Jon Rappoport, author of such brilliant books as AIDS INC., THE SECRET BEHIND SECRET SOCIETIES, and EXIT FROM THE MATRIX, recently wrote the following review of my book SPIES AND SAUCERS:
Guffey is a writer of the first rank. He is more. He makes
strange landscapes and people come alive in ways that remind the reader
that, yes, this world is strange. The three novellas in SPIES AND
SAUCERS will shake up your soul and make you laugh, even if you don't
want to. You'll walk in his characters' shoes as they try to cope with
exceedingly bent realities, and you'll know why winning and losing are
only a part of a much larger and more surreal Weird that has taken over
society. Guffey makes his work look easy, but it isn't. He's a
magician. He has the ineffable touch."

Further praise for SPIES AND SAUCERS:
"Robert Guffey’s SPIES AND SAUCERS is an unforgettable experience. In
this book, the three tales are distinct and yet also have clear thematic
relationships to one another, all evoking an insightful view of the
wonders and the fears of America in the '50s. They also draw upon a
rich array of pop culture, ranging from B-horror movies like THE DEVIL
BAT (1940) with Bela Lugosi to Irish folklore and the golden age of
science fiction novels.
"These allusions enriched both occasions
I’ve read SPIES AND SAUCERS (thankfully I have a hardback, as I’ll be
returning to it again in the near future). At the same time, I don’t
believe knowledge of the various films and books to which Guffey refers
is necessary, no more so than it is for reading and loving Thomas
"SPIES AND SAUCERS is thoughtful--at times dark, at times darkly humorous--but always enjoyable.
with Cormac McCarthy, Guffey is my favorite modern fiction writer.
SPIES AND SAUCERS provides ample proof as to why I feel that way."
--GARY D. RHODES, author of THE PERILS OF MOVIEGOING IN AMERICA
"Robert Guffey’s book SPIES AND SAUCERS presents three novellas
about UFOs, Men in Black, strange creatures and even stranger
occurrences. These tales are set in the '50s, but they sound
as fresh as any modern story of UFOs and strange creatures. Reading in bed or right before bed is not
recommended for the faint of heart."
--TESSA B. DICK, author of PHILIP K. DICK: REMEMBERING FIREBRIGHT and MY LIFE ON THE EDGE OF REALITY
