An Uncommon Life

October 17, 2011

David Huggins, who is the subject of Farah Yurdozu’s book Love In An Alien Purgatory: The Life And Fantastic Art of David Huggins, has been interviewed by Corey Armpriester for The Artblog. The interview deals not just with his abduction experiences but with his paintings as art. Perhaps most interesting, however, are the interviewer’s introductory remarks about Huggins: “I’m writing this piece not to give the impression that I know David is telling the truth, because I don’t know; I’m on the fence about all of this. I celebrate the world of ideas no matter how far out some of them may seem. Even if this is a made-up story from the mind of a delusional man, the power of the idea remains the same. Ideas are essential to the curious mind, and we as artists need not fear the ideas of other artists no matter how alien they sound. If David is indeed ‘crazy’ he’s in good company. Unusual ideas are almost always perceived as odd or askew until the common mind can make use of it. And as we all know artists are anything but common …” Read the full Artblog interview here.

Wilson, who is an abductee herself, says that it is David, “the artist-abductee, who brings the nitty-gritty of abduction to life in the pages of this fascinating, and at times, disturbing book.” The Hybrid Beings play a major role in an abductee’s life, notes Wilson, and “David’s case is no different in this respect. What is different about this book however, is the manner in which this interaction is relayed to the reader. It is explicit and it is very powerful… It was a bold decision of the author, as well as Anomalist Books, not to censor this information and I commend their decision. The images in this book demonstrate what a prominent occurrence of abduction is really like.” Wilson ends her lengthy review with these words: “Love In An Alien Purgatory is a beautifully illustrated story of the life of an alien abductee, presented by a leading authority of alien abduction and the paranormal. It is a book every serious student of alien abduction research should have in their library.”

liaap-smIt “must be one of the strangest UFO books ever written,” says Bob Girard of Arcturus Books. Or painted. He’s referring, of course, to Love in an Alien Purgatory: The Life and Fantastic Art of David Huggins, which contains a well-written text by Farah Yurdozu about David’s bizarre sexual contacts with the ETs, or whoever they are, and more than 80 of David’s paintings in full color that illustrate his contact experiences. A review of the book has also appeared at at UFO Mystic: “After a fine introduction from Farah that firmly sets the scene, that relates the history of Huggins’ experiences, and that allows us to understand what it is that drives and motivates the man himself, we see his story unfold before our eyes via a large body of very skilled artwork,” writes Nick Redfern, who calls the book “as intriguing and thought-provoking as it is unique and alternative.” And James Moseley of Saucer Smear, who “introduced” us to David Huggins and knows him well, had this to say after reading the book: “Interesting is the fact that, though most ‘experiencers’ have a specific spiritual, religious, or political agenda to push on you, David does not. He seems to live a normal life…He doesn’t claim to be a guru…Does David really believe all this, or is he putting us on for some reason? Our answer: He is absolutely sincere, but of course with no proof whatever…There are only two possibilities: Either David’s experiences are solely the product of his own imagination (i.e. they are purely ‘internal’), or they are caused by an outside source (i.e. an outside intelligence of some sort, apparently beyond our present understanding). We vote for the latter…David Huggins is a kind gentle sort of a man and good friend… [He] deserves to be taken seriously. Buy the damn book!” Then there’s UFO activist Larry W. Bryant who sums up his feelings on the book in two short words: “Huggins Rocks!”

liaap-smWe’re on an art-related  kick lately.  In June we released Budd Hopkins’ Art, Life and UFOs. In September we’ll be releasing Secrets of Dellschau and The Secret Art. But today we are announcing the publication of Love In An Alien Purgatory: The Life and Fantastic Art of David Huggins by Farah Yurdozu. In 1951, as young boy in rural Georgia, David Huggins claims he was visited and abducted by group of alien visitors from an unknown dimension. That contact continued over several decades and resulted in the birth of more than sixty hybrid children… and one of the most remarkable stories in all of UFO lore. Love in an Alien Purgatory is the startling pictorial account of David Huggins’ hidden life, as revealed in his own vivid and sometimes disturbing paintings. With commentary and text by UFO investigator Farah Yurdozu, David’s story takes the reader into a world between two dimensions: a purgatory of hope, sex, fear and, ultimately, love. This volume is special not only for its story but for its presentation. The book itself measures 8.5 by 11 inches and is in FULL COLOR, which means that you get to see 78 of David’s Huggins’ remarkable paintings in color, as well as 6 sketches he did in pencil. It’s a treat for the eyes, with mature content that will boggle the mind.
