We’re still in July, 1967. Jaye Paro passes along a couple of incoherent communiques from the supposed aliens. Agar was one of her usual contacts, and doesn’t make much sense. Revelation 8 concerns the four angels blowing their trumpets; it doesn’t do much to clarify the message. I also don’t know if John is being compared to John of Patmos.
After another strange phone call, John heads for Long Island. He checks into a hotel, and finds a Gideon Bible with his name in it. Of course, John is a common name, as well as a book of the Bible, but you can’t blame him for being spooked.
