ABOUT "Stranger at the Pentagon"...

"Stranger at the Pentagon" is inspired by True Events from the book of the same name. It was first published in 1967. It remains a UFO classic to date. 

Valiant Thor, a Created Being and Universal Envoy, met with President Dwight D. Eisenhower on March 16, 1957. This human Angelic came with a divine design for mankind on how to eliminate sickness, disease and poverty. Eisenhower put the enlightened extraterrestrial on VIP status for three years. He lived in a Pentagon apartment three stories underground.

During his tenure, Thor experiences the aggressive government officials who are determined to get the blueprints to his Victor Class saucer, a technological wonder. Thor must also deal with a negative alien race trying to infiltrate Earth under the guise of friendship with the US government. While he circumvents all this, he comes in contact with the Empyrean, the leader of 13 men who make-up the SSS: the Secret Shadow Society--the men who really run the world from behind the corporate curtain. The Empyrean has liaisons across the universe with malevolent beings who have groomed him on how to stop Thor, and gain control of his powers; powers that can create anything at will and transport him anywhere with a mere thought.

Author Dr. Frank E. Stranges first met Commander Valiant Thor in December of 1959.
