Haunted Skies, Volume 8 (1980) Haunted Skies, Volume 8 (1980) is the beginning of a new era for the ground-breaking unique series, compiled by former West Midlands Police Officer John Hanson and partner Dawn Holloway, who now publish their own books under the Haunted Skies publishing banner. This volume of Haunted Skies covers the period of 1980 and is in colour. The first part, January to November 1980, includes an investigation into the mysterious death of Zygmund Adamski - a coal miner, who was found deceased at Todmorden railway yard, Police Constable Alan Godfrey's UFO sighting, Cumbrian man Mario Luisi's close encounter with a landed UFO and its occupants, and much more. The second part contains an appraisal of the UFO events which took place in Rendlesham Forest, at the end of December 1980, and includes various interviews held with both British, civilian and USAF Airmen, as to what took place. In respect of this matter the authors consulted, on many occasions, with Dot Street, Brenda Butler, and Colonel Charles Halt. In addition to this, the authors present various examples of what may well be perceived as paranormal phenomena, which is still taking place in the forest to this present day. Whether there is a connection, they cannot say. The authors point out that the majority of the information contained within their books is unlikely to be found in declassified UFO files, catalogued in the Public Records Office. They maintain the sightings obtained from personal interviews with many of the UFO witnesses [forming part of the British social history] offer a unique opportunity to evaluate the extent of what really took place, rather than relying on the hitherto annual release of low grade UFO reports, many of which were to became the target of considerable humour by the media. Despite ridicule and scepticism constantly being aimed at the subject matter, by those who claim there is very little evidence of this phenomena, evidence to the contrary is offered.

Volume 11 contains over 750 pages with a foreword written by retired USAF Colonel Charles Halt - then the Deputy Base Commander of RAF Woodridge - during the now famous UFO incident that has attracted worldwide attention, which took place in late December 1980. Like its predecessors Volumes 8, 9, and 10, it is also in colour but is even larger in pagination, making it excellent value for money. It continues with further chronological reports of UFO activity over Great Britain, USA, Australia, New Zealand and Tasmania, for the period 1989-1990. As with the former Volumes, published by the authors, this has been painstakingly and meticulously prepared from over 20 years research. It is priced at 25, which is good value taking into consideration the earlier books (Volumes 1-6, approximately 320 pages in black and white, sold at 14.99). John Hanson and Dawn Holloway, with Brenda Butler, have accumulated a vast amount of information over the years, including material from the late Essex UFO researcher Ron West, which identifies the presence of what has become labelled as appearances of the 'Triangular UFO', sighted over Belgium and Europe towards the end of the 1980s and, on occasion, chased by Air Force Jets. They will show that previously unpublished accounts of a 'wave' of similar sightings around the Essex area are now being brought to the attention of the public, who would not have been aware of how prolific sightings were during that period. Disappointingly, recent attempts to attract the attention of the Essex newspapers and media have been unsuccessful. The authors contend than nothing should be left out, as these books form part of our social history. It is their wish, at great personal expense to themselves, that these unique books will endure and provide future historians of the UFO subject an opportunity to see exactly what took place, rather than fading from history. It also includes an examination of UFO reports covering the period of 1963-1964, including some sightings from the archives of Project Blue Book for the first time. In addition, the Volume outlines the valuable commitment made by the researchers themselves and their efforts to preserve what forms part of our important social history, rather than relying on other dubious sources of information. Unfortunately, despite their greatest efforts, the authors have been unable to secure any reviews of their work by any of the National newspapers, although having sent many books to them. The authors point out that very few of the UFO sighting reports published in the Haunted Skies books will be found in any declassified MOD files."

Dark Skies provides the first comprehensive and balanced assessment of the space enterprise, past, present and future. It demolishes widely-held optimistic assumptions about the desirability of many major space activities, actual and prospective. Most consequentially, the hiding-in-plain-sight use of outer space as a corridor for long-range bombardment has increased the probability of catastrophic nuclear war. Contrary to the widespread claim thatsustainable colonies on other celestial bodies are necessary for human survival from large-scale disasters on Earth, Dark Skies shows that colonization itself poses many severe threats and should be avoided. Instead an Earth-oriented space program should be pursued.

Haunted Victory: The American Crusade to Destroy Saddam and Impose Democracy on Iraq explores the dynamic trajectory of beliefs, actions, and their consequences in what will forever be debated as among the most controversial and costly operations in U.S. history in terms of security, power, wealth, and honor. While many others have written about the Iraq War, William Nester unveils the moral dilemmas that entangled the George W. Bush administration and the American public through each stage of planning, selling, fighting, and attempting to end the Iraq War. He includes vivid revelations of the administration’s internal tugs-of-war over whether to invade Iraq and then how to fight the war. Nester pulls no punches and discloses who deserves credit for what went right and who deserves condemnation for what went wrong. In his engaging style, Nester has written a page-turner. General readers, students, and experts alike will eagerly welcome Haunted Victory for its concise and comprehensive analysis of the key facets of the Iraq War.
