Yes, Virginia…

…. there is a new book!

(if you have arrived at this page because you’re looking for a page from the ‘old book,’ we regret to inform that material is no longer accessible, because….)

The finished 2023 edition of the Townsend Biography will be called "The Man Who Mastered Gravity."
New title, new cover; click to embiggen

It only took 13 years (!) but the finished (i.e. edited, proofread and indexed) version of authorized biography of T. Townsend Brown has been completed.   After extensive editing and re-writing, the new version is currently undergoing careful proofreading and will be ready for publication in the first quarter of 2023.

A bit of how all that came to pass can be found here. 

The unexpurgated (and unedited) first-draft manuscript, which was released in 2009 under the name of Defying Gravity: The Parallel Universe of T. Townsend Brown has been withdrawn from circulation. That’s why you are looking at this page.  Hopefully all links to the ‘old’ book will be redirected here.

The new version of the book has a new title, it is now

The Man Who Mastered Gravity:
A Twisted Tale of Space, Time,
and the Mysteries In Between
