About the Book

This third sequel to The Book in the Loft series takes the crews of the starships Explorer and Star Traveler on a wild goose chase into the far reaches of the galaxy. Their search to unravel a mystery that threatens to tear apart the United Federation of Galactic Worlds throws them in and out of reality. With seemingly no way out of their predicament, the answer comes in an unexpected way-but leads one back to an even more unexpected journey.

About the Author

A native of Poughkeepsie, New York, he attended Augustana College, Rock Island, Illinois and the University of Stockholm in 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 a childhood out-of-body flight of the soul, as what he described then was identical to what has now 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 several years in “another world” (Russia), where he taught English at two technical institutions. After his marriage to a wonderful Russian woman, he combined their two worlds with his imagination in stories that took both through time and space to other worlds. He and his wife now reside on this world in their home on the shore of the mighty River Volga.
