Subject: Rudy Rucker's 'Saucer Wisdom'


I was interested in the review of 'Abduction In My Life' and the
narrative structure used by the author. Scientist Rudy Rucker
has a similarly constructed book on alien contact called "Saucer
Wisdom," which I can't imagine any intelligent ufologist not
liking.  (Rucker takes some pretty viscious stabs at the UFO
research community, but who can blame him?)

If anyone's interested, "Saucer Wisdom" can be purchased via my
site at the following URL:


'Saucer Wisdom', Rucker's transrealist attempt to usher in
a 'new style of ufology', succeeds as both a novel and as a
handbook for the near and not-so-near future.

Describing the exploits of "Frank Shook", a likeable, slightly
unhinged UFO contactee, Rucker addresses incipient technological
breakthroughs with the same uncanny wit readers of the 'Ware'
series have come to appreciate. Part speculation and part
psycho-spiritual manifesto, 'Saucer Wisdom' is a genre-busting
classic and a great introduction to Rucker's canon.
