I grew up in the San Francisco bay area. My haunts included Sutro Baths before it burned down in 1966 and Playland at the Beach. I remember the feeling of obsolescence and decay in those places and an awareness that mortals were not the only inhabitants. Some other haunts were the boardwalk at Santa Cruz and the heavily forested coastal hills that included our family cabin at LaHonda. It was there that my family and I witnessed the UFO phenomenon of 1952. Years later I moved to the intermountain west and fell in love with the primeval wilderness of the Uintah mountains and the sphinx-like granite sentinels that stand guard over alpine lakes and forests. Add to this my intense interest in World War II (I was born during the war). This, and more, caused a stir in my soul that needed an outlet through the medium of the written word.
After more than six decades of impressions, the urging of my grown children and the forbearance of my wife Lynette, I have decided to share my wild imagination with those who care to enter in to my inner sanctum.

Loved this book! A very touching story of a deep friendship with themes of courage and sacrifice, and good verses evil. It has a very creative mix of fantasy and action, and even a twist using some historical fiction which is my personal favorite genre of books. I usually don't venture very far into the science fiction genre but because this book has so many different genres inside, it is sure to please most anyone. A lot of typos? I only saw one, and I would notice because typos bug me! If there were a lot of typos maybe they've been fixed?
