Alien Autopsy Inquest

Philip Mantle
The so-called Alien Autopsy film was released by London businessman Ray Santilli in
August of l995. It made newspaper and TV headlines around the world. This film has gone
down in UFO history as the most controversial piece of film ever. At the forefront of
research into this film from the very beginning was former BUFORA Director of
Investigations Philip Mantle. He was the first recognised UFO researcher contacted by Ray
Santilli in l993 and he has been attempting to get to the bottom of this controversial film
ever since.

Now, for the very first time, Philip Mantle brings together 14 years worth of research and
investigation into one book; ‘Alien Autopsy Inquest’. This unique 280 page (illustrated)
work is published by PublishAmerica and is unique in every sense of the word. There is no
other book that is dedicated entirely to the Alien Autopsy film. This book looks at the film
from every conceivable angle, interviews and questions the relevant experts from around
the world, and presents the facts as we know them. At the end of the book a number of
possible scenarios are put forward to possibly explain the nature and origin of this
controversial film, but in the end the reader is left to make up their own mind.

David Icke's Extraordinary

Extraordinary New
Book Triggers Storm
Storm of Interest
The David Icke Guide to the Global
Conspiracy is the amazing new book
from David Icke. This book investigates
and examines many subjects and aspects
of the "conspiracy" and "connects the
dots". The picture that appears once you
understand how it all fits together is
astounding. This is the book that will wake
up the masses and reveal at last in an
undeniable way the incredible level of
control a covert and evil controlling force
has had over humanity for thousands of
years. It shows how they manipulate your
reality using advanced but hidden
knowledge so you are little more that
slaves who think you're free and are are
doing exactly what you're covertly told to.

“The David Icke Guide to the Global Conspiracy (and how to end it) is a must read for one and all. Two
thumbs up David!”
