Alien Abductions

All my books and articles are also listed in Publications.

People often ask me where they can find out more on a particular subject. Here are my suggestions of things you can watch, listen to or read about Alien Abductions.


‘Horizon’ from 1994 – in the heyday of abduction claims. For this BBC2 documentary called ‘Close Encounters’, I visited abductees and the therapists who hypnotisd them, discovered lots about sleep paralysis and had a scary time in Michael Persinger’s ‘God Helmet’.
