Top Paranormal Book of 2010!

"The late Mac Tonnies provides a "meditation" on the idea that at least some of the UFO occupants generally thought of as aliens from other planets might actually be from right here on Earth. Perhaps these beings have evolved alongside us, or long before us, and have moved their civilization out of sight, perhaps underground. Perhaps they even walk among us all the time. It's an interesting hypothesis that has been kicking around for awhile, but Tonnies puts the idea into coherent form to explain the often odd behavior and activity of these beings today and throughout history."

Patrick Huyghe, author and publisher at Anomallst Books, announced last month - and somehow I missed this - that Mac Tonnies' The Cryptoterrestrials: A Meditation on Indigenous Humanoids and the Aliens Among Us was voted #1 on Stephen Wagner's (, Paranormal Phenomena) list of "Top Paranormal Books of 2010"!!!

Also mentioned on the Anomalist's (Mac Tonnies-dedicated) news page is this review found in Australia's Living Traditions Magazine. Here's the intro:

"The Cryptoterrestrials is written in a succinct and engaging style condensing an immense amount of research. The author clearly has obviously studied the field for many years and digested vast amounts of information before coming to some startling conclusions. It is also beautifully illustrated and nicely presented."


Lastly, quoted in a previous post on the Anomalist page is a review of Mac's book by Paul Kimball. I mention it here because Paul has been posting some quotes of Mac's on his blog, The Philosopher King recently, in a series of "Thought du jour(s)", with some photos of Mac you may not have seen, so pay the page a visit and keep scrolling down.

Update: To open the currently existent posts up in separate pages for future reference, here's a recap from earliest to most recent: Sept. 15 - Sept. 27 - Set. 29 - Sept. 30 - Oct. 4 - Oct. 5 - Oct. 8 - Oct. 9 - Oct. 10.
