A classic book on the Men in Black -- NOT based upon the science fiction movie...but on amazing cases that really happened. The author was editor for over 10 years of UFO UNIVERSE magazine and has interviewed FIRST HAND dozens of individuals who have been threatened by the MIB because they knew too much about UFOs or came to close to the answer to the true origins of these unknown craft. Here are stories that will set your hair on end and chill you to the bone.

On the UFO Hunters (History Channel) country western singer and Hollywood stuntman Johnny Sands revealed the details of his bewildering contact with the dreaded MIB while on the way to perform in Las Vegas on New Year's Eve. UFO Silencers contains the full story (with art) based on a first person interview.

Also published for the first time is the first authentic photograph taken by author Tim Beckley during a concentration of UFO encounters in New Jersey during 1966. His presentation on Coast to Coast AM and UFO Hunters regarding this incident has stunned the world.

There are also the cases of mysterious murders linked to the MIB and the case of a doctor actually having one of these sinister individuals in his home where he was threatened by the MIB.

This book has sold thousands of copies. It is the Bible of Men In Black experiences. OWN IT NOW!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money Feb. 10 2004
By A Customer
This is the only book I've read on this subject and it HAS to be the worst. It's laughable .... probably even worse than Casebook on the Men in Black (according to those reviews).
If you can actually believe stories about rays shooting out of men's eyes and there eyes turning different colors etc. then go ahead and buy it.
It is a piece of junk, from the ridiculous cover art to the absurd stories inside it.
Too bad such a piece of garbage was written on a truly fascinating subject ... I'd recommend John Keel over this idiot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Case Studies About The Men in Black Feb. 9 2007
By William Hare - Published on
Timothy Beckley is a top name among UFO researchers. So is John Keel, author of the enduring "Our Haunted Planet," who provided the foreword for this timely work and appears within the text as well.

The subject of the men in black has been treated in certain circles as comic book subject matter to be dismissed from serious discussion. A prominent film was made that dealt with the men in black phenomenon in that manner.

What many investigative types will find refreshing is that "Mystery of the Men in Black: The UFO Silencers" by Timothy Beckley consists of numerous case histories with added commentary from either the researchers presenting the cases, or from the investigators themselves in those instances where they discuss a case study or studies.

The common thread is that the men in black, as the name implies, dress in black suits and wear black hats. They often wear dark glasses and are frequently seen traveling in black Cadillacs that often bear strange license plates, while some reveal none at all.

The men in black sometimes appear to be deeply tanned and are frequently described as possessing an Oriental look, bearing slant-like eyes. Their manner of speech also has been cited as strange to the point where they have difficulty pronouncing words. It is also said that many have trouble walking, and move in a strange, awkward manner.

While these have been commonly expressed characteristics, once one moves beyond appearance a variety of opinions exist of who they are and what they might represent. This disparity is fascinating to read about as the case histories unfold.

Early in the book we learn about the doppeldanger, or double, effect in which men in black seek to impersonate individuals who have claimed to experience UFO sightings, or, additionally, have claimed to have had contact with extraterrestrials arising from those encounters.

What we repeatedly learn from these revelations is that the men in black, as the title of "The UFO Silencers" indicates, seek to serve as "silencers" to prevent details of such purported accounts from being communicated. All kinds of trick tactics are employed to accomplish this purpose.

One of the most interesting encounters occurs when Brad Steiger, one of the most prominent names in the field, believes that a friend is attempting to pull a prank on him. The friend stated that Steiger and Keel were seeking to debunk a UFO sighting claim, which was not the case.

Since Steiger was then busy completing a book he refused to go, believing the friend was kidding him. Eventually the man turned up at Steiger's door in a rattled, frightened condition.

Another account involves a Maine doctor who had consulted with someone claiming to have had a UFO experience. This was followed by a strange man appearing at his door, anxious to talk about the UFO claim.

The doctor was astonished when the man left and appeared to vanish in thin air. He looked carefully and was unable to see the man at all after he stepped outside the house. The doctor became so shaken that he eventually purchased a gun.

While there is a common thread of men in black practicing intimidation and trickery in various ways, there are varying schools of thought on whether they are from another planet or, as Keel believes, could be from planet earth.

Some UFO researchers who hold devout religious beliefs contend that the men in black represent an evil Satan in a continuing battle with God and the forces of good. Dr. Frank Stranges, a Van Nuys, California minister, falls into this category and relates an encounter he and his wife had on a highway when a black Cadillac ran them off the road.

Dr. Stranges believe that he and his wife's lives were spared through a divine healing. He provides a regular candlelight prayer service as a means of fending off the dark forces and protecting oneself by allying with God.

In one New Jersey case investigators attempting to gain information into a man in black following a local resident involved with UFO studies snapped a picture of the man in black they were following. It appears in the book.

What is good about this book is that it provides accounts and presents varying viewpoints dealing with the men in black phenomenon.

5.0 out of 5 stars The MIBs are no mystery... April 11 2001
By "thundergod99" - Published on
This book is an excellent resource that could only be brought to you in the alternative press. The case studies are well written, and the photographs are very helpful. A great book for anyone who needs a good overview of the MIB phenomena.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Want To Know About The Real MIBs? Start Here! Oct. 6 2010
By Bill Stockstill - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is Timothy Green Beckley's 1990 book on MIB cases mostly from the 60s and 70s but also includes cases reported up until publication. But don't think because its not new its not worth a look. If you read any book about the real MIB it might as well be by the person who has taken the only known photo of a probable MIB (staking out a UFO researcher's office). That photo is included in the book. Beckley includes many stories here from witnesses as well as researchers that together give the reader a good idea of how bizarre the real MIB subject can be. Throughout history mysterious black clad figures have found their way into many cultures and religions. It seems almost natural that they become associated with UFOs and other strange phenomena such as crop circles. Unlike Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith, the MIB Beckley writes of seem to be malevolent, threatening silencers of UFO witnesses and researchers. No memory erasing wand is used like in the movies. Instead UFO witnesses find themselves threatened by strange oriental looking men clad in dark, ill fitting suites that act and sometimes talk mechanically. Witnesses say that these strangers drive around in highly polished black cars, sometimes jammed full of electronics and often sit in front of their homes intimidating them. The strange circumstances of MIB encounters defy a rational explanation, many are as weird or weirder then the UFO sighting they are attempting to cover up. Arriving without a car, turn your head and gone, unplaceable accents they often seem unaccustomed to and awkward in common social situations. The book also points out there have been MIB cases worldwide. One case in the book occurred 40 miles from where I grew up. I was 9 at the time of the strange UFO and MIB encounters. If you want to get a good handle on what an MIB encounter is like, start here. Once you get a grasp of how the phenomina started in the 60s and 70s from reading his book, check out Beckley's updated MIB book, Curse Of The Men In Black: Return Of The UFO Terrorists which is next on my list.

3.0 out of 5 stars Would be 5 stars if not for the typos! June 9 2011
By Diane Ferro - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The information itself is very interesting and presents many cases that I have not found in other publications in the past. However, I would not recommend reading this in the Kindle version as there are many, many typographical errors in the text. With at least one, and up to four words with inappropriate hyphenations on EVERY page (repre-sented, autho-rized, etc.)it is a very tiresome read. These hyphenations are not at the end of lines, but rather in the middle of lines, throughout the entire book. I do recommend reading this book - just not the Kindle version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Weird Subject May 28 2012
By Jeff Marzano - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a weird subject.

Anyone who has studied about flying saucers and related subjects will eventually begin to realize that there is something evil and sinister about the phenomenon. The Men In Black fall under that umbrella of evil.

Encounters with these characters are invariably negative, frightening, and menacing. The MIBs often intimidate and threaten people who have knowledge about flying saucers and alien beings.

Often it seems that the information these people possess isn't really that significant and really just provides a pretense for being visited by the MIBs. But having an actual piece of wreckage from a flying saucer is like the kiss of death and will usually guarantee an unwelcome visit from them.

This book contains short chapters about different cases where people have had encounters with the MIBs.

One of the strangest cases was about a lady who was working as a typist at the FBI. She got so upset that she quit her job. Then the MIBs abducted her and kept her at an unknown location for many hours. She was forced to drink some type of drug and they made her promise to say that she had attempted to commit suicide.

The MIBs appear in different forms but a guy in Ireland provided what is probably the most accurate and common description:

"There was something, well, DEAD, about him."

The stranger was dressed in a "proper suit" but looked as though he'd been "pulled out of a trunk that had been locked for at least 50 years".

They often look like dead men walking. They remind people of funeral directors and of death in general.

Their speech and movements are very strange and can appear to be mechanical or robotic.

I took off one star because this book mixes discussions about the MIBs with information about religion and the bible. Those two subjects don't go well together in my opinion.

The author captured an MIB in a photograph which appears in this book. It's pretty creepy.

The painting on the cover of this book is great I feel. It captures what the MIBs are like with their weird clothes and old black Cadillac.
