''What You Need To Know About Human Sex is a no-nonsense sex education book for readers of all ages. Dr.
Graham Clingbine candidly discusses sexual identity and sexual orientation; issues of society, religion, and
ethics; criminal sexual activity, such as sexual assault or human trafficking for forced prostitution; and much
more. "There is probably no such thing as sexually 'normal'. Perhaps a range of behaviours and attitudes cover
what most people would consider to be normal... A good rule of thumb may be that whatever people do or think,
providing there is no harm done to others, then those things are acceptable." What You Need To Know About
Human Sex is an excellent, thoroughly accessible, and non-judgmental primer, especially recommended for
high school public library collections.''

Review by NetGalley of Release From Stasis-The Future is Now by Dr G Clingbine: 4 out of 5 stars
Full Text: John is the last scientist left on planet earth, which now orbits a dying sun that is no longer yellow,
but red and pounding the earth periodically with lethal doses of radiation. John is the last one left. He has two
options, carry out the Great Plan or flee the... planet in search of another more hospitable one to start anew.
John lives in an age hundreds of generations in the future, where humanity's features have evolved and
changed. He has been tasked with the Great Plan, to use the advanced knowledge his time possesses and his
time portal device to travel back to old earth and bring back humans from the past and try to genetically
engineer them to be able to survive on earth and withstand the old sun's detrimental effects. Humankind's
brain capacity has increased tremendously, but they have mostly discarded feelings and emotion, so John
uses and discards them in his experiments, in pursuit of a viable model to repopulate the earth. However, as
he brings back those from the past and takes a wife to start a family of his own, he finds that he is starting to
develop feelings and a conscience. He finds himself reevaluating his cold, clinical acts and experiments, and
questioning what it means to be human. He has developed the ability to use mind control on his genetically
altered humans, but decides to let them have some freedom, should he be forced to flee to another planet
with them. Release from Stasis follows John's meticulous preparations to follow through with the Great Plan.
He is cold and calculating and whether his human "experiments" live or die matters not to him, except to
achieve his ends. It is definitely a thinking person's novel- not one to consider a thriller with lots of action. It
does have some twists at the end, and is undeniably well researched, and makes you ponder some existential
questions. . .what if aliens were actually future humans travelling back in time to visit us? What are the
qualities that make humanity worth saving as a species? If we lose our empathy and compassion, forsaking it
in the pursuit of knowledge, can we still call ourselves human? Is humanity destined to destroy ourselves by
dividing into meaningless factions, even when our world itself is threatened? I liked this novel. It isn't light
reading, and the scientific explanations aren't for everyone, but it made me think about my humanity as I was
reading it, and that made it well worth it.

Three exciting book releases will captivate readers. Let's take a look at each book in turn. Do take out a little of your time to read to the very end. Thankyou!
Dr Graham Clingbine’s enlightening new book What You Need To Know About Human Sex is informative, educative and in some parts, entertaining. Many aspects of human sexuality are still taboo and not spoken about even in so-called modern society. Such areas are reviewed and discussed openly and objectively without the inclusion of the author’s personal opinions. Readers are challenged throughout the book to consider their own views relating to sex in their own and other cultures, identify any personal prejudicial thoughts about the sexual proclivities of others and to question their own sexual behaviour.
Having identified the scope of human sexual activity, What You Need To Know About Human Sex covers controversial areas including sexual identity, sexual orientation (homosexuality, heterosexuality, bisexuality etc) and the influences of cultural tradition, religious dogma and ethical views on human sexual behaviour. The varying degrees of acceptability of practices in different societies are described such as for female genital mutilation, circumcision and sado-masochism. The legal constraints on sexual activity in different cultures are looked at along with how legislation varies in different countries (such as for the age of consent to sex and marriage) and crimes such as rape and child molestation (paedophilia). Various behaviours are discussed such as group sex, bondage, sex toy use, fetishism, swinging couples, dogging, bukkake, orgies and multi-partner marriage. Other areas covered are health and safety (including contraception), the nature of sexual attraction, sexual health, sex education and sexually transmitted diseases (including Chlamydia, genital warts, syphilis, gonorrhea, AIDS and others), how the body functions during sex (sexual responses) and sexual dysfunctions in both men and women (such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and frigidity). The changing role and availability of pornography in society is also reviewed with a look at the lives of a few real-life infamous male and female porn stars. There is even a review of sex acts, myths, literature, artifacts and manuscripts (such as the Kama Sutra) throughout history.
What You Need To Know About Human Sex is an informative and essential read in a society that still ignores a lot of unusual but by no means uncommon behaviours. It is written in a very easy to read style and the reader will not only enjoy reading it but find it informative and educational.The book disrobes many myths and sheds much-needed light on many aspects of sex, encouraging the growing acceptance of different sexual identities and providing information useful to people of all backgrounds. The information will benefit people of all ages especially young adults forming their views of the world in our diverse culture. Health organisations and educational establishments will also find this book a useful tool to use with patients and students.
‘Disclosure: The Future is Now’ will have a double appeal to readers. The fascinating science fiction story will engage the reader and provoke visions of how life on Earth could change in the future. The book also has a section documenting current and past UFO sightings, alleged alien abductions and various paranormal phenomena.
Anyone interested in the science fiction genre will find ‘Disclosure: The Future is Now’ both interesting and ‘thought-provoking’. It is written in an easy-to-read style and is appropriate for an adult market of any age. The story relates to time travel and involves the appearance of an unknown entity from a future hostile planet Earth. The intriguing story will captivate the reader and immerse him or her in the unusual life experiences of Kevin Powell and his dilemma to choose between saving the future of mankind and the well-being of his daughter Amy whom he loves dearly. Who will Kevin choose to save? What would you do?
Although a work of fiction, the final section of ‘Disclosure: The Future is Now’ documents a comprehensive, interesting and enlightening review of the history of UFO sightings, alien abductions, secret military bases, alleged government ‘black ops’ and conspiracy theories which put the story into context. This absorbing part of the book will provide an informative and fascinating read both to readers without any knowledge of these subject areas and also to individuals and UFO/paranormal organisations already having specialist knowledge.
‘Release from Stasis: The Future is Now’ is set in the distant future. Planet Earth is a much altered place in which the sun has aged. The expanded dull red sun is bombarding the Earth with deadly solar particles. John Powell is the last surviving human and is battling to save mankind from extinction by abducting humans from the past and genetically engineering them to survive in the harsh environment. John’s aim is to repopulate the Earth as part of a Great Plan for survival. However, an unprecedented violent solar eruption kills his experimental subjects and he has to abandon the Earth with his family and a few other survivors. John and his family are maintained in a healthy state in stasis vats and survive a long space voyage. The other humans aboard the spacecraft procreate during a multi-generational journey. When he is finally released from stasis still aboard the spacecraft, John and his family are shocked to discover that the other human occupants have formed two astral religions, the Muons and the Pions. The two groups are socially divided and at war. The spacecraft continues on its journey and lands on a habitable planet leaving the Muons and Pions to sort out their own destiny. Escaping from the turmoil, John and his family utilise a time portal device to return to Earth and start over. John’s daughter-in-law Jane finally gets to meet her genetically engineered daughter Amy she has not seen since birth. What shock awaits her?
