High and Mighty Aliens

Slender Man Alien
When we think of aliens we think of diminutive guys—little green (or grey) men. But there are equally as many sightings of tall aliens. Tall as in scarily tall, with equally scary agendas.

The Tall Whites

Tall White Aliens
The name says it all; these beings have to duck when passing through an average sized door here on Earth. Where there are UFO sightings there are often reports of Tall White beings—pale, humanoid, and often long-haired, rather like angels who have jettisoned their wings.

Airman First Class Charles Hall was Range Weather Observer for several gunnery ranges between 1965 and 1967. In a trilogy of books titled “Millennial Hospitality” he recalls being observed by Tall White beings on many occasions as he went about his duties tracking weather balloons. His superiors apparently knew all about the presence of the aliens, and made a treaty whereby advanced scientific knowledge was exchanged.

According to Hall, “They had the usual thin frail body build, chalk white skin, large blue eyes, and nearly transparent platinum blonde hair. Like all of the tall whites, their eyes were perhaps twice the size of human eyes and they stretched noticeably further around the sides of their heads than human eyes do.”

Men In Black

Men In Black Alien
There is more to the MIB phenomenon then the trilogy of movies starring Will Smith! Of course, those scripts were based on actual Men In Black reports.

Since the late Forties and the infamous Roswell UFO crash, reports of dark-suited individuals visiting UFO witnesses have entered into popular culture. Often, they would arrive in twos, sometimes driving a very official looking black sedan, and knock on a witness’s door. MIBs are described as very serious, very tall, and wearing dark glasses. Extremely no-nonsense in tone, they warn the witness to keep quiet about his or her sighting. While threats are rarely given, the MIBs presence alone is often enough to silence witnesses.

Theories suggest that these men are from a covert government group who do not want the truth about the extraterrestrial presence on Earth to be disseminated. Other theories suggest that the Men In Black are in fact aliens themselves. There have been accounts of these odd individuals coming to a witness’s house, sitting down, and then asking to be told about very mundane objects, such as candle holders or radios– as though they have never seen these things before.

The Slender Man

The Slender Man Alien
In recent years, accounts of the Slender Man have grown. Though often ascribed to an internet hoax, sightings of this tall, faceless being are on the increase. Over 8 feet tall, the Slender Man is said to be clothed in a dark suit and has a face that is white and featureless. Its raison d’être seems to be stalking and abducting children.

Only last month, in December, 2014, a resident of Cannock Chase in Staffordshire, UK, reported a horrifying visitation: I was awoken just before 2am by an odd scratching noise in my bedroom. ‘As I tried to get out of bed and investigate further, the shadow began to stretch towards the ceiling. It was at that point I found myself faced with the most disgusting and horrific creature imaginable. ‘It was about eight feet tall and had a white face with razor-sharp fangs.’

Accounts of lofty extraterrestrials do not end there. It  has been speculated that the man-beast of the Pacific Northwest, Bigfoot, is a visiting alien creature. Bigfoot is an 8-9 foot creature covered in black hair, and an uncanny ability to vanish from view—a trait that have led some investigators to suggest that it is inter-dimensional, popping in and out of our world at will.

People who have claimed to have been abducted by aliens have sometimes reported the presence of tall humanoid beings on board alien craft. Believed to be human-alien hybrids, these beings are over 6 foot in height, slim, and largely expressionless. Much speculation has surfaced over recently years that the Men In Black (and even the Slender Men) are in fact alien-human hybrids, created to infiltrate our world.

Bigfoot – Big Deal or Big Hoax?

Yet another Bigfoot video purporting to have captured the elusive man-beast has surfaced again (see below). But is it the real thing? A critical mind will tell you that this is a man in a shaggy black suit stomping through the snow. Videos of Sasquatch have never suitably convinced me (more’s the pity) unless, of course, were talking about the infamous Patterson Bigfoot footage, which somehow looks too sinuous and muscled to be a suit. Native Americans have plenty of tales of Algonquin-speaking giant men who have roamed the deep forests since the beginning of time. So, could there be true to this legend?

To look at this mystery scientifically naturally brings one to thoughts about our own origins. Bigfoot could be a remnant of our own ancestry. Many Bigfoot researchers have postulated that the creature is an offshoot of Gigantopithecus – an extinct hominid species that stood almost 9 feet tall.

Bigfoot Research; Bigfoot Video

Let’s say this creature exists. The next step is to capture and study one. But do we have the right to capture an entity that could be related to humans? There are plenty of self-styled Bigfoot hunters roaming the Pacific North West of America toting elephant guns and hoping to bag the catch of the century. Is it ethical? Is it right?

But, most importantly, is it real?

Comet 67P – An Alien Spaceship? Conspiracies Abound…

Well, here we go again.

Mankind sends yet another delicate instrument on a long journey into the inky universe for an encounter of the scientific kind with a Celestial Body. In this case, a comet bigger than New York – Comet 67P. From the moment the Philae lander fired its grappling hooks, conspiracy theories popped up like mushrooms. Why would anyone believe it is a massive coverup designed to hide the face that the Rosetta mission was to hobnob with aliens?

Also have a look at a very intriguing video of a strange object allegedly passing over the comet…

UFO Sightings Are On The Rise

Just when you thought it was safe to drive down a lonely road at night…!

Those strange glowing lights (and occasional structured craft) are showing up more and more. They have seemingly always been with us, but really exploded on the scene in 1947, just prior to the infamous Roswell UFO Crash. Since then there have  been sightings, contacts, and even abductions.

UFO Sightings Continue To Be On The Rise

Dying Scientist: ‘Aliens are Real’ (VIDEO)

Deathbed confessions regarding UFOs and the existence of aliens are nothing new, but this particular tell-all is stirring up a firestorm of controversy in the skeptical and UFO communities.

I personally have no problem whatsoever with the idea of alien beings not only existing, but coming to earth. After all, it’s probably what we’ll be doing once our technology has advanced enough.

What do you think?

Who or What are The Black Eyed Kids?

Just let us in, this won’t take long.’

What would you do if strangers appeared at your door and said this to you? Unnerving enough, but what if those strangers were children with totally black eyes and a strange air of dread about them?

The Black Eyed Kids phenomenon is happening all around the world, with incidents of these weird encounters with groups of small children (averaging 8-10 years of age) appearing at doorsteps, cars, or even out in the open, asking for help, only to vanish moments later. The most unsettling thing about these kids are their eyes – totally black, covering the iris and sclera, soulless and unblinking. But what exactly do these children want?

‘Let me in, it won’t take long…’

A Typical Encounter

Paranormal researcher David Weatherly reports many such encounters in his book, Black Eyed Children. One such incident occurred in Dallas, Texas, where a gentleman came home, placed his hand on the door handle and suddenly a child appeared out of nowhere by the steps. Startled, the man looked at the boy, noting the child’s pale skin and solid black eyes. ‘Is it food time?’ the boy asked. The man was stunned. The boy repeated his question, ‘Is it food time?’.

Glancing inside, he saw that his three-year-old Pitbull was charging at the front door. This was the most fearsome of guard animals, having bit rattlesnakes in half on many an occasion. Upon seeing the black eyed child, the dog skidded to a stop. Wining, tail between its legs, the Pitbull shot under the bed and stayed there for days, refusing to come out. The man slipped inside and locked the door. The child peered through the glass of the door and continued tapping. Eventually, the child vanished.

The Gruesome Details

Reports of encounters with Black-Eyed Kids have been coming in to paranormal researchers since the late 1990s, and are on the increase. A typical encounter begins with a continual knocking at a resident’s door. The home owner opens the door to see a trio of young children standing on the doorstep who are not in anyway known in the neighborhood and who are dressed in nondescript clothing – like what Amish kids might wear. Other times they wear modern clothes like jeans and hoodies, though drab brown or gray, as if trying not to be noticed. The clothes may be ill-fitting, as though they don’t quite know how to dress. There are no signs of phones, iPods, or other gadgets. The skin of the children is pasty, almost artificial looking. The eyes are totally black. Body movements are very minimal, and have been described as ‘awkward’ or ‘stiff’.

‘Please, can we come in?’ they typically ask. ‘We just want to use your phone. This won’t take long. We’re just kids.’ The voices are droning, mechanical – repeating these entreaties over and over again: ‘Please, let us in. This won’t take long.’

These encounters usually happen in the evening, just when the sun is going down.

One thing most encounters have in common is that these children want to be allowed inside or want you to follow them.

Sinister Implications

But what does it all mean? Researchers such as David Weatherly and Dave Schrader agree that there does seem to be a sinister agenda. Although very few reports have trickled where people have let these strange kids inside, no real harm has yet come to anyone who has come face to face with these entitie – yet – though victims have been left in a permanently anxious state.

So what is going on? Are these demon in the guise of children? Alien hybrids? Or just children playing pranks? The way these children seem to appear and disappear seems to preclude the latter.

Case in point:

Host of Darkness Radio, Dave Schrader, was contacted in 2011 by an elderly woman from Minnesota with details of a particularly frightening encounter. One night in the middle of summer, at about 10pm, after it had been raining non-stop for several days, she and her husband heard what sounded to be children laughing and playing outside in their front yard. The woman got a very uncomfortable feeling and wondered who would let their kids out at this time of night. Looking outside, she didn’t see any children.

After retiring to bed, the woman woke at 2am to find a trio of young children standing at her bedside. They had pale skin and totally black eyes. She quickly squeezed her eyes shut and took a deep breath, expecting that the children would be gone once she opened them again – a dream. But they were still there.

Just as the woman opened her mouth to scream, the child in the middle of the trio put a finger to his lips and said, ‘Shhhh, we just want to look at you.’

The woman screamed, awaking her husband. Flicking on the lights, the woman looked around the bedroom… but the children were gone.

Whatever the implications of this growing phenomenon, we can be sure of one thing – it will not be giving up all of its secrets anytime soon. And just with ghosts, alien abductions, and bigfoot encounters, the run-ins with Black Eyed Kids will soon become a part of the paranormal lexicon.

Alien Abduction – A Fairy Story?

My short story collection, From Elsewhere, contains six tales of unearthly vistiors. ‘Them‘ is a story about alien abduction. Everyone has heard of this phenomenon. Is it real, or does it have a secret origin?

alien1_jpg

Alien beings have been with us in folklore for a very long time.

Before accounts of abductions by alien beings entered into the public domain, another kind of abduction scenario was known throughout various cultures – especially England and Ireland. These tales of interactions with fairies (or faeries as was the ancient spelling) are remarkably similar to modern accounts of interactions with those other ‘diminutive folk’, the Greys from – allegedly – the Zeta Reticuli star system. Could these tales be based upon knowledge of early interaction between humans and aliens?

From very early times there have been traditions of mortals carried away into faerieland. Often this mortal was a human baby, taken from its mother’s side – shades of the implantation/hybridisation programme carried out by the Greys. The hybrid parallel comes into this comparison in more ways than one.

Faeries were believed, almost more than anything else, to be obsessive about the possession of human children. Infants would be stolen, and duplicate ‘changelings’ put in their place, though the trick was often found out. Mentions of thefts of babies are to be found in the medieval chronicles of Ralph of Coggeshall.

Fly-boy

From early classical times there have been numerous legends of the visits of goddesses and nymphs to human mortals, and their loving intercourse with them, though always ending tragically for the human – the mother usually dying or seeing the infant spirited away to the faeries’ world. So what were these beings actually believe to be?

In England, Scotland, and Ireland, the small ‘people’ were believe to be the spirits of the dead, though in Wales they are simply described as being half way between something material and spiritual. The spiritual nature of aliens is often referred to in modern-day as abduction accounts, many abductees have recalled that, on some occasions, they are taken spiritually rather than physically. An Isle of Man resident wrote in The Nature of Fairies that ‘Fairies are spirits. A man below here forgot his cow, and at a late hour went to look for her, and saw that crowds of fairies like children were with him. It is interesting to note here that in modern abduction accounts our Zeta Reticulan friends are often likened to ‘children’.

When does alien abduction occur? The research shows that it is during the hypnogogic state – the state between being awake and asleep – that the tagged person is taken. In this state, the brain is in ‘alpha wave’, referring to the type of brain activity we lapse into during the hypnogogic state. This seems to attract/suit the aliens. When in this state, it seems, abductees can be transported, mollified, and eventually made to forget the entire occurrence.

Curiously, in Amelia and the Dwarfs (1870), author Juliana Horatia Ewing says in order to see one of the little folk, ‘you must be a little sleepy – but not too sleepy to keep your eyes open, mind. Well, and you ought to feel a little – what one may call ‘fairyish’. The Scots call it ‘eerie’.’

There was no technology during the times of these stories, so an explanation of this phenomenon would have to have manifest itself in a way digestible to the people of the time. Obviously, elaboration and corruption will occur in the telling of any tale, but the basic similarities are intriguing.

‘From Elsewhere’ – Paranormal short story collection – available now!

From Elsewhere_Collection

Ghosts? Angels? Aliens? This collection of short tales concerns entities which could be any of these. Unearthly visitors have always fascinated me. Could they really exist? Or are they only part of our imagination?

Last month, I introduced my short story collection – ‘From Elsewhere’. This is a collection of six paranormal-themed short stories about unearthly visitors. Many of these stories were accepted and published in anthologies and magazines over the past few years. Gathering them together into one volume seemed the right thing to do.

In December, I released one of these tales, ‘Forbidden’ – about the illicit love affair between an angel and a demon – as a freebie. It has done very well on Smashwords.com, having 160 downloads since its publication on December 23rd. I then released two other stories (also as freebies), ‘Them’, and ‘Grey Eyes In Silver’. Both are accumulating downloads just as fast as ‘Forbidden’ did!

‘From Elsewhere – Six Tales of Unearthly Visitors’ (ISBN: 9781301729739) has been published on Amazon, Smashwords, Goodreads, and soon will be available on Barnes & Noble, and other book outlets.

I enjoyed putting this collection together, and loved writing these stories. Huge, heartfelt thank you to those people who have read the free stories and gave them the thumbs up!

Strange visitors is a subject that has always fascinated me. Do we have unearthly entities interacting with us and our planet?

Grey Eyes In Silver

‘Grey Eyes In Silver’, a short story about a discarded mirror that brings more than just everyday reflections.

Who, or what, exactly stares back at Penny as she gazes into an old mirror? A hallucination…or portent of death?

A discarded mirror brings more than just everyday reflections.

Excerpt:

Pen stroked the child’s sweaty head. “Hey, sweetheart,” she said soothingly. “Did you have a bad dream again? Look – look at what we have…”

Taking her son in to her arms, she held him in front of the mirror.

Immediately the boy stopped crying.

“Who is that?” she asked him in a high-pitched voice. “Who is that in the mirror?”

Excerpt:

I don’t like the feel of Their skin. But there’s nothing I can do, now; They’ve taken me.

For as long as I can remember, beings that could only be referred to as ‘alien’ have been in my life. It was nothing I’d asked for.

And it’s not just Their skin that gives me the creeps; it’s Their eyes. Everyone talks about those eyes, the way they stare right through you. They’re cold and … oh, what the hell, I have to use that word again, alien.

The only way I have kept sane is by telling myself, over and over, that They are scientists just like I am. Well, Their science is different than ours, incredibly so, and it seems as though it’s sole purpose is for the study of us. Sometimes I feel as though its sole purpose is for the study of me.

When I was younger, I was totally unaware of Them. I had heard things, of course, but never in my lifetime did I think that one I day might actually interact with Them! God, just the image of Them, the eyes, the difference in height … I’ve got to get a grip.
