Sky Creatures: Living UFOs

by Trevor James

Constable, Pocket Books, 1978

252 pages

Sky Creatures presents the rather unique thesis that UFOs are not machines but are themselves living organisms. This book makes for difficult reading. Some of it is based on the theories of Austrian occult writer Rudolf Steiner and controversial psychologist Dr. Wilhelm Reich. Both Steiner and Reich were individuals with reputations for strange theories. I was not convinced by the evidence presented in Sky Creatures. Although it is worth noting that both Kenneth Arnold and British statesman Lord Louis Mountbatten speculated that UFOs could be animals native to our atmosphere and not machines. There are several pages of photos that supplement the text to this book with a different perspective.
