              THE FIRST MIGRATION                                   

                    by Daniel Logan

                                                                                                                                                                                       

Dr. Darren Stewart, world-renowned physicist               

in charge of NASA’s massive time travel

complex in the White Sands Missile Range,

needs to get a life but has no idea how—until

he meets White House deputy press secretary

Tracey Loring. After a weekend rendezvous in

Santa Fe, a romance blossoms between the two.

 

Concerned that the successful development

of time travel capability represents a threat,

members of an advanced civilization from a

distant time kidnap Darren. Under the authority

of the president of the United States, Tracey

assembles a skeleton crew and activates

NASA’s experimental facility to attempt a

rescue. Darren and Tracey are reunited but

become entangled in a conflict between two    

civilizations, each competing for its own survival.

 

In their endeavor to broker a peaceful resolution,

Darren and Tracey unravel the mystery of UFOs,

unlock the secret of the pyramids and discover the

missing link to our human origins.

         THE LOST PORTAL

 

Building on his novel, The First Migration, Daniel

Logan returns to the haunting red-rock vistas and

the ancient civilizations of the desert Southwest to

write The Lost Portal.

 

Having studied the pictographs of the Sinagua culture

at the Palatki ruins in Arizona and explored the cliff

dwellings at Canyon de Chelly and the Anasazi pueblos

in Chaco Canyon, Logan writes a fascinating tale of an

enigma left behind by an advanced, lost civilization.   

                                                                                                                    

The Lost Portal is set against a backdrop of a severe

drought on the Western Slope of the Continental Divide.

In the story,  Darren Stewart, manager of NASA's time

travel project, is approached by a former member of

the U.S. Geophysical Team in the Antarctic, who is

desperate for help in restoring his life.

 

Darren and the man begin a search for an ancient

craft—lost for more than a thousand years in the

mythology of Native American cultures in the

Southwest. In their quest, the two men seek the

key to unlock a timeless riddle.

ETERNAL JOURNEY

 

The interurban—an electric rail transportation system

connecting cities and towns—thrived in the Midwest

from the early 1900s to the 1940s.

 

The advent of passenger bus service, the growth of

automobile travel and the impact of the Great Depression

finally doomed the interurban. But wouldn’t it be nice to

have this service today?

 

Or perhaps—just maybe—an interurban car still operates somewhere on an abandoned route on an eternal journey!

CLIMB TO THE STARS

 

The sleepy town of Noblesville in the mid-1950s is caught

off guard by David Riley, a scout striving to earn a merit

badge for astronomy—one of the original 57 merit badges

issued by the Boy Scouts of America in 1911.

 

The stellar gate described in this story—the Gate of God—is

a real astronomical phenomena that can be seen on clear,

starry nights.

 

The confluence of ancient mythology, science and faith

within this great gate is the premise for the author’s

forthcoming novel, The Spirit Gate.

EASTBOUND -- A Route 66 Memory

 

Published in the Route 66 Magazine, Eastbound is

Logan's brief memoir about a tension filled family

trip home to Indiana from New Mexico shortly after

the war.

 

His grandparents sought to reunite the family after his

recently widowed mother fled to Albuquerque to begin

a new life.

 

Oblivious to the turmoil, Logan's three-year-old brother

persistently questioned his grandfather about when they

would stop sightseeing and head home.

 

"When the compass says we're eastbound" was the

answer Logan's granddad gave and would soon regret.
