Markets for this Novel
Those readers interested in UFOs and The Second World War, so this book has cross-over potential. These are some of the subjects that appear each day on the History Channel. Recent polls show that over 50 percent of the American public believe in UFOs. The History Channel is called the ‘Hitler’ Channel for a reason. There is a great demand for this kind of subject material.
This can easily be adapted to film. One possible answer would be a 3D animation like the popular Beowulf. It would be difficult to find the right actor to play Adolph Hitler convincingly, but picture the possibilities of a 3D rendered Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, Joseph Stalin and General George Patton. Sly has extensive experience in the production of 3D rendering and animation.
A computer game would be an ideal out-growth of The Rays of the Black Sun novel. The user could pilot either a field propulsion saucer or an Aurora. There could be an attack on an underground air base (Area 51) and a battle in the crystal city of Ultima Thule at the North Pole. There could be an air chase and a battle through the Hollow Earth, leading to the final battle in the skies over the United States.
