An exploration of the mysterious connection between owls and UFOs, in ancient myths and the present day contact experiences.
This is also a an odyssey of self-discovery as the author grapples with his own encounters. What plays out is a story of transformation with the owl at the heart of this journey.
A further exploration into the connection between owls and UFOs, both symbolic and literal. The book reads like a collection of short stories, each chapter telling a deeply personal story. The ancient folklore of the owl is still with us—and it's still changing people's lives.
I wrote about the most difficult time of my life as it was happening, and posted it on a blog. I’d been confronted with a chain of strange events that all pointed to one thing, and I was forced to ask myself, “Am I a UFO abductee?”
I started writing ten years ago as an attempt to answer that question.
It’s a wonderful book… because it's a book that advances us in consciousness—it advances us—it takes us from where we were before we started reading it to a new place in terms of understanding the close encounter experience. I can name, just on the fingers of one hand, the number of books that actually do that.

I get a strong sense that Mike Clelland was guided to write this by the UFO intelligences and I think the reader will get that. This is the first time I have seen this level of both a book and its author being inextricably linked to the phenomenon itself since Strieber and Communion. Communion was clearly more than just a book; I believe the phenomenon intended it to be written, published, and read on a large scale. I think Mike’s book is another example of this.
