Mac's eagerly awaited final book, The Cryptoterrestrials, is going to be available on March 15th.

I remember when he first started to think about putting his ideas with regards to indigenous humanoids into book form. He asked me what I thought (we were traveling in California at the time). I told him that I didn't really buy the hypothesis, but I would buy the book, and keep an open mind.

He smiled, and said he didn't really buy the hypothesis either - that was what believers did. He just wanted to start a discussion, bandy some interesting ideas about, look at things in a different way, and see where it went.

From author John Shirley:

"The Cryptoterrestrials is the most refreshing speculation on the paranormal I've seen in ages. The ideas in this book will be harvested by science-fiction writers and TV shows like Fringe for decades. Even skeptics will have a great time reading this well written book of wild conjecture. Mac Tonnies' final Fortean landmark is the Book of the Damned for the 21st century. Fans of the paranormal: be there or be square.”

Mac understood that it was the journey that mattered, not the destination. I look forward to taking one final trip with him and his cryptoterrestrial friends!

Looking forward to reading this.

If reincarnation is real, and if cryptoterrestrials are real, then maybe Mac will get to come back as one -- and get a first-hand look at the subject that so fascinated him!

Since I started reading Vallee and Keel I've thought that the idea of "cryptoterrestrial" was a much more meaningful idea than LGM or the ETH.

Apparently, the book is available now, not the 15th... even better!

Absolutely.

For me Mac was almost a continuation of Dr. Vallee and Keel.

My copy will be en route tomorrow. Looking forward to reading it. I've heard really good things so far.

Also of note, John Shirley wouldn't just recommend anything. He himself wrote a hell of a fiction book called "Silicon Embrace" which featured UFO/Sci-Fi.

I am looking forward to getting the Cryptos, too.
