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 and compelling series of UFO encounters

UFOs and Government: Come and hear the secret history of why and how governments investigate UFOs, and what they’ve concluded. Packed with inside information about the real-life X-Files, this talk shines a light on some fascinating UFO encounters - some explained, and others that remain a mystery.

The Search for Alien Life: How are scientists searching for alien life, and what might happen if they find it? Would there really be panic in the streets and what would happen to political systems and religious belief? The answers are fascinating and surprising.

The Truth about Conspiracy Theories: A generally-skeptical look at the weird and whacky world of conspiracy theories. Did the government cover up a UFO crash at Roswell; was 9/11 an “inside job” and is the world secretly run by shape-shifting lizards? Probably not. But lots of people believe otherwise, and it’s fascinating to see why.

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"

“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 a well-researched, well-written, fascinating explication of the events"
