9781410764270: by the White Book: a Far Angelus Novel

What if today's bogeyman, the little bug-eyed aliens called 'Grays,' are not a contemporary version of yesterday's leprechauns? What if they have been abducting humans for centuries, shipping them off to colonize at least one far planet. How would that society have developed - customs, religion, language, government? Early in the 21st century, a young bride goes missing between tube stations on the London Underground. After years believing her abducted, Simon McGregor, her archaeologist husband, received an amulet in the mail with her name, G-I-N-A, scratched on it. A cruel student prank? Finally tracking down the isolated postal address, McGregor's car crashes into a van at night carrying a shocking burden, a comatose, alien Gray. McGregor with his younger brother-in-law, Jack Tagg, trace the van back to a suspicious but empty crash site on the moors. They meet Paullo, a tall, pale stranger with business on Earth who leads them to a bodybag on a monster catamaran ferry, to a nighttime UFO high seas rescue at speed, and into the middle of a political and religious power struggle on far-distant Angelus. There ancient Patrician ruling houses may have inherited awesome wildcard talents from alien Gray genetics labs. And that's just the beginning . . . .

About the Author:

R A Bragg has been a rockabilly dance band drummer, muscle-car enthusiast, career educator, and sometimes freelance journalist among other things, has travelled widely in western, central and eastern (communist) Europe and the UK, and has a post-graduate degree in Linguistics. The author is well aware of the fate of colonists in far-flung hinterland regions - he is a sixth-generation descendent of the first colonists to stormy south-west Newfoundland. Bragg's idea for this novel began while chatting with a Russian desident in a Moscow artists' loft! For the full story, check out the FarAngelus.com book companion website.
