DRAKE W Raymond  Gods and Spacemen in the Ancient East VG $5 A/B Sphere 1973 paperback, 240pp. In many parts of the world literature and legend preserve the tradition that supermen from the stars ruled and guided mankind in the distant past. This tradition tells of war waged in the skies with fantastic weapons, of cataclysmic upheavals leading to barbarism, and of a slow return to civilization under the aegis of spacemen worshipped as gods. Such are the author's startling conclusions based on research in the ancient East that has led him from the hanging gardens of Queen Semiramis at Babylon to the temple mysteries of Tibet. Original title: SPACEMEN IN THE ANCIENT EAST. ISBN [PB# 208 cosm]

FLINDT Max H. & Otto Binder  Mankind- Child of the Stars VG- reading crease, bookseller stamp to first page. $4 C/B Coronet 1976 paperback 272pp. This book is concerned with the strong possibility - almost a probability, In our measured opinions - that mankind on earth may have had superlntelligent ancestors from outer space. Man may therefore be a hybrid, partly of terrestrial origin, partly extraterrestrial. There exist an Incredible number of amazingly persuasive 'proofs' in support of this theory, which are duly presented in the pages ahead. We sincerely feel we have dramatic evidence - very nearly proof - that will hopefully make a never-to-be-forgotten impact on the mind of the reader. An impact that will even affect scientific opinion, eventually. Those proofs or evidence of the theory's validity will be found virtually everywhere around us - In our bodies, our brains and minds, our histories, our archaeological and anthropological pursuits, and in many other unexpected areas of the humanities and sciences. This book might well be titled On Tiptoe Beyond Darwin, for we have in reality 'extended Evolution beyond the limited scope of natural selection on earth, to an expanded concept that might be called Astro-Evolution or Evolution from the stars.'

Fingerprints of the Gods
A Quest for the Beginning and the End

Evidence pointing to extra terrestrial origin of humankind and their gods investigated through archaeology and mythology. In this work the author embarks on a quest for the whereabouts, nature and few surviving traces of a lost civilization that was destroyed long ago and obliterated from human memory long before any of the cultures of historical antiquity rose to prominence. While Hancock does not believe that this civilization was Atlantis, he taps into the same current of human yearning that has made the Atlantis myth such a powerful one, and mixes intellectual adventure with exacting physical exploration of dramatic and sometimes dangerous locations in his pursuit of the tantalizing hints and scraps of evidence that point to a great and unsolved mystery.

SITCHIN Zecharia 
The End of Days, Arnageddon and prophecies of the return.

Why is it that our current twenty-first century A.D. is so similar to the twenty-first century B.C.? Is history destined to repeat itself? Will biblical prophecies come true, and if so, when? It has been more than three decades since Zecharia Sitchin's trailblazing book The 12th Planet brought to life the Sumerian civilization and its record of the Anunnaki, the extraterrestrials who fashioned man and gave mankind civilization and religion. In this new volume, Sitchin shows that the End is anchored in the events of the Beginning, and once you learn of this Beginning, it is possible to foretell the Future. In The End of Days, a masterwork that required thirty years of additional research, Sitchin presents compelling new evidence that the Past is the Futurethat mankind and its planet Earth are subject to a predetermined cyclical Celestial Time. In an age when religious fanaticism and a clash of civilizations raise the specter of a nuclear Armageddon, Zecharia Sitchin shatters perceptions and uses history to reveal what is to come at The End of Days.

Secret Places of the Lion

Pertains to space gods who bring 'Golden Ages' to earth and the evidence for them. Conflates all the mysterious places in the world into a theory of Space Gods as founders and teachers of humanity. Includes a 'Reincarnational Pattern of Identities' being subsequent incarnations through history of the same 'beings', eg Tutankhamun=Merk (Venusian)=Aaron(brother of Moses)=Atahualpa=Dr Robert Browne( father of Congregationalism)! Some Christian emphasis in Jesus the Christ as the Keystone of spiritual hierarchy etc. Early traditions speak of the arrival of "radiant beings from heaven," self-sacrificing guardians of the human race who have reincarnated as pivotal figures in the panorama of human history to assist in the work of evolution. Secret Places of the Lion shows how these "great ones" have helped mankind for thousands of years, hiding their secrets in tombs, caverns, temple ruins, and catacombs. Posing as wanderers, they would declare universal wisdom and truth at certain periods of history when people were prepared to receive it; then they would withdraw for a time to see what was done with the new-found knowledge. Thus, the rises and plateaus of our cultural history emerged. Williamson was one of six people present when George Adamski met with a Nordic alien from Venus.
