The Dragon and the Disc: An Investigation into the Totally Fantastic by Frederick William Holiday

| /

From St. George to Tolkien's Hobbit, in the land of faeries and the fathomless depths of Loch Ness, ravaging the countryside or guarding fabulous treasure, dragons have exercised a perennial fascination over human imagination.

This is a myth rivaled only by that of Bigfoot, the flying saucer, and the ghost. In prehistoric times, men painted symbols on cave walls that looked remarkably like flying saucer. They also drew forms that look a lot like dragons or "Mothman."

F.W. Holiday, author of "The Goblin Universe," "The Dyfed Enigma," and "The Great Orm of Loch Ness," now suggests that dragons and flying saucers are in fact connected, and constitute twin symbols of man's earliest religion.

"The Dragon and the Disc," brilliantly and convincingly argued, links the winged dragons of mythology with the Altamira frescoes, the Loch Ness monster, early Christian art, and modern UFO abductions, thus constituting a remarkable challenge to the inconsistencies of superstition and the limitations of science.
