Inspiration and synopses of the trilogy
While on vacation in Antigua in 1995, Upnick met an Englishman named Sidney Dowse. Mr. Dowse was one of the men who escaped
from Sagan, the prison camp portrayed in the 1963 movie, The Great Escape. Mr. Dowse had information that was not in any
history book. Dowse related events both from his own recollections and also those he had been told by his associate,
Stewart Menzies, the head of MI-6 during World War II. Upnick made a promise to Sidney Dowse that he would not repeat anything
he had revealed to him until after his death. Mr. Dowse died in 2008.
Mr. Dowse’s incredible recollections inspired the writing of Time Will Tell,
Future Tense and the final book in the trilogy 2052.
Certain facts, unknown to history, are woven into these stories. Upnick reveals that Winston Churchill actually knew the date and
time of the planned attack on Pearl Harbor. What did he decide to tell Roosevelt? Menzies, who met daily with Winston Churchill,
reported that unknown, advanced technology used by men hoping to aid the British was crucial to the effort. Did time travelers
help the Allies win the war? Menzies thought so.
Future Tense, the sequel to Time Will Tell, takes place twenty
years later, in the years 2022-2028. International chaos ensues after Putin’s death creates a power vacuum and Russia is ruled by
the Mob. Enormous deficits in the U.S. endanger the Union. External threats cause global havoc and do not bode well for our planet’s
future but supernaturally gifted children and friendly aliens come to the rescue.
2052 continues the saga with the children and grandchildren of the major players from
Time Will Tell coming to the fore. Can our planet be saved? Will it have a future?
