In the late 1950s and early 1960s, the heyday of classic saucering, the most popular UFO magazine in the world was Ray Palmer's Flying Saucers. The most popular column in this widely distributed periodical was "Chasing the Saucers", a series authored by literary great Gray Barker.
From his "secret" headquarters deep in the hills of West Virginia, Barker scoured newspapers and wire services from all over the world, bringing his fans the most up-to-date news on the latest UFO encounters and unusual "Fortean" events.
At times, sober and objective; at other times, intimate, speculative, and self-deprecating, Barker displays the full palette of his trade, drawing the listener into his own unique and fascinating world - the world of the saucers.
Listeners will learn much about what really happened in those halcyon days and what was going on behind the scenes of ufology. Barker's eye for detail and understanding of human psychology add special flair to this classic study of a true paranormal enigma.
This special 2015 edition provides in-depth coverage on several famous UFO cases (in many instances, the first reports ever generated about them), making Chasing the Flying Saucers an indispensable resource for today's paranormal investigator. Also featured are enlightening introductions from two of Barker's trusted friends and colleagues, Editor Rick Hilberg and Professor David J. Halperin.
