I've put this down as sci-fi/fantasy, but there are a lot of people who claim this is more of a nonfiction book! People either love this book or hate it -- there's almost nobody in the middle!


Something landed in the New Mexico desert one night, near the small town of Roswell. The wreckage was unlike anything the reanchers and the townspeople had ever seen. Some claimed it was not of this earth. But whatever they believed, it transformed their lives forever. For twenty-four hours the news spread like wildfire. Then the government investigators arrived...and the news stopped....

This is an older copy. The pages have darkened a bit, but otherwise it's fine.

Whitney Strieber; host of his internet website :"Unknown Country" and
author of many books has written a fictious account of the event
known to the world as "The Crash at Roswell". In 1947 something did
crash near the Atomic Bomber Air Field at Roswell,New Mexico.The
first day it was said by the Air Force that the "Air Force had captured a Flying Saucer." The next day this news was changed to say
the crash was only a U.S. Air Force Weather Baloon!Strieber tells a
story of what MAY have really happened!

From Publishers Weekly
Strieber, author of Communion and Transformation , continues to write on the implications of UFO sightings in his new novel, a blend of fact and fiction. In 1989, ex-CIA agent Wilfred Stone entrusts his story and secret papers on a decades-long coverup to reporter Nicholas Duke. Will confesses his part in the conspiracy demanded by President Truman and the nation's combined intelligence agencies in 1947, when a spacecraft crashed near Rosell (N.M.) Army Base. Many people witnessed the event and swore to finding bodies of extraterrestrial victims and other phenomena at the site. The accounts were, however, officially debunked, as all similar phenomena have been. That's the gist of Strieber's very long, sensationalized story, which may create more dissension rather than believers in the mysterious sightings recorded since the 19th century. If Strieber's book proves anything, it's that the public is entitled to honest information on "foo-flights" and their implications. Preferred Choice selection; Troll Book Club alternate.
