Operation Ivy Bells is a first-person account of the nuclear submarine USS Halibut and a team of saturation divers led by Mac McDowell fearlessly facing death on the bottom of the Sea of Okhotsk while tapping Soviet underwater communication cables and retrieving missile parts from the seafloor, gathering intel that tipped the scales to win the Cold War. The story is reality-based — the author led a team that accomplished much of what is depicted in the book.
THE STARCHILD TRILOGY: SLINGSHOT, THE STARCHILD COMPACT, THE IAPETUS FEDERATION.
Building the largest machine in history, enabling cheap access to space; discovering that Saturn’s moon Iapetus is a starship; forming a compact with the builders to advance their technology; using artificial wormholes to rescue millions from a global Jihad; developing FTL starships, and pushing out into the Galaxy.
Constructing the first space launch-loop stretching 2,000 km between Baker and Jarvis Islands in the Equatorial Pacific. Slingshot’s characters loom larger than life as they work, play, and love from Seattle’s world financial district, to the ocean bottom off Baker Island, to the edge of space 80 km above.
Jon Stock and crew travel to Saturn’s moon, Iapetus. While underway they deal with a Jihadist stowaway. They discover Iapetus to be a derelict starship and meet the Founders, descendants of the starship builders. Their revelations impact the entire Solar System with momentous implications going backward and forward in time, paving the way for a joint push to the distant reaches of the Galaxy.
The Iapetus Federation expands Solar Systemwide, while the Caliphate sweeps Earth. The Starchild Institute creates wormhole portals, using them to rescue groups not yet overrun by the Caliphate. Earth sinks into medievalism, while human activity shifts to the Iapetus Federation. Humans settle every potentially habitable spot in the Solar System and begin expanding into the rest of the Galaxy.
Robert G. Williscroft firmly establishes that the sky is not falling. By using scientific research and solid reasoning, he explains some of the most disturbing problems facing our nation including global warming, the safety of nuclear power, the politics of education, and the oxymoron of government efficiency. With a clear message, he discerns what is true from what is merely Chicken Little gibberish.
The SWIC Daedalus Files is in production. (SWIC is SEALS Winged Insertion Command.) The book contains the four Daedalus novellas: Daedalus, Daedalus LEO, Daedalus Squad, and Daedalus Combat. The four stories are about the development and deployment of a hard-shell wingsuit called the Gryphon. The wingsuit is first tested from 80,000 meters, then from Low Earth Orbit by one individual, then by six together, and then it is deployed in a combat venue. It will be released in October 2019.
Using a new Gryphon hard-shell wingsuit, Tiger Baily, irreverent member of the Navy SEALS Winged Insertion Command, makes a harrowing first experimental base jump from the edge of Space, the Fred Noonan Skyport 80,000 meters above Jarvis Island in the Equatorial Pacific. Tiger’s target, which he must reach to survive, is Kiritimati Island, a tiny isolated atoll 379 km northeast of Jarvis over ever-threatening and oh-so-deep ocean waters.
Following his successful base jump from Fred Noonan Skyport, Tiger Bailey undertakes the next step in the development process of the Gryphon hardshell wingsuit, a drop from Low Earth Orbit. In orbit, he encounters equipment problems that nearly kill him and doom the project, but ultimately, his skill and perseverance save the day.
Anticipated publishing date: The end of August 2019
After his successful proof-of-concept drop from Low Earth Orbit (LEO), Tiger Bailey's squad undertakes the next step in the development process of the Gryphon hardshell wingsuit, a coordinated drop from LEO by six team members. They tried to plan for every conceivable contingency, however, Mother Nature intervened with disastrous results.

SEALS Winged Insertion Command (SWIC) has based Tiger Bailey's operational SWIC-3 out of Howland Island near the Equator in the central Pacific, just a few kilometers away from Baker Island, location for the socket where Amelia Earhart Skytower terminates. Tiger Bailey's squad is tasked to drop from Low Earth Orbit (LEO) to Mayotte Island, northwest of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean, to rescue a U.S. Senator and his family who were taken hostage by pirates.

A story about using Special Relativity to your advantage. Baby Billy is born into the circle that includes Starman Jones and Space Pup. They want to take Billy with them on their journeys throughout the universe. But Baby Billy needs to be older. So Starman Jones and Space Pup journey to Sirius and back, traveling very, very fast. The result is that when they return, they arrive on Billy’s 9th birthday, although they, themselves, have barely aged. Thus, they become Billy’s Relativity Birthday Present. Endorsed by Dr. Frank Drake of SETI fame.

From the secure life of a rural pastor in Montana to the shadow of the Iron Curtain, the life of Paul Williscroft reads like a novel.

Paul and Gladys Williscroft had a mission in life: to offer faith, hope and love to people who did not and could not know. Their mission was made possible by the ingenuity of those who persevere in love.
