Alien abductions, crafts from other worlds and/or dimensions, implants, underground bases, coverups, misinformation, tall blond men and little gray ones. Sound exciting? Sure does, but are they fantasies dreamt up in our subconscious minds or reality knocking on our wooden heads?
Take a peek into the world of UFOs spanning 1947 through 1997 with your hosts: Paul Devereux and Peter Brookesmith. And they, like I, don’t really believe despite the hordes of people “out there” who do.
So what do you get for your money in this book? Well, far as I can tell a pretty decent, though not always objective, view of the UFO mythologies through the years. This encompasses fringe groups, TV and movie and radio, and some certifiable nutjobs. The phenomena is pretty well defined now in our culture and we all know exactly what to expect.
But Peter and Paul take a different approach and try to justify their beliefs of what is really going on. How do they do this? With a lot of poking fun at the traditional “aliens from another dimension/galaxy/world” general belief system in place and introducing their takes on hallucinogenic inner-mind explanations and electromagnetic earth lights phenomena. . .
Sound a far fetched? To me it does, but we do know more about hallucinogens and electro-stimulus to the cerebral cortex than gray aliens and crashes saucers. There may be something to it - the authors think there is - or maybe they are following a wild goose as well.
Overall a good read and appears to be thoroughly researched and documented - but aren’t all people trying to make a case fulfilling those expectations. And no, I don’t have the inclination or time to track down the validity of any of the claims. I read this type of thing as mind stimulus for writing stories and novels.
Whatever the reason for the phenomena, it does exist and is a part of our culture for better or worse. Get used to it, and look to the skies - you just never know what may be up there, besides stars planets and vacuum or course.
So, if you are interested in UFOs and UFOLOGY, pick this up from the library like I did and give it a go. You may not find the answers you seek, but you may get a chuckle or two out of it....more

First off the cover of this book splashes the PH.D. after Courtney’s name, just so you know he has the credentials to validate what he speaks of . . .
Um, yeah, okay.
Now I really love these kinds of books, books filled with alien conspiracies, hidden bases and four foot tall “Greys” lurking on the periphery sampling our DNA so they too can survive.
But I like them for what they are, not what they purport to be - the truth. Courtney is selling this urban (cosmic) myth-ology stuff like it is undeniably proven facts using scientific methods.
Which takes us to remote viewing, his invention I think. With this technique our ‘subspace’ (now where have I heard that term before?) souls can observe any object, subject (maybe even verb) or point in time and space be it past, present or future.
Pretty cool stuff - but in my opinion complete poppycock but works well to verify (oye) what Courtney has discovered using this dreamed up technique.
This book is a series of sessions Courtney has done collecting all this fascinating “scientific” information about extraterrestrials, their societies, contacts with Earth’s government in the USA and their hidden agendas.
Does the X-files come to your mind too?
Courtney is a Political Scientist very much interested in societies, so why not stray off into extraterrestrial ones? So by using “remote viewing techniques” he does just this. And he reveals aliens three around us.
First are the Greys, almost pure subspace beings who have genetically manipulated themselves so far they need our stock in DNA to try and regain some balance. They are benevolent and wish to let us fulfil our own destinies even if it leads to our ruin.
Second we have the ancient Martians, very much human in appearance, so much so in fact that they are living right here among us now and will eventually move all of their subterranean population from Cydonia to Earth.
Does you neighbor seem a bit strange to you - well it could be they have recently come over from Mars so give them some slack.
Following all this.
And then the newly discovered Reptilians. Oh, no Mr. Brown - not the evil militant Reptilians. Yes, says Courtney and their plan for us is not pleasant. They are already creating human-reptilian hybrids right now and will eventually dominate the Earth and enslave us - or not.
Oh, almost forgot to mention that remote viewing also sees into other “possible” timelines and alternate worlds so it may just be that what Courtney is seeing is not “our” timeline, but a parallel one. How convenient.
I am convinced this book and “Cosmic Voyages” its predecessor are political science experiments Courtney is playing out. You know, how many book sales, how many people write him with similar beliefs, what countries snap up his ideas.
If you read this book be prepared to find out about the Reptilians cloaked base sitting between Earth and the Moon, secret undermountain bases on Earth accessible by alien ships which can pass through solid rock, Martians, alternate timelines - oh and my personal favorite - the Galactic “Federation” (hmm, another seemingly familiar word) where Buddha plays an active roll in its running - sorry Spock, you are just fiction.
I kid you not - this information is, of course, all scientifically proven through remote viewing . . . (just not sure what channel its on or how late at night you have to stay up to see it . . .)...more
For the benefit of classification I’ve set this up in both the “fantasy” and the “non-fiction” sections because, even after reading the entire 584 pagFor the benefit of classification I’ve set this up in both the “fantasy” and the “non-fiction” sections because, even after reading the entire 584 pages - I’m still not convinced one way or the other about extraterrestrials.
Timothy Good has obviously done a ton of research into the many and varied sightings of UFOS over the past several decades (up to 1988 in this book anyhow) and seems, by his closing accounts, to “believe” that we are being visited by extraterrestrials and the governments of the earth are covering up this truth.
Hmm, I say. As much as I want to believe that I simply can’t. Nothing in my personal experience leads me to conclude that beings from another planet are visiting us or sending intelligent probes to do the same. And, despite this large quantity of “evidence” (which I find suspect and circumstantial at best) presented in “Above Top Secret: The Worldwide UFO Cover Up” I just find myself not being convinced by it.
So is the book worth reading if you are interested in the UFO phenominum? I would have to say, not really, though many of the accounts are fascinating. If you must know what it is all about I’ll summerize quickly. Tons of reports gathered by Timothy through letters, interviews and Freedom of Information Act released documents. Tons of them. Did I mention tons? Which makes for a pretty dull read let me tell you despite my interest in the subject matter.
At least I didn’t find any “National Enquirer” references in the notes section.
But, tons, does not equate to “truth” in my opinion. If I tell you there are five lights over and over and over and over again, when in fact there are only four lights, chances are that over time through repetition and a sincere conviction on my part - you will come to believe that there are indeed five lights . . .
Yes, using a Science Fiction reference to make my point, but I think it is valid here.
So I let this book stand as “fantasy” and “non-fiction” and leave the believing up to the individual.
My personal opinion of the whole matter - the UFO phenominum is just a part of the program of the Matrix . . .
