"UFOs over Romania" - review by Brian Allan

For the most part, information on UFOs has originated in the West, specifically the USA, the UK and Europe and this new release from Flying Disk Press, owned by veteran Ufologist Philip Mantle, sets this rather skewed matter to rights. 

This new book concentrates on sightings of aerial anomalies from Eastern Europe and Romania in particular. However, what really makes this book stand out from the rest is the fact that the author, Dan D. Farcas PhD, does not shy away truly fascinating encounters that do not fall within the narrow, nuts-and-bolts paradigm of many Ufologists. Instead the author, in the manner of such luminaries as Jacques Vallee, John Keel and Graham Hancock, also considers the volume of material that falls into categories that defy all convention. 

The book keeps the nuts-and-bolts sightings and the close encounters of various kinds, (beginning with unlikely objects depicted in old paintings seen in some Romanian monasteries), in one section, then towards the end moves seamlessly on to the type of sightings that almost defies description. This is where Ufology and the paranormal appear to overlap and we discover beings that could be compared to angels and fairies plus, intriguingly, almost direct parallels with the Marian visions seen at Fatima in Portugal and Lourdes in France. 

Are these encounters with the ET’s, the supernatural, or with multidimensional entities using technologies we have only dreamed of? 

Wisely, the author leaves the reader to decide. Overall this is absolutely one of the best books of its type I have ever read and is a valuable source of vital reading and reference material for anyone with an open and enquiring mind.
