Alien Nightmares: Screen Memories of UFO Alien Abductions by Sharon Delarose is a nonfiction book about alien abduction that describes dream imagery and memories about visiting extraterrestrials.
This nonfiction book recounts the contents of a woman’s lifelong dream journal.
It details her experiences with repeated alien kidnappings. The book presents an analysis of re-occurring dreams and their common elements, and fits everything into a structure called “Screen Memories.” The Screen Memories are repeated false memories that mask what really happened to the author during alien visits. But even false memories have patterns, and this book peels back the mask.
Throughout the book, the author correlates empirical events from news media reports and dream journal entries. The writing style is matter-of-fact, has attention to detail, and shows organized thinking. Despite the fantastical subject area, the alien abduction accounts have a refreshing clinical factualness. The book’s painstaking correlation of the journal with media research produces a plausible Screen Memories theory.
Alien Nightmares: Screen Memories of UFO Alien Abductions is an excellent treatment of a topic that polarizes people into believers or doubters.
Believers find reassurance that they share a sobering, and terrifying, comradery with other abductees. Doubters put it all into the “has a vivid imagination” bucket. This book does an excellent job of systematically analyzing the dreams and the related real events. Even though the author’s memories were masked by aliens, there is too much coincidence with real events to dismiss the journal entries. The book could convince the doubter there might be something alien going on, after all.
Alien Nightmares: Screen Memories of UFO Alien Abductions is recommended for Gentle Readers who enjoy true accounts. Others that demand correlated facts to give credence to fantastical situations would enjoy the painstaking cross-referencing. No matter if Gentle Reader is an alien abduction believer or doubter, this book delivers treats for both camps.
