New Book: Somewhere Safe – Uranium City

book cover of "Somewhere Safe: Uranium City - the Lure and the Lore"

Author CC Phillips has a new book out, based on his time living in Uranium City from 1986 to 1994. Interestingly, his book stops just before my first trip back in 1996. From the website:

Evolving from my keyboard, dictated by Destiny, this narrative holds the promise of fulfillment for all those lost prayers, hopes and dreams …

Note: I will be publishing an excerpt in the next week or two.
