When the Texas town of Stephenville was hit by a wave of incredible UFO activity in January 2008, it wasn’t just the people of the area who quickly sat up and took notice of what was going on in the skies right above them. The local media caught wind of what was afoot, too. Then the story went national. And, following that, in no time at all, it was nothing less than global. The Lone Star State was subjected to a full-blown UFO invasion.
The U.S. military was soon caught up in the cosmic controversy, too – chiefly as a result of its curious and conflicting public statements on the affair. Key witnesses were interviewed on prime-time television shows. The UFO research community hadn’t seen anything like this in years; maybe decades, even.
And no wonder: there were, after all, reports of an absolutely huge UFO overflying the town of Stephenville, of attempts by the military to intercept the massive "mother-ship"-like craft, of frightened and traumatized witnesses, of dark government conspiracies, and even of none other than the highest echelons of the United Nations taking a secret and deep interest in what was happening in and around Stephenville.
From practically the day that the controversy kicked off, one man - more than any other - was at the forefront of trying to figure out what on earth was taking place in Stephenville. That man was a Texas-based UFO investigator named Ken Cherry, who, today, runs EPIC, the Extraordinary Phenomena Investigations Council.
As he dug into the mystery of Stephenville, Cherry quickly found himself plunged into a strange world filled with concerned eye-witnesses, insider whistle-blowers, tales of cover-ups and conspiracies, and accounts of secret groups studying acquired alien technology at classified installations across the United States. And that was just the tip of the extraterrestrial iceberg.
Although Ken Cherry has publicly revealed a great deal about what went on during those crazy days and nights of early 2008, he has not revealed everything; at least, not in the way that you might expect. Indeed, today, more than seven years after the incredible events at Stephenville occurred, Cherry has chosen to take a new and alternative approach to reporting on the case.
He has penned a work of fiction on the affair, one that makes for highly entertaining and thought-provoking reading. Taking this particular approach has allowed Cherry to use witness accounts, data from those aforementioned whistle-blowers, and a variety of never before seen data, without compromising his sources and their identities. It's an approach that works very well.
Keep all of the above in mind as you read Ken Cherry's book, which is titled Marc Slade Investigates: The Stephenville UFO, and that is available right now. This is a story that needs to be told, and it is one that demands to be told. And Ken Cherry has done exactly that, in a unique and alternative fashion that the UFO research community will likely find to be most intriguing.
It's a book that is part-science-fiction, part-thriller, and part-conspiracy saga, all rolled into one - and in a fine and skilful fashion. The story is fast-paced, and is filled with numerous twists and turns, characters that range from the shadowy to the sinister, and plot-lines that will keep you guessing until the final few pages.
As you read Marc Slade Investigates: The Stephenville UFO, keep in mind that truth is not just stranger than fiction; sometimes reality and fantasy are practically two sides of the very same coin. And there is more good news: there will be further Marc Slade Investigates books from Ken Cherry. Stay tuned.
