Editorial Reviews

"One man spent 40 years amassing the most comprehensive - and strangely beautiful collection of UFO books around. And now he's sharing it with the world." - Sweet


"Jack Womack's fascinating research of flying saucers say more about human beings than visitors from beyond....Womack celebrates a plurality of beliefs overlapping, some competing, some desperate, but all of them - especially the tales of grey aliens - thoroughly human." Ryan Britt


Your coffee table needs this lavish collection of retro UFO pulp fiction art - Vice


In his 1956 book, 'The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects,' Edward J. Ruppelt, former head of Project Blue Book, examined all the evidence and concluded that further study of UFOs would be a complete waste of time. Oh, ye of little faith! The very existence of the Womack collection demonstrates incontrovertibly that UFOs are, if nothing else, the stuff that dreams are made of. Keep watching the skies! - The Washington Post


"Now it can be told. Life on this planet will never be exactly the same." - Jonathan Lethem, author of A Gambler's Anatomy and The Fortress of Solitude
