New Saucerian Press proudly presents Forget About Flying Saucers: You Can't Stop Us, and It Will Only Cause Panic and Disaster, one of the last books edited by the iconic ufologist, publisher, and best-selling author, Gray Barker, whose writing influenced the plotlines of shows like Star Trek, Futurama, The X-Files, Twin Peaks, The Outer Limits, The Jetsons, Lost in Space, and The Twilight Zone.
Shuttling between his Manhattan publishing office and his secluded cabin deep in the hills of his home state of West Virginia, the prolific Barker single-handedly kept public interest focused on UFOs during it leanest years and introduced many themes still discussed and investigated by today’s paranormal and conspiracy researchers: the Roswell UFO Crash, Men in Black, Ancient Aliens, Nazi UFOs, the Philadelphia Experiment, the Flatwoods Monster, Mothman, MJ-12, secret underground bases, little green men, and the Maury Island Incident.
Forget About Flying Saucers and its sister books Visitors from the Void, Flying Saucer Fire and Fury, Serpents of Fire, Saucers of Fear, Saucers of Fire, Bigfoot Shootout, and Time-Traveling Through Swamp Gas were assembled by Barker shortly before his death, using material culled from deteriorating copies of his notoriously speculative newsletters and gossipy syndicated column - for years the most widely read national column on UFOs, Forteana, and “weird science”. In true newsletter style, these works shed urgent, much-needed light on a wide variety of ufological riddles. Some of these articles were the very first reports on famous cases, such as that of Antonio Villas-Boas, the Brazilian farmer who was forced to have sex with a spacewoman.
