I would like to thank the reader in Germany who just bought a copy of Falling Star. Your purchase pushed my total sales for this science fiction thriller to 4,100. I appreciated your gesture and hope that you like the story.
I have two books available on Amazon; they are so different from one another as to be night from day. They represent the antipodes of my very eclectic mind.
The first is a serious science fiction thriller.
The other is a wry look at our strange world through the lens of someone who started cartooning at age 63 with no formal training in art or cartooning.
ONLY ONE MAN CAN SAVE THE PLANET; SMALL PROBLEM HE JUST DIED.
A very realistic science fiction thriller about the accidental discovery of mysterious, but mute, objects in the ocean in 1967 and what happened when they woke up in 1993 and began sending signals to outer space. Mike, pulled back into a clandestine agency to finish the job he began over twenty-three years ago as a navy ensign, is strangely attacked by gangs of what look like ordinary Americans. Attacks he can handle, but he is shaken when he learns that a revered friend has died. Will the death of Mike's friend mean that the secret of these mysterious objects will be locked forever in the dark ocean bottom?
45 four and five star reviews on Amazon US and UK. 98,250+ words. 354 pages.
This book is so realistic that readers often finish the book wondering, "if this story might not be fiction at all, but something very real and very disturbing."
Strongly recommended by noted U.S. book critic Alan Caruba, who says, "If you read just one novel in 2011, make it Falling Star."

ON THE OTHER HAND
If you want laughs, try the inaugural edition of cartoons from There is Strangeness in the Universe.
Most reviewers compare it with Gary Larson's "Far Side." Well-known cartoonist Rick Parker (MTV's Beavis and Butthead comic book) calls me a "very dangerous man."
5 four and five star reviews on Amazon since its release in May.
