“Finally, an excellent, in-depth book that gets to the heart of how, and why, the UFO subject has been smeared, ridiculed, and targeted by disinformation agents.”
—Nick Redfern, author of the real Men in Black and Bloodline of the Gods

“I have had the pleasure of working with Kathleen Marden for over 20 years in various roles in MUFON. She is absolutely 100% committed to solving the UFO riddle. One thing is certain, and that is when the answer is finally known, Ms. Marden will be at the forefront of researchers who made it happen. Her works are required reading for any researcher seeking the truth behind the UFO phenomenon.”
—Jan Harzan, Executive Director of the Mutual UFO Network
There is a clear conspiracy to deny the existence of UFOs.

The mainstream media has misinformed us for years about UFO studies conducted by highly regarded scientists associated with some of the finest universities in the country. There is significant evidence that the U.S. government has covered up the alien presence through misinformation, distortion, obfuscation, and ridicule. Some prominent, politically connected scientists have engaged in the cover up. And a few professional writers have helped to successfully label any scientists who have been persuaded by the evidence and brave enough to take a stand as unscientific charlatans, fanatics, and kooks.

Fact, Fiction, and Flying Saucers examines the wealth of archival documents that clearly demonstrate this cooperative disinformation effort and refute the false claims made by these professional scoffers. Friedman and Marden set the record straight by examining politically motivated misinformation and presenting the compelling evidence that separates fact from fiction. They reveal:

  • The most compelling UFO evidence, including a variety of large-scale scientific studies.
  • The current state of UFOlogy and what the future holds.
  • The media’s role in disclosure and denial.
  • The government scientists whose job it is to deny.
  • The Air Force, FBI, CIA, and NSA’s involvement.

    Stanton T. Friedman was a nuclear physicist who worked on a wide variety of advanced, classified nuclear systems for major industrial companies. He began the civilian investigation of the Roswell Incident; wrote Flying Saucers and Science and TOP SECRET/MAJIC; and coauthored Crash at Corona, Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience, and Science Was Wrong. He appeared on hundreds of radio and television programs. Friedman resides in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.
