Lovecraft... More > put it, “The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is the fear of the unknown.” The fifteen stories in this volume represent more than five decades (1859-1913) of Victorian storytelling about the invisible, ranging from classic stories by major authors, such as Fitz-James O’Brien’s “What Was It?” and Ambrose Bierce’s “The Damned Thing,” to obscure gems that have remained out of print since the nineteenth century.

Each tells an interesting tale of not just of the adventure inherent in encountering moon creatures but also of the cares and concerns of the people who projected their hopes and fears onto the lunar orb.

More > the Pacific where they rested dead but dreaming until the day of Cthulhu’s glorious resurrection.

Of all the ancient structures scattered across the globe, Egypt’s Great Pyramid, built by the Pharaoh Khufu (also known as Cheops) around 2580-2560 BCE on the desert plateau of Giza, has... More > attracted the most attention from ancient astronaut theorists and alternative historians. By some estimates, more has been written about the Great Pyramid than any other topic in ancient history, excepting only the Bible.

Thus, the following book is essential reading for understanding the history of pyramid theories and how ancient astronaut theorists and alternative archaeologists employ them.< Less
Theosophy on Ancient Astronauts By Jason Colavito

Prints in 3-5 business days
It is often unacknowledged how deep a debt modern ancient astronaut theorists owe to the nineteenth-century Theosophical movement, a Victorian-era amalgam of Spiritualism, Eastern religions, and good... More > old-fashioned hokum. The Theosophists proposed that beings from Venus and other planets visited earth in the deep past and were responsible for ancient ruins and the foundations of religion. This book presents early texts from noted Theosophists and those who encountered Theosophy, covering the beings from other worlds that came to the ancient earth to “civilize our planet.” These texts provide an interesting window into the origins of the modern ancient astronaut theory and demonstrate just how much the talking heads of cable TV and the modern authors of alternative history owe to the pioneering work of the nineteenth- and early twentieth-century occultists. This volume features W. Scott-Elliot’s complete The Lost Lemuria and H. P. Blavatsky’s Stanzas of Dzyan among other selections.< Less
