Saucers by Jim Keith

Happy Halloween! The best type of horror is the nonfiction conspiracy story. Keith has a way of tapping into people's greatest fears while making it seem so real. Backing all the conspiracy theories with seemingly logical patterns, it makes a person ask, "Is the CIA amongst us!"

Wondrous story it is tricky to review without being a spoiler. However, upon examining the book and later essay he posses logical explanations; except, people's inability to sight an Air Traffic Tower or Weather Balloon. As a teen I remember seeing a red light hovering in the night sky. It was flashing red. Waiting for it to move, approaching the Salt Palace it became clear it was an Air Traffic Tower. They mark the tops of mountains so planes don't crash when approaching the Salt Lake City Airport.

Another experience, rare indeed, was an encounter with a slowly moving object in the night sky. I have never seen anything like the various lights and methodical behavior; except, for a picture of a weather balloon on television. Apparently, weather balloons float high enough they are rarely visible to the human eye, floating in heavens with Doppler.

Keith is an excellent writer though accepting his conspiracy theory as a comical misunderstanding of the facts. He posses interesting questions related to people's perception and what qualifies as reality. There is a comparison between existence and reality. Walls and bricks exist, yet the interpretation of their existence is reality.

Keith is a noted conspiracy author who dove into understanding the methodology of mind-control. Born 1949, he dyed in 1999 the same year this book was released. The biography by Kenn Thomas also sites the "connection" of finding clostridium bacteria on cattle mutilations and Keith's knee, which was related to his untimely death.

Creepy on several levels, the madness of "Saucers" is for an adult audience. He does not swear or use sexual ploys. The level of scrutiny may plays mind-games with the reader. That is why it is fun to read. Horror buffs, philosophers, psychologists and theologians will enjoy the book. He includes several religious references to support his thoughts, yet he forgot the other obvious conclusion. Plants are intelligent beings. Several people observe conversations amongst tress through shaking leaves. Have they evolved to empathic communication, able to implant hallucinations to bridge the language barrier? Think about it "implant" and "I'm plant."
