Cash-Landrum UFO case: Book Coverage
The Cash-Landrum case has been mentioned in a great many UFO books, but most often as just a brief summary. Most offer no independent investigation, and just repeat the John Schuessler reports. There are few that do better, and here's some of the more notable ones.
There will be revisions from time to time, to add other titles and comment on why they are worthy of inclusion. Many deserve full reviews.
The Spectrum of UFO Research
Chicago: J. Allen Hynek Center for UFO Studies, 1988, Mimi Hynek, ed. John Schuessler's first lecture on the Cash-Landrum case from Sept. 1981. The presentation serves as as an excellent introduction to the case, telling the story of the events, and discussing the early months of the investigation. The narrative of the encounter is followed by speculation about the injuries and their source. Includes photographs, the Q & A session that followed Schuessler's lecture and his 1988 update on the case.
