Riley Martin says it all started when he was seven... they took little Riley aboard an alien spacecraft to a huge mothership near the planet Saturn. Born 1946 into a family of sharecroppers where adults can not read or write. In 1953 two aliens took little Riley on his first trip to their mothership near Saturn. Riley's second trip was when he was 18. It was on this trip that they placed a strange looking headset on him... then in a matter of seconds download into his brain ...beautiful symbols by the thousands...then while Riley slept they downloaded the history of humanity, alien insights,and a whole lot more.Riley made friends with this little alien he calls..Tan.O-Qua Tangin Wann.

Tan released a block they had on Riley's memory. Then in 1987 Riley was driving on Interstate-40 and saw 4 saucers coming up behind his car he took four pictures of them then took those Polaroid photographs to a hypnotist... he was hypnotized to find out what happened. Then Riley wrote it down. It was a 593 page manuscript Riley called it The Coming of Tan.
