The novel “Miracle Visitors” by Ian Watson was published for the first time in 1978.
Michael Peacocke is a boy when he has an alien abduction experience. When psychologist John Deacon subjects him to a hypnotic treatment, the memories of those events emerge fully, but Dr. Deacon interprets them as a distorted sexual fantasy, not believing that they’re real memories.
When strange things start happening to Dr. John Deacon, he’s forced to revise his interpretation of Michael Peacocke’s story. However, the situation seems to get more confusing instead of clearing up. What do these events have to do with an Egyptian religious group?
