Author(s): Tom Delonge
Somewhere between The X-Files and Oliver Stone's JFK, between Zero Dark Thirty and The Manhattan Project, in a world of deception run by the dark suits of Close Encounters, is Sekret Machines. The witnesses are legion, scattered across the world and dotted through history, people who looked up and saw something impossible lighting up the night sky. Among those who know what they've seen, and are forever changed by it, are a soldier, a socialite, a pilot and a prisoner. Featuring actual events and other truths, DeLonge offers a tale that is perhaps all too real.
