The Roswell Legacy

Review by Jerry Sievers          

This book was a great disappointment to me. Not just because of the delay in publication- 18 months, but because the UFO store in Baker, Ohio took my money and never (repeat) never sent me my copy. I finally received it as a gift from my sister.

There absolutely no new revelations in it. Its only saving grace, for me was the detached description of what the Mogul project system look like. And the blow by blow description of  the "Dew Line" UFO flaps and their consequences.

Above Top Secret
By Timothy Good

Review by Jerry Sievers

This weighty tome (592 pages including notes and appendix's) is an attempt to present a broad overview of the modern history of Ufology. Mr. Good's engaging style makes this a very easy read even though he is covering a subject that most Ufologists know well. There are a few surprises none the less. His coverage of early radar cases in England is fairly extensive and his appendix and notes are exhaustive and exhausting. A well written book and worth reading.

Alien Contact
By Timothy Good

Review by Jerry Sievers

This slim volume takes up where Mr. Good's previous title 'Above Top Secret' leaves off. Mr. Good is an excellent researcher and an even better writer. He builds his case for the reality of UFO's slowly but surely until you, the reader, are thoroughly convinced of their existence. Chapter 10 titled Cosmic Journey was a complete surprised. It chronicles his involvement in something called 'The Cosmic Journey Project'. He was contacted by a Robert Kirchgesser, the Director of a Special Development Group associated with the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey International, a huge entertainment corporation ran by Kenneth Feld Productions. Mr. Kirchgesser mentioned that one of his colleagues had been present during the 1989 Mutual UFO Network's symposium and had heard Mr. Good's presentation. He stated "our corporation is doing extensive research on the subject. He wrote "we are involved in preparing an International tour presentation which  will include accurate information as well as be entertaining. He wanted to meet with Mr. Good and discuss the UFO cover-up.

This led to meetings at the Pentagon and NASA. Mr. Good's title of 'Official Consultant on UFO Research'. His consecrated involvement with all of this never came to fruitation but is a fascinating inside look at how big business and government work hand-in-hand. All-in-all a very good book and highly recommended.

This action adventure SF novel also features some classic character types: Inventors, Engineers, Warring motorcycle gangs, local constables.  It has more of a paranormal theme with the least character developing a "Wild Talent" that enables him to escape the bad guys and coincidentally save his lady love.  He incorporates this into a mechanical device that calls up a special features on his new motor bike. Action adventure and a easy read.
