Global warming is something that we are very aware of, but have you thought about its impact beyond the planet? A joint project between NASA's Planetary Science Division and Penn State University have stumbled upon something in their research to find out whether alien contact would hurt or harm us. According to this article, aliens may destroy humans in order to save the galaxy.
Hang on, don't head to the bunkers just yet. This is just a theory that researchers think may happen if the effects of global warming on our planet start to contaminate the rest of the galaxy and universe. Other theories include an alliance between human and aliens (to ward off other aliens), indifference (we
I have been remiss in my postings because I have been working hard on upcoming books. Oh, you all have so much spookiness in store for 2012! But I felt I should pass along a tidbit that was in Friday's Writer's Almanac.
On this day in 1947, the first widely reported UFO sighting occurred. Experienced pilot Kenneth Arnold sighted "a formation of very bright objects" out the window of his plane while flying over the Cascade Mountains of southern Washington state.

Even though I've been working here for a year and a half, the books that I started working on in the early stages of the game are finally hitting the stores. These are books that I've helped develop, but the first book that I acquired won't be published until March. As I tell people who aren't familiar with book publishing, "It takes a while for the magic to happen." Both of these books will be available on February 8.
Some people are terrified of graveyards. I've always felt very calm and at peace while in a graveyard. The church we attended when I was young had the cemetery directly adjacent to the building, and we'd play duck-duck-goose in the unoccupied section during bible school
