The Conover Saga
by Denise Felt
When I first began writing UFO stories, they seemed to parallel my favorite classic movies in odd little ways. Since UFO takes place at a film studio, I let my imagination play with the idea. Each of the Conover Saga stories has correlations to a classic movie, usually black and white. Not every story mentions the movie it's playing with, but every story has at least one clue, either in a well-known line or a character's name. I hope you'll enjoy reading the Conover Saga as much as I enjoyed writing it.

The Conover Saga Revisited
I know I've said for years that this saga was finished. Complete as is. Well, in the world of writing, never say never. So here I am with another Conover Saga story, this one taking place about twenty years after the last saga story. I don't know if this story will be the beginning of another series. But it wanted to be written. The story can be found with the original saga.
