If you have read Hoaxes- Roswell, UFOs, and International Espionage then you know how important these books are to it. I found the one on the right at a bookstore in Lincoln City a while ago. I just found the second here at the festival. Big find! Both are first editions printed back when my novel takes place in 1966.
For those who don’t know, these books help provide the seed that drives the kids to pull their hoax, which goes terribly wrong. Little do they realize this is the catalyst that drives them to uncover a long buried secret.
