Leap of Faith

Gordon Cooper

In this engaging memoir, Mercury 7 astronaut Cooper adds his compelling voice to the chorus of critics charging a U.S. governmental coverup of the UFO phenomenon. Written in the first person with Henderson (coauthor of And the Sea Will Tell), this book will challenge UFO skeptics and believers alike. On the one hand, Cooper states that, despite many reports to the contrary, neither he nor other astronauts saw UFOs in outer space. On the other hand, he reports that in 1951, as a young air force pilot based in Germany, he chased saucer-shaped UFOs, and that groups of UFOs passed over the base daily at speeds far superior to any manmade craft. In 1957, at Edwards Air Force Base in the California desert, Cooper was given photographs of a “classic saucer” that had reportedly landed at the top-secret military installation. He sent the photos to a Pentagon general, but never heard about the matter again. In the late 1970s, Cooper (who’s now an aeronautical designer) unsuccessfully tried to launch a research company devoted to free worldwide energy transmission using Nikola Tesla’s discoveries, as well as to advanced medical devices and other projects. His partner in this venture, Valerie Ransone, claims to receive scientifically useful telepathic transmissions from extraterrestrial sources. The story gets a lot weirder, as Cooper agrees to join Ransone in the Arizona desert for a telepathically arranged rendezvous with a UFO. Joining them at this alleged meeting (which was canceled) was Atlas missile aerospace engineer Dan Fry, who claims to have flown over Texas on board a UFO in 1950. On a more mundane level, Cooper’s reminiscence offers an exciting insider’s look at Projects Mercury, Gemini and Apollo, full of startling details about NASA’s internal politics, disasters, glitches and close calls. 16 pages of color photos. (Aug.)

the day after roswell.png

The Day After Roswell

Col. Philip Corso

The Day After Roswell is Colonel Philip J. Corso’s accounting of the controversial events that took place on a desert night in 1947. Roswell is the small, New Mexican town of renown where, purportedly, a UFO crashed into terra firma, scattering debris and extra-terrestrial bodies over the desert floor like so much weird candy from a shattered pinata. If the notorious Area 51 can be likened to the ufologists’ Holy Grail, then Roswell is akin to its Bethlehem, the place where it all started (in the dramatic, if not the actual, sense). According to Corso, he’s been there from almost the beginning.

Clear Intent/The UFO Cover-up

L. Fawcett, Barry Greenwood

Greenwood, Barry & Fawcett, Lawrence. (1992). UFO Cover-Up. NY: Barnes & Noble Books. (Reprinted from Clear Intent by Barry Green and Lawrence Fawcett. 1984. NJ: Prentice Hall)The best book on the once-controversial but now widely recognized extent of secret government interest in UFOs. Working from a large quantity of FOIA’d declassified documents, the authors give an interesting “just the facts” style of presentation of the revealed information. Re-published as The UFO Cover-up.

future magic.png

Future Magic

Dr. Robert L. Forward

Bob Forward describes things that are theoretically possible — not ruled out by our current understanding of science — but are so far advanced from our current technology that they seem like magic — or science fiction — to us today. But remember, most of the technology we have today would have seemed like black magic only a century ago.

top secret majic.png

Top Secret/Majic

Dr. Stanton Friedman

(Stanton T. Friedman, Marlowe, 1996, 272 pages, 5th printing, hardcover, $23). is the most authoritative book about the Eisenhower Briefing Document (EBD), describing a top secret research, development and intelligence operation. It is built on close to fifteen years of research with archives, historians and authentication experts looking at the real chance that the government and our Presidents have been informed, involved and covering-up since 1947.

crash at corona.png

Crash at Corona

Dr. Stanton Friedman

On July 8, 1947, the U.S. Army stated that the remains of a “flying disk” had been recovered from a ranch near Corona, New Mexico. Now, this book exposes the government’s successful 40-year conspiracy to conceal the truth behind America’s most documented UFO encounter.

Above top secret.png

Above Top Secret

Timothy Good

Above Top Secret proves that alien aircraft have been invading the earth’s air space and such incursions threaten our most secure defense systems and our basic scientific and religious beliefs. Crammed with the testimony of reliable people. 16 pages of black-and-white photos.

alien contact.png

Alien Contact

Timothy Good

In his international bestseller Above Top Secret, Good showed evidence that the U.S. and other governments have channeled millions into UFO research. Now, Good exposes the startling results of this research, based on secret government files and scores of interviews with key U.S. military, scientific, and intelligence personnel. Photos and illustrations.



Dr. Steven Greer

For the first time ever, over five dozen top-secret military, government, intelligence and corporate witnesses to secret projects tell their true stories which disclose the greatest covert program in world history. This explosive testimony by actual government insiders proves that UFOs are real, that some are of extraterrestrial origin and that super-secret programs have energy and propulsion technologies that will enable humanity to begin a new civilization- A civilization without pollution, without poverty – A civilization capable of traveling among the stars. This is not just a story about UFOs, ET s and secret projects: It is the story of how 50 years of human evolution have been deferred and how these secret projects contain the real solution to the world energy crisis, the environmental crisis and world poverty.

extraterrestrial contact.png

Extraterrestrial Contact

Dr. Steven Greer

The absolute best UFO/ET cases and evidence. The best US and other government smoking gun documents related to UFOsAn expose of who is maintaining UFO secrecy and WHY. A thought-provoking overview of why ETs are here, what are the implications of disclosing this knowledge to the world and how the world will change once the truth is known

the ufo evidence.png

The UFO Evidence

Richard Hall

In July 1964, under Hall’s editorship, NICAP released The UFO Evidence, a classic overview of the phenomenon from 1947 as it looked to conservative proponents. The UFO Evidence II picks up the story from then. The result is a comprehensive, intelligent, sober overview of an implacable mystery which is declared over every other Tuesday, but which resolutely refuses either to go away or to lend itself to genuine (as opposed to excitedly asserted) prosaic accounting. Like its predecessor, UFOEII focuses on the aspects that comprise the enigma’s core, from reports by high-quality witnesses to physical and physiological effects to the strikingly recurrent, often subtle patterns repeatedly demonstrated worldwide.

unconventional flying objects.png

Unconventional Flying Objects

Paul Hill

To the degree that the engineering characteristics of UFOs can be estimated by empirical observation, in this reviewer’s opinion the above-referenced, recently-published book by Paul Hill provides the most reliable, concise summary of engineering-type data available.1 The data were compiled over decades of research by a Chief Scientist-Manager at NASA’s Langley Research Center2 who acted as an informal clearinghouse for UFO-related data. The strength of the compilation lies in its thoughtful separation of wheat from chaff, and the analysis of the former into coherent patterns, including detailed calculations. Perhaps surprising to the casually interested, under careful examination the observations, rather than defying the laws of physics as naive interpretation might suggest, instead appear to be solidly commensurate with them, as the following discussion shows.

an alien harvest.png

An Alien Harvest

Linda Moulton Howe

“An Alien Harvest, told by Linda Howe, is as intriguing and absorbing as a good spy novel. She has had the energy ­ and guts ­ to pursue her field work. It is a compilation of challenging data. The issues it raises should concern all of us.” – Jacques Vallee, Computer Scientist and author of Dimensions and Anatomy of A Phenomenon

glimpses of other realities.png

Glimpses of Other Realities

Linda Moulton Howe

“As I read Glimpses of Other Realities, I found myself in an almost permanent state of excitement. For anyone who has so far managed to sleep through the increasing furor about non-human intelligence, I cannot recommend a better alarm clock than Linda Moulton Howe’s 2-volume book.” – Colin Wilson, British author, Mysteries.

the ufo experience.png

The UFO Experience

J. Allen Hynek

Cited by the New York Review of Books as “the best brief for visitation,” this classic study presents an analysis of UFO reports and concludes that many sightings cannot be easily dismissed.

the ufo controversy in america.png

The UFO Controversy in America

David Jacobs

In 1973 Dr. David M. Jacobs completed his doctoral dissertation in the field of intellectual history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison on the controversy over unidentified flying objects in America. A revised version of his dissertation was published by Indiana University Press as The UFO Controversy in America (1975) and it remains the only positive book toward UFOs published by an academic press.


Hyperspace, Beyond Einstein

Michio Kaku

Reissued in new covers, this is the run-away bestseller from one of the world’s leading theoretical physicists. Are there other dimensions beyond our own? Is time travel possible? Michio Kaku takes us on a tour of the most exciting work in modern physics, including research into the 10th dimension, time warps, and multiple universes, to outline what may be the leading candidate for the Theory of Everything.

Passport to the Cosmos

Krevin Randle, Donald Schmitt

In this sequel to their UFO Crash at Roswell (1991), Randle and Schmitt offer new witnesses and a revised chronology for the alleged crash of a UFO and its retrieval by the U.S. Air Force near Roswell, New Mexico, in July_ 1947. They shed new light on the two distinct sites where evidence of a crash was found, one only 35 miles from Roswell, where alien bodies and a strange craft were found, and the other much farther away, where rancher Mac Brazel discovered a huge amount of bizarre metallic debris. The ominous threats made by military personnel to civilians who had some knowledge of the event contrast sharply with the official cover story that only a weather balloon had been found. The cover-up was so effective, Randle and Schmitt say, that only a glimmer of the truth would begin to emerge years later. Several chapters demolish claims that the debris was from a weather balloon, a Japanese balloon bomb, a V-2 rocket test, or an experimental aircraft. George Eberhart –This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

the report on ufos.png

The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects


Capt. Edward J. Ruppelt’s The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects has acquired an almost mythic status. That status is well-deserved since the book is a carefully balanced synthesis of the late Ruppelt’s experiences as head of the sometimes infamous Project Blue Book. Under his direction, however, Blue Book did some creditable work. Even now, the most jaded ufologist would find Capt. Ruppelt’s an interesting read. Unfortunately, The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects is out of print. Interested readers should try searching used book stores, flea markets and library sales. The hardback was published in 1956 by Doubleday. The paperback was later published by Ace.

invisible residents.png

Invisible Residents

Ivan Sanderson

This book is a groundbreaking contribution to the study of the UFO enigma, originally published over 30 years ago. In this book, Sanderson, a renowned zoologist with a keen interest in the paranormal, puts forward the curious theory that “OINTS"-Other Intelligences-live under the Earth’s oceans. This underwater, parallel, civilization may be twice as old as Homo sapiens, he proposes, and may have “developed what we call space flight." Sanderson postulates that the OINTS are behind many UFO sightings as well as the mysterious disappearances of aircraft and ships in the Bermuda Triangle. What better place to have an impenetrable base than deep within the oceans of the planet? Yet, if UFOs, or at least some of them, are coming from beneath our oceans or lakes, does it necessarily mean that there is another civilization besides our own that is responsible? In fact, could it be that since WWII a number of underwater UFO bases have been constructed by the very human governments of our planet? Whatever their source, Sanderson offers here an exhaustive study of USOs (Unidentified Submarine Objects) observed in nearly every part of the world. He presents many well-documented and exciting case studies of these unusual sightings and more.

intelligernt life in the universe.png

Intelligent Life in the Universe

I.S. Shklovskii, Carl Sagan

In 1966 a youthful Carl Sagan co-authored the book Intelligent Life in the Universe with Russian astronomer I.S. Shklovskii. A virtual tome of evidence supporting the probability of extraterrestrial life, Intelligent Life in the Universe is an unquestioned masterpiece. The book is characterized by candid, forward thinking scientific discussion of a topic now too taboo for mainstream science. More importantly, it illustrates the extraordinary divergence between Sagan’s early beliefs and his later, considerably more pessimistic–and some might argue, politically motivated–views on the subject of ET life.

the ufo enigma.png

The UFO Enigma

Jacques Vallee

A comprehensive investigation of encounters with unidentified flying objects, all the more riveting because it is both skeptical and scrupulously objective. What facts do we have regarding UFOs? asks an international team of scientists headed by Sturrock (Physics/Stanford Univ.).

man made ufos.png

Man Made UFOs

Renato Vesco, David Childress

This has got to be one of the most thoroughly researched books that I have ever read. It contains some of the most obscure facts and details relating to the NAZI war machine during the second world war.The authors basically believe that all UFO sightings are in fact man-made machines which were first developed by the NAZI’s in the closing months of the war and that the Americans then moved all the secrets and scientist over to America, to continue with their work.There are lots of documents, photos, extracts from papers and quotes which do put over quite a convincing argument. However, the book avoids explaining the more strange UFO encounters and abduction stories.The book is very well written but can be hard work in places. I would recommend this book for people looking at alternative explanations for the UFO phenomena.
