Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Who Sleeps Beneath the Rocks? and its sequel (bound in the same volume), Hide in Plain Sight, are set in the Four Corners region of the American Southwest. A science fiction historical and futuristic puzzle thriller like none other that features, among its denizens, two distinguished archeologists; a professor who has escaped the stifling confines of the academy; National Park Service administrators; members of the Navajo Nation, including an iconic Shaman; uranium prospectors; a famous hermit; leaders of the Unified Galactic Command, an internationally respected California Institute of Technology cosmologist; and personnel associated with the infamous Area 51 and their all-powerful Men In Black, who report only to the President and, of course, a cleverly hidden Doomsday machine. ABOUT THE AUTHOR After an undergraduate degree from Oberlin, John Lankford served as assistant to a member of Congress. Returning to the academy, he earned masters and doctoral degrees at the University of Wisconsin and then spent a year as a post-doctoral fellow at the Union Theological Seminary in New York City. His professorial career spanned more than thirty years, including appointments at four academic institutions. After leaving the classroom he acted as assistant to the Provost at Kansas State University. Taking early retirement, Lankford settled in the high desert of Northern New Mexico. With two dogs Megan, who plays a staring role in Hide in Plain Sight, and Charlie Lankford devotes his time to writing and community service, including teaching astronomy to elementary school students and as a hospice volunteer. A practicing Buddhist, he is active in the affairs of Taos Mountain Sangha. After five books and forty-plus articles in the history of religion, higher education and modern science, Lankford turned to fiction. Who Sleeps Beneath the Rocks? and its sequel Hide in Plain Sight draw heavily on years of hiking, camping and river running in the Canyonlands of Utah.
