nonfiction please. Mine is Communion, and Budd Hopkins Witness, which scared the crap out of me. I read that one in a day, very scary.  I just ordered another book from Whitley Strieber called communion 2. Any thoughts? Do you all think the guy is crazy?

I've read a few Whitley Strieber books but none of his nonfiction. I take it he believes in life beyond our own. Is that crazy???? Nope!!!

From the little I read and the enthusiastic endorsement of a friend, I'd go with this one: Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind.

I'm a big fan of the Mothman Prophesies - similar to alien books, if not identical.  Mass hallucination and hysteria are such an under appreciated influence on the culture.
