Collins, Tony

Open verdict an account of 25 mysterious deaths in the defence industry. Edited by Stephen Arkell

Sphere Books Ltd, London. 1990, Unpaginated prelims, 261p., photo insert section; 7.75 x 5 inch softcover. The bright red wraps bear a couple of small faint pressure marks. Faintest edgewear, paperstock a tad brown, endsheets yellowed spottily (from aging, not staining). No creasing to spine panel, a nice copy and one of the best we've seen. /// .. [CONTINUED FROM DESCRIPTION OF OUR LESSER COPY] . had in common defense industry employment, computer simulation of weapon design, aviation electronics, labs working on a smart Royal Navy torpedo that could lock on, deliver a nuke. (Turns out Soviets were working on an even more exciting torpedo, the Skval, that could do 230mph although it didn't steer too good.) Collins is implying --per Britain's official secrets act, he is extremely roundabout-- that a hypnotic entrainment system is battle-ready and operational, and Britain tested it on throwaway employees (US tests on GIs). He has only one case that has evidentiary content re this Jose Delgado / matador vs. bull / "physical control of the mind" stuff.. otherwise, the improbability of these suicides must do duty for evidence. Brief update, what about that most recent defense-connected suicide, David Kelly? it seems not have been spectacular, a slashed wrist. Kelly's wife leapt upon the no-conspiracy bandwagon from day one, unlike the puzzled spouses here. Then on 8 Oct 03, another such, a tv reporter, his wife also declares husband plausibly suicidal; I've only the recollection this guy said he was reporting from HMS Submarine but wasn't, a penetrable deception and scarcely motivation. Maybe the latest Systems-Planning wisdom is, Victim Suitability req. Suggestible/disaffected Spouse. . but something else may be going on. Is there for instance an EMW device that EXAGGERATES impulses that originate naturally? Jerry Rubin's death-by-traffic- accident put that notion into my head.. Meanwhile, a WARNING : while Collins' anecdotal accounts are gripping (he interviews victim's family and friends whenever possible), much of the book is devoted to rather pedestrian library-stacks research into the UK defence industry, and murky thoughts-in-the-dark about EMW, which will entail some slog
