"Sirs, Am sending this in hope you will insert it in an issue to keep from dying with me. It would arouse a lot of discussion. Am sending you the language so that some time you can have it looked at by some one in the college or a friend who is a student of antique times.
The language seems to me to be definite proof of the Atlantean legend. A great number of our English words have come down intact as romantic –ro man tic-“science of man patterning by control,” Trocadero – t ro see a dero- “good one see a bad one”- applied now together.
It is an immensely important find, suggesting the god legends have a base in some wiser race than modern man; but to understand it takes a good head as it contains multi-thoughts like many puns on the same subject. It is too deep for ordinary man – who thinks it is a mistake. A little study reveals ancient words in English occurring many times. It should be saved and placed in wise hands. I can’t, will you? It really has an immense significance, and will perhaps put me right in your thoughts again if you will really understand this.
I need a little encouragement."
s Bruce Lanier Wright notes, "The young Harlan Ellison, later a famously abrasive writer, allegedly badgered [Palmer] into admitting that the Shaver Mystery was a 'publicity grabber'; when the story came out, Palmer angrily responded that this was hardly the same thing as calling it a hoax."

THIS IS A PAINTING MADE BY PROJECTING A SLICE OF A ROCK BOOK ON TO A SENSITIZED CANVAS. THEN I PAINT COLOR ON THE PICTURE. I PUT IT HERE TO ACQUAINT YOU WITH THE STYLE OF ART,& THE HUMOR IN THE PICTURES THAT FILL ROCK BOOKS.
Since everything points to the moon having billiarded off earth at least seven times in the past, how is it they don't even know it fell once?
This door of escape stands open-mouthed, awaiting us...it is the way, the science, the methods and specifications of ships...by which many of those elder races, at least before the first moon-fall, evacuated earth...
Well, its their funeral and its their loss. Its their choice of ignorance above wisdom, of sloth above industry and drowning before ship-building. Like Noah, it saddens me but there really isnt much I can do about it, short of beating them over the head with a rock book...
In a 1985 Shavertron interview, John Keel, a longtime FATE columnist and author of such classics as The Mothman Prophesies and Why UFOs? had this to say about the Shaver Mystery:
"If Shaver and Palmer had not existed, there would be no ufology. It's that simple. Palmer started FATE magazine and he kept the subject alive during its darkest periods. The mystery had to be created before anyone could undertake to solve it."
If it wasn't true you'd go back to snail-breaking and enjoying your morning coffee. But with the imminent collapse of all society into the ruin of degradation and utter zombi-ism there is no choice, one must find a way to warn them, however mad it seems.
From every radio there is emitted a vibration of quite paralyzing potency, disguised as the latest rock sound. It paralyzes their poor minds, and makes them willing suckers for every fool sales scheme designed to overcome their poor, staggering incomes.
You know you have always wondered what and why was rock music? All at once it strikes you...it's part of the enemy invasion, and in their tunnels underground they creep on and across the land...inserting their sound tentacles into every home.
Then you remember...it all happened long ago and what the people and yourself are...is the residue, the aftermath of the take-over, the poor spineless recipients of the pottage left by those who took it all long ago.
It is pitiful and horrible, but you must not listen, there is still one sprout on the Tree of Ygdrasil and we must remove the worms from it and let it grow.
Ygdrasil was once, like the Chestnut, a great tree reaching everywhere through all space...the man-tree, with the fruits of all his genius flowering on every planet through all the long marches of sunlight and dark and emptiness and shadows and holes in the planetoids.
Oh well, Ygdrasil is long dead and man is but a remnant of diseased, ignorant flith on this one small ball of dung...what can it matter what one does or does not do?
"There was even a fan who got a girl pregnant using my name...and she came to the AMAZING office looking for me...until Palmer showed her my picture and she realized she'd been had.
"I always wondered what I would have done if she hadn't been able to distinguish the difference...if the guy had looked like me too.
one of the most influential science fiction stories of all time
Some successful predictions from this novel include television (and channel surfing), remote-control power transmission, the video phone, transcontinental air service, solar energy in practical use, sound movies, synthetic milk and foods, artificial cloth, voiceprinting, tape recorders, and [color=gold] spaceflight. It also contains "...the first accurate description of radar, complete with diagram..."
"A pulsating polarized ether wave, if directed on a metal object can be reflected in the same manner as a light-ray is reflected from a bright surface or from a mirror..."

Here we go again, MM, in to the murky heart of cunningly purposed narrative. The guy reads like a cross between C. Fort and Hubbard; you nailed it.
In terms of Shaver's placement amongst the usual band of 'creative writers' that we have been looking at I would say that Shaver definitely seems to predate them all. He also seems to me to read a bit like Dunsany.
cannot say that out of the millions who have read Shaver there were a dozen who truly grasped what I was trying to say. Ray Palmer least of all. I am always aghast at people asking Palmer for details about me, as he never got anything quite straight in this regard since I knew him. I have, for instance, no time for the occult viewpoint: spiritualism and so forth -- and yet ³Warning to Future Man," the very first story he bought from me, was changed to "I Remember Lemuria," which appeared in the March, 1945 issue of Amazing Stories and was later published between hard covers by Venture Books. The whole slant of everything I had to say was switched from the factual to the misty umbrella of spiritualism and reincarnation -- utter hokum to me.
Deros and Teros and Shaver's alphabet are real, actual physical blood and stink and awful flesh and nightmare in fact, but when Palmer got through with it,, it was all turned around into the dream world of mystical and the real/unreal religious fol-de-rol which never sees a fact as relative to anything like another fact. Nothing I ever wrote suggested any such idea; Palmer was just that sort of editor and I have struggled with it from the first.
After w re careful consideration and a short search in my files, I came up with material that somewhat counterbalances my former assumption, and levels the odds so that either of the superpowers could be behind it. What can be the reasons for this experimenting? I don't know, perhaps it was the idea to create a 'cosmic religion' in which the gods of old were to be replaced by fake 'space brothers' that could manipulate the consciousness of the faithful, and turn them into willful co-workers, for whatever purpose. Nothing good can be expected from either the CIA or the KGB as we all know.
.In any case, the controversy over this remote area of Mendocino County did not end with Ed John. In 1983, the Hare Krishna sect announced plans to build a towering 445 foot temple on the very same road - Highway 175 -outside of Hopland. The clip appeared in Shavertron 17,
As an aside to the Krishna temple announcement,the San Francisco Chronicle reported..."In 1980, police raided the Krishna ranch in Mendocino County and confiscated 300,000 military-type bullets, gunpowder and bullet making equipment...and automatic weapons."Why would blissed-out Hare Krishnas need all that firepower? Ed John said he only needed 30,000 rounds.
Even more bizarre, the suicidal cult minister Jim Jones had a ranch 22 miles north of Hopland.The San Francisco Examiner's religion reporter, Les Kinsolving in 1972 broke the first stories about odd happenings at the Peoples Temple in Mendocino County's Redwood Valley. The stories recounted how Jones had brought more than 40 people "back from near death" during church services at the Mendocino Ranch.
Kinsolving exposed the violent nature of the cult after witnessing Temple guards armed with .357 magnum revolvers as they escorted dozens of Bay Area followers inside the church.It does, indeed appear that this Mendocino County area has had its share of sinister, often violent"phenomena"...
Nov schmoz ka pop isnt anything spelled backward...but DOG spelled bakward is a mad concept of everything in one. If you take a dog and spell it backward you have a cup into which you can pour all meaning and all space and infinity and you rub it on your wounds and feel better and you use it for a crutch and pretend you have faith in it and it will keep you from being sane and miserable.
Radar spelled backwards is radar..

Okay, for whoever starred the post in re: Mendocino County. I'd really be interested to know why. Thanks in advance.
