Earth Escape – foreword by Herb Baker

Earth Escape - 18 Sept 2017

Foreword by Herb Baker
Have you ever wondered how our universe was created? Was it the hand of God – or was it the Big Bang? Or maybe even some combination of the two? Or is there another explanation? If you’re interested in debates on that subject, this is the book for you. And for space nuts like me, examining those questions in the context of the most daring space mission ever attempted from Earth makes this book’s adventure one that I wish did not have an end.
I grew up a few miles from what is now NASA’s Johnson Space Center, went to school with the kids of the original Mercury Seven and Apollo astronauts, and recently retired after a 40+ year career at NASA. I’ve been lucky enough to meet and become friends with many American astronauts over that time and following along with this book’s brave, irreverent, plain-spoken astronaut Jim Tale reminded me of some of those real-life American heroes. No matter how dangerous and life-threatening their mission was, or how many unexpected complications they faced along the way, they were committed to completing their mission and always believed that the rewards were worth the risks.
Jim Tale is captain of the starship, Evolution, and he’s on a journey to a planet, 1400 light years from Earth in hopes of establishing a new home for the human race. The environment on Earth is being destroyed and there’s a real threat of thermonuclear war, so this new colony might be the only hope for survival of the human race. I found it striking that the concerns over the environment and worries about nuclear missiles and the future of our planet described in this book have never been more timely than they are today.
If you’re one of those people like me that believe that the odds are very high that there is intelligent life somewhere out there in our vast universe, this book will give you some ideas about what those beings may look and act like. There’s also plenty of danger, drama, suspense, humor, and more than a few surprises. Ad astra! (“to the stars”)

INTRUSION WEB COVER

Quantum Assault - A Keeno Crime Thriller

The Brits have James Bond. America – at least a dozen crime fighters, but Canada? Keeno McCole is the epitome of a tough Canadian crime-fighter who learned the hard way that not everyone in the world was a good guy. Part Metis, the indigenous First Nation of Canadian Indians, part Irish and part French, McCole learned at the age of four that there were monsters in the world when he heard his mother screaming as a man choked the life from her. The boy picked up a pair of scissors, stabbed the man and saved his mother from a brutal death, and on that day, Keeno became another person. His mother sent him away to live with an uncle, to protect his life, and in those years the pragmatic man and an Indian named K-Joe, taught the boy the art of survival; how to endure a desolate forest with nothing, how shoot a gun and most of all, Keeno became deadly with knife-throwing. In the years to follow, Keeno and his best friend, Jake Williams go on to become the axis of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Anti-Terrorism-Unit, going up against major players in the criminal arena, from domestic terrorists to large-scale syndicates – sending Keeno and his team on the most thrilling and death-defying chases across the second largest landmass in the world and into the international domain.
