About the Book

The eighth sequel to the Book in the Loft series begins with a long and boring trip to the planet Surion, but before reaching their objective, the sudden appearance of a mystery ship throws the crew of the Circle of Planets’ starship Explorer into a conflict with those from two warring worlds. Deadly results follow, resulting in Explorer’s helmsman coming face-to-face with the grandfather of all time paradoxes. Neil MacBruce and Captain Jon Varkon are then faced with finding the solutions to prevent the paradox from causing timeline changes for not only everyone on Explorer, but everyone residing within the Circle of Planets star system.

About the Author

A native of Poughkeepsie, New York, he attended Augustana College, Rock Island, Illinois and the University of Stockholm, Stockholm, Sweden, later receiving a BA degree from the University of Minnesota, and an MS degree from Peabody Teachers College, Nashville, Tennessee. Since the age of five, when he “saw” Earth and the other planets from space in all their detail―twelve years before Sputnik―he has been intrigued and fascinated with flights of reality and fantasy. It was said he had an out-of-body flight of the soul, or a wild dream. But what he described then was identical to what now has only been “seen” by the Hubble Telescope. Later, his flights of reality were realized during a distinguished career as an Air Force officer, and his flights of fantasy became reality when he spent nineteen years in “another world” (Russia), where he taught English at two technical institutes. After his marriage to a wonderful Russian woman, he combined their “two different worlds” with his imagination in stories that took them both through time and space and to other worlds. He and his wife now reside on this world in their home on the shore of the mighty River Volga.
