Suppose you could communicate with a visitor who was not from this place, time-space or even this dimension? What would you want to ask them? The answers probably lie in what our own response would be if we were them. This book is based on a collection of interviews I have had with a few individuals who may have actually had such an experience. The idea is that if enough of us are ready to ask the questions and gain the answers, then our collective knowledge and understanding of the "multiverse" about us can only continue to be enhanced. Sometimes the responses that you will read here are similar; often they are diametrically opposed to each other. An open but highly skeptical mind is extremely necessary if you are going to sift through the data that is presented in this book. The intent is that it should peak your curiosity to learn more about "visitors." In this way, we may be better informed and prepared, and thus in some sort of coherent shape to deal with their arrival. If you read this book, you must be well prepared to choose for yourself what you will or will not believe.

CARL JOHNSON, an employee of an aerospace company near Los Angeles, California, is driving north through the desert in the year 2125 on his way to a military base. He observes a flying saucer land in the desert. He tells a friend and fellow worker, NANCY JONES, about it and on a subsequent trip to the military base they investigate the landing site of the flying saucer. A flying saucer is standing there and the two board the ship unseen. The flying saucer lifts off with Nancy and Carl aboard and flies to the Titan moon of the planet Saturn. The people on Titan are among the descendants of 600 people who left earth from near Barstow, California in the year 2000 on two spaceships to colonize a planet in Alpha Centauri. When the colonists arrived in Alpha Centauri they established a colony which they named New Barstow. The colonists argued over politics, economics, and national origin and separated themselves into states. One of the states, New Philadelphia, engaged in a nuclear war with the central government and was forced to abandon its territory due to radioactive fall out. The Philadelphians returned to the earth's solar system in 2115 and set up a base on the Titan moon of Saturn. They established a shuttle service between Titan and earth to carry natural resources to Titan for use in constructing military spaceships that would enable them to return to Alpha Centauri and regain territory. The Philadelphians were technologically more advanced than the United States and the American government had to comply with their demands. However, the government did not notify the American people of the situation for fear that the people would panic. Nancy's fondest wish is to return to earth as soon as possible. Carl adjusts to his situation and wants to study the engines used by the spaceships so that he can use that knowledge when they return to earth. They pose as Philadelphians and Carl soon gets a job in one of the factories. He is eventually found out and Carl and Nancy are put in jail, where they find a hundred other Californians who were caught investigating the space shuttles near Barstow, California. The Philadelphians are ready in 2125 to leave Titan for New Barstow in Alpha Centauri and take along the hundred Californian prisoners. In the ensuing battle between the Philadelphians and the Barstonians, the Barstonians are victorious and put the hundred Californians in a prison on New Barstow. The Californians secretly leave the jail every day and refurbish a spaceship they find in a junk yard. They use that spaceship to return to Titan. The Californians use sleep capsules for the four year trip and the spaceship speed approaches nine tenths the speed of light. They secretly land on Titan and then use several shuttle trips to return to earth. After all one hundred Californians have returned to earth, they tell their story to the newspapers.

Since the 1950s, men and women around the world have claimed to have had contact with human-like visitors from space. This book explores how the “contactee” subculture has critiqued political, social and cultural trends in the United States, Europe and elsewhere. Not merely quaint relics of the 1950s Atomic Age, contactees have continued their messages of transformation into the 21st century. Regardless of whether these alleged contacts took the form of physical meetings or channeled paranormal psychic communications, or whether they actually happened at all, contactees have provided a consistently relevant source of commentary on this world and beyond.

After fulfilling every objective of a top secret mission to Jupiters Ganymede and now only days from home, four NASA astronauts learn from their computer systems analyst in Houston through an unauthorized channel that a bomb may be on a rendezvous course with their ship, the Copernicus. Mission Specialist Jana Novacek, the youngest astronaut ever, who has been chosen for mysterious reasons, suggests breaking security, announcing their existence to everyone over the net, and asking for help. Someone might be willing to help who unknowingly is involved in the plot against them. Cocommander Fawzshen, Prince of Rhatania, further recommends revealing their amazing discovery. Commander Jackson Medwin thinks that Janas journal is ideal for that purpose. Jana is distressed and feels her personal journal is not suitable. Commander Medwin will do anything to save his crew, this mission, and their discovery, but he decides neither to take evasive actions nor break security until they have proof that something is on a collision course with their ship. He considers a deactivated meteoroid detection program uploaded to them from Houston as insufficient proof.

When reality becomes fantastic, what literary effects will render it credible or comprehensible? To respond meaningfully to the surreality of the Holocaust, writers must produce works of moral and emotional complexity. One way they have achieved this is through elements of fantasy. Covering a range of theoretical perspectives, this collection of essays explores the use of fantastic story-telling in Holocaust literature and film. Writers such as Jane Yolen and Art Spiegelman are discussed, as well as the sci-fi television series V (1983), Stephen King's novella Apt Pupil (1982), Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth (2006) and Martin Scorsese's dark thriller Shutter Island (2010).
