Author Gilbert W. G. Cameron reveals his debut novel, “Second Chance: Book 1: The Dan Carlin Series” (published by Xlibris AU). This book forms a part of a series based on a theme that was inspired by his own sighting and close encounter with a U.F.O. in Northern Ireland in 1970.

On a hiking holiday in the Rocky Mountains, two American astronauts witness a UFO appear to land in a thickly wooded valley about two days’ walk from their place. They decide to try and find out as much about the landing as they can. They eventually find the craft in the middle of a wooded valley and manage to gain access to it. They explore the craft and find that its crew is dead; they take over the craft for themselves and set about using its technology to set up an organization on earth, which they hope will unite the governments of the world and put mankind on a path to the stars. But what will happen when they leave earth for the stars?

An excerpt from the book:
Well, that was no meteorite nor was it a plane but a U.F.O. if I am not mistaken! he thought, as he spun round and shouted, ‘Did you see that Luke?’ The excitement caused a slight break in his voice.
Luke was standing, shading his eyes with his hand and looking in the direction that the object had been travelling.
‘I saw it but I don’t believe what I saw!’ he replied.

Complete with well-drawn characters and riveting twists and turns, “Second Chance: Book 1: The Dan Carlin Series” is a fast-paced and gripping read that will captivate sci-fi lovers.
