Larry Holcombeâs introduction into the world of Ufology came in the late 1950âs after reading two of Major Donald Keyhoeâs books; Flying Saucers are Real and Flying Saucers from Outer Space. A year later, after watching Keyhoe debate an Air Force officer on the old Armstrong Circle Theater, and seeing Keyhoe being censored when he deviated from the prepared script the Air Force forced on the showâs producers, Larry was convinced the Air Force was covering up knowledge of UFOâs. Those events started a fifty plus year avocation into the study and research of the UFO phenomenon. In 2006 he took early retirement and started his first novel, The Great River Disclosure, a thriller based on the government cover-up of an extraterrestrial presence visiting earth. His second novel in the Disclosure Trilogy, Satanâs Angel, was released this past fall in eBook format.
In researching background for the novels he became intrigued by a 1970âs NBC-TV documentary, UFOS: Past, Present & Future. The documentary endorsed the theory that some UFOâs were extraterrestrial and astonishingly the documentary seemed to have the support of the government. Larry was able to locate the writer/co-producer of the documentary, Bob Emenegger, and Emenegger provided him with some remarkable background information on the making of the documentary that involved the Nixon Administration. From this background the idea of a work of non-fiction to shape built around the documentary, the Nixon Administration, and the involvement of all modern presidents in the UFO phenomenon.
A detailed book proposal was developed and in the fall of 2012 the rights to âThe Presidents and UFOs: A Secret History From FDR to Obamaâ was purchased by St. Martinâs Press. Larry traveled the next year to research the book, which was released March 17, 2015.
In addition to St. Martinâs Press, the audio book rights were purchased by Audible, Italian and Japanese publishers purchased foreign rights, and Sony Pictures has optioned the film rights to the book.
As of this date Larry has done 32 radio interviews including Coast-to-Coast AM, Fox News Radio, and Fade to Black with Jimmy Church. He has lectured in six states and his upcoming two-part lecturer at The International UFO Museum and Research Center will be titled The Presidents and UFOs/New Evidence Supporting Roswell as an Extraterrestrial Event.
