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"
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!"
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!"
December 2012, a massive solar storm knocks out the power grid. Three hundred million Americans are suddenly faced with a survival situation. They have no water, electricity or fuel.

"EOTWAWKI or prepper fans will like..."
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"
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.
Stansbury is best known for the odd covered bridge that spans Stansbury Lake and goes nowhere, connecting no roads and serving no known purpose. The locals call it the Lakebridge. Very few know of its mysterious origins and fewer care to know more. Those visiting the town perhaps take a few snapshots and leave, their curiosity quelled by an uneasy feeling that they shouldn't think about it anymore.
"can't wait for the next book"
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.
