Publisher Description

New Saucerian Press is to pleased to present "The Great Phonograph in the Sky," a collection of articles by, and interviews with, John A. Keel, the man many consider to have been not only the premiere investigator of all things unusual and “Fortean,” but who was also our own, twentieth-century “Mark Twain.” 

Many of the articles in this anthology and its companion volumes, "Flying Saucer to the Center of Your Mind," "The Outer Limits of the Twilight Zone," "Searching For the String," "The Passionate Percipient: Illusions I Have Known And Loved," and "The Perspicacious Percipient: How to Investigate UFOs and Other Insane Urges" were revolutionary, and explored ideas popularized in Keel’s classic books. Written in Keel’s engaging trademark style, they are sure to delight fans with their fresh, unparalleled insights into the nature of reality. 

In these pages, John Keel displays the keen observational skills and investigative tenacity that made him the "enfant terrible" of ufology for decades. In this no-holds-barred analysis – much of it written decades ago – Keel shreds many of the sacred-cow beliefs still held in ufological and “cryptozoological” circles today, and presents theories so radical that they are only now becoming accepted: the “4-D” or “interdimensional” thesis; the “breakaway civilization” theory; the possible role of “ancient aliens” in human history; the synthetic and/or hallucinatory nature of many “alien abduction” and “Men in Black” encounters; the role of spy agencies in paranormal research; and the alarming connection between UFOs, animal mutilations, and attacks on unsuspecting humans. 

"The Great Phonograph in the Sky" covers a wide variety of topics, such as Eastern magic, statistical problems in UFO research, creature sightings, earth mysteries, psychological warfare, skyquakes, poltergeists, radio anomalies, and phantom ships, planes, submarines, and humans. This special edition features several interviews with Keel which, along with his writings, showcase his wit, affable charm, and impassioned intellectual capabilities.
