A collection of essays about the UFO subject and related phenomena. The first chapter discusses the U.S. Government's involvement along with the author's personal experiences with agents and military personnel. The text also includes historical perspectives on the subject, and theories and opinions on the current search for answers about UFOs from a viewpoint that is neither belief-based nor that of a doctrinaire skeptic. There are also entries about square craters on the Moon, black-eyed kids, and baseball games at Area 51. Foreword by Nick Redfern. Illustrated by "Red Pill Junkie."

May 24, 2016Occasionally I'm approached by individuals looking for the best-thinkers in the paranormal field. I've had some standard answers I've given, but all that has changed with this book. Now I tell them: 1) Spend six months listening to every paranormal podcast you can; 2) Buy IT DEFIES LANGUAGE! and adjust your opinions and B.S. (belief system) accordingly.

Sharpen your forks and knives people as Bishop has... More > served up an intellectual feast with this one. Red Pill Junkie's illustrations are brilliantly witty and are a welcomed addition to the great number of images and diagrams that are throughout this book.
