We normally don’t boast (well, yes we do), but it’s well-recognized that Anomalist Books publishes some of the most important works of UFO research in the world. Our latest, Return to Magonia, by Chris Aubeck and Martin Shough, has been receiving high praise lately. About their investigations of cases in UFO history, folklorist Thomas E. Bullard says, in his review of the book in the Journal of Scientific Exploration: “This book is not intellectual candy to feed favorite beliefs or a sounding board for speculative theories. What this book is, is a work of serious scholarship. Seldom are such deep research, careful analysis, and stringent arguments found in the UFO literature, and Return to Magonia is exemplary both in the … research goals it undertakes and its success in carrying them out….This is fine work through and through, and exemplary of UFO research at its best.” Equally enthusiastic is the historian known as “Dr. Beachcombing,” who in his bizarre history blog review of the book says: “The book is a lot more than just a series of x-files cases….Chris and Martin have bottled the Fortean formula. Here is a natural science murder mystery: let’s solve it, or better still let’s fail to solve it an interesting way, leaving some flashes of the numinous on the horizon. There is also perhaps a hint of the underdog. The book was written by two part time researchers who pack more punch than many university teams in their use of astronomy, meteorology and the wealth of archive material on the internet…. What a fantastic book!”

We are proud to present one of the most impressive examples of UFO research in a long, long time: Return to Magonia: Investigating UFOs in History by Chris Aubeck and Martin Shough (with a foreword by Jacques Vallee). Using modern resources and tools, the authors have dissected more than 20 fascinating UFO cases from the last 500 years–all of them occurring before June of 1947. These are not mere reprints of stories from newspapers and other sources, but in-depth investigations into the who, what, where, and how of some truly remarkable sightings. It turns out that UFOs in history are as intriguing, as entertaining, and often as baffling as UFOs sightings are today.
