“Operation Trojan Horse” Back in Print!

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 1:00 pm

Operation Trojan Horse has just been republished by Anomalist Books.  It’s Keel’s major statement on UFOs, and (as readers may have noticed) one of the hardest of his books to find.  So, make your way to Anomalist Books and get yourself some Keel!

Keel and Sanderson Try to Write a Book (12)
