I read this book a while back called Dark Object. It's a fantastic story about a UFO that came from the USSR over the North Pole and spent time under water near Nova Scotia. The first author is a respected ufologist, and the book is written like it really happened. But it must be fiction because the story is just too far out. I'm surprised they didn't throw in Santa Claus! It would be nice though if they had given us some clues that it is a work of fiction. I guess we can't really believe anything we read. There must be money in the book publishing business. Or maybe there were hopes for a movie. Someone's always looking to make a buck. William Listen to 'Strange Days...
