The thrilling climax of The Ashoka Chronicles epic trilogy. A Cosmic Event Is About To Happen ~ When Dimensions Collide... Time Is No More. “The Great Debacle was, as predicted, a time of unspeakable horrors. The Four Horsemen mercilessly ravaged the planet, their ferocity intensified by natural disasters without end. The Master tells me that my work is to continue writing, not as a futurist but as a historian who records the end of time. He says it will be the last history book ever to be written. “There is another world that emerges in my dreams even more vivid than the waking nightmares of the Third Dimension: It is a world eerily illuminated by a fiery comet.” Arthur Asquith-Doyle, 2016 A.D. The Third World War is reaching a climax as the Western Coalition and the Empire of China risk the annihilation of the human race in their quest for global domination. The only force that can stop them is the mysterious power source controlled by the Ashoka Circle of Nine. When the global nuclear holocaust threatens to extinguish all life on the planet, the Ashoka Circle of Nine unleashes its alien power element into the atmosphere in an attempt to transform human consciousness before time runs out. Their success or failure depends on the chosen Adept who must stop the Wheel of Time and create a bridge for humanity's transit to the Fourth Dimension. The warring powers of East and West may not be able to stop the Last Adept, but his own lover may be his Achilles tendon in the effort to save the human race from extinction. At the midnight hour, the Ashoka Circle of Nine catalyzes a Cosmic Event of chaos and impending doom, causing another planet to hurtle through space on a collision course with Earth. It becomes clear that the Nine have no intention to rescue the planet from destruction as they play out their multi-dimensional Grand Design for purposes known only to them; but even the Nine cannot predict the consequences of their ultimate gamble. “What we are witnessing is the approach of a cosmic time bomb, and we have no idea where or when it may explode. I cannot say if the planet can survive such a cosmic event. Whatever happens, this comet could be the astral agent of a planetary metamorphosis inconceivable in scale.” Ben Willoughby, NASA Physicist, 2021 A.D.

Alan Premesh Bassett is a historian, therapist, novelist, and world traveler. He was born in Key West, Florida, and completed his Bachelors and Masters degrees in European history at Florida State University. He taught world history at Nova University and Russian history at Chapman University until he resumed his postgraduate studies in psychotherapy at Antioch University in Seattle.While traveling in India in 1981, he had a life changing experience when he met the enlightened mystic Osho. He returned to India in 1987 and spent the next ten years working and meditating in the Osho International Commune. During that time, he was trained in the esoteric sciences, past life therapy, and a host of other therapies offered by the Osho International University.For the past two decades, Alan has conducted transpersonal therapy and meditation groups throughout Europe, in India, the United States, and Brazil. After extensive travels through India and Southeast Asia, he moved to the island of Phuket, Thailand in 2003 to focus his work on writing novels and short stories. In December, 2004, the tsunami that took 30,000 lives in southern Thailand struck the beaches less than a mile from his home. "If I had gone to the beach that morning as I often did, I would not be here to tell about it. There was nothing left of the beach. The tsunami destroyed everything in its path, reducing homes, shops, and restaurants to concrete rubble and wooden matchsticks. The tragic loss of so many human lives was heartbreaking."On a return visit to the United States the following year, his plane arrived just in time for Hurricane Katrina, converting the airport into an overnight emergency shelter. These two cataclysmic disasters occurred during the same time that he was writing his series of novels about the 'great debacle' of the twenty-first century. "When you are writing apocalyptic novels, you have to be careful about what experiences you attract," he says.He presently lives in the mountains of the Sierra Norte in Spain where he spends much of his time and energy writing visionary fiction novels and short stories. He has just completed the third volume of The Ashoka Chronicles trilogy, and is presently working on a new novel entitled 'The Seduction of Saint Ursula' which he expects to finish by the end of 2012.
