Start your review of The Humanoids Write a review Shelves: s , britain-and-ireland , ufology , reviewed This is a very interesting book from the late s about UFO contact stories, focusing on what would later be called "close encounters of the third kind" but not exclusively those - which makes the title somewhat misleading. For example, George Adamski and his hippyish Venusian space brothers are in the book treated as something you had to take seriously even just as an opponent because he still had many admirers back then.
As a matter of fact, this book documents that Adamski-type human aliens were a mainstay of CE3K cases well into the late s even after most ufologists started viewing Adamski himself as a crank. Furthermore in countries like Brazil and Chile extremely strange sightings often come from people in highly respected professions like economist and lawyers, many of these being individuals regarded as the best in their field to be found anywhere in their countries.
A detail I found particularly interesting was that in Latin America, an unusually high percentage of UFO crew reported in Latin America are described as gigantic cyclopses, a type of alien not seen often in reports from Northern Europe or the Anglosphere This chapter digs up a good deal of information about the case I had never encountered before but for some reason is often left out. For instance him having his brother as a co-witness, his descriptions of the craft in detail or the unclassifiable but very real sickness Vilas Boas had after the experience.
The Vilas Boas chapter however repeats one popular misconception that Vilas Boas did not correct until the s shortly before he died, namely the one that he found the alien woman to be extremely beautiful when he in fact described her as "short and ugly". Interestingly enough, he described her as having the exact same combination of Northern European and East Asian physical traits mentioned above!
Examples include the Hopkinsville Goblins the inspiration for the mids horror movie "Gremlins"? I did not know until now that measurement of the landing gear marks left at Socorro revealed a perfect mathematically measured geometrical pattern that could only be the work of a mechanically constructed craft. All in all, this is an important book if you are an UFO enthusiast who are interested in how the culture surrounding UFOs has evolved through the 20th century or if you have an interest in "third kind" close encounters as the book digs up a lot of obscure cases as well as important neglected information about classic UFO cases.
