Everything Imaginable

Roger Mannon - Project Stargate Insider, Psychic Spies, and Military Intelligence Gathering Secrets Revealed!

Episode Summary

Roger Mannon BIO This is me, Roger Mannon, a 72-year-old man, sitting alone in the dark writing stories for you. Once upon a time, I was a soldier, then I became a computer network engineer, and, then, I retired. Now I write stories as a hobby. This is the way the world ends. That could've been the name of my newest book: Strange Stories II - The Empty Earth. Most of the stories I write start as fragmented visions and ideas, birthed by a dream. As soon as I wake, the dreams begin to crumble and fall apart like clouds shredded by the wind What remains is little more than a seed, a small, fragile thing that might, with a little imagination, become a story. That's how the Strange Stories II collection came about. Strange Stories II is a book of three stories, two of them about possible climate crisis scenarios. Both are rather long for a short story. If word count counts (and I'm not sure it does), they are almost, but not quite, long enough to for us to call them novellas. The climate change tales are stories of how the world ends told by one person who lived through it all. Reading science articles about the climate crisis, the ways it might kill the world, sparked a dream that, in turn, became the seeds of a story. The scenarios examined here are remote and almost certainly will never happen. Still, the idea of very rapid global warming or an unknown virus emerging from a frozen sleep as the permafrost thaws were just too good to pass up. Once, long ago, the Army drafted me into a special, top-secret experiment to teach me to travel out-of-body so I could transport my mind to remote locations and gather intelligence from our enemies. 35 years later, I wrote a book about the experience. I called it "Secret Warriors, Psychic Spies: Redux." Redux because I had to rewrite the damned thing, like, five times. I was 70 before I thought to write about the unusual worlds found in my dreams. My second and newest book, "Strange Stories" is a compilation of nine stories. The stories, taken from my dreams and nightmares, transport you to strange, sometimes troubling landscapes. In them, you will find impossible ideas, devastating futures, and peculiar powers. Strange stories indeed!
