Operating out of a secluded office deep in the hills of his home state of West Virginia, the prolific Barker single-handedly kept public interest focused on UFOs during it leanest years, and introduced many themes still discussed and investigated by today’s paranormal and conspiracy researchers:the “interdimensional” theory of UFOs; the shapeshifting nature of creature entities such as Mothman, the Flatwoods Monster, and Bigfoot; the cryptic terror of the Men in Black; and the mystery of the Philadelphia Experiment.
"An interesting read!"
This book was originally printed in small quantities and hence became very rare, fetching enormous prices. Now, for the first time, it is being made widely available to the general public. Inside, one finds many intriguing details about Mothman that previously escaped attention. This 2012 edition features new introductions by noted paranormal researchers Allen Greenfield, James Moseley, and Andy Colvin.
"A Wonderfully Moving Story About Mothman"
Men in Black: The Secret Terror Among Us was the last major work by West Virginia author Gray Barker, a legendary figure in the history of ufology. In many respects, this is the sequel to his earlier best sellers They Knew Too Much About Flying Saucers (a chronicle of the harassment faced by early UFO researchers) and The Silver Bridge (Barker's on-the-scene investigation of the Mothman events of the 1960s). Since Barker died a year after the release of MIB: Secret Terror, it was not widely distributed.
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.
"Jessup Fate Still a Mystery"
In this Saucerian roundtable discussion, several luminaries in the paranormal field offer their thoughts on the Inner Earth theory. Does the subterranean world support several different races of sentient beings, as well as impressive underground cities linked by underground tunnels? Do surface dwellers sometimes stumble upon above-ground openings to this subterranean realm? Do we often meet the denizens of the underworld and not even know it?
In these pages, Barker deftly explores the lore of the Philadelphia Experiment, offering revelations on a variety of notorious characters, such as Carlos Allende, James Wolfe, Leon A. Seoul, Dr. Franklin Reno, Michael Ann Dunn, the Oppenheimer brothers, and William L. Moore, whose books on the Roswell UFO crash, the Bermuda Triangle, and the Philadelphia Experiment made him the highest grossing UFO author of all time.
"Narrator makes this book easy to listen to."
New Saucerian presents one of the rarest of all Gray Barker titles, Selected for Abduction. Here Barker covers the best UFO sightings from 1981, including gripping "abductions" and "MIB attacks". In traversing this artifact, one senses Barker was perhaps the first serious UFO publisher to give credence to "alien abduction". Following his death soon after the publication of this book, several high-profile abductees and hypnosis-based researchers filled the vacuum.
New Saucerian proudly presents perhaps the most famous flying saucer book ever: Gray Barker's They Knew Too Much About Flying Saucers! From flying saucers to the underground denizens of Lemuria, it's all here in this ufological classic.
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.
This smorgasbord of high strangeness delves into alarming matters such as Bigfoot surveillance of livestock and humans, the kidnapping of prospectors and hikers by Sasquatch, and the mystifying aerial lights that seem to provide "cover" for these dastardly deeds.
"Tales of Conflict...look elsewhere"
Following the appearance of flying saucers in 1947, the world experienced a wave of UFOs for several years. By 1955, however, sightings appeared to have dropped significantly.
New Saucerian unveils its latest ufological classic, Gray Barker's Book of Adamski, an in-depth look at George Adamski, perhaps the most famous UFO contactee who ever lived. The Book of Adamski contains writings by George Adamski and various ufologists who knew him personally, such as Gray Barker, Desmond Leslie, Alice K. Wells, and Michael G. Mann.
"I'm interested but there has to be a better book."
New Saucerian proudly presents the classic Gray Barker's Book of Saucers, a compendium of interesting 1960s UFO cases. This reprint has been handled with the utmost care, providing an exact facsimile of the original book - a wonderful addition to any saucerer's collection.
In 1952, Gray Barker became a state representative in the first civilian UFO group, the International Flying Saucer Bureau (IFSB), headed by a World War II veteran named Albert K. Bender. Bender, who had been stationed at Fort George Meade (home of the NSA), and Langley Field (today's aerial drone headquarters), seemed to be genuinely interested not only in UFOs, but also in the strange psychic phenomena surrounding their appearances.
In the year 1984, many Americans began to fear that the "surveillance state" predicted by George Orwell might be coming to pass. As a result, legendary writer and ufologist Gray Barker decided to revisit - and hopefully encapsulate - the strange case of Albert K. Bender, who was famously "hushed up" by three Men in Black in 1953 - despite heading up the largest and most successful civilian UFO organization in the world.
In 1953, the headquarters of the International Flying Saucer Bureau, a highly successful UFO research organization, suddenly closed its doors and ceased operation. The founder declared that the UFO mystery had been solved! Gray Barker, the organization's chief investigator, discovered that the closing had been preceded by a visit from three strange men - dressed entirely in black. What secret did this mysterious trio reveal, and why did they threaten those who knew it?
New Saucerian presents a fine reprint of the rare flying saucer classic, "Gray Barker at Giant Rock," a colorful look at the UFO contactee conventions held at Giant Rock, California in the 1950s and '60s.
