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 WHITE SPIRIT (A novel based on a true story)  Irish convict John Graham is mistaken for a white spirit by primitive Aborigines after he escapes from Australia’s infamous Moreton Bay penal settlement. His is an epic tale!

★★★★★ “Disturbing, brutal, honest, unputdownable. It is real, very, very real with fascinating characters at the helm. Very highly recommended! Both men and women will enjoy the story.” – ‘History and Women’ org.

★★★★★ “This is a tour de force of a book… every page and chapter is riveting.” –Amazon Reviews

Nootka Sound, Vancouver Island, is the setting for our adventure novel Into the Americas. It was here that 19-year-old John Jewitt found himself captive after Mowachaht warriors attacked his ship and slaughtered his crewmates.

Here’s what Amazon reviewers are saying about Into the Americas (A novel based on a true story):

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!

A Gladiator’s Love is available via Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B082S2MKN3/

********************************************************

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!

In the opening chapters of our historical adventure INTO THE AMERICAS (A novel based on a true story) we describe as follows the arrival of young English blacksmith John Jewitt in Nootka Sound, Vancouver Island, in the early 1800s…

John and his crewmates returned their attention to shore as The Boston entered Friendly Cove. Nootka village came into view and the drumming sound that had heralded the brig’s arrival earlier intensified.

Mowachaht villagers could be seen drumming sticks against the exterior of their lodges. To John’s eyes, those employed in such a way appeared to be working themselves up into a frenzy.

On the sandy beach in front of the village, warriors were in the process of launching some of the twenty or so canoes resting there. John could see the Mowachahts were intent on approaching The Boston and he hoped they meant the brig’s crew no harm. The fact that all were armed and most carried muskets did nothing for his confidence.

Dorthy, who stood alongside John, noticed his assistant’s interest in the activity ashore. “Them the Mowachahts,” the armorer said. “Savages every one of ’em, so watch your scalp.”

John hoped Dorthy was joking. The expression on his face indicated he wasn’t.

Behind the charred tree stump, a solitary Aborigine stood stock still, his spear clasped close to his side. Moilow had been standing there, unmoving, since dawn. He’d been about to give up when he sensed a presence in the rainforest beyond his hiding place.

Moilow

A respected member of the local Kabi tribe, Moilow was, in many ways, typical of others of his race. Intelligent, dark, deep-set eyes peered out from beneath furrowed brows; his broad nose protruded above full lips, and he wore a black, matted beard to complement his bushy hair, which he’d tied in a knot; his coal-black skin glistened and his near-naked, wiry frame oozed strength and robustness – the end result of fifty thousand years’ evolution in this unforgiving, inhospitable land; his chest and limbs were scarified as a result of his following the age-old practice of lancing the flesh with shells; and his nakedness was covered only by a skimpy loincloth fashioned from the skin of a dingo, the native wild dog that ranges over much of the continent. The loincloth, once yellow like the dingo that wore it, had browned with age.
