen Mardsen and Stanton Friedmen about the Hill case is very good. Updated information and the whole case is re-examined.

"Shoot Them Down" by Frank Feschino is about the Summer of 1952 flying saucer wave and includes the Flatwoods Monster case.

"Alien Agenda" by Jim Marrs has some very good cases in it. There is an extensive bibliography for other authors in that book.

Those are some books to get you started. Many are available at your library (some can be ordered), and all are available at amazon.com.

Goddess Bless,

Lloyd

There is actually a book topic in media.

As always on such things kidflash and I disagree. I don't believe Ufology ever had a standing that could be destroyed. I think Whitley has done more to bring Ufology into the minds of the masses than anyone else in modern history. My guess would be that there are many Ufologists that would not being selling as many books without the market and interest that Whitley created. Aside from that, I believe that he is telling the truth as he remembers it, which does not necessarily make it the truth, but I don't believe he is lying.

Also, I get around to reading all of Whitley's books eventually. I have been a fan since before Communion, love his horror novels! Basically I find all Whitley's books enjoyable.

I really liked his book "Wolfen". I could not really get into his alien encounter books, and then found out the aliens are invisible to everyone else. It also does not help his case when he starts writing about underground alien bases. Reality, what a concept.

Lesley, I disagree with you on Mr Strieber, but I should also tell the OP that they need to make up their own minds on what he has to say. I have read many authors that make some people in the field cringe, so I will never be for any kind of censorship.

I remember reading Michael Cremo's book "Forbidden Archeology" and being attacked because the author is a Krishna. Never mind the fact that he raises good points in a very well researched book. millipede, you get whatever books you need, and decide for yourself.
