For almost ten years FBI Special Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully pursued UFOs, vampires, lake monsters, werewolves, ghosts, aliens, dark and sinister conspiracies, biblical mysteries, man-made flying saucers, and more. Their paranormal and paranoia-filled show, The X-Files, spawned the unforgettable catchphrases The truth is out there, and Trust no one.

Of course, The X-Files was merely a work of fiction and the idea that government, military, and intelligence agencies around the globe would take an interest in such out-of-this-world controversies is manifestly absurd. Isn’t it? Perhaps not. 

In this book you will learn the remarkable facts pertaining to what could arguably be termed the real-life X-files of the American, British, and former Soviet governments. Come with us on a remarkable journey into the unknown as we reveal the FBI’s records on the men who claimed face-to-face contact with alien creatures; the attempts by the U.S. Air Force to build nuclear-powered flying saucers; the true story concerning Britain’s military and the Loch Ness Monster; the KGB’s and the Central Intelligence Agency’s plans to perfect the ultimate psychic-spy; the real-life Men in Black who terrorize UFO witnesses into silence; the American military’s use of vampire legends, witchcraft, sorcery and black magic; the crop circle secrets of the British government; FBI documents on a series of macabre and baffling cattle mutilations; official U.S. government files on spontaneous human combustion; naval reports of gargantuan sea monsters; the stranger-than-fiction world of animal espionage; telepathic experiments conducted by the CIA; unexplained phenomena reported during the Second World War; the CIA’s files on Noah’s Ark; and much more.

It should be noted that the nature of intelligence work requires agencies to obtain information on just about anything and everything that might conceivably have a bearing on national security. Therefore, it is really not at all surprising that documentation on “the unknown” has been created and studied at an official level.

But for years, the official files on these and other mysteries were tightly held under the strictest security. With the passing of legislation such as the U.S. government’s Freedom of Information Act and the British government’s Thirty Year Ruling, however, that security has, to a degree at least, begun to ease -- to the extent that we can now safely say that “the truth” is indeed “out there.” 

And yes, you can trust us!
