Product Description

Aliens in the Backyard:

UFO Encounters, Abductions, & Synchronicity

In the early morning hours of March 28, 2011, Charles and Helene Fontaine experienced something that shattered their beliefs about the nature of reality.

One evening in 1981, Connie J Cannon was on I-75 with her young son, en route to their new home in Florida, when they suddenly found themselves on a military base, with a man in uniform holding a gun to her head as three Grays stood nearby.

In 1979, Diane Fine was on her way from upstate New York to Vermont to see an obstetrics specialist for her high risk pregnancy, and experienced two hours of missing time. When she was finally examined at the clinic, she was told wasn’t pregnant.

In 1970, pilot Bruce Gernon was chased by something through the Bermuda Triangle and he has been talking about it ever since - to UFO Hunters, the Discovery Channel, National Geographic, the History Channel, the Sci-Fi channel, and all their foreign counterparts.

These individuals have never met. But they share something significant. In 2003, a Roper Organization survey revealed that 33 million Americans may be abductees. Aliens in the Backyard is their story.

"Trish and Rob MacGregor have written a sobering, engaging and important book about the mysterious subject of alien abduction. When I read it, I was reminded of how little we know about this incredible, complex and enigmatic subject, and just how much light this insightful book sheds on it.

If we are ever going to understand this phenomenon, books such as this are essential. Read it and wonder: what have we missed about our world? Perhaps the most important thing that has ever happened.

Aliens in the Back Yard is a treasure."

Whitley Strieber

Florida-based Rob and Trish MacGregor are successful authors of both fiction and non-fiction who have each separately won the Edgar Allen Poe Award. They are also married to each other. This bang-up-to-date, concise 154-page hardcover volume from Crossroad Press (pub 2013) offers their take on UFO encounters, alien abduction and synchronicity. They begin as out-and-out skeptics with an outsiders' perspective and, as the saying goes, have no dog in this particular fight but are simply curious to find out if there's anything real to these odd but persistently reported phenomena.

The result is an engaging and serious book which examines a handful of cases old and new with appropriate investigative rigor, discusses these subjects in a thoughtful and intelligent way and concludes that Something Really Is Going On Here. Although the target readership is obviously intended to be the casual middle-market `demographic', even those well-read in this subject will find plenty of new and fascinating material.

The story of Charles and Helene Fontaine, a couple in Quebec, is deeply moving in that they didn't even believe in UFOs prior to their experience (the `aliens in the backyard' of the book's title) and found their encounter deeply traumatising at every level, the more so because they felt they couldn't talk about it for fear of ridicule, so told no-one. Charles in particular suffered deep psychological trauma, and several months following the encounter felt he might be going insane. The authors quote the late Dr. John Mack of Harvard University Medical School: "Experiencers can't `unknow' what they know. Once your worldview has been turned inside out by such a shock, there's no undoing it".

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good 17 Nov 2013

Expands the mind with more knowledge, you can make your own mind up from all the info in the book, but adds detail to other info stories without hype. It is a genuine worry that the keepers of the truth are the politicians and big businesses who have caused the last recession and world turmoil. Keep writing well researched books like these and the truth will be out.

Loved this book. I've done a fair amount of research into this subject, and everything I read here backed up my own work. Well researched and written. I felt I was with the writers on their journeys of discovery.
