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.
