Genre(s): UFOs Paranormal Speculative Science


With the end game in Vietnam and the turpitudes of Watergate in the background, the major topic of this second volume in the journals of Jacques Vallee is paranormal research. Vallee relates his behind-the-scenes experiences in California during the 1970s as the Human Potential Movement emerged, the Internet developed, and parapsychology secretly entered the physics laboratory. And all the while, as Vallee continued his examination of UFO encounters, the links to older mysteries became increasingly clear.

About the Author:

JACQUES VALLEE holds a master’s degree in astrophysics and a PhD in computer science. The subject of UFOs first attracted his attention as an astronomer in Paris. He subsequently became a close associate of Project Blue Book’s J. Allen Hynek and has written several books on the UFO enigma. He is presently a venture capitalist living in San Francisco.
