    This is an interesting journalistic investigation into the surrounding biographical context around bestselling horror author turned UFO contactee Whitley Strieber which collects much of the information surrounding his life that isn't readily available from Strieber's own booksThe interesting biographical information includes for example the fact that Strieber was obsessed with spaceflight and extraterrestrial life as a child Author Ed Conroy also documents several mysterious occurrences from Strieber's childhood in the overall area he lived in that weren't interpreted as close encounters at the time but probably would be if they happened today More damning of Strieber's accuracy as a narrator however is what the other reviewer noted about Strieber claiming to have been present at a mass shooting on a university campus he probably wasn't In the meantime of course Strieber has added and layers to his UFO contact experiences that become and outlandish even to other contacteesThe author of his book Ed Conroy also spends much time on noting that supposed extraterrestrial contact experiences like Strieber's follow the same templates as shamanic journeys and fairy stories as well as religious experiences wherein angels or demons are encountered Compare and contrast also the facial physiognomy of the Visitors with how elves are typically depicted in modern epic fantasy fiction like the Warhammer roleplaying game Long thin faces with low foreheads slanted eyes high cheekbones small noses and pointed sharp chins The Vinca culture of Bronze Age Eastern Europe also depicted their deities with that physical appearance now that we are at itThis becomes relevant to Strieber's case in light of his feud with ufologist Budd Hopkins who also dedicated his life to studying the alien abduction phenomenon Hopkins believes the Visitors literally are other planets' euivalents to Josef Mengele and Shirô Ishii but Strieber thinks they're supernatural spirit guide entities whom pre modern cultures knew as angels demons elves and whatnot I was genuinely surprised at learning that Communion was uite controversial in ufological circles when it first was published not just because it was the work of a long time popular horror novelist which instantly made science fiction author Samuel Delany suspect the contact experiences were some elaborate publicity stunt on Strieber's part but also for two other reasons One being Strieber being absolutely convinced in the reality of his Visitor experiences the other being him thinking they're not spacefarers from other planets but rather the same spirit guide entities shamans meet on their vision uests Which would alienate both the skeptics and the nuts and bolts Extraterrestrial Hypothesis crowdAnd that is where Conroy loses me He seems to go all in on using Whitley Strieber's experiences as an example of how alien contact stories are basically the same phenomenon as stories of angels and demons and Conroy apparently buys Strieber's belief there are literal existing entities who have presented themselves as gods demons fairies or aliens depending on the culture of the humans they interact with Some of Strieber's attempts at fitting his various experiences into one larger narrative can get pretty damn loopy hence my surprise at Conroy not being critical of them There's lots of interesting investigative work here but also much of the selectively applied skepticism that aggravates me and about the unorthodox corners of ufology and other paranormal subcultures

    A very good companion to Communion A very good example of journalism I haven't read the book in over ten years but I think this was where I learned of Strieber's apparent brain abnormality and his inability to determine where he was on a particularly significant historic day Was he on campus the day the clocktower shooter took his shots or not because Strieber has said he both was and wasn't there His inability to differntiate truth from imagined truth is interesting to say the least This raised many uestions on my part but they were also weaved with curiosity regarding whether or not this potential brain defect led to Strieber being such a good writer and creator of tales in the first place
