Comments and Reviews
I have just finished The
Spirit Gate and The Lost Portal, and they were
fantastic. I did not want them to end, and I could hardly put
them down. I felt as if I were one of the time travelers.
I have read lots of books on the American Indians (a love of
mine). These books were far better than any of the
American Indian stories I have ever read.
Thanks for the great trip, and I'll look forward to your next

it had the most wonderful energy!

finished reading The Spirit Gate, and I enjoyed all
three books in the Ancient Secrets series. The stories were
well crafted and hard to put down. Logan did an incredible
job blending history and science fiction.
THIS is a GOOD BOOK!!!
easily intriguing journey into the life and times of a lost,
but then found again Native American civilization. Simply

I did not
want this book to end. Excellent! Enjoyable and engaging.
Congrats! WELL DONE!!
is a very talented writer! The book was an easy read as a stand
alone novel, and it drew me into wanting to read the first two
in the series.

All of you who like a realistic time travel novel─so
real it could happen─you
need to check out The Spirit Gate, a neat novel in a
trilogy of books about space, time travel, water shortage in the
Southwest, and answers about our past and future
that the Anasazi Indian tribes have held for centuries.
are in for a treat. Marvelous writing, great plots,
tremendous writer. Creation, evolution, faith, science,
space, romance, all live side by side in this fascinating
book. Do yourself a good deed today─check
─Sue, Bluffton, Indiana
Although I enjoyed all three books in the series, The Spirit Gate is my favorite. The author seemed to have fun writing the characters and adding touches of humor throughout. The whole Anasazi culture at Chaco Canyon was fascinating, especially the interplay between the ancient shaman, Cheveyo, and the modern day scientists.
─Connie, Porter, Texas
This fact-based fiction is intelligent, his characters are
people you come to know like good friends, and his inventive
story lines are original and well-researched. You'll learn about
Ancient cultures, modern-day political issues, and future
possibilities for the world in a way that is compelling and fast
reading. You'll reach the end of this story wanting more. I
recommend this book to anyone who enjoys creative and thoughtful
story weaving, and it's appropriate for nearly all ages, a
rarity in books today.
Portal is a MUST READ! Logan is not only a terrific writer; he
knows how to tell a story. His fully-developed characters, those
you don't want to say good-bye to, are picked up again in his
second book of his "Ancient Secrets" series. Definitely not a
Portal, based on folklore from the Anasazi tribe in the
Southwest, makes you fall in love with his characters all over
again in their modern-day fight to save their region from the
threat of water shortage. Both books hold your interest, leave
you wanting more. My advice to the author: write faster...I
can't wait for your third! Watch this new writer. He has what it
takes in the writing field.
The Lost Portal is a book that
answers a lot of important questions. Want to know what happens
when Los Angeles runs out of water? Ever wondered where the
Anasazi culture of Chaco Canyon disappeared to? Or, how do you
explain the myth of man-made global warming to clueless friends?
The Lost Portal has some good explanations of these mysteries
plus some ideas on how to save your marriage.
The Lost Portal has a tight plot that keeps you guessing until
the end, helped along by efficient writing. Logan never wastes a
word. He has made the Lost Portal a joy to read. Clear, crisp
sentences propel this adventure along like a Formula One car.
Oh, Logan has given us a hint of where humankind came from. What
more can an author do?
In sum, The Lost Portal is a modern day adventure story, a love
story, a how-to-do on major hydro-engineering projects, an
archaeological mystery and prophecy. It's like Indiana Jones and
Louis Lamour collaborated on a book. Okay, neither Louis nor
Indy were engineers, but Logan is one. A great read.

THE FIRST MIGRATION
reading Logan's profile on LinkedIn, I was intrigued about his
career as a novelist. So I downloaded The First Migration
onto my Kindle and started reading it. Couldn't stop! Just
First of all, I love science
fiction, but I also love a good story
─ and this one was great! Logan has
a real talent as a writer. I can't wait to read the other two
novels in the series.
─Mike, Austin, Texas
"Reminiscent of Tom
Clancy thrillers and Michael Crichton science fiction, The
First Migration . . . truly is a marvelous escape and a
journey into an intriguing place."
—Kurt Meyer, Noblesville Daily Times
“The story captivated
me from the first paragraph. It’s written with such a smooth
conversational tone that anyone of any age could easily imagine
being in these situations as seen through the eyes of the
characters. The First Migration is pure enjoyment
reading. It’s a thought-provoking romp into the future, as well
as a mystery about a real-life lost civilization. A top-notch

“This was an
excellent mystery as well as a thought-provoking book. Loved the
writer’s style. He made the characters really come to life for
me. It seemed too real to be fiction. Could not lay the book
down. A must read!”
—Steve, Pendleton, Indiana
“What a wonderful
book! I couldn’t put it down and read it in one day. My husband
was right there to pick it up. We both loved it. It really is a
great story, and we’re passing it on to a good

“I finished the book last night. Really
enjoyed it. It reminded me of Dan Brown’s work.”
—Bill, Boulder, Colorado
“I read the book while on
vacation. Couldn’t put it down. Loved it.”
—Judy, Salem, Indiana
“I’ll be honest—I thought the book
was going to be over my head or boring. But no—I really enjoyed
it . . . Bravo!”
—Sue, Port Neches, Texas
“The book was
wonderful. It grabbed me from the start and would not let go! (I
didn’t even try to get away from it). Thanks for an amazing
—Jim, Lapel, Indiana
“I want to read your book, but I can't get
it away from my husband—he's fascinated by it!”
—Diane, Fishers, Indiana
“A fast paced, well
thought out novel of how we on the earth came to be. Logan
assembles just enough science to make you think it might just
have happened the way he describes and, most importantly,
sprinkles his book with both believable characters, including
the President, and characters we care about. This is not a
science fiction novel but a novel about science and myth that
Logan handles well. No 'Bug Eyed Monsters' in this book. A very
“My novel, Stardust,
takes the reader back to
Indiana. Dan takes us back 200 million years to the
ancient super-continent, Pangaea!”—Jim, London, U.K.
