West Virginia, 1966. For thirteen months the town of Point Pleasant is gripped by a real-life nightmare that culminates in a tragedy that makes headlines around the world. Strange occurrences and sightings, including a bizarre winged apparition that becomes known as the Mothman, trouble this ordinary American community. And journalist John Keel, arriving to investigate the freakish events, soon finds himself an integral part of an eerie and unfathomable mystery.
"Smart, compelling, disturbing"
In the classic Our Haunted Planet, John A. Keel brings into chilling focus strange truths about the Earth and its mysterious inhabitants. Could an unseen, prehuman race have taken careful measures to remain hidden from surface dwellers? Are they still watching us from their secret hiding places, manipulating and misleading us, using us for their own entertainment, and controlling our actions?
"Keel's 2nd best work"
The Complete Guide to Mysterious Beings is a comprehensive encyclopedia of the unexplained, with incredible eyewitness accounts of strange creatures from around the globe.
"Glad to have it read to me"
Strange Mutants of the Twenty-First Century contains Keel's very first ruminations on Mothman, as well as a variety of strange reports on black "demon" dogs, phantom cats, Bigfoot and other North American giants, flying humanoids, flying saucers, flying snakes, and even stranger mutants that Keel believed reside with us on Earth.
"Sasquatch lovers unite!"
Charles Fort, a writer in the 1920s, concluded that the Earth was "owned" by someone or something. Ivan Sanderson, a famed biologist in the 1960s, said that this planet was a "farm" and that we were the crop. Millions of people around the world have had startling encounters with the "tricksters", such as the Men in Black (MIB), fairies and elves, snallygasters, Mothmen, aliens and "spacemen", and hairy, abominable creatures that all seem to vanish into thin air. With sharp wit and unique insight, John A. Keel has spent a lifetime investigating and studying these age-old mysterious and the peculiar forces behind them.
"Did not finish!"
John Keel's Strange Creatures From Time and Space, originally published in 1970 with artwork by Frank Frazetta, is a comprehensive encyclopedia of monsters from around the world, including: Fantastic flying saucer occupants; True psychic phenomena; Phantom killers of people and livestock; The full story of West Virginia's man-bird, "Mothman"; The elusive "Bigfoot", Sasquatch, and Yeti; Giants of Minnesota and the Appalachians; Sea serpents and lake creatures; Vampires and werewolves.
"Anti-science, no thanks"
If you are wondering if this is yet another quack self-help book, you are wrong! The proof is in the pudding. No one can look at the life of John A. Keel and not see success. Raised poor on a rural farm in upstate New York, Keel arrived in New York City with less than a dollar in his pocket, yet rose to prominence and lived to be a ripe old age, freely enjoying the benefits of licensing his thought-provoking work to Hollywood.
Flying Saucer to the Center of Your Mind is a collection of magazine articles and lectures by the man many consider to be not only the 20th century’s premiere investigator of all things unusual and “Fortean,” but also our very own 20th-century “Mark Twain”: John A. Keel. Many of the articles in this anthology and its companion volumes, "The Outer Limits of the Twilight Zone" and "Searching for the String," were revolutionary, and explored ideas popularized in Keel’s classic books.
"Historical overview w/ rare details plus analysis"
In this audiobook, John Keel displays the keen observational skills and investigative tenacity that long made him the enfant terrible of ufology.
"Third in an excellent trilogy on UFOs & humanity"
In the book, John Keel displays the keen observational skills and investigative tenacity that made him the enfant terrible of ufology for decades. In this no-holds-barred analysis - much of it written decades ago - Keel shreds many of the sacred-cow beliefs still held in ufological and cryptozoological circles today and presents theories so radical that they are only now becoming accepted: the 4-D or interdimensional thesis; the breakaway civilization theory; the possible role of ancient aliens in human history....
