Encounter In Rendlesham ForestThe Inside Story of the World’s Best-Documented UFO Incident
Thomas Dunne Books

Roswell was only the beginning! An in-depth look at the Rendlesham Forest UFO Incident, the world's most sensational, best-evidenced and most compelling series of UFO encounters. Based on testimony from military personnel and on declassified documents, this UFO book needed security clearance from both the US and the UK government.

UFOs - An Insider's Perspective: UFOs have come out of the fringe and into the mainstream. In December 2017, The New York Times uncovered the fact that the Pentagon ran a UFO program known as AATIP (Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program), three videos were released of US Navy jets chasing UFOs, and various US senators reported having received classified briefings in Congress. Nick Pope uses his inside knowledge of government UFO research/investigation to shed light on the greatest mystery of the modern era.

Conspiracy Theories: Truth and Fiction: Nick Pope isn't just an expert on conspiracy theories - he's featured in some too, with many people in the UFO community believing he's still secretly working for the government. Did a UFO crash at Roswell and was JFK really shot by a lone gunman? Did we go to the moon, was 9/11 an inside job, and is the world secretly run by shape-shifting reptilian aliens? Nick Pope delivers an informative and entertaining insight into the fascinating, amusing, and occasionally scary world of conspiracy theories.

Nick Pope writes for The NY Post on how UFOs have come “out of the fringe and into the mainstream.”

The Guardian exposes Congress for still watching for UFO sightings in Pope’s article.

Praise for Encounter in Rendelsham Forest "Pope’s questions and detailed evidence certainly give readers on both sides of the UFO debate plenty to chew on."
- Publishers Weekly

"Full of paranoia about the government - not all of it, or even most of it, unwarranted."
- The Washington Post

“Read this book and you will be convinced that we are not alone in the Cosmos. It will open your mind to ‘the broader reality’ that holds so much promise if we only embrace it positively.”
- Paul T. Hellyer, Former Defence Minister of Canada

"This is probably the most well-documented UFO incident ever. Author Nick Pope had full cooperation from two of the main eye-witnesses and also gathered a lot of previously unseen material through the Freedom of Information Act. This is a well-researched, well-written, fascinating explication of the events."
