There is a clear conspiracy to deny the existence of UFOs.
The mainstream media has misinformed us for years about UFO studies conducted by highly regarded scientists associated with some of the finest universities in the country. There is significant evidence that the U.S. government has covered up the alien presence through misinformation, distortion, obfuscation, and ridicule. Some prominent, politically connected scientists have engaged in the cover up. And a few professional writers have helped to successfully label any scientists who have been persuaded by the evidence and brave enough to take a stand as unscientific charlatans, fanatics, and kooks.
"Fact, Fiction, and Flying Saucers" examines the wealth of archival documents that clearly demonstrate this cooperative disinformation effort and refute the false claims made by these professional scoffers. Friedman and Marden set the record straight by examining politically motivated misinformation and presenting the compelling evidence that separates fact from fiction. They reveal:
The most compelling UFO evidence, including a variety of large-scale scientific studies.
The current state of UFOlogy and what the future holds.
The media s role in disclosure and denial.
The government scientists whose job it is to deny.
The Air Force, FBI, CIA, and NSA s involvement."

Review:

"Finally, an excellent, in-depth book that gets to the heart of how, and why, the UFO subject has been smeared, ridiculed, and targeted by disinformation agents."

-Nick Redfern, author of Men in Black and Bloodline of the Gods

"I have had the pleasure of working with Kathleen Marden for over 20 years in various roles in MUFON. She is absolutely 100% committed to solving the UFO riddle as well as what the meaning and purpose is of their contact with experiencers. She is a tireless researcher and UFO historian who's work delves deep into the UFO mystery that continues to befuddle us some seventy years later. One thing is certain, and that is when the answer is finally known, Ms. Marden will be at the forefront of researchers who made it happen. Her works are a must read for any researcher seeking the truth behind the UFO phenomenon."

-Jan Harzan, Executive Director of the Mutual UFO Network

"As a former police detective I am always attracted to UFO researchers who deal in actual facts. People who track down the written documents which confirm fact from fiction, people who establish what the real evidence is. Stanton Friedman and Kathleen Marden are two such people and I defy any rational, intelligent person to read their book and not be impressed by the level of detail on view. An excellent book that deals in hard core facts and leaves the fiction to the sceptics!"

---Gary Heseltine, Researcher and editor of UFO Truth Magazine (www.ufotruthmagazine.co.uk)



"Why would the world need "archives" on the subject matter of UFOs, ETs, and the like? Why would it be difficult to gain access to massive amounts of truth? What type of persons would obtain permission to enter these hallowed halls? The answer is Kathleen Marden and Stanton Friedman, two of the top, if not the top, researchers of the truth on these matters. After reading Fact, Fiction, and Flying Saucers, I have no doubt that some groups, whether it be government or big business, have created a genius "fun house" of smoke and mirrors along with cleverly choreographed and well timed diversionary tactics to obfuscate the truth. Also, the many players involved have manipulated the true facts to draw attention and focus away from the obvious. This has caused many perfectly sane, everyday citizens to question what they have witnessed or experienced. Have our world governments done nothing to disclose the truth to those who deserve the answers? Or on the other hand, are they sharing ideas with others in their arena to create what may possibly be the largest cover up in the world? The arm chair debunkers - debunk only what others have researched. Read this fantastic work of truth for yourself where exposure of cover ups is proven to be fact! You will not be disappointed."

-Denise Stoner co-author of The Alien Abduction Files, Lecturer, Researcher

"There is no question in my mind that the critically important subjects Friedman and Marden address in Fact, Fiction and Flying Saucers are more timely now than ever. Genuine critical thinking, rigorous research, and dedicated professional investigation are increasingly rare commodities in this age of conspiracies, reality TV, and hyper-sensationalized mass media and internet. The fact that two of the world's most respected author/investigators have again collaborated in the writing of a new book is welcome news anytime. That they chose to take on the subjects they do here makes it even more so. A welcome addition to the world of UFO literature, and a book with the potential to reach a far larger audience than most 'UFO books' can even dream of.

Peter Robbins, coauthor of the British bestseller Left a East Gate and long time assistant to pioneer UFO abduction researcher Budd Hopkins.

Kathleen Marden and Stanton Friedman represent decades of research into the topic of UFOs and alleged alien abduction. This book gives us fascinating insights into their findings and opinions, and makes us examine the motives of those who seem to specialize in debunking the UFO phenomenon. Marden and Friedman demonstrate, although these professional skeptics profess a commitment to scientific rigor, often their research is quite dubious. Why is that? Armed with experience, facts, and informed speculation, Marden and Friedman are in a unique position to respond to this question, and their answer is deserving of serious consideration."

---Alejandro Rojas, Editor at OpenMinds.tv
