New England Book Festival Honorable Mention
Runner Up San Francisco Book Festival
As told to the prominent mythologist, magic realist and UFO researcher, Dr. Raymond A. Keller, a.k.a. "Cosmic Ray," by the 1950s and 1960s Southern California artist, contactee, and social activist, Annabell Krebs, Lady Columba Venus Revelations is the fifth volume in the award-winning Venus Rising series.
In Krebs own words, "This book was originally inspired by a series of experiences that occurred during the period of mid-January 1957 through the end of August 1961. There is nothing in this book that I could have simply made up out of thin air. It is not so important that I, or some other contactees, convince you to believe in the existence of advanced extraterrestrials coming to visit us here on Earth, or even that they can carry us with them on their journeys through outer space, but moreover that we start to believe in ourselves.
"Above all else, we should always give new ideas the benefit of the doubt. I say this with respect to any concept or proposition, no matter how unbelievable at first glance and regardless of its source. We certainly do not wish to stand in the way of promoting progress. As such, I must let this story stand on its own merits. And if anyone wishes to apply anything herein to their contemporary life, then that would be their own responsibility. In the last analysis, any inspiration should always be credited to the Author of All Good, regardless of who the channel may be.
"Paranormal activity of all kinds is on the rebound worldwide. The portals to the Infinite are flung open!"

Lady Columba Venus Revelations by the accomplished Raymond “Cosmic Ray” Keller is an intriguing work of non-fiction on the existence of extraterrestrials and the role they play in the universe. It’s written in an as-told style from Annabell Krebs, aka Lady Columba: a social activist, artist, and contactee in Southern California in the 1950s and 60s. Krebs wrote her book in 1961, so this is a wider release to the general public. Though this is number 5 in the award-winning Venus Rising series, it works as a standalone read as well. Krebs explains that the experiences of advanced ETs visiting Earth aren’t fictional, and she isn’t trying to make anyone believe that they can transport people through space with them. She just hopes that people will have an open mind about these kinds of ideas. She makes a point of stating that supernatural occurrences are on the rise, and “the portals to the Infinite are flung open!”
Regardless of your beliefs in the paranormal, especially intelligent life on other planets, Keller’s book is interesting to consider, and explains the experiences and ascension of Lady Columba, who says she received spiritual revelations about the planet Venus and its inhabitants, and their interactions with humans. The book also details the nature of angels and how they minister to us all the time, even when we aren’t aware of it. The book’s message is to unite people all over the world, bringing beliefs and technologies together as one to understand life and better it for all. Columba describes what she feels lies beyond our superficial understanding and sees the future as a Paradise here on Earth. Though some parts of the book are a little challenging to grasp, you will get a significant understanding of what Columba is saying, and it is informative and enjoyable. It’s a very positive book, with descriptions of the planet Venus’s elders, the moons of Mars, and Lunarians, and there is a level of entertainment that sparks the imagination, with chapters on psychic connections with ETs, Earthlings who live on the moon, penal colonies in space, the mysteries of Mercury, and even a warning from space people. If all of this sounds intriguing to you, or you’re a New Age thinker with an interest in this subject matter, jump in and read Lady Columba Venus Revelations by Raymond Keller.
