New Saucerian proudly presents the original audiobook of Albert K. Bender's Flying Saucers and the Three Men--the book that started off the Men in Black (MIB) craze. Bender tells the story of how he was hushed up by the mysterious MIB. Were these men from outer space, inner Earth, or the government?

One of the Strangest Contactee Accounts

I love books about contactees from the 50's and their experiences. Albert Bender's account of his interactions with beings from other worlds might be the strangest. The range and scope of UFO lore can be found here, abduction, interactions with beings from another world, spaceships, men in black, telepathy. Bender's account is hard to totally wrap your head around. It's uniqueness may prove its validity, or it could be a hoax entirely, given that Bender liked to scare his friends with a "house of horrors."

This is a fun, fast listen. I recommend it to any UFO/Extraterrestrial skeptic and enthusiast alike.

Old Man Trips Balls

I enjoyed this book. It was well spoken and entertaining. If you want a book about a man who loses his shit over aliens (my take) this is for you

Painfully dull and implausible but...

This was a slog. I usually enjoy these old saucer books but this is one of the foundational texts of MIB lore. They Knew Too Much About Flying Saucers by Gray Barker is a better written and more engaging narrative. I suspect it's Barkers more speculative and popular book guessing at the MIBs than Benders explicitly "contactee" style story which captured imaginations of the time. Still, better to have it on Audible than to have to trudge through this thing by force of will.

Very Interesting. Don't let its dated content distract you

The Sci-fi fantasy nature of Bender's story with its narrative within a real-life parameters of an eccentric chap in the late 1950s, is charming - and as the story develops, alarming. Its B movie science fiction presentation needs to be seen through - to allow you to consider its potential truth - that the earth, and humankind itself, is at best a set of resources developed, used, and farmed by multiple sets of ancient entities. And at worst, an ant hill which will be laid waste by marauders, who have already destroyed other planets - simply because they can.

A classic that becomes more clear as time goes by.

A fascinating look into what the "Men In Black" really are. Were they manipulating the author or telling him the truth? I believe there are few benifits to tell him anything. Their message is for us, the audience...but what is the message?
