You can go to News and Reviews, where you can learn more about the first edition of the Lost Stories saga entitled Lost Stories for All Ages.

No, not necessarily. There is no required order to read The Lost Stories Journal. But it is important to read as many different sections as possible, in order that you might begin to see the subject matter as a whole.

Will there be more issues of The Lost Stories Journal?
Yes. Because our main focus is rediscovering and shedding new light on what has already been dug up and translated, we plan on telling many more lost stories. Our most exciting work is the on-going process of collating all the information, piecing together the many clues we have in our arsenal, and discovering a “pattern of patterns” that exist along the way.

How did you come up with the idea for The Lost Stories Journal?
It was really an idea born out of necessity. After more than twenty years of researching history, philosophy, science, and theology, W. Kent Smith wrote the book Lost Stories for All Ages. (read Kent’s filmography…) Once he began to distribute the book, numerous questions were raised regarding the origin of the present manuscript. In an attempt to explain the many historic and scientific facts that substantiate its creation, Kent decided to discuss some of the factors involved in the production of the book. The result was the premiere issue of The Lost Stories Journal.

Can you tell me about W. Kent’s background?
Ever since his Whittier College days, Kent has endeavored to show that the historical process is a vast puzzle capable of being pieced together. His entire life as a writer has been spent researching history, philosophy, theology, science, and technology. It was this lifelong pursuit which eventually came to shape a unique perspective for Kent on the interconnectedness of all history. (read Kent’s biography…)

What are some of the influences for Kent’s work?
Mr. Smith has had many influences during his life. As a young man, Kent was particularly drawn to the scientist and artist Leonardo da Vinci, renowned for his ability to harmonize artistic expression and scientific inquiry. Add to that mix, the inspiration of Rod Serling, Arthur C. Clarke, James A. Michener, and Ray Bradbury. Then, as an adult, there came the added blend of C.S. Lewis’ allegoric style and Francis Ford Coppola’s cinematic style.

Can you tell me something about the author of the book?
W. Kent Smith’s offbeat approach to history has been a source of considerable amazement to critics ever since his first book, Lost Stories for All Ages. Since its publication in November of 1999, Smith has been acknowledged as a resourceful and meticulous commentator on historical figures and events, even when challenging traditional viewpoints. Although some skeptics have taken exception to his version of history, Smith has always produced solid evidence for the authenticity of his work. (read Kent’s filmography…)

How did Kent become interested in extra-biblical literature?
That was something that happened en route to writing a political thriller based on events spoken of in the last book of The Bible, that is to say, The Book of Revelation. Kent’s research led to many amazing discoveries, which in turn led him into unexpected directions. Smith’s desire to create a believable and accurate depiction of futuristic events led him into a lifelong study of the chronology and symbolism contained in Revelation. In order to properly depict a story about the culmination of all the prophecies of The Bible, he needed to familiarize himself with every available text telling the story of prophecy itself. Eventually, this search led to other sources—ones that had, for whatever reason, become stigmatized down through the ages. From this never-ending quest through biblical and then apocryphal sources, Lost Stories for All Ages emerged.
