My Two Decades on the UFO Beat
by Patrick Huyghe

  SWAMP GAS TIMES is a revealing memoir by a journalist who has covered the UFO field for more than twenty years. This honest, behind-the-scenes look at how the media handle UFO stories also examines the dramatic events and major players that have transformed UFO research in the past quarter century. In a series of commentaries and updates to articles written for the New York Times, Omni, Science Digest, Newsweek, and more, you'll learn:
  • whether the New York Times and other media organizations have conspired
    to keep the truth about the UFO phenomenon from the public
  • why “60 Minutes” hasn’t pursued the UFO mystery
  • what the government really knows about UFOs (and whether or not the president has been told)
  • what role NASA has agreed to play in UFO research
  • whether UFO home videos have captured advanced technologies on tape
  • if crime lab techniques could help finger an alien abductor
  • whether defense satellites have tracked objects not of this earth
  • what made Carl Sagan think we may have received signals from an
    extraterrestrial civilization
  • what the Pentagon says when asked if the military is involved in “alien abductions”
  • and what those top-secret National Security Agency documents reveal about UFOs.
