After 65 years, it is high time that somebody finally contextualizes the entire flying saucer phenomenon, and takes it from the hype and hyperbole of public discourse to distill its actual facts. Outside of all the theorizing, just what do we really know? How could the Air Force actually refute the whole idea of interstellar visitors after they had once been open about its possibility? What made them so certain there was no chance they could be later embarrassed and shown wrong? Did a witness to a key UFO incident actually tell the Air Force something inadvertently years later that convinced them all was hysteria based on a faulty report?
It’s time to go back to the facts. In this age of dying mythologies Gian J. Quasar has proven the perfect person to investigate the world’s once great mysteries. Like so many others from Gen. X, he grew up in the Phenomena Decade. Bigfoot, the Bermuda Triangle, UFOs, Ancient Aliens, were staples of literature and TV. But unlike so many he never became a part of those cultures. He remained independent, and as a hobby he investigated to see if there was any truth to these. He is neither debunker nor sensationalist. In his first book Into the Bermuda Triangle he endorsed the enigma of the famous section of sea. Yet for his tome on Flight 19 They Flew into Oblivion he completely removed it from having anything to do with the Bermuda Triangle. Recasting Bigfoot removed layers of modern folklore off a topic that became bloated and ludicrous.
In Flying Saucers in Inner Space, framed in all the retro-glory of early UFOlogy, Gian J. Quasar wipes out 65 years of market to start the subject all over again. Instead of conspiracy theories and assignations against the military, very public actions and policies must be assessed and placed logically into context. The Air Force came to certain facts which convinced them they were not wrong that flying saucers were bunk. He is able to reveal that the Air Force did learn that one of their own secret tests was responsible for the widespread phenomenon. They could never go public with their knowledge that they were ultimately responsible. But there was one catch: the hysteria did reveal one unexplainable phenomena: flying saucers in inner space. Were early military theorists right when they intimated that these saucers were piloted by very small beings who were possibly advanced insectozoids?
