Nick does it again. His latest effort, For Nobody’s Eyes
Only, confirms that Mr. Redfern is a researcher/writer who digs deep into the
nether world of UFOs, the paranormal, and governments and comes up with
material and information that no one else has been able to gather or when they
do, misread that material and information.
Mr. Redfern not only finds the goods, he explicates those goods
also, which he does in this new book, where not only files (missing and
otherwise) about UFOs, military operations, and even celebrities are tortuously
sought and found or, at least remnants of them, clues as to their existence once
The book’s 217 pages are packed with unknown or little known
“facts” which anyone who likes to know what the hell is going on will find, not
only interesting but maddening too.
Nick Opens Part 1, What Secrecy Means, with a précis on Top
Secret designations and The Freedom of Information Act.
Part 2, UFOs, Alien, and Cosmic Conspiracies, Takes the
reader back to Roswell (yes), and other UFO mystery-missing files and
materials, including an intriguing story of a faked alien ( extraterrestrial)
invasion contrived by a man named Kenneth Goff.
Part 3, Files on Famous Faces, covers Marilyn Monroe,
Princess Diana, Watergate, Aleister Crowley (a minor obsession of Mr. Redfern’s
I think), and the government’s obsession (also) with Crowley (and Monroe too).
Part 4, Secret Government Projects, contains information
about “A Secret Space Program” and the dastardly government experiments on
humans, plus the controversial mind-games the CIA was (and is?) engaged in.
Part 5, Presidents, Politicians, and Powerful People, gets into
the JFK assassination and J. Edgar Hoover’s secret files, on everyone.
The UFO portion(s) of Nick’s book will be fodder for most of
you who visit here, but the other materials will lend support for whatever
conspiracy theory about Roswell and flying saucers you’ve heard and maybe
I found the notes on Australia’s lost UFO files [Page 62
ff.] to be particularly interesting as the files pertained to the Woomera
rocket facility in Australia, which factor into, as I see it, the (in)famous
Solway Firth “spaceman” photo from 1964, taken by Jim Templeton and covered
here, at this blog, rather extensively.
The book is so replete with details and stories that readers
have never really parsed that one has to grab the book for their “reference
The Bibliography is extensive, and the Index (usually a
rarity in such books) is vastly helpful. And there are photographs (of
documents and people), also a rarity in other books dealing with similar
