The Flying Saucers Are Real

By Donald Keyhoe

The 1950 Book That Started It All

Rumored to be the inspiration for Fox Mulder of The X-Files, Donald Keyhoe delivers the results of his groundbreaking research in a style that is at once terse and businesslike, and imbued with a sense of wonder at the mysteries and possibilities he is confronting.

Keyhoe argues that aliens — whatever their origins or intentions — do not seem hostile, and have likely been surveilling the Earth for two hundred years or more, though Keyhoe writes that their “observation suddenly increased in 1947, following the series of A-bomb explosions in 1945.”

In the pulp tradition begun by Fawcett’s Gold Medal series, Gutter Books is proud to offer you Gold Medal’s seventh release, the stunning work of nonfiction that touched off everything we associate with the UFO phenomenon today—the widespread paranoia, the government disinformation campaigns, and the inevitable conclusion, for many people the world over, that UFOs exist and do not have an earthly origin.
