One of the most (if not the most) important books ever written on the subject of UFO abductions is David Hufford's The Terror That comes in the Night. It deals with the 'Old Hag' night-visitor phenomenon, which is intimately connected to alien abductions.

Magonia recognised the importance and relevance of this book when it was first published, and acknowledged that it provides a key to understanding a wide range of human experiences which had previously been considered only in terms of rumour and folklore. Hufford's work made it clear that these were real experiences that happened to real people who reported them accurately, but by and large to people who didn't take them seriously!

The exact interpretation of Hufford's work has for a long time been a bone of contention between Magonia's editors and America's leading UFO historian and encyclopaedist, Jerome Clark. I won't go into the details of it here, but those who need to know will find it archived ad nauseam on the UFO UpDates Archives.

The best thing is to let Hufford speak about it for himself, and here he is in a short clip from a recent documentary Your Worst Nightmare: Supernatural Assault: David Hufford on Sleep Paralysis (For full details of the documentary go to: http://www.soulsmack.com/ -- Hat-tip to 'Damn Data' - see bloglist - for the information and link)
