Just like my character William Steel in my two novels-- I have an obsession with old Japanese swords. We both dreamed of finding a priceless sword created by an old Japanese master like Masamune. Here's an interesting link to an article on one of Masamune's swords.

"INTRIGUING, ADVENTUROUS, DOWN-TO-EARTH NOVEL WITH AN EXCELLENT STORY."
Monday, December 4, 2017
Warm up your holiday season with Nick Auclair's thrilling duo of Steel's adventures.
Add them to your Amazon wishlist (or just treat yourself)
The sequel, Steel's Gold
"In many ways, Steel’s Gold is an old-fashioned thriller, set in an exotic location with plenty of sex and violence, but its overlay of political intrigue and psychological cross-currents give it added depth and resonance. Call it a guilty pleasure with benefits." (Hill Rag)
Thank you and enjoy!

Lots of recent reporting in the Philippine newspapers about the source of the Marcos's wealth. An article outlining where some their vast fortune could have come from is linked below. President Marcos claimed he found the Yamashita treasure while he was a guerrilla fighting the Japanese during WWII. The picture taken on March 11, 1974 shows former Japanese imperial army soldier Hiroo Onoda (right) offering his military sword to Ferdinand Marcos to express his surrender at Malacañang Palace in Manila. Onoda, who hid in the Philippine jungles for three decades because he did not believe World War II was over, died in Tokyo on January 17, 2014, at the age of 91
