Nick Red­fern add to his al­ready ex­ten­sive cat­a­logue with this wide-rang­ing spec­u­la­tive the­sis: what if there were a real con­nec­tion be­tween the alien vis­i­ta­tions and many of the world’s an­cient leg­ends and mys­ter­ies? He analy­ses the char­ac­ter­is­tics of the great men and mighty he­roes of the past and asks whether it might be fea­si­ble to re­pro­duce their pow­er­ful abil­i­ties and ap­par­ent im­mor­tal­ity with modern medicine and tech­nol­ogy. Of course vast, (sup­pos­edly) se­cret con­spir­a­cies by mil­i­tary­in­tel­li­gence agen­cies are brought into it, as Red­fern claims that one of the rea­sons for in­vad­ing Iraq in 2003 (the home of the Baby­lo­nian hero Gil­gamesh and Sitchin’s alien Anun­naki) was to re­cover an an­cient for­mula for a form of white gold said to re­ju­ve­nate hu­man cells. An amus­ing and per­haps pro­vok­ing read.
