Originally published by Dell back in 1971, then entitled Haunted Lovers, this book is a thought-provoking case by case review of innumerable documented instances wherein departed loved ones have reportedly violated the conventional laws of time and space and reappeared to lovers and loved ones. Brad Steiger, while exploring in earnest the evidence that such case histories are proof of continued contact from beyond the grave, also exercises intellectual honesty as well by repeatedly offering up alternative explanations from psychological (wish fulfillment, for example) to extrasensory perception. With the ESP aspect the theory is that at the moment of death, when many of these occurrences are in fact reported and there was no normal way for the witness to have known of the departed persons passing, the witness may have instead processed a telepathic signal from the departed instead of a spirit visitation.
Nonetheless, as you continue to read story after compelling story of men and women from all walks of life who have described such paranormal encounters, you are struck by the massive weight of evidence that has been accumulated and how strongly that evidence indicates that, whatever the precise definition of such experiences mean, it seems fairly clear and obvious that there is a part of us that is not always restricted or limited by the known laws of time and space, or this so-called physical universe. Furthermore, the primary component or factor that seems to be involved in the activation of this inexplicable psychical force is the very pure and fundamental emotional element that cements and fulfills all human relationships, and that is this well-known and much talked about thing called love.
This book also delves into case histories that are even more controversial than those described in the two previous paragraphs. For example, seductive aliens from UFOs, as well as UFO beings who reportedly interrupted couples who were having intercourse, in one alleged incident taking hair samples of the female while in another case milking the male of his semen into a metallic container, as well as cases of sexual molesters from the other side.
The scope and depth of this book covers a wide range of subject matter that is seldom addressed in other books dealing with the paranormal. Though it originally came out some 38 years ago, this book’s contents remain just as relevant today as they were when first published back in 1971.
Gravitational Manipulation of Domed Craft: UFO Propulsion Dynamics

This book takes a thorough survey of the UFO literature in search of any detailed descriptive information that might help to shed light on the possible science and technology behind the presumed propulsion systems providing the incredible powered flight capabilities of the mysterious alien craft reported by thousands of credible eyewitnesses worldwide. There is even a Foreword by well-known abductee Betty Ann Luca, in addition to the use of many of her detailed artistic renderings and testimonial descriptions of alien technology that she described in her indepth hypnotic regression sessions.
The author provides lavish graphics and illustrations that help to explain his theories, as well as an abundance of science-based theory and speculation to make comprehensible how these alien technologies and propulsion systems could actually work. Potter explores the possible energy dynamics of the UFOs, offering up theories as to how they may generate attractive and repulsive gravitational forces, how they may even alter their physical dimensions, how advanced acoustics and knowledge of the vibrational structuring of matter may allow the creation of “bridging-holes” in which, for example, alien beings may enter and exit a home through solid walls, the multi-functioning arrangement of the electro-mechanical system of UFOs, to name but a few of the scientific areas explored in this intriguing and lengthy volume.
So for those scientific thinkers and mad scientist tinkerers, here’s over 500 pages with over 300 research papers cited, for which you can nose dive into the nitty gritty of this subject and theorize and tinker away to your heart’s content. Who knows, perhaps this is the book that will drive someone who is scientifically insightful and technically capable into a major revolutionary breakthrough that will be out of this world! (Yeah, a little pun is intended. Sorry about that!)
