Rex Gilroy bibliography

Rex Gilroy has been a prolific writer on secret visitors, as well as on UFOs, cryptozoology and other topics.  Much of his material before 1995 originated as newspaper press releases or stories and these have been collated into his major publications, often with only minor editing.  Since 1995 he has produced a large number of books on these topics.

What follows is a chronological listing of the material relating to Rex Gilroy’s secret visitor theories.  I do not cover his URU theory at all, once that name appears, apart from the books.  Therefore you might find in the following list some early mentions of megalithic cultures but not the more developed material on Uru.  I have included together items where he is the author and other newspaper coverage where Rex is either the subject or a significant part of the story.  I think that is more useful than multiple lists.  I’ll periodically edit the list and include any other references that have been suggested.  The last update [Dec 2014] follows a visit to the excellent Cairns Historical Society resource centre and a raid on their well-catalogued newsclipping collection.

This is just the tip of the iceberg.  Greg Foster, who runs the Gilroy websites, notes that he has a file of more than 2,700 newsclippings by or about Rex Gilroy and his discoveries across all subject areas.  Hopefully this will be a more tractable sampling.

Origin, where Gilroy published for the first time to a wider audience, was a national Aboriginal community newspaper from South Australia.  This was before the enactment of laws for the protection of Aboriginal heritage in most states, and apart from a few other brief notices in its five year run, the Gilroy articles are the main contribution to awareness of archaeological heritage.

    I tried to finish this once but Rex has so much to upload to to his three sites..Have a nice Christmas..This is the actual newspaper articles photo..

  2. Greg says:

    HI..I am the Greg you talk about..I briefly did a summary site on the newspaper articles..There is hundreds of article links there somewhere Rex will have 12 more books out in the next 3 years..hes been quite ill of late..Two Yowie books and two on the URU as well..Showing their day to day lives and script which is now deciphered..Good to see you not having a go at Rex..He is a remarkable individual.. Some don’t understand his ways and therefore take aim at Rex for no reason..

    • Hi Greg –

      I think the best I can do is just add things in the Secret visitor line as they come along. I dont cover yowies, crypto / panther, UFOs at all so hopefully its more manageable. Sorry to hear he’s been crook as well.

      My job’s not to have a go at Rex Gilroy or anybody, but to act professionally. Rex and many others with claims all say they are dismissed by a conspiracy of silence / unbelieving archaeologists etc. I think they have a fair complaint, so what I want to do in the blog and also as one aim of the thesis is to give the material put forward as proof the sort of scrutiny and testing I would give any of my colleagues’ finds. If they come forward with something that they say will change everything that we know and turn the established history of Australia upside down, then ethically we do have to have a hard look at it and ask tough questions, and ultimately get convincing answers.

      And you’ve reminded me also to wish all of the readers [the stats say we’re well into second dozen] a merry Christmas. I hope your 2013 starts well and gets better as it goes along.
