I have personally read Laurence Gardner's two previous International bestsellers, "Bloodline of the Holy Grail" and "Genesis of the Grail Kings" and I can see the sales of this book reaching the same acclaim.
"Realm of the Ring Lords" brings together for the very first time in one arena the mysteries of the legendary quests for the Ring and the Grail, from Arthurian romance of the J.R.R. Tolkien, these stories are enveloped within the magical lore of Elphame - however the myths are based on no mere fantasy, but on an engaging and continual history of real characters and events.
Time-honoured tales of fairies, elves and dragons have long carried a particular fascination which lingers in our collective psyche - a familiar but historical allure which is rooted in the far - distant realm of the Scythian Ring Lords.
Dealing with numerous aspects, from Sleeping Beauty to Robin Hood and Count Dracula, the author reveals how a prestigious sovereign heritage has been strategically suppressed by parliamentary and church dictate, facilitated by a forged document which has controlled all monarchical and governmental practices in Western Europe for over 1200 years.

Steven Greer Founder and Director of CSETI ( The Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence) which is widely regarded as the world's foremost authority on UFOs and extraterrestrial intelligence has written, what I consider, is the most definitive book on the UFO & ET subject . He puts forward the best UFO and ET cases backed up by hard evidence. Extraterrestrial Contact is a book that once you have started to read it you will not want to put it down until you have finished reading it. I must admit I have been extremely hesitant about even lending my copy to my daughter to read for fear of losing it. The book covers "Project Starlight", (the disclosure programme for releasing information of the proof of UFO/ET existence that Steven and members of CSETI have worked so hard on) and a lot of evidence for the existence of a UFO/ET presence. This is the man who has briefed President Clinton's first CIA director, key members of Congress, the Senior UN (United Nations) officials, very senior Pentagon officials holding Top Secret clearances in the military, the Director of Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA), Senior Military Officials in The United Kingdom, Europe and Cabinet members of the Japanese government among others. He has written the book in a manner that makes it easy to digest and brings home many factors involving the presence of the UFO/ET which others would prefer to stay hidden or not even acknowledge. Steven is a man of extreme courage, integrity, intellectual and sincere, and one who I am proud to consider a friend.
All copies of his book that Steven brought with him for signing at the Glastonbury Symposium 2000 sold within a few minutes. The book will be available from October 2000 in the UK and Europe from NEXUS Magazine UK (£16.50p + p&p) or the remainder of the world direct from CSETI.

Life Is For Ever
A Personal Investigation For Evidence of Survival
This book will offer enlightenment to all that read it. The author has spent nearly fifty years in research, enquiry, discovery and personal experience. The anecdotal stories he relates are so vivid and evidential which makes them so striking. They capture the imagination of the individual reading the material and I found it so refreshing instead of the questionable, bland and "run-of-the-mill" books that are available today in the shops and via mail order. James has read the sciences, philosophy, psychology, parapsychology and many paranormal subjects, with the jackpot question always in mind: What happens to us when we die?
My wife and I have both read the book, it is one of those books that once picked up one does not want to put down. I found myself reading it and then re-reading it, congratulations James. Apart from being an extremely good book to read it also serves as a reference book. It is definitely a book which makes it a number one book in my view to put on your shopping list.

DARK MOON, Apollo and the Whistle-Blowers.
by Mary Bennett and David S Percy ARPS
Do you remember staying up to watch the lunar landings? If so this after reading this book it will alter your thoughts. Were the Apollo moon landings the greatest sting in history?? Why did the Soviets not blow the whistle? An exhaustively researched book documenting the photographs with added lighting, the lethal radiation of space which seems to have no effect on man or machine and the enormous discrepancies between the stills and the film footage. Tracing the history of space exploration, the common factor linking both "sides" seems to be the presence, after WW11, of Nazi rocket scientists in the USA and the USSR. After reading the incredible, compelling evidence presented in this book you may think NASA has many questions to answer. You would be very right. At the very least we have been misled, at the worst..... This book is available in paperback. It has plenty of original NASA photographs and these photographs are used to explain the greatest sting in history. Priced at £16.99 (GBP) it is available from all good bookshops.
Crop Circles, The Greatest Mystery of our Times
by Lucy Pringle
Publishers Thorsons ISBN 0 7225 3855 3
After reading the book my exclamation was "wow". It covers, contains and explains areas of phenomena not covered in other Crop Circle books. The photographs are up to the high standard that has become recognised and known as "Lucy Pringle's". The book will fascinate a great many readers, even experienced researchers and newcomers to the subject. Her research into the electro-magnetic forces emanating from the circles leads us to consider more seriously the theory that the crop circle formations are "gateways" to parallel dimensions that could reveal potent secrets about the living earth and the consciousness of the universe. The breadth of Lucy's own experience and research will make even the hardened skeptics think again. Definitely a book to take pride of place on your bookshelf and one that you will hesitant to lend out for fear of it not being returned.

The Face On Mars: The Avebury Connection.
Presented by David Percy ARSP
I have watched several videos dealing with the subject of the Cydonia complex over the years. I must say that this latest one of David Percy's is by far the best and the easiest to understand that I have viewed. This update to the unfolding story of the famous face on Mars features the latest enhanced images of the Cydonia region of Mars and demonstrates the wonderful accuracy of its match to ordinance survey maps of Avebury, Stonehenge and Glastonbury and the links inside the Great Pyramid. David supplied the original graphics and computer images which enabled Richard Hoagland to bring to the worlds attention the remarkable discoveries photographed on Mars 20 years ago now. A video which is well worth watching and is available from David Percy's website or from NEXUS magazine. The cost is £16 (GBP). You will find Nexus and David's web site.
What Happened on the Moon ?An Investigation into Apollo.
by David Percy ARPS
Find a comfortable armchair, sit back and relax. You are about to watch the most informative, controversial and factual 222 minutes of video on what must be history's greatest conspiracy. Having read David's book "Dark Moon" I must say that I found this video a complimentary asset. I felt NASA's responses to questions posed by the film facts to be "feeble" attempts to gain back a little credibility. In this video there is new evidence revealing significant errors in continuity between the Apollo still photos and the live TV coverage which I remember staying up all night to watch. It suggests that NASA hoaxed the official record of mankind's first visit to the Moon. These new findings are supported by detailed analysis and the testimony of experts from various disciplines. Recent research indicates that the errors evidenced were deliberately planted by individuals determined to leave clues pointing to the faking of the record of Apollo. This is a video you will want to keep in a special pride of place on your shelf.
The video is a two tape set. Released this year and has a running time of approximately 222 minutes. Price £15. 95p and is available from Aulis Publishers. Web Site Email
