James C. Glass
Here is a review of the book, as it appeared in Publishers Weekly:
"Glass (Sedona Conspiracy) sketches a universe in which the Lyraens, a religious sect following the 50-year-old teachings of Leonid Zylak, have begun to spread across the inhabited worlds, already engaging in schisms between the different branches. On Gan, the tyrannical Emperor Khalid Osman sees the Lyraens as subversive zealots. From a very early age, Trae Nowok grows up knowing he is different from the other young Lyraens, After he learns that he is Zylak's reincarnated son, Trae and his bodyguard, Petyr, are guided through a series of dreams and mysterious contacts to find the branegate, which allows access to other universes, and bring it to Gan to finnish Zylak's work. Trae's life and quest has a messianic feel, from his reincarnation to his role in saving the universe, while the novel as a whole tends toward a mixture of predestination and deus ex machina plotting."(ISBN 978-1-933846-33-0)

My new novel "Sedona Conspiracy" is now out from Wildside Press, and details are given at www.wildsidepress.com and www.amazon.com. NSA spook Eric Price is called in to investigate sabotage at a secret military base near Sedona, Arizona and finds himself in the middle of murderous intrigue over a mysterious aircraft being reverse-engineered there. Deception is everywhere: the aircraft itself, a CIA colleague, a mesmerizing woman, and apparent friends who have provided the aircraft for unknown reasons of their own. All are not what they first seem to be. This is a novel about military and other-world intrigue in a setting of new age culture and beauty.
Steve Perry: "Jim Glass knows how to tell a story. His latest novel, Sedona Conspiracy, is a thriller that grabs you from the start and keeps you turning the pages. Another first-rate tale, and an e-ticket ride."
M.J. Engh: "Sedona Conspiracy blends a sympathetic understanding of New Age culture with the murderous intrigue of a spy thriller, all within a framework of solid science fiction. Whichever your interests, this is a good read."
C.J. Cherryh: "A master writer with an authentic background in space science, a storyteller who gets his details right. Recommended."

Imaginings of a Dark Mind
Here is my second collection of stories, most previously published in magazines, but a few new ones too. My WOTF Grand Prize winning story “Georgi” is also included, as I celebrate twenty years of published writing.
“The pieces range from stories rooted in theoretical physics to stories bordering on the spiritual. What they have in common is a sweeping view of reality, an innate humanity, an incisive perceptiveness, and Dr. Glass’s distinctive story-telling voice… This is good stuff. I commend it to you.”
