Edited by well-known con­spir­acy the­o­rist Ti­mothy Green Beck­ley, this edi­tion of The Sky Peo­ple, orig­i­nally pub­lished in 1960, the first book by the 8th Earl of Clan­carty, Brins­ley Le Poer Trench, will be of lit­tle more than his­tor­i­cal in­ter­est to most mod­ern UFO stu­dents. From 1956 to 1959 the ec­cen­tric Clan­carty edited the Fly­ing

Saucer Re­view. His the­o­ries that Adam and Eve, Noah, and other Bib­li­cal char­ac­ters were the re­sult of Mar­tian ex­per­i­ments on the red planet def­i­nitely have a cer­tain Qu­ater­mass 1950s charm to them. How­ever, not even the most die-hard an­cient as­tro­naut be­liever will be per­suaded by an ar­gu­ment based on now de­bunked canals al­legedly criss­cross­ing the Mar­tian sur­face.

The book ben­e­fits from a col­lec­tion of es­says writ­ten by con­tem­po­rary UFO writ­ers in­clud­ing Texas-based Bri­tish au­thor and mon­ster hunter Nick Red­fern.
