Travels in the weid world of high strangeness, very apt indeed, and what could be stranger than aliens, other than the humans who hunt for them. Having been fascinated with dinosaurs as a kid, it was perhaps only natural that Martin Plowman would go on to take a phd in Ufology and become a Ufology Ologist. In his chronicle of searching for the truth, or as near as damnit, Plowman spent seven years travelling high and low, although probably not as high as he'd have liked, the Andean plateau aside.
Nonetheless in his engrossing tale of extraterrestrial existentialism, Plowman leaves no rock unturned and no stairway to heaven unclimbed. In what could best be described as a travelogue with a definative difference Plowman evokes shades of Theroux and Bryson co-piloting a flying train, while remaining ever alert to the imminent danger of abduction by publishers. 'The UFO Diaries' is a ripping (tripping) tale of insanity, logical argument, foodstands and how the Americas came to be conquered – which was after all, by aliens. Most likely in years to come 'The UFO Diaries' will be available in many different languages on many different inter-galactic bookstands, and it deserves no less. A must for those with the desire to be simultaneously probed and propositioned.
