Human by Day, Zeta by Night claims to be a fictitious account of real-life interactions between space aliens (Zetas) and human beings. Such interactions include encounters here on Earth and alien abductions of human beings for study in off-planet locations. The book's long view is that such interactions have been going on for thousands of years. The aliens, who created the human race, come back periodically to see what we're doing and how we're doing it. Lately the aliens spend a lot of time here tinkering with us because they're afraid we are going to kill ourselves and wreck the planet.
Of course we've all heard these stories in movies, on TV, in sci-fi adventure novels and in first-hand accounts by those people who claim to have been abducted. What makes Human different is the author/narrator, who claims that he/she is him/herself one of the alien beings involved in ETs' effort to save us from ourselves.
I first got interested in this stuff away back in 1971, when my former book club sent me Eric von Däniken's Chariots of the Gods. I was doing a lot of psychedelics at the time. All the people I hung out with were more or less crisp around the edges. My next-door neighbor claimed to be a witch. She told me there was a poltergeist in her house and that her Pomeranian could levitate. You get the picture.
Anyway, from where I was perched at the time, von Däniken's ideas had a certain appeal. Today I laugh about it, but still I tune in to programs like Ancient Aliens on the History Channel 'cause I keep hoping somebody will come up with something that proves we really need those Men in Black. Reality reeks! Know what I mean?
So now I hang on the Internet. I got a whole bunch o' books and I read and write quite a bit because I like to read and write. Also, my cat gets tired of me almost as often as I get tired of the History Channel. I was bored one day when I saw this Human by Day book offered on LibraryThing's "Member Giveaway" dingus. I tossed my name in the hat thinking I might win a chance to learn something new about von Däniken and/or extra-terrestrial astronauts. Now I realize I should o' stayed with the History Channel and all those Ancient Aliens.
