When James M Deem was eight years old, he was certain that space aliens had invaded his bedroom. He was trying to sleep one night, when he heard voices whispering near his bed.
Here's how he described it:
I screamed for my parents. We looked everywhere but we couldn't find the source of the whispering. I tried to go back to sleep, but the whispering began again.
I don't know how many times my parents came to my bedroom that night, but we finally discovered that an old radio in my room that had always been broken had suddenly begun to work. The voices had been a radio announcer and singers -- not space aliens.
That terrifying experience left a lasting impression on him and helped create a lifelong interest in UFOs and alien life forms. He even wrote a book about them: How to Catch a Flying Saucer.
Here are a few UFO stories from the book.
