A few months ago, I posted a 3-part blog [see www kengoddardnovels blogspot com] on the real-life origins of my admittedly edgy and violent 2nd novel, The Alchemist ... explaining, among many other things, that I wrote the book as a way of saying hi to a long-ago UCR organic chemistry professor of mine who had fatefully agreed to teach me (at the time, I was a brand new San Bernardino County de...

Jessica did a beautiful job of walking her readers through one of our more bizarre investigations. A nice insight as to how things really work --- and frequently go wrong --- in national and international wildlife law enforcement!

Ken When I wrote my latest fiction novel, Chimera [theme: the genetic creation of previously-extinct hunting trophies for wealthy collectors/poachers of illicit endangered species ... and the requisite hunting down the bad guys], I was thinking it was an interesting --- but decidedly far-fetched --- sci-fi plot that would remain far-fetched and sci-fi for many years to come. But after reading the latest issue of National Geographic Magazine, I'm no longer thinking in terms of "many years."
