"This book is not intellectual candy to feed favorite beliefs or a sounding board for speculative theories. What this book is, is a work of serious scholarship. Seldom are such deep research, careful analysis, and stringent arguments found in the UFO literature, and Return to Magonia is exemplary both in the four research goals it undertakes and its success in carrying them out. For the serious anomalist, this is a book to treasure...This is fine work through and through, and exemplary of UFO research at its best." - Thomas E. Bullard, Journal of Scientific Exploration "...the first 21st-century UFO book..Return to Magonia is a model of how to conduct productive historical UFO and anomalies studies...this is an instant classic and likely to remain an enduring one." - Jerome Clark, Fortean Times"The book is a lot more than just a series of x-files cases....Chris and Martin have bottled the Fortean formula. Here is a natural science murder mystery: let's solve it, or better still let's fail to solve it an interesting way, leaving some flashes of the numinous on the horizon. There is also perhaps a hint of the underdog. The book was written by two part time researchers who pack more punch than many university teams in their use of astronomy, meteorology and the wealth of archive material on the internet.... What a fantastic book!" - Beachcombing's Bizarre History Blog"Amazing! Chris Aubeck and Martin Shough's work should be required reading for anyone who calls themselves a UFO investigator." - Clas Svahn, journalist and bestselling author"Return to Magonia presents the most thorough and detailed review and analysis of historical aerial anomalies cases, making it essential reading for everyone interested in Fortean and UFO topics." - Nigel Watson, Magonia"Return to Magonia is an excellent study that confirms Anomalist Books leading position in the publishing of great books on anomaly studies-a very impressive contribution to the study of pre-1947 UFO events that has much to offer to modern day UFO study." - Bill Chalker, The OZ Files"This is an excellent collection of reports that shows the rich variety of aerial anomalies...They do a good job of trying to scientifically explain these sightings...A great book showing that flying saucers are nothing new." - Starburst Magazine"...a book that should be read by everyone professing to be a UFO investigator or researcher...of great utility for modern UFO research...this rich and dense examination of historical UFO events....Another volume could become available should this first volume sell well. I certainly hope it does." - UFO Truth Magazine
