I'm not sure how many UFO books have been written since then, but I'd guess that it's well over Here, in chronological order, are 10 that I can recommend as either informative, entertaining, puzzling or all three at once. Ruppelt documents shifting Air Force attitudes to the phenomenon, which ranged from aggressive denial to apparent endorsement of alien visitation in an infamous Life magazine article. In a revised edition, published in , Ruppelt was more dismissive of the subject.

He died the same year, aged A charming glimpse into the early days of the UFO culture, when the lines between spiritualism, occultism and ufology were largely indistinguishable. The Reeves travelled the US in search of "the Saucerers", meeting many key figures of the time before making contact with real Space People via the wonders of Outer Space Communication OSC and a portable tape recorder.

Many important questions are answered: How do we look to the space people? Do they believe in Jesus Christ? Is this civilisation ending? It was only natural that the Swiss mystic and philosopher-shrink, fascinated by anomalous experiences, should turn his attention to the UFO mystery.

Considering UFOs as a "visionary rumour" and a manifestation of the mythic unconscious, Jung compares the perfect circle of the flying disc to the mandala, notes the dreamlike impossibility of many reports and presciently recognises the deep spiritual pull that the UFO would exert over the next half century. He's regarded as a saint in UFO circles, largely for this book, a sober yet sympathetic overview of the UFO problem that excoriates the US Air Force for their failure to treat the phenomenon seriously.

Hynek devised the "Close Encounters" system for categorising UFO sightings, and has a cameo during the cosmic disco climax of Spielberg's blockbusting film that's him with the pipe looking like Colonel Sanders. Merging unconscious deceptions with deliberate fictions, many of the wilder UFO books would have even the most intrepid postmodernists cowering behind the sofa. Keel, however, was a two-fisted trickster who knew exactly what he was doing and this reads like Thomas Pynchon crossed with Philip K Dick channelling HP Lovecraft.

In the late s Point Pleasant, West Virginia was plagued by bizarre entities, UFO sightings and robotic, jelly-fixated Men in Black; Keel investigated only to find himself in too deep and the town doomed to real-life disaster. An intriguing, disconcerting book from one of the field's most progressive thinkers. Whitley Strieber's Communion is one of the 20th century's great literary mysteries and Conroy's spinoff is just as curious.

A hard-nosed investigative journalist, Conroy examined Strieber's alleged alien abduction experiences and odd life story while also researching the history of UFOs and its parallels in folkloric encounter narratives.

In a testament to the power of UFOria and the allure of the Other, by the end of the book he's being buzzed by shape-shifting helicopters and wondering whether he too has had contact with the Visitors. One of at least 18 hardback volumes of anomalies collected by this modern-day Charles Fort.

Ball lightning miniature, giant, black, object-penetrating and ordinary , bead lightning, lightning from clear skies, pillars of light, glowing owls, luminous bubbles, oceanic light wheels, earthquake lights, marsh gas, unusual auroras, glowing fogs. And that's just for starters. I love this book. Hansen, a former professional laboratory parapsychologist, provides illumination, insight and perspective on the wider paranormal research field, UFOs included.

Drawing on folklore, anthropology, literary theory and sociology, Hansen points out the integral, destabilising role of Trickster archetypes in human society. While dwelling predominantly amongst its esoteric fringes, the Trickster can also be seen lurking in the corridors of political, military and corporate power. A rock-solid history of the UFO phenomenon in Britain by two of our most reliable and indefatigable researchers. Clarke and Roberts work from interviews and official documentation detailing everything from genuine aerial mysteries during the second world war investigated for the RAF by the Goon Show's Michael Bentine to the cold war follies of 's Rendlesham Forest incident.
