10“I did not know it at the time, but on the night of June 6, 1998, one phase of my life was going to end and another begin.”

Art Bell, Coast to Coast AM, and George Norrey fans alike will be thrilled with this latest work from notorious recurring guest, novelist, author, and sometimes guest-host Whitley Strieber.

On June 6, 1998, in a hotel room, after a long day of appearances, he was visited by an unassuming elderly man who would ultimately change his life forever. With fantastical, capricious and ultimately true predictions of future events, Strieber details, to the best of his recollection, his experience and limited time with this mysterious man who was full of cryptic answers to unasked questions. The man, who is referred to now as the Master of the Key gives Strieber a host of future prophecies to contemplate and research in mind-blowing detail albeit, strange to Strieber at the time.

The Key: A True Encounter has been years in the making. In fact, Strieber has had this tale on his website for over ten years and only then did he decide to write this book and put this story out there. Strieber is known for his unconventional attitudes and unapologetic beliefs in all things paranormal.

For fans of his previous work, this biography will not disappoint!
