So you’ve decided that you care about aliens

As you may have read in the creepy New York Times the last weekend of Memorial Day, or in scary New York Times in December 2017 (!!!), UFOs – defined as unidentified flying objects – are very real, and the United States government certainly knows that. This does not mean for Of course that UFOs are aliens (many believe what is seen are military devices and / or super-secret drones), but that’s my personal belief. So, for as long, long-time, self-proclaimed ufologist and passionate about extraterrestrials, for my part, I am justified. I am also annoyed. I told you before, and no one took me seriously. Getting approved by the official document is actually the worst possible outcome related to aliens (except an invasion, lol), because everyone has to believe, and nobody cares anyway. Before when nobody cared and no one believed it, those of us who believed in it could consider ourselves better informed and therefore superior. Now we’re just sad.

On the one hand, I don’t want to reward someone who is only interested in aliens now that they have gained credibility with the general public. But on the other hand, the UFO community is literally die. (The bigger generation is also the Roswell generation, and with no vivid memory of that time, I fear we will lose contact !!!) I need all the allies I can get. So if you read one or both Times UFO stories and I left wanting to know more, I have a reading list for you. The truth is out there. Welcome.

UFO by Leslie Kean
Leslie Kean is legit. She co-wrote the Times’s UFO stories, and she’s a well-respected investigative journalist who, before embarking on aliens, wrote a book about the Burmese liberation struggle (among other things). UFO was originally released in 2010, and has become a nationwide bestseller, possibly because it reigns supreme. I read this book in one day with wide eyes and screaming. The sources (including many government officials and pilots) cited seem so credible, and the details so precise, that it is impossible to get out of it without thinking Something is in place.

Zone 51, by Annie Jacobsen
Annie Jacobsen is another good introductory ufologist author because she’s the real deal: she’s a journalist, author, and Pulitzer Prize finalist for her book. The brain of the Pentagon. As you might have guessed by the title, this book focuses on Area 51, Nevada’s obscure (but REAL!) Military base with alleged links to alien research and development. (Please note here that Roswell and Area 51 are not in the same place, nor in the same state. People often tell me that and I get angry. Roswell is a city in New Mexico, where some believe that a UFO crash landed (Area 51 is a Nevada government site.) This book is rather thick and it focuses a lot more on the secret side of government than the others on this list, but it’s still SHOCKING and worth your time. time.

Communion, by Whitley Strieber
Next to Barney and Betty Hill‘s, Whitley Strieber is the definitive alien abduction story, although he refrains from labeling it as such – detailing his kidnapping from a cabin in upstate New York in 1985, Strieber calls his captors “the visitors,” a demonstration restraint which (in my opinion) makes it all the more credible. I’m not really interested in kidnapping stories (you have to draw the line somewhere), but Communion is a classic and it’s embarrassing to be a UFO enthusiast who hasn’t read it.

Meeting in Rendlesham Forest, by Nick Pope
For the uninitiated, Nick Pope is THE British UFO guy. (In England, they take UFOs a lot more seriously than we do here, which I find inexplicable and hilarious when juxtaposed with, like, the royal family.) He worked in the government Department of Defense. British, where it was his literal job to investigate reports of UFO sightings. And this book is about the best British UFO sighting ever, if you ask me – known as “Rendlesham Forest incidentThat involves lots of military eyewitnesses, high radiation readings, and honestly what looks like a truly magnificent spacecraft. I like this one.

The day after Roswell, by William J. Birnes and Colonel Philip J. Corso
I love a book that describes itself as a ‘historical exposition’, which this one does, and you know what: true! Col. Philip J. Corso was an Army intelligence officer and member of President Eisenhower’s National Security Council To the time of the alleged crash of a spacecraft in Roswell, New Mexico (which I’m sure you know was in 1947), which means he was there. According to Corso, US military officials have taken pieces of spacecraft and retro-designed them, paving the way for many of today’s technologies! What! Why would he make that up ???

Roswell’s Witness, by Thomas J. Carey and Donald R. Schmitt
Okay, to be honest this is the craziest book I have ever read in my life. Of the books on this list, this is definitely the, uh, the most whimsical. (Think, for example, of full confessions on the deathbed of people who were supposed to be there when alien bodies were recovered in the Roswell crash landing, details of how they were buried in children’s coffins … it’s crazy.) The authors are not academics, so as much as researchers and longtime fans, and their websites look like this and this. If even 5% of the events described in this book actually happened, it would be an earth upheaval. Anyway, I’ve had the time of my LIFE reading this one, and so have you.
