Review

Written in a lively, 'Can you believe this stuff actually happened?' style, the book is an absolute must-read for believers and skeptics alike. --Booklist

Pilkington leads us into a hall of mirrors where the shadowy intelligence officers may be the deluded fantasists, and the craziest ufologists may be the ones guarding the biggest secrets. As the rug of reality is pulled repeatedly from under our feet, one thing becomes clear: the standard narrative, in which governments and the military are concealing the existence of extraterrestrials, is the opposite of the truth. Mirage Men turns the baffling world of UFOs and their investigators into a master key for decoding the twentieth century s dreams and nightmares. --Mike Jay, author of The Atmosphere of Heaven

Totally absorbing - I couldn't put it down. Full of fascinating stuff I'd never heard before and beautifully written into the bargain, it reads like a thriller, or maybe a really good ghost story. I'll be recommending it to everyone I know. --Andrew Smith, author of Moon Dust

A good read. -- Total Sci-Fi

Informative as well as hugely entertaining.--The Times

Fascinating.--Choice

Great credit to Pilkington. --Daily Mail

Product Description

In Mirage Men Mark Pilkington explores the complex, symbiotic relationship between the US military and intelligence agencies and the UFO enigma itself, together with its attendant culture of researchers, enthusiasts, mystics and charlatans. Amongst them are the Mirage Men, a close-knit group of men and women whose careers span science, medicine, the military and the intelligence services. All believe that they have received parts of a flying-saucer-shaped puzzle whose final pieces lie tantalisingly out of reach. Yet for how long?

Many of the Mirage Men believe that official ‘disclosure’ – a government announcement about the extraterrestrial presence – is just around the corner.The catch is that the world of the Mirage Men may actually be the real world, or at least the world as it really is – it’s just that the rest of us haven’t realised it yet. If we listen to the Mirage Men, somewhere deep within the sprawling apparatus of US government lies the ultimate truth about UFOs and extraterrestrials. This is the Holy Grail that the Mirage Men are chasing.

Mirage Men is not your average UFO book: it is about UFOs, those who believe in them, and those who would have us believe in them.
