The Book of Revelation by St John the Divine.  There was a man who knew where his towel was.

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

- Philip K. Dick.

Well that was a shaky re-introduction to the UFO subject.
There was really no startling insights if truth be told.
Just one groups life story that went from plain UFO spotting to a collective hallucation.
It was all about a series of contacts with Lenston an "alien" with stubble and moccasins.
But you've got to admire the groups togetherness and unity even when they lost touch.
Tbh it was more like a psychic thing than an alien visitation.
This Lenston wasn't actually spotted beside an UFO.
Tbh I'm going back to my ropy crime thrillers.

A Civil War: A History by Harry Hansen

There are three much venerated single volumes on the Civil War. This is one of them and the most unbiased of the lot.

The others are:

Ordeal By Fire: A Short History Of The Civil War by Fletcher Pratt

Battle Cry For Freedom: The Civil War Era by James M McPherson

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

Origin is a great piece of speculative fiction.
You've got the Annuraki who were originally humans.
They lived on Atlantis which turned out to be a spaceship.
So it launched off when a cataclysm struck the planet.
During their travels they couldn't find a planet so they had to stay where they are.
They evolved into the greys we know and love because of the lack of sunshine.
Later on they were trying to open a wormhole between them and CERN.
Presumably to release some flesh-eating plague but sparing a select group of powerful men.
It's this group that were trying through their chief enforcer called Eldridge to tie up loose ends.
However their opposition was a tribe of native Americans and a scientist.
The wormhole did open up but it was so damaged it ended up being a time portal.

I was reading 1984, but I've kind of been on hiatus with regards to reading the past week or so... I'll have to get back to it.

I'm reading the hilarious Bleak Expectations by Mark Evans and am dipping into Telling Dildrams and Talking Whiff Whaff by William Holloway.
