Mirage Men by Mark Pilkington Covers UFO Manipulations


There are a lot of people who frequent the RU forums and the RU blog due to some of the conversations and emails we’ve uncovered by Ufology’s “usual suspects” – individuals that Bill Moore termed “the aviary” in the 1980s and who remain very focused and active in the field.

Research Into Scammer’s Inc.

There is a lot of speculation as to the motives of many of these men. There are conspiracy theories ranging from vast government disinformation campaigns to psychological research or even mental illness. Here at RU, we continue to accumulate information about their past and present activities, but the history is so deep and vast that collecting and sorting it out is quite a task.

One thing that does make the task easier is when fellow researchers, also studying this particular thread within Ufology, publish their own findings. For example, journalist Gus Russo wrote an interesting essay in 2007 that covered the gamut, but even Gus found himself left with more questions than answers.

The Publication of Mirage Men

Another upcoming publication by Mark Pilkington, titled Mirage Men, promises a great deal of insight as Mark details his efforts, alongside that of John Lundberg’s, as they interview these shadowy individuals and seek out answers amidst a sea of deception and manipulation.

As part of their investigations leading up to the publication of Mirage Men, Mark and John interviewed a number of folks, including even RU’s very own Stephen Broadbent who was interviewed on film. Much of the focus of their investigations were upon Rick Doty – and his photo appears prominently among the promotional materials…he clearly figures as a central character in the findings.

The book is slated for publication on July 29th, 2010, click the amazon link above and pre-order your copy. The link above is not an affiliate link – it goes directly to Amazon’s order page, so get your copy today!

Mirage Men Launch on July 29th

Mark’s blog has some great information and updates from the author himself!  Apparently there will be a launch event at the end of this month, on July 29th, near Russell Square tube in London. The event is open to the public and attendees will be treated to a “special preview of the [Mirage Men] film” – which, we are told, is a 10 minute clip from the interview with Rick Doty (of Serpo/MJ-12 hoax fame).

According to the publisher:

“As he crossed the US meeting intelligence agents, disinformation specialists and UFO hunters Pilkington was confronted with a dizzying array of ever more outrageous claims and counter claims. As a result he began to suspect that, instead of covering up stories of crashed flying saucers, alien contacts and secret underground bases, the US intelligence agencies had actually been promoting them all along. Meanwhile he has to deal with his own uncertainties, the suspicions of the UFO community and a partner who is starting to believe that conspiracy theorists might be right after all.”

The film should be interesting, but remember to take any conclusions with a grain of salt, unless of course there is solid evidence and supporting documentation to support it.

Best wishes and best of luck to our friend Mark Pilkington, and hopefully book sales will be brisk.
