Strange Secrets: Real Government Files on the Unknown

Front Cover
Simon and Schuster, May 20, 2003 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 336 pages
For as long as extraterrestrial and paranormal phenomena have been investigated, the official government response to any events deemed "otherworldly" or unexplainable has been well documented: DENIAL. Not because they aren't interested in UFOs, monsters, and psychic abilities -- but because they have their own secret agendas for using this knowledge.
In this thoroughly researched compendium of conspiracies and cover-ups, the remarkable findings that have been documented (and supposedly debunked) by the governments of the United States, Great Britain, and the former Soviet Union are finally revealed, including
  • Attempts by the U.S. Air Force to build a fleet of nuclear-powered flying saucers...
  • The British military's files on the Loch Ness monster and other mysterious beasts...
  • The Cold War race between the CIA and the KGB to create the perfect psychic spy/assassin...
  • The real story behind the enigmatic "Men in Black," who terrify UFO witnesses into silence...

For anyone who wants to know the truth -- or the truth behind the truth -- Strange Secrets is the ultimate resource to understanding exactly what the government doesn't want us to know -- and why they want to keep us in the dark.

I find it interesting that Timothy Good, Nick Redfern, Andy Roberts, Bruce Rux and several others have written books that include references to my work as a Police Officer in Fyffe, Alabama and my documentary film "UFOs: A Need To Know". I guess I should feel honored, but most of these suthors have never contacted me via email, phone nor snail mail to check the facts. I've never met any of them in person nor been interviewed by them. Investigative Journalism this is not.
