Well UFO's as most will tell you is a very deep and branching subject and lots of other paranormal activities/stories seem to intersect most ufo
stories at some point, so deciding what to read depends an awful lot on what you find the most intriguing aspect of the phenomenananana.
As for a book being older, it doesn't neccesarily mean that it isn't a good book or informative book...and to be quite honest most ufo books simply
contain rehashings of older cases most with "new evidence" which usually turns out to be just another unverifiable third hand account.
ANd of course every member who responds to this thread will most likely have a different book suggestion which will again emphasize the diversity of
the field and equally diverse approaches people take toward the subject.
Anyhoo, long babble short I'll tick off my favorite book which is Ivan T. Sanderson's "Invisible Residents" which again isn't a perfect book but
pretty good...and pretty old.
Amazon has copies and I think it has recently been reprinted so it shouldn't be hard to track down.
Jacque Valles "Passport to Magonia" is another one that I liked.
I also enjoy most things George Knapp writes. Not that i agree with all of his conclusions but he seems sincere to me, so I give him credit for
Also don't dismiss magazines and of course take most things you read in them with a grain of salt but NEXUS is a good publication as is FORTEAN
Old out of print magazines are also good sources if you can find them like ARGOSY and of course Mark Chorvinsky's (RIP) STRANGE magazine which really
did try to approach all things strange with a good deal of object skepticism.
Good luck and good hunting.
Also ATS threads can lead you to lots of good reading material, just peruse the subjects and youre sure to find something.
Edit to add: Nice Springer, I forgot about "Above Top Secret" and that is a goodin, but I would like to add (IMO of course) that sticking with
Timothy's older, less biased work is the best way to go...just sayin'...
