Riveting evidence pushes boundaries of reality: Marden-Stoner book blends personal testimony and theories

Kathleen Marden is the Dr. Ruth Westheimer of alien abduction. Packed neatly into this manuscript, Marden and co-author Denise Stoner take us up close with the latest on abduction data wonderfully weaved into the story of two American women plagued with unusual interruptions in their daily routine from sources unknown. The authors professionally question themselves along the journey as they poke and prod beyond the main witnesses revealing compelling physical and testimonial evidence that a non-human intelligence might be visiting, borrowing, probing and returning multiple humans worldwide on a regular basis. They admit that more questions than answers are raised, but then allow the reader this unusual glimpse into how the two women discovered and are dealing with a very real problem of unusual proportions.

Marden was immersed into the alien abduction arena by birth – aunt and uncle Betty and Barney Hill are icons in the subject area based on their widely told 1961encounter along a lonely stretch of New Hampshire highway. Books and films have described their incredible story. Marden followed with the 2007 release of Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience: The True Story of the World’s First Documented Alien Abduction (New Page Books) with co-author Stanton T. Friedman.
Stoner has gone on to investigate UFOs with MUFON first as a Florida State Section Director and Chief Investigator and currently as Florida Assistant Director of Abduction Studies.

The idea of alien abduction is taken to a new level in this latest work where the boundaries of reality are pushed along with riveting evidence suggesting multiple perspectives are required for a complete analysis. The authors bring both hard and soft evidence to the table and wonder how we relate it all together. The evidence is there, they suggest, but we move cautiously forward in the analysis while we question every step.

The witness realty that investigators continue to battle suggests we are dealing with a non-human intelligence. The rest of the story is conjecture until more of the puzzle is brought to the table. The most frightening reality is that we ignore the evidence that something must be studied at all.
The two main characters in this new work – including co-author Denise Stoner – are individuals who have experienced alien abduction over many years and both have rich testimony to reveal.
The work includes a visual tone where the reader is allowed even the smallest details along the way that paint an elaborate living set. We get the feeling from the beginning that these are good people from hard working families who did not choose their circumstances.

They in fact were plucked from their reality and seemingly moved about in space and time in ways no one can quite understand. As readers, we stand with the authors in awe of this awkward moment in human history where multiple witnesses seem to tell similar stories of capture and removal and probing and then a return to the human setting.

Marden is humble despite her extensive professional background, merely stating the known facts and seamlessly matching circumstances with a larger group from the Marden-Stoner “Commonalities Among Abduction Experiencers” study. For the reader new to both alien abduction and UFOs, the authors offer an easily digestible review of how UFOs have been studied by the U.S. that is widely seen to have moved from a public gallery to a secret, underground phase without public comment.

The authors are clear that multiple theories abound inside and outside the scientific community. To even admit these experiences are real just to begin to study them is equivalent to opening up a Pandora’s Box of problems. While Americans were wide-eyed on UFOs early on in the 20th Century, the subject quickly moved to a mockery where good witnesses feared both ridicule and losing their professional stature.

While the authors advise readers on the positive and negative merits of hypnosis, the use of hypnotic session dialogue brings us up close and personal with the witness. The case descriptions and backgrounds included are clear and well presented, but hearing the witness speak specifically about the encounter is chilling.

The Alien Abduction Files: The Most Startling Cases of Human-Alien Contact Ever Reported by Kathleen Marden and Denise Stoner is a well blended story of intensive investigation and well gathered evidence – including multiple alternate non-alien theories. The story closes with several more witnesses’ stories told more succinctly to reinforce the simple idea that mankind is somehow being personally invaded in ways and for reasons not yet understood.
