Lizard Overlords

Could the remake of the vintage TV series "V" about reptilian extraterrestrials invading Earth in the guise of benevolent humanoids, which premiered this week, actually be a covert warning? Maybe this program is trying to alert us to the ancient, worldwide conspiracy of our secret lizard overlords, psychic-vampire alien reptiles who lurk among us after withdrawing (literally) underground. By all accounts, this complex of beliefs is serious, not a joke. Here's a website:

Reptilian Agenda

Now, I enjoy a solid, multilayered "theory of everything" -- for instance, the combination of demons, witches, werewolves, and vampires in the Homo lycanthropus species of Jack Williamson's classic DARKER THAN YOU THINK. In that novel these pseudo-human beings have been preying on us since prehistoric times and are responsible for all the evil that has plagued the human race. I adapted a section of my book DIFFERENT BLOOD: THE VAMPIRE AS ALIEN into an article about Williamson's novel. It's online in issue 4 of the JOURNAL OF DRACULA STUDIES:

Come to think of it, one form taken by Williamson's "witch-men" is a dragon-like winged lizard. Maybe Williamson was already trying to warn us in 1940?

The trouble with most real-world, allegedly factual conspiracy theories, unfortunately, is that they're not only implausible but *dull.* Shapeshifting, humanoid, energy-vampirizing, super-intelligent reptiles controlling us from the shadows are at least interesting! And, as Oz says on BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER upon learning that Sunnydale is infested with vampires, "It explains a lot."
