Throughout the ages people have sensed the existence of a benevolent force intervening from time to time in their lives as if to offer them help and protection - or to chasten them. The good fairy of folklore and the guardian angel of Christian tradition belong in this category. Socrates said that he had heeded the voice of his ‘daemon’ all his life, and it had never let him down. Churchill sometimes had ‘a strong feeling’; he told an audience of miners during the Second World War, ‘that some guiding hand has interfered’.

In The Unknown Guest Brian Inglis explores the historical and present-day evidence of the force. In perhaps its most familiar guise it operates as the ‘muse’ for writers and artists. And many of us have felt that chance and luck can’t explain away hunches, premonitions, meaningful coincidences and extra-sensory perceptions. Brian Inglis concludes that we don’t know enough to be sure about the source of these promptings but the evidence is impressive enough to be worth examining afresh.

About the author

Brian Inglis (31 July 1916 – 11 February 1993) was an Irish journalist, historian and television presenter. He was born in Dublin, Ireland, and retained an interest in Irish history and politics. He was best known to people in Britain as the presenter of All Our Yesterdays, a television review of events exactly 25 years previously, as seen in newsreels, newspaper articles etc. He also presented the weekly review of newspapers known as What the Papers Say. He joined the staff of The Spectator in 1954, and became editor in 1959, soon afterwards hiring the young Bernard Levin to write for the magazine. He continued as editor until 1962. He also had interests in the paranormal, and alternatives to institutionalised medicine. Inglis’ friend and colleague Bill Grundy died on 9 February 1993. Inglis had just finished writing Grundy’s obituary when he, too, died.

Missing Time by Budd Hopkins – Since World War II, tens of thousands of reports of unidentified flying objects have been gathered, officially and unofficially, by the United States Air Force and myriad other governmental and civilian investigative organizations around the world.1 Like Astronaut McDivitt’s “cylinder with antennas,” these objects are often described as being mechanically structured, metallic, and very frequently as behaving as if they were under intelligent control. The thousands of similar, enigmatic reports from across the world mean that no matter what realities may lie behind it, the UFO phenomenon exists as an undeniable fact of life. Read here
