Robert Goerman Reviews My "Area 51" Book




Area 51: The Revealing Truth of UFOs, Secret Aircraft, Cover-Ups & Conspiracies by Nick Redfern identifies Who's Who and What's What in that little corner of the conspiracy theory universe. Reading this opus is like being thrown out of an airplane without a parachute. The wild exhilaration of the freefall is offset by the horror of the ground rushing up to greet you. Redfern can be both today's casual read and tomorrow's well worn reference with a creased spine and dog-eared pages.

Creating the definitive reference book about the shadowy Area 51 hydra and its many tentacles of smoke and mirrors is a herculean task. Pulling no punches, Redfern jumps into the fray with forty-six chapters and four hundred pages. Readers are escorted through a labyrinth of murky passages and secret chambers that range from historical to hysterical and all points in between. Is there anything about the most controversial military base in the world that should be discounted out of hand? We may well be on fringes not only beyond belief, but beyond comprehension. The nets are cast far and wide.

One of the many fascinating chapters, "Termination and Terror," gruesomely illustrates the convoluted nature of our subject matter. Redfern chronologically relates the bizarre behavior of some employees and persons associated with the top-secret work of a defense company known as Marconi Electronic Systems. Where officialdom "sees" accidents and suicides, objective journalists and researchers might "see" murders made to look like accidents and suicides. Nineteen deaths are acknowledged in this chapter: three by car accident; one by shotgun; one by drug overdose; three by fatal falls; four by carbon monoxide poisoning; two by electrocution; one by suffocation; and two by drowning. Add to this the Marconi scientist that dies as a result of tying one end of rope to a tree and looping the other end around his neck and driving off at high speed. Yet another crashes his car, loaded with extra containers of gasoline, into the brick wall of an empty cafeteria and completes our death toll.

Here is a sampling of those suicides and accidents...

November 1985 - Jonathan Walsh, 29, "fell" from his hotel room in Abidjan, West Africa. He had expressed a fear for his life. Verdict: Open.

August 1986 - Vimal Dajibhai, 24, found below the Clifton suspension bridge in Bristol. Verdict: Open.

January 1987 - After narrowly escaping a 1986 Christmas accident when his car violently, and inexplicably, left the roadway, Dr. John Britton, 52, was found in his garage, a victim of carbon monoxide poisoning. Verdict: Accident.

January 1987 - Richard Pugh, 37, found dead with his feet bound and a plastic bag over his head. Rope was tied around his body, coiling four times around his neck. Verdict: Accident.

February 1987 - Peter Peapell, 46, found dead from carbon monoxide poisoning in his Oxfordshire garage. Verdict: Open.

April 1987 - Shani Warren, 26, found face down in Taplow Lake, a noose around her neck, her mouth gagged with a blue scarf, her feet bound with tow rope, and her hands tied behind her back with spark plug cables. Verdict: Suicide.

April 1987 - David Greenhalgh, 46, suffered multiple injuries after a fall from a 40 foot high railway bridge on his way to work at Maidenhead, Berkshire. He died a few days later in the hospital.

August 1988 - Retired Army Brigadier Peter Ferry, 60, electrocuted in his company flat with electrical leads in his mouth. Verdict: Open.

August 1988 - Alistair Beckham, 50, found dead after being electrocuted in his garden shed with wires connected to his body and a handkerchief stuffed in his mouth. Verdict: Open.

It must be asserted here that "verifying" any "conspiracy theory" involves producing evidence, authenticating documentation, and evaluating statements and testimony.

Nick Redfern examines whistleblower testimony and deathbed confessions, official documents and secret memos, all in an effort to guide the reader safely beyond the warning signs, surveillance cameras, motion sensors, and armed guards at Area 51. Each page and chapter reveals history and secrets. Researchers and sleuths will find the bibliography and comprehensive index very useful.

There are primarily three types of enthusiasts studying the unknown and unexplained. "First Person" researchers seek to personally encounter paranormal phenomena. "Second Person" researchers directly contact other persons who have encountered the mysterious and often conduct on-site field investigations where these incidents have occurred. The largest group or "Third Person" researchers examine published accounts of mysteries. Some people fit into two or all three classifications of enthusiast.

Whatever your level of interest in the unknown and unexplained, you will find Area 51: The Revealing Truth of UFOs, Secret Aircraft, Cover-Ups & Conspiracies a compelling and worthwhile read. Highly recommended.

Project Blue Book Episode 2: "The Flatwoods Monster"

Well, I just got finished watching the second episode of the new History Channel show, Project Blue Book. The episode's title: "The Flatwoods Monster." If you know your UFO history, you'll know the story.

In the show, the Flatwoods Monster of West Virginia is portrayed nothing like the Flatwoods Monster (which is just a minor issue). The people of Flatwoods, however, are presented as distrusting, gun-toting nuts ready to blast the U.S. military with lead. None of which happened.

Also, we see one of the characters jump, or pushed, out of a window to her death. I've heard of TV companies being inspired by real events, but this is getting ridiculous. 

I wonder what the good people of Flatwoods are - tonight - thinking about the townsfolk who came before them and who have been portrayed in such a trigger-happy fashion.

That's my main gripe: the show-makers seem intent on making real people look bad. See my article at Mysterious Universe, in which I explain how, in episode 1, they portrayed a WWII hero as someone who had descended into mental illness and who needed to be shot up with meds. Pure bullshit.

On the plus side, the chick on chick action is getting closer (despite a slight hiccup that set things back), so I'll have to keep watching...

About the new "Project Blue Book" show...

Well, I finally got around to watching the new Project Blue Book show.

I was hugely unimpressed and the show did a disservice to the real George Gorman, a pilot who had a UFO encounter, and who did not have PTSD and who was not shot with chemicals or had his mind wiped.

The one saving grace: the prospect of what looks to be a bit of hot girl on girl action on the horizon...

"A" Is For Adamski - A Great New Book


Over at Mysterious Universe, I review the new book from Greg Bishop and Adam Gorightly: "A" is for Adamski, which is excellent! Here's how my review begins:

“A” is for Adamski is an excellent new book from UFO authors / Flying Saucer historians Adam Gorightly and Greg Bishop. As you may have already guessed from the title of this large, approximately 400-pages-long book, it is focused on the Contactee movement. It chiefly covers the “Golden Age” of the long-haired Space Brothers, as the authors describe it. They are are talking about 1947 to 1978. And, as you will also likely have deduced, the book is presented in an A-Z style. Both Greg and Adam have a longstanding interest in – and a fascination for – the era of the Contactee and those human-looking aliens from Venus and elsewhere who warned of atomic war and the end of civilization. Allegedly, of course…

My New Book, "Area 51," Published Today



Published today is my new book, Area 51: The Revealing Truth of UFOs, Secret Aircraft, Cover-Ups & Conspiracies.

Here's the info from the publisher:

 It’s no secret that, roughly 100 miles north northwest of Las Vegas, in the middle of a remote dessert, sits an extension of the Edwards Air Force facility commonly known as Area 51, but its clandestine purpose and operations remain shrouded in secrecy. It’s a highly classified, restricted area, but, cloaked in conspiracy theories, its history and true function remain a mystery. Is it only devoted to flight testing experimental aircraft and building black ops weapons systems as some contend? Or is it home to a dead alien, crashed UFOs, and extraterrestrial technology…? Or all of the above?
Taking a thorough review of the historical record, eyewitness accounts, whistleblower testimony, and deathbed confessions, Area 51: The Revealing Truth of UFOs, Secret Aircraft, Cover-Ups and Conspiracies peers behind the classified secrets to understand the nature, history, and scope of the most controversial base in the United States. Redfern investigates the Cold War years, U-2 spy plane, SR-71 Blackbird, and chemical and nuclear weapon research as well as the base’s link to an extraterrestrial presence on Earth, reports of alien autopsies, recovery of non-terrestrial spacecraft, and attempts to duplicate the fantastic, alien technology.
From UFOs to secret aircraft and the CIA, shadowy government programs and unexplained events surrounding Area 51 are illuminated, including …
  • The government’s Nevada land-grab at Paradise Ranch
  • The U-2, the Blackbird, and the A-12 tests, refinements, and flights
  • The Robert Scott Lazar revelations
  • Roswell Incident and Project Mogul
  • The development of “black helicopters”
  • The “Autopsies – Bodies Unknown Origin 47” file
  • Intelligence gathering through ESP, parapsychological, and mind control
  • Secret research on teleportation
  • Vast, hollowed-out chambers, tunnels, and hidden underground facilities
  • And much, much more!!!

    "Believe In Us, But Not Too Much"

    Those were the words allegedly spoken by an alien being to U.S. police-officer Herbert Schirmer, in the early hours of a fateful night in December 1967. And, here's the story...

    "The Cured" - Reviewed




     Over at Mysterious Universe, I review a 2017 zombie movie called The Cured. It's a cool movie which avoids the typical zombie-style scenarios and gives the subject a fresh, new approach...
