Cover art and description for FROM HISTORY’S SHADOW!

First, I must apologize if this post comes out looking a bit weird. I’m doing it from my smartphone, which is proving to be quite the challenge.

Anyway, while I’ve been hanging out here in Denver, the cover art and back cover synopsis for my upcoming Star Trek novel From History’s Shadow was unveiled, and I think it’s rather nifty. Check it out:

From the back cover:

2268: Following their encounter with the mysterious Gary Seven in the twentieth century, the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise is startled by two intruders who have transported through space and time from Earth circa 1968. Incredibly, one of the infiltrators is a Vulcan, who asserts that he’s lived among Earth’s population for over a decade. The other represents a little-known race, and reveals to Captain James T. Kirk that she has spent the last twenty years working to bring about humanity’s destruction. It is then that Gary Seven’s young protégé, Roberta Lincoln, arrives seeking Kirk’s help….

1947: In the wake of the infamous “Roswell Incident” involving a crashed alien craft and beings from another world, Captain James Wainwright finds himself recruited as one of the first members of Majestic 12, a secret organization with two goals: Collect evidence of extraterrestrial activity on Earth, and develop strategies to combat alien invaders. And it is this very mission that will consume Wainwright’s life for the next two decades, driven by the knowledge that the danger is as real as the aliens living among us….

Well, then. How’s that grab you?

    1. It was pretty much exactly what I was going for so far as a retro/50s pulp paperback, or one of those UFO conspiracy books from back then. If only I could’ve convinced them to keep my original title, Aliens Among Us. 🙂


  1. You had me, at Roberta Lincoln… Love Teri Garr; always will. Sounds like a really good piece. I like the cover art; it’s refreshing… Sure got my attention. Since we’ve got Captain Wainwright (James MacDonald), I’m hoping to see more of General Denning (Charles Napier) and Nurse Garland, (Megan Gallagher) also… Maybe a surprise visit, by Gary Seven (Robert Lansing) and Isis (Isis-Cat/Victoria Vetri)… On a side note: Did you know the cat died in 1996 and that Victoria Vetri was arrested, at age 66, for the attempted murder of her husband, in Oct. 2010? $1.5 million bail was set, in LA…Interesting…


Lay it on me.
