the ETH, however, is hard to square with :
the tiny amount of attention it was given in
either military circles or the writings of the
leaders of the UFO movement.
The true heart of the work is a passionate
attack on the work of John Keel and
Jacques Vallee. Keel gets put down as a rad-
ical heretic - crude, pulpish, anti-intellec-
tual, and from a recognizable tradition of
crank literature. Evidently he is not refer-
ring to ETH advocacy literature as anyone
exposed to the pulpish excesses of Keyhoe
might first be excused to suspect, but rather
the occultic sphere of Meade Layne and
Richard Shaver. The author plays up certain
passages in Keel's writings to argue he was
more-or-less a self-confessed demonologist.
This interest in demons is then chronicled in
Keel's intellectual parents, siblings, and m i n cl
bastard offspring. The author finds Keel's
influence so pervasive that the ETH was
largely marginalized in the writings of ufol-

arms. At the same time her dog acted strange and
tried to hide under the seat. Her eyes bothered her
for three days after the event.

• On August 27, 1979, a police officer on patrol in

Marshall County, Minnesota, spotted a light over the
road. At first he thought it was a low-flying air-
craft. Suddenly, the light rushed his car and dam-
aged it. The last thing he remembered before losing
consciousness was the breaking of glass. About 40
minutes later he regained consciousness and ra-
dioed for help. The car was damaged and in the
ditch, with the red engine light on. His eyes hurt so
much he could barely see.

• On September 10, 1981, a young woman was walk-
ing up the steps of her parent's home in Weston
Mill Hill, England, when she saw a massive craft
with pink, purple, and white lights. The shell of the
craft was metallic gray. As she reached for the door
a lime green beam came down and hit her hand. She
was frozen in place - paralyzed. When the beam re-
tracted she could move again. After the event she
had a mark appear on her hand where the beam hit.

• On December 24, 1989, a pilot was flying an L-29

jet aircraft over Chelyabinsk, Siberia when he en-
countered a dark gray, cigar-shaped object. He first
spotted the object about 500 meters below his plane
and maneuvered around to see it better. The total
time of the sighting was eight minutes and twenty
seconds. He was looking at the object through the
transparent canopy for about four minutes. After
he landed he noticed that his face was becoming
coated with a red crust of soft skin that felt sensitive
to the touch. Within a day, the skin thickened into a
soft crust-like material that covered the parts of his
face not covered by his flying helmet.

• On February 4, 1990, a woman driving home from

work to Manorville, Long Island encountered a
large luminous oval-shaped object. It was flying at
treetop level and pacing her car. The light emitted
from the object was so bright that she had to squint
to be able to see the road. She could feel the heat
from the object through the windshield of her car.
The object was silent and its surface appeared to be
smooth. y
