About the Book

This sequel to The Book in the Loft and The Necklace finds the universe distorted and the crews of the Circle of Planets starship Explorer and the Surion battle cruiser Doras trapped in an inside-out world. During a short but decisive battle with aliens that appear from out of Earth’s past, the stars suddenly vanish, and when two of Explorer’s crew disappear, Captain Jon Varkon and Surion Captain Korron set out to find the cause that twisted space and time and changed everything they knew. Their journey takes them to the secrets of creation gone wrong - to loss, abandonment and death, with no idea how to return to the life they knew.

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 in Minneapolis 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 seven 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 a story that took them both through time and space - and to other worlds. He and his wife now reside on this world in Spokane, Washington, but plan some day to return to their home on the shore of the Volga River.
