In the novel Doing the E.T. Tango: Dancing with the Universe, there are several visits to Cody, Wyoming. Cody is a popular destination for tourists and local residents because of the larger stores, restaurants and spots of interest. It is one of the largest towns in the Big Horn Basin and is within 1-2 hour drive of the other small towns in the area. This makes it a convenient place to go and shop for items that can be obtained in the smaller locations.
One more chapter from the book, in this chapter, the team has a close call with a drone and the FBI agent Steve Jenkins continues to get suspicious about what is really going on with the fossil hunting team. Only one more week until you can read the rest of the story of the search for alien artifacts.
While the team is looking for a way into the Army base, government agencies become interested in them and their activities. One of these government agents is Steve Jenkins, an FBI agent that gets interested in what Ellen and Bill are really looking for. In this scene from the book he and his partner Duke Feltman meet with Bill to remind him to do the right thing if they find fossils on government land.
There are many instances of artwork created by pre-historic people around the world. In the Big Horn Basin there is a site called Legend Rock that has petroglyphs carved into the surface of a cliff. The earliesdt carvings are estimated to have ben made around 11,000 years ago and they are considered some of the oldest rock art in North America.
Here is another example of John's writing. This article was published in ComputorEdge in 1989. Some of the references are a bit dated but the concepts still apply almost 25 years later.
The novel Doing the E.T. Tango: Dancing with the Universe takes place in the northwest corner of Wyoming. This area is called the Big Horn Basin. While the focus of the novel is on Ellen, Bill, Tim and Charlie in their search for alien artifacts, this area of Wyoming is a rural area that provides a remote backdrop for the story.
Here is another chapter from John's book. In this chapter Ellen's team is attempting to get rid of the BLM agent surveying their land. Ellen, Bill and Tim have some fun annoying the BLM agent John Brady while they pretend to look for fossils. In one more week I will post Chapter 16, which describes how the group will have to deal with drones flown by the military around the area. And only two more weeks until the book is released on Amazon and you can find out what happened with Ellen, Bill, Tim and Charlie in their search.
Ellen Goodwin's team needed a gadget guy to help them get into area 47. Bill Regal's friend, Tim Morrison, provided the expertise and hardware needed to accomplish that task. Here is a short introduction to Tim. On November 26th read about Tim and his role in helping to look for alien artifacts.
Most of the action for the book Doing the E.T. Tango: Dancing with the Universe takes place in the northwest portion of Wyoming. The book tells the story of a group trying to break into an Army base to recover proof of an alien landing and the government cover-up. As far as I know, there is no secret base and no alien spaceships or bodies hidden out in the far corners of Wyoming. However, there are legends of alien visitors, UFO's and other mysterious beings.
Many years ago John submitted articles to a local magazine called "Computer Edge". One of the articles that was accepted and paid for was Please... Don't Feed the Computer. The article was an early glimpse into John's quirky humor. I'd like to share this article so that readers can get another taste of his writing style.
