More About This Title It's About Time


A curious time shift takes Bon and his planet, Shonak, on an expedition into the nature of Time itself. It also sets the stage for open interaction between Shonak and Earth, which until the "shift" was the Earth of 1000 BCE. Suddenly, inexplicably, Earth was thrust forward in time by 3210 years. Now a modern, technical world, Shonak can finally relate to the people and can have an open relationship with them. While the time shift on Earth was indisputable, nothing of the sort happened on Shonak. Strangely enough, though, Shonak's surveillance of Earth captured every moment of those "new" 3210 years, while no one on Shonak had any memory of these new years. "Impossible" they all say!

This book takes you through more than six hundred years in the life of Gold Bon, as he tackles the issue of the time shift, Shonak's new relationship with Earth, the maintenance of their vast, secret infotainment collection apparatus on Earth, an alien space incursion, the discovery of intelligent life on another of their sister planets, the fielding of gunships in space with Earth gunners, and the things Shonak does to improve life on Earth.

And at the end of it all you might say it was about Time


Dennis retired from the Army in 2000, after thirty years, and five wars, if you count The Cold War and the Global War on Terror, to Vietnam, Desert Shield and Desert Storm, and the Peacekeeping mission in the Balkans. He is a retired Army Colonel, a combat wounded veteran, and not at all religious. The first part of his life was entirely conventional. He grew up in a non-religious Navy family, living around the country and around the world, and his father retired in Phoenix, Arizona when he was in the seventh grade. After graduation from Arizona State University Dennis went into the Army via the ROTC program and his first tour was in Vietnam where he was wounded by enemy mortar fire. He served for thirty years, half of which was overseas, and participated in the Gulf War and the peacekeeping operation in the Balkans. He was the US Army’s first “Cyber Cop” and when he retired as a full colonel in 2000 he went to work in the cyber security business. After the tragedy of 9/11 he was hired by a major city Port Authority to run the security program for three airports and the city’s seaports. As he got older things in his life changed. He married an artist with a PsyD and ordination as a minister in the Church of Spiritualism. He became a Reiki Master and studied spiritual things while being “coached” through the contents of what would become the book A Million Monkeys.
He found the whole thing difficult to accept, but finally translated the thoughts from these Spirits and published the book. Dennis accepted his role as Narrator of the story, not the originator, and wrote the book in the second person, since it is essentially a lecture to Humanity by a Spirit describing itself as a “Super Soul of great magnitude”. It should not be seen as religious although it covers religious subjects. And it should not be seen as the enemy of established religion. They are what they are and as creations of Mankind, are understandably flawed however well intentioned. Essentially they get it about 60% right. If you are looking for the answers, that is the actual answers to Genesis and the Meaning of Life, this is the book you need to read. The next book, The Crown of Happenstance, uses elements from the Million Monkeys story and creates the sister planet Shonak, and the character Bon. The third book, soon to be published, is called It's About Time, and fully examines Bon's relationship with Earth and also the matter of TIme. What is it, exactly? It has no weight, color, size, sound, feel - but it is real enough, or is it? Read the book to find out.

The story of this book allows us to gain significant insight into what it is that would make this a unique relationship with outsiders. A very interesting story of a human planet privacy invaded by outsiders "Shonakians". Their existence played a significant role in Earth modern technology and development. But with no one seeming to suspect their existence, however, if that were to happen, it would involve us having a different relationship that would also cause some issues between humans and outsiders.

The author has a creative imaginary mind and character maker. Good narrative and detail.
