KIRKUS REVIEW

Here are the supposedly ""true"" facts behind all the furor about the flying saucers reports that have been sweeping the country for the past three years or so. Mr. Scully, who writes in a highly colloquial style, presents some exceedingly startling ""information"" in a chip-on-the-shoulder manner--the chip being directed against the armed forces, the Pentagon, high brass, etc. for their supposed and needless (in Mr. Scully's opinion) suppression of ""facts"". The whole thing boils down to this: the flying saucers are space ships from the planet Venus--operated by magnetic force. This latter fact is why so many have been seen and some even found in the magnetic fault zones of western United States. Dead crews of small men--about 3 1/2 feet in height--have been found in the grounded disks and have been turned over to Army medical experts. This rather sensational book presents some provocative questions which a more scholarly book will perhaps answer more definitely and in a more carfully substantiated manner.
