In the very first Wyler Scott novel published in 1983, we learned about another world. This is where the Sasquatch came from. We learned that time doesn’t flow like normal there, it has two suns, a shielded ranch, a desert, distant mountains.
In the third Wyler Scott novel “The Trail To East Mohave” -1995, the ‘other world’ is again revisited and this time its personality becomes abundantly clear, this is no Shangri-la. It has rabbits that hunt in packs and are meat eaters. It has Ostrich like creatures as mean as a bull. Bullets when fired will stop, turn and go off in a different direction. It has meteor showers with them falling in the tens of thousands like hot diamonds from the sky. In essence it is far worse this time around.
The June Lake Incident will begin answering many questions about the other world readers have been chomping at for quite a spell. Like where is it? Is it in our universe? Or is it in another dimension? Why the time space thing? Meanwhile, let’s take a quick glimpse of the other world, a sneak peek if you will at what awaits us. All on the new cover.
Note the larger sun on the left and on the right, behind the clouds is the smaller sun. Just tucked away behind the right mountain peak.

The original title “Indio Indian” was to be number 6 in the Sheriff Wyler Scott Series. This actually is rounded out by a name change found appropriate here and by many others. The title has changed officially to “Tahquitz” pronounced (taw-kwish)
Tahquitz is well known in the Palm Springs area and there is a main road named after him. This appeared in the last WS story number 5 “The Chocolate Mountain Murders” and is a real place. Also, Tahquitz Rock stands sentinel over Idyllwild California. Also known as Lily Rock, it has for years been a well known haunt for rock climbers from all over. Points toward the sky like a giant thumb. Tahquitz also has an entire canyon named after him. This story is a sort of mini-sequel to “The Chocolate Mountain Murders” and has a direct tie-in to that Wyler Scott novel #5. It should provide an excellent read with lots of action and some surprises as well. Expect to also meet new characters. The novel is on schedule for the first half of 2014, though this could always change depending on circumstances.
The decision to postpone this title was based on the quality of getting it out before Halloween. I had wanted to get it out by Halloween 2013 but to do it would have been a rush job and I do not like doing that to my readers. So the decision was made to postpone it one year until Halloween 2014 for availability as it would be all finished and ready to go by then. It also gives additional readers of my original CalHouse trilogy a chance to read into it. Yes there was once a CalHouse audio book too, but that is long out of publication. No further sequels after 3 will be added to the series. CalHouse is an acronym for California Housed Islands.
September 12 2013 for wide distribution. This is the 5th in the Sheriff Wyler Scott series and has a direct tie-in with its 2014 sequel “Indio Indian” within the greater Sheriff Wyler Scott series title still pending.

Yes I do all of my own cover artwork.
Some have asked this question and whether I have been there. Yes I have and yes they are real. A lookup on Google provides this link for those interested in this most desolate range. Sometimes we find beauty in simplicity. Where there is nothing there is something. Way of the world. It always has been and always will be.
