A few folks have had a look at my book, entitled “XCRATH !” ! Isn’t that nice ?

It’s a Science-Fiction novel, based on XENON’s anaesthetic properties.
The hooker is that Xenon is in high atmospheric concentration on man’s new planet. ***
It’s the chronicle of space exploration by a multinational crew, with Alien contact, Action, Ecology, Psychology, Philosophy and Medical Humour.
It is an easily readable 264 pages, including a glossary of names and Xcrath – English translations.

It just occurred to me – if you are interested in a 258-page SciFI novel with “how to exceed the speed of light” ideas, in which nobody dies and there’s a happy ending, do get it ………………..
it’s quite well written and slightly humorous ……………………..
I quite like it !

The only thing is that originally I wanted a Canadian publisher (“be Canadian: buy Canadian ! !”),
so I contracted it out to Trafford, a company in BC, with sales through Amazon.Ca.
Unfortunately the quality of the paperback was disappointing and I couldn’t get Trafford to change it at a reasonable cost.

Amazon.Com agreed to produce it through their “create space” site.
The CreateSpace (Amazon.com) product is MUCH better looking, printed on better paper and cheaper, to boot.

So get your XCRATH ! from Amazon.com, not Amazon.Ca .

Have fun reading !

Feb 23, 2022: A note regarding XENON has been added to the blog – it’s fascinating ! Check it out ! http://XENON, THE ATMOSPHERIC ANAESTHETIC

I am a Toronto-trained Urologist. I practiced in downtown Toronto, from 1977 to 1997, when I went to Saudi Arabia as chief of Urology at the Armed Forces (teaching) hospital in Tabuk. Returning to Toronto in Y2000, I switched to family practice. In 2007, began to prescribe Hormone Restoration Therapy and in 2012, I became a member of the American Academy of Antiaging Medicine [A4M]. I successfully wrote the A4M's written examination in December, 2013 and In May, 2016 I passed the oral examination, for accreditation as a BHRT consultant. In 2014 I began BHRT practice in Collingwood, Ontario and in January, 2017, joined the Stone Tree Naturopathic Clinic. Now I am 82 and have retired, but it seems wasteful to jettison my learning and experience: the medical establishment knows nothing of BHRT / Functonal medicine and I feel obliged to offer my knowledge in the interest of those who are willing to think outside the box. MY QUALIFICATIONS: MB, BS, (from UWI), 1964. LMCC 1969. FRCSC (Urology), 1974. ECFMG 1984. Florida license 1998 [inactive], ABAARM Certification [A4M], 2016. I am a Member of CSAMM [the Canadian Society for Aging and Metabolic Medicine], the OMA&CMA, SUSO, CUA, RCP&S/C. PRACTICE TO DATE: Consultation in Functional Medicine, including assessment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Andropause, Menopause, Teenage and Postpartum Depression/Panic Attacks, Thyroid Hormone malfunction, Infertility, Sexual Dysfunction and “the Undiagnosable”. ALL ARE WELCOME to read, comment or question!
