There is a movement afoot for people to gather and “swarm” Area 51. It started as a Facebook joke but has since taken a life of its own.
I’ve been out to the Area 51 vicinity a couple of times. Once with a film crew from the Syfy Channel. The show had hired me as an Area 51 ‘expert’ given my Area 51 series of books have sold several million copies. Of course, my books are fiction. However, I will say 95% of whats in them is true. I just added a fictional reason WHY these things happened or exist.
I don’t think most of the people who have this fantasy of ‘swarming’ Area 51 really understand where it is or how isolated. It’s in the middle of nowhere. As I say in my books it’s in the middle of nowhere on the way to nowhere. You don’t even drive Extraterrestrial Highway, or Nevada 375 unless you want to go by Area 51.
One time I was driving out there with my wife and we hadn’t seen anyone for a long time coming the other way, then this car comes by looking like the one in Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang. Even the people were dressed era-appropriate. We figured they came through the time portals as described in my Time Patrol books.
My wife and I joke when we watch some documentary that I wrote about the subject matter, but it’s sort of true. The Area 51 series, now at 12 books, with three new ones out in the past year and more to come, literally rewrite the entire history of mankind. From before the dawn of history, through ancient Egypt to the present. I explain the Pyramids, the Sphinx, the Grail, the Ark of the Covenant, vampires, Excalibur, Jack the Ripper, Vlad the Impaler, the Great Wall of China, Devils Island, the Bermuda Triangle, Sir Burton’s lost manuscript, the Black Death, and on and on and on.
