68 VIA CONDOTTI: THE VATICAN SECRET SERVICE

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, March 29, 2019, In : New Book Release 
The three-book 68 VIA CONDOTTI series featuring Kate Keenan on special assignment with a cameo appearance by Koski and Falk simply had to be written. Years ago, when I visited and toured the Vatican, I was impressed by a nondescript entrance not far from the Spanish Steps marked simply "68 Via Condotti." Ostensibly, the extraterritorial headquarters of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, I became intrigued by rumors that the Order, with it's extensive diplomatic connections, might be hosti...

THINGS HEAT UP IN THE SOLAR TRIANGLE

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, July 7, 2017, In : New Book Release 
Authoring a book like THE SOLAR TRIANGLE (Savant 2017) about Koski and Falk, is a stroll down memory lane with fictional action and some punchy lines added. The saying 'nihil novi sub sole' ('there's nothing new under the sun') from the Biblical Book of Ecclesiastes, never rang so true with this, their sixth adventure. Weather control, or more specifically, solar energy control, has ancient roots. 


The Greek philosopher Plato wrote about the lost continent of Atlantis in two of his books, TIMA...

THAT'S ONE BIG HEAVEN!

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, May 6, 2016, In : New Book Release 

Shoot. He's there. I can see through the window. Not that I should be surprised, for he's always there (at least since my mom died, he is). It means that I'll have to sneak in, try and rush straight to my room in order to meditate.

Let me back up a bit. My name is Maureen (Mo for short); I'm sixteen, but I'm going to be a senior this fall 'cause my birthday's in September, so I'm really almost seventeen; and I've decided, only tonight, that I'm going to be a nun of the Swami Order, which ha...

VALEDICTORY

Posted by Daniel S. on Saturday, December 5, 2015, In : New Book Release 
     "Here's to changes," Calvin said. He nearly knocked the bottle from Earl's hand when they clinked.  He downed half the beer in the first swig.
     "Let's burn one," he said. He shook out two cigarettes from the pack in his shirt pocket, handing one to Earl. He lit his own with a match and then blew it out. He leaned in close toward Earl and the tips of their cigarettes touched, one transferring its fire to the one that was not lit.
      Earl wasn't much of a smoker either.  He drew more ...

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, April 24, 2015, In : New Book Release 
Corbenic's valley lay hidden, in a corner of Lystenoys close by the sea, and it was not wholly by chance that any man found his way there, including Launcelot.

It was spring when he came; the hills of the valley were verdant, the gorse yellow all about, and the evening mists fragrant.  She was not looking for love that day…

She was Elaine, daughter of the fisher king and of the lineage of the grail keepers, and the mystery of the grail, the sacred cup that lay within Corbenic's walls, was in ...
