Strieber’s novel THE GRAYS is in bookstores and Amazon.com now.
The book, which Strieber calls fact-based fiction, reflects his exploration of the visitation to Earth by mysterious beings and their contact with and abduction of humans.
It is not new territory for him – he has dealt with these elements in his personal life and in many books on these subjects.
The deep and complex missions of these visitors and their complicated relationships with humans are topics Strieber addresses in his new book.
He delves into the secret activities of our government and military in their attempts to cope with and coordinate these developments.
Characters in the book include high-ranking U.S. military officers and a military “empath” who communicates with an alien in U.S. custody. The conflicts and choices facing military and government insiders and factions dealing with these issues are also examined.
Some characters are seemingly average people who find themselves in the midst of strange and vast plans involving these visitors and our government.
A triad of aliens called “the Three Thieves” and their secret work in a small Kentucky town are also part of the story.
Readers join Strieber’s characters in discovering surprising and even shocking aspects of secrets stretching back through our history – and equally important indications for our future.
TRUTH THROUGH FICTION
In his July 27 journal entry on the Web site UnknownCountry.com, a site run by Strieber and his wife Anne, he describes fascinating aspects of the processes that went into writing THE GRAYS.
Strieber had addressed the issues of his own alleged contact with apparently extraterrestrial or extra-dimensional beings in his non-fiction book COMMUNION and several subsequent non-fiction works.
However, Strieber reports in his online journal that he concluded the fact-based fiction approach he took in his previous novel MAJESTIC provided the best way to communicate his understanding of these kinds of highly unusual phenomena.
MAJESTIC examined the circumstances and events surrounding the alleged “Roswell Incident,” the reported 1947 recovery of a crashed spacecraft or UFO and crew in New Mexico by U.S. Army Air Corps personnel stationed at the nearby air base.
That novel traced the reactions to this event of the post-World War II Truman administration, our military and elements of the U.S. intelligence community. The book also explored some of the other developments and discoveries that resulted.
Interestingly, for his new book, Strieber states that fiction allows him to “communicate subtle, hidden things.” He says he intends that THE GRAYS will help readers understand the overall phenomena and their own experiences.
HIDDEN MESSAGES, DEEP SECRETS
“I've learned a lot about the way the contact experience works, and how it works in the human mind, including how and why we hide it from ourselves,” Strieber writes in his journal.
“So when people who have had experiences and don't remember it read these chapters, their memories will be triggered by the associations that I have embedded in them. I know quite certainly that this will work, and that it will happen.”
“And it fits one of the central objectives of the mission I have undertaken in my life, which is to help people come into contact with memories from their own lives that are so strange that their minds have buried them,” Strieber says.
He claims that his new novel may evoke memories from those who have seen but “forgotten” unusual incidents. “This will work for close encounter witnesses, too,” he writes.
“The book is designed to reconstruct associations that have been broken by fear and by the action of the visitors. While reading and living the emotional journey of the characters, it is my hope that you will discover hidden parts of your own journey that have the same flavor.”
DIFFERENT VISITORS AMONG US
Strieber states that his first real-life contact was with the short, large-headed and large-eyed beings commonly known as “the Grays.”
He also claims that he has had contact with another group, also frequently reported, usually referred to as “the Blonds” or sometimes “the Nordics,” a handsome human-appearing race.
Strieber and others have reported that these two groups have different motives, agendas and methods of operation regarding their interest in Earth and the human race.
When having contact with a member of the Blond group, Strieber says, “He described his reasons for distrusting and disliking the Grays in the most vivid terms possible.”
“He also said that we must not make the mistake of trying to fight them, or we'd end up in the state his people are in, locked in an eternal war that they can neither win nor end.”
In his journal entry, Strieber writes about the role of human and “alien” DNA, which has frequently been referenced in literature about alleged abductions of humans and biological procedures conducted on them.
He says his book “will cast the whole DNA-theft thing in a completely different light as well.” According to Strieber, “The grays do take DNA, and for a lot of reasons, one of which involves making bodies that are exactly like the bodies of those from whom it has been taken.”
OPEN SOURCE INTELLIGENCE
If Strieber’s new novel is as thought-provoking and insightful as COMMUNION, MAJESTIC and his other books on these subjects, readers are sure to gain valuable information and intelligence about possible scenarios involving extraterrestrial visitation.
According to many credible sources, these topics are not just matters for “UFO nuts,” but rather an urgent and important challenge for all of us.
THE GRAYS looks to be another valuable addition to the vast array of non-fiction and fiction books and films on these topics.
Strieber’s efforts and those of many others continue to share previously secret information with us, transforming classified reports into what is called open source intelligence or OSINT – that is, information available to all of us.
Through the OSINT that is being actively released and revealed at this point in time, Americans and the people of our planet can become more prepared for the challenges that face us now and in the future.
