The Wing-Friends and Other Books

In Blogger's slideshows images are greatly reduced, so lose much of their impact. And captions added to them in Picasa Albums vanish, so the images shown above are: the Milky Way, the Orion Nebula, Earth, Earth with New Zealand circled, New Zealand, Auckland & the Hauraki Gulf, Waiheke Island, some native NZ forest, a Fantail and chicks, various doves, etc.

(If you want to see the first ten images in their original size, they are in a posting made on the 24th of November 2011.)

My book The Wing-Friends is an imaginative tale of a small brave boy, a magical adventure, a magnificent Pegasus and the wonderful Kingdom of the Pegasi. It has been given very good reviews, and virtually every reader on Goodreads has so far awarded it five stars. It is available here. Some of my other writings are available as e-books, such as The Lower Deck, which is an over-the-top take on Waiheke happenings--sort of.

Section 25 of the Crimes Act 1961 says: 'Ignorance of law--the fact that an offender is ignorant of the law is not an excuse for any offence committed by him or her.'

But the ruling by the 'Independent' Police Conduct Authority's on the failure of the police to prosecute GCSB spies for illegally spying on Kim Dotcom and scores of New Zealanders says in effect that criminal law does not apply to spooks. They can be as ignorant, careless, stupid or crass as they please and do as they please, but when they break the law they cannot be touched.

It's obvious why. They cannot tell the difference between the rule of law and the laws of quantum physics--that bit about disconnected particles, which even if they are on opposite sides of the universe are 'entangled', so one controls the other and affects it instantly. Einstein called it 'spooky action at a distance.' They must have thought, 'We're spooks', so that obviously applies to us. We're entangled with everybody else, so we can control and affect them anyway we please.' Simple really.
