Alien Contact (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: With Alien Contact: The Difficult Truth, the long-awaited first volume of what will eventually become a multi-book series,author/researcher/abductee Derek Tyler demonstrates that he is a powerful force to be reckoned with. Drawing on a lifetime of hardcore research and personal experience, private conversations with insiders and interviews with over three thousand abductees, Mr. Tyler has produced a manuscript which is unique, original and compelling.

Beginning with a description of the methods and techniques necessary to any successful study of alien contact, he provides an authoritative guideline which aspiring researchers will find to be invaluable as well as highly effective. After making the reader aware of the proper procedures to follow during a UFO sighting, Tyler then discusses the most extensive psychological warfare operation in history and shows how easily even the cleverest of people can be manipulated.

Tyler also includes descriptions of his own, previously-unreported, sightings. The reader is allowed to share his thoughts and emotions as he re-lives an extended sighting which involved two American warplanes. He also provides fascinating transcripts of off-the-record conversations with highly-placed sources deep within the black ops community.

A first-person account of his own abduction experiences is interwoven with a comprehensive and well-informed discussion of the alien abduction phenomenon in general, and the level of detail contained within his descriptions are without precedent in the literature. The reader is allowed inside the author's head, to share his emotions as the events take place. They are also made to understand the fear, frustration and sense of isolation which are unavoidable when one realizes that they have become an alien abductee, that their life has been forever changed. Tyler gives the reader a highly personal and brutally honest account of coming to terms with the sudden realization that, when faced with the technological capabilities of these aliens, we find ourselves to be utterly powerless and forever vulnerable, and that the presumed safety of our own homes is nothing but an illusion.

Alien Contact: The Difficult Truth offers a powerful, incisive and often terrifying look behind the veil, into a realm which is shrouded in secrecy and yet affects each of us every day. It is a document which is not to be missed and one which will forever change the way we see both ourselves and our world.

OCS (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: Amazon Best Seller - #1 in Astronomy, Astrophysics & Space Science, and Cosmology

"This book is a great intro to the topics of human civilizations throughout history, sustainability of our world, and astrobiology - covering the formation of life on Earth, the future of life, and explores the search for life elsewhere in the Universe." - Amazon review

Our Cosmic Story is a big picture view of our Universe and the potential it has for life and civilization. We start by briefly looking back at the story of Earth and its great civilizations, understand how life itself evolved Homo sapiens, review the challenges and risks that a species entails in developing a civilization and growing into a space-fairing entity, and then explore the makeup of the Universe to gain insight into the chance of other sentient creatures living elsewhere.

The quest to reach beyond the confines of our world is a natural consequence of being a very small part of a grand and dynamic Universe. Looking up at the sky instills within us some expectation that we are not alone, and we wonder if there is not something amazing happening out there somewhere. This sense of awe may not be exclusive to Earthlings; for in a galaxy truly far away, there could be creatures with similar musings as they peer towards our corner of the Universe. The idea that we share a common experience with others in the cosmos is something to keep in mind while reading this book.

Summary

“The surface of the Earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean. From it we have learned most of what we know. Recently, we have waded a little out to sea, enough to dampen our toes or, at most, wet our ankles. The water seems inviting. The ocean calls.” - Carl Sagan

Science, Truth, and Meaning:  From Wonder to Understanding (4 Book Series)
From Book 1: Modern science and scientific method, which became our proven method of deriving useable truths about our reality in the Universe, has its roots in ancient philosophy and in the work of the great Enlightenment thinkers, such as Descartes, Hume and Locke. Philosophical enquiry has enabled us to probe possibilities limited only by the creativity of the human mind. This volume provides a concise precis of the various philosophical schools and reviews the work of many of the great Western philosophers whose thoughts shaped scientific enquiry, from Aristotle and Plato to Gödel and Popper.

This is Book One in the four-part series ‘Science, Truth, and Meaning: From Wonder to Understanding’. Combined, the four books provide a scientific view of our place in the world, and address how science defines truth, moving from the thoughts that metaphysical philosophers have had about how the world works, to how their questions have been addressed by scientific method to reveal useable truths.

Plasma Science Basics (4 Book Series)
From Book 1: This set of 12 Workshops are a fantastic resource for anyone who wants some simple understandable explanations and instructions on the best procedures to get correct and effective Nano-coating, Nano materials and GANS materials. A collaboration between leading plasma scientists around the world, this is a planned 12-part series on Understanding Plasma Science – the basics.
Many people have come and gone with the process of the Knowledge Release over the last 4 years, since the Persian New Year of 2014. Many people have been frustrated by the rambling nature of the Knowledge Seeker workshops… After all, which busy person in the 21st century has the time to follow even just the 4 hours of the Knowledge Seeker workshops every week? Let alone the Medical teachings, the Agricultural teachings, the MaGrav energy teachings etc etc! There is such a mass of material and it is so minimally organized it is hard to get at the basics.
This long awaited series of workshops simply and effectively cuts through the mass of material and presents all the applications of the new Plasma Science; the Chemistry applications, the Physics Applications, the Biological applications. There are enough stalwart Knowledge Seekers, masters of the New Science, to sort through the best techniques to produce good Nano materials and GANS materials. It is time to go back to the beginning and make sure your basic skills are correct, because if the basic skills are not correct none of the applications; the health apps, the energy applications, the space ship apps, etc, will work…
So these transcripts are dedicated with much gratitude and many thanks to Jimmy and Lisa MacDonald, Dr. Rodrigo Vildosola, Sandor Kakasi, Rick, Vince, Brett, and all the other stalwarts who have experimented and developed the best and easiest ways to understand and build the new technology. Kudos and Blessings to you for being the first enlightened ones who will now lead the rest of us into a new peaceful era moving towards One Planet, One Nation, One Race.

Steps to Space (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: It seems like a routine tourist trip, taking wealthy guests to the luxury hotel in orbit. But Danish engineers Marius and Abby do not look like tourists, in their plain coveralls. The rich industrialist and his family seem to fit the part better. But everyone on this trip has other plans in mind, plans that will lead to the next big step in humanity’s spread beyond our home planet.

This book, set only fifteen years in the future and involving only realistic technology, is founded on the belief that humanity's future in space depends on proper engineering. Inspired the the engineering cooperative Copenhagen Suborbitals, the author hopes it will encourage young people to become engineers and scientists.

Hoax Trilogy (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: Paul Gillebaard's brilliant debut novel of the HOAX TRILOGY is a magnificent tale of seemingly doing the impossible, sending an American back to the moon...today.

China claims the moon landings never happened and that they have proof. Losing worldwide prestige is not an option for the United States. America must prove they won the space race of the 60s.
CIA agent and former NASA candidate Peter Novak, son of a U.S. moonwalker, is selected to fly a mission back to the moon against UN sanctions to set the record straight. With no manned rocket close to flying, America must figure out how to get their man into deep space undetected and without international help.
Restoring his father’s good name and the reputation of his country on a one-way ticket to lunar orbit sounds crazy—but its Peter’s only chance to break free of Earth’s atmosphere and fulfill his dream as an astronaut. Peter enlists a former space rival as his unlikely co-pilot, and the two battle to outwit China’s efforts to sabotage the operation and beat the Chinese back to the moon.

America is thrust into a race back to the moon--And this time it’s personal.
