M.E. Brines spent the Cold War assembling atomic artillery shells and preparing to unleash the Apocalypse (and has a medal to prove it.) But when peace broke out, he turned his fevered, paranoid imagination to other pursuits. He spends his spare time scribbling another steampunk romance occult adventure novel, which despite certain rumors absolutely DOES NOT involve time-traveling Nazi vampires!
A former member of the British Society for Psychical Research, he is a long-time student of the occult and a committed Christian who sees himself as a modern-day Professor Van Helsing equipping Believers for battle against the occult Principalities and Powers that rule a world in darkness. (Ephesians 6:12)
The author of three dozen books, e-books, chapbooks and pamphlets on esoteric subjects such as alien abduction, alien hybrids, astrology, the Bible, biblical prophecy, Christian discipleship, conspiracies, esoteric Nazism, the Falun Gong, Knights Templar, magick, and UFOs, his work has also appeared in Challenge magazine, Weird Tales, The Outer Darkness, Tales of the Talisman, and Empirical magazine.
*I'm often asked how I square my Christianity and "messing around" with the occult, as if I'm partial to bestial things with a goat under the amber light of the moon or something. No so. I'm a student, in the same way I used to study Soviet weapons and tactics back when I was a US Army officer. This gives my work a unique perspective no matter what your belief system. I don't judge. I just present the information and let the reader decide.

I bought the book last Thursday, and I found it to be not at all what I thought it would be.
That is to say I expected, by the title, a fictional comedy or
something, and instead I got a very thorough investigation into the supernatural.
The ultimate conclusions were something I myself had been inclined to think already - but I had never felt the need to prove the theory or even spend so much energy into researching it.
I will definitely recommend this to my friends - it applies logic and deductive reasoning to something which is, in almost all cases, an emotional and logically intangible subject.
Thank You for writing such a well-thought out paper on the subject - and at the same time interjecting enough dry humor and wry comments as to keep what could have been a monotonous read into something fun as will as factual.
Kudos to you, Mike!
