Our debut novel, Uncle Anton, is available!

"Alissa Schneider is a teenage violin prodigy whose family just uprooted her and dropped her into a new neighborhood.

Anthony Caine is an old man who lives next door with a murderous cat and an overgrown lawn.

Anthony hears Alissa's violin through an open window one night. He becomes her teacher.

He seems to get younger every day...

Alissa's mother does some research on the man next door with the vague accent, the man who gives away grand pianos to strangers and rides a motorcycle with a sidecar...

Bird Flu Apocalypse!

We're all going to DIE!

One-third of the world’s population might become infected with bird flu in a short period of time, Director of the Russian Academy of Science’s Virology Research Institute Dmitry Lvov said, according to Interfax.

“Any pandemic (flu) virus appears as a result of crossing between a human virus and a bird virus. A highly pathogenic monster emerges and it can affect up to one-third of the world’s population in a short period of time,” he said.

The flu is a very serious infection, which has existed among birds for millions of years,“ he said...

The REAL Real Indiana Jones: William Matthew Flinders Petrie

"And then came the last, and longed-for scene, for which our months of toil had whetted our appetites- the unwrapping of Horuta. Bit by bit the layers of pitch and cloth were loosened, and row after row of magnificent amulets were disclosed, just as they were laid on in the distant past. The gold ring on the finger which bore his name and titles, the exquisitely inlaid gold birds, the chased gold figures, the lazuli statuettes delicately wrought, the polished lazuli and beryl and carnelian amulets finely engraved, all the wealth of talismatic armory, rewarded our eyes with a sight which has never been surpassed to archaeological gaze...

Italian Judge Decides Not to Decide Whether Christ Existed

ROME, Italy (AP) -- An Italian judge has dismissed an atheist's petition that a small-town priest should stand trial for asserting that Jesus Christ existed, both sides said on Friday.

Luigi Cascioli, a 72-year-old retired agronomist, had accused the Rev. Enrico Righi of violating two laws with the assertion, which he called a deceptive fable propagated by the Roman Catholic Church.

"The Rev. Righi is very satisfied and moved," Righi's attorney, Severo Bruno, said. "He is an old, small-town parish priest who never would have thought he'd be in the spotlight for something like this...

Percy Fawcett, The Real Indiana Jones

Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett (1867 – presumably 1925) was a British archaeologist and explorer who, along with his son, disappeared under unknown circumstances in 1925 during an expedition to find what he believed to be an ancient lost city in the uncharted jungles of Brazil.

Fawcett was born 1867 in Devon, England. In 1886 he received a commission in the Royal Artillery and served in Trincomalee, Ceylon where he also met his wife. Later he worked for the British secret service in North Africa and learned the surveyor's craft...

The Gaia Hypothesis Says the Earth Is an Organism

"Viewed from the distance of the moon, the astonishing thing about the earth, catching the breath, is that it is alive. The photographs show the dry, pounded surface of the moon in the foreground, dry as an old bone. Aloft, floating free beneath the moist, gleaming, membrane of bright blue sky, is the rising earth, the only exuberant thing in this part of the cosmos. If you could look long enough, you would see the swirling of the great drifts of white cloud, covering and uncovering the half-hidden masses of land...

Michael Heizer has been building his "City" in the Nevada desert for 35 years.

If you're interested in DEEP TIME, ANCIENT ASTRONAUTS, NAZCA LINES, or all of the above, you have to check out this site on Michael Heizer. He's an artist who builds gigantic works of sculpture way out in the desert.

Part of the allure of Heizer is the fact that his works are so remote. You need a serious four by four to reach ""Double Negative," two great scars dug into the dirt.

The project Heizer is working on now (and has been since 1970) is not public and is unreachable. "City" is a series of "complexes" that look like something out of Blade Runner or one of Paolo Soleri's arcologies...

In the Twilight of That Empire

Distractions spawned themselves until the original interest was forgotten. Distracted by distractions, it was an empire of trivialities. Of recycled novelty and threadbare enthusiasm. Robots took care of everything, the harvesting of crops and the seeding of crops, and the designing of the seeds in automated clean rooms, and the killing of men and pigs alike. No one knew where their food came from, nor their siblings, nor their responsibility. The environment they created outran them. They abolished scarcity, and only pretended to believe in it...

How to Stop Nightmares

There is nothing with which every man is so afraid as getting to know how enormously much he is capable of doing and becoming. - Soren Kierkegaard

Murder, monsters, beasts, rapists, predators, clawing fear, mutilation, decapitation—nightmares sink their teeth into our night world, plunging us into a black sea of fear and terror. What could be the purpose or intent of such heart-pounding dream dramas?

The majority of nightmares intend to shock us in order to get our attention—shock therapy from what I like to think of as the “Authentic Self,” our essential nature, the real you...

A Prison Planet

I decreed my ‘twin’ into my life in early 1990. It is a story I tell in other books but I think even Edward House would have a hard time topping my gifts. She was the only woman with a brown card in California when she sat on the Governor’s Blue Ribbon Panel on Prison Reform. A brown card allows you access to all Penal System buildings. She had once been put in prison because the FBI could not catch her Mafia bosses who had duped her and many others in a Huntington Beach land fraud. She would not testify against them until they were behind bars because the Mafia goons had threatened to kill her two young daughters...

Illuminati in Kentucky

My fevered imagination includes the probability that Andrew Jackson and stories of the Bell Witch are connected with this kind of knowledge.

“In his 1806 book Travels In America, Thomas Ashe writes of his experiences with a vast cavern originally discovered in 1783 beneath the city of Lexington, 300 feet long, 100 feet wide and 19 feet high, containing exotic artifacts, a stone altar for sacrifices, human skulls and bones piled high, and mummified remains. The mummies are very strange looking and have red hair...
