About the Book

This tenth sequel to The Book in the Loft series sends Neil MacBruce and the crew of the Circle of Planets’ starship Explorer to investigate a suspected world below the waters of an ocean covering the entire surface of a strange planet. Who or what resides below the water? And if there is something there, how and why did it come to be there? Explorer was built to ply the waves of space, not the waves of the deep. The mystery they set out to solve has answers, but they come in strange ways—and the outcome in an even stranger way.

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 a childhood out-of-body flight of his 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. And 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.
