Raymond E. Fowler is one of the most prolific and respected investigator/authors in all Ufology. He is widely known for his work with Betty Andreasson Luca, a New England housewife who experienced multiple encounters with grey aliens, both in her home and onboard alien spacecraft. His reports on the UFO phenomenon have been entered into the Congressional Record as part of a congressional inquiry into the subject. In the course of his many years as a UFO investigator, Fowler would discover his own hidden personal history as an abductee and experiencer.
So it goes without saying that Fowler’s worldview would get a bit shaken up over the years. But in spite of the strange UFO-related events he would both research and experience over his lifetime, Fowler, in all things, remains an earthbound human being. However, one must also take into account the fact that Fowler suffered a traumatic brain injury as a child yet would come to have an IQ of 140.
Thus the title of his latest book, “Buster: Growing Up With HI IQ TBI.” “Buster” was Fowler’s boyhood nickname. He suffered the traumatic brain injury (TBI) as a very young child when his mother let him play in a new baby walker in the backyard while she read a book in the sunshine.
“Suddenly she glanced up,” Fowler writes, “to see me heading for cement stairs leading to a grassy path below the yard. Terrified, she screamed for me to stop and ran to stop me, but it was too late. I rode the walker down the stairs, tipping me and it over and over, hitting my head on the cement stairs.”
Fowler was rushed to the hospital with his head split open and bleeding profusely. The doctor stopped the bleeding and stitched up the wound, after which Fowler was hospitalized for several days. His parents were told that he had suffered a traumatic brain injury and would never be the same again.
“In essence,” Fowler writes, “they would be responsible for bringing up a child with incurable mental and emotional problems.”
Fowler’s mother left the meeting with his doctors in a state of shock, and his father could not console her. She felt guilt and confusion and extreme self-recrimination, emotions she could not cope with, finally deciding to pack her things and flee her family. It was the only solution she could see at the time. Fowler would daily ask where his mother had gone and was told she would return soon. Though he cannot remember how long his mother was absent from their home, she did return, was forgiven by Fowler’s father and rejoined the family.
Fowler writes that he was told about his having an accident while playing in his walker but not that he had had such a debilitating injury to his brain. Nor did he connect the accident to his personality.
He grew up a loner and antisocial, but he believed those thoughts and feelings were basically normal. However, when he reached high school, he began to feel he was different from his peers in obvious ways and longed to fit in with the other kids. To paraphrase Nobel Prize winning songwriter Bob Dylan, “they mistook his shyness for aloofness, his silence for snobbery.” Or they would sometimes dismiss him as simply “slow.”
At that point, he did not attribute his “otherness” to his childhood accident. It wasn’t until many years later that his father told young Fowler about the severity of his injury, but prefaced his remarks by loudly declaring “You proved them wrong!” in reference to the doctors’ prognosis of his condition.
As a child, Fowler seemed to be perpetually at war with bullies at school and in his neighborhood. Fistfights and rock-throwing battles were pretty much a regular occurrence. Fowler would also experiment with fireworks using his own homemade gun powder and nearly set his house on fire. He built crystal radio sets with his father’s help and hoped to have a career as a radio technician.
In high school, he was approached by a few females who hoped to go further than he felt comfortable in doing given the strong religious beliefs he had had beginning in childhood. After graduating in 1952, he joined the Air Force and was again confronted by women seeking what he felt was the wrong kind of relationship. Meanwhile, his fellow airmen proved to be what the Bible calls “drunkards” and “whoremongers” who asked Fowler to join them in a night of debauchery. He declined and went to church that night instead.
Fowler met his future wife Margaret while stationed in England. She was intelligent and spiritual, the kind of woman he could be with in good conscience. They married in England and returned to the U.S. after Fowler left the service. There was some precognitive dreaming associated with the trip back to America, but perhaps it is best to leave that for the readers of the book to discover. Fowler and his wife are parents, grandparents and great-grandparents, raising a big family.
In the early 1960s Fowler began working for GTE Sylvania and would rise up the ranks there until his retirement in 1986. His knowledge of the components of the electrical system of the Minuteman II/III ICBM resulted in his being chosen to be the in-house member of the Minuteman Production Board as well as being the Task Manager of Program Planning and Scheduling for Minuteman and other programs. This was a far cry from what one would expect from someone who had suffered a traumatic brain injury. He did indeed prove his doctors wrong, having a highly successful career at GTE Sylvania and throughout his life as he excelled in a variety of endeavors.
It was also in the early 60s that Fowler’s interest in UFOs developed and he interviewed many a witness to local sightings and landings near his home in Danvers, Massachusetts. He started corresponding with Dr. J. Allen Hynek, an astronomer who investigated UFO sightings for the Air Force. Hynek would later sing Fowler’s praises, calling him a respected and thorough researcher of UFO events in New England. Fowler came to be a high-ranking member on the board of the international organization The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).
In addition, Fowler would come to write more than a dozen books on UFOs, alien abduction, anomalies in time and synchronicity. His impressive catalog of work continues to be a classic bedrock of crucial research that has stood the test of time and is ranked among the best that UFO literature has to offer.
Included with Fowler’s gut-wrenchingly honest memoirs, with absolutely no warts concealed, is an overview of the relationship between traumatic brain injury and high-level intelligence written by medical specialists in the field.
Fowler is not alone in that regard. There are numerous cases of the pairing of brain injury with near genius IQ and the phenomenon will surely be the subject of future study by brain specialists and other medical researchers.
“Buster: Growing Up With HI IQ TBI” is not another story of adventures in alien contact, but it is an adventure story nonetheless, as a young boy navigates through an often frightening world he neither understands or can be counted on to understand him. The book has undercurrents of earthbound “high strangeness” that rival even the most bizarre accounts of the paranormal.
Raymond Fowler has been a UFO investigator since the 1960s, and as a researcher dedicated to the subject he has few equals. When he first began his field research, which consisted of following up on sightings reports that came his way near his New England home and frequently traveling to the actual locations where flying saucers had been seen, Fowler and his peers in Ufology were in hot pursuit of what they believed to be physical spacecraft visiting Earth from somewhere out in the universe that was completely unknown.
Investigators in those early years were mainly cataloging lights in the sky and metallic airborne devices that were solid enough to show up on radar but nevertheless exhibited flight maneuvers that manmade aircraft were not capable of. The spacecraft would sometimes leave traces behind, such as indentations made by landing gear or strange circular burn marks on the grass where a UFO was seen to have touched down.
At the time, in terms of hard science, any reports of alien occupants of the flying saucers were not given much credence, especially by researchers who took the subject seriously. Speaking and interacting with UFO occupants was a concept embraced by the contactees of the 1950s, who told of golden-haired space angels who took their chosen humans on trips to Venus – a kind of “lunatic fringe” belief. No serious researcher wanted to be tarred by the same brush as the contactees, and Raymond Fowler shared that disdain himself at first.
In his latest book, called “UFOs: The Ultimate Abduction,” Fowler gives a fascinating account of his early days on the trail of physical UFOs, providing a picture of that moment in history in which the government, the military, the scientific community and the public in general grappled with the mystery of just what was being seen so frequently in our skies.
At the time, the mid-1960s, Fowler was among those advocating for Congress to open an official inquiry into the subject and even had some of his research entered into the Congressional Record. Fowler also tells the story of Project Blue Book, an agency within the Air Force tasked with collecting and compiling UFO reports from civilians that was discontinued in 1969 based on the recommendation of the less-than-trustworthy Condon Report, a government-contracted study of the subject conducted by academics at the University of Colorado.
The first several chapters of “UFOs: The Ultimate Abduction” are an absorbing account of those earlier years, but the real fascination the book holds is in Fowler’s telling of the story of how the nuts-and-bolts evidence he examined initially eventually led him to embrace a much different view of the UFO phenomenon. He was following the data, not just the whimsy of idle speculation.
Fowler’s understanding changed over time as he began to put together a puzzle, an alien jigsaw that combined some of the precognitive and out-of-body experiences of his father as well as moments from Fowler’s own youth.
At two or three years of age, he encountered a light that bathed him in love. Other encounters with loving entities of light would follow, but Fowler characterized those moments as “religious” experiences that were not UFO-related. In fact, if pressed to do so at the time, Fowler would have condemned “spiritual” or “supernatural” UFO encounters as “demonic” and totally removed from the loving purity of what he had experienced.
Much of Fowler’s spiritual journey had its origins in his investigation of Betty Andreasson, a devoutly Christian New England housewife and mother who claimed grey aliens entered her home in 1967 and abducted both her and her daughter. Fowler was present when Betty recalled her experiences under regressive hypnosis and he would eventually write five books on Betty and her family. The titles may already be familiar to those reading this article: “The Andreasson Affair,” “The Andreasson Affair Phase Two,” “The Watchers,” “The Watchers II,” and “The Andreasson Legacy.”
In a recent exchange of emails, Fowler clarified his views for me on Betty and what had happened to her.
“I believe that Betty’s extraordinarily strong fundamentalist views,’ he told me, “influenced her testimony on several occasions. In ‘The Andreasson Affair’ series of experiences by Betty, we must remember that they are told by a very religious person and strongly influenced by her belief system as she sought to make sense of what she was experiencing. I do not see any definitive connection between Christianity and the UFO phenomenon. People tend to see and interpret such experiences through the spectacles of what they want to believe or disbelieve.
“I might add that the entities associated with Betty,” Fowler continued, “seem to have encouraged her in her faith and may even have gone along with it in some sense so she would be more pliable in her relations with them and also not to upset her. For myself, I would reject the terms ‘supernatural’ or ‘spiritual,’ because every bit of the UFO phenomenon is natural and only appears to be supernatural because most of it is beyond our understanding.”
Taken together, the Andreasson books relate the alien-religious odyssey of not only Betty and her family but also Fowler’s realization of his own place in the cosmic drama that is the UFO mystery. His transition from Christian fundamentalism to a more open – perhaps an even more loving – view of reality also incorporates essential truths learned from the study of Near Death Experiences, including an examination of the research of NDEs conducted by Dr. Kenneth Ring that makes a case for the similarity between NDEs and alien abduction experiences. There are likewise connections between alien abduction, NDEs and the aforementioned OBEs, or Out-of-Body Experiences.
Those three areas of study also dovetail nicely with what we have learned from the study of Past Live Experiences, or accounts, often also obtained from people under regressive hypnosis, of the historical details of former lives that serve as proof of reincarnation. Fowler offers the notion that reincarnation, while it is also not a fundamentalist Christian belief, does give comfort to many people who prefer to believe that human existence extends over many lifetimes and is part of a kind of evolution of the soul, a “becoming” that consists of more than just a one-shot attempt at getting the business of living right.
Another crucial component of Fowler’s scheme of reality is synchronicity, a phenomenon he devoted an earlier book to called “Synchrofile.” Part of his thesis is that meaningful coincidence and the apparently nonrandom order of events show us that reality is arranged by some higher force that does not, as Einstein said, “play dice with the universe.” Nothing is left to chance, perhaps, but human consciousness still perceives its reality through a veil of free will.
In “UFOs: The Ultimate Abduction,” Raymond Fowler has stitched together a continuum of phenomena whose elements harmonize beautifully and serve to make a wonderful kind of sense out of our admittedly limited glimpses into the Ultimate Truth. Perhaps it is his mission not only to learn the lessons God has laid out for him but to teach them to the rest of us as well.
With a population hovering around 20,000 today, Kingman is well-known for its location as a Route 66 gateway. Western star Andy Devine was born and raised in the town, and Clark Gable and Carole Lombard were married at the rectory of Saint John’s Methodist Episcopal Church, during a break in the shooting of “Gone with the Wind.” Pamela Anderson did one of her 1992 Playboy photo shoots at the corner of 4th Street and Andy Devine Avenue (US Route 66), and was brought in by the Kingman Police Department for indecent exposure. She was not charged, but was asked to write a letter of apology. (The town should apologize to her!)
It’s one of the most intriguing UFO “crash” cases of all time, which actually involves three separate episodes, starting in 1947 and continuing until today, but having its biggest impact in 1953. It even involves surviving human-alien occupants, gigantic forest fires which the ETs were thought to have been responsible for with the crash of their craft, and their escape from a guarded underground jail cell.
This has to be one of the greatest UFO mysteries of all time, but it is a case that has been pooh-poohed by skeptics who have never even checked into this intriguing tale. So it pretty much went by the wayside until historian Harry Drew stepped in and took matters into his own hands. His investigation has lasted over six years and is still ongoing.
The story of Kingman’s incredible UFO incident is a long and winding one, and is told in all its glorious detail in the massive, 538-page, oversized book, “Alien Lives Matter – It’s OK To Be Grey.” with its twenty odd contributors, including the authors of this article. Weighing in at 3.5 pounds, this is not a coffee table book – this is the coffee table!
The book is broken into two parts: Some call these cases mere “Urban Legends,” but, in shocking contrast, they are “all too real!” Over 20 of the world’s leading UFOlogists establish that humans have done battle with aliens over and over again, shooting at them, molesting them, hitting them, running them over, unleashing dogs upon them, and injuring — even killing them — through any means possible, as humans try to combat their fear of the unknown. In multiple instances, the aliens have fought back on land, in the air and in the seas. They have sought revenge, and, more often than not, gotten it, as these documented cases illustrate.
IS THERE A BLACK UFO EXPERIENCE?
The second part of the book’s “mission” is to dispel the concept held by many that African-Americans are not prone to have UFO experiences or to hold a belief or interest in the subject. Prof. Stephen Finley, of the University of Louisiana, explains how UFOs are part of the overall “Black experience.” Ours is a salute to the unsung “patriots of UFOlogy,” who have not been given the credit they deserve for their work in this field. We will cover this topic thoroughly in another piece.
KINGMAN WAS ONCE A GHOST OF A TOWN
Back when all the UFO activity got started, Kingman, AZ, was a “ghost of a town,” with about 3000 residents and a military base that had been closed for a while.
Of all the alleged UFO retrieval cases that have come to my attention, one incident – which is actually several incidents rolled up into one dynamic case – stands out, at least to us, above the rest.
This is a five star ***** case in anybody’s book – especially in ours!
It contains so many riveting elements that it’s hard to believe all these events took place over a period stretching from the late 1940s to 1953, but still continue in the area to this day for those “insiders” who are willing to persist in their investigations.
These “riveting elements” include:
** – An aerial overflight with a squadron of eight UFOs in fight formation.
** – At least one “UFO crash,” and two other “soft landings,” all documented and verified.
** – The connection between not one but two fierce forest fires and arson possibly caused by the arrival of “outside agitators.”
** – An incident in which human-looking Ultra-terrestrials were sighted in the area and taken into “protective custody,” only to have them vanish under the strangest of circumstances.
** – The disembarking in a “peculiar vehicle” to points unknown by unknown alien allies.

AN ATOMIC BOMB TEST
No one can be a hundred percent certain why Kingman attracted so much – almost maniacal – attention from the “sky people,” though an atomic bomb test in a neighboring state may have drawn them to the area.
One witness, Judith Ann Wolcott, has gone on record with the following proclamation concerning an atomic bomb test and the sighting of a UFO in close proximity.
“On May 19, 1953, at 05:05 AM local time, at Yucca Flat, Nevada, around 175 miles north of Kingman, one of a series of nuclear tests under the umbrella code-named Upshot-Knothole was set off. Sunrise that day was around 6:21, so, at the time of the blast the whole of the night sky was dark except for a slight pre-dawn glow along the eastern horizon. Within seconds of the blast some sort of a dark airborne object moving at an ultra-high rate of speed swept past to the east, traveling in a southerly direction almost as though it came from the test site tracking on a slightly downward trajectory and headed toward the mountains to the south.
“As the object lost altitude, suddenly a huge flash of light lit up the sky in the nearby mountains forward of the southern horizon. All along the object appeared to be unsteady, fairly thin, and possibly flat-circular. Although the sun was below the horizon the object was still high enough that it was able to catch the direct rays of the sun, wobbling enough that it was able to throw off a brilliant glint of sunlight from some portion of its underside as it tipped upward only to disappear as it tipped back. The flash of light near the base of the mountains was soon followed by a sound like a single clap of thunder.”
One individual has gone a long way in convincing me that that a series of UFO “crashes” outside the town of Kingman, AZ, might well be the most important UFO recovery case of all time, far surpassing even Roswell in notoriety and documentation.
We shall hear from historian Harry Drew as we continue down one long sandy desert road to find out the truth about the UFO retrieval at Kingman.

Turning back the clock to Friday, May, 22, 1953, the headline on the front page of the “Prescott Courier” cried out –
“DON’T LOOK NOW, BUT FLYING SAUCERS RETURN”
While the header just over the story itself reads: – “OBJECTS NOTED IN FORMATION FOR FULL HOUR”
FULL TEXT RELATED TO THE KINGMAN INCIDENT
“Return of Flying Saucers over Prescott with graphic accounts of their capers in the skies were reported here Friday to give credence to the stories of spaceships possibly from the outer world.
“Three reliable Prescott residents, one of whom previously scoffed at the stories of flying saucers and spaceships, were a bit reluctant Friday to tell of their witnessing the acrobatics of a ‘herd’ of these mysterious objects.
“The men, Bill Beers, president of the Prescott Sportsmen’s Club, Ray Temple, a post office employee, and O. Ed Olson, told of watching eight disc-like objects in the sky Thursday morning.
“The three had gone to Del Rio Springs Creek, some thirty miles north of the city, to check for trout placed in the stream for this week’s children’s fishing derby when they noticed the objects. They couldn’t believe what they saw: eight flying saucers appearing simultaneously.
“Temple was first to see the saucers and called them to the attention of his companions. Temple and Beers both gave a description of the objects and their activity to a Courier reporter.
“Beer, who has flown planes in the past 20 years, said the objects could not possibly have been planes, birds or balloons. He said that until yesterday he had pooh-poohed reports on flying saucers, but he was ‘no longer a skeptic.’
“Beers said the objects appeared to be about 10,000 feet in the air, but it was hard to judge not knowing the size of the craft.
“Both Beers and Temple said two of the discs remained alone and stationary during the hour as they were observed around 10 AM yesterday morning. The two stationary objects swooped around in formation, broke formation, ‘peeled-off’ and shot directly up and down in a manner that could not be duplicated by a plane. When the (eight crafts) moved, they varied from very slow to speeds faster than a jet plane, the observers reported.
“After performing these aerial acrobatics for an hour, all eight of the craft then sped off together toward Prescott.
“The day previous, March 20th, a woman and her granddaughter saw a ‘glowing object’ drifting over Copper Basin Road.”

THE EARLY ELEMENTS OF THE STORY
As it turns out, the Kingman incident is a touchy subject indeed, as it has long been covered up to a large degree by a cloak of disinformation and deception, due to a large degree of ignorance on the part of those who have not bothered to check the “facts” on their own, but have simply relied upon the negative reports issued by others who have never been to the scene or looked into the history of the case. Truly, it is a an incident – actually, a series of incidents – with many layers, a mystery inside a riddle, that has remained for the most part hidden under the desert sands of Arizona for generations, but thanks to one individual the Kingman retrieval is now about to be revealed in a new light.
If it wasn’t for an article published more than halfway across the country twenty years after the incident is said to have taken place, we probably would never have had the opportunity to learn about the incident in question. The original reference comes from an article that appeared in the Farmington, Massachusetts, edition of the “Middlesex News,” published on April 23, 1973. It came to light because a young man was planning to do a science project for school. The article came to the attention of longtime UFO researcher Raymond Fowler, who followed up on the case and was able to locate the key witness to the retrieval who maintains that he was in the military and assigned to the scene for recovery purposes.
The man, first identified as Fritz Werner for “security purposes,” was later revealed as being Arthur Stansel. Meeting with Werner/Stansel, Raymond Fowler was able to get the witness to this incredible event to sign an affidavit swearing to his role in the Kingman incident. It is part of a 95-page report prepared by Fowler at the time for the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena.
I, Fritz Werner, do solemnly swear that during a special assignment with the U.S. Air Force, on May 21, 1953, I assisted in the investigation of a crashed unknown object in the vicinity of Kingman, Arizona.
The object was constructed of an unfamiliar metal which resembled brushed aluminum. It had impacted twenty inches into the sand without any sign of structural damage. It was oval and about 30 feet in diameter. An entranceway hatch had been vertically lowered and opened. It was about 3-1/2 feet high and 1-1/2 feet wide. I was able to talk briefly with someone on the team who did look inside only briefly. He saw two swivel seats, an oval cabin, and a lot of instruments and displays.
A tent pitched near the object sheltered the dead remains of the only occupant of the craft. It was about 4 feet tall, dark brown complexion and had 2 eyes, 2 nostrils, 2 ears, and a small round mouth. It was clothed in a silvery, metallic suit and wore a skull cap of the same type material. It wore no face covering or helmet.
I certify that the above statement is true by affixing my signature to this document this day of June 7, 1973.
Signature: Fritz Werner Date Signed: June 7, 1973 Witnessed By: Raymond E. Fowler Date Signed: June 7, 1973
* * * * * * * * * *
Not one to rest on his laurels, Fowler attempted to substantiate the background of Stansel, which bought him in touch with such sources as Wright-Patterson AFB, Project Blue Book personnel, the Stanford Research Institute and “a number of persons within the military-industrial complex.” And while Fowler admits that “no additional witnesses could be found, the peripheral names, positions, tests, dates, and places mentioned within Mr. Werner’s personal account all check out exceptionally well.”
As part of the affidavit swore:
“On May 20, 1953, I worked most of the day at Frenchman Flat. In the evening, I received a phone call from the test director, Dr. Ed Doll, informing me that I was to go on a special job the next day. On the following day, around 4:30 P.M., I reported for special duty and was driven to Indian Springs Air Force Base near the proving ground where I joined about fifteen other specialists.
“There, we were put on a bus with other personnel who were already there. The bus windows were all blacked out, so that we couldn’t see where we were going. We rode for an estimated four hours. I think we were in the area of Kingman, Arizona, which is northwest of Phoenix and not too far from the Atomic Proving Ground in Nevada. During the bus trip, we were told by an Air Force full-Colonel that a super-secret Air Force vehicle had crashed and that since we were all specialists in certain fields, we were to investigate the crash in terms of our own specialty and nothing more.
“Finally, the bus stopped and we disembarked one at a time as our names were called, and escorted by military police to the area that we were to inspect. Two spotlights were centered on the crashed object, which was ringed with guards. The lights were so bright that it was impossible to see the surrounding area. The object was oval and looked like two deep saucers, one inverted upon the other. It was about thirty feet in diameter with convex surfaces, top and bottom. These surfaces were about twenty feet in diameter. Part of the object had sunk into the ground. It was constructed of a dull silver metal like brushed aluminum. The metal was darker where the saucer ‘lips’ formed a rim, around which were what looked like slots. A curved open hatch door was located on the leading end and was vertically lowered. There was a light coming from inside, but it could have been installed by the Air Force.
“My particular job was to determine, from the angle and the depth of impact into the sand, how fast the vehicle’s forward and vertical velocities were at the time of impact. The impact had forced the vehicle approximately twenty inches into the sand. There were no landing gear. There also were no marks or dents, that I can remember, on the surface – not even scratches. Questions asked, having nothing to do with our own special areas, were not answered.”
Harry Drew resides in Kingman, Arizona, right in the hub of all this unusual UFO-related “chaos” on the ground and in the sky. Drew is highly regarded for his professional ethics, impeccable credentials and trusted results as an old-fashioned, Indiana Jones-type of researcher who takes his fieldwork seriously and has an uncanny ability to ferret out the truth no matter how it‘s been distorted.
Drew is a Cultural Resource Specialist in Ancient Civilizations, a former Director and Curator of Museums of History, Anthropology and Archeology, as well as being a newspaper columnist and author of history for the past 40 years. Drew is also an experienced documentarian with expertise in visual media, photography, television and film production, and in the field of fine arts.
After years of research, Drew uncovered evidence indicating that the Kingman UFO story was the blending of several UFO events, one about a UFO landing and the other about a UFO crash that
happened four days later. Then Drew discovered there had been a third UFO which crashed and was an event missed altogether by “outsiders,” because word about all three UFOs and what happened during those ”7 Days In May”™ 1953 was a closely guarded secret mutually agreed to by Kingman residents but denied to “nonlocals.”
“In 1947,” Harry Drew notes, “‘UFO attacks at Kingman made front page news two days before the Roswell UFO crash story broke, even mentioning the direction the saucers came from. Newspaper accounts of UFOs over Kingman thrived in July 1947, even before the incident at Roswell had gotten implanted in the public’s consciousness.”
On the 7th of July, near Port Kingman, Arizona, mystery lights were observed. A newspaper account states: “Mrs. Albert Steele of Rutland reported seeing an oval-shaped, multi-colored flying saucer hovering over the CVPS gas plant early Monday morning during a heavy rain storm. The center of the ‘saucer’ was so bright she could not look at it steadily for any length of time, she said. She awakened her husband, she said, and he looked out the window and then went back to bed. ‘I’m always waking him during storms,’ she said. ‘He usually goes back to sleep.”‘
ALIENS SURVIVE CRASH — FROM THE PRIVATE FILES OF HARRY DREW
June 21, 1950, there is a UFO crash one mile away from the later May 24, 1953 UFO crash on the north face of the 8,256 foot high Hualapai Mountain. In the 1953 crash, there were two aliens who survived but were injured and one thought to be dead. There were also two UFO crew members said to be posing as “ambulance drivers” who picked up several of their “companions” who have been locked up in protective custody but were seen wandering the streets of Kingman.
TWO MASSIVE FOREST FIRES
The first fire was in 1950, the second in 1953. Both involved “strangers” found wandering about seemingly “out of place,” and out of touch with reality. They were immediately thought of as having somehow been involved in setting the fires.
“There was,” Drew explains, “a massive forest fire caused by what locals swore was from a disc falling from the sky into dense forest land on Hualapai Mountain 16 miles ‘easterly’ of Kingman.
“And it was also Sheriff Porter who later had to deal with the 1953 Kingman UFOs; the last of the three UFOs to go down was the second of two that crashed. It went down mid-morning on May 24, 1953 and was witnessed by locals who described it as a disc falling from the sky and crashing into dense forest land on Hualapai Mountain, starting a massive forest fire right in front of everyone in Old Town Kingman! This UFO crashed one mile from where the 1950 UFO went down. These forest fires were fought by the same men using the same primitive equipment each time.”
According to a clipping supplied by Drew, “It is estimated that 14,000 to 16,000 acres have been burnt over. Six cattle have been found burned to death, and other cattle with burns which have been found are now being treated. A total of 440 men who helped fight the fire are recorded on the time sheets, and an estimated $12,000 to $14,000 cost to the government and county has been caused by the fire, the Bureau of Land Management reports.
“No guess as to the origin of the fire has been made, and it is still too early to make an investigation into the cause. According to the sheriff’s office, no trace has as yet been found of the three men that Captain John A. Warren of the National Guard reported bringing to Kingman. The men boarded an ambulance in front of the hospital, according to Warren, and that is the last that has been heard of them.
“A reporter for ‘The Miner’ checked the Mohave General Hospital at press time this afternoon and hospital manager Joseph A. Copps said that their institution had not treated a single person for injuries suspected in the firefighting operation.”
How about that then, dear folks?
Drew adds that the only two roads leading in and out of town were both closed. There was no such thing as ERs or Burn Centers at the time. There were no other hospitals close by and those hospitals that existed were a considerable distance from Kingman, but they were contacted and asked if several men and been treated for burns. The few hospitals within the region reported no burn victims were seen or treated during the timeframe in question. Nor did any of the hospitals observe any vehicles resembling an ambulance, as had been said to have picked up the men.
AN INTERVIEW WITH A SURVIVING DEPUTY
“I am proud to say,” Drew continues, “that I did a supervised interview with the last surviving Deputy from this time period just before he passed away. Without leading this elderly man, he cooperated and volunteered clear recollections that matched information I was finding in my research and interviews with other witnesses. Of great interest was what happened early on when a Forest Service worker bringing up more supplies to fire crews noticed two individuals wearing some kind of coveralls (flight suits) who were also seen and described at the time by a third party, as ‘two strange looking men’ who were observed wandering aimlessly around, as if they were lost, or disoriented, right near where the forest fire had started (aka crash site).”
It was thought that they might have been arsonists!
TAKEN INTO CUSTODY – AND THEN THEY VANISHED!
“When these ‘two strange looking men’ were questioned by a Forest Service worker, they would not respond or even speak. Knowing there had been no thunderstorms and lightning (contrary to UFO tales told today), the Forest Service Worker suspected the fire was arson-related and the ‘two strange looking men’ were taken into custody and transported to the Sheriff’s office located in Old Town Kingman, where they were locked up inside a concrete vault built below ground level that has no openings except for a locked entry/exit door that is inside the Sheriff‘s office. This vault still exists and is located in the basement of the historic 1915 Courthouse, which has been off limits to the public for the past 35 years.
“I met with the Mohave County Court Security Chief and talked about documents I found detailing the layout of the Sheriff’s office in 1953. After describing some of the particulars in the documents to the Security Chief, he took me into the old Sheriff’s office and allowed me to enter restricted areas, shoot photographs of any area I wanted, including the oak chair the Forest Service worker sat on while waiting for the Sheriff, and then permitted me to enter, photograph and fully examine the interior of the concrete vault where two ETs vanished!
“Deputies knew the Sheriff would want to personally question the ‘two strange looking men’ and said that to the Forest Service worker, who then sat down on that oak chair I mentioned, still right by the door to the Detention Room (Concrete Vault). This was an extraordinary discovery for me. No changes after 60 years!
“When the Sheriff arrived and was briefed about what happened he no doubt had a flashback to what happened in 1947, then again in 1950. This had the same sulfur smell of being the hell he already went through and it was back again on May 24, 1953! Whether from a secret promise to himself, or to those with him at the Sheriff’s office, Sheriff Porter was ready to deal with this and did so just moments after stepping into the concrete vault to confirm the ‘two strange looking men’ who had been locked up inside had VANISHED without a trace. No one saw anything!”
THE REMOVAL OF THE CRAFT AND WHERE IT WAS TAKEN
Harry Drew points out, and rightfully so, that there has been a great deal of conjecture about how the craft that came down were removed, how they were able to make the journey over such seemingly rough terrain, and where all the recovered objects ended up. The retrieval is a fascinating mystery in itself. The wherefores can all be found in the works of Mr. Drew, on his web site and in the various interviews he has given to us and others. https://www.kingmanufocrashes.com/
Interviews with Harry Drew On Our YouTube Channel, “Mr UFOs Secret Files”
I’ve never tried to conceal the fact that I worked in the adult entertainment industry. No, I wasn’t a porn star though I did have a cameo role in a film shot in San Francisco and starring Candy Samples. Candy was at one time married to soft porn producer Russ – “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls” – Meyer. Although Meyer has been deceased for many years, his films are still available with the income going to his estate.
Raven de la Croix
Most notable is the fact that our friend and Sedona, Arizona, UFO abductee – the very talented actress, dancer and artist Raven de la Croix – can be seen strutting her feminine wiles in Russ’s box office hit “Raven,” doubtlessly named after Ms. de la Crois in honor of her charm and beauty. Later on, Raven describes in these pages her sexual encounter and abduction at the hands of the aliens.
At one point back in the mid-1970s I was the movie critic for Hustler Magazine (Larry Flynt was too creepy for my taste) and a couple of years later Editor-in-Chief of Adult Cinema Review. So, whenever an adult film starlet was in town, chances are I would hook up with them to do an interview or attend a screening of their most recent XXX flick. I can’t say a lot of them had UFO experiences, but a few did, and others were mildly interested in the subject enough so that we would hang out at Bernard’s, a bar just off the Minnesota Strip, a section of the Times Square “red light district” that catered to some rather hot-blooded ladies who worked the neighborhood peep shows and topless bars. 42nd Street was kind of raw in those days, and a real draw for out- of-towners – way out- of-towners in our case, I would say.
Model-turned-actress Marilyn Chambers had a very provocative abduction experience.
“Behind the Green Door” star Marilyn Chambers was one of the better known adult film actresses. In fact, she had been at one point an aspiring model whose face graced the box cover of Ivory Snow detergent. She was also a legit singer and a dancer, though she would still shake her booty at some of the Manhattan strip clubs where she would attract a sizeable crowd and make an evening very profitable, both through a cut of the door and tips that her fans lavished upon her (they would throw the fives and tens in a bucket as she paraded around the room).
To say the least, it was all good in the hood – if that was the kind of excitement you were seeking.
I should explain that Chambers was, when I met her, married to a Svengali-type guy by the name of Chuck Traynor, who was previously hitched to “Deep Throat’s” Linda Lovelance. Lovelace claimed that Traynor had forced her into adult films by holding a gun to her head and beating her to have sex with other men. I can’t comment on these allegations. I did have lunch with Traynor, who came off as being the ultimate sleaze, and he was disliked by most adult film industry people (cast and crew). But that has nothing to do with our UFO tale.
The National Tattler.
I wrote up Marilyn’s UFO encounter for the National Tattler, a weekly tabloid that actually printed a lot of stories on the paranormal and were fairly accurate in their reporting, especially when I was one of their stringers and had a UFO event to tell. They were more likely to take a story than the Enquirer, which had a higher, tougher criterion when it came to accepting freelance articles. Marilyn, as I recall, was stopped at a red light when a UFO parked itself overhead and followed her, keeping pace with her car for a couple of miles. If you can find the account in an old issue of Saga’s UFO Report, which I have since lost, I believe there was an illustration that she did for me of the ship which I can’t find the original of either.
What I promised not to reveal at the time was Marilyn’s sexual abduction experience, which she was afraid of telling for fear it might harm her career. She had released an album of disco music and wanted to go “legit” and thought this might possibly damage her reputation (fat chance!). Don’t make me laugh, but I did keep my promise to keep her experience to myself. But now, since MC passed away many years ago, I can tell all about what transpired to the best of my recollection.
The night of her UFO sighting, which I think might have taken place in Detroit or Chicago – but don’t hold me to that – Marilyn had gone to bed around midnight. There was a storm, she said, brewing outside, but she had kept the window ajar to take in a bit of fresh air. Shortly thereafter, a bright light shone into her bedroom which she initially thought was someone attempting to turn around in the street.
Suddenly, Marilyn says her bed was surrounded by three or four shadowy figures who reached out, beginning to touch and caress her. Chambers admitted to me that since she was in real life easy to excite sexually so she thought perhaps she was simply experiencing a nocturnal orgasm in a dream state. But the hands felt all too real.
“They certainly were not what you would call tender caresses,” she elaborated.
What did the figures and hands look like?
“Well, they were a bit longer and bonier than those of a human,” Marilyn answered, “and they had large heads and a broad torso, but they weren’t monstrous or anything.”
Like many other abductees, Chambers said she was pulled through the wall and found herself inside some sort of tiny compartment somewhere outside of her apartment. She says the beings proceeded to have their way with her.
“I can’t say it wasn’t pleasurable. They invited me to have a drink with them and this settled my nerves and made me more relaxed.”
Unlike some of the abductees who feel they are being used in some form of experimentation, Marilyn did not get that impression.
“They seemed to find it very pleasurable,” she recalled. “I wasn’t forced, but neither was I a completely willing partner!”
Frankly, I can’t recall how or under what circumstances Chambers returned home. It’s as much a blur to me now as it was to her at the time of her experience. Figuring I wouldn’t have to document her story, I probably didn’t take very good notes. I remember conducting the interview and the background noise was so overwhelming when I tried to transcribe the tape I probably never completed the job.
If there are any other adult performers out there who have had UFO experiences drop me a line. We’ll keep your identity to ourselves, or blab it to the world, whatever whets your “noodle” (hum, hum).
THE NORDICS HAVE THEIR WAY
The sexy Nordic space women are a sight to behold in their form-fitting jumpsuits.
Most followers of the UFO mystery will know of what and whom I speak when I say that there are presumably Nordic-type “Space Brothers” living on the Earth alongside us mere mortals, who, while from another place and time, manage to reside here without being detected. Some may not even realize that they have come from the stars, either literally or having reincarnated into an earthly body to make the journey.
To my way of thinking, the Nordics are your dyed-in-the-wool Aryans. Blonde hair. Blue eyes. Six feet tall. They give the impression that they have just gotten off the set of a daytime TV soap opera, perfect teeth, long tapered fingers and a sleek and slender waste line. From what we hear, the Nordic space women are a sight to behold in their form-fitting jump suits. (We’re told no bras are worn on their home planets.) The early contactees George Adamski, Truman Bethrum and Orfeo Angelucci spoke of these visually stunning alien women in glowing terms, but they never did let us peek behind the veil to see what they might have done to support these peace-loving confederation travelers, especially when a close contact was made in the moonlight of the Mojave Desert.
Indeed, we would like to know just how close were these close encounters?
Truman Bethrum’s human wife did identify Aura Raines as the cause of their breakup in divorce papers that she filed in California, and one source close to the contactee once said: “Truman told me that Aura was a sight to behold, even for the most discriminating earthmen’s eye.”
HOWARD MENGER WAS DIFFERENT!
The Venusian girl on the rocks as illustrated on the front cover of Menger’s book “From Outer Space to You”
Since this is not a book about the Space Brothers or about UFOs in particular, but one about the sexcapades of our off-world visitors, we promise to stay more or less on topic.
I knew Howard Menger fairly well. He and his wife Connie were good eggs, as far as I was concerned, despite what some skeptical folks might have said about their supposed adventures in space warp speed. Even after they retired from their sign painting business, they would make the long haul from Vero Beach, Florida, to Phoenix or San Diego to speak at my various UFO expos, even going so far as to drag, in a mini-trailer behind their auto, the “XR-1,” a homespun saucer-shaped craft that Howard had built and which he said would eventually fly, or had flown once before, using a series of rotating magnets as its principle means of propulsion. Howard had gotten the plans for this device from his outer space friends, who looked remarkably human and were often seen landing and coming out of your typical saucer-shaped craft that would park in the apple orchard behind his High Bridge, New Jersey home.

In the mid-1950s Howard held an outdoor convention on his property that was well-attended, mainly due to the support given by Long John Nebel, the dean of all night talk show hosts, who was the originator of the paranormal/UFO broadcast type program, long before Art Bell took over the dusk to dawn airwaves (and so recognized). Photographed seated and taking notes on Menger’s grounds was said to be the spaceman, Val Thor, who later was to befriend the late minister Rev. Frank E. Stranges. Stranges had met Valiant inside the Pentagon, where he had stayed with our government’s knowledge for three years. In general, it can be said that from time to time, some very strange “people” were showing up on Menger’s estate. No one who hung around his place on a regular basis hoping for a spacey contact of their own could possibly deny this fact.
As Howard told the story later in life, the sun was shining brightly on that day in 1932 – a day that was to change Menger’s life forever and shape the belief patterns of many who were to be drawn in the years ahead to his uniquely divergent sense of reality.
“There, sitting on a rock by the brook,” Menger poetically reminisced in his memoirs, “The High Bridge Incident,” “was the most exquisite woman my young eyes had ever beheld! The warm sunlight caught the highlights of her long golden hair as it cascaded around her face and shoulders. The curves of her lovely body were delicately contoured . . . revealed through the translucent material of clothing which reminded me of the habit that skiers wear.” To say that the young Howard Menger was more “unworldly wise” than his age would seem to allow is no minor point when relating his life’s most impacting moments.
Howard and Connie Menger
Howard continues by explaining that the lady on the rock “turned her head in my direction. Even though very young, the feeling I received was unmistakable. It was a tremendous surge of warmth, love and physical attraction, which emanated from her to me. Suddenly, all my anxiety was gone, and I approached her as one would an old friend or loved one. She seemed to radiate and glow as she sat on the rock, and I wondered if it were due to the unusual quality of the material she wore, which had a shimmering, shiny texture not unlike but far surpassing the sheen of nylon. The clothing had no buttons, fasteners or seams I could discern. She wore no makeup, which would have been unnecessary to the fragile transparency of her camellia-like skin with pinkish undertones. Her eyes, opalescent discs of gold, turned their smiling affection on me with a tranquil luminescence.”
This initial contact with a minor under the age of ten did seem overly amorous for such a young boy – we hesitate to think that it went any further than just a brief flirtation and did not involve lewd and lascivious behavior with a minor.
In 1946, when he returned home from the war, Menger met the stone girl again, but this time she had come out of a UFO clad in a gray-blue plaid outfit that outlined her perfect body. After informing her about her mission on Earth – spreading love and peace among men – the girl kissed Menger. He asked if they would see each other again, getting a negative answer. But she promised that one day he would meet her sister, a Venusian incarnated on Earth. “She will work with you and be with you for a lifetime. You will recognize her as soon as you see her,” the saucerian gal confirmed.
The ironic punchline is that years later Howard DID come face-to-face with this spacewoman’s identical twin. Initially, Howard thought that an attractive blonde named Connie Weber, who showed up at one of his conclaves, was the same woman he had met as a youth on the back forty. Eventually, he surmised that she was the reincarnation of a spacewoman that he had known in a biblical sense in a previous life on Venus. Howard divorced his first wife and married the beautiful blonde interplanetary lookalike. They had two wonderful girls and did work together for many decades before Howard passed into the Venusian sunset. (Connie died a few years ago at the age of 95.)
THE MUNDANE AND THE EXTRAORDINARY
But to get on with our story.
At one point in my publishing career I was a contributing editor for a number of Penthouse-style forum magazines. These were the digest-sized publications that printed actual letters from readers describing their sexual experiences, anywhere from telling how they lost their virginity to how they got away with cheating on their mate. Penthouse Forum was the most “prestigious” of these publications and, being attached to a magazine that sold over two million copies at one point, it had quite a run and could boast of a couple hundred thousand readers at its peak.
There were numerous imitators and these are the publishers I worked for. My job was to rewrite the letters to make them readable. Let me tell you, that was often a hard task. Forgetting the bad punctuation and the terrible spelling, just to read some of these letters and format them so they could be sent to the typesetter was a daunting undertaking. One such digest was Velvet Touch, the offspring of the glossy Velvet, which made a gallant attempt to produce a publication that was “hot enough” to satisfy the most jaded sexual tastes of its largely male audience, yet tried, at the same time, to appear mainstream enough so that women would also purchase the product. If the publishers were lucky enough, they would get the news dealer to place Velvet Touch as close to Cosmopolitan as possible, hoping to attract a bit of a crossover audience.
The publisher at one point was kind enough to place an ad of mine on the magazine’s back cover (which he was unable to sell anyway). In bold type, it screamed – “FORCED INTO SEX ONBOARD A FLYING SAUCER.” I can’t even remember what I was trying to sell!
As it turned out, most of the names on the letters I edited showed that Velvet Touch never really reached far into the women’s market. And while nobody got paid for writing the letters the magazine published, we did have a couple of contributors who seemed to maintain an active sex life and were willing to air their more mundane sexcapades in our pages – more mundane, that is, when compared to the adventures with the sexterrestrials we now find ourselves confronted by.
ROMANTIC RENDEZVOUS ALIEN-STYLE
Reviewing the details of Howard Menger’s romantic interlude with the woman on the rock, this tale positions itself, if anywhere, in the category of a tender alien relationship, which you might think actually belongs as part of the relatively new publishing genre known as “Alien Human Romance,” but we have proof that the New Jersey contactee beat these would-be modern alien romance novelists by several decades. A quick trip to Amazon.com will find such pandering titles you can place in your internet shopping cart as “Alien Pregnant Bride,” “His Alien Virgin,” “Alien Savior” (from the cover, this book looks like it takes a bi-sexual approach to ET lovemaking), and “Alien Sex 101,” which I would have every reason to believe is too much of a primer for our more advanced sexterrestrial hip readers.
Note: My personal “alien out of sexual control” award has to go to “His Human Slave,” described thusly: “COLLARED AND CAGED, HIS HUMAN SLAVE AWAITS HER TRAINING . . . She’s a human, born into slavery . . . Prince Zander bought and paid for her, which means she’s his now. His to use. His to impregnate. Because according to a gene-matching program, she’ll produce the best offspring.”
And you thought alien anal probes couldn’t easily be outdone in this paranormal universe where almost anything seems plausible?
By the way, on a cosmic scale of one to ten, I am told you merely have to look to your average star voyagers from the Pleiades to find the most beautiful spacewomen around (sorry you weren’t so lucky, Mr. Boas).
THE WITCHES AND THE EAGER STUDENT OF THE OCCULT
During the early 1970s, I had organized one of the first metaphysical schools in the country. We had some really talented psychics and occultists teaching a variety of classes on anything from astral projection to reading the tarot cards. People were passing through our doors all day and night to sign up for classes.
I guess I got to meet a lot of unusual people in those days. Like my two female witch friends, Walli Elmlark and the very buxom Witch Hazel (she really had her name changed, she showed me her driver’s license). Walli was the White Witch of New York who wrote a column for the rock magazine Circus. She introduced me to David Bowie and invited King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp to join us in a sky-watch. Hazel, on the other hand, wore black clothing, rode a motorcycle, had a pilot’s license and once or twice sketched out scenes from her past life where she had been tortured – half naked – at the hands of some ruthless male priests. Completely bizarro. But when the pot smoke drifted away, everyone seemed quite normal.
Tim Beckley’s favorite witches: the voluptuous Witch Hazel and the White Witch of New York, Walli Elmlark.
One of the occult school patrons by the name of Ruthie signed up for a couple of classes, and, since she was spending a few hours a week hanging around, we would chit-chat from time to time. She was a rather stocky brunette with curves in all the right places. Hey, I was young and single and had an eye for the ladies, though I made it a policy not to ask out those who entered through our doors who were presumably coming for spiritual guidance.
Ruthie was the type of person who had no problem discussing whatever was on her mind.
One day she told me something was troubling her and, as I was the chief guru, she wanted my opinion.
She told me before signing up for classes at our school that she had attended the functions of a group uptown who had been a lot “darker” in their approach to the occult. Not that we were what you would call “New Age Bliss Bunnies,” but most of our group had aspirations to do good with the paranormal talents they possessed and would even sometimes turn down those who openly said they were seeking psychic revenge on someone who they felt had wronged them or tried to steal their lover away. Things can get rather messy on the astral plane and you don’t know who – or what – you might attract, so “better to leave well enough alone” seemed to be the order of the day at the New York School of Occult Arts and Sciences.
“I met this rather handsome guy over at the other group who was channeling UFO entities on a regular basis,” Ruthie said. “I liked the messages he was receiving. In fact, he looked like one of the messengers from space he called Ashtar.”
As we’ve mentioned, these Nordic, humanoid, Ultra-Terrestrials are typically male, six to seven feet tall with long blond hair, blue eyes and skin tones ranging from fair to tanned, perhaps a bit on the feminine or androgynous side, sort of like a real Ziggy Stardust. They were mostly benevolent and most often possessed telepathic powers that would enable them to read the minds of humans.
Ruthie told me she liked being in the company of this individual since he seemed so “spiritually aware” – and she admitted she was digging on his good looks. After a channeling session at “the other” psychic facility across town, the gentleman (I can’t remember what she told me his actual name was, but let’s just call him “Paul”) asked Ruthie to come back to his apartment to continue the evening’s discussion on UFOs and the arrival of the space brotherhood, which he predicted would happen within a few years (a lot of us thought this might be the case in the early to mid-1970s).
Paul went on weaving the philosophical beliefs of the space brethren into the conversation as they sat sharing the same couch. As the night went on a “warm feeling” overtook the girl, who months later was telling me of her night on the town with a space channeler. She said she didn’t feel shy and that she was beginning to get turned on to him being so close. She was not about to refuse his advances if he tried to make one.
But something more “inappropriate” transpired.
“Before I knew it – and without warning me – Paul slipped into a trance state and began to channel some unearthly entity. But it wasn’t the gentle Ashtar, it was someone who spoke in a more powerful, more uneven, authoritarian voice. He said most earthlings were weak and could not stand up for themselves if an attack from space were to take place. In particular, he said the women of our species were easily manipulated and with that he put his hands on me and began to caress my body harshly but in a masterful way.”
Luckily, there was no one around us as she related her story or I might have been the one to have become embarrassed over the conversation. Ruthie insisted she had little to say about the outcome of the awkward situation she found herself in. “It felt as if I had been partially hypnotized or was under the channeler/spaceman’s mental control. I could not pull away from him as he pressed me to the couch and had his way.”
Ruthie insists the sex was “sort of consensual,” in that she was not drugged nor was she physically forced ultimately to do anything against her will. In fact, she admitted to me that it was the best orgasm she ever had and if offered a ride onboard one of their craft she would not hesitate to take a trip to their home planet. I think she said this half in jest, but maybe she wasn’t kidding, a possibility I considered when I had a chance to think about our conversation later.
Ruthie says she was really “feeling the vibes” from the channeler, but once he came out of the state of mind he was in he didn’t seem to show a great deal of interest in carrying on with the conversation which they then finished up rather quickly.
“I attended a few more of his channeling sessions, and Paul was very civil to me after that night on the couch,” Ruthie remembered. “But the group we were involved in dissolved eventually and I didn’t see him around after that.”
Ruthie wanted to know if she should feel guilty about experiencing a great deal of sexual satisfaction with the entity who almost seemed to possess the body of the UFO channel. I told her it probably wasn’t a good idea to be put into such a compromising position as one might never know until it’s too late what they had gotten themselves into. It could be that the entity was demonic, even if the channeler was not a black magician like Aleister Crowley.
I guess she took my advice as she never brought up the subject again.
I found that such cases as this were not that unusual; though it’s not something most workshop attendees felt comfortable in talking about – only at Tim Beckley’s NY Occult Center it seemed to be OK!
This article could easily be titled “Sex Among The Stars” or “How ET Wishes To Mate With You!” For whether it’s the greys, the insectoids, the Dero of subterranean legend, the reptilians or the handsome Nordic space brothers, the term “close encounters” takes on a whole new meaning. Close is close, but this is really as close as you can possibly get – even to the point of molestation in all its various forms.
· Are you ready to explore a region of the paranormal that is typically relegated to the “ghetto” neighborhood of UFO research? Does the idea of sex with aliens thrill you or repel you? Reading the latest book from Global Communications/Inner Light, called “Screwed By The Aliens,” will help you make up your mind.
· If the subject is new to you, you will likely be surprised to learn how commonplace sexual incidents onboard the ships and among the aliens truly are. It’s a frequent happenstance but is rarely talked about, even among diehard believers in alien abduction.
· Some researchers have long defined the involuntary nature of alien abduction, with its many invasive and painful elements, as a form of “rape” – whether or not sex takes place during the given encounter experience. But, as “Screwed By The Aliens” demonstrates, there are numerous cases where physical sex between humans and aliens DOES take place.
· Case studies from the files of various researchers show a cross-section of responses to the alien sexual encounter. Some experiencers say that sex with aliens is much more pleasurable than anything offered by a human lover while others recall the traumatizing nightmare of being physically powerless and endure a never-ending sense of personal violation.
The topic of ETs and their sexual mores has spawned a wide variety of counterculture products – like punk rock groups such as Alien Sex Fiends and even comic books and trading cards.
After more than half a century spent covering UFOs and their related phenomena, journalist, editor and publisher Timothy Green Beckley encountered a new word, one not quite ready to be added when the Webster’s Dictionary’s routinely updates recent additions to the English language.
The word Beckley discovered is “exophiliac,” and you may be surprised to learn that it means “a person who craves sex with aliens.”
If, on the other hand, you shy away from the aliens and want them to keep their hands to themselves, you are a bit harder to classify, Beckley explains. “Astrophobia” is a fear of outer space and everything in it, so that would include ETs. Xenophobia is a fear of anyone from another place, often defined as a “fear of foreigners.”
“Perhaps we can create our own verbiage to describe this fear,” Beckley ventures. “Something like Exophobic perhaps? As I see it, if it’s good for you, it works for me.”
The book includes contributions from myself (in the interest of full disclosure) as well as 17 other researchers and authors. Some of the biggest names in the field are represented here, to include John Keel and Brad Steiger, both of whom are deceased but whose pioneering work in going beyond the “nuts-and-bolts” school of UFOlogy continues to influence the field in many ways. By employing multiple authors for the book, Beckley is able to provide numerous perspectives on the issue of sexual contact that run the gamut from extremely hostile accusations of rape to more benign beliefs, like a benevolent hybrid breeding program that will ultimately save mankind from total extinction.
The notion that alien contact often includes a sexual component is not exactly a new one. But it has been relegated, for the most part, to a seldom-acknowledged, embarrassing “ghetto” neighborhood of Ufology that most researchers prefer to simply ignore. It is Beckley’s intention to confront the sexual issue head on, from many points of view, and as honestly as the data allows.
THE FIRST SEXUAL ABDUCTION CASE OF THE MODERN UFO ERA
Brazilian farmer (who later became a well-established lawyer) Antonio Villas Boas was the first to receive attention for a sexual encounter after his experience onboard a UFO with a female alien who had intercourse with him.
If you accept the notion that the modern UFO era began with the Kenneth Arnold sighting in 1947, then you should also allow for the first known and recorded sexual abduction case as having happened ten years later. In October of 1957, a 23-year-old Brazilian farmer named Antonio Villas Boas was taken from his tractor to what he thought at first was a shining star descending to Earth. In his terror, he tried to flee on foot but was forcibly taken onboard an alien spacecraft.
There Boas was stripped naked and a sample of his blood was taken. A nude woman entered the room where he was being held. She began to caress him, ultimately seducing him. After Boas and the female had intercourse together, two of the “crewmen” appeared and summoned the woman away. Before leaving, she turned to the farmer and pointed at her belly, then pointed at him, and finally at the heavens.
“After having served as breeding stock,” writes author Scott Corrales in a chapter in the new book, “Antonio was unceremoniously led off the vehicle, which took off immediately.”
Though it was widely ridiculed in its day, the Antonio Villas Boas case is, pardon the expression, a “seminal” one in the history of alien abduction, especially abductions that have a sexual element. The crucial story is covered by Corrales and a few of the other contributors to “Screwed By The Aliens,” allowing the incident to be seen from the varying perspectives of the assortment of writers Beckley has gathered.
SOUL MATE FROM THE STARS
Artist David Huggins insists he has mated with Crescent, a female alien, since the age of 17, and has produced a number of alien children. A movie “Love and Saucers” can be found streaming on Amazon and elsewhere.
By contrast, a longtime acquaintance of Beckley’s, the artist David Huggins, describes a much different sort of relationship with a pretty female alien. Huggins is quite open in calling the interstellar lover named Crescent his “soul mate.”
In an interview conducted for the podcast “Exploring the Bizarre,” which Beckley co-hosts with writer Tim R. Swartz, Huggins was asked: “Isn’t it true that you consider your relationship with Crescent to be a beautiful relationship that has blossomed into an interspecies romance that has lasted for decades and has resulted in Crescent bearing your children?”
“That would be an accurate description of the ongoing experience,” Huggins replied.
Along with filling many canvases that depict his amorous adventures with Crescent, Huggins has also done a movie called “Love and Saucers” that tells their story on film. The movie is available for VOD streaming on iTunes, Amazon, Vimeo, Google Play and YouTube. It’s a fascinating reversal of the more frequently encountered horrifying atrocities of sex-related UFO experiences and may truly be a case of “Love Triumphant.”
THE TRULY UNFUNNY ANAL PROBE
In popular culture, one of the of the best known alien/sexual story elements is the “anal probe,” which began as a tortured admission by “Communion” author Whitley Strieber when he described being rectally penetrated by some kind of alien device whose purpose was unknown to him. A doctor who examined Strieber afterwards told him that the tissue damage in his rectal area indicated that the author had obviously been “raped.” When Strieber included the anal rape episode in “Communion,” as well as in the 1989 movie version of his bestseller, it quickly became a cultural giggle and heaped even more ridicule on an already deeply humiliated Strieber.
“Screwed By The Aliens” features a chapter that chronicles the progress of the “anal probe” meme and its use by, for example, the “South Park” cartoon series on Comedy Central. In an interview I did with Strieber nearly 30 years ago, he told me that he regretted going public with his anal probe experience but felt that he owed it to his readership to be honest about it. Contrary to popular opinion, he felt he was being “compulsively honest” as opposed to being a “compulsive liar.”
UNCOVERING THE MEMORIES OF RAPE
The late Dr. Karla Turner was an outspoken advocate of “human rights” for those abducted by aliens. She and her family had all suffered the alien abduction experience and she devoted the rest of her life to researching the phenomenon that had so profoundly changed her perception of reality. She eventually wrote three books on the subject that are now considered classics, “Into the Fringe,” “Taken” and “Masquerade of Angels.”
According to another late abduction researcher, Budd Hopkins, the simple fact that alien abduction is an involuntary experience, that a person is “taken” without the person’s permission, forces one to define the experience as a form of “rape.”
But what Turner was talking about went way beyond a sort of “metaphorical” rape; she was instead accusing the aliens of the literal and physical sexual violation of their powerless human victims. Turner claimed deception was often used by the aliens to make the abductee a willing sexual partner. The alien might take the form of an abductee’s spouse or disguise itself as a celebrity that the abductee was known to find attractive. The perversions involved are also quite disturbing to read about, such as alien pedophilia and their forcing abductees to have bestial sex with animals. Anyone who reads these accounts, if the stories are to be taken at face value, would quite naturally feel morally outraged, disgusted and angry.
But Turner herself cautions the reader that claims of this nature, usually made by abductees who undergo regressive hypnosis to recover memories from within an alien-imposed amnesia, have to be weighed very carefully before one leaps to any easy conclusions. The strangeness and the high drama could have numerous possible causes and the simple gratification of alien prurient desires is but one possibility among many.
DEATHS THAT SILENCED HUMAN DISSENT
Artist Wes Crum depicts how some aliens have abducted humans – in many cases women for nefarious purposes.
Yet Turner certainly had her allies in the field. The late Barbara Bartholic, an Oklahoma-based researcher, joined Turner’s team and did much of the hypnotic regression work for Turner’s investigation into alien sexual abuse. A hypnotic regression session with abductee Ted Rice conducted by Bartholic is included in “Screwed By The Aliens” in which Rice relives a sexual encounter involving intercourse between his then-living grandmother and his deceased grandfather. An alien took the form of his late grandfather in order to seduce his unwilling grandmother into sexual congress. As I said, it’s often very disturbing stuff.
You may have noticed reading this article that a great many of the experts quoted in the new book are now deceased. In the cases of Turner (who died of cancer in 1996) and Bartholic (who died of a stroke in 2010), people who followed their work and agreed with their estimation of the situation believe the two women were taken before their time by a hostile alien presence that didn’t want any opposition to its evil agenda – that they were simply murdered because of their anti-alien beliefs.
If that is the case, then it hasn’t stopped Eve Lorgen, another abduction researcher, from openly declaring her determination to follow in the footsteps of Turner and Bartholic and uncover the truth about alien sexual and psychological manipulations. Lorgen is the author of “The Love Bite: Alien Interference in Human Love Relationships,” which defines the love bite as a kind of “psychic rape” in which the abducted victim is led to bond with a targeted love partner chosen by the alien beings. A great many tortuous emotions are often part of the mix as lovers struggle to cope with sexual and romantic feelings that are not their “own.”
Portions of an interview I conducted with Lorgen about “The Love Bite” are combined with case studies taken from her files. Strangely, some of the women who spoke to Lorgen have said that sex with an alien entity is the most pleasurable they’ve ever experienced, that the erotic thrills go way beyond what happens with a human partner. That’s one reason that overcoming the effects of alien sexual manipulation is often a very difficult process and requires an extraordinary degree of emotional strength. But Lorgen’s case studies demonstrate that liberating one’s self from this bizarre form of bondage can be done.
BELIEVERS FROM ACADEMIA ARE HEARD FROM
Podcasts such as our “Exploring the Bizarre” have been outspoken on the topic of sex with aliens.
Then there are the academics and their research. Dr. Michael Grosso, who has taught humanities and philosophy at several universities, contributes a chapter on the overt symbolism and hidden meanings of the sexual and reproductive stories that abductees tell. Grosso struggles with how such a technologically advanced civilization would need human help at all in strengthening their gene pool, but says the overarching metaphor is still one of alien sickness seeking a human healing. He also wonders if the alien hybrids being produced could be of some advantage to humanity as opposed to serving only the needs of the aliens.
Another academic professional joining the ranks of Beckley’s authors is Dr. Greg Little, who holds a doctorate in counseling and educational psychology and provides a fascinating account of demonic bedroom visitors as recorded down through the ages. He is referring, of course, to the female succubus and the male incubus, demons said to visit human victims of the opposite sex as they lay sleeping for the purpose of taking sexual pleasure as well as for the harvesting of sperm and ova.
This scenario, popularized in the religious lore of medieval Europe, so completely duplicates what alien abductees have to say about the sexual aspects of close encounters that it is impossible make any meaningful distinction between the two. There is also a direct link here to the sixth chapter of Genesis, in which angels – or the sons of God – feel compelled to come down from heaven for the purpose of having sex with human females and as a result beget a race of giants who come to be highly regarded on Earth.
PREGNANCY, GENETICS AND ANOMALOUS DNA
The notion of alien-induced pregnancy is given thorough coverage by the aforementioned Brad Steiger as well as in the gripping account of Christa Tilton, who reveals to Beckley the details of being used as a surrogate mother by the aliens. Meanwhile, William Kern offers new theories on the use of DNA and other genetics-related elements of alien abduction, focusing on the parallel nature of reptilian reproduction as we know it on Earth. To bring it all home, Kern also shares an interesting encounter of his own with a possible alien female.
Peter Khoury, whose bizarre experience with two female beings led to an amazing DNA breakthrough.
According to Swartz: “Dr. Drew’s PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) DNA profiling of the hair revealed that it came from someone who was biologically close to normal human genetics, but of an unusual racial type – a rare Chinese Mongoloid type – one of the rarest human lineages known, that lies further from the human mainstream than any other except for African pygmies and aboriginals. Even more bizarre, the mitochondrial DNA profiling revealed a rare Basque/Gaelic-type DNA in the hair root, along with the indications of the CCR5 gene deletion factor – indicating possible viral resistance against diseases such as HIV and smallpox.
“The incredible finding of the DNA study seems to show human genetic manipulation on a scale not yet accomplished by modern science. There is also the disturbing indication that the ‘humans’ that supplied the hair sample have been genetically altered to be resistant to sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV/AIDS. This is an interesting development considering the stories that have been circulated for decades about a possible human/extraterrestrial hybrid program being conducted by some unknown group.”
Admittedly, the hair comes from a verifiably human source but has many anomalous qualities nonetheless. The fact that the creature is designed to be resistant to HIV/AIDS may indicate that it is called upon to have intercourse on a frequent basis with people who are “total strangers” and whose health status in terms of sexually transmitted diseases is unknown.
SOME LIGHTER MOMENTS
“Exophiliac” means “a person who craves sex with aliens.”
But “Screwed By The Aliens” is not all darkness and gloom. As is typical for him, Beckley provides some lighter moments, such as his essay on sex with aliens in the movies, profusely illustrated with movie stills and theater posters. Sci-Fi is rife with sexual scenes and incidents that bring together humans and the not-so-human for what Beckley calls “Creature Couplings.” Another bit of fun comes from Nomar Slevik, who shares several pulp magazine covers that depict beautiful, buxom, human women being sexually preyed upon by aliens who take whatever form struck the imagination of the given artist.
In the opening pages of the book, Beckley grapples with the idea of finding a final answer to the sexual nature of some alien encounters and to his own place in the UFO scheme of things.
“This book’s title has a double meaning,” Beckley writes. “As you turn the pages, you will see that we have approached the sexual nature of UFOs, their alien occupants, and the reproduction process of the Ultra-terrestrials with an open mind. It’s easy to laugh and guffaw upon reading reports of anal probes and those who claim that they have fathered a rather large family of star children, or who have sex with reptilians just about every Saturday night. We admit to a bit of chuckling from time to time ourselves, but this is potentially a very important aspect of UFO research that for the most part has been neglected because of what some see as its offensive nature.
“But just because something is offensive or not to your liking,” he continues, “doesn’t mean that you should ignore it altogether. The phenomenon is not going to go away. So let’s study it and let the chips fall where they may (a very trite statement, but one that immediately comes to mind).
“The second meaning, for me at least, is the fact that I sometimes feel I have been ‘screwed by the aliens.’ Though I have had three UFO sightings, written and published a gazillion books and magazines, I am still at a loss as to what precisely the UFO enigma consists of. We have close encounters, bedroom invaders, abductions, government cover-ups, a cry for disclosure and everything to the far left and the far right.
“I could have gone out and gotten a regular job, but, no, ‘they’ led me to follow them, to chat them up and to devote my life to understanding their purpose. So, in a sense, yes, I have been ‘screwed by the aliens.’ But, like with sex, it has been a pleasurable experience (for the most part).”
For good or evil, at least some aliens are interested in human sexuality and reproduction and do their work without human consent or approval. Whether or not that constitutes “rape” remains a question not easily answered. But, like Beckley says, we may be in a situation where we’re being screwed both literally and metaphorically.
