Beschreibung des Verlags
New Saucerian Press proudly presents A Project Blue Book for the Ages: John Keel’s Book of Ancient Astronauts and Aliens - one of the last books commissioned by the iconic ufologist, publisher, and best-selling author Gray Barker, whose writing influenced the plot lines of shows like Star Trek, Futurama, The X-Files, Twin Peaks, The Outer Limits, The Jetsons, Lost in Space, and The Twilight Zone.
Shuttling between his Manhattan publishing office and his secluded cabin deep in the hills of his home state of West Virginia, the prolific Barker single-handedly kept public interest focused on UFOs during it leanest years and introduced many themes still discussed and investigated by today’s paranormal and conspiracy researchers: the Roswell UFO crash, Men in Black, ancient aliens, Nazi UFOs, the Philadelphia Experiment, the Flatwoods Monster, Mothman, MJ-12, secret underground bases, ETs, and the Maury Island Incident. Although his legacy has been ruthlessly attacked by the arch-skeptics of CSICOP (who have wrongly painted him as a hoaxer), more and more people are now giving Barker the credit and recognition he deserves, as a pioneer and public advocate of scientific ufology.
A Project Blue Book for the Ages and its sister books, John Keel's Book of UFOs, I Hear the Voices of Depraved Spies and Moguls in My Head, The Devil Is in the Details, Forget About Flying Saucers, Visitors from the Void, Flying Saucer Fire and Fury, Serpents of Fire, Saucers of Fear, Saucers of Fire, Bigfoot Shootout, and Time-Traveling Through Swamp Gas, were assembled by Barker shortly before his death, using material culled from deteriorating copies of his notoriously speculative newsletters and gossipy syndicated column - for years the most widely read national column on UFOs, Forteana, and “weird science”.
In true newsletter style, these works, which were guest-curated by famed Fortean investigator John A. Keel, shed urgent, much-needed light on a wide variety of ufological riddles, featuring Saucerian correspondents such as Erich Von Daniken, Ivan T. Sanderson, Otto Binder, J.J. Hurtak, Josef F. Blumrich, William L. Moore, Jerome Greenfield, Don Wilson, Bryce Bond, Craig and Eric Umland, James Oberg, and B. Ann Slate.
