Bill Douglas, Steve Alten, The Shell Game

What's the background on this Bill Douglas person? Is he the same guy discussed in the "op ed news" thread? Evidently, he is VERY enthusiastic about the imminent release of this novel, whose website (according to the blog at Apt 911B) will feature links to 9/11 Truth sites. Someone claiming to be the founder of the "9/11 Visibility Project" just enrolled at BOTH Portland 9/11 truth yahoo groups, which I take to be a further attempt to generate interest in this project, as described here

Dear 9/11 Truth Seekers Demanding a New 9/11 Investigation,

Today we have an amazing opportunity, if we work together, to launch 9/11 truth into a new mainstream American paradigm.

In the formation of the global 9/11 truth movement there have been landmark moments that catapulted this truth movement forward:

* Mike Ruppert's early work with and his crucial early research (which got me in this)
* The first national truth conference, formed by Carol Brouillet/Ken Jenkins in San Francisco
* The formation of after that conference
* The dissemination of the "Stop the 9/11 Cover Up" signs to groups nationwide (911visibility)
* David Ray Griffin's earth shaking work
* Professor Steven Jones physics research
* Kevin Ryan’s blowing the whistle on inaccuracies of UL’s report to NIST
* The release of Loose Change, which exploded the movement
* The "Eleventh Day of Every Month" Campaign
* The release of
* We Are Change’s national television exposure on 9/11 truth issues
* The release of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth,

Today, we have an opportunity to explode 9/11 truth issues into the mainstream mind, in the form of a soon to be released popular action fiction novel by New York Times Best Selling Novelist, Steve Alten ( If we can get 30,000 copies of this profound novel purchased in the first month of its release, we can drive it to #1 on the New York Times best seller list. The 9/11 truth movement can do this, if we ALL push for it to happen.

Why is this such an incredible opportunity?

1) It is written by a New York Times Best Selling novelist - He's established an "adopt-a-writer" program, that has connected him with hundreds of english departments/teachers in high schools all across America and donated many copies of his book to US troops overseas, with a huge audience there.

2) Americans love action fiction (which "The Shell Game" definitely is)

3) The publisher has already purchased prime display space in the front of Barnes & Noble and Borders stores for its release

4) The author's webmaster is now creating a website for the book's release that will include major 9/11 truth websites, youtube video links, and recommended non-fiction reading on 9/11 (DRG, Ruppert, etc.)

We, the undersigned, urge everyone seeking truth, peace and justice, to not only purchase this new novel, "The Shell Game," but also to email out this appeal to all you know who seek truth, peace and justice in the form of 9/11 truth coming out. In turn, please urge them to do the same with all their contacts and urge them to do the same. We can break 9/11 truth open if we work together and focus on this project for the next 30 days.

Yours in 9/11 truth, peace and justice,

Bill Douglas, 911 Visibility Project
