From The Library of Congress Bibliography of flying saucer/UFO material extant up to and including 1969.

Lynn E. Catoe once provided a complete Bibliography for The Library of Congress of UFO/flying saucer materials up to and through 1969.

I've culled listings from that Bibliography which have some connection to items we've discussed at this blog or which are so quirky that they need to be reviewed.

I'll place the mountain of material I think you might like or that which may lead you to obscure and/or well-known UFO reports and stories that you'd like to pursue, or heard about but don't remember the source.

This first installment (one of many to come) are listings of alleged abductions, but not the usual Alien Abductions that have taken hold in UFO lore.

These are early stories or accounts by people who think or say they were taken aboard a flying saucer and flown someplace bizarre or had a weird experience -- but, again, not the medical probe accounts or frightening reports  that are reported nowadays.

N.B. I have nothing more about the listings than what you'll find in them. You'll have to Google information from the listings to get details.

  • Thanks for posting the link; I look forward to reading any comments and seeing what else you have.

    Contactees? A fascinating cast of characters with stories that still interest a few folk today. I'm one of them.

    Buck Nelson is the one I'm most familiar with (in the list) and I admire the way he turned a child-like claim into something that drew 100s to his Space Conventions. He didn't get the crowds of Giant Rock, but still played a part in coalescing the sub-culture of the so-called Contactee Movement.

    Year after year and nobody seemed to question why his great big, bald alien spacedog Bo remained unseen. It sort of highlights the escapism that the crowd enjoyed; grown-ups could come together and suspend their disbelief for simple fun. I think it appealed to the inner child that still wanted to play tea-parties with imaginary friends or pretend they were intrepid explorers of the solar system.

  • Kandinsky:

    I've culled a bundle of these notations.

    More coming up -- landings. UFO power explanations, AF conspiracies, and many, many more.

    I found the list full of obscure, little-known events, sightings and ruminations.

  • "These are early stories or accounts by people who think or say they were taken aboard a flying saucer and flown someplace bizarre or had a weird experience -- but, again, not the medical probe accounts or frightening reports that are reported nowadays."

    This is a very telling point. So early on abduction stories could be classified as predominantly intelligent, benevolent entities that want to show us the wonders of the galaxy.

    Today's current stories evoke the unknown and fear that these entities now have more devious plans (pleasures?) in store for us thus proving that galactic sodomy laws maybe somewhat lax as compared to ours. Somewhere Freud is smiling.

    For some reason, we crave fear of the unknown...Fear will over rule rationality for the most part.
