UFO Connection - Non-fiction Account of Alien Intervention

the incredible premise which will stretch credibility for many
readers, Elvis UFO Connection is a well written book
which interrelates little known aspects of the Elvis story with
published research on UFO intervention in modern times, principally
alien adductions of human beings.
the world of Elvis literature there are two obscure
titles involving Elvis and UFO's. One is the mysteriously
titled Elvis The UFO by Aileen Bringle, and the
other Elvis UFO Connection Non-fiction Account of
Alien Intervention by Richard Daniel. It is this
latter book which is the subject of this review.
prepared, Elvis UFO Connection is a very different
Elvis book! The author(s) pose the question:
Elvis consciously aware of repeated and continual abduction
by alien beings?
if valid, does this strange intervention explain and
shed new light on Elvis' controversial private life
and his meteoric rise to stardom?
support the theory, the author uses little known, almost
obscure facts and reports documented in the Elvis legend.
themes expressed in Elvis UFO Connection will instantly
appeal to those with a knowledge of Ufology while for those
not so inclined will probably read like a fanciful fairytale.
However, our world is a strange place at times and there are
many well documented unusual occurrences that defy belief
and rational explanation.
is a logical structure to the arguments presented in the book
and many interesting and challenging themes. The significance
of an apparently insignificant piece of clothing is but one
key in the Elvis UFO mystery story as are important events
in the life of Gladys Presley.
UFO Connection provides the reader with a solid introduction
to serious enquiry about alien abductions, and by interweaving
seemingly unimportant and usually overlooked incidents in
the lives of Elvis and Gladys, offers a unique perspective
on, and answer to the eternal question: why Elvis?
the author: "Richard Daniel" is actually two people, representing
the combination of their first names: Richard Vaculig and
Elvis UFO Connection, the authors borrow heavily from
Elaine Dundy's seminal work, Elvis & Gladys, and also from
UFO pioneers such as Brad Steiger, Whitley Streiber and astrophysicist,
Dr. Jacques Vallee.
While it is easy to dismiss Elvis UFO Connection as another
far-fetched tale designed to cash in on the Elvis legend,
it is actually a seriously written book with a cogent, if
incredible, premise. Part mystery, part biography, part documentation
of alien abductions, Elvis UFO Connection challenges common
preconceptions about the Elvis story and is worth reading
even if you don't believe.
Elvis UFO Connection is extremely hard-to-find. In the past
two years only one copy has been listed by a book dealer (and
was sold at US$60.00), and to EIN's knowledge no copies have
been listed on ebay.
