About me

I am a retired carpenter who, having a fascination with both the source of the flood tales i.e. the Biblical Flood and Atlantis, and the source of the British Imperial system of measures, began research into the subjects way back in the early 1980s. Given the time involved for research it is clear that these works are not the quickly garnered assembly of frequently dissociated bits and pieces that occasionally have been termed history in recent decades. These are serious works that at long last reveal just what these mythical tales have in common and the commonality is far from that which most would expect. The final results of the research are found in the two works Deluge and Measurements of the Gods under the generic title of Megalith, Masonry, Myth and Measure.
These works have been examined by a number of editors of major British publishing houses but unfortunately the timing was wrong and while a number of these people actually praised the works, it seems that this element of history, in fact history in general, is currently not very fashionable with publishers. As my literary agent stated, it’s a pity but we can’t buck the market. So here we are on the web.

    Harry Sivertsen posted a message to Oliver Brooks Hi Oli, I have mailed you separately but in case you miss it...I have updated the books again ...Hi Oli, I have mailed you separately but in case you miss it...I have updated the books again replete with new ISBN numbers. Can you please update the covers ISBN numbers as I do not have the means to do bar codes! I cannot imagine any further alterations now and the latest only came about due to a need for further explanation in one section. I had earlier been working from secondary sources on one subject that ought to have given the required info but in fact were themselves erroneous.[well referenced by others however so the errors get replicated] I now have prime sources to cite and work with...a big difference. Over 2520 reads on the books and articles on two other sites, most annoying that folks are not buying but there we are. I still have a few tricks to try and the word is slowly spreading with the books being recommended in a few places. Health permitting, next year I intend attempting the mammoth technical challenge of combining the two works into a single volume that is not oversize....wish me luck! Please bill me for whatever I owe you and I shall in any case buy the updated volumes shortly when all is sorted. Thanks once again, best wishes to all at CN Harry (more) and won+3

The folks here at CN are about the best you will find in this game but be patient,this is not their only publishing project and there are quite a lot of us writers to deal with so occasionally it takes a while to get a reply to a query. I have been here since late 2009 and have nothing but praise for Oli and Anna although they have probably felt like kicking me a few times! While for some reaon I cannoty fathom my work on CN seems not to be attracying interest ouitside I am getting quite a lot of attention so patience being a virtue I am hoping that my my next attempt, a combined version of my two works, will show better results. THis wont be ready for over a year at the earliest but the attempt keeps me from loitering around street corners getting into trouble!! Best of luck with the writing Cheers Harry (more) and won+3

By removing and starting afresh [same copy as I was attempting to apply as update] all went smoothly. Now one little problem persists, ISBN. The system demands that I purchase ISBN when I have already done this and for the past three years it has been displayed on the cover and inside of both my books. As this is registered anyway, or there is no point in it in the first place, how do I get this number registered in your system as it used to be? Cheers Harry (more) and gained+3
