Refuge for the Khymera is now published and available on Amazon as an ebook or softcover. It was perfect timing, with the recent congressional hearings on UFOs. They were like a blast from the past, the 1950s, classic sci-fi, alien autopsies, etc. But what do you make of it all? The witnesses sounded sincere. We all know the government has secrets, so why not another Area 51? I believe the universe is full of aliens, probably around most stars. The key issue is how can they get here?

In Refuge for the Khymera I have aliens quarantining the earth with some sort of massive photonic sphere around the solar system. It intercepts all elctro-magnetic waves that contain any proof of alien life. It is a massive deep fake like what AI is now starting to do. The Khymera are able to jump through space from point A to point B, sort of like the transporter in Star Trek. But, this is what I have to do in all my books to handle the problem of FTL, faster than the speed of light, travel.

In my first series, The Fifth Prophet, I use “hyperthreads”, multidemensional DNA strands from the body of a superbeing. God? In my second series, Perturbations of the Reality Field, I use a “dark matter crystal” containing an image of a soul, which allows the pilot to cross over the Reality Field, travel through the Ideastorm, and cross back to the physical universe at another location. In my third series, Wonderball Apocalypse, we remain on earth and deal with the limits of AI.

Each of these pseudoscientific theories for FTL requires an expanded theory of reality, a new science extending Einstein and others. Believing the witnesses at the Congressional hearings would require a similar shakeup of traditional beliefs. But, that has happened before. Remember when the Earth was the center of the universe?

I just had a page posted on, a unique new search site for books. The concept is very interesting. An author chooses a topic. Mine was “the best sci-fi that explores the nature of reality.” Then chooses and describes five of their favorite books on that topic. They get to add a brief bio and a description of one of their own related books. Someone searching for something to read will get an informed and knowledgeable short list of suggestions. The descriptions are more useful than standard reviews because they are all written by the spotlighted author, who is an expert in the topic. Just wandering through the vast labyrinth of fascinating books is addictive. Try it out!

Chap 23: Hello

Strangers meeting for the first time,
The collision of worlds
Like collapsing wave functions.
Which relationship will emerge
From the infinite possibilities?
How you doin’? Or
We’re from the government
And we’re here to help!
