In Alien Heat

The Warminster Mystery Revisited

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


There has probably never been anything like it in UFO history, but the UFO fever that gripped the small British town of Warminster for about a decade is now largely forgotten. It was one of the largest UFO flaps ever to occur. Thousands of witnesses reported seeing the "Warminster Thing." The hilltops around the town attracted a loyal band of followers, all waiting for the magic sighting, the landing, the contact. The authors were themselves among the skywatchers and spent nights on Cradle Hill, the center of the phenomenon, watching and waiting for UFOs. 

IN ALIEN HEAT introduces the Warminster phenomenon to a new generation of readers. It contains a short history of the phenomenon, places it in its social and historical context, and examines the possible mechanisms that initiated and sustained this remarkable UFO flap. 

Steve Dewey grew up in Warminster. He has a bachelor's degree in Society and Technology and a master's in Popular Culture. He is a technical author by trade. 

John Ries also grew-up in Warminster and was a computer programmer specializing in databases. He passed away in June of 2009.
"Dewey and Reis have done a public service in dragging the Warminster Thing and the Warminster phenomenon back into view...this book is a gem, not just for having resurrected the 'case,' but for the relentless dissections the authors put it through...The story of the Warminster phenomenon as Dewey and Reis tell it is at once singular and weird -- not least in its initial manifestation as a still-unattributed series of alarming noises -- and archetypical. This book should be read with care, patience, and reflection, but most of all it should be read." -- Peter Brookesmith, Journal of Scientific Exploration
