Praise for A New World"Whitley Strieber's magical books about
his encounters with the uncanny have captured my imagination since
childhood. A New World find the master in top form, from a stirring
and ultra high strangeness experience at Wounded Knee to grand
speculations about consciousness, communion and the future of
humanity. A fascinating, mysterious book."
--Josh Boone, director of The Fault in Our Stars"Mr. Strieber writes with the precious sanity of an intuitive savant. In describing so clearly true experiences that baffle most of us, he opens our minds to accept with grace meanings we need to learn are very real."
--Christopher Green, MD, PhD"Provocative and riveting. I couldn't put it down. Strieber confronts the mystery of close encounter with fresh insight and depth, wrapping up his years of interaction with the phenomenon he calls "the visitors." Now there is more urgency for contact than ever before, and this book explains how that might happen." --Leslie Kean, Investigative Reporter and Author of Surviving Death, a Journalist Investigates Evidence for an Afterlife "I entered Whitley Strieber's New World and couldn't put it down. Humankind has always wondered what extraterrestrial life would look like, be like, act like. The "visitors" of A New World are unlike anything we have conceived, in other words, they are truly alien. Enter this risky new world and leave warned...and empowered." --Diana Walsh Pasulka, Chair, Department of Philosophy and Religion, University of North Carolina, Wilmington, author of American Cosmic
