The Eighth Tower by the late John Keel is the most astute analysis of the paranormal, and UFOs in particular, that I have ever read.

The Eighth Tower by the late John Keel is the most astute analysis of the paranormal, and UFOs in particular, that I have ever read. It ranks up their with such classics as Keel's earlier work, Operation Trojan Horse, and Jacques Vallee's Passport To Magonia. Keel hits a homerun out of the ball park with his theory of the Superspectrum and its connection to UFO, alien, and paranormal phenomena.

The Eighth Tower book. John Keel's disturbing follow-up to THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES! Is there a single intelligent force behind all religious, occult, and UFO phenomena? Strange manifestations have haunted humans since prehistoric times. Beams of light, voices from the heavens, the "little people," gods and devils, ghosts and monsters, and UFOs, have all had a prominent place in our history and John Keel's disturbing follow-up to THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES!

The Eighth Tower (1975). Why Ufos (1978) (reprint of Operation Trojan Horse). The Best of John Keel (Paperback 2006) (Collection of Keel's Fate Magazine articles). Flying Saucer to the Center of Your Mind: Selected Writings of John A. Keel (2013).

Keel's Follow-up book, The Eighth Tower, was also released in 1975. The book was comprised of reworked material that was left out of The Mothman Prophecies and delves further into Keel's ideas and possible explanations. In the 1980s, he attempted a number of plays and novels, none of which made it to the page or the stage. In other words, he did not think that UFOs were from other planets and he was completely against this notion.

Keel's books are always fun to read, but only if you're willing to suspend disbelief. Still, if you want a fun read, The Eighth Tower is a good one! Keel is a great popularizer of paranormal fiction.

The Eighth Tower by the late John Keel is the most astute analysis of the paranormal, and UFOs in particular, that I have ever read. It ranks up their with such classics as Keel's earlier work, Operation Trojan Horse, and Jacques Vallee's Passport To Magonia. Keel hits a homerun out of the ball park with his theory of the Superspectrum and its connection to UFO, alien, and paranormal phenomena. Over the years I have come to understand that UFOs and aliens are not "extraterrestrial" as most believe, but indigenous to the Earth. In this book Keel offers definitive proof, in my opinion, that it is an earthbound phenomena which has interacted with humans in one way or another since the dawn of time.

Great concept. To go beyond the idea of ETs as simply from another physical place removed from us by distance, and conjecture that maybe they are from somewhere that's inaccessible to us; a different dimension completely, which would go a long way to explain their apparently impossible-according-to-our-physics-model abilities.

John Keel is by far my favorite researcher of High Strangeness, and for a long time this book was my holy grail. I looked for it in used bookstores all over the country, since online it was prohibitively expensive, because I felt like it might be the master key to tie together Keel's theories about UFOs, cryptozoology and Fortean phenomena. When I finally found a library that would Interlibrary Loan it to me, I was thrilled; and then I read it, and remember thinking that if I'd paid 300 dollars for it (the going price for a paperback copy on Amazon at the time) I would have been terribly disappointed.

I hadn't thought of the book in years, but a few weeks ago I looked it up randomly on Amazon and saw to my delight that it had been reprinted so I ordered a new copy. There are issues with the book of course…expect the usual amount of typos that come when an older book is re-printed, and it has not been revised in any way (obviously, since it is posthumous) so some of the material is dated. Keel's idea of the technological dystopia we should all have been living in by the year 2000 is particularly funny.

But overall…it is worth re-reading, and worth having in your collection if you are a Keel fan, a Fortean seeker, or just someone who likes to speculate about what the heck might be going on on this creepy mudball of ours. I would recommend reading it just before or just after reading Our Haunted Planet, because Keel's later book definitely contains a more focused theory than the Eighth Tower does. I almost feel that, since the Eighth Tower was a book Keel put together with material cut from the Mothman Prophecies, Our Haunted Planet was his later attempt to present the same material in a more coherent way after even more research. There is different material in each book, though, and connecting the dots between the two is very interesting.

There are no easy answers. No book on the subject is going to spell out exactly in 100% certain terms the truth about Fortean phenomena and the world we live in. The book raises more questions than answers because there just ARE more questions than answers at this point. Also, keep in mind that Keel is the Fortean Hunter Thompson, and that many of the things he says are sarcastic digs at those he refers to as "cultists", or attempts to illustrate how easy it is to create a new "devil theory" just by writing in in a book (like his discussion of the Black Stone in the Ka'aba). Lots of times his tongue was firmly in his cheek, which is part of why I love him but might not be everyone's cup of tea.

I'm glad that I added this book to my Keel collection. After being out of print for so long, it's nice to finally own a copy.

John Keel's writing is always provocative and mind stretching. This book gives you a lot to think about, if you are interested in the topic of UFOs. I found the various connections he makes in UFO data intriguing and making good sense. A good read for those who are not familiar with John Keel's work.

Read this for a new perspective on UFOs. John Keel was the most vocal and high profile proponent for the ultra terrestrial hypothesis which conjectures that UFOs have been with us for thousands of years. According to the book, UFOs are a paranormal phenomena. A 1970 volume republished in 2004 because the conclusions are still germane to the UFO issue. Be prepared for numerous typos. Some of the conclusions and assertions have been rendered moot by events since publication.

A classical book about the paranormal. Keel shows that what we see of the univers is just a small part of a superspectrum.

I was expecting more zaniness, and less of a review of well trodden examples of quixotic phenomena! there is some heretical speculation, entirely unique to Keel, but it was too sparse. ?
Another great addition from the walking twilight zone himself! Well worth the read. Also — Credit card predictions were incredible!
