Publisher's Summary

New Saucerian is honored to present Gray Barker's The Strange Case of Dr. M.K. Jessup, the very first book ever published about the suspicious death of early UFO researcher M.K. Jessup, and his possible relationship to the Philadelphia Experiment.

Jessup's own book, The Case For the UFO, perhaps the first to argue that UFOs were an ongoing terrestrial phenomena, had become a blockbuster, and was reprinted by the Varo Corporation, under the auspices of the U.S. Navy.

The Varo Edition contained unusual annotations by a strange man, Carlos Allende, who claimed to have witnessed the Philadelphia Experiment, and to have been tutored by Albert Einstein. Allende openly suspected Jessup of involvement in the experiment, leading to interesting interchanges, moves, and countermoves.

In these pages, Barker analyzes such correspondences, and deftly navigates the sticky terrain of Jessup's mysterious rise and fall, while raising doubts about the official story. Did Jessup really kill himself, or was it "self-murder"? Or, did Jessup kill his attacker and steal his identity? And was that attacker the real Carlos Allende?

This special 2014 edition features a fascinating introduction by the late, eminent ufologist Eugenia Macer-Story as well as the original introductions to the 1963, 1967, and 1973 editions. Also included are new and intriguing contributions from researchers George Knapp, David Paulides, David J. Halperin, Jeffery Pritichett, Anthony Bragalia, Robert Goerman, Anna Genzlinger, and John A. Keel.

    "Jessup Fate Still a Mystery"

    Very little of this book actually analyzes the fate of Jessup. Instead, it contains a large dosage of character sketches of some shady associates, and a handful of accusations. The real questions about his fate are never answered, but plenty of opinions are offered, as if to further fan and excite the notion of foul play and mysterious intervention by unseen, unchecked forces. The only solid material offered is a large recitation of Jessup's own writings, which, of course, are available in his own works in their full context. This book, however bland, does tend to persuade the reader that the Varo edition and the Philadelphia Experiment are both hoaxes, so it is interesting from that standpoint.
