A very interesting read , especially if you like this field of interest . John Keel puts together some great information on the Mothman / UFO saga of the Point Pleasant incident era . The information in the book given are of great knowledge coming from a man that gave a great commitment in his research over his life time . A must read for all those interested on the events that surrounded not just Point Pleasant but the world at this particular time scale .......

Hate to say it since I'm huge paranormal buff and this is pretty much required reading, but this has been a chore to get through, to the point I've given up.

I've been interested in the "mothman" stories/legend for a while and really enjoyed this book - couldn't put it down. Some of the language used is a bit dated and you can tell it was written pre today's more PC culture, but it's quite charming in the innocence of the accounts and descriptive style.
John Keel does not attempt to preach to the sceptics on the existence of UFOs and related phenomena, but rather leaves it to the reader to make up his/her own mind as to whether the truth is really out there.
An interesting read that will leave you wondering was that really a plane in the sky?

The classical book about paranormal hotpoint. Keel coined the term window and there is windows between our world to others. This book has it all, ufo, cryptids signting, contactee story and men in black. Please read the book instead of watching the movie. The movie took out all the fortean stuff. A must read for paranormal afficiando.

Having researched this subject for many years this book is a very good explanation of events. Although not much Mothman is mentioned, the reason is John Keel didn't experience the Mothman personally. This book reflects his experience in Point Pleasant, and he does it very well. I fully recommend the book, its the best documented sighting to date, and well worth a look...

I recently discovered John A Keel to sadly discover that he died recently. This is a great book, possibly a classic in Fortean writing. His style is easy and Keel comes across as a good witness to the events he describes.

I bought this book after being intrigued by the movie of the same name. There was one particular scene that really spooked me and I wanted to understand more. John A. Keel was a respected UFO investigator and this is a comprehensive catalogue of eye witness statements. The Mothman is mentioned but the book concentrates more on UFO sightings. I do wish that Keel had been more discriminating about his eye witnesses. I suspect a number of them were either liars or mentally ill. One man in particular claimed to have made contact with an alien who then took him time-travelling to different planets in his spaceship. From Keel's narrative it is difficult to tell whether he believes the man but then he mentions that there were many witnesses to a luminous object floating above the guy's house. Another possible crackpot is "Princess Moon Own" an extra-terrestrial who was interviewed on a radio show. The Men-In-Black make many appearances and Keel records many accounts of UFO witnesses who have have recieved strange visits from odd looking people. Some of these witnesses seem incredibly gullible, including one woman who took a tablet given to her by a visiting "alien". The tablet made her extremely ill and she had no idea what was in it. Strangely she refused to fill in a questionairre about the incident stating something like "I'm not that stupid" - really?? Keel's writing style is relaxed and very engaging and this is an interesting book. I liked the way he sends up the lack of success of his own novels, he also notes that some of the aliens adopt the names of characters from his books. It seems that he shook up those in authority enough for them to tap his phone, something confirmed by the phone company. Keel does have a habit of jumping to conclusions that suit his theories and he even says that cameras often malfunction around the Loch Ness monster, Big Foot and UFOs and this is why there are so few credible photographs. This book was published forty years ago and it would be easy to mock it now but, delusional people aside, there are many plausable eye witnesses. Keel felt that he was being warned of some future catastrophe, possibly an explosion of some sort. There was indeed a disaster in the area Keel was covering but this is probably just an unfortunate coincidence. I still don't believe in the Loch Ness Monster or Big Foot but I am unsure what to make of the events described here. Either way I am sure that John A. Keel led a very interesting life.
