    Originally published by Wm. Morrow, in 1995, Skygods is the saga of America's most glamorous airline - from its meteoric ascent to its plunge to extinction. Pan Am blazed the way across the world's oceans with its magnificent Clipper ships, launched the first international jet service, was the first to fly the behemoth 747, was the lead customer for America's SST and the Concorde, and was even taking reservations for the first commercial flights to the moon.

This book explains the third American revolution in the aftermath of the Tea Party's victory in the 2016 election.

    This is the story of the first airline pilot ever arrested and sent to prison for flying under the influence.

Lyle Prouse came from a WWII housing project in Kansas and a family where both parents died as a result of alcoholism. He rose through the ranks of the United States Marine Corps from private to captain, from an infantryman to a fighter pilot. He made his way to the pinnacle of commercial aviation, airline captain, and then lost it all.

    The seas were empty of all life. The Midwest was a desert. The western states fought wars over water as coastal cities sank under rising sea levels. What food was left was hoarded by the wealthy living lavish lives in the city states while those around them starved. Vin Tanner and the others in his settlement survived by scavenging the urban waste lands around the cities. There was no law except survival of the fittest in a civilization on the verge of collapse.

    Everyone wants to be a writer, and they want to know what they can do to make that dream come true. However, most aspiring writers do not understand how to position themselves so they are ready when presented with an opportunity. They identify themselves as writers but have no writing samples, or their websites and social media talk all about their paintings or music but say nothing of who they are as writers.
