Lateral Thinking “Fiction”

The secrets of original thinking … intimately revealed through fiction.


Advanced aliens watch over us

There is a dangerous evolutionary threshold we must first survive before they make contact.


How much does the American government know?

And more importantly … what is it hiding?


World-famous lateral thinker, Julius “Caesar” Romeo, has a secret passion … to explore the alien question.  His mission to outback Australia to prove the existence of UFOs ends badly, but a chance encounter is about to unlock … everything.

‘Your mission, Caesar … to save the world.’

Evan Armstrong is afflicted by dreams that warn of an apocalyptic future. A traumatic incident ends the dreams, to reveal fractured memories of something from his youth he was never meant to remember … an unintended alien encounter in Roswell, 1947. 

‘We made a terrible mistake, Julius …

We should never have trusted the aliens.’

Melanie Stuart is the glue that binds Caesar’s empire. Her religious beliefs cause considerable conflict with her boss, but as Evan’s story unfolds, something unexpected manifests … a bridge from science to religion … a union that promises eternal hope for all humanity. 

‘Should I make you a sign declaring “the end is nigh”, Julius?   Or do you think the aliens are going to “beam you up” and save you from the destruction because you’re so damned clever and figured everything out?’
