Faces of the Visitors: An Illustrated Reference to Alien Contact

Front Cover
Fireside, 1997 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 309 pages

In every corner of the world, over the past century, people have been reporting encounters with a huge array of alien beings -- some tall and human-looking, some hairy and monstrous, some reptilian-looking, and even some that defy conventional description. In Faces of the Visitors,UFO expert Kevin Randle and documentary producer and artist Russ Estes have teamed up to produce an essential reference guide to the most important close encounters, alien contactee cases, abductions, and reported photos of aliens. Each of the over fifty entries is based on actual eyewitness accounts and includes:

  • A detailed drawing of each visitor based on drawings made by (or according to descriptions given by) the people who saw it with their own eyes
  • A stunning description of each alien and the name of its home world, if known
  • A unique reliability rating, on a scale from 0 to 10
  • A gripping you-were-there narration of the encounter, along with meticulous documentation of source material

Faces of the Visitors also offers a complete chronological database on the often overlooked but extremely important Euro-South American visitation wave of 1954 and the North American wave of 1973, as well as a comprehensive bibliography of important books, magazine articles, and journals. It is a fascinating reference for anyone curious about alien visitation and an unequaled source for those who want to learn more about their own experiences.
