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 liked this short book, though I would have liked to see more of the sources mentioned in footnotes and therefore listed out for the reader's personal research if so desired. It's still a nice and well written read.

Enjoyed it! Quick read. Not so heavy that it would lose the attention regardless of your point of view. The only issue would be a list of references detailing where information was derived from i.e. "...crucified, long before crucifixion was invented...”, "...2,000 years later that archeological discoveries revealed the timing of that decree" were lacking except in one instance. Impressive, but without sources as backup it leaves it to question whether these statements can be substantiated. This however, has not precluded me to suggesting it to others, which I have via Face Book. Not needing to be convinced of the existence of God it did grab me because it does present the subject in a refreshing manner, with an interesting twist. YBIC
