This coming summer might be called the summer of the UFO book. A lot of new ones are just starting to hit the shelves, and the next issue of UFO Magazine will carry a true book bonanza of new ones that will be reviewed. The following titles are a sample: The Day After Roswell--by Lt. Col. Philip Corso. (More on this one in a moment.) Alien Agenda--by Jim Marrs. (Also more on this one.) Fishing Groom Lake--by Larry Wolfe; UFO Danger Zone--by Bob Pratt; A Common Sense Approach to UFOs--by Betty Hill; Alien Impact--by Michael Craft. Recently on several Internet newsgroups, a lot of debate has been generated by several new books that deal with the Roswell case. Such debate will pale into insignificance with the new blockbuster of a book The Day After Roswell, by retired Lt. Col. Philip Corso. Pocket Books Hardcover sent us an advanced copy of The Day After Roswell, which I quickly started. Almost from the first page I felt a sense of amazement and even shock. It had been over 10 years since I felt something similar, the very first time I ever read the now discredited MJ-12 papers released by William Moore. Over the years I have learned my lesson. So why should that excitement be rekindled now? Because of who Philip Corso is: A member of the White House National Security Council under President Eisenhower, a Nike guided-missile commander in Germany during the years 1957-1961, who, working directly under General Arthur Trudeau, headed the Army's Research and development section at the Pentagon. The secret that Corso says he releases is concerned with the Roswell incident.... How Corso was detailed to pump alien artifacts into the industrial pipeline to jump start many areas of today's current technology! Some of the items he links to ET-inspired R&D are night-vision technology, which the Army began using later in Viet Nam, fibre-optic technology which has created a revolution in communications, lasers and particle beam technology for advanced weaponry, silicon computer chips which have revolutionized computer technology. Ok, so far so good. Anyone who lived through the 60's like myself can vouch for the mind-bending technological leaps made by industry. Just look at where computers are today, and it has been just 20 years since the old Altair chip was introduced where someone with some electronic skill could solder together his own primitive computer. But the real bottom line was the race our military was in. No, not the one with the Soviets (although it was with them also)-- no, the one against the aliens! Corso claims that high in the military and government the real fear was of the aliens becoming openly hostile! According to Corso, all those years of covert alien incursions into secure military bases and nuclear weapons storage areas, buzzing aircraft, jet pursuits, and even interference with our and the Soviets' space shots are all proof of a covert hostility. Oh yes, the Russians were worried. There was even a tacit agreement between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. if hostilities broke out. This is some fascinating reading. Is it real? Is it the truth? Well, if on the veracity question I had to choose between Corso and others who have written on this subject over the years, I would be inclined to pick Corso. Alien Agenda by Jim Marrs is out, and I have written a review on Marrs newest book for the next issue of *UFO Magazine. Alien Agenda is a damned good read which really harkens back to the books of Donald Keyhoe in that era I call the "golden age" of research, with the likes of the "old" NICAP organization. Marrs gives you a history lesson with a sense of urgency about what is happening right now. He looks at the field beginning with a recap of startling facts about the moon; the Maury Island (and Fred Crisman) affair up to what is happening in Nevada and our current shuttle program. Marss gives strong attention to lunar anomalies. Not just lights or strange structural appearing things, although he covers that, but for example: did you know that during Apollo, rocks on the lunar surface were recovered that were dated at least 5.3 billion years old? That rock was more than a half billion years older than our own solar system! That ain't all folks, the lunar dust the rock sat in was ITSELF A BILLION YEARS OLDER THAN THE ROCK ITSELF! --Just goes to prove that we don't know what we don't know.... That's it for now. I have some other intriguing stories I am working on, and when I get them completed I will advise you all. A lot of strange things are presently going on, and research is still in flux. You better remember to keep those eyes to the skies and keep checking in back here.
