Book Short Summary:

Aliens first visited Judy Clarke in 1952, when she was just nine months old. Since then, the visits have occurred approximately once every two years, and though she does not recall every detail, she does carry physical reminders and specific, vivid memories. Fear is often associated with beings not of the human world, but in this, Clarke’s experiences are very different. In Alien Encounters: A Lifetime Deal, writer, counselor, healer and nurse Judy L. Clarke reveals her enlightening, lifelong relationship with aliens in exacting, evidence-laden detail. She helps us to recognize the truth in our hearts and souls—and see that there is nothing to fear. The powers that be in our world, steeped as they are in ignorance, aggression and greed, are quick to react to the stories of abductees with laughter, ridicule, disbelief and horror. By that measure it is clear humans are not ready for the greater destiny shared by the many beings dwelling beyond earth, in space and in the spiritual plane. But the aliens in our skies are patiently waiting for us, watching us and, yes, implanting a select few of us with special gifts to help us be better people, gifts like kindness, healing, empathy, creativity, clairvoyance, clairaudience, telepathy and closeness to the God within. Clarke’s experiences, shown encounter by encounter and lesson by lesson, lead us to understand that if we open our eyes, hearts and minds, light will shine in—if we ask, we may indeed receive.

Book Short Summary:

Landing their ship on the planet Rodeo while screwing their brains out was probably a bad idea, but Zelda and Rollo aren?t sure they wouldn?t do it again. Now the ship needs fixing and the cargo is trashed. When Zelda heads off to see what sort of barter she can work out she finds that some negotiations require a bareback approach to her back door. And just for fun, the trader tosses in a closer-than-close encounter with wazzies. The fuzzy little demons join in the fun and change her views on what double penetration can be. ~~~~~ Excerpt ~~~~~ I stared at the image of Rodeo, the planet we were approaching, on the large monitor. It was pretty. Most of them are. Truth is, you can?t tell anything by staring at the images of planets unless you have a shitload of special filters, but I like to see the places I?m going to be walking on, get a sense of them, even if it doesn?t mean shit. Hey, it?s just a harmless quirk. Veteran space travelers are entitled to a few quirks. On the other side of our console area, I saw Rollo shuffling his light blue bulk into the navigator?s chair. He grinned and started strapping himself in. ?You know, Zelda, this one is going to be a rough entry.? I smiled at Rollo. ?Aren?t they all?? ?Any entry into an atmosphere is a little rough, but the atmosphere on this planet is what we technical types call lumpy.? ?Lumpy, Rollo? Really?? ?There are weird swirls distributed randomly throughout the middle regions that contain micropockets of energy. When we hit them it will fuck over our trim and make for a wild ride. Temporary loss of control and all that. Goddamn bouncy, I expect. I bet it makes predicting the weather hell too.? He toyed with some of the nav controls like he knew what he was doing. ?Zelda, are you sure you want to put down here?? That made me laugh. ?Seeing that the engines won?t get us to another place where they might be repaired? yeah, I kinda think we better. Floating around in space is fun only if it?s on purpose.? He shrugged. ?Okay then.? Rollo is a great partner and we are well matched for our work, which is running a rather rundown interstellar tramp cargo ship. It takes a special bonding for a crew to work and we were right there. Think about it. First, there?s the hassle of being partners in a venture that is rather shaky from the start?that?s always a source of tension. On top of that, the cargo ships that outfits like ours can afford tend to be slow and steady, as well as kind of dirty and held together with baling wire. That means the runs between systems can be rather long and boring. If you aren?t well matched? well, you hear those stories of ships found in deep space with the crew dead but no sign of intruders. Close confinement makes murder understandable. Happily, Rollo lacks the nasty habits that can make being confined in a small space with another creature for a long period of sheer torture and doesn?t seem to mind mine. On top of that, he?s a good cook if you don?t mind simple food. I like simple if it means I don?t have to cook. Rollo is a beautiful teal-blue Zand. I don't think I?ve met any other Zands, although I?ve read the little about them that?s been published. I met Rollo in a sleazy bar where he?d landed, having run out of money. I was there because my mate had quit, deserted me in the middle of a cargo run, hauling some crap in WONDER, which is my dodgy ship. I didn't like the bastard, but he was also my navigator. In all fairness, he quit because I couldn?t afford to pay him. Rollo suggested we form a partnership, which only costs me cash if we actually make any money and he gets sweat equity, although Zands don?t seem to sweat. Luckily we hit it off.

Book Short Summary:

Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke, author of Encounters With Star People, vowed as a teenager to follow in the footsteps of two 19th-century explorers, John L. Stephens and Frederick Catherwood, who brought the ancient Maya cities to the world’s attention. Dr. Clarke set out on a seven-year adventure (from 2003 through 2010) through Belize, Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico, collecting stories of encounters, sky gods, giants, little people, and aliens among the indigenous people. She drove more than 12,000 miles, visiting 89 archaeological sites (Stephens and Catherwood visited only 44) and conducting nearly 100 individual interviews. The result is an enthralling series of unique, original, true stories of encounters with space travelers, giants, little people, and UFOs. Sky People may very well change the way you perceive and experience the world.

An astonishing collection of stories of extraterrestrial abduction, time travel, and extraterrestrial sex. “Brad Steiger’s book does an excellent—indeed, essential—job of setting the scene and providing a foundation of the facts as they were known at the time it was written.

Alternately entertaining and terrifying, this is a book for anyone who has gazed into the night sky and wondered if we are alone in the universe.

Book Short Summary:

Have you ever looked at the night sky with its millions of stars and wondered whether there might be something living near one of those stars and looking back? When an exploratory craft from the planet Gaia picks up a weak, undecipherable signal from a distant backwater planet, the crew decides to take a risk and check it out. What they discover is Earth, a planet populated by the first sentient beings any Gaians have encountered beyond themselves. Even more intriguing, these beings may possess something missing from among the Gaians. The crew makes several attempts to contact and interact with humans, and eventually they find themselves approaching a secret US base located near Alice Springs. The Gaians struggle to work with these beings so unlike themselves, driven by emotion rather than reason and logic—but doing so may be their only hope of returning home. In this science fiction novel, a crew of explorers from the planet Gaia comes to Earth, where their first contact with humanity demonstrates the power of emotion.

Book Short Summary:

Examining the relationship between strangers, embodiment and community, Strange Encounters challenges the assumptions that the stranger is simply anybody we do not recognize and instead proposes that he or she is socially constructued as somebody we already know. Using feminist and postcolonial theory this book examines the impact of multiculturalism and globalization on embodiment and community whilst considering the ethical and political implication of its critique for post-colonial feminism. A diverse range of texts are analyzed which produce the figure of 'the stranger', showing that it has alternatively been expelled as the origin of danger - such as in neighbourhood watch, or celebrated as the origin of difference - as in multiculturalism. The author argues that both of these standpoints are problematic as they involve 'stranger fetishism'; they assume that the stranger 'has a life of its own'.

Book Short Summary:

Before the breakthrough of postcolonial studies, British science-fiction authors already saw the opportunity to discuss political and ethical issues of imperialism by projecting human history and behavior onto the alien 'Other.' In this thesis, the case studies of 15 novels of alien-encounter science fiction illuminate the treatment of colonial and postcolonial concepts - such as colonialism, neo-colonialism, Empire, paternalism, hybridity, mimicry and science and technology - as a means of conquest and resistance. The analysis also shows that the Empire is still a vital background for British science fiction. Thesis. (Series: Anglistik / Amerikanistik; English / American Studies - Vol. 35)

Book Short Summary:

“Deeply beautiful, and never simple.” — James Gleick, author of Time Travel: A History An unforgettable tour of the human condition that explores our universal need for belief to help us make sense of life, death, and everything in between. For Sarah Krasnostein it begins with a Mennonite choir on a subway platform, a fleeting moment of witness that sets her on a fascinating journey to discover why people need to believe in absolute truths and what happens when their beliefs crash into her own. Some of the people Krasnostein interviews believe in things many people do not: ghosts, UFOs, the literal creation of the universe in six days. Some believe in things most people would like to: dying with dignity and autonomy; facing up to our transgressions with truthfulness; living with integrity and compassion. By turns devastating and uplifting, and captured in snapshot-vivid detail, these six profiles — a death doula, a geologist who believes the world is six thousand years old, a lecturer in neurobiology who spends his weekends ghost hunting, the fiancé of a disappeared pilot and UFO enthusiasts, a woman incarcerated for killing her husband after suffering years of domestic violence, and Mennonite families in New York — will leave you convinced that the most ordinary-seeming people are often the most remarkable and that deep and abiding commonalities can be found within the greatest differences. Vivid, unconventional, entertaining, and full of wonder, The Believer interweaves these stories with compassion and empathy, culminating in an unforgettable tour of the human condition that cuts to the core of who we are as people, and what we’re doing on this earth.

Book Short Summary:

Harry Potter, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and the Left Behind series are but the latest manifestations of American teenagers' longstanding fascination with the supernatural and the paranormal. In this groundbreaking book, Lynn Schofield Clark explores the implications of this fascination for contemporary religious and spiritual practices. Relying on stories gleaned from more than 250 in-depth interviews with teens and their families, Clark seeks to discover what today's teens really believe and why. She finds that as adherence to formal religious bodies declines, interest in alternative spiritualities as well as belief in "superstition" grow accordingly. Ironically, she argues, fundamentalist Christian alarmism about the forces of evil has also fed belief in a wider array of supernatural entities. Resisting the claim that the media "brainwash" teens, Clark argues that today's popular stories of demons, hell, and the afterlife actually have their roots in the U.S.'s religious heritage. She considers why some young people are nervous about supernatural stories in the media, while others comfortably and often unselfconsciously blur the boundaries between those stories of the realm beyond that belong to traditional religion and those offered by the entertainment media. At a time of increased religious pluralism and declining participation in formal religious institutions, Clark says, we must completely reexamine what young people mean--and what they may believe--when they identify themselves as "spiritual" or "religious." Offering provocative insights into how the entertainment media shape contemporary religious ideas and practices, From Angels to Aliens paints a surprising--and perhaps alarming--portrait of the spiritual state of America's youth.

Book Short Summary:

Many current and ancient sources suggest that UFOs and extraterrestrial beings have been visiting the earth and interacting with humans for thousands of years. If this is true, monumental implications arise regarding the origin and evolution of humanity and the future of our planet. This book discusses the highly controversial subject of alien contact and abduction, recounting twenty-five cases of close encounter. The cases included have been selected from the files of psychotherapist, Barbara Lamb, who has been working with abductees since 1991. In her work with 560 individuals, more than 1,800 regressions have revealed encounters with what appear to be non-human life forms. Although extraterrestrial contact is difficult to prove scientifically, the events described in this book are accurate in that they have been presented as they were described by the individuals who experienced them. These are normal men and women living average, responsible lives who have been subjected to extremely unusual events. These individuals display such a compelling sincerity and marked emotional response to their strange experiences there can be no doubt they have experienced some kind of extraordinary event. As a reader, you may be curious about the subject, or you may be a confirmed skeptic. You may also be someone who is investigating unusual occurrences in your own life. Whatever the case may be, if with an open mind you will simply consider the possibilities inferred by the cases described herein, you might find yourself on the road to a greater vision of reality.

Book Short Summary:

As both an extra-terrestrial and a terrestrial migrant, the alien provides a critical framework to help us understand the interactions between cultures and to explore the transgressive force of travel over geographical, cultural or linguistic borders. Offering a perspective on the alien that connects to scholarship on immigration and globalization, Alien Imaginations brings together canonical and contemporary works in the literature and cinema of science fiction and transnationalism. By examining the role of the alien through the themes of language, anxiety and identity, the essays in this collection engage with authors such as H.G. Wells, Eleanor Arnason, Philip K. Dick and Yoko Tawada as well as directors such as Neill Blomkamp, James Cameron and Michael Winterbottom. Focusing on works that are European and North American in origin, the readings in this volume explore their critical intent and their potential to undermine many of the central notions of Western hegemonic discourses. Alien Imaginations reflects upon contemporary cultural imaginaries as well as the realities of migration, labor and life, suggesting models of resistance, if not utopian horizons.

Book Short Summary:

For many, Close Encounters of the Third Kind (CE3K) is not so much a movie as a religious experience. On its release in 1977, CE3K virtually redefined the science fiction film, shifting it away from spaceships, laser guns, and bug-eyed monsters into a modified form of science fiction that John Wyndham once called ‘logical fantasy’. What would it be like if extra-terrestrials made contact with people on Earth? How would it feel? Like 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), Steven Spielberg’s primary inspiration, CE3K is concerned with mankind’s evolution towards the stars, towards a state of transcendence. But Spielberg’s vision hinges not so much on cool scientific intellect being the key to our next stage of evolution, as on the necessary development of emotional intelligence. To that end, we must regain our childlike curiosity for what lies beyond the skies, we must recover our capacity to experience wonder. Intensity of emotion is inherent to the film’s meaning, and the aim of this book is to explore this in detail. Along the way it delves into the film’s production history, explores Spielberg’s remarkable cinematic realisation of the film (including a comparison study of the three different release versions), and considers in detail how CE3K fits into the Spielberg oeuvre.

Book Short Summary:

Alien Chic provides a cultural history of the alien since the 1950s, asking ourselves why our attitudes to aliens have shifted from fear to affection, and what this can tell us about how we now see ourselves and others. Neil Badmington explores our relationship with aliens, inscribed in films such as The War of the Worlds, Mars Attacks!, Mission to Mars and Independence Day; and how thinkers such as Descartes, Barthes, Freud, Lyotard and Derrida have conceptualised what it means to be human (and post-human). Alien Chic examines the the concept of posthumanism in an age when the lines between what is human and what is non-human are increasingly blurred by advances in science and technology, for example genetic cloning and engineering, and the development of AI and cyborgs. Questioning whether our current embracing of all things 'alien' - in the form of extraterrestrial gadgets or abduction narratives, for instance - stems from a desire to reaffirm ourselves as 'human', this is an original and thought-provoking contribution to the study of posthumanism.

Book Short Summary:

New Hampshire couple Betty and Barney Hill provided Americans with what is essentially the original alien abduction story. Since their story became public in the early 1960s, many thousands of Americans have likewise come forward with similar stories of traumatic experiences. Sometimes the abductee has little conscious recollection of these events, but through nightmares, dreams, flashbacks and hypnosis they eventually learn more. Sometimes the participants are bewildered. To get a better understanding of the opposing viewpoints of skeptic and believer, the Betty and Barney Hill case is used to examine the wider context of such encounters, their historical origins, media influences and the latest extraterrestrial, psychological, paranormal, conspiracy and sociological theories that surround them.

A Fascinating Firsthand Nuts & Bolts Analysis of the Grays When an alien craft stalled Stewart Bench's truck on a backcountry road, he tried his best to just forget about it. But then they came back and made it personal. In A Cosmic Encounter, for the first time, Stewart tells the incredible true story of being encountered and then abducted by aliens. As an engineer, Stewart uses his technical experience to describe the specifications of the alien craft, their technology, their communications, and their mission. You will discover the details of the alien device implanted in his nose, the telepathic communication displayed by the aliens, and a wealth of information about the layout and operation of their vehicle and equipment. This is a highly detailed, close-up look at how aliens infiltrate our airspace and conduct experiments on humans—without any official acknowledgement—as well as the personal toll these encounters have on the abductees.

Strange crop circles. Giant figures scratched in the desert surface along the coast of Peru. The amazing alignment of the pyramids. Strange lines of clouds in the sky.

Prothero and Tim Callahan explore why such demonstrably false beliefs thrive despite decades of education and scientific debunking. Employing the ground rules of science and the standards of scientific evidence, Prothero and Callahan discuss a wide range of topics including the reliability of eyewitness testimony, psychological research into why people want to believe in aliens and UFOs, and the role conspiratorial thinking plays in UFO culture. They examine a variety of UFO sightings and describe the standards of evidence used to determine whether UFOs are actual alien spacecraft. Finally, they consider our views of aliens and the strong cultural signals that provide the shapes and behaviors of these beings.

Book Short Summary:

This thesis deals with contemporary African American science fiction. It focuses on three texts by Derrick Bell, Octavia Butler, and Walter Mosley and examines the ways in which they convert the dominantly white SF genre. By addressing non-traditional issues such as racism, racial boundaries, and the politics of species, these alien encounter stories demonstrate that it is not the intruders from outer space who are the real threat to U.S. society but their own (white) U.S. Government.

Book Short Summary:

Virgin Mary Apparitions. UFO Sightings. Crop Circles. What do these have in common? Earth-energies expert Richard Leviton is convinced that these three seemingly distinct phenomena are all interconnected. And, he insists, the signs indicate something very real and very important is happening: we're fast approaching the end of the world as we know it--and that might not be such a bad thing. In Signs on the Earth, Leviton combines newspaper and firsthand accounts with his own intuitive research to examine the exploding number of such reports from around the world. He focuses his study by selecting a handful of Marian apparition sites, including Lourdes, Fatima, Medjugorje, and others, as well as UFO hot spots such as California's Topanga Canyon and the Hudson River Valley. For his investigation of the crop circle phenomenon, Leviton takes you Wiltshire, England, an area he calls the crop circle mecca. Encouraging you to think of the Earth as a cosmic bulletin board, Leviton believes that these phenomena are messages from the galaxy and the spiritual worlds offering us an unprecedented opportunity to enter the next level of reality. Signs on the Earth shows that these signs are literally directions to a 3-step process for looking within as well as beyond yourself, and unlocking your vast spiritual potential.

Book Short Summary:

From the author of The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett and As You Wish comes the unforgettable story of the one small town's biggest hoax and the two brothers who started it all. This is the absolutely true account of how Lansburg, Pennsylvania was invaded by aliens and the weeks of chaos that followed. There were sightings of UFOs, close encounters, and even abductions. There were believers, Truth Seekers, and, above all, people who looked to the sky and hoped for more. Only...there were no aliens. Gideon Hofstadt knows what really happened. When one of his science experiments went wrong, he and his older brother blamed the resulting explosion on extraterrestrial activity. And their lie was not only believed by their town—it was embraced. As the brothers go to increasingly greater lengths to keep up the ruse and avoid getting caught, the hoax flourishes. But Gideon's obsession with their tale threatened his whole world. Can he find a way to banish the aliens before Lansburg, and his life, are changed forever? Told in a report format and comprised of interviews, blog posts, text conversations, found documents, and so much more, It Came from the Sky is a hysterical and resonant novel about what it means to be human in the face of the unknown. Also by Chelsea Sedoti: The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett As You Wish Praise for Chelsea Sedoti: "Depending on the reader, this novel offers different levels of intensity, starting with the everyday sort of teen troubles, progressing to difficult family dynamics, and reaching up to the ethical dilemmas wishing can create—all while being easy to read and hard to put down."—VOYA, STARRED Review for As You Wish "Heartbreaking, other times hilarious, but always thought-provoking. An unexpectedly affecting book that will have readers pondering what they would wish for if given the chance."—Booklist for As You Wish "Resonant and memorable."—Publishers Weekly for The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett "Wildly creative."—School Library Journal for The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett

Book Short Summary:

In The Extratempestrial Model, Dr. Michael P. Masters posits that UFOs and "Aliens" are our future human descendants, coming back through time to visit and study their own hominin evolutionary past. As a professor of anthropology, Masters uses an abductive approach to logically infer the best explanation. He examines well-documented abductee experiences in the context of this time travel model, and considers other theories put forth to elucidate this complex and mysterious phenomenon. While no single model can account for all aspects of these encounters, in considering various contact cases across the world and through time, recurrent patterns emerge that may offer insight into what these objects are, who is inside, and from where—or potentially when—they are coming.
