WRIGHT Matthew 
Man of Secrets

The Private Life of Donald McLean.
A biography of this hard-tempered Scot whose policies shaped New Zealand's colonial-age race relations, and gave rise to grievances that echo into the twenty-first century.
A government official who used his position to get land for his personal ventures, provoking war between Maori along the way.
He may even have used his power as Minister of Defence to order the shooting of his own illegitimate son; the right-hand man of Te Kooti.
McLean's role as the powerhouse behind some of the dodgiest land controversies of settler-era New Zealand is well known.
Here Wright delves into the private Donald McLean, a man dogged by his upbringing, wrestling with his insecurities, a devout and fearful man who felt himself inadequate before God and who never recovered from the loss of his young wife.

Fearless
cover image of Fearless : The extraordinary untold story of New Zealand's Great War airmen, for sale in New Zealand

The extraordinary untold story of New Zealand's Great War airmen.
During the 1914-1918 war, New Zealanders were keen participants in the new field of military aviation with 850 men, and a small number of women, held positions in the British and Australian air services.
Drawing on archival material from New Zealand, Australia and Britain, historian Dr Claasen explores the challenges facing the establishment of local flying schools and the journey undertaken by the New Zealanders from their farms and towns to the battlefields of the Great War.
In spite of modest numbers the New Zealanders’ wartime experiences were incredibly varied; New Zealand aviators could be found flying above the sands of the Middle East and Mesopotamia, the grey waters of the North Sea, jungles of East Africa, the sprawling metropolis of London and the rolling hills of northern France and Belgium.
Flying the open cockpit wood-and-wire biplanes of the Great War, New Zealanders undertook reconnaissance sorties, carried out bombing raids, photographed enemy entrenchments, defended England from German airships, strafed artillery emplacements and engaged enemy fighters.
By the time the war ended many had been killed, others highly decorated, some elevated to ‘ace’ status and a handful occupied positions of considerable command.

They advise us to become media free, to work in teams, and to eliminate the words should and try from our vocabularies.
We learn how to go beyond fear, how the original human was a magnificent being with twelve strands of DNA and twelve chakra centers, and who our gods are.
Startling, intense, intelligent, and controversial, these teachings offer essential reading for anyone questioning their existence on this planet and the direction of our collective un/consciousness.
By remembering that we are a Family of Light and that we share an ancient ancestry with the universe around us, we become bringers of the dawn, consciously creating a new reality, a new Earth.

This collection of essays was the last work planned by Ayn Rand before her death in 1982.
In it, she summarizes her view of philosophy and deals with a broad spectrum of topics.
According to Ayn Rand, the choice we make is not whether to have a philosophy, but which one to have: rational, conscious, and therefore practical; or contradictory, unidentified, and ultimately lethal.
Written with all the clarity and eloquence that have placed Ayn Rand's Objectivist philosophy in the mainstream of American thought, these essays range over such basic issues as education, morality, censorship, and inflation to prove that philosophy is the fundamental force in all our lives.

Finally, in a séance that included both mediums and the world-famous author and spiritualist Arthur Conan Doyle, deceased airman Captain Hinchliffe warned the navigator of the R-101 of its various structural problems.
All these spiritualist received warnings were ignored, and the airship broke up in flames as predicted.

DEYO Stan 
The Cosmic Conspiracy
cover image of The Cosmic Conspiracy, for sale in New Zealand

Recruited by the Illuminati, Stan Deyo was taken secretly to Australia in 1971 to design “flying saucer” propulsion systems with Edward Teller, father of the hydrogen bomb, and learned shocking secrets that send people to an early death.
Thirty years later he was able to recover his passport with help from powerul government contacts and return to his native America.
The stories he tells of his “time away” are truly extraordinary, and after literally running for his life Deyo reveals why “they” keep the alien/UFO agenda from the public, and that soon you will know who “they” are.
Many have investigated this huge conspiracy from the outside looking in; but only one has come forward from an insider’s perspective.
Described is a world of black budgets, super advanced technology, and flying saucers.
