Keep Out! Reviewed

Over at The UFO Iconoclasts blog, Rich Reynolds reviews my new Keep Out! book, which can be found at this link.

The Truth Behind UFOs: TV Today

Why, you may ask, have I included in this post interior and exterior shots of an old building, in some desolate desert locale?

Well, I'll tell you why!

This is the very building into which none other than rancher Mac Brazel hauled - for safe-keeping - a bunch of anomalous debris found on the Foster Ranch, New Mexico in the summer of 1947.

Yep, that's right: Roswell.

I had the opportunity to spend some time at the crash-site itself in January of this year (nope, I didn't find anything weird unfortunately!), when I was doing some filming with the National Geographic Channel for a new show called The Truth Behind UFOs, which airs this afternoon, at 5PM Central.

And I was very pleased when I was invited to check-out this seldom-seen construction that played such an integral role in Roswell - regardless of what did or did not happen on that fateful day.

And,correct me if you think I'm wrong, but if aliens really did crash on the Foster Ranch, isn't it maybe time for permission to be sought to tear down the building and do a full search of its foundations and immediate surroundings?

You know: just in case...

Exposed, Uncovered, and Declassified

Just published is a new title from New Page Books: Exposed, Uncovered, and Declassified: Lost Civilizations & Secrets of the Past.

Edited by Michael Pye and Kirsten Dalley, it's the third in the Exposed, Uncovered, and Declassified series, and includes from me a paper on government interest in ancient mysteries, including (a) the saga of Noah's Ark, (b) Contactee George Van Tassel's theories that alien visitation provoked many of the accounts recorded in the Bible, and (c) claims that the Pyramids of Egypt were constructed via the means of levitation.

And here's the blurb from New Page Books outlining the books' contents:

Original Essays by Erich von Daniken, Philip Coppens, Frank Joseph, Nick Redfern, Thomas G. Brophy, Steven Sora, Marie D. Jones & Larry Flaxman, Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, Scott Alan Roberts, Freddy Silva, Micah Hanks, Patrick C. Chouinard, Adrian Gilbert, William Bramley, and Paul Von Ward.

"Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man’s desire to understand."—Neil Armstrong.

Were Atlantis and Lemuria factual places?

Who built the pyramids and for what purpose?

How advanced was the technology of ancient cultures?

All this and more is covered in Exposed, Uncovered, and Declassified: Lost Civilizations & Secrets of the Past—the latest in the all-original series that is already sparking lively debate.

Erich von Däniken, best-selling author of Chariots of the Gods, examines the Egyptian pyramids, studying their astronomical implications and what message they were meant to convey. Thomas G. Brophy, PhD, focuses on the mysterious Nabta Playa site in southern Egypt and its connection to African history.

Intrepid explorer of ancient America Frank Joseph covers archeological scandals and attempts to suppress evidence, including the Smithsonian’s "loss" of Maya skulls discovered in the Aleutian Islands. Researcher Steven Sora, author of The Lost Colony, delves into evidence that Scotland’s Picts originated in North America and were connected to the ancient Micmac tribe of the Americas.

Philip Coppens of the History Channel’s Ancient Aliens explores an ancient Celtic network of roads that may be connected to a 4,000-year-old land-based reproduction of Atlantis. Scholar and mystery explorer Oberon Zell-Ravenheart brings together the Garden of Eden, the Tree of Life, the great deluge, and the sinking of Lemuria.

Marie D. Jones & Larry Flaxman (11:11: The Time Prompt Phenomenon) explore what ancient civilizations knew about sound and resonance, and how they may have used them to build megaliths and pyramids, and achieve altered states. Journalist Nick Redfern reveals the U.S. government’s abiding interest in our ancient past, religious mysteries, and enigmatic artifacts.

Evidence of these ancient mysteries is everywhere—if you know what to look for. Whether you’re a believer, a skeptic, or somewhere in between, Exposed, Uncovered, and Declassified: Lost Civilizations & Secrets of the Past is sure to entertain and educate.

Michael Pye has been an acquisitions editor for New Page Books since 2003 acquiring hundreds of books in that time. He developed a healthy appetite for the unexplained by watching far too many episodes of In Search Of hosted by Leonard Nimoy after school instead of doing his homework, which turned him into a reader of books on the strange and unexplained. He earned a BA in English from Southern Connecticut State University.

Kirsten Dalley has functioned in various editorial capacities at New Page Books since 2004. She is coauthor of The Nightmare Encyclopedia, along with Jeff Belanger. She graduated from Columbia University with a BA in comparative literature, which has proven to be of use in both her career and her leisure pursuits (reading fiction and riding sportbikes).

Blogging Keep Out!

Over at New Page Books' blog, you can find a new post from me on my latest book (Keep Out!), a post that covers such varied issues as Bigfoot, the 2012 controversies, the Chupacabra, and a multitude of secret underground realms. Here's the link!

Keep Out! Available Now...

Area 51, Hangar 18, the Montauk facility, and the Dulce Base.

These are just a few of the select, highly classified installations about which governments prefer that we, the general public, remain steadfastly ignorant.

And those same governments have excellent reasons for wishing us to remain in the dark. It is at these secret facilities that for decades clandestine research has reportedly been undertaken into crashed UFOs, deceased alien entities, bizarre creatures and unknown animals, lethal viruses, biological warfare, mind-control experimentation, and much, much more.

Whether situated deep under the oceans, far below the ground, or within the heart of remote, fortified desert locales, these and many other super-secret places are guarded with a near-paranoid zeal by those in power who wish to keep their secrets buried and locked far away from prying eyes.

And you can find all the information in my new book, Keep Out!, published right now by New Page Books.
