Publisher's Summary

In this updated and expanded second edition, Ryan Sprague revisits many and introduces new stories of those who have seen extraordinary things in our skies and how these incredible events have changed them.

While reports of UFOs and close encounters are littered with dates, times, and descriptions, they rarely focus on the people who've had the experience. Could both the positive and negative implications, whether subtle or revelatory, further our knowledge of what these phenomena represent?

Through detailed testimony from credible witnesses and insight from those in the psychological, academic, and scientific fields, Somewhere in the Skies: A Human Approach to the UFO Phenomenon weaves together a story of stories, attempting to get to the heart of these mysteries one experience at a time.

A pleasant surprise. A really good book.

Ryan does a great job of telling stories.

The approach is fresh. The passion for judgement free investigations was inspiring.

Almost a feel of the old Keel books.

Well worth the time.

A new take on familiar themes

Self-identified UFO "experiencers" have been telling stories for many decades--this collection presents new tales about this old theme but without new insights into the phenomenon itself. While it's difficult to dismiss all of these storytellers as dishonest or delusional, it's also difficult to listen to their outlandish stories about sightings, abductions, and spiritual awakenings without wanting more skepticism and objectivity from the author. What, for example, is the difference between a reliable narrator and an unreliable one? Should we take seriously each and every UFO story, or should we be selective? Are stories themselves ever useful evidence --or proof--of a particular phenomenon? Frankly, there's no shortage of tall tales out there for people who are willing to listen to them, but listening doesn't necessarily get us closer to understanding what, if anything, is actually happening in the skies.
