Rosemary Ellen Guiley, the Executive Editor of FATE magazine, a former columnist for FATE, and a bestselling author of more than 65 books covering paranormal, metaphysical, and ufological subject matter, has compiled in UFOs and the ET Presence, a truly thought-provoking compilation of excellent articles that previously appeared in years past, beginning with Kenneth Arnold's own historic 1947 UFO account in the premier issue of FATE back in the Spring of 1948. This book is a very well-rounded grouping of remarkable features written by many of the leading figures and personalities who helped shape and mold today's ufology, providing a full spectrum of evidences and perspectives.

A full gamut of theories are covered from ET visitors, ultraterrestrials, to “space critters” with contributions from such well-known personalities in the UFO field as John A. Keel, Ray Palmer, Kevin D. Randle, Brad Steiger, James W. Moseley, Timothy Green Beckley, of course Rosemary Ellen Guiley herself, and others, covering many remarkable accounts, details, quotes and a great interview done with Dr. Jacques Vallee by George W. Earley. This volume provides a thoughtful, pretty comprehensive and historic overview of the UFO landscape.

I enjoyed Max B. Miller's feature “The Men Who Ride in Saucers,” that described the early contactee movement and some of it's leading figures, along with Richard W. Heiden's “George Adamski and the Blustery Day,” which takes a critical look at some of this legendary contactee's claims. Timothy Green Beckley's “Long John Nebel: UFO Pitchman,” shares revealing details on Mr. Nebel, an early pioneer on the airwaves of New York's WOR, who covered UFO and paranormal subject matter, did the first interview of George Adamski, all many years before the likes of Art Bell and George Noory came along.

John A. Keel, certainly one of my very favorite authors, has a feature on the MIB and another on Mothman; two areas he had written much about and became best known for. Gray Barker's original article for FATE on the legendary Flatwoods Monster of West Virginia is here also; there's Allan Spraggett's “Kidnapped by a UFO,” covering the well-known Betty and Barney Hill “abduction” case; Scott Corrales, in “An Alien heat: Chronicles of Sex and Saucery,” covers the noted abduction/alien breeding experience described by a Brazilian named Antonio Villas Boas back in 1957, along with other fascinating sexual related encounter cases; Ray Palmer's 1958 article “Things That Fall from UFOs” [Palmer was one of the earliest UFO authors, co-founding FATE back in 1948 with Curtis G. Fuller, and the co-author, along with Kenneth Arnold, of The Coming of the Saucers in 1952]; Brad Steiger's “Are UFOs Alive?” details the remarkable UFO experiences of his friend Fay Clark who believed he had witnessed a living creature rather than a craft, on more than one occasion; John White's “The Critters Who Live in Space” includes a startling story written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle way back in 1913; this to just help give all of you some idea of what awaits you within the pages of this riveting and exciting volume.

There's much more!


Secret History of the Watchers:
Atlantis and the Deep Memory of the Rebel Angels

The author, Timothy Wyllie (1940-2017), described as a graphic artist and writer, reportedly had a powerful near-death experience back in 1973, after which he came to write and talk much about angels, extraterrestrials, dolphins, Lucifer's angelic rebellion, and Atlantis. Wyllie further claimed that he was receiving much information about earth's past and the angelic realm from an angel of Seraphic status named Georgia who, it is alleged, following the angelic rebellion (at which time we and 36 other planets out there became quarantined from the larger multiverse), became a Watcher.

The author of such previous works as The Return of the Rebel Angels and Awakening of the Watchers, Wyllie's works are hailed as highly significant and revealing by his devoted followers. The book is loaded with many controversial claims and, of course, depicts either outrageous fiction or indeed significant real revelations of the past and what's going on now, hidden behind the proverbial scenes. While I am cautious and skeptical of many such revelations and claims, I am always curious and intrigued, and wonder if it is fiction, whose was it? Are we victims of deliberate propaganda delivered by some nonhuman source, as the late John A. Keel often speculated, or was Wyllie delusional, or even yet, did these disclosures ring true?

Objectively sifting through the evidence is always the great challenge ahead for each of us. It's an especially challenging task when the direct evidence itself can not yet be proven in a scientific way of validation. Nonetheless, we wonder, listen, and continue to read in the hopes that we'll come across a special piece, or pieces, of information that may be the key that will unlock great revelations and interconnect with other independent facts out there.

VV Reign of the Anunnaki:
The Alien Manipulation of Our Spiritual Destiny

Like many other ancient alien theorists before him, this author connects the ancient Mesopotamian Anunnaki with an extraterrestrial race who long ago visited our earth and performed genetic engineering that came to create us modern humans who today still inhabit this planet.

However, Sigdell throws in some additional aspects, stating that while the Anunnaki left the earth there remains an invisible surveillance over their creation (us) through multidimensional beings known as the “Watchers,” who maintain to this day ongoing control and manipulation in our human affairs through secret societies, religion, and politics. The author delves deeply into Biblical, Gnostic, Buddhist, Hindu, and Mesopotamian history, beliefs, and mythologies, revealing what he believes to be the true Creator as opposed to deceiving fake gods like Yaldabaoth (which he reveals was the Gnostic name for Yahweh) and the Mesopotamian god Enlil. Sigdell reveals the true Creator was known by the ancient Canaanites as 'El 'Elyon.

The author even describes how after long wandering through the desert of Sinai and finding the promised land of Canaan occupied, that Yahweh ordered the extermination of everyone, including children, women, and old people. He speculates that this was done by Yahweh because that culture had true knowledge of the real Yahweh and so this was going to be a problem.

The Gnostic texts uncovered in 1945 at Nag Hammadi, Egypt revealed much information of the early Gnostic Christians that had been destroyed or lost. For Sigdell, this finding is a major revelation and allows us to peer into spiritual secrets long hidden from humankind.
