My last post was about Whitley Strieber -The Message of the Myth?
and a few hours after I had posted it I see Jeff Mishlove has posted the first part of a two part interview with the man himself -"Whitley Strieber is author of more than 40 books, including many novels.
Among his non-fiction works are Communion: A True Story, Confirmation: The Hard Evidence of Aliens Among Us, Solving The Communion Enigma: What Is To Come?, The Secret School: Preparation for Contact, and The Key: A True Encounter.
He is coauthor, with his late wife Anne Strieber, of The Communion Letters.
He is coauthor, with Professor Jeffrey Kripal, of The Super Natural: A New Vision of the Unexplained.
His website is http://www.strieber.com/.Here he reviews the history of his encounters, over more than three decades, with entities that he identifies as "the visitors".
These encounters are of a wide variety and include elements that can be found elsewhere in both shamanic and ufological lore.
He maintains that these strange events can best be studied, and hopefully understood, if we can let go of our preconceptions of what they might be.
Some of his experiences were quite frightening and painful.
Others were ecstatic.
