Erich von Daniken

This book was referenced in John Carpenter's The Thing, but also briefly considered for Star Trek 1? From Stephen King's Danse Macabre:
Harlan Ellison: Mark Trabulus siad, 'You know, I was reading this book by this guy named Von Daniken and he proved that the Mayan calendar was exactly like ours, so it must have come from aliens. Could you put in some Mayans?' I looked at Gene; Gene looked at me; he said nothing. I looked at Trabulus and said, 'There weren't any Mayans at the dawn of time.' And he said, 'Well, who's to know the difference?' And I said, 'I'm to know the difference. It's a dumb suggestion.' So Trabulus got very uptight and said he liked Mayans a lot and why didn't I do it if I wanted to write this picture. So I said, 'I'm a writer. I don't know what the **** you are!' And I got up and walked out. And that was the end of my association with the Star Trek movie.
