In December of 1985, Whitley Strieber awoke one night to find himself in the midst of a close encounter of the third kind. He was left with lasting physical injuries from this bizarre and violent experience, but no clear idea of precisely what had happened. The experience led to eleven years of further encounters ranging from the terrifying to the sublime.

He is also the creator of the website Unknowncountry.com, which is the largest edge science website in the world. His radio program, Dreamland, can be heard on Unknowncountry.com and on iTunes, as well as on many smartphone radio apps. With an audience of over 250,000, it is among the most popular of all podcast radio programs.

Whitley is married to author and Unknowncountry.com editor-in-chief Anne Strieber. They divide their time between California, Texas and New York.
