QUANTUM ROOTS III
Fiction, Light Sci-fi, Satire
Date Published: March 2019
Olan Chapman returns in this third edition of Quantum Roots, as Calvin Cannonball Cooper, a vigilante from yesteryear who uses powder guns, throwing knives and cannonballs to neutralize the bad guys of today’s society.
History books fail to mention Calvin Cooper, but this defender of the weak and helpless, went down with Jim Bowie, Davy Crockett and William B.Travis in that 1836 slaughter we remember as The Alamo.
Acknowledged or not, Cooper lives again each time Olan Chapman dons a cavalry outfit, found in a New England attic overlooking the sea.
Matching Configurations is based on a belief that any quark assembly that spins through a series of worm holes, must format with a matching configuration triggered from this side of the Time Wall.
This 296 page novel contains some adult material not suitable for readers under 18.

Quantum Roots: The Vigilante Sightings
Federal agents, Alexis Grumman and Jeremy Wade track down a current day vigilante, whose fingerprints match those of a Korean War veteran. Author Kyle Keyes uses characters from two previous novels, to promote a theory that particle energy formats with a quantum root system, that can bypass time and space. Keyes believes that such fiction could turn to fact as we move into the age of quantum mechanics. Adventure fans everywhere should delight in this fast paced action story, that brings yesterday’s gun play back to settle cyber-age injustice. Synopsis: Jesse Joe Jacks was born sometime during the snow blizzard of 1923. The Lower Elk County, game warden died from a lightning strike on July 23, 1959, while wearing a sheriff’s star. Olan Chapman came to life in August of 1974 and found a computer career with a center city, electronics firm. Chapman drinks heavy and is haunted by flashbacks of an older sister, lost to an unsolved case of gang rape and murder. Jacks loved nature and lived to protect wildlife. He stood tall and fought to uphold justice. Jacks was also a crack shot with a firearm – any firearm. Chapman attends the theatre, plays piano and at one time led a march against the National Rifle Association. Both men have the same fingerprints, much to the chagrin of Lt General Alexis Grumman who heads the federal department for para-normal activities. Working with special agent, Jeremy Wade, Grumman breaks open the case when Chapman’s fingerprints also match those of the vigilante.
Quantum Roots II: Worm Holes
Published: February 2017
Genre: Fiction, Satire
In this sequel to Quantum Roots, the meekish Olan Chapman faces danger as vigilante Samuel Leroy McCoy, a US deputy marshal who upheld law and order in 1876, Dodge City.
The metamorphous holds an eerie transformation, cloaked with rolling sagebrush and horse whinnies from yesteryear, which causes DPA Director, Alexis Grumman to rethink the validity of worm holes.
“Creation is a worm hole,” replies Dr Norman Daly, “Atoms require hadrons to form a nucleus, and each hadron comes through it’s own worm hole. Two quarks form the bi-dimensional plane needed to support the hole. The remaining quark squeezes through this hole, after which the first two quarks follow to shape the hadron to a given genetic, configuration. The hole then closes to divide time from timeless.”
The gunfighter is wanted for multiple killings, a consequence that keeps the slender computer wizard on the run from authorities – and domineering wife, Ivy Chapman.
As in Quantum Roots, aka The Vigilante Sightings, Quantum Roots II is based on mounting evidence that people form from recycled energy.
