The second in a series of acclaimed books, this nonfiction installment sees a retired Los Angeles Times editor reporting on a coalition of humans and aliens who between 1998 and 2001 engaged in extensive interplanetary diplomacy with a goal of open contact. The contact was reportedly abandoned after the events of September 11, 2001, but this epic project is documented as the author--the project's designated writer and herald--shares the daunting challenges this role forced upon him.

Review:

"I ask that people regard the revelations in Phillip Krapf's book with the same attention they directed to the Pentagon Papers in 1971." --Daniel Sheehan, chief counsel for civil litigation, Iran-Contra affair, and chief counsel, Karen Silkwood case

"There was just something about Phillip Krapf that rang true; I guess that's all I can say. Over several hours the story held up--he held up." --Art Bell, Coast to Coast Radio
