Years ago I read Whitley Strieber's "Communion." I haven't read a whole lot about aliens (except for science fiction of course!) and encounters since then.

For those of you who do believe it is possible that extra terrestrials have visited Earth, do you have any book recommendations about alien encounters? Books that would be considered non-fiction, even if they are not necessarily classified as such.

I know there is plenty available online - and things that I have read and watched (testimonials) have certainly piqued my interest.

Thanks!

Yeah. 7 billion people on earth, and aliens somehow managed to probe the one anus belonging to Whitley Striber, who--SHOCKER--just so happened to be an author who writes books about aliens. Gee, with 1 in 7 billion odds of landing a jackpot like that, Mr. Striber is obviously raking in millions in Vegas.

You might find the following interesting:

Jacques Vallée - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
John Edward Mack - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Psychosocial hypothesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I suspect a lot of these experiences (including Streiber's, assuming he didn't just make it all up for $$) are due to hypnopompic hallucinations ... as were the incubus/succubus phenomenon in the middle ages. Back then we had demons; today we have greys.

Keep it civil, people. We are allowed to have discussions and we are allowed to our own opinions, but I get the final say if someone steps over the line here. I am older and civility and manners STILL MATTER.

I once watched X Files on Alien Abduction, and could not sleep the rest of the night. I have seen many unexplained things at night in the desert, once at Lake Powell, a huge fireball, like a meteor, but it swerved, even my Uncle could not explain it.

I would not rule it out.

Check out Stan Romaneks books.
He's the guy who claimed he videos a alien his window.

His story is really interesting. Basically claims he was/is being sent messages.
Stanromanek.com ---his site

"Messages" his first book was really good.

His next books didn't interest me much.

Aw come on people. The new norm is that aliens are coming from the center of the earth where they have lived for million/billions of years......Their not driving far at all.

Are you writer? There are many clips on youtube and talk shows that talk about this.

One of them was on Coast to Coast AM :


The Coast to Coast AM : Nick Redfern : Men in Black Phenomenon. That should be enough ideas if you are writing you own book.


Coast to Coast AM : Nick Redfern : Men in Black Phenomenon - YouTube


There are other videos and clips on youtube on this subject.

Not if the abductions are in country or a remote areas . If it in the city or suburb there is going to be many people seeing the UFO.

There is no way you can not be seen in the city or suburb.No advance race would do abductions in the city or suburb , just asking to be seen.
