Max H. Flindt Born in 1915 in San Jose, California. The son of pioneer science-fiction writer, Homer Eon Flindt. Ardent studies in chemistry, physics, biology, paleontology, and anthropology led him to a life dedicated to independent scientific research. Former posts include that of Senior Laboratory Technician under Nobelists Dr. Edward Teller, Dr. Glenn Scaborg, and Dr. Melvin Calvin at Lawrence Radiation Laboratory, Berkeley, California; Laboratory Analyst in Research at Lockheed, where he engaged in highly classified space research; and research on human blood anomalies under the late Professor Emeritus Percival Baumberger of Stanford University. Flindt was the first to scientifically document from biological evidence the possibility that mankind may be a hybrid from a prehistoric union of terrestrial humanoids and starmen, which is this book's main thesis. He privately published a pamphlet entitled "On Tiptoe Beyond Darwin" (copyright 1962), which was later expanded to short book length (copyright 1965). The present book is a greatly expanded version, with much additional scientific data to further substantiate this concept. 180,000 copies were sold in the paperback edition in the 1970's. We are sorry to say that Max passed over in October of 2004. We hope you enjoy his work. Otto O.
