suggested books


This is a short list of books that I strongly recommend. I tried to keep the focus on the abduction lore, but there are few outlying subjects too. There're a lots more out there that should probably get added, and I suspect I'll continue to add to this list. I have read all these books and they are listed in no particular order.

Jacques Vallee

    CONFRONTATIONS: A Scientist's Search for Alien Contact

    DIMENSIONS: A Casebook of Alien Contact

    REVELATIONS: Alien Contact and Human Deception

These three books make up a trilogy that totally blew my mind when I read them back to back to back in the early 90's. Each are amazing, and collectively they changed the way I view the overall phenomenon.

Whitley Strieber

    The Key: A True Encounter

    Communion: A True Story

    Solving the Communion Enigma: What Is To Come

    The Communion Letters

Whitley gets a lot of grief within this insulated little "community" of UFO weirdos. Say what you will, but this guy works hard to keep the discussion at a very high level.

Budd Hopkins

    Sight Unseen: Science, UFO Invisibility and Transgenic Beings

    Intruders: The Incredible Visitations at Copley Woods

Debbie Jordan and Kathy Mitchell

    Abducted!: The Story of the Intruders Continues

This is a follow up to Budd Hopkins' book INTRUDERS, written by the women who experienced the direct events covered in that book. A fascinating companion.

    Visitors From Time: The Secret of the UFOs

Michelle LaVigne-Wedel and Paul Wedel

    The Alien Abduction Survival Guide: How to Cope with Your ET Experience

    The Alien Abduction Reference Guide: 100 Alien Encounters Explored

These are probably favorite two books in this list. They are simple and straightforward. They come from a heart felt place, and they haven't been picked thru by any editor. Fascinating stuff.

Mike, have you read Passport to Magonia by Jacques Vallee? It's a hard book to find for less than $40, but must be a good read. Graham Hancock expanded on the ideas there in his book Supernatural, which I recommend. The convergence of shamanic journeys, psychedelic trips, UFOs, elves and fairies of folklore is a compelling argument for a broader view of these phenomena.
