D. B. Cooper and Flight 305: Reexamining the Hijacking and Disappearance

Author: Robert H. Edwards

The only unsolved act of air piracy in US history from the perspective of a mathematician and pilot.

On November 24, 1971, a polite, nondescript, and dark-complexioned man calling himself “Dan Cooper” hijacked Northwest Airlines Flight 305, Boeing 727, between Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington. At Seattle International Airport, he demanded and received $200,000 and four parachutes, released the passengers, and ordered the crew to take him to Mexico. Somewhere along the way, he jumped. He was never found or identified. Forty-five years later, the FBI gave up the hunt. To show where and how the FBO could resume the search and possibly find out at last who “D. B. Cooper” really was, this book utilizes:

  • Previously unexamined data and original-source documents
  • Using statistics, aeronautics, and meteorology

Author Bob Edwards is an economist and a contractor in economic, demographic, and market research. He holds a private pilot’s license and has experience in parachuting, giving him a unique perspective in the possibilities of the D. B. Cooper case.

The Holy Water Incident: The True Story of a Daughter’s Possession and Exorcism

Author: William Dorian

From an Innocent Teenage Life …

… To a Nightmare of Torment and Pain

William Dorian and his daughter Brittany learned the hard way that demonic possession is very real. This captivating book tells the shocking story of Brittany’s possession that began at age fifteen, recounting the overwhelming trauma that evil entities can wreak on a family’s quiet life. The Holy Water Incident reveals the heartache, frustration, and sheer terror that results when the family receives a cold shoulder from the local religious authorities and when the medical establishment’s only solution is confinement in a psychiatric unit.

Beginning with an innocent session with a spirit communication board and building in intensity to the point where multiple demons take hold of an innocent teenager’s life, this story shines a light on the traumatic wounds a possession can inflict … and the extreme measures a family will take to save their daughter from evil entities that are hell-bent on chaos and destruction.

The Nixon-Gleason Alien encounter: An Investigation into Nixon’s Secret Airbase Meetings to View Extraterrestrials

Author: Paul Blake Smith

“After several decades of research, I’m convinced President Eisenhower’s administration established several extremely secret programs related to the ET presence. Throughout history, some presidents, including President Kennedy, were briefed on the ongoing situation. Paul’s book is shocking, but I believe history will show that his work is casting a light on an aspect of presidential awareness and involvement in the UFO/ET problem which has been ignored until now.” – Richard Geldreich, software developer and UFO researcher

Under the cover of night, on February 19th, 1973, another U.S. President witnessed extraterrestrials.

President Richard Nixon made a secret trip to a top security U.S. Air Force base, as his former boss, President Dwight Eisenhower, did in 1954. Nixon was said to have taken his golfing buddy, comedian Jackie Gleason. According to Gleason’s then wife, Beverly McKittrick Gleason, Jackie was deeply shaken later that night when he returned home and confessed to their clandestine trip.

As established in Smith’s previous work, President Eisenhower’s Close Encounters, this meeting was reminiscent of and perhaps even predicated by similar visits made by the president’s predecessors, as well as others in the American government and entertainment industry. This in-depth book will attempt to separate fact from fiction. These events were carried off without the public learning the hushed facts and data connecting the two different presidential administrations…

Heaven’s Gate: America’s UFO Religion

Author: Benjamin E. Zeller

2015 Best Book Award from the Communal Studies Association

The captivating story of the people of Heaven’s Gate, a religious group focused on transcending humanity and the Earth, and seeking salvation in the literal heavens on board a UFO

In March 1997, thirty-nine people in Rancho Santa Fe, California, ritually terminated their lives. To outsiders, it was a mass suicide. To insiders, it was a graduation. This act was the culmination of over two decades of spiritual and social development for the members of Heaven’s Gate.

In this fascinating overview, Benjamin Zeller not only explores the question of why the members of Heaven’s Gate committed ritual suicides, but interrogates the origin and evolution of the religion, its appeal, and its practices. By tracking the development of the history, social structure, and worldview of Heaven’s Gate, Zeller draws out the ways in which the movement was both a reflection and a microcosm of larger American culture. The group emerged out of engagement with Evangelical Christianity, the New Age movement, science fiction and UFOs, and conspiracy theories, and it evolved in response to the religious quests of baby boomers, new religions of the counterculture, and the narcissistic pessimism of the 1990s. Thus, Heaven’s Gate not only reflects the context of its environment, but also reveals how those forces interacted in the form of a single religious body.

In the only book-length study of Heaven’s Gate, Zeller traces the roots of the movement, examines its beliefs and practices, and tells the captivating story of its people.

Alcatraz: The Last Escape

Authors: Ken Widner & Mike Lynch

When Frank Morris and brothers John and Clarence Anglin boldly escaped from Alcatraz prison on June 11, 1962, it is widely believed that they succumbed to the waters of San Francisco Bay, though no trace of the men has ever been found, only their makeshift raft. In this reexamination of the escape and its aftermath, the Anglin brothers’ nephew presents compelling evidence that his uncles did in fact survive and eventually made their way to Brazil, where they married and had children. Using official; government documents the authors show how mobster Mickey Cohen may have been involved in the escape, some revealing letters from fellow inmate Whitey Bulger, and recorded testimony from the person who facilitated their escape to Brazil, the authors make a strong case for the Anglin brothers’ survival. In addition, a 1975 photograph of the brothers in Brazil has overcome all challenges to its authenticity by skeptics. This book provides a plausible outcome to one of America’s enduring mysteries.

Bram Stoker: Author of Dracula: An Illustrated Biography

Author: Neil Storey

Bram Stoker: Author of Dracula is an affectionate and revealing biography of the man who created the vampire novel that would define the genre and lead to a new age in Gothic horror literature.

Based on decades of painstaking research in libraries, museums, and university archives and privileged access to private collections on both sides of the Atlantic, the private letters of Bram and the reminiscences of those who knew him not only shed new light on Stoker’s ancestry, his life, loves and friendships they also reveal more about the places and people who inspired him and how he researched and wrote his books. Bram wrote numerous articles, short stories and poetry for newspapers and magazines, he had a total of eleven novels and two collections of short stories published in his lifetime, but he would only become known for one of them – Dracula. Tragically, he did not live long enough to see it as a huge success.

In his heyday as Acting Manager for Sir Henry Irving at the Lyceum Theatre in the West End of London, Bram was a well-known figure in a golden age of British theater. He was a big-framed, ebullient, genial, gentleman, with red hair and beard, who never lost his soft Irish brogue, was blessed with wit, and a host of entertaining stories fit for every occasion. Described as having the paw of Hercules and the smile of Machiavelli, above all he knew what it meant to be a loyal friend.

The Secret History of the Reptilians: The Pervasive Presence of the Serpent in Human History, Religion and Alien Mythos

Author: Scott Alan Roberts

“Fortunately, Scott Roberts boldly goes where few men have surfaced from, providing a well-balanced, innovative, and insightful approach to the topic.” —Philip Coppens, author of The Ancient Alien Question

Where the bloodlines of the Nephilim leave off, the real story just begins.

Or does it go back even further than that?

The very real probability that non-human intelligences visited and even copulated with primordial humans is detailed in civilization’s most ancient cultural and religious records. These historical records further reveal that these intelligences were reptilian in nature–or, at the very least, have been represented throughout human history in reptilian form.

From the Serpent, Nawcash, in the Garden of Eden; Atum, the Egyptian snake-man; and Quetzalcotl, the feathered serpent god of the Mayans to the double-helix snake symbol of Enki/Ea in ancient Sumerian literature, the serpent has been the omnipresent link between humans and the gods in every culture.

In The Secret History of the Reptilians, Scott Alan Roberts investigates and examines the pervasive presence of the serpent in human history, religion, culture, and politics.

Are we the product of an extraterrestrial race that moves and breathes–and even breeds–beneath the surface of all of human history?

Put on your thinking cap and take an historical, anthropological, archaeological plunge into the heady waters of extraterrestrial origins.

Life could have never prepared my family or me for the horrors that we endured after the purchase of our new home. It was a time of heartbreaking disappointment, confusion and questioning of my faith. I have a deep love for God the Almighty. Never in a million years would I have thought that my faith would be tested in such a severe way. My bond with God is even stronger today and my understanding richer. Here is my story, along with the stories of eight of the thirteen witnesses that either eye-witnessed or experienced paranormal activity in my new home. The remaining stories I have retold to the best of my recollection as they were told to me in the cases of witnesses that I could no longer find. Those names have been changed in this book. I am not a writer or author. This is simply what happened. You can believe it or not. During the writing of this book, the script has completely disappeared two different times and had to be rewritten. I am shocked at the lack of real help that is out there for this kind of thing. And how expensive the help can be once it is found, whether it works or not. No guarantee, no refund. If you suspect that you have ghosts and have never had a diagnosis of schizophrenia, you probably do. If your child tells you that they saw something similar more than once, I would bet that they did. Even though you cannot see it, it doesn’t mean that it’s not there. Believe it. You don’t need someone to come to your place, take pictures, rile up your ghosts, take your money and then leave you with angry spirits. That kind of defeats the purpose, don’t you think? I will explain, in detail, how to determine if you have ghosts in your house at the end of this book. Dealing with ghosts is not a game and should not be taken lightly.

The Murder of Richard Jennings: The True Story of New York’s First Murder for Hire

Author: Michael J. Worden

The brutal murder of Richard Jennings in December of 1818 would gain notoriety as the first murder for hire in New York. It would also be remembered as an imperfect crime. Four men – James Teed, David Dunning, David Conkling and Jack Hodges – and one woman, Hannah Teed, had conspired to murder Jennings after losing a protracted court battle over a parcel of land. Poorly made plans and rumors in the close knit community of Sugar Loaf led to a quick unraveling of the conspiracy and arrest of the perpetrators. Future President Martin Van Buren assisted in prosecuting the case which ended up with two men in prison and two men to face the hangman before a crowd of almost 20,000 people. One of the men spared the noose would later end up a renowned Christian with a memorial in his honor. Author and police detective Michael J. Worden explores the complexity of this incident in an entertaining yet historically accurate manner. Worden examines the case from the origins of the dispute, to the plot, murder, and aftermath. Worden has redefined what a true crime book should be.

Texas Bigfoot: History, Legends, and Modern Encounters in the Lone Star State

Author: Lyle Blackburn

When most people think of Texas, Bigfoot is probably not the first thing that comes to mind. Tales of the Alamo, cowboys, oil tycoons, and legendary football games are more likely to crop up in conversation than what most would consider a mystery best suited for the forests of the Pacific Northwest. Yet Texas is a vast place full of strange anomalies that are often as big as its ten-gallon reputation, and that includes sightings of ape-like creatures fitting the description of Bigfoot.

For nearly two hundred years, residents of the Lone Star State have reported dramatic encounters with elusive wildmen and hair-covered beasts that surely rival those from any part of the world. Texas may be known for its western landscapes yet its true geography is incredibly diverse, offering miles upon miles of piney woods, dense thickets, creeks, and even swamps where mysterious creatures may indeed roam and flourish. Is Sasquatch among them? Find out as I offer a thrilling journey across the wilds of the Lone Star State where true tales of the Texas Bigfoot may surprise and even shock you. They say “everything’s bigger in Texas,” and if so, this may well be the state’s biggest and most unexpected mystery of all.

Experience this hotbed of paranormal activity through Daryl’s first-hand account of the thirteen-hour investigation and the life-altering haunting that happened afterwards.

Witness to Roswell, 75th Anniversary Edition: Unmasking the Government’s Biggest Cover-up

Authors: Thomas J. Carey & Donald R. Schmitt

“When I finished Witness to Roswell, I said to myself, ‘Case closed!’ for the very wealth and sheer weight of eyewitness testimony.”—George Noory, host, Coast to Coast AM

This classic in the field of UFOology is filled with hard-hitting eyewitness testimony of one of the most important events of all time: the actual recovery of a UFO outside of Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947. For more than 70 years, government authorities have led us to believe the wreckage was merely a very conventional weather balloon—but the witnesses who were there continue to tell a different story.

Witness to Roswell once again provides a “can’t put down” written account of what really transpired in Roswell decades ago. It pries loose the truth the government doesn’t want us to know including the revelations of Walter Haut. This edition includes:

  • A growing litany of deathbed confessions describing the “little people” recovered at the crash site.
  • The most comprehensive time line of events ever published on this seminal event.
  • The identity of the Boeing engineer called in to examine the exotic wreckage from the crash.
  • What really took place at the Roswell base hospital and what nurse actually ordered the children’s caskets.
  • The story of the soldier who wore gloves at the dinner table after guarding the “bodies.”

Clearly, the implications of this information are foreboding. One need only look at the fact that officials now have four explanations for this historic event—but to which one do all the witnesses testify on their deathbeds?

Witness to Roswell once again demonstrates to the world that no statute of limitation applies to the truth: We are not alone.

• Offers advanced strategies for energetically protecting yourself and your loved ones

• Looks at the connection between limiting beliefs and empathic behaviors, including how to release limiting beliefs and how empathic behaviors are connected to the health of your energy field

There is no doubt we are living in a time of significant global upheaval and change. Yet psychic empath Suzanne Worthley, a highly skilled professional intuitive energy practitioner, shares how as an empath you can still live an empowered life, energetically protect yourself and your loved ones, and contribute in a meaningful way to creating a more positive, life-affirming reality on every level of dimension.

Starting with the basics of human energy systems, Suzanne explores different types of empaths, the three expressions of empathy, and the differences between empathy and sympathy—and why one is truly helpful and the other limiting. You will learn how to identify and release different types of limiting beliefs, both learned and programmed into our beings. You will also discover how to prevent unwanted energy transference and learn the fascinating skill of empathing buildings, land and the natural world, and other dimensions.

Confident Empath delves into aspects of empathing not often explored, such as quantum and paranormal empathing, soul contracts, and advanced empathing strategies. Interspersed throughout the guide are extraordinary and compelling true accounts from Suzanne’s professional work that illustrate the concepts taught: from encountering intermingled timelines from the 1800s to a healing investigation that walked through the holographic history of a more than 100-year-old brothel.

Lynched by a Mob! The 1892 Lynching of Robert Lewis in Port Jervis, New York

Author: Michael J. Worden

On the evening of June 2, 1892, a frenzied mob dragged Robert Lewis nearly a half a mile through the streets of Port Jervis, New York, before hanging him from the limb of a tree. Lewis, an African American, was no stranger to the village: he had lived and worked in Port Jervis all his life. But on that fateful night, Lewis stood accused of brutally raping a young, white woman named Lena McMahon, and for that he would suffer an ignominious death. Local authorities and civic leaders were powerless to stop the raging mob, and, despite the large number of witnesses present, nobody was ever held accountable for his murder. 130 years later the complete story of the lynching is told. Was Lewis set up to commit the crime? Who instigated the mob? Why wasn’t anyone held accountable? Author Michael J. Worden has spent years researching the details of the case, uncovering court documents that haven’t been seen in 130 years, and tracking down the ultimate fate of Lena McMahon.
