Stephen Bassett Executive Director Paradigm Research Group

With MAJIC Eyes Only Ryan Wood has made a major contribution not only to the study of extraterrestrial-related phenomena, but to exopolitics. The political and social implications of the technology embedded in the off-world craft recovered by several nations, including the United States, are almost beyond measure. The energy and propulsion systems behind the known performance characteristics of these vehicles could transform the human condition and reverse in less than a generation the environmental degradation taking place worldwide. Evidence mounts the United States government has re- or reverse-engineered this technology….

James O. Berkland, Geologist Editor SYZYGY Newsletter

I have just read Ryan Wood’s landmark book, MAJIC Eyes Only and I was much impressed with his objective perspective and the wealth of data he has presented. I have been on the periphery of UFO studies and had no idea that at least 74 crash sites had been reported, many with discussions of occupants. Ryan leaves little doubt about which reports are poorly documented or are probably hoaxes. I have recognized Ryan as a thorough scientific investigator during the 1990’s when we worked together on earthquake prediction studies. It was…

Robert M. Collins, Author of Exempt From Disclosure

This book goes far, far beyond the typical UFO books which dwell on lights in the sky or someone’s autobiography. Even if only a small fraction of the reported UFO crashes are true this is still worth the read. Not to be read once, but perhaps several times then to be used as a reference in any future research, the book has “meat” and substance. One of the many high points of this book is a copy of the citation award given to Harry B. Cooper, father of Tim Cooper…

Paul Davids, Executive Producer and Co-Writer of ROSWELL, the Showtime Movie

I’ve spent fifteen years trying to prove just one single UFO crash retrieval case — ROSWELL — and I applaud but tremble at Ryan Wood’s chutzpah in trying to prove a very large number of them in a single book. However, one thing is certain: Ryan Wood and his father, Dr. Robert Wood, have established themselves most convincingly as a prodigious, thorough, insightful, honest, uncompromising, educated — and yes, let’s use the “B” word — brilliant team of UFO investigators who are to UFO’s what the GOSPEL OF JUDAS team…

Robert Dean, Command Sergeant Major, United States Army

“MAJIC Eyes Only is an important and valuable contribution to the necessary research that hopefully and eventually will result in a more open and honest approach by our government to ‘the greatest story in human history.’ I have hopes that in time this subject will receive the respect it deserves from the fields of Academe. MAJIC Eyes Only should become a textbook for generations of young minds who will help us through the difficulties in becoming a truly cosmic society in the years ahead.” – Robert Dean, Command…

Richard M. Dolan, Author of UFOs and the National Security State

The specific history of UFO crash retrievals remains a matter of uncertainty and debate, even among UFO researchers. Still, the likelihood appears strong that several military recoveries have been made of exotic aerial technology – technology that does not appear to have originated from our civilization. The implications of this are enormous, and Ryan Wood has prepared the best compendium and analysis of UFO crash retrievals to date. His work will stand as a valuable resource for future students and researchers of this topic, as well as for anyone who…

Stanton T. Friedman, Nuclear Physicist, Author of TOP SECRET/MAJIC

“MAJIC EYES ONLY is the first real attempt to make available to a wide audience a great number of supposed reports of the retrieval by governments of crashed flying saucers. Some stories are very brief and have had little real investigation. Some such as the Roswell, New Mexico, events of July, 1947, are explored in considerable detail. A number of the referenced MJ-12 documents are still very controversial. The curious reader will have much material to sink his teeth into. Even if only a small percentage of the noted cases…

Peter Gersten, Executive Director of Citizens Against UFO Secrecy (CAUS)

“MAJIC EYES ONLY is a carefully researched and highly readable summary of 74 crash retrieval accounts by an author with deep roots in ufology. It makes a compelling case that at least some alien technology has crashed on our planet. Although my own interests have evolved away from nuts-and-bolts ufology, I can recommend this as an excellent summary of the most credible evidence for crash retrievals and as food for thought even if you, like me, are now more focused on what the UFO phenomenon may be able to tell…

Clark C. McClelland, ScO, Space Shuttle Fleet, Kennedy Space Center, Florida

An EXCELLENT book, Ryan. This is the type of book I thoroughly enjoy because it is simplified in layout, well written, and has overall high quality in the information it conveys from an expert in a specific field of knowledge.The general binding, artwork, etc., is excellent, beautiful, perfection. It is TOP LEVEL QUALITY, congratulations. Are you aware that I worked with Leonard Stringfield in his early compilation of his important works? Leonard was a person of high trustworthiness and honesty. -Clark C. McClelland, ScO, Space Shuttle Fleet, Kennedy Space Center, Florida

C.B. Scott Jones, Ph.D, Peace & Emergency Action Coalition for Earth

“MAJIC EYES ONLY is a beginning and pioneering effort necessary for a meta analysis of data and research concerning extraterrestrial encounters on Earth. Hopefully this book will serve as an eye opening and conscience jarring wedge for citizens of the world to step forward with personal knowledge and documentation that ultimately will make the Earth encounter issue a respected and valued subject for open discussion and discovery at universities and public research organizations around the world. It is both a hope and expectation that this will result in classified government…

George Knapp, Award winning Investigative Reporter, KLASTV Las Vegas

“Ryan Wood’s fascinating book Majic Eyes Only is mandatory reading for anyone interested in the controversial topic of crashed ‘flying saucers’. Wood approaches the subject with the keen eye of a detached journalist. He clearly believes there is something to it but stops short of personally endorsing the legitimacy of the scores of individual incidents that are mentioned. He reports, the reader decides, which is the way it should be. Some of the cases are supported in great detail. Other, less documented incidents, are included in the interests of thoroughness,…

Jim Marrs, Author of Crossfire, Alien Agenda, Rule by Secrecy and Inside Job

“Many questions remain in the UFO controversy. Scientists ask how interstellar pilots could survive a trip of hundreds of years while cutting-edge physicists offer speculation of deep space wormholes and the use of zero point energy. For now, we could not do any better than to study MAJIC EYES ONLY and read the accounts of UFO crash retrievals and ponder what a reality that includes diverse intelligent life outside of our planet might mean for us and future generations.” – Jim Marrs, Author of Crossfire, Alien…

Jamie Maussan, Broadcast TV News Anchor, Mexico

“Ryan Wood has pushed the envelope of ufology to new heights by chronicling 74 UFO crashes from 1897 to present. His investigation around the leaked Top Secret ‘Majestic Documents’ and now with his new book – Majic Eyes Only, Earth’s Encounter’s With Extraterrestrial Technology, must be considered the most comprehensive accounting and analysis on the subject of UFO crashes. The hard evidence presented by Wood provides credibility to the UFO phenomenon and makes a powerful case for intense military and governmental interest. In the future, a UFO crash event, related…

Joseph W. McMoneagle, CWO, USA, Ret., Author: Memoirs of a Psychic Spy

“MAJIC Eyes Only contains the same attention to detail and precise reporting I’ve watched Ryan Wood exercise from the tail gate of a truck, or out of his back pack in the middle of nowhere in the New Mexico desert, or up to his butt in weeds along a river bank in Missouri. In all cases, he never forgot to cross his T’s or dot his i’s while doing the research in the field. So I knew his book would be a winner as well – it’s nice to see…

Nick Pope, Ministry of Defense UFO Project, 1991 – 1994

“Ryan S. Wood has done a phenomenal job in drawing together a vast body of evidence to support the theory that UFOs exist, that some have crashed on Earth, and that governments know more about this than they are saying. Most people have heard of Roswell, where in July 1947 something crashed. To the skeptics, it was a weather balloon; to the believers, an alien spacecraft. But Wood suggests that Roswell was merely the tip of the iceberg and presents evidence not just of one UFO crash, but of 74….

Kevin D. Randle, Journalist and Author

“Wood has done a real service here as Leonard Stringfield did before him; Wood has provided some fascinating information on incidents in which it is possible that alien artifacts, or the remains of interstellar craft, have been recovered. He provides the elements of the case, commenting on the value of the specific case, and giving sources of the information. For those who are interested in completing a library of UFO books, this is a necessity. It gives a look at MJ-12, the recovery of alien artifacts, and an overview of…

Duncan Roads, Editor Nexus Magazine

“Wood considers many dozens of potential UFO crashes, relying considerably on research by other UFO investigators; e.g., the 1897 case of a silver, cigar-shaped object that crashed near Aurora, Texas, has been heavily researched by veteran investigator Jim Marrs (who contributes the foreword to this book). Pioneer Leonard Stringfield is given due credit, as are others. There are some stunning examples from around the globe?certainly not just from Roswell! The final chapter is on the ill-fated SETI project, and the afterword exposes the “anti-conclusions” peddled by the 1969 Condon committee…

Paul M. Rybski, Ph.D., Associate Professor and Chair, Dept. of Physics, and Director, Whitewater Observatory,University of WI-Whitewater

“Majic Eyes Only is a clearly, tightly written book covering possible UFO crash cases. The preponderance of the evidence assembled by the author makes a solid case for the existence of deeply classified government research on many of the retrieved vehicles as well as of recovered extraterrestrial biological entities. Hopefully, in future, someone in the US government will have the intestinal fortitude to “come clean” on what we know and what we don’t. Keeping this material under wraps slows science to a snail’s pace — or stops anything that the…

John F. Schuessler, Mutual UFO Network, Inc., Former International Director

“MAJIC EYES ONLY is unlike any other UFO book ever written. After years of debate about whether or not a hand full of UFO crash cases are real, Ryan Wood has made a breakthrough by looking beyond the popular crashes to find evidence of a whole series of crashes that occurred during the past century. While everyone of the cases may not prove to be of extraterrestrial origin, he has provided a body of technological evidence that strongly suggests that vehicles not made on Earth have crashed here and some…

Richard Sauder, author of Underground Bases and Tunnels, Kundalini Tales and Underwater and Underground Bases

“Ryan Wood’s tour de force, Majic Eyes Only, has set a new standard for the genre of UFO crash retrieval literature. An honest appraisal of the evidence that is presented in Majic Eyes Only leads to the incontrovertible conclusion that agencies of the U.S. government have retrieved numerous crashed UFOs and/or shot them down. The evidence also points to the recovery or capture of multiple UFO occupants, both dead and alive, by secretive elements of the U.S. government and military. “Several of these operations have taken place in New Mexico and I can…

Donald Ware , Director of the International UFO Congress, Former MUFON Director

“Ryan Wood has made it easy for us to see that crashes of ET vehicles have been numerous over many decades. This should help us realize the extent of an alien presence around planet Earth. The 1882 classic, OAHSPE: A New Bible, tells us there are billions of ETs and angels here to assist us humans in these stressful times. More recent communications from “higher intelligence” tell us that our planet is the now the biggest show in our local universe. Thanks to Wood, the documentation is increasingly supporting the…

-Kay Wilson , Author The Alien Jigsaw

Majic Eyes Only is a fascinating investigation into historical records involving 74 downed objects and vehicles. Based in part on the seminal work of the late Leonard Stringfield, to whom credit is duly given, Ryan S. Wood carries the necessary and meticulous study of crash retrievals into the light of the 21st Century. Much gratitude is owed to Ryan S. Wood and Dr. Robert Wood, as well as the brave men and women who have courageously gone on the record with their accounts of what they witnessed involving crashes of exotic…

      Ben Moffett of the Mountain Mail serving Socorro & Catron Counties wrote a reviewed Majic Eyes Only. Here is some of what Moffett wrote in his review: “Majic Eyes Only, has a six-page chapter entitled ‘San Antonio, USA 1945, and a three-page chapter, ‘Nogal Canyon, N.M, May 1947’ and tow pages on the ‘Plains of San Agustin, July 1947. It also has chapters, some brief, on Aztec, Santa Rosa, Clovis, San Miguel County and, not surprisingly, Roswell, nine pages on the July 1947 UFO incident. The last page…

MAJIC EYES ONLY: Earth’s Encounters with Extraterrestrial Technology – by Ryan S. Wood

Here we have a surprise book that dashes the simple idea that the publicized Roswell “crash” was a rare event. This hardback book takes advantage of some photo pages to provide full color examples of “leaked documents” that support the evidence of testimony of multiples recoveries of downed unidentified objects. Ryan Wood has leveraged the results of his leadership in presenting three “UFO Crash Retrieval” conferences in the last three years. It is a fascinating set of 75 reports of recovery or downing of possible extraterrestrial craft, chronologically arranged since 1897. The reports are actually quite conservative, not claiming more…

UFO Magazine

  In the April, 2006 issue of UFO Magazine Robert Bletchman, a retired Connecticut attorney, MUFON public relations director and long time researcher of MJ-12 documents reviews Ryan Wood’s new book Majic Eyes Only: Earth’s Encounters With Extraterrestrial Technology. Here is some of what Bletchman says: “Wood recognizes that the end of the so-called cosmic Watergate will only occur when unequivocal evidence of the physical reality of the flying saucer or its alien occupants is obtained. So he orients his book to the nuts and bolts of the…

UFO Reports

UFO reports come in many guises: anomalous lights in the sky, landing traces, alien abductions, aerial encounters reported by pilots, radar-visual cases, and a plethora of other forms. But reports of UFO crash-retrievals are the most significant of all. In his latest book Majic Eyes Only, Ryan Wood reveals to the reader the details of a stunning 74 crashed UFO reports that span both the centuries and the continents. Citing never-before-seen documentation and the words of courageous witnesses and government insiders, Wood skillfully demonstrates that research into reports of UFO crash-retrievals represent the greatest opportunity for resolving the mystery of the…

UFO Evidence

What, you might ask, constitutes proof of UFO reality? Is a credible sighting made by trained observers sufficient to establish that aliens are among us? What about an encounter that is reported by a high-flying pilot and is subsequently corroborated via ground-based radar? Does that constitute sufficient evidence? Certainly, this evidence means something; but many would argue that only physical materials – either in the form of an alien body or crash-recovered alien technology – could be considered definitive UFO evidence. Within the pages of Majic Eyes Only, Ryan Wood reveals numerous examples of hard, physical UFO evidence that has…

Extraterrestrial Intelligence

If extraterrestrial life exists, then the biggest question of all must surely be: does that life possess advanced intelligence? Ryan Wood’s latest book Majic Eyes Only presents convincing evidence that extraterrestrial intelligence is significantly more advanced than that of humankind. For example, a leaked letter of 27 February, 1942, written by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to General George C. Marshall on the subject of one or more early UFO crashes in the United States, reveals: “I have considered the disposition of the material in possession of the Army that may be of great significance toward the development of a super weapon…

UFO Sightings

On 24 June, 1947, pilot Kenneth Arnold observed nine elliptical objects flying over the Cascade Mountains in Washington State. He described their movement as “like a saucer skipping on water” and said the objects appeared to be convex and thin in cross section, like a “disc” or “pie pan.” From his description, the press quickly coined the terms “flying saucer” and “flying disc,” marking the start of the first major UFO wave of the modern era. Arnold’s sighting was quickly followed by many others, driving public interest to fever pitch. In the ensuing decades, literally thousands of UFO sightings…
