The Art of Close Encounters - Press Release

In Stephen Bassett's lecture on The Exopolitical Revolution he discussed the work of contactee Kim Carlsberg whose new book The Art of Close Encounters is released today. Stephen has been involved with the publishing of this work and he made an appeal in Leeds for contactees and experiencers to come forward if they would like to contribute to the second volume of this work which is in-progress.

Fifteen years in the making, The Art of Close Encounters, written and edited by artist, photographer and contactee Kim Carlsberg, goes on pre-sale today worldwide at

In 1995 Kim published a diary which chronicled her complex relationship with non-human entities that began after a close encounter in Malibu, CA in 1988. This powerful story was accompanied by artistic representations of her experiences, all of which had a profound effect on many readers with similar experiences. Over the intervening years hundreds of these readers contacted Kim with their own accounts of contact. The outcome of that correspondence is The Art of Close Encounters.

The sheer volume of stories, the authenticity and range of the encounters, and the beauty and diversity of the art makes this new book the closest we will have to a reference guide to this extraordinary phenomenon. A remarkable achievement.
