Salisbury, England Faces Economic Disaster:
Sky News reports one month after the chemical attack on Salisbury by Russia that local businesses are facing economic disaster. Even local patrons don’t want to grocery shop in Salisbury, get petrol, or buy children’s boys. They would rather go out of their way to a different town. And tourist buses don’t stop there anymore. In 2012 on our way to Stonehenge tourist buses stopped in the center of town as a bathroom stop. On the way back, we stopped again at Salisbury Cathedral to have lunch at the Refectory Restaurant at Salisbury Cathedral. Little did Cheops Books LLC know then that this was the last time it would ever be able to visit the repository of the original Magna Carta and see the location where Dora and Edward Ware were married in 1934.
On May 4 Cheops Book LLC will publish Salisbury Affair with an expanded afterword about the Salisbury Incident.

Russia and Unlocking Trinity:
The fate of Russia is almost totally within US hands. Russia knows it too behind the facade it tries to project to its own people. That was why Putin was the first to call Bush after 9/11. Russia is at the bottom of the pecking order in Europe. It is on the outer fringe of civilization where it has been since the Middle Ages, the last buffer against the Far Eastern barbarian hordes who could otherwise have overrun Europe and instead overran only Russia i. e. the Monguls. Russia didn’t have a literature until much later than any other country in Western Europe. It lagged behind to the point that Peter the Great visited the Netherlands as a model. He built St. Petersburg to look more like a European city. To this day St. Petersburg is Russia’s western face. Russia had a serf system that didn’t get abolished until well into the 19th century whereas in England it never fully took hold even in the Middle Ages. For instance you had the famous Magna Carta instead. And in America there never was a serf class at all. In Russia they couldn’t shake the Middle Ages until one hundred years ago this month, the Revolution of 1917, when America was already an industrial giant and Britain’s Empire ruled the waves, having a couple centuries before come up with capitalism itself.
Russia suffered the worst of any country in WW1 and WW2, much worse than the loser, Germany itself. Being at the foot of the West Russia is dependent on the welfare of western civilization and particularly America. If America started to fall, Russia would feel the worst impact.
Not being a democracy Russian leaders can go where they want abroad as long as we don’t challenge them which we don’t tend to do because it would destabilize Russia and Russia would fall and create the sort of chaos that led to WW1. America is hindered in its foreign operations by its isolationism, etc. But when it wants to it now rules the waves with Britain’s assistance.
Russia features as a setting in the historical thriller Unlocking Trinity, about the creation of the atom bomb during WW2. Stalin was spying on the scientists at Los Alamos. Dora and Edward get involved in the Cheops Books LLC Edward Ware Thrillers at War novel Unlocking Trinity.
