Intruders: The Incredible Visitations at Copley Woods

Budd Hopkins, Author Random House (NY) $3.99 (223p) ISBN 978-0-394-56076-2
Hopkins, who uses hypnotism in interviewing UFO abduction claimants, argued in his first book, Missing Time, that UFO aliens had inserted implant devices in several children. Here, after researching 125 supposed abductions, he reports on ""the apparent interbreeding of an alien species with our own.'' During hypnotic sessions, men have told of being raped by alien females and women have related experiences interpreted by Hopkins as ova-retrieval and artificial insemination. The book's key case involves Kathie Davis, a 28-year-old Indianapolis mother who described under hypnosis multiple abductions and gynecological operations, and the investigation here extends to the UFO experiences of her children, relatives and friends. Hopkins's disarming manner as he leads the reader through the steps of his research adds credibility to the science-fictional aspects of this account. True or not, the author's speculations equal the excitement generated by his earlier book.
