This is not a tale of wrinkled gray aliens with big heads who want to cross breed with the human race and reveal to us the meaning of life. It is a seminal work of UFO literature. Written in the wake of the UFO flap of the mid-1960s, it is a serious book - an attempt by a mainstream journalist to reach a conclusion about the UFO phenomenon. John G.

In 1965 journalist Fuller, having heard of a rash of UFO sightings in New Hampshire, travelled there to interview witnesses and made a sighting himself. Interestingly, these sightings tended, he noted, to be associated with electric transmission lines. More interestingly, there was a possibly significant association between the times of these sightings near the lines and the great blackout which covered much of the northeast of the United States.
