Books to Read

This page features books that I consider absolutely essential to read for the serious and curious researcher into paranormal and spiritual topics. They are all lumped together alphabetical by author. I do try to provide brief descriptions. This list will be added to--so it is never to be considered complete.

Ardy Sixkiller Clarke

Professor Emeritus from the University of Montana, trained in the Social Sciences, clinical Psychology and American Indian activism, Dr. Clarke builds a unique bridge between her Western education and Native heritage through her extraordinary true, first hand collections of American Indian encounters with UFOs, aliens and other unworldly beings. She lets her subjects share their own experiences and all she does is provide a little context.

John Keel

Not enough can be said about John Keel. Almost anything he wrote is of value but I consider these to be the most innovative and thoughtful. Andy Colvin at New Saucerian Press has made virtually all that can be had of Keel available, including several volumes of essays, articles and interviews. Check him out at Saucerian Productions (see on link page) or Amazon.

Jacques Vallee

Jacques Vallee is one of the most respected scientists who has attempted to apply rigorous research standards to the investigation of UFOs. Although he is largely retired from the field, his work has provided a standard against to measure many others--and the questions that he has asked are still pertinent.
