Publisher's Summary

Dr. Frank Stranges was born and educated in Brooklyn, New York. He received his bachelor's of divinity as well as PhDs in psychology and philosophy from Faith Theological Seminary in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Dr. Stranges was a member of the Mayor's Advisory Council of Los Angeles and a member of the American Association for Social Psychology. He also held a PhD from the National Institute of Criminology, in Washington, DC, and was an accredited diplomat of the American Academy of Professional Arts. 

Dr. Stranges authored several books on scientific and religious subjects, including his classic The Stranger at the Pentagon, which tells the unusual story of a spaceman named Valiant Thor. Because Thor was a real person who appeared in a public on a few occasions (including at the UN headquarters in New York City), the legend of the Stranger at the Pentagon has grown, becoming a real head-scratcher for 21st-century UFO researchers. Today, it is still one of the hottest topics in ufology, having spawned various other books, documentaries, and even feature Hollywood films. 

What exactly happened to Valiant Thor? Did he get back on his spaceship and return to his home planet, or did he help the US government set up alien-human hybrid experimentation in remote underground bases? Or was he imprisoned - thrown in the clink - by those in the government who have been fighting UFO disclosure all these years? 

Since no one knows how long an alien can live, could Valiant Thor still be alive today, in 2018, somewhere in - or under - our nation's Capitol? 

This audiobook features an introduction by Dr. Harley Byrd, nephew of Adm. Richard E. Byrd, and an epilogue by Valiant Thor himself, as well as several interesting photos, covering years of UFO history. A must-have for the serious paranormal researcher.

Interesting

An interesting read. It has been written in the last century, so writing style is a bit older style. However the information is very interesting & rings true. Recommend it as finding out information that may happen in the future to know more of what’s going on if you are in existence at the time.

Garbage

There is no other word that could possibly describe this book, other than garbage. Pure garbage. It is laughably ridiculous, so nauseatingly stupid, that I resent paying for it.

This is not regarding the concept of extra terrestrial life. There may be aliens, who knows. I bought this book to listen to what I assumed it would be an interesting story. However the very idea that an Alien from the planet Venus, named Thor, would fly to earth solely to tell us about the holy Savior Jesus Christ is absurd. And that is precisely what this book is about.

Aliens apparently don’t care about nuclear war or anything important, they want to teach us to worship Jesus.

No, I’m not making it up. This book is so stupid that it does not even deserve one star. It’s horrible. Boring beyond belief. Stupid beyond words.

Evangelical Propaganda!

This book does not at all cover objectively what are supposed to be real events in history. It is constantly pestering you with religious beliefs and trying to convince you that your soul is lost if you don’t worship “god”. There are a plethora of other authors that cover religious beliefs and tales from the Bible in a non-infuriating way and objectively in relation to the possibility of extra terrestrials and alien encounters. The author calls himself a scientist, but comes across as missionary trying to convince you to worship Jesus Christ and “god”. Was infuriating and painful to listen to. Don’t waste your money or credits on this if you’re looking for an objective recount of historical events.

Title and description are not what’s in the book

Strangely relates everything to god and tells you your doomed if you don’t believe in god.

Idiotic and Ridiculous. People Believe This?

It's hard to know where to begin with this book; It tells a ridiculous, completely unbelievable story that I find difficult to believe any rational adult would find rational or plausible. The author uses a made up fairy tale about an alien visitor to preach the gospel of Jesus. The author openly states that the only reason he believes the claims of the 'alien visitor' is that the alien (Valiant Thor) confirms the authors deeply held conviction regarding Jesus Christ as the Son of God throughout the Universe.

This is a childish fairy tale, written by a buffoon, swallowed like opiods by intellectually gullible masses who believe the Bible above all other things, having abandoned their critical thinkings skills somewhere along the way, assuming they'd developed them to begin with.

If you believe this book, you're a gullible sap.

Inconsistent Facts

I started listening to this audiobook with some curiosity but when the narrator got to the part telling how Secretary of Defence “DF Forrestal” was informed of Valiant Thor’s arrival I lost interest. James Vincent Forrestal was Secretary of Defence until 1949. Charles Erwin Wilson was Secretary of Defence from 1953 to 1957. I have no idea who “DF Forrestal” was but JV Forrestal had been dead nearly 8 years by the time Valiant Thor allegedly landed in Washington.

Oh dear!!!

OMG!!!! they say there is nothing more dangerous than to think you possess "the truth" , well this guy believes it and by George he can write a lot of rubbish. Apparently people from Venus believe in Jesus as their saviour and beware, if you don't believe in Jesus, you will NOT be saved, so there goes most of humanity.... Seriously, don't bother with this book, it is a lot of pretentious, misguided trash.

Utterly Terrible

Disappointing from beginning to end. I was hoping to learn about Valiant Thor but instead was treated to a combination of made up rubbish mixed with religious education delivered by the worlds dullest voice.Total rubbish, don't bother.

Terrible book

This is by far the most boring UFO story I have ever heard. At one point it says Valiant Thor and his race from Venus also worship Jesus Christ. Now that is where I chose to stop listening. For the amount of money it costs, this book is terrible. I was very disappointed.
