The book includes the claims of the most famous of the Contactees, including George Adamski, who asserted that in 1952 he met human-like aliens from Venus in the deserts of California and George Van Tassel, an aircraft mechanic who asserted that he too had face-to-face encounters with extraterrestrials from our own solar-system. Chapters on the other, major Contactees of the 1950s and 1960s follow, including Daniel Fry, an employee of the White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, who claimed to have had repeated encounters with human-looking aliens who took him for flights; Truman Bethurum, who is alleged to have become far more than friendly with the female Space Captain Aura Rhanes, ; George Hunt Williamson, who maintained that he, too, soon became the target of the Space-Brothers' activities; the elderly Maier sisters, whose mid-1950s claims of being contacted by the Space-Brothers led to secret visits from agents of the CIA; George King, who founded the now-famous Aetherius Society and who went from cab-driver to voice of the Space-Brothers practically overnight; and Sir Peter Horsley, a leading figure in the British military, who said he had face-to-face encounters with a human-looking alien. Also investigated in the book are a detailed look at the FBI's secret surveillance files on most of the major Contactees and an examination of several of the intriguing notions that have surrounded Alien visitation cases over the years, such as Government mind-control experiments, secret propaganda plans, whether the contactees can be dismissed as 'hoaxers' and whether the UFO mystery may be the last remnants of an ancient, Earth-based society that move among us masquerading as Aliens.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. We are not aloneand Nick Redfern can prove it. Contactees contains the fascinating stories of the select group of people chosen by visitors to Earth to spread their message. Are aliens really among us? don't be too quick to dismiss their claims. Truman Bethurum was divorced by his wife because she believed he was having close encounters of a very personal kind with a beautiful extraterrestrial "space captain" named Aura Rhanes? Is he nuts? Prescient? An omen? A band of eerily human-looking, blond-haired aliens--later known as the Space-Brothers--informed other contactees that they were concerned by our warlike ways and wished us to live in peace with one another. Acting on the advice of the Space-Brothers, contactees such as George Van Tassel and George Adamski went out and spread the extraterrestrial word to anyone and everyone who would listen. And many did, including U.S. government agencies. More than half a century later, the contactees are still amongst us, still telling their tales of personal alien encounters, and still maintaining their cult-like status in the world of UFOlogy. Nick Redfern's Contactees relates their controversial, illuminating, bizarre, and thought-provoking stories in all their appropriately out-of-this-world glory. "A revealing look at alien contact." -Jim Marrs, author of Alien Agenda We are not alone.and Nick Redfern can prove it. Contactees contains the fascinating stories of the select group of people chosen by visitors to Earth to spread their message. This book relates their thought-provoking, lluminating, controversial, and sometimes bizarre stories in all their appropriately out-of-this-world glory. Are aliens really among us?
