Our Haunted Planet by John A. Keel
And journalist John Keel, arriving to investigate the freakish events, soon finds himself an integral part of an eerie and unfathomable mystery. I'm a year-old retired lawyer and former Assistant Attorney General with an unusual story to tell. Every word of it is true. It happened in a state park known as Devil's Den.
For fear of losing my job and damaging my reputation in the legal community, I never spoke about the incident. If it hadn't happened to me, I'd be skeptical too. A friend and I planned a two-night camping trip to explore the wilderness. We drove deep into the forest until we came to a high plateau. There on the horizon sat a perfect triangle of three very bright stars This book is a companion to the groundbreaking ideas that began with The Messengers.
It is a further exploration into the connection, both symbolic and literal, between owls and UFOs. There is a strangeness to these accounts that defies any simple explanation. Each chapter tells a deeply personal story where these mysterious experiences are explored in depth. The ancient mythology of the owl is repeating itself within the modern UFO report. What plays out is a journey of transformation, with an owl at the heart of each story. During and , when he was subject to nonstop surveillance and harassment from both human and supernatural spooks, intrepid Fortean investigator John A.
Keel made extensive field notes concerning the phenomena he was confronting in West Virginia and New York: UFOs, Men in Black, creature entities, ultraterrestrials, and odd coincidences and synchronicities. The result was a series of concise, thematically related reports, many of which were incorporated into magazine articles for Saga , Fate , and Flying Saucer Review.
Classified space programs have been an integral part of a complex jigsaw puzzle concerning UFOs, extraterrestrial life, ancient civilizations and advanced aerospace technologies, which have long defied any coherent understanding. Now finally, we have something to put all the pieces together with the disclosures of secret space program whistleblower, Corey Goode.
The world is not what we think it is. The individuals whose experiences you are about to hear know that only too well, since nothing in their lives had prepared them for their encounters with things that are not supposed to happen - but did! Events like these remain hidden because those they happen to are afraid to speak out of a natural reluctance to have their sincerity or sanity questioned.
Societies define their own realities and those who challenge them do so at their own peril. The moral seems to be that where these kinds of events are concerned, ignorance is the best policy. Whitley Strieber and Jeffrey J. Kripal team up on this unprecedented and intellectually vibrant new framing of inexplicable events and experiences. Rather than merely document the anomalous, these authors - one the man who popularized alien abduction and the other a renowned scholar - deliver a fast-paced and exhilarating study of why the supernatural is neither fantasy nor fiction but a vital and authentic aspect of life.
According to numerous abductees, after being kidnapped by aliens, they are kidnapped again These follow-up events are the work of a powerful group hidden deep within the military and the intelligence community. It is the secret agenda of this highly classified organization to figure out what the so-called Grays are really up to.
The best way for the government to get the answers is to interrogate those who have come face-to-face with the UFO phenomenon: the abductees.
Bigfoot, the chupacabra, and thunderbirds aren't just figments of our overactive imaginations - according to thousands of eyewitnesses, they exist, in every corner of the United States. Throughout America's history, shocked onlookers have seen unbelievable creatures of every stripe - from sea serpents to apelike beings, giant bats to monkeymen - in every region. In , as a result of a secret agreement reached between the Eisenhower Administration and a German breakaway group in Antarctica, a transnational corporate space program began to emerge.
The secret infusion of personnel and resources from US military contractors into Antarctica allowed this transnational corporate program to steadily grow into a major space power, which would eventually surpass and eclipse the secret space programs run by the US Navy, Air Force, and the classified space programs of other nations. The far Southwest corner of Pennsylvania looks on the surface to be a pleasant rolling, river-cut landscape carpeted with vegetation and trees. But underneath is a bloody history and a supernatural reality brimming with ghosts, aliens, unknown creatures - and things that can change a person's life forever.
More than half of American adults and more than 75 percent of young Americans believe in intelligent extraterrestrial life. This level of belief rivals that of belief in God. American Cosmic examines the mechanisms at work behind the thriving belief system in extraterrestrial life, a system that is changing and even supplanting traditional religions. Since the beginning of recorded time, mankind has been plagued by unknown forces and beings, baffled by archaeological phenomena, and haunted by the inexplicable accuracy - and inaccuracy - of prophecies and "visions.
Keel brings into chilling focus strange truths about the Earth and its mysterious inhabitants. Could an unseen, prehuman race have taken careful measures to remain hidden from surface dwellers? Are they still watching us from their secret hiding places, manipulating and misleading us, using us for their own entertainment, and controlling our actions?
Our Haunted Planet is an entertaining survey of anomalous "Fortean" events such as UFOs, enigmatic stone monuments, Men in Black, missing ships and aircraft, phantom radio broadcasts, teleportation, missing time, black magick, tulpas, angels, demigods, tricksters, and much more. Unlike most ufologists, who settle on a literal interpretation of such phenomena, Keel is broad-minded and courageous enough to include all possibilities - including the impact of occultists and spies on the fields of ufology, conspiracy, and cryptozoology. Modern "spooks" appear alongside the gods of the ancients, creating a mind-expanding pastiche that may either heal your soul, send you to the loony bin, or just keep you up all night as you ponder the meaning of its forbidden secrets.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? I have been a John Keel fan since watching the Mothman Prophecies movie shortly after it was released in I found the movie to be extremely compelling, and when I read the book both written format and audio , I became more and more intrigued by Keel's perspective of the unknown.
Having downloaded most of his recently released works--largely the 3 Andy Colvin edited collective works, "Flying Saucer.. After listening to this book, I was astonished at the detail and conjecture that Keel lay out for his audience, and I consider this to be his best book, after, of course, MP. Who was your favorite character and why? How does this one compare?
He has an almost other-worldly ability to elicit myriad emotions, conjuring up various images and character development with a technique that few can match. As usual, Michael's performance in this book it at the top of the list. Did you have an extreme reaction to this book?
Did it make you laugh or cry? No, but I found the combination of Keel's material and Hacker's narration to be an excellent combination--as I expected. Any additional comments?

Michael Hacker is a great narrator. Written in , John Keel's examination of many of Earth's mysteries holds up pretty well. It's hard to know how far science might have come in the subsequent five decades in solving a few of them monolithic structures like Stonehenge -- still so mysterious? I'm not sure I can put much stock in his "ultra-human" theory, but he makes a good case that it explains more mysteries than UFOlogy and the like.
Narrator Michael Hacker kept me engaged with the material at all times; with the emotion one typically associates with fiction, but applied to facts and trains of thought that need attention if the listener is going to get the author's points. Well done! I had the paper back edition before. It was good then. But even better when narrated to you.
There were just like a chapter or two that i found a bit dragging, so had to skip them. But overall it's very interesting. Especially for the open minded. The narrator was good. I listened to this audiobook while on a roadtrip. The material was very good and the book was very entertaining. I have read about alot of the material contained in the book, but I learned some new things as well! The descriptions of the various phenomena were really vivid and I love Keel's often humorous writing style.
