"Fortean Times" Book of UFOs, 1947-97
by Dennis Stacy
Edition: Hardcover
Price: CDN$ 30.50
7 used & new from CDN$ 16.45

5.0 out of 5 stars First published in May 1997 - Old but Excellent, Oct. 7 2014
This has all the big names in Ufology: Kenneth Arnold, Jerome Clark, Michael Swords, Jacques Vallee, Raymond Fowler etc.

Chris A. Rutkowski's article "The Langenburg CE2 Case: When UFOs Left Their Mark" has material about Edwin Fuhr's encounters that I have not seen anywhere else. This is one of the best articles that I have ever read about this case.

Also includes "Declassification! Military UFO Records Released: The Spanish Experience" by Vicente-Juan Ballester Olmos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cemeteries, ghost, UFOs, Grays, examination by orbs - its all here., Sept. 26 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: UFOs in Missouri (Paperback)
This is a real mixed bag of material. UFOs, extraterrestrials, inter-dimentional beings, tupas, time slips, time travel, abductions, missing time. You've heard of screen memories - were abductees are given a false memory to cover-up usually some weird medical procedure. D. P. Roseberry has written a short piece on memory problems that She encountered after her UFO sighting - She calls it memory attacks; see pages 126 to 128.

There is lots of ghost, cemetery, UFO & Grays material here. The author gives personal experiences of Coombs Ferry, and Old Matt's cabin at Branson, Missouri.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Dr. Roger Leir (1934 - 2014), Sept. 5 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Not surprisingly there is a lot of information on implants and surgeries in this book. This is the author of THE ALIENS AND THE SCALPEL, but there is also information on what the US government knows about implant research etc. Chapter 6 is an update on the Varginha incident. Again, this is the author of UFO CRASH IN BRAZIL. The cover-up and the disappearance of the very well respected Vitorio Pacaccini. “He was active in his investigations long after 1996, but has now completely disappeared” (page 95).

He mentions a person who was able to get six frames from his video recorder of an entity coming through a bedroom wall. A picture was sent to the late Budd Hopkins, and this being was different than anything that had been reported before! (pages 41 & 42).

Dr. Leir also mentions the ebook, CORONADO ISLAND INTRUSION by Yvonne Smith which I will have to look into. Thank you Dr. Roger Leir, (1934 - 2014) you will be missed.

Encounters with Star People: Untold Stories of American Indians
Encounters with Star People: Untold Stories of American Indians

Edition: Paperback
Price: CDN$ 17.72
18 used & new from CDN$ 16.30

5.0 out of 5 stars Abductions, medical procedures, mutilations - the Star People can do whatever they want, Aug. 17 2014
The only reason we have this book is that people trusted Dr. Ardy Clarke. Some asked not to be interrupted when they told their story. Others said that they would only tell their story once. None wanted to be identified.

Dr. Clarke presents a wide variety of reports.

These reports include various UFOs, mutilations and stories of viruses eg. case of an entire dormitory coming down with a strange flu. All these experiences are recalled without the use of hypnotists. Again & again the stories are like one of David Jacob's book in that they say DON'T TRUST THEM. Reports of entire families who have gone missing i.e. abducted and never returned.

Are they are ancestors? One answer was: No, as they look more like mechanical bugs (page 95). Other cases where they look just like us - and were lowered down in big black cars to do whatever in our society. Chapter 22 has a female abductee that will remind people who know the UFO literature of Budd Hopkin's books. We have clones, or duplicates, made of children (chapter 9). As for mutilations two people saw "a buffalo carcass being tossed out of the craft ... like a stale loaf of bread" (pages 128 and 129). We also have reports of UFO appearing over houses at the hour of death (pages 137-138). All the reports are disturbing.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
There is one button on the side of the watch. So it took me a while to figure out how to set the time. And the time is in 24 hour mode only. The time only displays when you press the button.

As a USB memory stick, it works just fine. And lets you know on the display how much storage there is. Doesn't look at all like a USB or watch - just a plastic band around your wrist.

5.0 out of 5 stars UFOs in Ecuador, Brazil & Mexico, May 8 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The first part of this video is about the work of Jaime Rodriguez and the Comisión Ecuatoriana para la investigación del Fenómeno Ovni (CEIFO) which did the following:

1. Created a convincing dossier on why UFOs information should be make public. (Funding for this report was not granted to the committee - so they had to get their own funds.)

2. Military personal were afraid of ruining their careers as the phenomena was not taken seriously by the public. So the President of Ecuador had to intervene. The Minister of Defense issued a document that military personnel could make statements about UFOs and it would not affect their CV.

3. Then they had to deal with an American intelligence agency - that wanted everything concealed. President Rafael Correa found that Ecuador's secret services had been corrupted. So the president had to fire everyone. He ordered the expulsion of various agents back to the USA. This disrupted, or unsettled, the military enough that they began to talk. There was lot of disclosure, and this was due to the order of President Correa, June 25, 2007. Order no. 2007-0439 CSN

After this commanders of the Air Force, Army etc. began to be open. Nothing was to remain secret in Ecuador. Rodriguez could go into government agencies and request information. Zanoni G. Dominguez, Air Force General Staff Col. is shown confirming the situation.

Ademar José Gevaerd talks about Project Plato which took place in 1977 - a secret research that was conducted by the Brazilian Military. Local authorities at Colares asked the government for help after a lot of sightings began to alarm the public. The project produced over 2000 pages of documents, 500 photographs, and about 60 hours of film footage. Project Plato was closed due to contact with extraterrestrial beings i.e. contact between the Air Force and extraterrestrial beings. The Air Force was afraid of losing control. They simply close the project down in mid December, 1977.

The DVD also has film of balloon-like UFOs in Mexico.

This video can be viewed on youtube; run time is 105 minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Huge volume - and lots of colored photos and documents, April 28 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Haunted Skies Volume 8 (Paperback)
This volume has lots of color photos, and documents. Including documents re: the murder/death of Zigmund Jan Adamski. (there is a chapter on his murder in the book, DEATH BY SUPERNATURAL CAUSES). The coroner is quoted as saying "It is quite the most mysterious death I have investigated in 12 years as a coroner" (HAUNTED SKIES vol 8. page 71).

There is lots of material from the trio that opened up the Rendlesham forest case: Dot Street, Brenda Butlar, who was invited to be a part of this vol., and Jenny Randles. And a lot of material re: Georgina Bruni the late author of YOU CAN'T TELL THE PEOPLE - there is even a photo of her meeting with Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in 1997, were the PM made that famous remark.

Crop circles at Westbury, Wiltshire. UFO over areas all over the U.K. Strange beings reports. The index isn't at the back of the book but at pages 439 to 449. This is a must have book for anyone interested in the Rendlesham Forest case.

5.0 out of 5 stars A simple watch that is easy to see - a good watch for people with vision problems., April 10 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a good simple watch, especially for people with low vision. (And it is half the price of ILA Independent living aids low vision watches - but the style of ILA watches is a bit nicer). There is no minute indicators. The back pops off easily, so replacing the battery should not be a problem.

The instructions stated that hairspray could damage the watch - I didn't know that. So take your watch off, if you are using hair spray.

Alien Update

5.0 out of 5 stars Includes Canadian UFO phenomena, April 3 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Canadian readers might be interested in the "1992 animal mutilations update" by Linda Moulton Howe. There were cattle mutilations at Leduc, Alberta.

Chapter 8 is about "A large stationary object above Montreal" by Dr. Richard Haines and Bernard Guénette at pages 95 to 123.

The book doesn't mention that the UFO over Montréal was reported by the CBC. CBC digital archives still has the report up on the web about the UFO hovering over Montréal; where one can witness the information eg. "On Nov. 7, 1990, a woman spots something in the sky while swimming in the rooftop pool of her downtown Montreal hotel. She sees a round, metallic object projecting a series of brilliant light beams. Her sighting sets off a chain reaction. She tells the lifeguard who calls the hotel security guard, who contacts the police and a journalist from La Presse newspaper. The RCMP, the military and even NASA are called in." CBC also provided disinformation – it is just a weather phenomena - yeah right. RCMP were called for weather phenomena. Sorry but we really did expected better from the CBC.

This book is indexed. And Timothy Good has a chapter, no. 14, on world wide sightings reports.

The Humanoids

5.0 out of 5 stars 1950s and 60s humanoids reports with a lot of drawf like creatures & three foot men etc., March 26 2014
This review is from: The Humanoids (Paperback)
Before Albert Rosales and his famous 'Humanoid Sighting Reports' there was Charles Bowen's book on THE HUMANOIDS. These are 1950 and 1960s reports. And what a great variety of creatures we get. There are a lot of what are called "dwarf–like creatures", covered with an abundant dark hair (eg. p. 75), some creatures with claws and glowing eyes. Other are more like us, with long hair and dressed in coveralls. Some are variations of earth humans eg. "The girl, extremely fair–skinned and freckled, had high check–bones, a very pointed chin, and vivid blue 'Chinese–type' slant eyes, and was about 4 feet 8 inches high without helmet" (p. 101). Other creatures have helmets and only one eye.

Some people could handle the sights - others ended up in the hospital in shock.

The table of contents is as follows:
