The Gatekeepers

Winner of the Compton Crook Award 1996

Daniel Graham, Baen Books, New York, NY, 1995

Introduction by astronaut Dr. "Buzz" Aldrin

Hardback ISBN 0-671-87684-8 $22.00

Paper   ISBN 0-671-87684-8 $5.99

Roland Green of Booklist writes: "The action is exceedingly brisk, and Graham presents the hardware in enough detail to be interesting but not so much as to overwhelm the story.  Altogether, this is the best space-advocacy thriller to appear yet.  It should appeal to readers in both the space-fan and thriller audiences." Although fiction, this novel introduces you to the next twenty years of space development.

Welcome to the Hotel Novus Ordo 

Daniel Graham, Preview Press, Fairfax, VA, 2013

Paper   ISBN 978-0-9644495-5-8  $7.95

This work of fiction satirizes a church scandal that took place in Manassas, Virginia between 1998 and 2002. The chronology and many details come directly from court depositions and newsprint articles, and many of the quotations come directly from church-sponsored lecturers and publications. The story unfolds with a predator priest using his role as a spiritual director to seduce a woman in his flock. The local bishop engages in a sordid cover-up. A good priest is persecuted for helping the aggrieved husband. Welcome to the Hotel Novus Ordo suggests a different outcome than the real-life story. Irony and humor highlight the underlying causes of the scandal and lessen the pain of reliving the events.
