Antonio Paris: 9AM
Ufology for the 21st Century
Evidence of extraterrestrial life remains elusive as ever. The lack of physical and scientific proof, beyond a reasonable doubt, has pushed UFOs to be regarded along with the Loch Ness Monster, the chupacabra, and leprechauns. This unfortunate demise is a direct result of a once-worthy subject that was hijacked by a convergence of armchair UFO investigators, conspiracy theorists, hoaxers, and cheesy photos of alleged extraterrestrials or flying saucers. Antonio’s book, in its strictest sense, provides the reader insight into the UFO investigative process, synopses of several UFO investigations completed, an analysis of UFO phenomena, and the author’s vision for reviving Ufology for the 21st Century.

Derrel Sims 115PM
Alien History, our Evidence.
Derrel Sims is a licensed private investigator and the world’s leading expert on alien abductions. In his 40 years of field research, he has drawn on all his investigative, psychological and forensic training to track down evidence of alien activity. At the heart of Sims’ work is a focus on physical evidence and its forensic analysis. He treats abduction cases like crime scenes, an approach that led to his groundbreaking discoveries of alien implants and alien fluoresence (a kind of indelible “fingerprint” that the alien leaves behind on an abductee or their surroundings.)
As a former military police officer and CIA operative, Sims has a unique insight to the alien organization which he believes functions similarly to an intelligence agency. He suspects that the alien uses similar covert techniques to spy on and manipulate humankind, and just as military/intel operatives might try to brainwash a captured spy or POW, Derrel believes the alien is able to alter an abductee’s perception of their experience. Over the years, he’s put to use his many hypnotherapy certifications to unravel this alien mind control, and says he’s even trained his own Manchurian candidates as warriors in the alien resistance.
Nick Redfern 300PM
MONSTER FILES: STRANGE CREATURES AND THE GOVERNMENT
Does the Pentagon have the body of Bigfoot on ice? What is the military hiding from us about lake monsters? What is the link between the CIA and the Abominable Snowman? Why is there a British government file on Sea Serpents? What do the Russians know about animal ESP? Despite what your parents might have told you when you were a child, monsters, creepy creatures, and terrifying beasts really do exist. And our governments know all about them.
