Membership of our Underground Knowledge global discussion group on Goodreads, the Amazon-owned literary site for books, authors and readers, has cracked the 15,000 mark. This milestone reconfirms its status as one of the biggest and fastest-growing groups on the popular site.

Predictably, Coronavirus-related topics currently make up some of the group’s most popular discussion threads, the tenure of them indicating most Undergrounders are highly critical of the authorities’ handling of the Covid-19 pandemic and sceptical of the lockdowns and the hastily-approved vaccines being distributed to combat the disease.

A sample of our Covid-related discussion threads follows:

Are the lockdowns and quarantines about something more than just the virus?

The CFR (Case Fatality Rate) is not the all-important IFR (Infection Fatality Rate)

Is the 2020 Corona saga a psy-op? (Designed to modify human behaviour?)

Doctors and Medical Scientists with contrarian opinions on the new Coronavirus (please only include links to statements made by doctors, scientists and medical professionals)

Do you trust Bill Gates (AKA the unofficial world authority on Coronavirus measures)?

Can Tedros Adhanom (the WHO head honcho) be trusted?

Coronavirus-related books of interest

Is Coronavirus (COVID-19) a man-made lab creation?

“Human Race Get Off Your Knees: The Lion Sleeps No More!” (Naivety? OR: The uprising against the COVID World Order begins?)

In our book Genius Intelligence we devote a chapter to polymaths and high-IQ individuals, reminding readers there are many whose IQ is higher than Albert Einstein’s. American author Marilyn Vos Savant, for example, has an IQ of 192; Russian chess grandmaster and former world champion Garry Kasparov has an IQ of 194. Incidentally, Einstein’s IQ was estimated to be between 160 and 190.

Keeping in mind the average IQ is 100 and approximately 50% of those tested score between 90 and 110, quite a few individuals have tested in excess of a 200 IQ score, including South Korean civil engineer Kim Ung-yong (210), former child prodigy and NASA employee Christopher Hirata (225) and Australian mathematician Terence Tao (225-230).

And last but not least is American child prodigy, mathematician and politician William James Sidis who had an IQ of 250-300. He graduated grammar school at age six, went to Harvard University at age 11 and graduated cum laude at the age of 16. Sidis, who died in 1944, could fluently speak 40 languages by the time he reached adulthood.

According to one reliable source the top five countries in terms of average IQ’s of their citizens are Hong Kong (107), South Korea (106), Japan (105), Taiwan (104) and Singapore (103). Further down the list, China, New Zealand and the UK share equal 12th position with a 100 average, while the US is in 19th position with an average citizen IQ of 98.

In the action-romance short story A Gladiator’s Love  dashing Greek gladiator Leonidas is looking forward to fighting for his freedom in the Colosseum of Ancient Rome. That is until he learns who it is he must fight.

A Gladiator's Love by [Lance Morcan]

★★★★★ “Rich in flavor and fine characterizations, this novella makes for a fine winter evening’s read. Highly recommended.” –Amazon Hall of Fame Top 50 reviewer Grady Harp

Footnote: Did you know there were gladiatrix, or female gladiators, in Ancient Rome? And there is evidence to suggest they were honored as highly as their male counterparts. History suggests many of them were ‘high born’ women of means… I guess they bred ’em tough in those days!

Alexander Karpenko is no ordinary child, and from an early age, it is clear he is destined to lead his countrymen. But when his father is assassinated by the KGB for defying the state, he and his mother will have to escape from Russia if they hope to survive. At the docks, they are confronted with an irreversible choice: should they board a container ship bound for America, or Great Britain? Alexander leaves that choice to the toss of a coin…

My review:

★★★★★  Archer’s Heads You Win is essentially two stories about the same people – one about a young Russian and his mom who, after a coin toss flee to make a new life for themselves in America, and the other about the same pair who flee to England to make a new life there. Spanning two continents and 30 years, the concept and the writing are brilliant with mind-bending plot twists guaranteed to keep you turning the pages. Warning, spoiler ahead: I note some reviewers are critical of the ending. I found it both startling and unsettling. Whilst it’s an ending that has apparently disappointed some, it doesn’t detract from can only be described as a brilliant read. –Lance Morcan

John Jewitt…the central character in our historical adventure novel Into the Americas. The scar on his forehead was left by a Mowachaht warrior intent on decapitating him. All but one of Jewitt’s crewmates were beheaded after their brigantine the Boston was attacked in Nootka Sound, Vancouver Island. The portrait sketch, incidentally, was drawn years after these dramatic events.

Into the Americas (A novel based on a true story) is a gritty, real-life adventure based on one of history’s greatest survival stories. It was inspired by the diary entries of young English blacksmith John Jewitt during his time aboard ship and also during his sojourn at Nootka Sound, on North America’s western seaboard, from 1802 to 1805.

It’s a tale of two vastly different cultures – indigenous North American and European civilization – colliding head on. It is also a Romeo and Juliet story set in the wilderness.

Into the Americas is available via Amazon as a paperback and Kindle ebook. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00YJKM51E/

You can read the opening chapters if you click on the book’s cover on its Amazon page… Happy reading!
