A bestseller in America... an account of strange happenings... a dark terror inspired by unearthly noises and mysterious lights overhead. You'll believe it. Peterborough Evening Telegraph A 'supernatural suspense yarn that builds the tension without going into shock-horror' mode. Candis written by an investigator of the paranormal... this is a fascinating book Huddersfield Daily Examiner Keel's meticulous research,wry style and humour make this one a delight.Authentically creeepy. dreamberry


This true account of the aliens who invaded the town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia - first published in 1975 - has been made into a major motion picture starring Richard Gere, Laura Linney and Alan Bates. For thirteen months Point Pleasant was plagued by a dark terror that culminated in a major disaster. Unearthly noises and ghostly lights in the sky gave way to mutilated animals, winged monsters, weird flying machines and worst of all, the fearsomely demonic 'Bird' - the Mothman. The story reads like a novel - but every single word of it is true and fully documented by John A. Keel, who spent a year in Point Pleasant where he saw and experienced many of the stranger manifestations personally.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wake Up, Down There 6. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
As one of the most fascinating and influential Fortean books published since 1947--generally agreed upon as the beginning of the modern UFO-era---The Mothman Prophecies is, with the earlier Operation: Trojan Horse, John Keel's major contribution to the fields of speculation and Ufology. What spellbinds the reader is his very original, radical, and complete reconfiguation of what is, in the West, generally presumed to be the nature of reality; this reconfiguation is effectively woven into the macabre tale of the year-long haunting of several localities in West Virginia during the Sixties. The elements of the haunting consist not only of nebulous purple lights in the night sky, strange and invasive men who are presented as other-than-human and other-dimensional, and flying headless creatures whose glowing red eyes are set into their chests, but kidnappers, 'men in fright wigs,' time travel, hallucinations, animal disappearances, violent deaths and 'alien' space craft that drop vertically from the sky right into the laps and lives of everyday people. The first-person narration is astoundingly effective,and Keel's disarming sense of humor, implicit from the first page, permeates the story and manipuilates the reader almost unconsciously into a sense of trust, which subtly strengthens the sense of growing discomfort as the story mounts, as 'reality' as it is generally understood constricts around the narrator and reader alike, and dislocations of reason pile up.
However, since most of Keel's other books (Strange Creatures From Time & Space, Our Haunted Planet, and especially Disneyland of the Gods) achieve only rambling hackwork status, the reader must approach Mothman carefully if searching for more than a terrifying entertainment.

Von D.N.S.
I. HISTORY A lot of "the unexplained" books today got their inspiration from pioneer books like this one. I read this book several times in middle school & now many (though not all) of its theories have been confirmed with the knowledge I possess today. NOT recommended for immature readers.
II. PLOT Keel's bold "documentary" not only grips the reader because the physical events ACTUALLY occurred, but also because the book was written during a time when MIBs, aliens, & "mystery monsters" were politically INcorrect. Now everyone is jumping on the "UFO" bandwagon.
III. CHARACTERS The characters *are* or *were* real. Although Keel was a UFO journalist & therefore has a biased view, the events, interviews & conversations actually occurred AND he was there when much of it happened.
IV. THE UNEXPLAINED Keel offers a refreshing hypothesis behind the nature of the "unexplained" & "unscientific" events which STILL occur. Although *many* components of his theory are off-key, his theories including the observations that UFOs are "primarily psychic in nature" & come from "inner space vs. outer space" are not far off base. And Keel is a nonChristian!
V. REALITY WAKE UP AMERICA & skeptics! Even the Bible & world religions (which DON'T support the Bible) testify to this.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good reading for "high strangeness" buffs. 6. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
The author puts together good information on topics that are strange and out of the ordinary. A recap of events that took place in West Virginia during a thirteen month time period in 1966 and 1967. Some of the topics covered are strange creatures, UFO's, men-in-black, and prophetic events.
If you are interested in these topics then be prepared to enjoy a few evenings reading some detailed accounts of what happened to some small-town folks who were lucky (or unlucky) enough to have been in the right place at the right time. In most instances the author gives a good description of what happened, where it happened, and to whom. These are details that are often omitted in stories of the same type. There are also some good accounts of men-in-black that go beyond the characters in the movie of the same name. You'll want to read the accounts of this aspect of UFO lore.
If you are a UFO buff, Ufologist, or self-styled field investigator, then be prepared to be insulted. The author makes no bones about giving little credence or respect to these types of people. Presumably he and a handful of others of the same ilk are the only credible authors. A dichotomy since these are the most likely kind of people to read his book.
My only disappointment in the book is that there is not enough cohesiveness to the information. The events written about seem to come together only because they occurred at the same time in the same place.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Classic of the Genre 3. September 1998
John Keel is the prototype for the serious investigator of the paranormal. He combines just the right combination of skepticism and open- mindedness, along with a genuine sense of the absurdity yet reality of the situation he's dealing with. This book deals with one of the most famous series of incidents in the annals of Forteana or the paranormal, the "Mothman" incident or incidents which took place in a rural area of West Virginia in late 1966. Keel describes the seemingly unbelievable sequence of events with wry detachment. At the same time he conveys a sense of dread and fear in the face of incidents for which there is no rational explanation. Keel is probably the closest we have to the most famous and probably best chronicler of the strange and bizarre, Charles Fort. More than anything else, this book reminds us of what Shakespeare said, "There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
