It started with the arrival of a package that contained four notebooks written by Dr. Townsend-Brown and given to Professor Guido Galileo’s late uncle. On the cover of each of the notebooks was an odd symbol that keeps showing up in the most interesting places…from the Barry Goldwater Military Range in Arizona to the Intiwatana Stone at Machu Picchu in Peru. Professor Galileo and several of his students are on an adventure of a lifetime. They are trying to solve the mystery surrounding the work of Townsend-Brown before the men in dark suits can stop Dr. Galileo from revealing to the world the answer….an answer that will change our understanding of our past and how we move into the future. Come enjoy the thrill of discovery and danger with Dr. Guido Galileo, Elinor and his students as they experience the effect ‘of stranger things’ while traditional science is challenged by fringe science!
