sfs-smWe have just published the third volume in Nick Redfern’s Secrets Series. The new volume is entitled Science Fiction Secrets: From Government Files and the Paranormal. It follows the two previous volumes in the series, Strange Secrets and Celebrity Secrets, and may be considered a little bit of both. The book deals with themes and topics at the intersection of science fiction, the paranormal, and UFOs that were often the subject of government and intelligence agency documents. It also deals with such people as Carl Sagan and Steven Spielberg, as well as Philip K Dick and other celebrity science fiction authors.

Among the questions Redfern seeks to answer in this book:

— Did the U.S. Government secretly assist Steven Spielberg in the production of his groundbreaking science fiction movies Close Encounters of the Third Kind and E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial?

— Why were special agents of the FBI so deeply interested in the life, career, and activities of science fiction author Philip K. Dick (of Blade Runner fame)?

— How did The X-Files spin-off series The Lone Gunmen anticipate months in advance the terrible tragedy of 9-11?

— Why was the top brass of the U.S. Air Force so secretly interested in, and concerned by, the UFO-related tales of a relatively anonymous 1950s science fiction movie-maker who died in poverty in the early 1980s?

— Did a nightmarish scenario presented in one of H.G. Wells’ novels prompt Soviet Premier Josef Stalin to clandestinely embark upon a secret and diabolical experiment designed to create a super race of monstrous, half-human half-ape soldiers?

— Has the military managed to successfully perfect human teleportation of the type that was most graphically and famously shown in Star Trek and The Fly?
