Publisher's Summary

Since the beginning of recorded time, mankind has been plagued by unknown forces and beings, baffled by archaeological phenomena, and haunted by the inexplicable accuracy - and inaccuracy - of prophecies and "visions." In the classic Our Haunted Planet, John A. Keel brings into chilling focus strange truths about the Earth and its mysterious inhabitants. Could an unseen, prehuman race have taken careful measures to remain hidden from surface dwellers? Are they still watching us from their secret hiding places, manipulating and misleading us, using us for their own entertainment, and controlling our actions?
Our Haunted Planet is an entertaining survey of anomalous "Fortean" events such as UFOs, enigmatic stone monuments, Men in Black, missing ships and aircraft, phantom radio broadcasts, teleportation, missing time, black magick, tulpas, angels, demigods, tricksters, and much more.
Unlike most ufologists, who settle on a literal interpretation of such phenomena, Keel is broad-minded and courageous enough to include all possibilities - including the impact of occultists and spies on the fields of ufology, conspiracy, and cryptozoology. Modern "spooks" appear alongside the gods of the ancients, creating a mind-expanding pastiche that may either heal your soul, send you to the loony bin, or just keep you up all night as you ponder the meaning of its forbidden secrets.

For lovers of the Unknown. . .!

If you could sum up Our Haunted Planet in three words, what would they be?

Highly thought provoking

What other book might you compare Our Haunted Planet to, and why?

"Mysteries" by Colin Wilson. For me both writers present the facts in a straight forward and understandable way and without recourse to sensationalism

What about Michael Hacker’s performance did you like?

I particularly liked his calm but authorititive sounding narration - almost as if he had written the book himself.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

". . .the future, is in the past . . .!"

Any additional comments?

I've always been a fan of John Keel. His books are always well written and in a manner that shows a writer at one with his subject. He learned his trade in Journalism and though he does not sensationalise, he makes the story fascinating.
