“Where Are They?” by Steven Lazaroff and Mark Rodger – The Search for Spacial Kindred

Where Are They? by Steven Lazaroff and Mark Rodger (Book cover)
Steven Lazaroff and Mark Rodger certainly take the exploration of alien life and what it might entail far beyond most other authors in their non-fiction book titled Where Are They?

Obsessed with the possibility of visitors from the great beyond ever since lights appeared in the night sky before our ancestors, humanity has made many curious practical, theoretical and philosophical advancements in this sphere.

Lazaroff and Rodger attempt to bring us the sum of this knowledge and explore both sides of the argument as to whether or not we might encounter alien life forms.
