Présentation de l'éditeur

After several years of being out of print and becoming a bit of a collectors item; TAKEN, the startling accounts of alien abduction as documented by the late Karla Turner, has been refreshed and reissued faithfully with the sole input and authorization from husband Elton Turner.

With a new foreword written by the legendary Nick Pope who with 21 years of experience at the British Government's Ministry of Defence and an incredible history of research and broadcasting, puts it best that Taken is a real ‘researcher’s book’.

This is the ultimate investigation of the paranormal links between humans and 'other worldly' beings.

Biographie de l'auteur

Dr. Karla Turner focused on the psychology and ethics of those alleging that they had been abducted, visited, probed and tormented by extraterrestrial beings. As a former college instructor who held a doctorate in Old English Studies as well as a B.A. and M.A. earned in both America and England respectively; Turner gave her heart and soul to help those trying to make sense of the things that didn't make sense. Dr Turner lost her battle to breast cancer in 1996 but her legacy to the paranormal field is all but not forgotten.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 VERY INTERESTING 29 octobre 2013
Format:Broché
I read "The Keeper" by Jim Sparks and felt a bit uncomfortable. I couldn't believe a lot of things he wrote, and because it sounded too fictional I was disappointed. While as "Taken" is much more credible and confirming the events, very interesting to read and couldn't put the book down. What a pity that Dr. K. Turner passed away at such a young age! I don't know if she was killed or not but definitely her close friend and her husband were killed... Who could ever imagine that investigating and proving existence of UFO and aliens would put those investigators into life threatening situation (and WHY?)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A welcome re-issue of Karla Turner's greatest work 30 décembre 2013
Par The Guardian - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
`Taken' was the second book (of three) published by Arizona-based professional academic and educator Dr. Karla Turner PhD, who died of breast cancer at the tragically young age of 48. Turner had a stable and loving marriage and a family, and for several years prior to her death on 10 January 1996 worked to publicize the reality of the alien abduction phenomenon to academia and to a wide public audience. She appeared several times on mainstream media/TV, and you can find uploaded videos of her lectures and interviews on the web.

Her first book, `Into the Fringe' published in 1992, is essentially autobiographical and chronicled the process of how she became aware that abduction by `alien entities' was the origin of a range of bizarre and otherwise inexplicable events which afflicted her family over many years. These included multiple close-proximity sightings of UFOs; episodes of missing time of several hours' duration; night-time visitations; persistent, repeated and dramatic patterns of body scarring and various poltergeist-type activity experienced by different members of the family, especially by her husband Casey (Elton) and son David. It recounts a journey from puzzlement and ignorance to eventual reluctant acknowledgement that the abduction phenomenon was the only explanation to fit the data.

In the months following the publication of ITF, Turner was contacted by scores of people with stories essentially similar in content to those of her own family, was drawn to interview these people and investigate the cases herself. `Taken' chronicles eight of these cases, all women, and as she states in the introduction:

"The correlation of evidence from their accounts greatly widens the parameters of the abduction scenario and points to certain aspects, previously disregarded or avoided, in need of serious exploration" (p1)

The 13-page introduction to `Taken' is one of the most concise, elegant and accurate summaries of what was known about the phenomenon in 1994 - and, it needs to be said, not a great deal more is understood about it even now. The phenomenon is complex, multi-layered and deep, and Turner's serious investigation reveals unexpected and surprising detail about the abductors' MO and intentions as well as some of the more unusual peripheral aspects less frequently seen.

The main body of the book consists of eight sequential chapters, one devoted to each of the eight abductees' cases. All are disguised with pseudonyms. The material is complex, and more appropriate for the reader with some experience and prior knowledge of the phenomenon. Turner's hands-on investigative work is thorough; her handling of the abductees highly professional and her application of deductive reasoning to the accumulating evidence intelligent and impressive.

Following the eight case studies, the author attempts to correlate the data into patterns and between pp232-239 lays out full-page spreadsheets to analyze common factors in the reports: for example, six out of the eight reported episodes of childhood missing time; all eight reported missing time episodes as adults. Five reported medically confirmed ear implants; three had implants in the nose. Two had a medically confirmed missing fetus after 10 weeks of pregnancy; three reported being immersed in a liquid during abduction and feared they were being drowned until they discovered they could breathe - and so on. The frequency of clothes mix-ups - i.e. waking in the morning wearing clothes not your own, with what you were wearing when you went to bed missing and never again found - is common with abductees. Other phenomena include bruises, triangular body marks, claw-like scratches, puncture marks, rashes, blood on body or bed sheets and scoop-biopsy marks. Less tangible abduction markers seem to be a desire to live rurally and escape cities, a shift in attitudes, a sense of some foreboding disaster and the feeling of having a task to perform.

Some of the more disturbing reports (by half of those investigated) involve involuntary sexual contact with male abductees or with `adult hybrids,' one such incident reported to have taken place in the home of the abductee. This detail is significant in that these accounts were reported to Karla Turner in 1993: i.e. five years prior to the publication of Professor David Jacobs' controversial landmark book on the abduction phenomenon `The Threat' where this particular feature of `hybrid interaction' was first exposed to a wider readership. Jacobs was not, as we now know, either the first or the only researcher to whom these bizarre and very detailed narratives were described: that honor may go to Karla Turner.

The final two chapters are used for discussion of the collated evidence and the drawing of conclusions. One of Karla Turner`s most persistent and controversial claims was that elements within `the Government' occasionally abducted known abductees in order to glean information from them, using drugs to wipe their memories. This so-called `Mil-Ab' issue resurfaces in `Taken' even more forcefully than in ITF.

As you might expect from a professional academic she was a good literate writer. Dr. Turner's third and final published book on the phenomenon, `Masquerade of Angels' was actually written concurrently with `Taken' and in some way overlaps it. They are amongst the best work on the subject ever committed to print: serious, intelligent, groundbreaking and fearless in confronting the issues. Turner was no `New Ager' and her work retains its controversial reputation 15 years after her death. It deserves consideration alongside the best work of Budd Hopkins, Dave Jacobs, John Mack and Raymond Fowler, and brings a unique perspective of its own.

The 2013 edition:

Until now, original copies of `Taken' (indeed of all Karla's books, but especially this one) have been in great demand with high prices paid due to rarity, and good original copies seen as collectors' items. This new 2013 reprint is welcome not only in making this great work once again affordable for the average reader, but in correcting the few typos and grammatical errors in the original text and restoring it to its rightful place among the great works of the genre. Cask J. Thomson deserves the credit of initiating this project; he secured the valuable participation of Karla's widower Elton in editing the text.

An intelligent new foreword about Karla's work is penned by Nick Pope, and follows this short paragraph:

"For the sake of clarification Karla Turner passed away after a long struggle with breast cancer and underwent breast removal surgery and chemotherapy. Despite the common misconceptions it is unlikely that she was targeted by an individual, group or organization attempting to silence her."

It's a pity that Elton and the publishers felt the need to include this caution at the beginning of the new 2013 edition, but evidently the antics of conspiracy theorists over the past 17 years have made it necessary.

The new edition is in paperback only; it looks like we'll never see a hardcover edition of this great classic.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book to add to a collection 27 février 2014
Par Dolores J. Reed - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
If you have an interest in abduction cases, this is a vintage book that should not be dismissed. The author is a psychologist and an abductee. The words experiencer and contactee had not yet been coined when this book was written.

She writes about 6 women who each recall multiple abduction episodes almost completely without the use of hypnosis. They tell a very interesting and, at times, scary scenarios. She also relates some of her own episodes.

She died at 48 years old of fast acting Breast Cancer which we are assured was not caused by the aliens. She was very bright and this a very interesting book. I am waiting for her other books to be reissued.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 The Devil has come down to you: Revelation 12:7-12 1 septembre 2014
Par michael johnson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Read about half the book. Seemed to iterate similar accounts. My take-away: Aliens and demons are the same, As early as a few generations past, aliens would have immediately been recognized as a manifestation of the demonic sphere. In this post-Christian secular age, demons are accommodating the belief in Evolution and presenting themselves as higher, more evolved/advanced life forms. But the characteristics of aliens(so called) and demons are identical. First, they must have your permission to interact with you; they may not violate this barrier. You open a portal or door into their realm if you dabble in the occult or desire to be abducted or in some way communicate with them. Once having access, they have a legal claim(as it were) on your being and it is very near impossible to extricate your life from their influence and activity. Only Christ can cast them out. Second,both "aliens" and demons are malevolent in the extreme, They "both" hate man/woman and have absolute contempt for mankind. Yes, it is often masked with benevolence but very quickly their real character is understood. Third, both desire worship from man as gods. In the book one account has a counterfeit Jesus descending from an alien space-craft, saying "I am the Light of the world." Fourth, both so-called aliens and demons are inveterate Liars. Lies are their language and it is not in them to speak the Truth, they are not capable of speaking the truth, They are all about deception and destruction of mankind. Satan may seem interesting, even fascinating but he is your deadly enemy; have nothing to do with him!
