A Rocket at Roswell?

Just when you thought that there couldn’t be another aspect to the controversy of what did - or did not - happen at Roswell, New Mexico in July 1947, along comes this…

As I state in the article, in part:

“Up until now, however, the story I am about to relate has remained curiously absent from the ufological research field. Why, I do not know; since those who had an awareness of it all those years ago could have easily spilled the beans back then.

“Many readers of this post will be very surprised to learn that, around a decade ago, select portions of a draft-document of questionable origins were made available to a number of UFO researchers across the United States - a document supposedly having been written by (and 'leaked' by) a CIA source known as the 'Blue Boy.' I was not one of those researchers; however, a copy of the draft was made available to me six or seven years ago.

“Highly dubious of its validity, however, I have not highlighted it until now.”

Japan-Roswell Revelations?

From today's Anomalist:

Roswell Whistleblower: The Real Story, From The Documents Above Top Secret. Former Department of Defense research librarian, Douglas Dietrich, provides information gained from handling top-secret documents about the incident in Roswell, NM. His account seems to confirm the rumors that the government was testing acquired WWII technology in New Mexico. Could Nick Refern's thesis about Roswell, which he presented in Body Snatchers in the Desert, be correct after all? Dietrich can be seen in many other YouTube videos, beginning with Douglas Dietrich Responds To ATS comments! MUST SEE!!! part 1/12.

Sunshine Secrets

Over at The Anomalist today:

Body Snatching of the Documented Kind The UFO Reality. Nick Redfern replies to the critics who said there no evidence to support the notion, which was presented in his book Body Snatchers in the Desert, that diabolical human-experimentation was the cause of the Roswell controversy and that government and military agencies would never engage in - or sanction - such terrible actions. His evidence, not directly allied with the events described in his book, is the history and activities of Project Sunshine, a horrifying example of the way human beings and bodies were experimented upon and utilized during the Cold War.

Roswell: A Valid Question

Over at The UFO Iconoclasts, the RRR Group asks a valid question: if the debris, and possibly bodies and craft, recovered outside of Roswell, New Mexico in the summer of 1947 had extra-terrestrial origins, then why did the aliens’ comrades fail to attempt to recover the priceless materials before elements of the U.S. military appeared on the scene?

Of course, if ET did crash, then a number of possibilities do spring to mind:

1. The aliens wanted to introduce themselves to us in the form of a staged-crash, and as vulnerable, mortal beings, to whom we could possibly relate, and without being confronted by infinitely advanced intelligences.

2. The event was the result of some “Trojan Horse” scenario - also staged by the other-worldly ones, but for more sinister purposes - such as attempting to expose us to alien viruses, but in a seemingly innocent and accidental fashion?

3. The aliens, far away from home, may not actually have been too far in advance of us - perhaps a century or so - and simply didn’t have the adequate resources and reserves at-hand to engage in a hasty retrieval.

There is another theory: aliens didn’t try and recover the Roswell wreckage because…what happened at Roswell didn’t involve aliens…

Body Snatchers in Japan

For those who may be interested, a Japanese edition of my Body Snatchers in the Desert book has just been published. It will be interesting to see if this results in any more data coming forward on this particular aspect of the Roswell affair...

For more data on this edition, click here.

Memory Metal & Roswell

Some of you may have been following the debate/postings over at Rich Reynolds’ UFO Iconoclast(s) on the latest Roswell revelations relating to the so-called “Memory Metal;” Nitinol; and Battelle.

Rich has just posted a new article from me that offers my thoughts and opinions on the Nitinol/”Memory Metal” saga, and which can be found right here.

The Ramey Memo

There's a lively debate going on over at Kevin Randle's A Different Perspective blog on the "Ramey Memo" controversy - the "Comments" section of which has a discussion of some aspects of Body Snatchers.

Body Snatchers Comments

Tony Bragalia has a new post over at UFO Iconoclasts that delves into the whole Nazi UFO angle of Ufology, and which is in part focused on my Body Snatchers in the Desert book. Tony's posting (like those of so many within Ufology!) is not supportive of the Unit 731-Roswell connection.

Body Snatchers: A New Interview

A couple of days ago Greg Taylor of The Daily Grail interviewed me about my research into Roswell, and specifically the data contained in my Body Snatchers in the Desert book, and the brand new data that has surfaced on this aspect of Roswell since the book first surfaced four years ago.

We get into a lot of areas, including:

1. New documents I have uncovered that demonstrate a Lincoln County, New Mexico/Unit 731 link;

2. The implications for Ufology if Roswell collapses (as a UFO event, at least);

3. The response to my book when it was published;

4. The possibility of a psy-op involvement, and much more.

Here's the link to the complete article; and as a taster, here's a brief extract below:

"I think the new data - such as that relating to official documents concerning Unit 731 and Japanese balloon-flights in not just New Mexico, but at Lincoln County, NM, too - is very important, and for several reasons. One: it adds to the general scenario given to me half a decade or more ago. And, two: who could have predicted back in 2005 that official files with a specific Unit 731/Lincoln County link would surface several years later? For me at least, that adds weight to the claims of a Japanese connection to Roswell."

Roswell: A Quest for the Truth

Right now, I'm reading a very interesting - and very personalized - book on the events of July 1947: Roswell - A Quest for the Truth, written by John A. Price.

I had actually overlooked the book when it was published back in 1997 (it was recently brought to my attention by a fellow-researcher); however, reading it now reveals some intriguing data that may be of relevance to that which is contained in my own Body Snatchers in the Desert.

For example, on pages 31-32 of the book, Price recalls how, in 1978, and while working as a roofer at Hingerman (a small town southeast of Roswell), he witnessed at one particular home several unusual-looking, deformed children.

In Price's own words, they were around "four and one-half feet tall," "had larger heads;" and "were completely hairless." Also: "...their noses and ears were very small."

Interestingly, he added: "They were the closest I've ever seen who looked alien to me. I knew they were not."

Further on in the book (in a chapter specifically titled Was it Ours?), Price quotes from the letter of a man who advised him that "...the aliens I was looking for were at Fort Stanton."

Fort Stanton, as I have noted previously at this blog - and as I detail in my brand-new Darklore article on Roswell for Greg Taylor - was home during the Second World War to Japanese individuals and, later to physically-handicapped people, too.

The letter-writer added to Price that with respect to Fort Stanton: "...There were some pretty deformed young men there...mongoloid large heads, small ears, pin heads who could function and had shrill voices. They were supposed to be of incest, but from their looks - Outa-space."

Is Price's collective data on this matter of relevance to the data contained within the pages of Body Snatchers in the Desert? Those who support an other-worldly scenario for Roswell would, of course, say "No!"

However, I'm inclined to ask: what are the chances of aliens from some far-off world (with large heads, small ears, and dwarfish bodies) turning up in the same location as human-beings seemingly exhibiting similar characteristics?

Personally, I'd say the chances are slim to zero...

Roswell in Darklore

The new volume of Greg Taylor's Darklore is now available and includes a chapter from me that greatly expands upon the data published in my controversial book, Body Snatchers in the Desert.

Secret Japanese balloon flights; FOIA documents linking Japan's notorious Unit 731 with disturbing events at "Roswell-Central" - Lincoln County, New Mexico; and official files concerning dwarfs used in radiation experiments in the summer of 1947, are just the tip of a large and ever-growing iceberg.

And, here's Greg himself to tell you more:

"Forget that other announcement about an impending book by Dan Whatisname - I've got the goods for you, and you can have it now. That's right, Darklore Volume 3 is now available for sale!

"Hidden history, the paranormal and Forteana, all packed into 316 fascinating pages of fun. As with previous releases, DL3 is available in paperback format, or as a limited edition hardcover, restricted to just 333 copies, for all the collectors out there."

Amazon US Limited Edition Hardcover

Amazon US Paperback

Amazon UK Limited Edition Hardcover

Amazon UK Paperback

"Here's a sampling of the kick-ass content in Volume 3:

"Nick Redfern has some groundbreaking revelations about the Roswell mystery, which suggest that what happened in New Mexico was completely human, and rather nasty to boot. This one is going to cause plenty of controversy!

"Robert Bauval investigates the missing sarcophagus of the Egyptian pharaoh Menkaure.

"Mike Jay takes a look at how the world's most famous fictional detective, Sherlock Holmes, had quite a raging cocaine habit.

"Robert Schoch finds a sacred Egyptian locale which may have provided the setting for the Biblical tale of Moses upon the mountain.

"Theo Paijmans examines the occult roots of Nazi technology.

"Greg Taylor goes in search of near-death experiences, before they were known to the general public.

"The Emperor looks at what may be the greatest sci-fi tale ever told: The Philadelphia Experiment.

"Adam Gorightly digs deep into sordid tales of sex, drugs and UFOs.

"Greg Bishop profiles the 'Magus of Delaware', Mario Pazzaglini.

"Geoff Falla finds interesting connections between earthquakes and meteor reports.

"Blair MacKenzie Blake opens his rare-book collection to give us all a glimpse into the strange circumstances surrounding the legendary 'Varo Edition' of UFO investigator M.K. Jessup's book The Case for the UFO.

"Philip Coppens traces the forgotten (or is that hidden?!) traditions surrounding the star Canopus.

"Michael Tymn tells a tale of archaeology from beyond the grave.

"Neil Arnold goes in search of Dutch monsters in his article 'Neverland in the Netherlands'.

"Once again, it's a great mix of subjects, from some of the best researchers and writers in the field. I'll be posting some free content from DL3 later in the week, just in case you're not convinced by the above.

"I really appreciate the support everyone has shown for Darklore so far (Volume 1 has now sold around 1500 copies), and I'm sure that Volume 3 will give you plenty of enjoyment. Each release we're aiming to be bigger and better, so please don't hesitate to send feedback - good or bad - on what you think of the anthology.

"Lastly, for those who think the cover image is pretty sweet, I'll be posting some desktop wallpaper versions tomorrow for downloading.

"Let's see if we can give that Brown fellow a run for his money in the Amazon rankings (hey, I can dream can't I?)...."

Roswell in "Paranoia"

The latest issue of Paranoia magazine (issue 50, Spring 2009) includes an interesting article from researcher Kathy Kasten titled Demystifying the Myth Called Roswell, and which states in part:

"My research has uncovered the fact that the American Government was testing many different types of aircraft at the time of the Roswell crash; some of it for the purpose of forming the basis for a future space program, and perhaps even one that involved American-Japanese ex-internees from a New Mexico secret detention camp."

Check it out for yet another highly intriguing lead linking Roswell with Japan...

Mac on Body Snatchers

Mac Tonnies comments on my Body Snatchers in the Desert book:

"The events at Roswell in the summer of 1947 -- dawn of the modern era of UFO sightings -- constitute a daunting mystery that has come to adopt the trappings of myth. While some evidence suggests a nonhuman presence in the New Mexico desert, alternative hypotheses abound. Nick Redfern's Body Snatchers in the Desert, a disturbing book that re-examines the case in light of the military secrecy prevalent at the time of the crash, posits that the supposed 'alien' bodies were in fact those of unwitting Japanese test subjects who perished in an aerospace mishap. Although subjected to much criticism (mostly from within the UFO community), Redfern's hypothesis has yet to evaporate. Even if it ultimately fails to explain the eponymous 'Roswell incident,' it might lead to a broadened understanding of the military's role in the American Southwest at the beginning of the Cold War."

Uncanny Roswell

Here’s a new book to which I have contributed two chapters: Uncanny Encounters: Roswell.

The book has an interesting concept: while my contributions are specifically on what we know (or think we know!) about Roswell in the world of fact, the other authors have all penned sci-fi/fantasy fiction stories borne out of the Roswell legend.

As the publisher states:

“Where Fact Meets Fiction. Join our panel of award winning authors as they explore the Roswell crash both historically and through the lens of science fiction & fantasy. History by noted researcher Nick Redfern plus stories by Robert E. Vardeman, Jean Rabe, and Stephen D. Sullivan. Believer or skeptic, this book is sure to provide new insights on the most famous UFO incident in history!”

Here’s the link if you want to buy your own copy.
