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!

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.
