WooHoo :sk

Three old books on the unexplained have just come my way,

1.  The Ghosts Companion - Peter Haining:
    A book that is written by famous authors that have had ghost encounters and have fictionalised their encounters.

2.  Uninvited Visitors - Ivan T.  Sanderson:
    Has our planet been visited throughout hiistory by intelligent beings.

3.  UFO, Flying Saucers Over Britian - Robert Chapman:
    A case book of UFO sightings over Britain up to 1969 when the book was published.

All three were published around the same date.

We do what we do because of who we are. If we did otherwise, we would not be ourselves.
