ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS/AWARDS

 

BOOKS:

 

Below, I'd like to acknowledge some of the many sources that contributed to my writing the Primordium Series. 

 

That said, I am solely responsible for whatever twists and turns I applied to the concepts set forth in these books.  I am not a physicist, nor a cosmologist, nor a paleoanthropologist, nor a philosopher, but all of this background fascinated me.  Though I came away with a glimmer of an understanding of what these true professional wrote, probably any one of them would shake their head in dismay at my extrapolation of their work.  This listing is no doubt incomplete, but the best I can muster after purusing the shelves in my study.  I humbly submit in no particular order:
