New Saucerian proudly presents Gray Barker's underground classic, Bigfoot Shootout! Terrifying Tales of Interspecies Conflict
This 1983 book, which was way ahead of its time (30 years before shows like Shooting Bigfoot), features Barker's musings on the unusual intersection of Bigfoot, UFOs, and firearms as well as special reports submitted to him at his Saucerian headquarters in Riffle, West Virginia.
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.
Does Bigfoot occasionally kidnap, terrorize, hypnotize, and attack human beings? Can he shapeshift or disappear before your very eyes? If you shoot him point-blank with a machine gun, will he just laugh at you? Are the Apemen stockpiling weapons stolen from unwitting civilians, hoping to turn the tables at some future date?
These questions and more are answered in this special 2015 reprint, which features intriguing contributions from researchers like Jim Moseley, Dennis Pilichis, Fred Beck, Janet and Colin Bord, Brent Raynes, Stan Gordon, Roger Patterson, Justin Smeja, Jeffery Pritchett, Dr. Ogden Pearl, and William S. Burroughs.
What disappointed you about Gray Barker's Bigfoot Shootout!?
The title if not a misdirection is an outright lie. This is a book about that has about 1/1000th conflicts and 999/1000th psychobabble. If you are looking for information about primates in North America having conflicts with humans this is not the book for you. If you want to know about bigfoots piloting UFOs for the Greys, telepathic bigfoots giving humans messages about saving the world (and great recipes for hot chili), cloaking bigfoots, indian spirits making appearances, gnomes, elementals, great skyspirits, dragons, bigfoots hypnotizing you, bigfoots being a race of martians who are teleporting around the universe, witches, golems, orcs, blue orbs, red orbs, yellow orbs, vision quests, dreams, and lastly bigfoots being californian pot farmers...this is your book. I have never seen a more ridiculous collection of nonsense anywhere outside of a New Age doobie smoking convention...and I believe that bigfoot exists. I was duped by the title, dont waste your time on this nonsense and dont listen to the other reviewers unless you believe in this new age foolishness.
What was most disappointing about Gray Barker and Andrew Colvin ’s story?
The entire collection
Would you be willing to try another one of Brian Ackley’s performances?
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
yeah, it was cheap
Any additional comments?
Dont waste your time

This is a republishing of several different sources that could stand to have a better editor. It's nothing great and if you are in to high strangeness takes its nothing new. The narrator is pretty bad and the book really isn't quite worth the price, but if you want something strange it will suffice.
The information was on a whole informing and entertaining. I was off-put by the psycho-babel nonsense at the end. this last part did not seem to fit, not was it's inclusion explained. I do not feel that this audio book is worth what they charged, and I got a discount. Don't pay more than a few dollars
