Yep the fringe fiction writer has to keep coming up with new plots to draw more money out of the faithful.

How many of earlier predictions have proven correct? I seem to remember reading in his amusing
'The Mars Mystery' which he wrote with Bauval. He claimed the face on Mars was real.....that didn't exactly play out to well did it.

As I said before he should come out with a new book in 2-3 years and 'find' an exciting new place for a lost Civilization - I would suggest he find it in Greenland - but that has been done. Perhaps find one in the Gobi Desert or the jungles of central Africa?
