Subject: Fatima Revisited Press Release

Dear Listers,

I'm forwarding this press-release for the international
anthology Fatima Revisited - The Apparition Phenomenon In
Ufology, Psychology And Science, which is now published, in
English, by Anomalist Books as the third part of the Fatima

I hope it of interest to you.


For Immediate Release
Subject: What Really Happened At Fatima?

Just who was the brilliant entity that appeared to three young
children at Fatima in 1917? Was she the Virgin Mary, as the
Catholic Church would have us believe, sharing divine secrets
with believers?

Was she an angel, bringing a message of peace to a world at

Or was she an alien being, inspiring humanity to look up and
contemplate the mystery of the Cosmos?

Believers and skeptics have long pondered the identity of
Our Lady of Fatima.

Now, in a newly published book entitled Fatima Revisited: The
Apparition Phenomenon In Ufology, Psychology And Science
- Anomalist Books, 2008 - an international panel of leading
scholars subjects the legendary apparitions to the scrutiny of
modern scientific analysis; explores the connections between
contact with apparitions, angels, and aliens; and proposes a new
paradigm for such unexplained phenomena.

This is the third volume of the acclaimed Fatima Trilogy, which
includes the definitive histories of the Fatima case entitled
Heavenly Lights (Anomalist Books, 2007) and Celestial Secrets
- Anomalist Books, 2007. The Fatima Trilogy grew from an
exchange of emails between a Portuguese researcher and an
American journalist into a multi-disciplinary collaboration
involving 35 individuals from 10 countries.

Andrew D. Basiago, who led efforts in the U.S. to bring the
trilogy into English, observed: "In The Fatima Trilogy, the
Fatima Incident of 1917 is forever redefined, from the most
famous religious event of the 20th century to its first major
close encounter case."

The papers gathered in this volume have appeared in both peer-
reviewed journals and original works inspired by the intense and
productive process of brainstorming about the visionary
phenomena of Fatima in 1917 that has taken place under the aegis
of the Multicultural Apparitions Research International Academic
Network - Project MARIAN - which is coordinated by the Center for
Transdisciplinary Studies in Consciousness (CTEC) at the
University Fernando Pessoa, in Porto, Portugal. This
international project seeks to create a forum in which the great
mysteries of human existence might be solved.

This groundbreaking anthology was compiled by Portuguese
researchers Fernando Fernandes, Joaquim Fernandes and Raul
Berenguel, and edited and translated by American writers Andrew
D. Basiago and Eva M. Thompson.

Contributors include anthropologist Scott Atran, psychologist
Irene Blinston, psychotherapist Janet Elizabeth Colli,
anthropologist Ryan J. Cook, physicist Eric Davis, historian
David M. Jacobs, human consciousness pioneer Stanley Krippner,
and astrophysicist Jacques F. Vallee =96 all from the U.S.;
engineer Fernando Fernandes, historian Joaquim Fernandes,
psychologist Vitor Rodrigues, psychiatrist Mario Simoes, and
researcher Raul Berenguel =96 all from Portugal; as well as the
British neurophysiologist Frank McGillion, the Belgian physicist
Auguste Meessen, the Brazilian psychotherapist Gilda Moura, and
