George Van Tassel's FBI File: Now Available Online

Back in the 1980s I got a copy of the FBI's file on 1950s-era UFO Contactee George Van Tassel. As of yesterday, the FBI have now placed the 300-pages-plus file at their website, The Vault. Here's the link, where you can download the file as a PDF.

Copyright Infringement...

Despite what some people think, writing books does not make you a millionaire. Which brings me to what I'm about to say now. Check out this website (link below) which has infringed my copyright by placing a number of my books at their site as PDFs and making them available for free, and which I found out about yesterday.

As well as being a passion and something I love doing, this is also my job, I'm not a fucking charity, and this action potentially affects my ability to earn royalties from those copies which are copyright infringed and being provided free. 

If you are an author/writer I recommend you check out the site, as there are numerous books listed which are also now under copyright infringement.

The large list includes the books of good friend Greg Bishop, Richard Dolan, Philip Coppens, Graham Hancock. Jacques Vallee, Kevin Randle and it goes on and on.

Check it out and see if your books are up there as PDFs and being provided for free:

Here's the link.

PS: When I complained they quickly removed my books....

Flying Saucers from the Kremlin: Reviewed

Robert Goerman does a great review of my new book: Flying Saucers from the Kremlin: UFOs, Russian Meddling, Soviet Spies & Cold War Secrets.

Flying Saucers from the Kremlin: UFOs, Russian Meddling, Soviet Spies & Cold War Secrets
by Nick Redfern

Paperback: 242 pages

Publisher: Lisa Hagan Books (June 9, 2019)

Review by Robert A. Goerman

Some governments need enemies. There must be reasons for keeping vital secrets and building invincible armies. Enemies justify propaganda and deception. Nowhere was this more apparent than during the Cold War (1947-1991) between the United States of America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Humanity feared extinction from nuclear war. American schoolchildren practiced surviving atomic weapons by diving under their desks in futile "Duck and Cover" drills. Many countries constructed fallout shelters. The antics of America's CIA and Russia's KGB mirrored Mad magazine's "Spy vs. Spy" comic strip created by cartoonist Antonio Prohías.

Rich and powerful men avoid losing wealth and influence.

Flying Saucers from the Kremlin documents whether the USSR used the mythos of "flying saucers" to further the communist agenda and provoke hysteria and paranoia in the western world. It also explores the countermeasures of the United States and its allies. But this book is not a skeptical look at the UFO mystery. Nick Redfern begins with an important disclaimer: "There are real UFOs and there are deliberately-crafted lies concerning UFOs."

Learning the cloak-and-dagger accounts in this book is important for readers eager to finally set the UFO record straight. Governments on both sides of this Cold War were not suppressing knowledge and evidence of extraterrestrial visits to Earth. These clandestine activities developed to perpetrate and prevent espionage and psychological warfare.

So-called "contactees" and flying saucer clubs were covertly scrutinized, infiltrated, and intimidated. Official records verifying these facts were not created as part of a disinformation culture by agents with the foresight to know that future citizens could examine classified materials using a Freedom of Information Act. Reports were composed to be pertinent to the attitudes, perceptions, and context of the relevant time periods. These documents are honest glimpses into our past.

It did not help that the "space people" loved communists and communism.

Have we been deliberately misled about many prominent UFO mysteries?

Nick Redfern is constantly blazing new trails to research. Flying Saucers from the Kremlin held my interest captive. Redfern is the hottest ticket in town.
