Darker Stars

My latest book, entitled “Darker Stars” is now available in paperback. The book’s sub-title is “New Evidence: The Scope of Our Growing Solar System, Planet X, Invisible Planetoids, Gas Giants, Comets, Planet Nine, and More…”. Here is the description on the back cover:

“Darker Stars explores the often contentious subject of Planet X. Building upon the historically hot-and-cold hunt for an additional planet in our solar system, the author examines the recent resurgence of scientific interest in this subject, in the re-branded form of Planet Nine. The elusive nature of this object provides the impetus for a hypothesis about planet building in interstellar space, and associated phenomena. In particular, free-floating planetary mass objects and sub-brown dwarfs exemplify the anomalous new characters shaking the foundation of the classic star/planet boundary.

“Our solar system, too, is full of anomalies, strongly implying the presence of another massive planetary body. As our understanding of dark bodies in interstellar space builds, the author argues whether the existence of Planet X-type bodies should now be considered the new norm. With over 100 images and sources, approximately 500 references, and an extensive index, Darker Stars provides a robust and scientifically-based study of the re-fashioned outer solar system.”

The book is 376 pages long, and is published by Timeless Voyager Press in a 6″x9″ paperback format, available through Amazon.  There is a vast amount of information about the mysteries of the outer solar system within the book.  The book also discusses recent advances in understanding about the outer solar system, and hypotheses about Planet X and its re-branded corollary Planet Nine. I present a new hypothesis about how planets might evolve over time in interstellar space, and how this process may explain why Planet X has been so difficult to observe directly. Why assume objects beyond Neptune form the same way as those within? Drag and solar wind effects on dust will be different, even more so in interstellar space beyond heliosphere. New rules are needed for the outer solar system. #darkerstars

Weird Weekend North 2016

I’ll be giving a talk on Saturday 2nd April, at the Weird Weekend North 2016 conference, to be held at Rixton with Glazebrook Community Hall.  My subject of ‘The Hunt for Planet X’ is just one of a number of eclectic talks to be given that day.  I’ll also have a table of cheap second-hand books to sell, and copies of Dark Star with me.  This is a rare chance in the UK to attend a lecture about Planet X, and to discuss the work of Zecharia Sitchin, as well as the very latest exciting developments in the search for new planets in the outer solar system.
