United States
I'm an OLD dude (60+) and I like to collect interesting artwork for my own use. I'm an amateur aviation and space historian (wrote several articles and I just co-authored a book, "Phantoms of the Skies" about the pre-history of aviation), a huge fan of guinea pigs and prairie dogs, an amateur Ufologist (not the crazy type) and I like to appreciate beautiful women.

I'm married and I have just entered semi-retirement after 20 years as a CAD professional and technical document specialist with the Federal Aviation Administration. I am now pursuing a new career as a professional editor and technical adviser of aviation and space history. I no longer draw as a hobby, but I write a LOT of stuff, very little of which is suitable for publication (not strange stuff, just not finished).

So, if any of you great artists out there need some information about rare aircraft or aircraft projects, contact me at and I'll see what I can find for you.

Also check out my other website:… and

Check out the blog for my upcoming novel: "The Lunarnauts: The Rescue of Professor Cavor" at

Current Residence: Denver, CO USA
deviantWEAR sizing preference: 3XL-5XL (I like roomy clothes)
Favourite genre of music: Ethnic folk (specifically Irish and Russian/Ukrainian)
Favourite style of art: realistic
Operating System: Windows 7
Favourite cartoon character: Pete Puma
Personal Quote: For every person with a spark of genius, there are a thousand with ignition failure!

Don't want people to think that I have given up on the novel! I haven't. I am working on several other projects at the moment (one is a Sherlock Holmes short story) but The Lunarnauts is never far from my mind. Still working out so perplexing ideas for Chapter 11. Now, my intention is to plan for publication sometime in 2016, that will give me time to work everything out, get through various drafts, rewrites and edits and maybe, just maybe, find an agent willing to work with me.

So, the work continues, slow but sure. Someone once gave me some sage advice: "Draft, THEN craft." I am following that advice.

So, do you think Bedford and Party have found Cavor? What do you think happens to them? Is Cavor alive?

Is there anything in particular about the original novel that bothered you or left you with many questions? Let me know, either here or at the Facebook page (…).

My next post, I will tell you of some of the alternatives Wells was thinking about while he worked on the original. This information comes from the latest issue of "The Wellsian", the official newsletter of the H.G. Wells Society.

Stay tuned!
