No Return - Reviewed



No Return is the title of a new book from David Booher. It is published by the good folks at Anomalist Books. The subtitle is UFO Abduction or Covert Operation? That’s a very good question! I finished reading the book last week and, I can say with certainty, it does not disappoint. It’s a real-life, little-known, saga that dates back to the latter part of the 1950s. It still remains filled with enigmas and puzzles, close to sixty years after it occurred.

Anomalist Books’ publicity page for No Return states: “On a lonesome road in Utah, a young soldier returning from leave speeds through the desert night. Suddenly the sky lights up as a blazing object streaks across the highway and crashes nearby. Stunned, the soldier stops and decides to investigate. Little does he know, but his life will never be the same again. This is the true story of a man named Gerry Irwin. Following a mysterious experience in Utah in 1959, inexplicable blackouts and bizarre behavior threatened to derail his promising Army career. Then one day he suddenly deserted his Army post in Texas and disappeared without a trace. No one knows what became of him—until now. What happened to Gerry Irwin? Was he abducted by aliens, in what would amount to the first known case of this phenomenon on American soil? Or was he a pawn in a covert intelligence operation? And how does his story really end? A new investigation launched in 2013 attempts to answer these and other questions, revealing along the way the ordeal of a man whose mind was ravaged by a confrontation with the unknown.”

Those are the two opening paragraphs from a new review from me of the latest title from Anomalist Books: No Return, by David Booher. It's a great book, very intriguing, and well worth reading!

You can read my review here, and you can find more on the book at the links above.

A Trilogy of Pterodactyl Tales



Within the field of Cryptozoology, one of the strangest issues is that which revolves around claims that in various parts of the world pterodactyls still exist. Yes, it sounds totally crazy. But, there are plenty of such stories, some from very credible people.

I recently wrote a three-part series on such cases for Mysterious Universe, and here they are:

1. A 1982 wave of encounters in the north of England.

2. The Pterodactyl-Peyote connection.

3. A definite hoax.

Chestnut Ridge Mysteries: Bigfoot & UFOs...




This looks to be good...!


Press release from: Small Town Monsters:

PENNSYLVANIA PREPARES FOR AN “INVASION”

AWARD-WINNING FILM COMPANY RELEASES DOCUMENTARY CENTERED AROUND THE CHESTNUT RIDGE

A new film titled Invasion on Chestnut Ridge (from the creators of the just-released documentary, The Mothman of Point Pleasant) now has a trailer. “Invasion” tells the true story of one of the more bizarre places in America, Pennsylvania's Chestnut Ridge, and the unusual activity that has taken place there for decades. Ahead of the launch of the film, the official trailer has been released. Delving into one of the most intriguing, and unusual regions this side of the Bermuda Triangle, the film will tell the tale of the Kecksburg UFO crash, the Uniontown Bigfoot/UFO sightings, encounters with a large, prehistoric bird in Keystone State Park and much more.

The trailer shows glimpses of just a few of the interviews conducted with locals, witnesses and investigators interspersed with footage depicting some of the unusual activity that has taken place along the ridge. Invasion on Chestnut Ridge will be the first feature film to document this hotbed of paranormal activity. Is the ridge a magnet for strange and mystifying forces? A beacon to visitors from beyond? You be the judge when the film is released on October 20th!

Small Town Monsters produced the just-released Mothman of Point Pleasant. That film is currently in the midst of a lengthy film festival run that spans into next year, and was previously the best selling title on Amazon’s Documentary category. Invasion is directed and produced by Seth Breedlove, the award-winning director of Boggy Creek Monster, Beast of Whitehall and The Mothman of Point Pleasant. It features cinematography by Zac Palmisano, animated sequences by Chris Scalf, special FX work by Sentry Cinemas, illustrations by Brandon Scalf and Matt Harris and an original score by Brandon Dalo. The one-sheet was created by renowned artist, Sam Shearon.

Britain's Bigfoot: Paranormal


A new article from me on why the so-called "British Bigfoot" is clearly not a flesh-and-blood animal. It's much weirder than that...

A Crashed UFO...That Wasn't...

A good, new article from Jack Brewer, in which I get a mention and which gets into the issue of a crashed UFO that was surely NOT a crashed UFO...

UFOs & MInd-Control: A Trilogy of Accounts

Over at Mysterious Universe, you can find a 3-part series from me on the controversial issue of the connection between UFOs and "mind-control"/ "mind manipulation."

1. This one is an article on the strange affair of a minor cog in the Contactee wheel of the 1950s: Orfeo Angelucci.

2. The follow-up focuses on a man named Stanley Glickman, who had a near-identical experience - also in the 1950s.

3. The third one all revolves around two of the stranger stories connected to the Roswell affair.

Roswell: A Change Coming?


Over at Mysterious Universe, there's a new article from me on last week's 70th anniversary celebrations in Roswell, New Mexico. Here's how it starts:


From June 28 to July 2, I hung out in the city of Roswell, New Mexico, to attend the annual UFO gig – which is actually a collection/selection of more than a few events, activities and fun for the family. It was a packed weekend, with thousands of people turning up to take part in the festivities. The figures are hardly surprising: it was, after all, the 70th anniversary of the crash of…well…take your pick: a UFO, a weather-balloon, time-travelers, a Soviet device, or…the list goes on and on. And on. The conference that I spoke at (along with Greg Bishop, Jack Brewer, Dr. Michael Heiser, Joe Jordan, and Guy Malone – who organized the event) provoked a great deal of feedback from the audience. The title of the conference: “70 Years Later: Modern Challenges to the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis.” I was speaking on the subject of my recently-published book, The Roswell UFO Conspiracy, and I gave my lecture twice – on June 30 and July 2.

What I found particularly interesting about the entire affair was the local media’s coverage of the 70th anniversary. There’s no doubt that the city of Roswell derives a great deal of income from the tourist industry – and not just at the time of the annual gigs, but throughout the entire year, too. Most of that same tourism revolves around the alien angle of the controversial incident. In light of that, I was somewhat surprised – albeit in a good and positive way – by the coverage that the city’s Roswell Daily Record newspaper gave to the celebrations. It was on June 30 that the first, major article appeared in the newspaper – specifically on the non-alien theories for whatever it really was that happened outside of Roswell in the summer of 1947.

And here's the link to the article...

The Slenderman Mysteries: February 2018



Coming from me in February 2018: The Slenderman Mysteries:  An Internet Urban Legend Comes To Life.

And here's the publisher's (New Page Books) info on the book:

"It’s the dead of night; you are fast asleep. Suddenly, you are wide awake but unable to move. Hunched over you in the shadows is an eight- or nine-foot-tall gaunt entity with spider-thin limbs, dressed in an old-style black suit, its pale face missing eyes, nose, ears, and mouth. You finally manage to cry out. The monstrous thing disappears as suddenly as it appeared.

"You just had a terrifying encounter with the Slenderman.

"Who―or what―is the Slenderman? His existence began on the Internet, but he didn’t stay online. The Slenderman may be a tulpa, a thought-form that can stride out of our darkest imaginations and into reality if enough people believe in it. In May 2014, two young Milwaukee girls almost killed a friend in the name of the Slenderman. Perhaps, like the vast Skynet system in the Terminator movies, the Internet is turning against us―and attacking us with digital equivalents of our own online nightmares.

"The Slenderman has come to life. For the first time, this book reveals the full and fear-filled saga."

MJ12, Documents & UFO Disclosure

I'm not sure how many more articles I can write on the latest (and 100 percent bogus) MJ12 documents, but here's the latest. It's probably not the last one from me on this subject, but it's surely getting to the end. I hope.

Here's where you can find the article.

And, here's how it begins:

All of the recent talk about the ridiculous/ludicrous latest batch of Majestic 12 documents has me thinking about a question I was asked, by several people, when the documents first surfaced last week. The question was: is this finally the start of disclosure? My answer: Is it ***K! Let’s get a few things straight. If someone on the inside wants to initiate some form of disclosure (with official sanction or as a rogue individual), then they could most certainly do a hell of a lot better than teasing us with that latest pile of stinking, steaming, fly-infested puke. An interview with an alien who talks just like we do and who loves trees? If that’s the best that a person wanting disclosure can come up with – hippie tree-huggers from the stars (who probably like acoustic guitars and beards) – then God help us all. What the hell will be next? A revelation that the once-Strawberry-Ice-Cream-loving ETs have now moved onto chocolate-chip?

Thoughts On The New MJ12 "Documents"

While I don't know who faked those new MJ12 documents, there's not a chance this is disinformation by a government agency.

This is probably the work of someone in Ufology, who is just waiting for certain UFO researchers to endorse the documents - and then the hoaxer will come forward and explain how and why he did it.
 
With the 70th anniversary of the Roswell crash being just around the corner, this is perfect timing for someone to try and fool Ufology. And with the "I want to believe" factor so strong in Ufology, it will probably work.

I am looking forward to seeing certain ufological fence-sitters who will 100 percent refuse to denounce the documents as bullshit.

Why won't they denounce them? Because they fear they won't get booked at next year's conference here, or conference there, and are fearful of not being in with the "in-crowd" of Ufology anymore. Pathetic!! To those people, I say grow some balls and say what these "documents" are - total crap!

Majestic 12: The New papers


You may have seen that just a couple of days ago a new batch of Majestic 12 documents surfaced. Are they real? No, not in my opinion. They are a total joke! You can find my article here...
