Robert E. Farrell received his Bachelor
of Science in mechanical engineering from The Ohio State University,
his MBA from Western New England College and his Doctor of Engineering
from the University of Massachusetts. He is now retired from Penn State
University as Associate Professor Emeritus.
For most of his life, Dr. Farrell has been interested in
ufology. Twenty years ago, he began doing serious research for his
science fiction novel. He believes good science fiction is based on
good science. To that extent, Dr. Farrell is trying to follow the style
of Michael Crichton (Andromeda
Strain, Jurassic Park, and many others) and Arthur C. Clarke in his
Odyssey series. Recently, he has completed the second book of the Alien
Log series. It is entitled, Alien Log II, the New World Order.
In addition to his novels, he has written numerous technical papers and
three science fiction short stories that are included in an anthology, Sonoran
Mirage, published by the Writer's Round Table of Phoenix.
Dr. Farrell has lectured many times at universities,
science centers, MUFON meetings, book stores, clubs, and senior centers
around the country, and has appeared on numerous TV and radio shows
including Coast-To-Coast AM with George Noory. He and his wife divide
their time between Connecticut and Arizona. He is presently working on Alien
