Publisher's Summary

Since the beginning of recorded time, mankind has been plagued by unknown forces and beings, baffled by archaeological phenomena, and haunted by the inexplicable accuracy - and inaccuracy - of prophecies and "visions." In the classic Our Haunted Planet, John A. Keel brings into chilling focus strange truths about the Earth and its mysterious inhabitants. Could an unseen, prehuman race have taken careful measures to remain hidden from surface dwellers? Are they still watching us from their secret hiding places, manipulating and misleading us, using us for their own entertainment, and controlling our actions?
Our Haunted Planet is an entertaining survey of anomalous "Fortean" events such as UFOs, enigmatic stone monuments, Men in Black, missing ships and aircraft, phantom radio broadcasts, teleportation, missing time, black magick, tulpas, angels, demigods, tricksters, and much more.
Unlike most ufologists, who settle on a literal interpretation of such phenomena, Keel is broad-minded and courageous enough to include all possibilities - including the impact of occultists and spies on the fields of ufology, conspiracy, and cryptozoology. Modern "spooks" appear alongside the gods of the ancients, creating a mind-expanding pastiche that may either heal your soul, send you to the loony bin, or just keep you up all night as you ponder the meaning of its forbidden secrets.

Keel's 2nd best work

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have been a John Keel fan since watching the Mothman Prophecies movie shortly after it was released in 2002. I found the movie to be extremely compelling, and when I read the book (both written format and audio), I became more and more intrigued by Keel's perspective of the unknown. Having downloaded most of his recently released works--largely the 3 Andy Colvin edited collective works, "Flying Saucer..", "Outer Limits", and "Searching for the String:, I was delighted to learn that "Our Haunted Planet" was now available. After listening to this book, I was astonished at the detail and conjecture that Keel lay out for his audience, and I consider this to be his best book, after, of course, MP.

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A--as this is a work of non-fiction.

Have you listened to any of Michael Hacker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Michael Hacker is a narrator PAR EXCELLENCE. I have listened to him on several of his Keel/Gray Barker books, most notably "Men In Black-The Secret Terror Among Us" by Barker. He has an almost other-worldly ability to elicit myriad emotions, conjuring up various images and character development with a technique that few can match. As usual, Michael's performance in this book it at the top of the list.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, but I found the combination of Keel's material and Hacker's narration to be an excellent combination--as I expected.

Any additional comments?

If you are a fan of conspiracy theory, alien agenda, or any other just plain weird stuff--pick this up. You'll find it entertaining, at the very least.

very thought provoking

This book definitely gets you to reconsider your stance on a lot of the weird stuff that is happening (and has happened) on our planet.
The weird gets weirder.

For lovers of the Unknown. . .!

If you could sum up Our Haunted Planet in three words, what would they be?

Highly thought provoking

What other book might you compare Our Haunted Planet to, and why?

"Mysteries" by Colin Wilson. For me both writers present the facts in a straight forward and understandable way and without recourse to sensationalism

What about Michael Hacker’s performance did you like?

I particularly liked his calm but authorititive sounding narration - almost as if he had written the book himself.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

". . .the future, is in the past . . .!"

Any additional comments?

I've always been a fan of John Keel. His books are always well written and in a manner that shows a writer at one with his subject. He learned his trade in Journalism and though he does not sensationalise, he makes the story fascinating.

very interesting and, thought provoking!

Although quite deep for bedtime listening I became fascinated in the amount of historical, geological and other factual information written in this book and, eagerly looked forward to each new chapter!
