Local author E.J. Wilson is going to have a booth at Galacticon. Wilson is known for his book, “Ultimate Guide to Roswell UFO Crash,” which he wrote with Noe Torres, an author and researcher who is a member of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).
“It is the No. 1 selling UFO book in Roswell and we’re very proud of that,” Wilson said.
A life-long fan of the original Star Trek TV series, Wilson wrote the book “Star Trek: exploring the Original Series.” The book takes its readers behind the scenes of the Trek universe and is packed with reviews of each episode, trivia, goofs, bios, the women, the redshirts (stock characters in fiction who die soon after being introduced) and hundreds of photos.
Wilson presented this book at the 2016 Galacticon.
His newest book, “The Mountain Wakes,” is about two clans of primitive tribes living on and near a mountain. One tribe lives in the forest, the other on the mountain and they rarely mix. Wilson takes on the subject with charm and vivid description of the life and survival of the tribe members. Life is not easy, but there is contentment, that is, until “The Mountain Wakes.”
Wilson’s style always gives the reader twists and turns that nobody sees coming. Will the clans find a hero to calm the raging mountain?
For authenticity, Wilson created a language of the Du’ee clans — Du’ee meaning “the people.” However, every word or sentence has the translation in italics and does not distract from the story. There is a saying or poem befitting each chapter as introduction. The most touching is from Marcel Proust, “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes,” on chapter 9.
Wilson will have his books, including his newest one, at Galacticon, which will be held at the Roswell Mall on July 6 and 7. The book are also available on Amazon and Kindle and at varmint.com.
