Inhaltsangabe: A historical overview of alien encounters, from Archbishop Agobard of Lyons’s ninth-century encounter with the occupants of a “cloudship” through a January 2000 UFO sighting in Illinois. Includes both the skeptics’ and the true believers’ points of view.
From School Library Journal: Gr 6-10-A wealth of UFO sighting reports from ancient Egypt to China in 2001 gives this work an uncommon breadth and depth of coverage. As is typical, the bulk of the reported alien encounters comes from the United States, but a generous sampling comes from many different countries, including Israel, Switzerland, New Guinea, France, and Cuba. Chapters are arranged in a rough chronological order. Many charts, sidebars, pencil sketches, and a few photographs add visual interest and supplemental information in the narrative: comparisons between typical alien encounters and folklore, brief descriptions of additional sightings, background information on assorted "alien experts," and definitions of terms used in ufology, etc. A "man in black" icon in the margin indicates especially significant or well-documented incidents. Contact information for several UFO organizations and descriptions of their areas of activity are provided after a section on how to observe and record a UFO encounter. The reading list, divided by general subject area, is small but highly selective and well annotated. The tone of this book is more neutral than Alan Baker's The Encyclopedia of Alien Encounters (Facts On File, 2000). Skeptics' ideas and UFO believers' opinions are given fair and balanced consideration. On the whole, this is a fine, up-to-date summary of the many aspects of a compelling subject.
