Guru, I never saw this before.

Thanks for the "plug" ( and also blowing my cover :) )

I was searching for an old post ( two handed bowling) and came across it.

Yes, for all those Sci Fi fans and those who want to encourage kids to read, here goes

http://www.tasankar.com/reviews.html

My little motto is:

There are many worlds out there. Some of them can be accessed through reading. Encourage kids to read.


Mods - thanks for allow this.

And a good motto it is ...
They will all change the world in some manner ...

I pulled a Milton Berle here. Gary can explain that if need be ... :)

John,

Thanks for thinking that my words are worthy of borrowing/placing in your signature line.

It is quite OK to give the author some credit :)

So allow me to restate it:


"There are many worlds out there. Some of them can be accessed through reading.
Encourage kids to read" - T.A. Sankar

My, my - how time passes!

As the guru probably knows, I have written another book since -

Valeran Venture 2885. It was released earlier this year.

Lots of info on the author's website.

http://www.tasankar.com/


Here is one review -

The action-packed third novel of the 2884 series: Valeran Venture, does not disappoint as Xander and company becomes entangled in the politics and war of a world desperately fighting for its independence against technologically superior conquerors. T.A. Sankar unfolds a suspenseful, epic battle against all odds, with a group of child prodigies struggling to defend their home from a fleet of powerful battleships using just their mind power to control computerized missiles. Yet the fight remains deeply personal, propelled by a few strongpersonalities: the beautiful, fiercely independent girl-queen Calithea, the orphaned hero Ruan, and the maniacal, power-hungry Commander Voltar. Readers will be captivated by the story of
an underdog world fighting to remain free, and engrossed by the power dynamics developed among these unforgettable characters. From military officials plotting to undermine one another to the heroic Captains Kris and Yudis grappling with the morality of war to Xander’s ill-fated romance with Calithea, Valeran Venture is a gripping, multilayered story that explores power and conflict from the scale of the galactic to the level of the individual.

My my, how time flies

Another 7 plus years!

Bowling chat is still here. Dax is still here - well sometimes. The search button still works!

Thanks to Megamav and some dedicated members for keeping this site alive.

-------------------

I have written another book - NOT Sci Fi this time

I still bowl. Mainly THS ( my 300 games now stand at 25 and 800 series at 8.)
Added back to back 300's last year (Had the front 30)

And I DID manage to add bowling on my author's resume

(Pardon the self promo - and thanks to Megamav for giving the book a plug)

Dax's new book - The Undercurrent

Details see www.tasankar.com


Back Cover Summary:

It is 1988 as Dr. Paul Karan prepares to travel from Trinidad to Washington, DC, for a job interview. After he boards the plane, Paul senses something is amiss but settles in for the long flight. When a man seated next to him clutches his chest, Paul tends to him as the plane reroutes to Caracas. But what Paul does not know is that fate has just intervened and transformed his life forever.

When the plane lands, uniformed officers wrongly arrest Paul for smuggling drugs. Although he denies involvement, Paul is interrogated and thrown into prison. After he is slowly tortured, Paul is offered a deal to treat AIDS patients by day and supply the drugs that contribute to their decline by night. As he ascends to become a cartel leader, his double life becomes unbearable. Can he and his family escape alive or will his past return to haunt him?

The Undercurrent is the thrilling tale of a doctor’s quest to reject his new and unwanted destiny as a drug smuggler.


T.A. Sankar was born in Guyana and graduated from medical school at age twenty-two. He is an infectious disease physician who worked for many years in public health and HIV/AIDS. Dr. Sankar resides with his family in suburban Maryland where he enjoys astronomy, cricket, tennis, and bowling.

The Undercurrent is the thrilling tale of a doctor’s quest to reject his new and unwanted destiny as a drug smuggler.

I have drawn heavily on my experience as an Infectious Diseases and AIDS physician in writing this book.

It is available at the Publisher’s website Lulu in print and as an eBook. It is also available on Amazon. There are direct links on the author’s website at www.tasankar.com (It is better priced at Lulu as there are significant retail mark ups at websites like Amazon).

On Amazon, search T.A. Sankar in Books.
