ALL THE INGREDIENTS FOR A HIGH STRANGENESS STEW Mix two parts science fiction with one part high-level government secrecy. Add a liberal helping of the paranormal. Then let Nick Redfern heat and serve. The result is far, far stranger than anything that you could ever begin to imagine. SCIENCE FICTION SECRETS presents some mind-bending answers to a number of highly intriguing and thought-provoking questions, including: -- Did the U.S. Government secretly assist Steven Spielberg in the production of his groundbreaking science fiction movies "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" and "E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial"? -- Why were special agents of the FBI so deeply interested in the life, career, and activities of science fiction author Philip K. Dick (of "Blade Runner" fame)? -- How did "The X-Files" spin-off series "The Lone Gunmen" anticipate months in advance the terrible tragedy of 9-11? -- Why was the top brass of the U.S. Air Force so secretly interested in, and concerned by, the UFO-related tales of a relatively anonymous 1950s science fiction movie-maker who died in poverty in the early 1980s? -- Did a nightmarish scenario presented in one of H.G. Wells' novels prompt Soviet Premier Josef Stalin to clandestinely embark upon a secret and diabolical experiment designed to create a super race of monstrous, half-human half-ape soldiers? -- Has the military managed to successfully perfect human teleportation of the type that was most graphically and famously shown in "Star Trek" and "The Fly"?

From the other group of articles (2) we can learn about: the Navy's narrative regarding the Philadelphia experiment; the Rendelsham Forrest incident of 1980 that might have involved the USAF testing ball-lightning for military purpose; Project A119 from the late 1950s which was about detonating a nuclear bomb on the dark side of the Moon (as a reminder, NASA's Luna-colliding probe has been scheduled to impact on 9 October, 2009); the Serpo documents and their ties to a British-born female intel agent, in all likelihood, working for the CIA.
While the author alludes to the possibility of the SF genre being used as a tool to influence public perception, he steers clear of delving into the issue of predictive programming and/or 'revelation of the method,' whatever that might be. A minor correction with respect to Philip K. Dick's year of birth: it's 1928, not 1938 (p. 161), a fact that Mr. Redfern is well aware of, since he writes (p. 168) PKD "died of a stroke in 1982 at the age of fifty-three" (54?) -- it should be chalked up to a momentary lapse of attention, I suppose.
