            In Plain Sight: An investigation into UFOs and impossible science (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            An award-winning journalist investigates a story largely ignored by mainstream media but is right there, in front of our eyes Investigative journalist Ross Coulthart has been intrigued by UFOs since mysterious glowing lights were reported near New Zealand's Kaikoura mountain rang...es when he was a teenager. The 1978 Kaikoura sighting is just one of thousands described around the world since the 1940s, and yet research into UFOs has traditionally been seen as the realm of crackpots and conspiracy theorists. Then, in 2020, after decades of denial, the US Department of Defence made the astonishing admission that strange aerial and underwater objects frequently reported and videoed by pilots and tracked by sensors are real, unexplained and pose a genuine national security concern. Coulthart felt compelled to investigate, embarking on what has become the most confronting and challenging story of his career. Now the five-time Walkley Award winner presents his findings. Coulthart has spoken to witnesses, researchers, scientists, spies and defence and intelligence officials and insiders. Many are convinced we are not alone, while some have been investigating and utilising what appear to be extraordinary potential new technologies, including radical propulsion systems, leaving Coulthart convinced that the world is on the cusp of extraordinary technological breakthroughs and cultural revelations. Bizarre, sometimes mind blowing and always utterly fascinating, In Plain Sight uncovers a story that has largely escaped the radar of mainstream media coverage. And yet, as Coulthart argues, it's a story that's been there all along. Now it's time to see what's right in front of our eyes.

            An anthropological look at the UFO community, told through first-person experiences with researchers in their element as they pursue what they see as a solvable mystery--both terrestrial and cosmic. More than half a century since Roswell, UFOs have been making headlines once agai...n. On December 17, 2017, the New York Times ran a front-page story about an approximately five-year Pentagon program called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. The article hinted, and its sources clearly said in subsequent television interviews, that some of the ships in question couldn't be linked to any country. The implication, of course, was that they might be linked to other solar systems. The UFO community--those who had been thinking about, seeing, and analyzing supposed flying saucers (or triangles or chevrons) for years--was surprisingly skeptical of the revelation. Their incredulity and doubt rippled across the internet. Many of the people most invested in UFO reality weren't really buying it. And as Scoles did her own digging, she ventured to dark, conspiracy-filled corners of the internet, to a former paranormal research center in Utah, and to the hallways of the Pentagon. In They Are Already Here we meet the bigwigs, the scrappy upstarts, the field investigators, the rational people, and the unhinged kooks of this sprawling community. How do they interact with each other? How do they interact with anomalous phenomena ? And how do they (as any group must) reflect the politics and culture of the larger world around them? We will travel along the Extraterrestrial Highway (next to Area 51) and visit the UFO Watchtower, where seeking lights in the sky is more of a spiritual quest than a gotcha one. We meet someone who, for a while, believes they may have communicated with aliens. Where do these alleged encounters stem from? What are the emotional effects on the experiencers?

            A major new retelling of the Greek myths for a new generation, with original drawings by world-renowned artist Chris Ofili. Charlotte Higgins' spellbinding new collection will include all the most famous Greek myths, as well as many less well known but equally intriguing ones. He...re are stories of the creation, of Heracles and Theseus and Perseus, the Trojan war and its origins and aftermaths, tales of Thebes and Argos and Athens. There are stories of love and desire, adventure and magic, destructive gods, helpless humans, gender-shifting characters, resourceful witches, and the origins of birds and animals. Taking her cue from Ovid, Charlotte Higgins has an intriguing structural device to thread her stories together. Inspired by the many moments in Greek myths in which women are seen to weave stories on to textiles (such as Helen of Troy in Homer, and Arachne and Minerva in Ovid), the tales will be told as if they are scenes in the act of being woven on to textiles by women. And, while not operating as an explicitly feminist retelling, this will add a new dimension to her myths, bringing women narrators and characters into the foreground. Above all, Charlotte Higgins' Greek Myths will be an original work of literature and scholarship by an exceptionally talented writer. It will be book to be enjoyed as a work of art, a source to be consulted, a present to be given, and an object to keep and treasure.

            Paul Hill was a well-respected NASA scientist when, in the early 1950s, he had a UFO sighting. Soon after, he built the first flying platform and was able to duplicate the UFO's tilt-to-control maneuvers. Official policy, however, prevented him from proclaiming his findings. I wa...s destined, says Hill, to remain as unidentified as the flying objects.
