About the Book

'He's waiting for you!' With this enigmatic invitation, the Traveler finds himself swept into a world that is completely alien, yet strangely familiar. He is told that he will be returning home, but this new world is inhabited by elves, trolls and centaurs. Everything is changed! Magic, mysticism and superstition seem to hold more power than logic and rationality. And a disturbing truth emerges: Human history is being deliberately rewritten to disguise an invasion by rebels from another dimension intent upon harnessing humanity to their will. Opposing them is the sovereign government from this same dimension, whose leadership will not become directly involved in the struggle. Humans must be recruited, then trained to resist this distortion of history. Given the assistance of two extraordinary companions and a magical pendant, the Traveler is told to recover an item lost in the conflict since antiquity, an integral part of a more powerful mechanism, the First Jewel of Earth.

You will find yourself challenged to place this book within conventional categories. Is this fiction, fantasy or prophesy? Is this story set in the distant past or the emerging future? Is it possible that two alien forces have been struggling for control of human history since the beginning of time? Join the Traveler in pursuing this quest. Like him, you will not return home to the way it was!

About the Author

The boy has always had trouble staying fixed at one moment in time. While an overly active imagination is charming in a young child, a mature adult should behave better. Jim's interests easily flow from one topic to another, past, present and future. Fascination with the scientific method leads smoothly into the imagination of science fiction. A love of History and human culture compete with a sense of the mystical and the magical. His friends and family will be overjoyed about the publishing of this book; now someone else can listen to his flights of fancy!

A traveler at heart, Jim is comfortable at home or on the road, in foreign countries or in a local coffee shop. When some grounding in this reality is required, he is a general practice attorney in Colorado Springs, Colorado. His wife, Mary, has traveled with him for more than twenty years, and their son, Christopher, finishes out the family with his own travels.

'If we begin with the premise that there is a design to this universe,' says the author, 'the truth of its construction is just waiting to be discovered. Life is a journey of discovery and we are all travelers. I hope you can see yourself in the pages of this book. It was written for you!'
