I found this while perusing the Internet for information about the authors:

Quite disturbing. It seems that lack of awareness and a helpful network made isolated people like Gilbertson vulnerable for attack...
I've heard the authors have published other stuff too. When I'll have time, I'll look that up.
That seems likely. And any photographer knows how easy it is to make any place look sinister or welcoming in lightroom and photoshop. If you were to take a picture of Glastonbury Tor with a smiling group of tourists in a well lit area, it would suddenly look quite different from that overly dark picture from the book(to be honest, it looks like what you'd get from those shoebox pinhole cameras...)Glastonbury Tor is likely some kind of lay-line nodal point or something. It might have been easy enough to co-opt some kind of earth energies to 'give' him a heart attack at that place, or maybe he just decided to check out himself.
Whatever the case, I've been there and there was nothing creepy about it, a pretty nice place actually, a lot of people visit it every year.
I'm over half-way through the book. It is a quite remarkable and important work IMO in which a lot of things the C's talked about in regard to the "Aliens" (the how, why and so forth) is echoed strongly. It is also interesting that this book was published in 1980, well before the C's shared their take on reality on earth and the universe and yet what the authors describe is pretty similar and in line with what the C's have said. They also make quite a number of interesting points that never really occurred to me before, but make perfect sense. It is also noteworthy that the authors strongly recommend and mention Keel's work throughout the book and the few others that have come to similar conclusions [such as; that the phenomena seems to be more inter-dimensional (and demonic/religious/paranormal) in nature than extraterrestrial for example].
The book sort of summarizes the many disguises the phenomena seems to have adopted throughout history, always seemingly adjusting itself to the time era and what the observer of the phenomena believes. I'm currently at the part the authors describe (in a way I've read nowhere else) how the whole NAZI movement, and most especially leading figures in it, like Hitler, seem to have been directly handled and directed by those forces. Fascinating and very much in line with the C's!
As of now I think the book deserves a high rank on our recommended book list for UFO/History stuff, together with the works of Keel. I've heard the authors have published other stuff too. When I'll have time, I'll look that up.
It simply isn't that easy nor black and white. Ponerology is a far better tool to explain a lot with no need to invoke grand evil "conspiracies" on the human level, in a black and white fashion, in which everyone participating in such societies is in one way or the other (either consciously or unconsciously) necessarily doing or participating in something bad. Even quite the contrary can be the case I reckon.
New member to this forum and really enjoying it, is there any way I can get a pdf copy of The Dark Gods still, going down the rabbit hole and been reading a ton but cant seem to find this book.I created an optimized version of this PDF: splitted and cropped pages as well as with automatic OCR layer. You can PM me to get it.
