Book Description

Dec 1997
Well-documented, in-depth books shed new light on the existence and meaning of paranormal and parapsychological events

In this harrowing companion to The Andreasson Affair and his subsequent UFO investigations, Raymond Fowler recounts the paranormal experiences of the entire Andreasson family as well as those of his own family members. New evidence of alien abductions of members of both families help prove the hypothesis that UFO events are often family affairs. With enough background for new readers, this book completes the story of the two families for those people already familiar with the first installment.

Product Description

From the Author

The Startling Conclusion of the Andreasson Affair
The Andreasson Legacy culminates nearly twenty years of my investigation of the UFO experiences of Betty Andreasson Luca. My latest research unveils a plethora of paranormal events that haunt abductees in the aftermath of their experience. I open the Luca and Fowler family closets of UFO and psychic experiences and portray the startling similarities between them. This newly documented material demonstrates that such experiences are often family affairs. It also provides strong evidence that UFO and accompanying paranormal experiences may be just individual expressions of one underlying source - a Metaphenomena. Lastly, all communications from the aliens are isolated, itemized and analyzed to produce the core of their message. Ultimately, their message is the greatest contribution willed to humankind by the Andreasson Legacy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting concept 29 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Fowler's metaphenomena concept is an interesting one in that he states that he feels that the whole UFO phenomenon is a part of a larger, encompassing phenomena that umbrellas UFOs, aliens, religion, and paranormal/poltergeist phenomena. It sounds plausible..it's rather similar to what I'd expect from Jacques Vallee. Unfortunately, the author brings much of his own life into the story and attempts to draw parallels betweeen his own family and the Andreassons. This normally wouldn't be too bad, but some of his "coincidences" seem like grasping for straws a la the Kennedy/Lincoln "coincidences." In spite of this, the book's a decent read. However, I recommend the Watchers I/II a bit more highly than this one.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This 1997 publication is Ray Fowler's fifth and final book exploring the long and detailed abduction history of Betty Andreasson-Luca (nee Elizabeth Aho) and her family. In this 438-page tome, the author also spends several chapters recounting his own history of alien abductions and related bodily scarring, with a photo section reproducing monochrome images of near-identical scoop mark scars on 12 different people.

Much of the text of TAL goes over ground already covered in the previous 4 volumes from `The Andreasson Affair' through the `Watchers' duo so, if you've read these, be prepared for a lot of repetition. There is a useful chapter which summarises the work of the late CA obstetrician/gynaecologist Dr. Richard Neal on the `missing pregnancy' syndrome during his time with MUFON (Neal also worked extensively with Budd Hopkins and the IF during the 1990s prior to Neal's untimely demise). There's also a section on the recovery of exotic implants extracted from abductees' bodies by Dr. Roger Leir and other surgeons affiliated to MUFON at this time.

The catalogue of strangeness recounted by Fowler includes multiple psychic phenomena, endless `synchronicities' (most of which are repeated verbatim in the author's 2004 book `Synchrofile') and evident attempts by the abducting entities to surgically extract sperm from his ductus deferens, in the process leaving a straight-line scar on the tissue behind his scrotum.

As usual with this author, much of the story is autobiographical as he attempts to draw parallels between his own family's experiences and those of the Andreasson-Lucas.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best investigations I've read. 18 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Fowler has been following this story for years, and this culmination of all he's learned is excellent. Fowler's investigation is not polluted by his own expectations, the way so many other works in this field are.

3.0 out of 5 stars More of the same from Fowler and Andreasson-Luca, and a conclusion (sort of) 16 Aug 2013
By The Guardian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This 1997 publication is Ray Fowler's fifth and final book exploring the long and detailed abduction history of Betty Andreasson-Luca (nee Elizabeth Aho) and her family. In this 438-page tome, the author also spends several chapters recounting his own history of alien abductions and related bodily scarring, with a photo section reproducing monochrome images of near-identical scoop mark scars on 12 different people.

As usual with this author, much of the story is autobiographical as he attempts to draw parallels between his own family's experiences and those of the Andreasson-Lucas. Once again Fowler leaves the reader drowning in information about his own personal experiences, whilst ultimately offering little by way of understanding the motives behind the abduction program. As in the `Watchers' books, Fowler adheres to the `metaphenomena' concept which attempts to attach the abduction program to near-death experiences (NDEs) and other paranormal phenomena, in the way of Jacques Vallee in his 1975 essay `The Invisible College' and subsequently championed by Col John Alexander in several published papers. This idea doesn't convincingly explain the abductors or their motives and reads more like `argument from spurious similarity' so, like most of Vallee's ideas, sounds superficially impressive but essentially leads up a blind alley offering no real understanding of what is really going on, or why. Another inhibiting factor to deductive reasoning is that both Ray Fowler and Betty Andreasson-Luca are devout Christians (BAL is a Pentecostal, whose adherents enter into ecstatic trances and `speak in tongues') and attempts are made by Fowler to force-fit the abduction experiences and related phenomena into their Judeo-Christian world-view/ideology. Broadly speaking, Fowler's conclusions are in line with the usual banal, new-age ideology that the `Elders' are intervening to `save the planet' and the human race from destruction, environmental catastrophe, yadda yadda.

TAL however is very well presented, with some illustrations of a high standard and exemplary text-editing. Despite its shortcomings and need of a pruning editor, this series of five books on the Andreasson-Luca case is good background reading for anyone seriously interested in the abduction issue. Raymond Fowler's heart is in the right place and if not a great writer, he's without dispute an honest and dedicated researcher. I would rate his single-volume investigation of the simultaneous abduction of four young men in Maine `The Allagash Abductions' as his best-ever contribution to this field of study for a number of reasons, including the succinct, hard-factual writing style and admirable brevity which characterises that particular book.
3.0 out of 5 stars Old material reintroduced, not much new 25 Feb 2014
By Joseph Bishop - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I wish that the author would have just stuck to his much earlier 'nuts and bolts' research, in which actual physical facts and non-hypnotic interview material was put together to make a very strong case for the reality of UFOs and what they might be up to. Unfortunately he has fallen into a kind of gullibility hole as regards deep hypnosis recall with 'abductees', coupled with his personal religious belief system which closely parallels that of Betty Andreasson - thereby heightening the gullibility factor and throwing a lot of this into something far beyond 'high strangeness'.

This book draws heavily on the author's earlier books and rehashes a lot of old material, and not much new is introduced other than various paranormal claims made as pertaining to his own family and that of Betty Andreasson.

I still recommend the book as a continuation reading of the author's books, but I advise the reader to adopt some healthy skepticism. If one were to remove the deep hypnosis material and then remove the paranormal claims, one isn't left with a whole lot. I give this three stars for the author's always interesting speculations however bizarre they sometimes trend.
5.0 out of 5 stars 5th in the series of the Andreasson Affair 19 Mar 2013
By pmgeorgic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you really want to learn about the deep investigation of alien contact abduction and the continuing information that these aliens are attempting to tell us all through Betty and Bob Luca and through the author Ray Fowler, this is the series to get.
The Andreasson Affair was amazing and shocking. I read that first book soon after its publication and was astounded. I did not read the Phase II of The Andreasson Affair until after I read Watchers by Ray Ed Fowler. I didn't realize that there was a "phase II". I didn't recognize that Ray went any further with this investigation, then found the Watchers II and read them both At the time there was no internet and therefore following a particular author and their offerings was extremely difficult. I am so pleased to have finally found this book online hoping to have the cash to begin to read other publications written by Raymond E. Fowler. This information is fascinating and remarkable.
