Thanks for the comments.

I have been curious about this book for several reasons: first
it addresses the odd photos that I have found in both UFO
hotspot cases and alleged "hauntings".

I have had the privilege of getting to know some individuals who
have private collections of these type of photos that they have
produced from a specific area, and their stories along with the
photos have completely changed the way I look at the UFO

Second, the book delves into the idea of "tulpas", which I
imagine is an extremely unpopular concept amongst ufologists,
but I admit is striking a chord with me. So I'll dig into the
book and see what I think.

For me I would at least pay attention to Thomas Bearden just on
the fact that he addresses the subject of these types of photos,
and discusses the images in the context of them representing a
manifestation of the UFO phenomenon which as far as I have seen
is totally on the mark.
