The Vengeful Djinn

I received in the mail yesterday a copy of the new book from Rosemary Ellen Guiley & Philip J. Imbrogno, The Vengeful Djinn: Uncovering the Hidden Agenda of Genies.

So far, I have only had the opportunity to skim through the pages of the book, but it looks to be an excellent piece of work, and I'll be reviewing it at my Reviews blog, just as soon as I have read it.

But, there's one thing that I wanted to mention, as it's relevant (at least, I think it is!) to my Final Events book.

As I noted in Final Events, one of the people I interviewed was a certain Dr. Mandor, a distinctly creepy character who had much to say about apparent U.S. Government research suggesting that UFOs have demonic - rather than extraterrestrial - origins.

As I noted in my book (when it was published last September), Mandor - who had worked deep in the heart of the murky world of officialdom in the early-1980s - had a deep fascination, and maybe even an obsession, with Djinns. Indeed, I noted in my book how his unsettling apartment was packed with images and statues of such entities.

Well, it so happens that in The Vengeful Djinn there is a story of Philip Imbrogno's trip to Oman in 1995. During the course of the visit, Imbrogno had the opportunity to speak with a person described as "a teacher," who had apparently seen a Djinn, but who also had awareness that not only did the U.S. Government know of Djinns, but that they were also "trying to deal with them."

This sounds very much like some of the things related to me, and cited in Final Events, about how elements of the U.S. Government were supposedly trying to do "deals" - or, perhaps, near-Faustian pacts - with paranormal entities of a presumed demonic nature.

That Mandor was involved in this, and had an obsession with Djinns, leads me to wonder if the U.S. Government people Imbrogno's teacher was talking about in relations to Djinns were somehow connected to the people I interviewed for my book - including Mandor.

It will be interesting to see if further data surfaces on this issue.

Rendlesham Files "Missing"

Intriguing news coming out of the BBC demonstrates that certain UK Defense Intelligence Staff files relative to the infamous UFO event at Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, England in December 1980 are curiously "missing."

I have to wonder if the reason for this curious situation has anything to do with this, which ties-in with my Final Events book...

A Final Events Lecture

On Saturday, April 11, I'll be speaking about my Final Events book at the annual History, Haunts and Legends conference at Jefferson, Texas. Check out this link for all the relevant data on the location, time-tables, and speaker-list.

A Round Trip To Hell

Over at UFO Digest, Sean Casteel focuses his attention on the latest release from Tim Green Beckley - Round Trip To Hell In A Flying Saucer. Tim interviewed me extensively for the book about my own title on the reported links between Ufology and Demonology: Final Events.

If you're even remotely intrigued by such issues, you would be wise to secure a copy of Tim's book at the earliest opportunity, as it's packed with hard-to-find data on its subject-matter.

As soon as I have finished reading Round Trip... I'll be posting an extensive review right here.
