(Unidentified Flying Object)
Best UFO Books for 1996
There's a lot of talk
these days about UFO's, or AFC's (Alien Flying Craft). or "Flying Saucers". But,
is it "News"? There are a lot of pretty good arguments that sightings have been
going on for a very long time!
I've heard of several theories. Some of them even seem possible! But, do I have a
"favorite"? ....No, not really. Here are some that I think have possibilities,
however, I may be slightly biased (but more on that later...)
The following categories overlap, I realize, but there are no simple answers it seems...
Let's just take a quick overview of the subject, ok?
The most common belief is (most likely), that they are from another planet in this Galaxy.
From there, it varies from a single ship, coming and going at will, to huge "Star
Bases", bringing large populations from their native planet, and holding hundreds of
the smaller craft. (There are no rules here how far these ships may have come to get here.
They could even be extra-galactic travelers.)
Another theory is that these beings travel Inter-Dimensionally, using a technology or a
"Brain Power" or something else that we know nothing about.
Also popular (but less commonly accepted), is the theory that they are native to Earth,
but went underground thousands, or even millions of years ago. ...Of course, this could be
the result of underground/underwater "Bases" that the Visitors built too.
In any case, these beings developed independently from the Surface world and, due to
technological advantages, became even farther apart. Histories and Myths speak of ancient
civilizations with great powers. ...The ancient "Gods" that walked among us
(checking on the progress of their work?).
Wherever, Whenever, or however they got here, what proof do we now have that they ARE here
RETURN TO TOP
From benign observation to vicious rape, from teachers to butchers, from helpers to cattle
mutilators, all have been attributed to visitors.
Many people believe they've been taken from their beds, in the middle of the night, and
have horrendous medical procedures performed on them. Others feel they're being taken to a
"learning place", a "breathing pool", or another world (Dimension(?),
Alternate Reality(?)), or inside a "ship like" structure. There, they are
taught, guided, given "Tasks" to perform or goals to achieve.
Alien-Human Hybrid babies and other genetic experimentation is a common story (more common
among female abductees), can be viewed as both good and bad. ...We don't know the
motivation! Would it be to SAVE the human race, enhance our natural abilities? Or, perhaps
it's a form of genocide, making their race stronger, to take over the world?
The visitors' "Craft", and even themselves, seem to just POP in and out of
existence, whether it's on a Radar screen or in a bedroom.
Ranging from little green (or blue, or Gray) beings, to tall, blond haired, blue eyed, and
indistinguishable from humans (the "Nordics"). Descriptions include long-limbed,
skinny-as-a stick, "spider like" beings, and "Reptilian" looking
creatures. ...Some are seen as Angels, and some as Demons. We may be dealing with ONE
race, or Dozens(!) there's no way to know for sure...
The "Grays", with their big black eyes, are by far the most commonly accepted as
possible. Descriptions have gotten pretty detailed since the Roswell "incident".
And several hundred (or thousand) people, from all over the Globe, that have described
them seem to be describing the same type of species at least... There's even some
speculation that they may be a Plant Hybrid, used as a "Worker" race for more
advanced beings (Nordics?). The Nordics are usually described as being "in
charge" of the Grays...(??)
The Reptilian and Arachnid races are (generally) viewed negatively (except from some
owners of pet Iguanas, Boas, and Tarantulas...). The most gruesome medical procedures are
reported to be in these encounters.
Then there's the "Light Beings", the "Angels" so to speak, sometimes
called "Guides" or "Indians", "Masters", or just
"Teachers", that seem to operate outside the laws of the physical universe.
Naturally, these are sought as Desirable to contact/be contacted by, for most people.
Skeptics have a lot of fun in this area. After all, if it's beyond our present technology,
how can it be possible? ...I view this like someone in the 1850's, trying to figure out a
computer, an airplane, or even a TV, etc..
First, how can they travel such distances? It would take so long! ...Possible explanations
range from the physical (FTL, or Faster Than Light Drive, like a Magnetic Pulse Drive) to
the metaphysical (they just "WILL" themselves to another place). Perhaps there
is no hard rule, and different races have different means of travel.(?) Personally, I lean
toward the FTL Drives. (The G-force effect would be Zero if a "here-now-there"
Pulse was used. We would see it like a reel of film, but it would be experienced a frame
at a time.)
Medically, their technology may have included Genetic experimentation (long ago!). Any
Gene-splicing experiments on Mammals (like the 3% difference between Us and Chimpanzees),
could have had a profound effect on humans 15 or 20,000 years ago (or 4 million!) For all
we know, the Whale or Dolphin were "supposed" to be the dominant life form here
(the Earth IS mostly water...) Mermaids, Atlantis, Lemuria, and Urantia.... who knows what
our past truly was?
Implants are reported to be used by the visitors on us. Of course, we use them on Pets and
some Soldiers, we "Tag" Bears, Birds, ...even fish, so, ....why not them?
Some even say that some of our present, cutting-edge, technological advances are
"borrowed" from the Visitors. One developing arm of that could be the New
Generation of aircraft? In fact, some "sightings" may be of our OWN attempts at
duplication of foreign craft. ...In the paranoid eyes of the Government, they may see the
Visitors as a threat (or, they know something we don't!), and are trying to match the
abilities of the Visitors' ships, ...just in case(?!?!).
The Visitors may have large Complexes or "Bases" located anywhere (or
everywhere) from the Moon's backside to Mars, to the Devil's Triangle, to the Rocky
Mountains of Colorado. Passing through space or water is easier to believe than passing
through "solid" rock, but, why not?
RETURN TO TOP
Yes, where do WE stand in all this?
Generally, only something like hypnosis can be used to "remember" an incident.
Some get clues from half remembered "dreams". Still others get suspicious,
because they wake up with their clothes on backwards, or in a different place from where
they lay down to sleep (yet never have been seen sleep walking). So they chronicle their
lives, their scars and bumps, their dreams, their pets and children, in the hopes that a
pattern will emerge, some personal "proof" will emerge, somewhere. ... The
torture of not knowing for sure can be quite overwhelming at times.
Are they here to save the World, or Conquer it? ...Or, are they just here to observe?
Is the interaction (the abductions, visits, etc.) we hear about, part of some bigger
agenda, or are they just "baggin' and taggin'" us, like we do to "our"
Elk and Deer, Lion and Lamb?
Why don't we just ASK them, you say? ...Even National Enquirer wouldn't believe us!
Maybe the Government knows more than they're saying, and will share it with us someday.(?)
...But then, some people think there's a co-operative effort already going on between our
government and "Them", and secrecy is part of the "deal".
....In any case, only the Visitors know what motivates them. Until they decide to tell us
(which should be pretty easy for them to do!), or, until ONE of the races that are here
would decide to "break the rules" and openly, consciously, communicate, we will
be left to speculate about them, their plans, their beliefs, technology, sociology,
....and even if they're *capable* of emotion (hence, caring what WE think!)
You may have noticed that, nowhere above, did I doubt the Visitors' existence. The reason
for this is that I (too!) have been subjected to "memories (dream-like, but not
dreams)", and "Missing Time", and "in my bed, wide awake, frozen from
fear, knowing/feeling someone was there, hearing them, smelling them (earthy, musty
smell), TERRORS!". I've seen UFO's and compared them with my Father's sightings (and
my uncle's). I've done what anyone that "suspects" has done, I've researched,
and I talked to others that have had the same or similar experiences.
If you, or someone you know has anything you want to talk to me about, please leave a
message in the UFO message board, or you can write me at Elon@Dimensional-Doorways.com I assure
you, I will maintain strictest confidence to those that write me.
Do I believe in UFO's? ....No doubt about it I do!
What do you think?

Best UFO Books for 1996
(Complete List)/Previous Years' Best.
The 'Albright Award' Winners for the Year 1996
"The Best UFO-Related Books"
The Karla Turner Awards for the Top 1996 Abdcution books:
The criteria for the top abduction books include:
1) Delivers information that creates a greater understanding of the alien abduction
phenomena, their purpose and goals.
2) Releases important new material on the human-alien abduction program.
3) Brings to the general public in clearly understood language, the reality of the
4) Reveals the human participation with alien life forms and their role in human
The Karla Turner awards for the top seven alien-human abduction books for 1996 are:
1) Witnessed: The True Story of the Brooklyn Bridge UFO Abductions by Budd Hopkins (ISBN#
0-67-56915-5) Budd previously published "Missing Time" in 1981 and
"Intruders" in 1987, which brought to light the phenomenon of alien genetic
experimentation and the lost time associated with it experienced by the abductees.
"Witnessed" is a story of an abduction case observed by multiple eye-witnesses
including United Nations Secretary General Javier Perez de Cuellar.
Although he was refused to acknowledge the event publicly, this book is a living testament
of the unusual encounter between "Linda" and her alien abductors.
Hopkins goes on to detail the ET-program known as "bonding" which involves a
pairing off of two humans subjects in a "bonding environment," generally
described as a blinding white location that is clearly under the alien's control.
Hopkins also describes other frequently used alien "mind-control" manipulations
which leave the abductees traumatized.
2) Connections: Solving Our Alien Abduction Mystery by Beth Collings and Anna Jamerson
(ISBN #0-926524-35-6) Connections is the gripping tale of two women and the search for the
truth regarding their lifelong alien abductions.
The two authors tell their story individually, taking turns in each chapter to keep the
narrative running smoothly. Similarly to Hopkins "Witnessed," Collings and
Jamerson illustrates the control aliens have over their lives and the conditioning
of "abductee-bonding." Both Beth and Anna discover evidence for alien abduction
that may have been going on in each of their families for generations, and still taking
place at the present. A dynamite contribution to abduction research and a thoroughly
3) Beyond My Wildest Dreams by Kim Carlsberg, illustrated by Darryl Anka (ISBN
#1-879181-25-8) Released late in 1995, this winner is a complete and scary roller-coaster
ride about the myriad of experiences that make up an abductee's life. "Beyond My
Wildest Dreams" poignantly captures the range of human emotion--
from fear to exhilaration--inherent in the abduction program. Kim's diary-style account
about a series of alien abductions combined with Darryl's colorful but explicit artwork
works wonderfully. Despite Kim's often terrifying experiences involving physical and
psychological pain, she went beyond her limitations and
discovered proof of the existence of other realms as wells as of other aspect of
consciousness such as telepathy and teleportation. One of a small number of abduction
books (7 at last count) that relate the Military-Alien involvement or collaboration.
Disturbing yet inspirational in a tragic sort of way
4) The Excycles "The True Experiences of a Woman Who is Loved by Extraterrestrials
and was Romanced by a U.S. Government Intelligence Agent" by Mia Adams (ISBN
#0-9649905-0-4) Mia experiences are so astonishing, that the reader is forced to
deliberate on how manipulated the Intelligence Agencies are themselves. Really two books
in one. The first part consists of the author's surveillance and subsequent romance by an
intelligence operative. This relationship finally ends with "Jordan" giving Mia
a 12 page explanation of the covert Government's involvement with extraterrestrials. Those
12 pages alone are worth the price of the book. The second part details Mia's worldwide
spirituals journeys whichinclude many incredible miracles and synchoronicites. A must
5) UFO Healings "True Accounts of People Healed by Extraterrestrials" by Preston
Dennett (ISBN# 0-926524-33-X) UFO investigator Preston Dennet offers up certifiedevidence
from around the world that documents that ETs may be healing abductees on a regular basis.
Dennet investigates over a hundred cases of people whom ETs have cured of diseases ranging
from the common cold of cancer. Although in contrast to the contactee/Space Brother
concept of benevolent aliens, half of the abductees feel
that their healings are part of a preservation program known as "equipment
The list of healings for a wide range of symptoms are staggering and documents that alien
technology would make modern medicine obsolete. Dennet's statistical analysis brings
researchers closer to unraveling the aliens agenda.
6) Fire in the Sky - Travis Walton (Marlow & Co.) Walton updates his first book
released in 1978 titled "The Walton Experience" with details his November 5,
1975 encounter with an ET craft and it's occupants. Walton critically pans the movie,
"Fire in the Sky" which over-dramatized the actual events. Travis superbly
the fraudulent Phil Klass and CSICOPS as worthless charlatans that makes a mockeryof
themselves and debunkers in general. One of the most important long-term abduction cases
on record, and Walton informatively explains his own research since that time.
7) The Significance of Multiple Participant Abductions - John S. Carpenter A 20-page
examination concerning two or more people being simultaneously abducted. Included are six
detailed cases and two appendices with 58 correlations. Significant because of the
author's long-term research into the subject and one of
the very few papers about the phenomenon of multiple-experienced abductions.
We would love to see a hard-cover book by Carpenter, who ranks up there with Budd Hopkins,
John Mack and David Jacob as the World's premier scholar and investigator on alien

sun, now sits under a layer of clouds; apparently due to some kind of ET weather-control
device The second half of this book highlights the
shocking story of the genetically alien-engineered "animal" referred to as the
"Chupacabras" or goat-sucker. Puerto Rico has been a hot-spot for alien
encounters for many years now and this book gets you right inside what people are living
