I am either very brave or very stupid by starting this thread I can't quite decide which but what I do believe is that it is in the right place, ie
Skunkworks until proven otherwise.
So the subject matter is a man called Charles Hall he has written 4 books that I know of and I have read 3 of them... I know strike one against him he
is selling books, the books are titled Millenial Hospitality, The world we knew, The Road Home and After hours.
Perhaps you could look on this as a mini book review, although I confess it has been 3 years since I read them and I know I run the risk of appearing
to be promoting them just by starting this thread but that is not my intention.
Here is a synopsis from each book.
"Charles James Hall was a weather observer in the United States Air Force and was stationed at Indian Springs, Nevada in the mid-sixties. He worked
on memoirs in his spare time for over 18 years. He expected to leave his memoirs to his grandchildren. When his wife, Marie, discovered his detailed
accounts of the terrifying experiences he had with extraterrestrials over a two year period, she convinced him that the grandchildren could just as
easily read his stories after he published them.
In the first book of what Marie decided would become the Millennial Hospitality series, we see what an especially confusing, denial filled existence,
Charles weathered. He was never briefed, not before, during, or after his extraordinary journey into uncharted territory. In order to convince Charles
that it would be okay to publish this ground breaking saga, Marie suggested that he change the names of his friends and places. Notwithstanding the
disclaimer in front of the book, everything in the books is true and happened to Charles James Hall"
The World We Knew
"The second book in the Millennial Hospitality series continues Charles James Hall's account of his true experiences with the extraterrestrial
people, Charles calls the Tall Whites. This captivating book reads like a novel and does not attempt to prove the existence of extraterrestrials . It
provides an etiquette book for the 21st century."
The Road Home
"Millennial Hospitality III - The Road Home contains the most terrifying incident of all. The Road Home contains accounts of Airman Hall's year in
Vietnam, just prior to his return to civilian life. The chapter, "Yes", gives the true account of how Airman First Class Kenneth E. Baker, enlisted
from La Porte, Texas, died to save Charles' life. The appendix contains Charles's previously copyrighted paper, Hall Photon Theory."
"Book four in the Millennial Hospitality series is a bit different from the previous three in that it no longer disguises place names. In addition to
Charles James Hall's now familiar style of accounting of his true experiences with extraterrestrials, whom he calls the Tall Whites, After Hours has
a section on credible updates, answers to frequently asked questions, and additional writing about Hall Photon Theory."
So what we have here is just another fantastical account about aliens, another anecdotal story with little to no evidence at all and I was fully aware
of that when I bought the books but I thought I would read them and consider them as just another sci-fi novel.
Unfortunately the literary quality and style of the author was in my opinion terrible and to compound things he did like to beat his own drum as every
incident whether connected with aliens or not was a triumph to his intelligence, bravery or just being an alround mr nice guy and one thing I value
most in people is a little modesty so you can imagine I was
What is different about this story that seperates it from every other tale told about aliens I have come across is it is not Grey obssesed and these
aliens, although there was a dark side to them, had a dry sense of humour liked to go clothes shopping and having fun in Vegas so not the usual anal
probing adductors or profoundly benevolent type that wants to teach us how to save the planet, their technology was less then perfect too, for
instance the craft they use sometimes broke down and they had children that behaved, well like children.
You might ask then why I bought the next 2 books, well I suppose like a lot of people I wanted to know how it ended and that's exactly what I did and
for a long time, well 3 years to be precise, I just forgot about it, but then I started to
ponder on the guys psychology.
What crossed my mind is he sates that he was originally writing this as an autobiography for his grandchildren to read and I thought if this was me
would I deliberatly lie to my grandchildren in fact how many people out there would lie to their grandchildren, that would be a pretty cruel thing to
do wouldn't it and it is not something you could change your mind about later either because it is out there now in black and white.
Well I suppose it could be a future gravy train for his children and grand children but I do not think a very reliable one and what is the price of
sincerity to a future generation if money is worth more then truth.
What is my opinion ?, frankly I just don't know but as you see it did make me stop and think a little longer about Mr Hall.

Analysis of the background to Charles Halls books
Map of area where the encounters take place
Investigations conducted to corroborate Charles Hall testimony so far indicate that Charles has stuck closely to the actual events and personnel
described in his series of books. The three witness testimonies and the Las Vegas Review journal all offer independent confirmation for various
aspects of Hall's testimony. This provides independent evidence that Charles Hall's claims about the Tall Whites being based on a secure and
isolated military facility on Nellis Air Force base are worth serious consideration by researchers into the UFO phenomenon and exopolitics
