Sandra Glenn Eric, have you ever seen the movie "Explorers"? I'm getting that vibe from you. :) We should talk.

message 15: by Sandra

Sandra Glenn I should add that the book I was working on before I wrote Dangerous, back in 2007-2011, was a novel about an antigravity program circa 1945-1959 and beyond. That should get your attention. :)
