Jacket Text

Since January 28, 1975, Eduard "Billy" Meier has been at the center of an intense international controversy both within the UFO community of supporters and between believers and skeptics. Meier conteds that he is in direct personal contact with aliens from the star cluster Pleiades. He even claims to have flown aboard the Pleiadian spacecraft with his alien contact, "Semjase", visiting other worlds. To support these amazing claims, he has produced thousands of pages of "contact notes" along with photographs, film footage and Pleiadian rock and metal samples. The aliens allegedly contact Meier at a commune in Switzerland called the Semjase Silver Star Center, which in many ways resembles a religious cult with Meier as its leader.

To help substantiate Meier's claims., his American supporters have subjected the photographs and samples to laboratory testing, touting the results as positive proof of Meier's honesty

Intrigued by this tantalising story, renowned UFO researcher Kal K. Korff conducted his own in-depth investigation. Karoff traveled to Switzerland, where he went undercover inside the Meier camp. The result is Spacehships of the Pleiades, a fascinating account of the most documented UFO case of all time, a work that includes many perviously unpublished Meier photographs and evidence long suppressed by Meier and his supporters.

Has Billy Meier really been in the presence of aliens? Is his collection of evidence well grounded? Is Billy Meier's the discovery of a lifetime or one of the most elaborate hoaxes of modern history? You be the judge.
