Paul Hynek

Paul Hynek is known in UFO circles as the son of renown astronomer, professor and UFOlogist, J. Allen Hynek. The senior Hynek, began as a skeptic, but dedicated his life to the research of UFOs and the people who claimed to see them. In his book, The Hynek UFO Report, (1977) he is quoted as saying, “The witnesses I interviewed could have been lying, could have been insane or could have been hallucinating collectively—but I do not think so.” UFO Books Press is proud to include Paul and his father’s work as part of our growing list of must reads.

However, Paul Hynek has distinguished himself in his own right. He has decades of successful experience in finance, technology, and entertainment.

As for new titles, we look for scientific support and credibility to add to the literature. We maintain the highest standards of content and factual underpinnings as much as is possible in this controversial subject area.

As much as any book about the subject may be perceived by skeptics as fiction, we do not publish books that are intended as such. We have a fantasy/Sci-fi imprint for that purpose.

We believe that the imagination is often the place where truth begins. However, we seek to provide as much factual information as possible. That being said, an experience is real to the person to whom it happened. We will entertain submissions of this nature for articles and blog posts.

Some of our older titles are available on some online retailers. However, all new titles are only available here. You can purchase physical books and digital downloads directly from the site. You can also bundle your purchases.
