ARTICLES ALPHABETICAL BY AUTHOR

There are several types of articles on the Secret History of the Wold Newton Universe site ranging from pure information about the Wold Newton Universe to speculative pieces  to a mixture a both.

The presence of an article on these pages does not necessarily constitute an integration of that article's theories and speculation into the history described in The Wold Newton Universe Crossover Chronology or the Secret Chronology.  This is especially true of articles not written by the the maintainer of this site, Dennis E. Power. If anyone is interested in knowing which of the following articles which I do think fit, for the most part fit, into the created universe of the site I will glad tell them via email.

The purpose of the article page and with the rest of the site is to bring attention of the works of Philip Jose Farmer and his Wold Newton Family concept and to encourage creative and enjoyable ways to explore that concept.

Days of Future Past : Before the Enterprise 

A carefully researched piece which serves to connect the franchises of Alien, Cthulu, Star Trek, Batman, Iron Man, Spiderman, and Judge Dredd together.  The logical premise behind the timeline was that the "utopia" of every Star Trek episode was a fraud, hiding a militaristic government  To make things even more interesting, when one adds the factor of the "Temporians", based on th ecryogenically frozen secret society of Centurion's Empire by Sean McMullen, you have a situation wherein a secret society has been manipulating the situation since the beginnings of the Roman Empire.  I hope you will like it.  More additions can be made, but for now, here is the future as presented just before the events of "Broken Bow.
