New Saucerian is pleased to unveil the new "Retro" Edition of Gray Barker's "The Silver Bridge," featuring the original cover art from 1970! Over the years, this first edition became one of the most sought-after titles in existence, fetching astronomical prices.
An intact dust jacket - featuring Barker's drawing of the Silver Bridge - was even more rare, so New Saucerian turned to a special source: John A. Keel, who happened to have a perfect signed copy. (Yes, the cover art is directly from John Keel's own personal copy!)
Description from the original dust jacket:
What kind of book is "The Silver Bridge?"
Well... It is primarily not about the collapse of the Silver Bridge in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, which took the lives of dozens of people on December 15th, 1967 - though it does describe the strange events that preceded the collapse.
Is this book a historical account of Mothman, the famous birdman who visited the Elk, Kanawha, and Ohio river valleys in 1966? Or is it a dramatic docudrama about the hopes and fears of local residents?
And what about Woody Derenberger, whose van was stopped on a nearby highway by an otherworldly "spaceman" named "Indrid Cold?" Did Woody really take a friendly ride in Indrid's spaceship? Did he experience real telepathy with Indrid and the people of the planet "Lanulos," or was Indrid an earthly "Man in Black" with ill intent?
Regardless of what "The Silver Bridge" is really about, one thing is for certain. It will creep mysteriously back into your thoughts, late at night, like the barely audible chanting of robed figures in the foggy, moonlit woods. In the shadows of your darkened bedroom, a visit from a winged creature or pale stranger seems possible - particularly if you happen to "know too much" about flying saucers!
