Okay, vast minds of obscure and secret, teach me! LOL! (Sadly I'm overseas, I can't do alot of the web that the system doesn't block, need help researching).

Anyone ever heard of this Book, in ACTUAL terms. In The Rule Of Four by Ian Caldwell and Dustin Thomason this book is the theme (like the Holy Grail and works of DaVinci in The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown) and I know The Rule of Four IS A WORK OF FICTION. But it leads me to wonder if the book at the heart of it really exists. Sadly, I can't bring anything up on Google or Yahoo searches because of my situation.

Anybody want to play ball on this one? LOL!

Yes, it's a real book. Maybe this is an exercise in futility, but here's a link to, where you can buy a copy-

Made me think of the Voynich Manuscript, which has been a real puzzler for several hundred years. I haven't read Rule of Four yet. I had it in my hands in the bookstore about a year ago and put it down. Forgot all about it until I read your post.

Awesome! Although I am angered, I'm happy at the same time. I can't get the links myself, but when put here I can use them. Amazing! LOL!

So the text is real. I read the Plot Summary, very interesting indeed. There is suppossed to be underlying themes and secrets in this tome? The starting fact that an acrostic is used leads one to speculate more could be, though that could have been the extent of it.

So, who knows about this in any detail? I'd really like to learn, but sadly will be relying on others research and links.

Thanks for any help!
