Light Years: An Investigation Into the Extraterrestrial Experiences of Eduard Meier

Gary Kinder, Author Atlantic Monthly Press $0 (265p) ISBN 978-0-87113-139-3
Hired by a group of UFO enthusiasts, Intercep, a Phoenix industrial counter-espionage firm, conducted a three-year investigation into Swiss farmer Eduard Meier's claim that he had experienced 130 encounters with extraterrestrials from the Pleiades, beginning in 1975. Kinder (Victim: The Other Side of Murder, who conducted some 120 interviews in his own follow-up investigation and spent 13 weeks in Switzerland with Meier, notes, ""No case had ever offered so much evidence''daylight color photos and 8mm film of the Pleiadean ``beamships,'' sound recordings, landing tracks and metal samples.IBM research chemist Marcel Vogel, who examined a metal sample on a scanning electron microscope, comments here, ``With any technology that I know of, we could not achieve this on this planet.'' No scientist or lab researching the claim has discredited Meier, and no one can explain how a poor, one-armed farmer with a sixth-grade education could have fabricated such evidence. Kinder documents the reactions of various scientists and summarizes key events in the UFO controversy since 1947. He writes in a dispassionate manner that adds to the fascination of this unusual story wherein the incredible takes on credibility.
