  1. Is there any possibility of getting a PDF copy of “The Scareship Age”? I’m preparing a website that explores the man-made origins of UFOs (excluding all the nonsense like conspiracy theories – I’m a semi-professional aviation technology historian) and I’d like to explore the Scareships in greater detail. I can explain more about my background and my website when you contact me.

    Thanks
    Chuck
