I would like to thank a number of people who have assisted me in different ways while I’ve been researching and writing this book.

First, I want to thank my family for the love and patience they have showed me when I spent these early morning hours, and sometimes many hours on the weekends, researching and writing. Without their support I would not have been able to finish this book.

A person I want to thank in particular is writer, researcher, radio host, and musician, Robert Stanley (, who has been a real trooper. Throughout the entire researching and writing process, he has tirelessly sent me great links to websites, and many of them I have used as references in this book. Robert and I have also shared information and ideas with each other, something that has been both stimulating and helpful. He has been a true inspiration throughout the process.

In addition, I want to thank three persons who have assisted me over the years by sending me relevant websites and videos on the subjects of this specific book and the Wes Penre Papers. They have also provided me with important information on other matters of interest. Thus, I want to thank, in no specific order, Sabreena Barton, Gina Laudy, and Carol Cassis—a big hug to all the three of you.

I can’t possibly mention every person who has contributed over the years—you are too many to mention, but you know who you are. Rest assured that I am very grateful for your willingness to assist. Helping others is the true nature of humankind, and many people have showed, with great passion and compassion that this is true.

Last but not the least, I want to thank Professor Bob Stannard, who has spent endless hours editing chapter after chapter of this book, as well as having edited much of my previous work.
