The author, 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. Now 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 member of the British Society for Psychical Research, he is a long-time student of the occult, a committed Christian*, and author of two dozen books, e-books, chapbooks and pamphlets on esoteric subjects such as Alien Abduction, Alien Hybrids, UFOs, Conspiracies, Mind Control the Falun Gong, esoteric Nazism, the Knights Templar, astrology, magick, the Bible, the spear of Longinius and Christian discipleship. His work has also appeared in Challenge magazine, The Traveller Chronicle, Weird Tales, Empirical magazine, Midnight Times, The Outer Darkness, Tales of the Talisman, and The Willows magazine.
*I'm often asked how I square 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, just present the information and let the reader decide.

Another great little piece! The only complaint against the book is that it was too short and I would have liked to have seen more examples.

A fun book for me! I enjoyed it thoroughly and would have liked each concept developed a bit more, but that's hardly a complaint. I look forward to reading more by this author.

Very easy to read and logically organized. This author is obviously a very good nonfiction writer and proficient at giving examples. I might not have completely agreed with the content, but I respected how he presented his point of view. I will definitely be reading more by M.E. Brines.
