Robert Egby started his early life in England as an avowed atheist yet while suffering a disease which a doctor termed fatal, a spirit appeared and told him he would not die.
His great-grandmother, a Seer, predicted his life, but he refused to believe her—until it started happening. Doors opened as if by magic. Work in a unique film studio in England, living in a desert tent in Egypt, an act in a local variety show got him into professional broadcasting, journalism and news photography. He became an international correspondent meeting kings and killers. One gunman saved his life—twice. He was arrested in Baghdad for photographing kings eating and in Cyprus he scooped a major Press award for a newspicture.
Strange Cosmic energies called kinks stopped him from being in a major British train crash and sailing on a troopship that sank. A spirit voice warned him of an air attack and again saved him from walking through a Lebanese minefield. The voice warned him as bullets smashed through his hotel room.
In all this, he suffered from a negative ego but this was about to change. The Seer had predicted he would go west though he vowed he never would. Arriving in Canada, his work in broadcasting brought four awards for documentaries. Then he found himself living a double life, one professional, the other spiritual. With the help of Spirit Guides and a Guardian Angel he embraced a life of metaphysics, healing and higher learning, and in doing so dissolved the negative ego, the cause of all suffering. As predicted so many years before by the Seer, he set himself free and started to “work with the light” and help people understand Cosmic Forces. This book is the story of his personal quest. His life story is amply illustrated with photos, most of which are his own.
Today, in the United States he teaches a release from suffering and how to attain Cosmic consciousness. The author believes kinks in the Cosmos happen in everyone’s life but we fail to recognize these as opportunities and go with the flow. He became an international journalist and news photographer without any formal college or university training.
Over the years he wrote several novels and short stories that were never published--until now. His first historical novel is "Pentadaktylos: Love, Promises and Patriotism in the Last Days of Colonial Cyprus" is in print and ebook. Another historical novel, "The Guardians of Stafka: The Hunt for Romanov Gold in Canada" was published in December 2011 and is now available on Smashwords.

"Kings, Killers and Kinks in the Cosmos/ A Biography" is another very good and profusely illustrated read by former award winning photographer/newsman Robert Egby, in which he describes his time in the Royal Air Force at RAF Station El Firdan in the Suez Canal Zone and at Forces Broadcasting at Fayid in the Canal Zone, as well as on Cyprus and other locations around the world, along with memories of his childhood in England during World War 2. I found I could relate personally with this book having myself served for two and a half years with the Royal
Air Force at RAF El Firdan during the time described in the book and heard his voice on a daily basis on the radio in my tent when he made his broadcasts. I felt that I was sharing some of his experiences during the war because I also was a child growing up in England at that same time and remember very well the nightly air raids, the bomb shelters and the adventures I had with my school pals.
The author mentions many names and places which were familiar to me during my days at El Firdan so as one can see, this book is of special interest to me and to anyone of my age who experienced those times and/or served in the armed forces in Egypt and Cyprus. I have also read and reviewed Robert`s novel "Pentadaktylos" and have just purchased "The Guardians of Stavka" by the same author.
