A Spectrum of Sanity: Exploring Our Fascination with Monsters
His novel and life still fascinate me though, as his novels have had a massive ripple effect on modern pop culture, for better or worse.
I listened to a 2012 'Hidden Experience' podcast featuring Whitley Strieber just the other day where Mike Clelland author of the book 'The Messengers' and self proclaimed "abductee" also, admits to being fascinated by Whitley's book 'Communion' when reading it in the early 90s.
Hidden Experience Podcast: Whitley Strieber/Interview
I very much have my doubts about Mike's beliefs about being an "abdutee" as well, but it's all fascinating reading to me as to just what motivates Mike on his life journey.
Mike even hosts a podcast at Whitley Strieber's website named
'The Unseen' where Mike interviews some interesting guests.
Maybe Wendy should interview Mike and/or Whitley on her
'Lucid Cafe' podcast sometime soon?
Whitley's books even used religious sounding titles for his books to seemingly demonize aliens in the mind's of the general reading public, and to spread more fear.
Not even the more believable Travis Walton incident from 1975 painted aliens in such a bad light as Whitley's probing encounter.
Although the producers of the movie 'Fire in the Sky' certainly did their best to scare the paying audience.
